Lil Cowboy

PJ is one joyous boy, at 7 months he had nothing but happiness and smiles throughout our shoot! And his little cowboy hat was just the cutest thing! Paul and Joanna are definitely blessed parents and it was a great time taking their family pictures.

Lovin those blue eyes and new little teeth:)

Month One

Sweet baby boy has been with us for one month and what a little blessing he is to our family. Ivy has given him the name "little man" but you will also hear us call him "bubbers" quit often:) This first month has been a learning experience for us as new foster parents. There are a lot of people involved in this little one's life including case workers, specialists, doctors, attorneys (just to name a few) and the past 30 days have been full of meetings and appointments in order for us to get to know these individuals and for them to get to know baby boy. Life will begin to slow down a bit now that these appointments will not be as frequent so come July I am going to start accepting a few half hour shoots here and there. If you are interested in setting up a session please e-mail me at

I wanted to add just how proud I have been of my daughter Ivy this past month. I had a feeling that bringing a baby to our home would have a positive effect on her but I didn't realize it would be this good! Not only has she been an amazing helper but her sweet little heart has just opened up to this boy! She wants to constantly be near him and snuggle up close and she has said more than once that she loves having a foster baby:) It is the most beautiful thing to witness and I am just so thankful for her loving spirit towards this child. I thought that maybe the excitement and helpful attitude would wear off after the first few weeks but she has kept it up and I am one proud momma! Here is just a glimpse of one of the many sweet moments these two have shared.

My friends Andre and Rachel recently announced that they are expecting a baby this December! I can't wait for these two to become parents and enjoy all that a new baby brings to brighten up life! I wanted to share this awesome way that Rachel will be documenting how far along she is in her pregnancy. Here she is at 12 weeks, no baby bump to detect yet but how fun it will be to mark off each week and watch the little one grow! Can't be happier for this new life and so excited to celebrate with them every step of the way!
