When I arrived at little Jasper's house he was sleeping peacefully. However, that was all a trick. As I finished setting up he decided he needed to eat, pee, and poop twice. In all seriousness, once he was done with all the pooping he was a little angel. He slept peacefully for me even when the dog licked his face, which you can see below. He is such a sweet baby who in some ways reminds me of when my own sweet boy was little. I'm so glad I got to meet this family and document Jasper when he was just a little thing. Before they know it he'll be big.
These little girls gave me a run for my money but don't twins always do that. Those of you who knew me when my twins were little probably remember me going around like a half asleep zombie. However, it does eventually get better and easier and that was definitely my experience photographing little Alice and Rose. At first Alice was sleeping like a dream but Rose was very angry with the whole idea. Then they switched. But eventually everything fell into place and these little girls finally decided to show me how cute their little faces look when they're not pouting. Every time I shoot twins it brings me back to when mine were little, there's nothing like two little babies snuggled up together.
I met this little cutie this past weekend along with her mommy, daddy, and grandma and I haven't stopped looking at her photos since. Isn't she just adorable. Even though Everly did not much enjoy getting her photo taken you can't really tell. For most of the shoot Everly looked at me and at her mom but refused to go to sleep. Since she was pretty happy, I was happy to keep shooting. Then she fell asleep for a short while (during which I took many adorable photos). Then, She woke up MAD! After that she was really only happy if mom or dad was holding her which was great because it was time to take family photos anyway. Of course, as I walked out the door she was dozing again, isn't that just how babies are. Anyway, this little girl is super cute so enjoy a sneak peek of little Everly,

Happy Birthday Declan! I can't believe this guy is already turning one! And what a sweet boy he's turning out to be. He's all smiles until you put a camera in front of your face. All he wanted to do during his shoot is show off his skills pulling up to stand and crawling all over the place. I think he'll be walking soon and I can't wait to see him toddling around on those chunky legs of his.
Sweet little Brenna is here and her big sister couldn't be happier. I photographed the two of them in their home in Tampa, FL and they were so sweet. Brenna was feeling a little nervous about all this weird stuff going on around her so she decided to stay awake and keep an eye on things. Unfortunately, that meant that by the time I left she was pretty exhausted. When it was big sister Isla's turn to join her sister she was such a big girl. She did her best to follow all of my directions and give her best smile. I think Brenna is a lucky girl to have a big sister like Isla to look out for her.
My babies are getting so big! Myla is 18 months old now and Jameson and Hadley are five. It's so hard to believe. I've been wanting to try shooting some glitter portraits and decided that Myla's 18 month shoot was the perfect time for it since I love experimenting on my kids. Of course, once Jameson and Hadley found out what I was planning they decided they had to join in. This was such a fun shoot and all three kids really loved it. The only thing I didn't love was the clean up but for photos like these, I think it was worth it. The baby days go by so fast, and before I know it, Myla won't be a baby any more (cue the tears). But, at least I'll have plenty of photos of her little chubby cheeks.
Baby Jack is here. What an adorable, expressive little boy! When I first started photographing him he was wide awake, looking around at all this weird equipment I brought into his home and this machine that kept clicking in his face. He wasn't mad, just interested and giving me all kinds of cute and funny faces. But, he is brand new and after awhile he couldn't help but fall asleep. Even with only being there for a little while I can tell that little Jack brings a lot of joy into his home and I know he'll only continue to do so as he grows.
Happy first birthday Francesco! This little guy was such a sweetie and so are his parents and big brother. Francesco was feeling a little bit shy but he warmed up after awhile. He is much younger than his older brother and came along just when his parent's were sure their baby days were over. He has brought so much joy to their family, you can really see it in their eyes. In order to celebrate, his parents decided to recreate some photos that his brother Giovanni took when he was one. Francesco had other ideas in mind but we managed to capture a few. Including a few shots containing the same hat Giovanni wore in his photos, unfortunately Francesco's head is a little bigger than his brother's so we sat it next to him.
I can't believe this boy is not a baby anymore! I've been photographing Bubba since he was a newborn and since the last time I saw him he has definitely made the transition from baby to toddler. Since little man is at that age where he is always on the go we decided to photograph him doing what he does best, playing. As soon as I walked in to his backyard he started running around showing me all his toys and his favorite things to do. At the same time he was being such a little ham smiling for the camera. Not only was it great to celebrate another year in Bubba's life, but this family also had another big deal to celebrate. Mary, bubba's grandmother beat breast cancer this year!
My own littlest baby is one year old! I just can't believe how fast the last year has flown by. I'm amazed every day by this spunky little girl. She's absolutely fearless and loves everyone she meets. She brings joy to all of us around her, especially her big brother and sister who absolutely adore her. Watching their little faces light up when she smiles at them or laughs when they're silly makes my day every time. I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for my little baby, I just wish she would stay a baby just a little bit longer.
