Princess Olivia 24 Days Old

Gracelyn Olivia was born October 28. She is very precious yet she has a lot to say for such a tiny soul. She will let you know how she feels by giving you the finger (sticking up her middle finger) as she did to me multiple times during this session.
Gracelyn, also known as Grace, Gracie or by her one of her older brothers "Princess Olivia".
While getting ready for the session, little Gracie had the hiccups and was not too concerned with sleeping. Thank goodness for the Baby White Noise app (found on the Google Play store for those interested) and some comfort rocking, she went right to sleep.
In the short amount of time she was asleep, I am happy to say we got some seriously cute photos to make you have baby fever.

Baby Trey's 5 month Holiday Photos

This little chap turned 5 months old recently. I am surprised to see he was sitting up so well. We are happy to have gotten so many great shots. Even if he was not looking at the camera, it still shows his personality and charm. Baby Trey was so dapper in his suspenders and "newspaper boy" cap. He's like a little lad straight from the 1920's era. Even older brother came to join in on the fun towards the end.

Fall Mini Sessions

If you are local, check out this awesome Fall Mini Session scheduled. You don't want to pass this up!

Baby's 1st Pumpkin Patch

Baby Trey is only 4 months old and got to enjoy his first pumpkin patch this past weekend. Sitting mainly on his own yet protected by some extremely heavy pumpkins and daddy on the side watching to catch him, I was able to catch some cute photos.

The baby leg warmers were purchased from Livvy Laine's and the shirt was courtesy of Walmart. The shirt (in case you can't read it) says "Don't Scare Me I Poop Easily"

Aidan By The Creek

I had the pleasure of taking photos of my oldest son, Aidan, this past weekend. He recently turned 7 years old and I wanted to use him as a test subject for one of the new locations I have found. This location is so versatile and fun.

I am hoping to be able to use this location for some Fall Mini Sessions coming up.

Here is a sample of the photos.

Adalynn and Harper -NICU Preemie Prints

I was contacted by the NICU neighbor of Evan (posted below) who also wanted photos done of her twin girls, Adalynn and Harper. Sadly, I received this email regarding their information from the Preemie Prints organization.
Terra, the mother, states she had triplets on November 29th, 2011, they were born at 28 weeks. Two of the babies, Adalynn and Harper, are still in the NICU and we lost Scarlett, the smallest and last born at 12 days old. They have had a long go in the NICU but we are finally getting near seeing the end of their stay hopefully! They will be four months old next week.
Both girls have had lots of lung issues but are now finally after long weeks on room air. Harper has had to have surgery twice on airway to keep it from closing off on her. They also both have had troubles eating as just regular milk goes into their lungs so they have to eat thickened milk with rice. They have both overcome many hurdles to get where they are today!

To be honest, I was a bit nervous yet excited going into this Preemie shoot as I have never shot multiples.

NICU Preemie Evan

Evan and his twin brother Blake, were born on 11/29/11 at 24 weeks and 4 days gestation. Evan weighed 1 lb 7 oz when he was born. Blake weighed 1 lb 9 oz. They both had major issues with lung immaturity. Due to this, Blake developed many complications and passed away at 10 days old. Evan has now been in the NICU for 15 weeks. They have just started Evan on bottle/breast feeding.
