“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!”

Came across the poem on Pinterest today and thought it was just perfect for sweet little Sofia! A little older than most for her newborn session Sofia came to visit me at three weeks but she did fabulous! Her family is just smitten with her and it was a joy to capture!

This was/is such a bittersweet session for me. I adore these kids with all my heart. My dear friend Chantae is mom to these gorgeous kiddos and to my sadness they moved away this month. This was a last minute shoot before they left and as fun as it was it was sad, as they will be so deeply missed.

Charlotte & Ezra are growing up so fast it’s incredible. Charlotte is stunningly beautiful and such a sweetheart. But believe me we had to pull out full theatrics to get real smiles out of this girl! And as you can tell in the pictures she is all about accessories right now! Ezra is such a little stud… and I think he knows it! He gave me the cutest little grins and smirks I just loved it! This whole session was fabulous, I could honestly post every picture on here…but I’ll try to contain myself!

“A child is a curly, dimpled lunatic.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Well my Griffin may not be curly but he sure is a lunatic! At six months old he has already been sitting for weeks, crawling for weeks and has now learned to pull himself to standing on just about anything! We are in trouble with this one for sure! He is so desperate to keep up with his brother he has goose eggs on top of goose eggs from his recklessness! I am actually considering taking bets on when he’ll walk; my guess is by 8 months! Seriously though this little charmer is the light of our family, he is so happy all the time you can’t help but smile when you’re around him and we love him to bits!

  • crystal voss - I absolutely love these pictures of Griffen you can sure see the excitement in his eyes. Does Jacquie have some cute pictures of Asher on this website too….?ReplyCancel

Three month old Quinn was a little tired, and a little less enthusiastic about having her pictures taken than her parents had hoped! So what do you do when that happens? Let them take a little nap of course! A little nap in a darling petti skirt that is!

I usually never get sleeping pictures of babies older than newborn and I just love how these turned out! So angelic and peaceful – love love love! And lucky for us Quinn woke up so happy and smiley it was adorable! She is such a little sweetheart I can’t wait to see her again at 6 months! And those green/hazel eyes and long lashes…my goodness!

  • Elle @ Liberty Elle - Love those sweet rosy cheeks and to-die-for lashes!ReplyCancel

  • Matthew - The photos that we purchased through you came exceptionally packaged with ample wrapping and protection. The photos themselves are of stunning quality. Worth every penny. Well done! I hope your professional work has been fully appreciated by everyone you photograph. Keep up the great shots and we’ll see you in 2 more months! ๐Ÿ™‚ReplyCancel

Can you say gorgeous! Seriously! GORGEOUS! With such a handsome big brother it was to be expected but seriously! Start building a tower Dad! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sweet little Colette was so precious and tiny I couldn’t get enough! And those lips! My goodness I was in heaven!
