Babies: "W" turns one!

It seems like only yesterday when I was taking little man W's newborn portraits and here he is today,
celebrating his very first birthday! There are a few things you should know about "W." First of all, he has the greatest dimples EVER! Second, he has a really good arm when it comes to hurling blocks across the room--the kid may have a bright future in baseball. And finally, this boy loves his momma. As a mom of a little boy, I can attest to the fact that boys just naturally love their moms and W is no exception. And moms eat that kind of stuff up. 

Mr. Blue Eyes...

Mr. Look-At-My-Awesome-Dimples...

Mr. I-Rock-Black-and-White...

And finally, no first birthday session would be complete without a cake...

Happy #1 Little Man W!!!

Newborns: Meet Baby A

In 2008, I had the pleasure of photographing Karl and Jennifer's  beautiful Independence Day wedding. Imagine my excitement when Jennifer called me last month and announced that she and Karl were expecting their first child, a daughter! Last week, I was privileged to meet and photograph the newest member of Karl and Jennifer's family, angelic Baby A. She is preciousness, defined. 

I was thrilled when I was going through the images from Baby A's session and came across this...
(It's my favorite!)

Jennifer looked fantastic! You would never guess that she had a baby the week before. 

You can just tell with some dads that they're naturals when it comes to their newborns.
Karl is a natural. And he didn't even mind getting pooped on. 

When my little boy was a baby, I took hundreds of pictures of him and sadly acknowledged that he would never be as little as he was that day. Babies grow so fast  and it's a real treasure to be able
to look back on their newborn portraits and marvel at how small and fragile your baby was in the beginning.

Baby A was a total sweetheart for our session.
Welcome to parenthood, Karl and Jennifer!
