Princess M

SixWeeksJLP

Six weeks new … sleeping like a princess on a pile of heirloom baby afghans and quilts … and she doesn’t seem to mind the little pea! She’s waiting to wear her silver crown when she awakes. 

Twice the Love!

Two little blessings sent from above … twice the smiles, twice the LOVE!

Can you tell this family loves all things STL Blues and Disney?

A new baby is like the beginning of all things: wonder, hope, a dream of possibilities!

Welcome to Our World!

Big sister and brother meet their newborn sister and are all smiles and cuddles!

These two are going to be both entertainers and protectors of her. 

They loved on her and counted all her toes and fingers too!

A Very Hungry Caterpillar

Little sister brought her baby brother her favorite bookThe Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle–and he was completely mesmerized by it, as you can see!

The cocoon and hat were crocheted by Lake Effect Creations. You can find her Etsy shop online at etsy.com

Isn’t he adorable in it? A beautiful creation in God’s world!

Zzzz.

Tiny Details

Collage ACN 1 JLP

These are a few of my favorite things!

Eyelashes. Ears. Fingers. Toes. Baby skin.

Tiny noses, lips, and chins.

What a precious miracle he is!

Lovely in Lavender

Image

Fresh as a daisy … only 11 days “new” …

Her mommy chose her dress, her big sister chose her headband and flower, and her grammy crocheted the lavender afghan for her. She is dearly loved.

I’m so glad I got to meet her so soon after her birth and take photos for her family. Except for a few minutes of sleep time photos, she was wide awake and watching everything, and by the time we finished, it appeared that Baby Elena wanted to talk too! I wonder what she was thinking!

Love Serene

A baby girl is a precious gift wrapped in love serene.

Welcome to the world, baby Elena!

I thank the Lord for you and for your loving family.

Doesn’t her daddy’s gaze toward her just melt your heart?

And isn’t she lovely on lavender?

December Debutante

Dreamy…Creamy… A few captures of baby Willow, just two weeks old, so fresh, soft, and sweet.

Willow with her two very happy, proud, and thankful grandmas — Grandma Linda and Grandma Sandy ADORE her! Willow, you are indeed a heaven-sent gift!

Here’s Willow in a little Christmas red… While Mommy was at a meeting, I captured this special Daddy & Willow love!

iheartfaces = Dramatic B&W Photo Challenge

This week’s challenge at iheartfaces is to share a dramatic B&W photo. Here’s my choice for this challenge.

It melts my heart to see the love and affection children can show for their newborn family member! Here S and X  look tenderly at ten-day-old baby Ava, while they hold her tiny fingers so caringly. X gives his baby sister a tender kiss on her forehead.

Children are a heritage from the LORD!

Skip over to iheartfaces to see beautiful photos for this week’s dramatic b&w challenge! Just click on the camera.

Taylor

Baby Taylor was wide awake for his two week photos and didn’t mind being swaddled, changed, moved from here to there, and given lots of attention.

Doesn’t he look so handsome in blue? And he’s lying on a soft, crocheted shawl made by his Grammy. It’s beautiful!

Taylor is well-loved by his mommy, daddy, and big sister Bailey, who gives him frequent kisses and toys.

It was such a pleasure capturing Taylor’s cute expressions and spending time with the new family of four! Blessings to you all!

Newborn Ava

Here’s Ava at 10 days old! She is a cutie-petutie and spent most of the hour sleeping soundly. What an awesome opportunity it was to capture sweet Ava so early in her life! She has an adoring sister and brother too who showed their love to her. Each is truly a gift from the Lord.

And here she is with her adorable, adoring siblings … God is so good!
