Double the Sweetness :)

I have had the honor of photographing this BEAUTIFUL family since Miss "L" was 3 months old. Wow, I can't believe she's now turning 3! What a joy it's been for me to watch her grow & change through the years. And with each passing year, she just grows sweeter by the minute! Miss "L" is also VERY proud of her 8 day old baby sister and could not have been a bigger help to her parents and to me. Baby "A" was an absolute DREAM come true. She was a little hesitant of her "portrait debut" at first, but as you can see by her beautiful portraits, once she fell into that deep sleep, she was well worth the wait. :) Mr. & Mrs. "M", it has been a true honor to watch your family grow and change through the years and I could not have felt more blessed by being a part of this very special and exciting time in your lives. You are definitely doubly blessed with "sweetness" with those beautiful baby girls of yours :) Enjoy your sneak.

Of course, I could NOT resist this shot of Dad kicked back in the chair while we were busy photographing his precious baby girl. You deserve it Daddy, she's beautiful :)

Be still my Heart :)

I could not have dreamed of a more perfect, peaceful, nor Beautiful newborn session if I tried. Not only did this lil' tyke not make a peep the ENTIRE session, he let me do whatever I wanted & even while unclothed, he didn't even make a mess :) WOW!!! He was definitely a DREAM baby through & through, but his big sister (who's not even 2 yet) amazed me even more with her sweetness, willingness to cooperate AND she was absolutely adorable as well! If I didn't know any better, I would have thought I was in Heaven with these 2 precious Angels :) Congratulations on your beautiful blessings, Mr. & Mrs. "S". Many more portraits to follow very soon :)

Happy 1st Mother's Day in Heaven, Mom/Mimi

Dear Mom/Mimi,
We love you bunches & miss you more than words can say! Your love & beauty shines through each & every one of us & we are all proud to say that we are better people because of YOU!!!
"Sweet Dreams, Honey" :)


For those lucky to still be blessed with your Mom,
this is beautiful. For those of us who aren't, this is
even more beautiful. For those who are moms, you'll love this.

The young mother set her foot on the path of life.
"Is this the long way?" she asked. And the guide said: "Yes, and the way is hard.
And you will be old before you reach the end of it.. But
The end will be better than the beginning."

But the young mother was happy, and she would not
believe that anything could be better than these years. So she
played with her children, and gathered flowers for
them along the way, and bathed them in the clear streams; and
the sun shone on them, and the young Mother cried,
"Nothing will ever be lovelier than this.."

Then the night came, and the storm, and the path was
dark, and the children shook with fear and cold, and the mother
drew them close and covered them with her mantle, and the children said,
"Mother, we are not afraid, for you are near, and no harm can come."

And the morning came, and there was a hill ahead, and
the children climbed and grew weary, and the mother was weary.
But at all times she said to the children, "a little patience and we are there."
So the children climbed, and when they reached the top they said, "Mother, we would not have done it without you."

And the mother, when she lay down at night looked up
At the stars and said, "This is a better day than the last, for my
children have learned fortitude in the face of hardness. Yesterday I gave them courage. Today, I've given them strength."

And the next day came strange clouds which darkened
the earth, clouds of war and hate and evil, and the children groped
and stumbled, and the mother said: "Look up. Lift your eyes to the light."
And the children looked and saw above the clouds an everlasting glory, and it guided them beyond the darkness. And that night the Mother said, "This is the best day of all, for I have shown my children God."

And the days went on, and the weeks and the months and the years, and the mother grew old and she was little and bent. But her children were tall and strong, and walked with courage. And when the way was rough, they lifted her, for she was as light as a feather; and at last they came to a hill, and beyond they could see a shining road and golden gates flung wide. And Mother said, "I have reached the end of my journey. And now I know the end Is better than the beginning, for my children can walk alone, and their children after them."

And the children said, "You will always walk with us,Mother, even when you have gone through the gates." And they stood and watched her as she went on alone, and the gates closed after her. And they said: "We cannot see her, but she is with us still.. A Mother like ours is more than a memory. She is a living presence..."

Your Mother is always with you... She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street; she's the smell of bleach in your freshly laundered socks; she's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well. Your Mother lives inside your laughter. And she's crystallized in every tear drop. She's the place you came from, your first home; and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love and your first heartbreak, and nothing on earth can separate you.

Not time, not space... Not even death!


And may you enjoy this first Mother's Day in Heaven with your own beautiful Mother! We know how much you've missed her through the years!

WOW, our little "cover-girl" star turns One!!! What an honor & blessing it has been for me to watch Lil' Miss "E" grow & change over the past one year. Not only has she grown more beautiful with each passing month, she's also managed to wrap me a little tighter around her precious little finger once again. Mr. & Mrs. "G", thank you for bringing this joyful little Angel not only into my studio, but also into my heart & blessing me with her beautiful presence. Enjoy your sneak peek. Hope "E's" party was a huge success. :)
