I can’t wait to get the full post of handsome little Elijah up for you, but I thought I’d better give you a preview.  This afternoon was a fun day full of newborns photos and big sisters photos.  I only got peed on once (thank you to every newborn client I’ve had to prepare me for motherhood!) and got to dance with a two year old.  It doesn’t get better than this.  Check in soon for more of Eli and his big sis Grace.

It doesn’t matter the year.  It doesn’t matter the child.  In every nursery you hear the hush of a whisper “what a little miracle”.  And that whisper is right.

In Breanna’s case, the whisper is not only right, it’s the only way to describe her.  33 weeks into her mommy’s pregnancy, there were complications.  My cousin, Julie, had HELLP syndrome and the situation was life threatening.  Breanna needed to come early, but there was concern at how young she was.  In God’s good grace, Breanna was born perfectly healthy, never needing oxygen or spending the beginning of her life in an incubator.  After three weeks of scary ups and downs for her mommy, both a healthy daughter and mother were able to come home.  Many thanks to all of our friends and family who have relentlessly prayed for both girls.  We have a good God, and he has miraculously brought Breanna safely into this world.

Welcome Baby Anna!

Her older sister looked at me with excited eyes and exclaimed “Amba!  Baby Iza-bella inside!”.  We had just finished getting a few absolutely adorable pictures of Abigail when she heard her sister had woken up.  We quickly ascended the stairs to where Abigail’s 7 day old sister awaited her first photography shoot.   There is nothing more endearing (and terrifying!) as a new big sister.  They are full of love and curiosity as they cuddle their infant sibling.  It’s beautiful, until they go for the eyes.  They always go for the eyes.  But as far as big sisters go, Abigail is going to be a great one.  And as far as little sisters go, Isabella is beautifully serene. 

Isabella was a wonderful model!

This is one of my favorites!

I LOVE how Abigail is looking at Isabella’s hand

The big sister

The weather was warm and the sun bright.  Pink frills and decorations surrounded the yard, all exclaiming a first birthday was about to be celebrated.  A beautiful cake and appetizers lined the kitchen counter, waiting for the guests to arrive.  The birthday girl was unsure of what was about to transpire – although being one was sure it was all about her anyway.  Her white dress with perfectly pink accents distinguished her as the champion of the party.  A wonderful way to celebrate Kennedi turning one.

After having the privilege to photograph Kennedi’s first year, her parents invited me to capture her very first birthday with a few pictures before the party, and a few during.    It was a ton of fun to be able to watch this little beauty transform over the last year.  I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.  Happy Birthday Kennedi!!

Oh, and I had to show you this cake!  Isn’t it absolutely adorable?

Carrie, Hannah’s mom, and I were chatting about names after she saw my last post about Calvin.  She was glowing with love as she looked at Hannah, telling me about her name.  “It was right after I became a Christian when I was 17” she said, the sound of the movie “Annie” quietly playing in the background as the older two girls rested after a long day.  “I read the story of Hannah and knew I wanted to name my daughter that someday”.  And so this little bundle of joy bears the name Hannah Hope, after a woman who put her entire hope in God.    A beautiful name for a beautiful girl.

Mother and daughter

This is by far one of my most favorite pictures!


And the Buddha Belly…

Cheethams, thank you so much for this opportunity to work with your little one!  We guys are wonderful!!

Purpose behind names is so important to me.  Ask Mike.  We’ll be sitting watching TV and I’ll hear a new name, and I have to look up the meaning.     And it’s not necessarily the meaning, it can be why you were named something.  Like Mike and I’s middle names are both family names, and I love that!  So when I learned that the 4 day old I was photographing was named Calvin, and I saw on his bookshelf a work by John Calvin next to “Good Night Moon” I realized he was destined for great things.

And can I tell you I also love taking pictures of newborns when they’re so new! I mean, four days old is right out of the oven!  And what a handsome baby at that.

I LOVE his smile!

Another smiley one…

I got to admit, this is one of my favorites

To counteract the smiles, I had to show you he was a real baby…

Siegmunds, your son is handsome.  And your love for him fills your home.  I’m so excited for you and your new family!
