Adeline: Newborn

Meet Adeline, a little girl who has a special place in my heart. You see, her mom and I first met four and a half years ago at our first day of new teacher orientation. We spent half the day riding on a hot, sweaty school bus~the beginning of a friendship entailing lunches in the classroom, hours of conversations and venting about anything and everything, even planning our weddings for the same exact day. They now live in a different town, but I was chomping at the bit to get my hands on Adeline and was thrilled they asked me to capture their new family.

Safe in Daddy's arms...
She's so cute, and so alert for being a month old!
Thank you, Heather and Josh, for letting me into your home once again. Love you guys!

Cory + Izzy: Newborn

So back in January, I got the itch to shoot newborn twins because it had been awhile since the last set...and I set out on my search. A friend recently told me about these two beautiful baby girls, Cory and Izzy, born just a few weeks ago. I was sooo excited! Newborn sessions are fun anyway, but two of them? Could not wait. Here they are~

I got these funky headbands from the same woman who made the fringe blanket the girls are laying on in the photo above. They totally rocked them out!
Can I just say this is going in my all-time favorites folder? I mean, look at the expression on this new dad's face...pure joy as he's holding his two precious girls.
Thank you Emerick's for giving me the chance to love on little Cory and Izzy!

Toothaker: Family

Spring has finally sprung! I headed out with the Toothaker family this past weekend to help celebrate Levi turning six months and his big sis, Rileyann, turning five. It was still a bit chilly out, but NO SNOW!! And Levi was so excited, he showed us how he could sit up all by himself. What a cute little guy...
Rileyann sure knows how to turn on the charm when she's alone with the camera. She was loving it!
Love the red shoes *making mental note to find some for myself*
Daddy/son time...
I'll leave you with one last shot of the whole fam...

Reed: Newborn {Lynchburg Baby Photographer}

I met this tiny little girl yesterday, and she is an absolute beauty. She did not, however, want to miss any of the action and was wide awake for the entire session! Reed was so sweet and cuddly and we got some great shots.

Love, love, LOVE!
She liked being wrapped up but had to have those little hands free!
Reed is a peanut next to her daddy!

Ava: Two {Lynchburg Child Photographer}

I met up with Ava and her mom on a COLD morning last week, but this little girl was a trooper! A little bribery never hurts either...I loaded up her with hot chocolate and a lollipop and we were good to go.

Beautiful eyes~they are so blue...

I thought this was so funny...I've never seen a kid chug a drink like Ava did with this hot chocolate. She loved it!

Avery: Newborn {Lynchburg Baby Photographer}

I recently did a mini-session of teeny, tiny Avery, who belongs to a friend of mine. He is such a little man! Definitely a snuggly one...I had forgotten just how small new babies are. Avery was super alert, watching my every move (and those of his mommy and big sis, Lili). Take a peek~

I could not resist this one of Lili!
I'll leave you with one more...

There has been a bunch of new babies welcomed lately~check back soon!

Random: Musings

Happy 2010! Okay, so I know I'm late....really late. I don't know about you, but things have been crazy around here lately. Right now we have a Winter Portrait Special going on~half price sessions for you and a friend. What a great way to spread the love and beat the winter doldrums. Spots are limited so get yours now!

I'll leave you with a couple recent shots~

The fabulous Alban family...these kids were great sports despite the freeeezing temperatures.

And of course a shot of my own little munchkin, who is growing at warped speed. Why didn't anyone warn me it would go so quickly?!?

How about I not take so long to update you next time, okay? Promise!

Johnson: Family {Lynchburg Family Photographer}

Let me just start off by saying that I don't think there is ever a dull moment in the Johnson home! With four kids and four very different personalities, we had a very lively shoot on the family's property yesterday afternoon. Throw in beautiful backdrops and amazing light (not to mention the only non-rainy day all week!) and I think we got some great shots...

I'm seeing a pattern here...the lake. I promise I took other shots, but these were my favorites! On another note, they got in the boat! Gotta love a family who will do pretty much anything for a good photograph.
Merry Christmas, Johnsons!

MOPS: Mini-Sessions {Lynchburg Family Photographer}

Saturday I had the opportunity to spend the day shooting mini-sessions of ladies from my MOPS group and their families. It was a long day and I was exhausted at the end, but I laughed so hard at so many of the kids and truly enjoyed my time with them. We had a beautiful backdrop and an unseasonably nice day...I only hope we get that lucky for the next mini-session day in two weeks!

I picked out one of my favorites at first glance from each session, just as a surprise sneak peek for everyone.
