Andrea and Joel made no bones about the fact that they were going to start having kids right away after their wedding, and when Miss Zoey finally arrived, they fell right into parenthood as if they were old pros. Miss Zoey is a happy, smiley, cuddly sweet girl who sleeps like a champ and is happy pretty much all the time. I’m so honored to have had the chance to meet her and make her newborn portraits. Congratulations, Andrea and Joel on your perfect little girl!
These two super-cute, super-sweet friends of mine are expecting a sweet baby girl next month! I’m so excited to meet Baby Girl and watch them become amazing parents. There’s no doubt in my mind that they’ll fall right into parenthood with ease and grace (as much ease and grace as one can have with newborn poo and spit-up stains on your clothes), and they’ll continue to out-do everyone with amazing Pinterest-inspired bedrooms and furniture. Congratulations, Andrea & Joel!
Mister Sam is so super cute, and already six months old! He loves his older brother (check him out at six months here), his puppy, and his momma and daddy. And drooling. Oh, does Sam love to drool. He also loves to smile and giggle, so we’re cool with the drooling. His bow tie tee shirt and cardigan made him look especially dapper for his photo shoot, and I had a great time with him!
The Grand Opening Celebration was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who was able to make it and to those who could not but sent well-wishes. We had a great time playing, dancing, and taking photos at the celebration. I can not express how grateful I am for all the support I receive from all of you, and look forward to making and capturing many more memories with you all!
The Express Sessions were a blast. The kids were having so much fun, and we got some really great portraits in the short amount of time we had with everyone. Here’s a sneak peak of each kid. You can view all of the Express Sessions photos on my Facebook page, www.fb.com/firelilyphotography.
Thank you to Justyna, of Funky Monkey Photography for providing great images of the ribbon cutting and David Landau’s performance!
kids young adults (that makes me sound OLD) are just so awesome to work with. It’s not every day that you meet a respectful, funny, self-assured young man in his Senior year of high school. But Kadarian is just that. I had a great time during his session and wish him well for the rest of his senior year and his plans for the future!
Mr. Miles is One! Today! What better way to wish him a happy birthday than to share some of his adorableness with the world. He’s such a happy, smart, and sweet boy and I love spending time with him and his family. His cake was so super cute, and absolutely delicious (yes, I tasted some frosting). Enjoy your dose of cute for the week!
This sweet family has so much joy and energy. Miss AJ certainly keeps you on your toes! Her sweet smile and personality make you forget how tired you get chasing this little one around!
I had such a great time with all the littles at this year’s Fall Mini Sessions! It was a tad chilly, but they all handled it quite well, and we got great images of these happy young families.
We had such a great time at the Halloween Play Date on Friday! Incredibly, all the little kiddos were dressed as animals this Halloween. (And one big kiddo in a gorgeous gown.) They’re all so stinkin’ cute! Thank you to everyone who made it out. It was such a great time, we’re making it an annual event!
I got to spend quite a bit of time cuddling this handsome man during his session. It’s the biggest perk of being a newborn photographer! It is obvious that he is well-loved, and his mom and dad have eased into parenthood quite gracefully. It was a joy to spend time with the three of them.
