THE Baby Wilo......Finally! :)

Meet Baby Wilo. Okay, so we finally found out that Baby Wilo is a HE, so meet sweet James Phillip. He may possibly be the most anticipated baby of 2010. James was 11 DAYS PAST HIS DUE DATE!!!! Apparently, Mommy provides a great little habitat, and he didn't want to come out just yet to meet his admirers. But, he finally made his appearance, and I was so excited that I got to photograph this cute munchkin at just *almost* 4 days old!!!! He is absolutely gorgeous! He was so good for me, too. He slept for a good bit of the session, and if he woke up, he was either content or easily satisfied. I am so glad that he is finally here! And I'm even happier that I get to photograph his first year (and then some) of life! :) Congratulations, Mommy and Daddy! He's truly precious and I can't wait to see him and cuddle him some more!

9 Month Milestones

Sweet Avery is 9 months already!!! When I first met baby Avery, she was only 7 days old. Now she's 9 months and has such a little personality! :) She has been so on top of all of her milestones for each of her sessions every 3 months, and we have been able to capture all of them so far. But she DID NOT want us to get her standing up this time!!! She was so mad at us for making her stand, but we weren't giving up......because she can totally do it, no problems! She just didn't want to show me that she could. :) I love her anyway, and I must say AGAIN how much she resembles my little girl. Avery is so incredibly adorable, and I'm so glad that I get the privilege of seeing her so often. I can't wait until her 1st birthday pictures! Enjoy the preview, Mom and Dad! :) All of our "patience" and hard work paid off I think!!

Kaliann is 9 Months!! :)

I'm in love with this sweet little baby! She has been my precious client since she was 3 months old, and I just love seeing her every 3 months. This was our first indoor session because it's waaaaaay too cold outside to take any babies out for good pictures, and she did so good! She didn't fuss at all, and she was cooperative for everything we wanted her to do. I love it! Enjoy the preview, Becci! I cannot wait to see her in a couple months for some fun 1st birthday shots! :)

Meet my adorable sister-in-law and crazy brother-in-law. They are the sweetest, and they are expecting their first baby the beginning of March. My sis-in-law is ALL BABY - she has the cutest little belly! We had such a great time in Shreveport over the weekend visiting and of course, taking some pictures. :) They were giggling the entire time - sooooo cute! I cannot wait to meet my sweet baby neice and take her picture. She is going to be spoiled and loved more than she will ever know. I'm so happy for you guys. Thank you for trusting me to capture this special time for you. I hope you like them - I have plenty more for you!!! :)
