This was the funniest thing I have seen in a while. Elliot was hysterical with this cake. One second, he was curious.  The next, the cake was not allowed in a 3 foot radius of him. I think we laughed so hard that there were tears.

    Meet Aubrey

    I have a lots of blogging to catch up on from 2014, but I just couldn’t wait to post the first newborn from 2015! I had a busy Christmas season in the studio and took a few weeks for family time over Christmas break. Lots of cookies were made, (and eaten), many Legos were built. If anyone has a good system to organize Legos, let me know. I have the relegated to the playroom. There is a shelf, there are containers. Now what? LOL.

    I had the pleasure of being little Aubrey’s newborn photographer. She had so much hair and rosy, pink cheeks.  Just perfection. She was a little princess, down to her teeny toes and regal stature. I remember mom planned this one well in advance and came into the studio for a meeting before she was even showing! I love it when a mom is so excited about her baby and her session and likes to have everything planned and in order, I was the same way.

    Her mom brought a few things from her nursery. I love to coordinate wall portraits to go in the nursery! Her nursery is in pale pink and golds. Mom had a vision of a very large portrait over her bed we had in mind when planning the session. The thing I LOVED about decorating the nurseries in my home was executing that vision I had. The theme, the Pottery Barn details, creating wall art. When baby is 3-4, then they are going to start begging you to put Dora or Spongebob decals on their walls, until then it can be pretty as a picture!

    Happy New Year!  Very excited about fun things in store with the studio this year!

      A little blog post from this Blue Springs newborn photographer. Rare, I know. Sharing a newborn from December.  Meet Morgan.  He had tons of wonderful, dark hair.  I had to get a close-up of those sweet little lips.  I tend to get those at every newborn session.  They have this tiny peach fuzz on their little faces, the delicate lashes, itty-bitty toes and barely existent toenails. I am of the mind that those are things you want to remember forever. They are imprinted in your memory, how small and beautiful your child is a week after birth, but there really is nothing like an image to look back on when they are nine years old and stand almost to your shoulders.  {sniffle}
