Samantha 5 days old!

We photographed Samantha when she was in Mom's belly, well here she is! Adorable! Welcome to the world little one...

You can view more images from Samantha's session here on our website.

Samantha in Daddy's arms

Such a good baby!
and because she was only five days old we were able to get in some of those awesome "miracle shots"
I was so excited to use the column! So classic!

Wedding rings on the toes...they will look back some day and say
"Was she really THAT little?"

How adorable!
Again, because she was so young she slept most of the time, therefore we were able to mold her and get these adorable shots of her sleeping on her hands...

The newest sling. I ordered red for something different and wasn't even thinking about Christmas!
You can see her tiny little foot pressing inside the sling

The sling is really an inch from the beanbag, but we edit out the beanbag and add the height in post-processing.

This column shot is only possible with a soundly sleeping baby (and even as usual we we have spotters on both sides for safety). I love it!

Mom and baby!

Her mother brought this cute frilly dress in with her. We typically photograph newborns in the buff, but finishing up this session with this dress was just icing on the cake...

It was touching to see Dad with his new little girl, so gentle and in love with this precious little girl. And Mom was just serene, she seemed to me in awe of this little one so dependent upon them. A miracle of life!
Sometimes, said Pooh, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.

Art and Ann -- 25th Wedding Anniversary

We were very touched Tuesday to be present when Art and Ann renewed their vows for their 25th Wedding Anniversary.

My favorite image of the night is the one when Ann and Art are saying their vows -- just look at the way she is looking at him (top image of the second collage)! Everyone should be so lucky to be THAT in love -- ever, let alone after 25 years!

You can view more images from their vow renewal and anniversary party here on our website.

Thanks to Laura and Bob and Linda for setting up this group shot!

Maternity session: Baby Girl on the Way...

We photographed Marsha last week and had a wonderful session. She came dressed in a purple shirt and also brought a purple dress and both looked awesome on her! We also took some photographs of her with just scarves wrapped around her and wow! You can view more images from her session here on our website.

We had a great time photographing her and the time went by fast. We are glad that we could document this momentous time in this mom-to-be's life.

Professional pregnancy photos capture a woman's special beauty during this time. Every woman's pregnancy is unique and she can look completely different from her first pregnancy to her second one. Pregnant women have a beautiful radiance about them and that radiance will show in your treasured maternity pictures. We love to capture that glow!

We cannot wait to meet and photograph her daughter this weekend!
