Doesn’t he just make you sigh! Ah, a little bundle of perfection!
So you know a boy named Jagger is destined for greatness! Seriously what a cool name! Love, love, love it! And with this boys good looks, watch out! I do have to tease his mommy a little bit for brushing his gorgeous black hair several times during his session, it totally made me smile! Anyway onto the pictures… because there is A LOT! Jagger arrived asleep and continued to sleep for the full three hours giving us tons of set ups and shots. Amazing!
“No joys on earth bring greater pleasure,
Than a little boy to love and treasure”
Seriously how cute is this adorable little man! Although I knew before he was born he would be completely adorable after his I met his gorgeous mama when she came for her maternity session! Kingston (totally LOVE his name) was also an amazing sleeper! He arrived sleeping and asleep he stayed…the entire three hours! I was so smitten with this little charmer and can’t wait to see him again in a few months!
Before you were born,
We Dreamed of you, we Imagined you, we Prayed for you.
Now that you’re here,
We Hope for you, we Love you, we Thank God for you.
Timmy Tim welcomes baby Raegan! So sweet and inquisitive about his brand new baby sister, Tim was adorable to watch interact with beautiful Raegan. Such sweet little moments and then Tim left to play with Grandma & Grandpa so we could let little Raegan fall asleep – but not before some beautiful awake pictures! Awake newborns are never as calm and still as Raegan was laying on the cozy fur. Absolutely beautiful!
“May you touch
dragonflies and stars,
dance with the fairies
and talk to the moon.
May you grow up with
love and gracious hearts
and people who care.
Welcome to the world
little one, it’s been
waiting for you!”
For those of you who keep track I know I’ve used this poem before but when Katie brought Emily for her newborn session I had just put up new vinyl in the studio and she loved this poem! So I thought I would use it again!! Emily was such a sweet little angel for me in the studio! And man is she beautiful! I can’t wait to see how her looks change over the year as she comes in for her milestone pictures! I’m pretty sure she’s gonna look just like her gorgeous mama!
“There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.”

Sweet Dominic Maiz came to visit me in the studio at just 8 days new with the most gorgeous milky newborn skin I have ever seen! It required zero retouching which is rare for newborns and during his session I truly couldn’t get over how beautiful it was! I am sharing a lot in this blog post because I simply can’t choose favorites from this session. I love them all!
“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living my baby you’ll be.”
Robert Munsch is my all time favorite children’s author. I absolutely love all his books! I grew up reading them and now enjoy reading them to my boys! Being a Canadian author his books are hard to find here in Arizona and I have found that most of my American friends have only ever heard of/read Love You Forever as quoted above. Seriously you must read his other books, they are hilarious and so much fun! Love love love!
And now let’s talk about Sweet Cora Haven! Cora came to visit me at only 5 days new! She is seriously gorgeous and was such an angel to photograph. So tiny and precious I wanted to snuggle her all day! I am seriously in love with her fuzzy hair and perfect little button nose!
There is nothing like the blessing
Of a bouncing, baby boy
He will fill your home with energy
And touch your heart with joy.
He’ll hug you and bug you
And try you within
But each precious memory
You’ll treasure again and again. ~ Linda LaTourelle
I am so excited to share with you a new member to our family, my sweet little nephew Jake! Jake was named after his parents best friend who was a pilot and died tragically in a crash a few years ago much too young. When I saw this little flight cap I had to have it for him and it was lucky Jake was a little late arriving because it came just in time! I was also honored to photograph Jake with his dad, Justin, in uniform which made us all tear up a little. I’m so excited to see little Jake grow up and get to know his unique little personality, but for now we’ll focus on the squishy deliciousness of Jake at 7 days new!
