Babies are one of my favorite things to photograph. This are so little and squishy and the photographer always gets some baby holding time 🙂 Cademon West (love his name), was born ten days before my own son. This photo shoot was particularly special because we did the shoot at my friend Keri’s house and in the middle of the shoot was when I got my first photo of my son from a social worker from the hospital (my son is adopted). Keri shared in that first mommy moment with me and we talked about the goodness of God and how our boys would be so close in age and grow up as friends. I am so glad to have taken Cademon’s photos, so thankful for Keri as my friend, so full of joy when I remember this day and this shoot. God is good.

Kim is my neighbor. She is one of those neighbors that everybody wishes they had. The one that is the neighborhood watchdog that tells you all the goings on, that collects your all your mail and takes care of your garbage when you go on vacation, and that even comes over to hold your son so you can get a few things done around the house. Kim has two doggies that live with her, Daphne & Wookie. They are her fur babies and it was special to get a few pics of her family and her doggies personalities.

I cannot believe it has been a year since this little man was born! The next best thing to capturing your own child’s moments is to capture family, or a best friend’s moment. This boy’s mama is one of my closest friends, so Leo might as well be my nephew. He is cheerful, funny, loves to sing, and has some athletic tendencies. My guess is that he will be artistic like his mommma and daddy. Watch out Ladies!

Now here is a kid who can immediately steal your heart! This handsome man was only a few days old when we took his pictures. His parents came with great props and ideas, and as always, the photo shoot with this family went off without a hitch, minus one blowout :). There is nothing like getting to catch up with friends as you take their pics. IMG_0314

Meredith is one of my most loyal customers. A photoshoot with the Huls family is always so fun and entertaining. Meredith, you make a beautiful mama. I love photographing you in this moment of anticipation of your little man. I love capturing Brighton’s sweet spunkiness. Even Amos looks like a fierce protector in any photo that is taken. Thanks for always choosing me to be a part of your moments!JV1A2395
