Many of you know this little man that I photographed this past weekend. Many of you may not. Allow me to share. Baby "M" was born on November 18, 2009. He was a healthy little one, weighing in at a little over 8 pounds. Just a three weeks after he was born, he was rushed to the Children's Hospital emergency room. Doctors there discovered some heart problems; a coarctation of the aorta and a VSD (aka "a hole in the heart"). He had surgery to repair the coarcation just a couple days later. The VSD would be closely monitored to see if surgery was needed or not. After a couple months, his cardiologist felt the hole would not close on its own and it would be beneficial to go ahead and repair it. At 4 months old, baby "M" was having open heart surgery. Two months later he's "a brand new baby" as his mommy says! Happy, healthy and full of giggles and smiles...he's a cutie!! He's faced many challenges in the short time he's been with us but, oh how awesome to see how God has worked in his little life already! He's got BIG plans for this little guy and I'm so thankful to be able to capture these moments and watch him grow!!!! Warning: there's a TON of cuteness to follow!!! :o)

Jason & Amanda had their brand new baby boy yesterday!!!! He had to be delivered by c-section and made his entrance at 3:05pm. He weighed 8 pounds 2 ounces and was 20.5 inches long. He is SUPER CUTE and it makes me even more anxious to get his newborn session done on May 29th!!!! He's going to be such a great little subject to capture! You're all going to want to eat him up when you see him...chubby little face and chunky little legs...yes you will!! A big congratulations to Jason & Amanda on their new bundle of joy!!!! I'm so happy for you!!

How are all of my AWESOME friends doing today?! It's a beautiful day and life is grand! I hope you all are having a fabulous day! Has anyone ever noticed that I use !!!! a LOT?! I can't really help it, I'm just always that excited! :o)
I have some exciting news to share with you today! I recently did a maternity shoot with my amazing friend Amanda (http://christywilliamson.blogspot.com/2010/04/with-god.html) and I just LOVED so many of her images that I posted a TON of images from her session here on the blog (see link above in case you missed it). She called me today to let me know that her little man will make his grand entrance into this world no later than May 20th!!!!! I love newborns and can hardly wait to meet this little miracle boy! If he holds off until the 20th then I'll be doing his newborn session on May 29th, so, keep checking in for some adorable baby eye candy! I know he's going to be so precious!
I have another awesome friend lined up for a family session in about a week. Misty is a stay-at-home mom who is extremely talented with all that fancy baby and children's boutique-style clothing, like monogramming, embroidery, etc. You know what I'm talking about! :o) She has the opportunity to place an advertisement in a little children's magazine this month. She needed someone to design an ad page for her. I thought it would be a fun thing to do and a way to get creative with her ADORABLE little business name; The Polka Dot Patch. Below is the ad and her brand new custom logo. I encourage everyone with children to check out her photo albums on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/thepolkadotpatch). There is so much cute stuff on there!
This weekend I have a large family session that I'm really excited about...6 children-ages 15 years to 2 months! Wow!!! I'm pretty confident there will not be a dull moment at all during this session!! I'm looking forward to spending some time with this family!
Until next time...get out and enjoy the beautiful weather!!!!!
Love you all!

I hope all of you mothers had a WONDERFUL Mother's Day yesterday! I had a sick baby, so, mine could have been a little bit better. :o( I'm still so very blessed and thankful to be able to celebrate Mother's Day! What an honor to be entrusted with such a special gift! I do not take my responsibility lightly and I pray that I can raise my daughter, and any future children, to rely on and trust in the Lord with all that's within them. There will be no greater success or achievement worth more than that.
This week is my last week of school until this Fall. I welcome the break and can hardly believe I am finishing up my first year of college!! This break from school will allow me to have more time for family and photography---Two of my passions! I've already had several bookings for photo sessions this summer and I'm so excited about them! I want to take this opportunity to let all of you know that there are still some slots available if you're interested in a session this summer.
