Libby Hill Park Family Portraits

It’s crazy to think that the last time I saw the Brown family they were welcoming home Elizabeth as a brand new baby!  You may remember that session and her gorgeous floral bow! Not to mention Joseph’s camera take over and the cuteness that instilled!  This is something I especially love about the milestone package, I get to watch families grow over a year.  I can’t get over how much bigger Elizabeth is and how much older Joseph seems!  Not to mention seeing Elizabeth grow from a sleepy little infant to a baby with rolls for DAYS!  She is ADORABLE!  Joseph becomes more and more active with every session we do and it’s so fun.  At one point I turned to Lindsey and had to say “so sorry for all the screeching!” as Joseph and I played stormtroopers and I died valiantly as he shot me first.  🙂

So fun.  So so so much fun.Read More »

Watermelon Smash – One Year Portraits

It’s always a good sign when you roll up to a session to meet the family for the first time and you connect instantly with the family and kids.  I arrived to Forrest Hill Park and walked up to meet Kelsie and her husband Brent and within seconds their gorgeous daughter Maddie did what I always hope the kiddos will do, she opened her arms and reached out to me.  AHHH my little heart almost exploded!!  She got passed over to me and I knew in that moment – this was going to be a GREAT session!   Read More »

Mommy and Me Mini Giveaway Winners!

These two!!!!  These two were SO FUN at our session!  Little Miss Sulli Grace is a firecracker!  I just LOVE kids with big personalities and really hope that Sterling and my kids will be full of energy and personality like Sulli.  She was a HOOT!  Very smart and a great talker, willing to listen and do anything for her mom.  She is fun and silly but also very caring and snuggly.  Best part of the session was at the end when she very sweetly came up to me and said “Okay Alex, all done with pictures.” and then preciously lifted her arms up for me to pick her up and carry her.  ::SWOON::Read More »
