Mr Personality… aka Gunner… came for his 2 yr session. Wow this boy is so much fun to photograph! He made me laugh the whole time! Still hard to believe that he is 2 years old already. ¬†These babies are growing so fast!

And here are a couple of favorite from his newborn session two years ago ūüôā¬†


BEAUTIFUL baby girl Kynlie came in for a quick newborn mini session! She like most babies really enjoyed being wrapped up nice and snug.  She had a super strong grip that took a little massaging to relax but other then that she did amazing! She is absolutely precious and I so love this color palette! <3

She had these GORGEOUS yellow ‘Princess Belle’ dresses and wanted to do something special with ‘Beauty and Beast’ movie in mind. ¬†Here is what we both came up with. ¬†I’m so happy with how they came out! =D

This ADORABLE ¬†lil’ red head came back to see me for her one year session! Sweet Tessly has one of the BEST personalities I have seen in a one year old. ¬†She is playful, silly and her smile will light up any room! She is absolutely precious! Happy Birthday baby girl!! =D


Here is a look back at miss Tessly’s newborn and 6 month sessions =D

Precious Rosalynn came in for her cake smash session!  She took a little to warm up but once she was relaxed and comfortable being in the studio she was a hoot! I found out her favorite songs are the theme songs to The Big Band Theory and Cops lol! EVERY time we put that on our phone her face would light up! It was amazing! She is such a cutie! I was so glad to see her again for her one year session! =D
