Meet the worlds newest princess…Little Laila. I seriously couldn’t get enough of this sweet little face. And oh those eyes! I loved how peaceful she was when she fell asleep and the flaky newborn skin…reminds me of that short time with my own daughter. You are such a tiny princess Laila…So so thankful that I had the chance to meet you and your family.
I feel very fortunate in this job to watch my clients grow up. Not only is it amazing to have my clients grow with me as a photographer, but it makes for fun sessions and more genuine moments. This was the case for this session back at the end of November.
It had been over a year since I had seen these two and while they had grown, it was still fun to see how their personalities hadn’t changed at all. Miss Sydney with her pretty blonde hair and strikingly serious look was still the more shy of the two. Jordan, in true Jordan fashion, hammed it up for the camera. From the start, she was off running (literally) forcing me to run after her. The last image of one sister looking at another’s recently missing tooth was one of their mom’s favorites. It was by far one of my favorite moments as well and yet again reminded me how lucky I am to have a peek into my client’s lives.
No their last name isn’t Libby Lane, but if you follow my blog then you know I talk about Libby Lane quite a bit! One of my very first clients, connected me with Nicolle from Libby Lane Press. She thought my love of children’s photography and Nicolle’s love of parties and all things creative would be a perfect fit. Well she was right. Nicolle has to be one of the sweetest people I know and I am glad to call her a friend. When she asked me to do a shoot for her own two “little loves”, I was so excited. Due to nap times of a three year old and 18 month old, we had to do the shoot during mid day. We found the perfect little spot of shade at a local park and had a blast! Her daughter Sophia adores the camera and was quite the ham. Cole on the other hand, not as much of a fan, but we captured him just as Nicolle loves him, fingers, blanket and all. Thanks Nicolle for such a fun shoot and a fun year! We have so much more ahead!

Halloween has to be one of my favorite holidays. Why is it my favorite? Because along with the Fourth of July…yes there is something in common here… it has no great expectations. It is just a holiday you get to enjoy for the candy and fun. Halloween this year was especially fun. Not only did I thoroughly enjoy my daughter, but I also was able to participate in this super fun shoot with Libby Lane Press. Nicolle designed this awesome crow inspired shoot which was featured on the amazing Amy Atlas’ blog, as part of her Halloweekend Countdown. Check out the feature here!
