I try really hard not to get behind on my blogging, but I have been extremely busy lately. Aside from this being my busiest time of year, I also have family in town AND I have something very exciting in the works. I can’t wait to share it with you! But, that’s going to have to wait a little while. Right now, I’m just going to share what my computer screen has been sporting…
I was so happy to meet this little one. She was such a … baby. And by that I mean she had such a classic “baby way” about her. Little coos and kicking her legs and trying to chew on her dress. She had her fair share of fussy moments, but that’s just because she liked being held and I had no problem putting my camera down to scoop her up. Little Vanilla Scoop. And when I held her, she settled in and got comfy. Who doesn’t love a cuddle bug of a baby?! But despite how much I loved her cuddles, I HAD to put her down every now and then in order to get some photos like this:
A close-up of a coo in progress:
She surprised us all when she DELIGHTED in some tummy time. She was very good at it, too. She was rightfully proud.
I love her smile! Such a beautiful baby… from her expertly held-up head down to her toes.
To her proud mama: It was so nice to meet you and I’m so glad your sister made the trip from Mississippi for the session. (And I’m glad you came from Bellvue!) You guys made a great team and I enjoyed our talks while little Scoop was being fed. I hope you like your preview- the rest will be finished soon!

I was ridiculously excited to photograph this little one again. I was amazed by how much she had grown… and what a little spunkster! She did a great job of making me utilize every single one of my tricks. She’s a two-year-old after all, so she was just doing her job. Lucky for me, I knew all about Dora and I can do a mean Swiper-the-fox imitation. I loved to hear her little voice say, “Swiper no swiping!” Me: “OH maan!” (If you don’t watch Dora, then you have no idea what that means. IF you DO watch Dora, then you really love your kid. )
In the beginning, she had this cute little quirk of playing with her hair:
I love the model stance in this next one… Spunk. Ster.
My favorite thing about her would have to be quick and quiet little giggles.
It was a beautiful day, so we went outside for a bit, too. Fierce:
She’s so lovely…
To her Daddy: Father of the year award goes to you (we’ll see how long you can hold onto it until a dad misses a big game to attend a session… with it being football season and all.. it DOES happen from time to time. It’s rare… but it happens.) YOU, however, really rocked at being the only parent for this session. (That doesn’t mean you weren’t missed, DeAnna! I hate that you had to work that day!) But, Joey, you were a champ. I hope you like your preview, guys, and the rest will be finished soon! I love your little spunkster!

Just like I predicted from his previous session… SOMEbody’s turning into quite the comedian:
He was hilarious… he was charming… and he was BEYOND active. I’ve only had one other 6-month old that was able to crawl until this day. (and that was 4 yrs ago!) This boy had more determination than any baby I’ve ever seen. Don’t let these photos fool you- he didn’t hold still for a minute. WATCH OUT WORLD! I mean it… with such determination … this boy is sure to be nothing but successful in life.
Yes, I’m talking about YOU, little buddy:
I love curious-ness:
Look at that face! He’s beautiful.
And as if his advanced mobility wasn’t impressive enough… he had to show me this:
And as if that wasn’t CUTE enough… he went ahead and did this:
What a little Smoocheroo! He is too much.
To his Nana: Thanks for letting me snuggle him immediately upon your entry into my studio. I can’t say enough about your grandson. He is such a joy to be around, and my face is going to hurt from smiling while I work on all these photos. I hope you like your preview- the rest will be finished soon!

Really? Are you serious? This baby boy was just getting over being sick? No way. Aside from his little red nose (don’t look for it, I retouch stuff like that )… he gave me no clues. He was so pleasant and SWEET… and he was as precious as they come. This is one of those babies that shoppers must go nuts over in the grocery stores. His baby blues take many an eye away from many a shopping list.
Anyway, I squealed at the amount of new hair that came in since his last session. I also noticed that his cheeks deflated a bit, but not enough to make me sad… he didn’t lose ALL of his squishiness, thank goodness. I could squish him to pieces. Just like how he squishes his Yurtle:
And look at his darling profile… I just love it to pieces.
Want to know what else I love to pieces? They way he sits.
… and the way he looks up at me. Hi, buddy.
Awww, hi buuuuuddy…
“Will flirt for Puffs”:
And this is why I ALWAYS encourage my clients to bring the blankies:
Upon his lightning-quick blankie removal, he was proud to reveal his rockstar hairdo:
I just love him to pieces. I try really hard (and it’s always difficult) to limit my blog photos to 6… no more than 8. But, I just had to toss that last one in. Freebie!
To his parents: I’m still so thrilled to hear that he outgrew his dairy allergy. I know that will make things much easier on you. Your boy is nothing short of delightful and I’m having fun working on these photos. He’s gorgeous! I hope you like your preview ~ The rest will be finished soon!
