Baby M

Sweet Baby M, welcome, welcome, welcome! Know this, your parents are absolutely smitten with your face, your hair, your toes, your sounds... I'm thankful to have met you, thank you for being sooooooo awesome. Seriously, you loved everything I had in mind for our session. I hope to run into you again in the future. I do know some of your buddies after all :) 

Baby D

Baby D has just basically joined 2 families.  Moms are best friends, dads play golf together all the time, doggies often hang out too.  And his new best friend just arrived! 

Yes little guy, there will be lots of hanging out, play dates, riding dogs and getting into trouble.  So happy you landed in such great arms.

Baby R

Meet the newest Cloud Baby! This cutie's parents are my bride and groom from 2014, he looks just like his father!  His dad's passion is food, so yeah, I brought my itty bitty utensils for him to hold.  His mother is a teacher and having a blackboard was downright essential.

Sometimes, a baby sleeps right through their session.  Rarely, they look right at me and give me a big smile, he did just that... twice! 

Welcome Baby R!

Baby P

Baby P has super smart parents, they decided to do their maternity photos on the same day as the baby shower, very efficient!

Once she arrived, I went over to their home for some newborn goodness.  She slept almost the whole time, she also gave me a long stare and a soft smile.  Welcome to the world Baby P!

Baby L

Baby L and I seriously bonded today.  He slept on my chest while waiting for daddy to come back from an errand.  Before that, he let me bend him and pose him at will.  I love his soccer outfit the most.  Cutest MVP, right?

During our maternity session, mom and dad braved the cold and couldn't wait to show their team spirit.  Time will tell which team he'll root for, in the mean time, stay little; you little baby you.

Baby C

I get genuinely excited about the homes these babies get to live in, and the parents they get to have.  Baby C is one of these lucky souls.  Mom and dad are just over the moon with this child, and rightfully so, he arrived just shy of their first wedding anniversary.  He is one of the smallest babies I've ever photographed.  That, and his sweet pterodactyl noises won me over too. Welcome to earth Baby C!

Baby A

Baby A was 5 days old when we met, face to face that is.  We had already sort of met during the maternity session.  She really enjoys sleeping on her side, when I placed her on the baby bed, she just melted into the soft jersey.  Mom told that's exactly how she sleeps, so I didn't move her at all.  She also loves being a human burrito and I love making burritos.  It was great to finally see her face, mostly though, it was great playing with her hair.  Thanks for letting me bend you for a bit, Baby A.

Baby K

Baby K has super parents, daddy is a firefighter and mommy is a nurse.  Pretty lucky baby if you ask me! She was so good at modeling al her looks.  She started with her baby firefighter uniform, then got burritoed, and finished up with Christmas cheer.  Thank you for a sweet, cuddly day Baby K.

Baby T

I had the absolute honor of photographing their engagement, her boudoir photos, their wedding, their maternity shoot and now this little guy.  This little baby, is so lucky to have these parents; so kind, so caring.

I had a great time bending and squishing Baby T, I love his cute face and stylish yet simple pants.  Welcome to this crazy, beautiful world little guy!
