Eli {children’s photography – columbia, md}

Meet Eli. This ADORABLE, little piece of smiley goodness just turned one! I can’t recall a time I’ve ever really heard him fuss or whine, or even not smile for that matter!! He is such a sweet heart and you could just squeeze him to pieces. Look at this great grin for yourself :D

The Dickenson Family {family photography – ft. meade, maryland}

Meet the Dickensons. Oh how I love this sweet family! My son is eager to steal their youngest and have her as his sister. That is not a joke! Though I wouldn’t wish it on people, we were able to share deployment woes and single parenting fun over the summer while both of our husbands were gone, and it meant the world to me. This family is precious to us and I am over-joyed to share these photos with you!

i heart faces

This week’s challenge over on iheartfaces.com is about little ones. I LOVE this photo, and I LOVE this family so it seemed like a no brainer :D This is sweet Evelynn. She and her sister are very literally gifts from God, and we love having them in our family!!

The Bennett Family {family photography – elkridge, md}

Meet the Bennetts. This is a great family we met over a year ago at church. When they asked me to meet with them and take Cece’s pictures I was so excited! She is such a doll. She was pretty serious for me through our session, but even serious she’s one cute baby!

Henry

Meet my sweet heart. This little guy is a small replica of the other man I love :D Henry does many, many things well, but sitting for me is NOT one of them. He hates it! He will run as fast and as far as he can when he sees my camera come out, which means he has few photos documenting this year and Grammy has even fewer covering her piano and mantel! But on those rare occasions that he feels like tossing me a bone we get pure magic. This is my wild man, my love, my Henry.

Selah

Meet Selah. I can not believe this baby is 1! I have had the privilege of doing Selah’s photos at 2 weeks, 6 months, 9 months, and now 1 year. She is such a doll!! Unfortunately, this session was one delay after another so there isn’t enough to do a full blog post, but we are doing a family session soon and you’ll be able to see this amazing family all together! Until then, here’s sweet Selah at 2 weeks and at 1 year!

The Frenches {family photographer – odenton, md}

Meet the French family. Again! This is the third time I was able to work with these guys and I am always happy to do so! Sweet Jillian is always so fun and her blue eyes are AMAZING! It took her a little while to warm up to me, but even shy she did a great job. And by the end I had my own designated bubble wand, so I think we fast tracked it to BFFs :D Take a look at this great family!
