Sweet Surprises!

What a lovely family!  We have so many similarities and I loved getting to meet them yesterday.  Welcome to this surprise little guy!  I'm so excited to get to spend the next year documenting this journey!

She could NOT keep her lips off this cute little guy!

What better way to start the Easter weekend?

What a great way to kick off the Easter weekend!  These two kids belong to two of my favorite families!  I have so enjoyed getting to know them over the past few years... can't believe these two are ready for their First Communions!  It seems cliche' to say, but it seems like just the other day I was photographing their kindergarten graduation!  It is absolutely so sweet to see how much they love each other and love to hang out with each other!  Many blessings on this Easter weekend!

twins.... a couple of years apart!

LOVE these images -- it's that sweet expression of wonder and delight from a baby that just warms your heart --it's a little inspiring to see that in a baby's face!  This is our second go around with this really nice family that we've had the pleasure of following for the past 3 years.  So excited to meet their second little boy... who is the TWIN of their first little guy!!  UNCANNY!!  I couldn't get over it!  Congratulations, S Family -- lucky little guy to have such a great family to arrive to!!

The BIG day is here!!  At the last minute we fit in a quick maternity session -- and TODAY they are going in to have their little one!  I'm so excited to meet their little nugget (they didn't find out if it would be a boy or girl -- so the blue is no indication, just a favorite color!!).  But I'm even more excited to see how these two wonderful people are going to turn into wonderful parents -- this is one lucky baby!!  I love how we captured how much they love each other and how sweet these two are -- they both just radiate niceness!

seriously???!! four days before giving birth and this is what she looks like!!

WARNING: Giggle alert -- sure to produce giggles and the wish to get up and dance!

I'm in love with this little girl!!  She has that sweet personality that makes you want to giggle along with her -- she's just so darn cute!!  I could have spent the entire afternoon playing!  and the light was absolute MAGIC!!

we didn't plan this... the wind just came along and turned this shot into angel magic!

magic.... just magic!!  loved the light during this shoot!

beautiful family, beautiful shoot!

loved meeting this family -- they were so sweet and this could be a more beautiful place to photograph! white, white and white!!  It's a photographer's dream!  What a wonderful little guy, he did great!   -- thanks for asking me to photograph! 

seriously wonderful!!  If you only knew -- mom is a rockstar on getting this photo!!

Welcome to the World, O!

Pure sweet happiness!!  This little guy is absolutely adorable -- but no surprise as he obviously had an amazing gene pool to pull from!  This family is gorgeous, and so calm!!  You would never know they have a new baby in the house!
love this -- so in love that you can see a measure of how tiny this little guy is!!  We have a shot like this when our last little girl was born and it is one of my favorite shots ever!  I've never been able to capture it with anyone else - so thrilled we got it!!

LOVE this!! ode to Dad's country!!
