It really didn't hit me how quickly the days turn into years until my third son came along. I loved all the stages of my first two sons, but I was always anxious for the next stage to come. I find myself holding onto every single moment with Adrik. I am totally good with him not being potty trained....ever. Okay, maybe not ever, but i can't imagine not having a baby in diapers. I know, it's ridiculous.

I would give anything to have images like this of my boys, of me, and of my husband all together doing our everyday thing. I have only one image that I took with my tripod of me nursing Adrik, I cherish it. I just didn't think of it at the time.

Linsey and Dustin have two beautiful babies, Mason and now Makenzie. Mason wasn't feeling well at all and the poor guy just wanted his mama, and Mickey. But he still did so well for the camera.

These hazy days with a newborn are so fleeting and to be able to give this gift is unmeasurable.
I love storytelling so much and this is why....

First of all, I have to say that I just adore this little lady's name, Adler. I find it sweet and strong, just like her.  Adler is my good friend and fellow art teacher's daughter, Bonnie. Bonnie and Joel have Noah who is 4 and now little Adler.  They tried long and hard for this ball of beautifulness.  I couldn't be more happy for them and it was a total honor to get to experience this relaxed bundle of sweetness.

meet Adler and Noah

I wonder if there will ever come a time when I am not nervous for a session? I am a nervous wreck walking up to the front door of a complete strangers home. Then the door opens and all of my anxiety is quickly wiped away as they welcome me with warm vibes. 

This session was extra nerve wracking for me. Dwight is the principal at the high school in the school district where I teach. I have only been in the same room with him once and his sweet and calm demeanor was intriguing. He is well respected in our community and being a little peon of an art teacher, I felt a little intimidated. All of my fears were completely laid to rest when I stepped into their living room.  Samantha is Dwight's wife and she is as sweet as she is absolutely stunningly gorgeous. You get to know your clients skin very well while editing, and hers needed no editing at all, seriously...totally flawless. 

Then there's Gabby. Holy moly, talk about a gorgeous baby!! Not only was she gorgeous, but she was cool as a cucumber like her daddy. You would never know that this little miracle had been adopted.  What an amazing story.  I am such a people watcher and love, love to hear others stories. Gabrielle is going to have an amazing and loving life with her parents.

It was an awesome morning.

They are such a beautiful family. I loved doing their maternity session and it was so wonderful to meet little Jackson 10 weeks later.  Matt has two little boys from his previous marriage, so they are going to be very busy, I can totally relate. Jackson's skin was silky and smooth, and he was just perfect to photograph.
