I had an awesome birthday, thank you for all the well wishes.  First, my wonderful little dude gave me the best birthday gift ever, he slept through the night for the first time!  From 8:30 pm until 5:45 am…..way to go buddy!!  Then I had several mini-sessions and a big family birthday party after that.  My husband even took over camera duty for awhile at the party, how cool is that….I love finding photos on my camera.  A great day!

I promised sneak peeks before I head to the beach for a few days of relaxation.  The Slidell mini-sessions were a huge success, we managed to dodge the rain and it was fun to hang out with some old friends….thank you to everyone who booked one!

First up, little Bradley.  Remember him at 3 months (and here)?  And 6 months (and here)?  I can’t believe how much he’s grown…could he be any cuter?!?




Next up, the tripletsThe last time I saw them, they were itty bitty little peanuts.  I can’t believe they’re a year old already!  I got a bunch of shots of them, but I have to share this one, it cracks me up!  Their mom is brave and decided to let them dive into cupcakes at the end of the session.  They loved em!


and big sister Hannah with MacKenzie


Next up, Fletcher.  He’s the adorable little boy of Mary with Paper & Ink Studio.  I was so psyched when Mary booked one of the mini-sessions, I finally got to meet her.  I hired her to do some custom work for me awhile back and I’m consistently amazed with her talent.  Is Fletcher seriously cute or what?!


His parents are pretty cute too!


last but not least, my little buddy Aiden (click here and here).  I’ve been photographing him since he was just a tiny little thing too, it was fun to see how much he’s grown since we moved and catch up with his parents…


love the lashes


Many more of everyone to come…but now I’m off to the beach!!!!
