Loved working with this little guy.  He was so cooperative and absolutely beautiful!  There is something about his little mouth that is just so sweet!

Mr. Smiley!

In his great grandpa’s baby cradle.  So special!

And, we even got a shot with big brother!  What a handsome little fella–look at those beautiful eyes!

In daddy’s arms.

Look at those cheeks!

A special shot with great grandma’s hands.

Big brother and little brother feet!

Congrats guys!  He is GORGEOUS!  xo andrea

  baby posing 101 August 10, 2011   

Working on some new posing techniques!  We “borrowed” this little guy to practice our newborn poses and sharpen up on some skills.  Looking forward to adding more “artsy” and unique to our newborn photos!  I must give a shout out to my friend Shack for her help in this little venture!  Enjoy!

  sweet as pie! August 9, 2011   

Loooved working with these folks!  It was very HOT day–which is no big surprise around here–but to photograph in this heat is tough on me and the clients.  But, these guys were champs!  Such a cute family!

And this little guy was most definitely as sweet as pie and as cute as they come!  What a priceless expression!

His daddy is a farrier–meaning a person who makes horseshoes.  So how fitting are these next two pix!

Hello chub-a-licious feet!!!!

And my personal favorite.  This little guy had just begun walking and I loved how he used his high, wide steps and how he used his arms for balance.  This will soon be just a memory! Glad we captured it!
