I couldn’t just pick out a couple of favorites.  This little boy and his mama and daddy have got me way wrapped around their fingers.  I had to put up a bunch of photos of this amazing work of God and yet I still did not put up all of my favorites because there really were too many.  When I saw his first hospital pic on Facebook, I couldn’t wait to hold him.  Later that day as I held him in my arms at the hospital, I couldn’t believe just how precious he was and how long I had waited for that moment (9 months is a long time to wait for one of your closest friend’s baby to actually make an appearance).  I was so happy to snap some pics of that studly boy just over a week later.  So here he is, Leo Emerson Ortiz!

On Saturday I had the pleasure of taking photos of the wonderful Grooms family.  Despite the fact that I made them traipse all over creation, slide down a  dirt hill on their butts, climb small hills in sandals, walk through long uncomfortable grass, and just about every other terrible thing a photographer can do to her clients, they kept great attitudes and smiled through it all.  They were so accommodating and joyful. It made them easy to photograph.  They are all naturally photogenic, especially McKenna.  That girl could flash a perfect smile at any given moment, even in the throes of being silly with her brothers 🙂
