The finished cake smash collage.

Cute. Cute. Cute. Last week I took some 1 year pictures of little Rylee, then we tried to get her messy with a cake smash. She was a pretty dainty cake smasher, not to keen on digging in, so her mom and aunt helped her get a little messy for the pictures. You are a little doll Ms. Rylee, thanks for coming to see me!
One of my favorite parts of this job is getting to meet so many new people. It's always fun to find out that while we may have never met before, we usually know a lot of the same people. That's what happened when I met Heather, her sister and her two adorable children last week. It's a small town we live in, and I love small town living. I also love getting to watch children grow up before my eyes as they come back for sessions down the road. I hope I get to see more of this sweetheart with the big bright eyes.
This is the epitomy of cuteness.
A sweet one with big brother.
Pretty and precious.

I am so happy with how this baby session went! I love sleeping baby pictures but have struggled with getting baby's to sleep for me during sessions. I have figured out that patience is key and that I need to allow a couple hours for newborn/babies if I want those "holy grail of photography" shots. Sweet little Kendall was awake when she arrived, but did us the favor of taking a little nap and allowed me to get my first sleeping baby photos. Is she not the most precious thing? I hope I get to see more of you as you grow older Kendall.
A couple of my favorite awake shots.

A child's eyes are an amazing thing. So bright and innocent. To me, eyes are such an important part of telling a story with a photograph. This little guy's could tell a thousand stories.

This was the first of two sessions I had on Sunday and the first with my new camera! I was a little slow on adjusting my settings as the 7d is pretty much the total opposite of my former XSi. But thankfully I had a 9 and 7 year old to start with, who were less challenging (read, less wiggly lol) than the little ones I usually have. Mr. Owen had us all cracking up pretty good. Such a funny little guy! And how gorgeous are Miss Morgan's eyes? Beautiful kids!
