Michelle: Waiting for Baby Vivian

My first belly! Well, not my first, since I'm working on number two (!) , but I got to shoot a belly at my first maternity session. We had a great time with different outfits and super cool cowboy boots! It was fun trying to make her belly stand out since it is so little! I'm so excited for her and her husband to embark on the journey of parenthood. They are going to have so much fun with their baby girl, who I can't wait to meet!

Five Generations

How many people have a great GREAT grandma living? Little Lucas does making FIVE generations of people I got to spend some time with. I absolutely fell in love with this family especially great great grandma. In my family, we call my sons's great grandmother, super grammy so I secretly renamed her to ultimate grammy.

We only had a few days to schedule since great grandma and ultimate grandma were here on vacation from much colder states. The time I got to spend with them was incredible! Even though I have to admit that taking pictures of someone (I will not mention names) who loathes getting her picture taken was a little challenging especially when she would just randomly walk out of the shot, it was so worth every shot I did get of these five generations together! 

Thank you thank you thank you for your patience and letting me capture five generations of LOVE!

Baby Lucas

I had the opportunity to meet baby Lucas last weekend! I was so excited to pull out my new backdrops and baskets for him. As unpredictable as newborns are, we weren't able to get him to sleep (even with a bottle, heater, sound machine, cuddling, and two hours), but was still able to capture him at such a precious delicate age!

I even went back for a visit a week later after he'd been awake all day, and he still wasn't wanting to sleep. I will be praying for his parents as he isn't sleeping much even at night. Hopefully soon, they'll be able to look back and remember his "wide awake" days!

The L Family

I had the opportunity to spend time with this family of four in addition to their mims! 

We got to celebrate two milestones! Ainsley is now one and Evan will soon to be three! They were just a joy to spend time with especially because of the fun sound effects and super awesome songs Evan sang to us. I learned that the phrase, "Ka-Chow", from Cars works really well to make kids smile. Thanks, Evan!

It's a girl!

We have friend due in June with a baby girl! To announce the gender, we did some fun shoe shots.  I love the contrast of the pink with the red white and blue Converses. So exciting!

Fun in the Snow

My family and I went up north to Pinetop where we got to play in the snow but enjoy the warm 60 degree weather. Here are some pictures of Vaughn and his sweet cousin, Molly, and of Vaughn's New Year's Pictures. All I had to do was give Vaughn a lens cap to throw at me, and I was able to get some super fun shots. Here's to 2012!
