Wyatt and Harlee's Mom came prepared for photos with several outfits, sunglasses, and even a very cool cowboy hat! Wyatt and Harlee had a different plan though. Harlee started the session very happy and full of smiles. We were able to get in some great pictures of her in the first 10 minutes. Wyatt was very shy and took lots of warming up, and had to be tricked into taking pictures. We finally got him telling stories, and drawing on the chalkboard and got him to flash us some beautiful smiles. By the time Wyatt was warmed up and ready Harlee was hungry, tired, and ready to call it quits.

An engagement session.. a whole session dedicated to 2 people, and love! This has a whole new feel from my usual little people sessions! Grown people who can smile, and pose as asked! Our original plan was to walk the grounds of the Dew Drop Inn, however no one could be reached and there is an ominous barb-wire fence all along the inside of their rock walls, so we detoured to Snow Falls. There had been rain off and on all day, so we weren't sure we were going to be able to get our session in, however the rain held off until the very end of our session. Amy had some wonderful ideas of her own. Paired with mine, we got some great shots. Amy and Jose will wed August 11th of this year, and have asked me to photograph that event as well :)

Harmony was brought to me by her Mom and Dad for her 9 month photos. She was quite shy at first and even shed a couple tears, but was quick to warm up to the camera. Fortunately Harmony is not walking yet and was happy to just sit and smile for the camera. Mom and Dad will be getting married in the fall, and we were able to squeeze in a few pictures of the two of them as well!

Sweet Sophijah is 9 months old and already walking!! She wanted no part of having her picture taken. Mom and I tried everything from maracas, to singing, to peek-a-boo, to filling her belly, to finally bringing in her Auntie to work her magic to get Sophijah to smile! We were able to get lots of great serious pictures of this sweet little face!

How excited was I that less than one week after my first newborn session, I got contacted to do another?! I purchased the angel wings in prep for this one, and they made for the sweetest newborn girl pictures! Abigail was 10 days old, and a little more awake than a brand new newborn, so I was able to get some shots with her eyes open.. After Mom filled her belly up though, it was back off to dreamland, and she was ours to pose!

Wyatt's Dad is a long time friend of the family. His mom contacted me to do some 9 month pictures, and how could I say no to a boy to photograph amongst all the 9 month girl requests I've been getting?! Wyatt is a quiet, but happy little guy. I was able to capture a couple little grins, and some other really great expressions from him :) I have just scheduled a 1 year cake smash session with him, and couldn't be more excited!
Bradley's Mom is an old friend of mine. I had the opportunity to take pictures of her almost 2 year old little girl as a baby on numerous occasions. Bradley was just 1 week old at the time of these pictures, and my first newborn session, outside of my own kids. I was so excited for this session! We cranked the heat in the room and he slept through nearly the whole thing; the repositioning, the picture taking, and more repositioning! What a great first newborn experience this was!

Vayda's Mom contacted me after seeing Summer's photos. Vayda's Dad and Summer's Mom are cousins. Again, I was more than happy to take pictures of another little girl! Vayda is just learning to stand, and did well holding on to a chair, a windowsill, and even her Mom's hands. She was full of fun and smiles, and has amazing blue eyes (I am a sucker for big blue eyes)! We were even able to get in a couple with Mom :)
