Good Ol' Friends (and their Sweet Baby Girl) :)

Meet the Tomlinson family. I just love these guys! Mom and Dad were good friends of mine in high school, and I haven't seen them in forever. Now, they are married with a beautiful 18-month old daughter. This was my first time meeting her, and it's amazing to see the resemblance she has to my dear friends. She's a wild little thing and didn't like to sit still for very long at all, but she's just so adorable!! I didn't mind chasing her around! :) Enjoy your preview, guys! It was so much fun to get to see you finally! We must do it again very soon!! :)

My Beautiful Daughter :)

Okay, now catch your breath!!! She's a super cutie, I know! :) She turned 11 months old yesterday. It's bittersweet because I know she is growing up way too fast right before my eyes! I'm so thankful for both my kids, and I especially think that God gave me my daughter so I will always have someone to dress up and take pictures of. Let's face it, little girls are so much easier for that than little boys!!! Not to be outdone, of course, my son is a looker, too. He just usually runs from me when he sees that I have the camera! :)

And the next thing left for my baby girl is this:

Yep. A first birthday party. *tear* I can't believe it! By the way, this adorable "1st birthday" outfit is made by the wonderful Suzanne of Paisley and Posies! Of course, she has an Etsy store!! :) Cheers!

Happy Baby Ella-Gracin.......

Okay, so maybe she wasn't happy all the time, but she certainly smiled more than any other newborn I've ever seen! She must have some killer gas! :) This sweet baby girl belongs to the cute couple that won my maternity session give-away back in March. I can't believe that she's here! It seems like just yesterday, Mom was very pregnant and we were discussing what would be cute for her newborn shots. And now she's here and she's already had her first pictures made. :) She's so precious, and even though she didn't cooperate for us and all we wanted to do with her, I think these shots say it all about her little personality already! Congrats, Mom and Dad! She's adorable, and I can't wait to see her back in a few months! :)

My Return! :)

I had such a busy month in Auburn/Opelika in April! It was pure madness, but the kind of madness that I love, so I'm okay with it. :) I will be returning this summer - YAY! My official dates are: March 28th through July 6th. However, please notice the calendar on my website, as I have several vacations and a wedding to work around. My weekends are a little limited due to all of the above, so if you want to book a session, and you are available during the week, AWESOME! Contact me and we'll get something set up!!! I still have some availability on the weekends. I adore new clients and get excited to see my repeat clients again! :)

Since I have caught up on all my editing from the past month, I decided to take some pics of the kiddos. Please note how much my daughter LOVES the camera and how difficult my son is in front of it!! :) She's just a true ham, and he is just on the go and runs from me! Oh well! These will have to do for now! Enjoy! :)

And the above picture is to celebrate spring. I swear, it comes in just as fast as it goes. The blooms only last a short time, and I'm so glad I got to capture it while it was here (and not pouring down rain!)!! :)

Meet Baby Cooper.....

Oh, I just love this cutie! We had to reschedule last weekend due to the weather, and although the weather was calling for more rain this weekend, we did it anyway. And I was so happy to finally meet him!! :) He's a chunky monkey - he weighs almost as much as my almost 3-year-old (which just means he's a healthy boy!)! And I was so excited to try out my new prop on him. He was so good; he lasted about an hour. The teacup shot was the end of the session, and that's the only time he fussed! And don't worry, Mom. I got a shot of him in the teacup NOT crying, I just couldn't resist posting the crying shot!! :) He's a sweetie, and I look forward to seeing him again in a few months when he turns 1! Enjoy the preview, Mom! I really enjoyed meeting you and Cooper. :)

Sweet Baby Avery.....

This little girl is so very special to her family!! She has been much anticipated, and her family is so thrilled that she is finally here! She is absolutely gorgeous, just look at her full head of hair! It reminds me of my sweet Aby when she was born. I just hope that Avery keeps all of her hair like Aby has (and I know her mommy will agree with me!)! And the smile that she gave me is PRICELESS!!! That's a shot that I love to capture on all newborns, it's so sweet! I had such a wonderful time meeting Avery. She has the cutest, proudest big brother! I absolutely love this family, and I look forward to photographing them as baby Avery grows up. You guys are so truly blessed! Enjoy the preview, but most importantly enjoy your new sweet baby girl!! Congratulations! :)
