Just had to post this . . .


I love to see which images parents choose - especially if they are creating a storyboard. Here is Mr. M's storyboard - the center image is a face he makes at this age, and there are several images of him crawling, as he crawled for the first time at the shoot.

I love the images Mom & Dad chose!

Saturday Ikea Breakfast


It is somewhat of a tradition in our household (as many of us are early-birds) to head to Ikea for breakfast on a rainy Saturday morning. $1.00 buys us eggs, sausage, surprisingly good hashbrowns and a croissant. And then we walk around the displays admiring all that Swedish ingenuity, which motivates me to get some chores done around the house.

How do you spend your Saturday mornings?

Watch me grow!

One of our Grow With Me packages includes three photo sessions in baby's first year.

My recommendation for the timing of these sessions is: at birth (within the first 10 days of life), sitting, and then at the baby's first birthday.

A session with a baby who can sit (at around six months) is one of my favorite ages to photograph! Baby can sit up and play with favorite toys, but can't crawl away. Stranger anxiety is at an all time low, and the little cutie pie always laughs at my antics.

Here are a few of my favorite images from a recent 'sitting baby' session. Meet Mr. M, but be warned, he is super cute!



Sometimes, at a first year session, baby will stand or walk by himself for the first time. This time, Mr. M crawled for the first time!


And he only protested a little bit about the Bunnies By the Bay doggie coat!

And I can't leave out his handsome older brother:

Thanks for reading!
