super chubba-licious!!

Isn’t he just perfect?  I loved how preciously plump he was.  Just look at those cheeks!!!  I think he pulls at my heart strings because my little Noah had chubby cheeks too.  Wish I had pics like this of him, and all of mine, for that matter.  This family was so great!  Their beautiful home had windows that photographers dream of.  Their little girl was a doll!  I just love to see little 2 year olds with their new little siblings.  So sweet!  Well, it was in this case.  She wasn’t thrilled to be in the pics, but I think we got some cute captures anyway.  Especially some priceless ones of Dad reading to her while mom fed the babe.

my first belly to babe sessions – Isn’t he sweet?

It was so fun to do the sessions on both sides, belly to babe.  This is the babe from the “perfect belly” mom.  They are such a darling family and so fun to work with.  Big brother is just precious, you can tell he loves his new little brother.  The babe was simply sweet, just look at him.  Doesn’t he make you want another?  It did me, for a few minutes anyway.

blossom baby

I was recently in Utah for a Woman’s Conference and visiting family.  I couldn’t get over how beautiful spring is there!!  Remember, I’m from AZ, the contrast was shocking.  Anyway, I was in LOVE with all the blossoms, I wanted to take them home with me.  So, when my sister asked me to do a photo session with her new niece, I couldn’t resist.  I had them go out and cut down a blossom branch.  I have seen the hammock from a branch many times, kind of a new trend, but never a blossom branch. :)She was so precious.  I couldn’t believe how perfect she was.  Her beautiful dark hair and her plump little lips.  Ohhhh so sweet!  I loved ever minute of this session. img_3534-edit

lisa - Love it Kath. What a cutie. Great backdrops!

Joy Williams - He IS handsome! Love the color and clarity on these, Kathy, they are fabulous!

kate & clint

I was just visiting my family in Utah  and had a chance to take some pics of my baby sister and her handsome husband.  (Sorry, Kate, You’ll always be my baby sister.  Love ya!)  I can’t even believe that she is married!  I’m so glad she is though,  she got quite a catch.  He is a gem and treats her so well.  He’s  a great Dad too!  Nice job Kate. 😉

Anyway, we had a blast out on our photoshoot.  Kate scouted out some cool areas in her hood before I got there.  She has quite the creative eye, I think she needs to get into photography too.  She’d be great.  As for the pics, there were too many to choose from, so here comes a mini gallery.
