She was such a sweet little thing!  I will have more to show soon, but here is a sneak peek for mom and dad!

She was a sweetie!  And my cousin’s baby.  It was great to see family surrounding this Easter weekend.  :)

I stumbled upon this great brand of photo jewelry recently, and I am in love!  It is from Planet Jill.  I ordered a charm and engraved tablet necklace for a client, and a few for myself, and I think every mom deserves a piece of this lovely jewelry!  All of the pieces are sterling silver, and made very well.  They are dainty, and so beautiful!  If you have had a session with me in the past and want to order with any of my images, you can order directly through me.  I am offering free shipping for orders through 4/27.  Just enough time to receive the pieces before Mother’s Day.

I love pregnant mamas, and their cute families! Their little girl Jovi is due in about six weeks, and I will be doing her newborn photos as well. Their little boy was SO adorable with his huge, happy smile and to-die-for dimple.  He did a great job playing with beetles while we did some shots of just mom and dad. Cannot wait to meet your little precious bundle of joy!

It was so much fun working with this family of five (two fur-babies)! It was actually pretty much a comedy trying to get the picture of all five of them… while they were being attacked by mosquitos. We got the shots though! Their sweet little girl was so adorable, and FAST!  She made me work for the photos.  And their little furbabies were the nicest, most well behaved little dogs ever. It was great!

This session was very special for me. I photographed Hannah’s first few hours of life, almost a year ago! Her parents wanted her one year photos done for her birthday invitations… and I was so happy to see all three of them again. You can see a few photos and her slideshow from the evening that she was born, here:

Happy Birthday little Hannah!  You’re beautiful!

What a sweet couple!  I really enjoyed our session and thankfully the weather held up for us. Mama to be is glowing – and just gorgeous! I was just thinking on my way home from this session, that I am so lucky to be able to capture small snippets of some of the happiest times in peoples lives… pregnancy and new babies! I love it!

Just look at this sweet little guy!  He was 4 lbs. (can’t remember how many oz.) and born only two weeks early.  He was so itty bitty, with a full head of gorgeous red hair.  He was SO cute, and I really loved this session.  Every day, I’m just so thankful for what I do.  I love all of these sweet little babies!

We had a fabulous little getaway this past weekend.  My husband’s grandmother celebrated her 90th Birthday, and my mother-in-law put together a surprise party for her.  We flew out with the kids, as well as my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, and their kids.  The cousins had such a great time together!  I had a few opportunities to take pictures, and I have to say, even though Panhandle and Amarillo, TX, are very FLAT… there were some GREAT country textures and backdrops for photos.  We had a fun trip to the western store, where Nona and Grandpa bought each of the kids a pair of boots.  We added in belts and hats, and had such a fun time on this family shopping trip.  And here are some of the results!  Thanks Nona & Grandpa Lew for such a great trip!

And… this was the guest of honor.  Look at her beautiful face!  I just love this picture.  She’s such a neat woman, and sharp as a tack at 90 years of age.  Grandma Polly – you are an amazing woman.
