Chase | one year

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts.
Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me…
Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
~Shel Silverstein

Chase is a beautiful boy with a bright future! Anything can happen, and he has great parents to help him learn that! As I edited these pictures from Friday, I could still hear his squeaks and squalls of excitement! He’s a happy boy and the world is full of adventure! Happy Birthday, Chase!!!

{sneak peek} CHASE | one year

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

I have been enjoying a cozy winter with my special kiddos, but now that its spring, the shooting season has begun!  I am overjoyed to have been able to kick off the spring portrait season with Baby Chase… he’s a whole year now (almost)!!  Holy cow!  And he is just so much cuteness and kissable chub in one little one year old body!  Look at this winning smile:

“I love these little people; and it is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us.”
― Charles Dickens

Babies!  Ah!  They grow up so fast!  I loved seeing Chase again!  Half a year has passed and he is sooo adorable!  Still lots of yummy chub, deep blue eyes, a smile that will make you smile right back!  See for yourself!

“…and she loved a little boy very, very much -even more than she loved herself.” ~Shel Silverstein

My baby boy turned one this month!  It’s been a great year!  He’s such a fun little man and we all love him so much!  Here are the pictures I took on his birthday:

This awesome and adorable mustache cake was made by Leia over at Eat it and Say Yum!  I didn’t get to try any, but Kal demolished it!  He was so excited and he dove right in and got super messy!

The tie Kal is wearing is from What a Fancy Pansy.

Leo and his lovely mommy came to visit me when he was three months! This adorable man’s parents are both pilots so incorporating that into the pictures was a must!

Grey | 1 year

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

My cute little nephew Grey turned one this month! If you missed his newborn session, check it out here. We stuck with a little bit of the space theme and incorporated my own handmade cardboard rocket. I had a lot of fun putting the set together for this special little man! We met up at the beautiful Crystal Bridges in Bentonville, Arkansas for his session. Check out the pictures below:

Baby Grey | 5 Months

Saturday, June 29th, 2013

These pictures were taken back in December when we were visiting over the Christmas Holiday. I had to snap a few shots of my handsome little nephew while we were there.

Grey’s parents did a really awesome looking outer space theme for his room. Almost 100% DIY. Here he is hanging out in the origami stars.

Pretty girl, Lauren turned 1 in November! It was so much fun getting to see her every few months last year for pictures! That first year is full of changes, and I loved documenting them and seeing her smiling face! She also LOVED and went crazy with the cake smash! This gorgeous cake (fitting for a the little princess that Lauren is) is from Leia over at Eat It and Say Yum.
