Mr. J ~ 4 weeks old

This little guy slept better than any newborn I've ever photographed, which was SO surprising because he is more than 4 weeks old! Meet Mr. J ~

The making of a smile ~ Rylee

I had a blast spending some time with my sister, her hubby and their precious 3 month old daughter Rylee a few weekends ago. It is still totally surreal that my baby sister (I was 14 when she was born) is a mother...and a GREAT one at that! They do so well with her and are madly in love with her. Derrick can hardly concentrate on anything else when she's in the room...and I can't blame him, she is just adorable!

The making of a smile, Rylee style...

They love this little lady to pieces....fishy face kisses ~

And check out Rylee's amazing nursery~

Lauren, Derrick and Rylee, I love you all! Thanks for letting Auntie Kori sleep over and snuggle with you when mommy and daddy would give you up for a minute! =)

Alliyah ~ 9 days old

Meet sweet Alliyah....her mom won the give away from Sunday night and was kind enough to deliver this sweet baby the next morning! Nikki and family, thank you for traveling all the way down here and allowing me to photograph your precious new arrival! And I'm super pumped about how nice it was to do this shoot in my home and not have to take all my gear with me! WhooHoo!!

New Studio, New Blog!!

I've had visions of turning my office in to dedicated studio space for a LONG time! It makes my heart SO happy that it is now out of my head and into reality!! I'm excited to try it out for the first time (with it looking all pretty and organized and freshly painted) tomorrow morning with a sweet 9 day old little girl! So here are the long awaited pictures...and just so you appreciate the transformation, we must start with a before picture! All I can say is YIKES! =)
Drum roll please.........From the same position, the after
And now from all the other angles!
I couldn't have done this with out the help of many people! I asked fellow photographers so many questions and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate how you were so willing to answer those questions! Friends who helped watch the kids and friends who helped paint, but most of all, my biggest supporter, my husband Brian, for giving me the go ahead to actually do this and for all your help in the process and most importantly for believing in me and allowing me to do what I love to do! I love you, babe!
And a bit about the new blog! I've been wanting to revamp my blog for ages too, but just haven't had the time to do it. I was so thankful when my sister told me about the lady who just designed her new blog for her awesome new business Lily Field Furniture. I contacted Erika at The Fairy Blogmother to ask her if she could help me do the things I wanted to do with my blog and she ROCKED it! And just to add to her awesomeness, she had her first baby in the midst of this design process and still got it finished and launched in time! I'm still working on adding all the stuff I need to add, but I just couldn't wait to share it with you all and I thought it was perfect to reveal both the blog and new studio space at the same time!
Super blessed to be doing what I love and am so thankful to all who make it happen!!
