Still A Little Peanut!

When I did this little man's newborn pics, he was such a peanut...and I was so excited to see him today, and even more so when I realized he is still a little peanut (or maybe everyone just  looks little next to my big little guy!).  Mom loves hats and color, and our goal today was to bring out little mans gorgeous blue eyes--mission accomplished. Great seeing you both today!

"Hello Spring" Boutique Mini Sessions at Barefoot Baby

Well, I don't know about you, but I have had more than enough of this cold winter weather, so I'm switching gears and thinking Spring.  I'm trying something new this year, and pairing up with Barefoot Baby Boutique in Princess Anne and offering spring boutique mini sessions on April 17th from 10 am to 2pm.  What is a boutique mini session you might ask? Well, sessions will last approximately 15 minutes and will result in up to five finished images, that will be posted in a gallery on the website.  I will pick my favorite, and print up 1 8x10 and 2 5x7s that will be available for pickup at Barefoot Baby within two weeks.  Additional prints will be available at cost.  Sessions will be held inside the store, or possibly outside- weather permitting. And as an added bonus, Martha at Barefoot Baby will be throwing in a five dollar gift certificate to the shop. Plus, register for a drawing from Barefoot Baby. Now, what would such an incredible thing cost---thousands? Hundreds? Nope, all this for thirty dollars(per child- twenty dollars additional per child within one time slot, if you reserve more than one slot, a group shot can be taken as well). All monies must be paid in advance when reserving your time slot, and are non-refundable. Slots can be reserved  by calling Martha at Barefoot Baby Boutique 410-621-5398, emailing, or by swinging by in person to the store. Spaces are limited, and first come, first serve.  Can't wait! Oh, and I had to post with a picture, and this one reminds me of warm days, so I thought it would be perfect!

Amazed...times Two!

I have had a lot of experience with newborns, but newborn twin are a challenge that I have only done once, and that was a long time ago, so when I found out J was having double the fun I pretty much begged her to let me practice on her boys, and she was kind enough to oblige!  I was super nervous, becasue one little one can be a challenge sometimes, but these little guys were so sweet, and just loved to cuddle up with each other---I am so in love...every time I would hold one, my heart just melted.  These two were only 8 days old today, and super tiny, weighing only about 6, and about 4 pounds...but what they lacked in size, they surely made up for in sweetness.  You'll see more of these guys in the next few days- there were a few shots we didn't get to do, and didn't want to push our luck, so stay tuned...

And Little One Makes Five...

Walking into B home, I knew it was going to be a good shoot...the little one on the way has two of the sweetest older brothers, one of whom is a touch shy, the other of whom was my assistent for the day. He may have though Mom's belly was "gross" and that it would be "weird" to touch it, but he was loads of fun.  I'm not going to lie, but the stairstep picture was his idea, and I think it turned out adorable!  And doesn't mom look great- you would never know that she is nearing her due date, or that this is her third pregnancy---wow!  Thanks for having me out to your home, can't wait to capture pics of your little one in a few weeks!

Baby B- Cutest Boy in Baltimore!

Seriously, this little guy, was the cutest little peanut today!  I kinda just wanted to cuddle him and put my camera away---he was just that adorable.  But, being such that it had been a bit of a drive, I figured I should probably shoot a few. However, little man wasn't feeling it for a while...even with mom and I working our magic. But, after a little bit Baby B drifted off into dreamland and let mom and I tear into the hat collection and have some fun.   T- it was so nice meeting you, even though I feel we had already met after all our emails!  Remember, 20 comments to the blog earns this family an 8x10 from their session...

Congratulations Megan and Dustin

You may recognize these two from their engagement pics, and it's official- the knot as been tied.  They had wanted a winter wedding, and trust me, they had one. Amidst snow piles at the New Life the Apostolic Church they said their vows, and then partied it up at the Wicomico Youth and Civic Center. A wonderful time was had by all, and the bride and groom could not have been any happier...except maybe when they landed in Jamaica, leaving us all here to deal with the rest of the snow.  Congratulations again you two!

Six Months of Sweetness!

I love watching families grow, and when Mom called me to do this sweet munchkins six month pics, it was bittersweet.  She was born within a few days of my little man, and six months makes it soooo official that they aren't little snuggly newborns anymore.  But, little K just gets cuter and cuter every time I see her, and was such a little darling for the camera today!  It was wonderful seeing you both, and remember 20 blog comments earns this family an 8x10 from their session!

Little J Is One!

When Mom called me to do her little man's one year pics, I couldn't believe how fast time had flown. I met this amazing family when she was seven months pregnant, and then had the honor of taking J's baby pics.  And to see him now is just unbelievable- still has the most amazing blue eyes, but now has the cutest little teeth and grin----love him! Thanks so much for sharing such special memories with me H family- I really look forward to watching your family grow!
