Nothing screams June more than a gorgeous garden filled with roses, warm delicious sunlight, flowing dresses, bare feet covered in fresh cut grass and hair slightly damp from the heat and sprinkled with flowers.

Don’t worry, I’m not loosing it, YET! LOL This will make sense, I promise! 🙂

I had the pleasure of photographing the S family as they welcome their new sweet baby S into their gorgeous family!

Here she is 5 days young in all her gorgeous and chubby cheeked glory!

Do you get it now? Well at least one part?

No??? Come on, how about this one?

Thats right, Baby C is the cutest living cabbage patch doll! You know the quintessentially perfect baby doll from our childhood?!? How SWEET is she? Doesn’t she just make you go “Awwww”??

Well while Miss C took a snack break I hung out with Big Brother N and we played a fabulous game of Candy Land; he won of course! LOL

And then we played with a dragon/dinosaur

And Miss C continued to be a rock-star model!

And one of my favorites!

and this one……

And then big brother N and I went back outside and did a little more dragon hunting and had a BLAST!

And my FAVORITE of N! We had just found an Orange blue polka dotted dragon! I’d be pretty shocked too!

To the S. Family, thank you for letting spend time with your family during these precious  few days! I hope these images serve to remind you of how wonderful those young days were and I look forward to watching you gorgeous little family grow!


PS. To N. We will have to go dragon hunting again, It was WAY TO FUN! 🙂

It is with much happiness that I announce that I have been approved as a NILMDTS photographer. I am thrilled that I can help families in my local areas that are experiencing s0 much sorrow and hopefully capture a few precious moments for them.

From the NILMDTS website :

“Pregnancy and birth are miraculous journeys. This amazing time of life is full of mystery, anticipation, joy, hope, and wonder. Feeling the powerful energy of birth and new life, watching as a new family is born unto each other. These things humble and amaze. These are the things that we celebrate when a baby is born.

But there is another aspect of pregnancy and birth. There is an unexpected place in this journey where some families may find themselves. When a baby dies, a world is turned upside down. There is confusion, sadness, fear, and uncertainty that cannot be explained. There is sorrow where there should have been joy. During this time, it might be impossible for families to know what they might need in order to heal in the future.

This is the place where the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation gently provides a helping hand and a healing heart. For families overcome by grief and pain, the idea of photographing their baby may not immediately occur to them. Offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner is the heart of this organization. The soft, gentle heirloom photographs of these beautiful babies are an important part of the healing process. They allow families to honor and cherish their babies, and share the spirits of their lives.  The NILMDTS mission statement is to introduce remembrance photography to parents suffering the loss of a baby with the gift of professional portraiture.  We believe these images serve as an important step in the family’s healing process by honoring their child’s legacy.

The Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation (NILMDTS) administers a network of more than 7,000 volunteer photographers in the United States and 25 countries. At a family’s request, a NILMDTS Affiliated Photographer will come to your hospital or hospice location and conduct a sensitive and private portrait session. The portraits are then professionally retouched and presented to the families on an archival DVD or CD that can be used to print portraits of their cherished baby.”

I will undergo training for a few weeks/months to fully prepare and allow myself to “give back” to my local community!
