This little squish!  We usually weigh him on Sunday mornings and I just had to grab a few photos of him on the scale.  He’s so sweet at this age and his little personality is really shining through!

Jude asked me if I’d take a few photos of him with Zachary.  Who was I to say no?!

A little while later Jonah received word the above photos went down.  So he marched right on up to the bed and declared he needed some too!  Zachary is seriously the most loved little boy!

And just a few of him by himself…

Backtracking a bit to May.  Life has been busy and hard and just a million different things.  But I’m hoping to catch up on blogging a bit before I explain it all.  Z was 4 months old here.  <3

So, what was supposed to be a short 2 month maternity leave for me had to turn in to a 5 month long maternity leave.  Healing and recovery has been long but I am slowly returning to work again.  This little dreamy guy – I mean really – could he be any cuter?!  The Texas heat can be brutal, even at 7 am, but he did so great!  Happy half birthday sweet baby Jay!

I’ve been incredibly blessed to get to photograph the birth of each of these beautiful children.  And while a lot of us had boy vibes at the birth, it was still such a fun surprise to see a boy enter their family!  He is quite the squish, weighing in at over 10 lbs.  I was super excited that they asked me to do their newborn session as well and oh my goodness, this chubby baby boy was so fun to photograph.  He’s absolutely adored by every single person in their family and I hope their gallery reflects just how much he’s loved.

I knew it was going to be a great session with the very first photos were smiley.  This family has the best smiles!  Big brother and sister were just the sweetest with their new baby brother.  They loved on him so much and it was so sweet to see.

Oh my, how they have grown.  These two beautiful girls had so much fun during our session.  The first time we met it was COLD and little miss wasn’t so sure about me and my camera.  This time around, they were ready to play and have a great time!  It was so fun to catch up with them!

I’m warning you now.  If you scroll down, you’ll be smacked with cuteness!  These boys are SO ADORABLE!  I can’t even handle it!  The bow ties, the smiles, I can hear the laughs through the photos.  Just….the best!!

Isn’t he just the cutest with his sweet little smile and red hair?!  As much as we photographers focus on sleepy babies, I love it when newborns are this alert….he just loved the camera so much!

Fall mini sessions are my fave.  It’s so great to catch up with a few of my favorite families that I’ve photographed for years and a few new ones!

A highlight of my year is to see this family and connect with them.  I’ve been lucky enough to photograph them for quite a few years now and I have to be ready to answer questions, lots and lots of questions!  This year Timmy had a broken leg, he fell in Hawaii, so we had to be a bit creative in moving and posing him.  He was a trooper even in the freezing cold.  These boys always steal my heart and I absolutely loved hearing their name ideas for baby Zachary (before we chose his name of course).
