Clayton turns 1

We’re a bit early on this session as we had to work around some scheduling, but it is time to celebrate another big birthday! It is always amazing how fast that first year goes by, especially seeing all the changes that happen. Clayton turns one next week, and doesn’t show any signs of slowing things down. He’s been walking for a few months already and loves to get into anything and everything. He can be quite serious and sit back taking in his surroundings, but when that smile comes out, it lights up the room. It’s been a great year Clayton, and I look forward to watching you grow in the coming years! Happy Birthday.

There is one thing you can count on when it comes to babies. They do things on their own schedule. Take Barrett for instance. His momma and I had scheduled her maternity portrait session in early January, well ahead of Barrett’s early March due date. ┬áThe day before the session I get a call informing me they are on the way to the hospital because Barrett has decided he was ready. The doctors persuaded him to bake a little longer, but at 32 weeks, he made his entrance. Weighing in at 4lbs and 11 oz, he was still required some time in the NICU. But he let everyone know that he was a tough little guy, and after only a little over two weeks, he was ready to come home. He’s put on 2 lbs and is doing great. I could not be happier with the out come of this story, and look forward to watching Barrett grow up.

Welcome Barrett!

Brandt is 1 (heck of a cool kid)

Things have been a bit quiet around here lately as I’ve been finishing up things from 2014 and planning for 2015. I can’t wait to meet all the babies of 2015 and meet new families along the way. Of course I’m looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces as well. One adorable little face that I’ve been looking forward to seeing again belongs to this guy, Brandt. Last fall when we first met, he was a bit on the stoic side and didn’t flash his cute grin too much, but as he approaches his first birthday this weekend, he was in full-on party mode. He was in such a good, playful mood and had us all in stitches. And Brandt knows how to put some cake away. It has been a while since I’ve had a good cake smash session where the birthday boy/girl wasn’t afraid to get a little messy. Brandt was more than happy to oblige. Happy 1st Birthday to you Brandt! Be sure to leave him birthday wishes in the comments below.

Finishing off a wonderful 2014 with this sweet little girl who came for a visit just before Christmas. Miss Addison made the trip from just outside of Knoxville to Nashville for her newborn portraits and upon arriving she was wide-eyed and bushy tailed and didn’t want to miss a thing. At just over a month old she was also testing out her new skill in cooing, which was as adorable as could be. Something I miss when working with those sleepy 5 day olds. After a bit of coaxing, we were able to get Addison to take a few short naps for some sleepy portraits as well. Big sister Chole was also on hand and the two girls seem quite taken with each other. Thanks for coming to visit me Addison, and welcome to the world!

Happy Baby Portrait

I love watching families grow! I first met this family two years ago when they welcomed their son Ethan to the world. Well last week, Ethan became a big brother to the quite adorable Colin. Ethan seems quite interested in this new addition to the family and was a happy to help fetch new diapers and kiss on his baby brother when asked. Colin was all about being wide-eyed and bushy tailed for much of the session, but finally tuckered out to give us some sweet sleeping baby portraits. Welcome to the world Colin!
