This precious girl. Born to my friends on a chilly day in December, after the doctors had sent her mommy home telling her to rest. Mackenzie Grace had a different idea and she wasn't really in the mood to wait around for it. So yet again, another trip to labor and delivery and this time they took her seriously. She arrived in no time to the welcoming arms of her mommy, daddy and big adoring brother. This little girl is their favorite Christmas gift ever. She is such a sweetheart.

It seems like a lot of "my" babies (as I so lovingly adore to call my tiniest clients) arrive ahead of schedule lately. Little Miss Alyse did not want to miss Thanksgiving, so she called off her daddy's big hunting plans and arrived a prompt 2 weeks early. Which I was okay with, because I was in desperate need of a baby fix. It was freezing cold outside, with snow blowing and drifting wildly, but this little doll faced angel was perfect. She did nothing more than squeak contentedly in her newborn slumbers as her sweet mama and I fussed with her. This was one of the most relaxing sessions ever. Look how darling!
My favorite thing is to have her over at my house for no reason at all but to love on her. She is such an angel! She loves to be cuddled, and she loves to play happily on the floor. She is quiet and sweet and even patient. When I take her pictures just because she is visiting me and I want to surprise her mom, she effortlessly flashes that gummy smile. Then when it's time to take her official pictures of turning one, she becomes very serious and turns into this little baby Gerber model.
Walker Alan was welcomed earth-side two weeks ahead of schedule. Early and eager to accomplish life, like eating, sleeping, becoming acquainted with his furry siblings and being adored by his sweet parents he was gracious enough to be a perfect little newborn model for my camera. His darling features actually reminded me a lot of the baby doll I was obsessed with when I was a little girl.
I'm the cutest catch.
The 48 hours immediately following birth are a complicated medley of magic and infatuation, coupled with pain and physical discomfort. There is so, so much to take in, so much to recover from, and there's this brand new little person in your family that you are head over heels for who comes with her own set of opinions, needs, and you just can't get enough of her. There's so much newness, so much to learn about each other, the very thought of missing any little detail makes your hormonal heart fall apart. That is why I love the idea of a fresh-48 session. These are the pictures that bring it all back. Your memories of those fleeting days when your child first entered your world are important to hold onto. Get pictures during those first days. You will cherish them.
This beautiful family is completely infatuated with their little surprise gift straight from heaven.
This baby; a little masterpiece that entered the world, by all standards of logic, a less than ideal time. But here he was, in all of his perfection born to his beautiful, loving, courageous mother and two of the most dedicated sisters a baby could possibly hope for. He is loved and cherished and the most beautiful gift God could ever give to his amazing little family.
In spite of her great dislike to be anything but cuddled in her sweet slumber, and the storm that rolled in robbing me of my natural light source, her perfect doll face and crazy newborn fuzz made my heart sing. I just adore how her pictures turned out.
'If I am thinking correctly,' said Pooh, 'a new baby is probably, undoubtedly the grandest gift that could ever be.'
I love babies so much. I always have. When I was a kid with a million tenderly loved baby dolls, I thought 30 would be just about the right amount to have when I grow up. Adulthood has changed my tune.
Just kidding, I still want 30 babies.
If you have ever wondered what a miracle might look like, let me show you.
Baby Wilder Joseph; his little head of soft and dark baby down, wispy eye lashes and dark fuzzy eye brows.
Dear Titus, I may be a bit late in my acknowledgements, but welcome to the world, Little Man!
