I blinked, and it happened, just like that. This handsome, big hearted, caring, moody, singing, music loving, always dancing around teenager is 14 today. I'm still trying to figure out how this happened. His voice is deeper than his dads. He sings bass in the choir. His foot is bigger than mine and He is catching up in height. I'm afraid to blink again, can't imagine him any older! Love you to the moon and back and back and back! Keep on smilin' kid and joking around 'Ace', it's contagious!
Two months already?!
Didn't we just take her 2 week photos last week sometime?!
Wow Wow Wubzy, time is flying by...
We had to sneak sister in a few!
Photos can be so deceiving! Really though! Have you ever had one of those days where you put the cereal in the fridge and the milk in the cupboard?!? This was one of those days. I blame it all on the recent stress of the story I told you in my last post I would share soon. (Those who have me personally on facebook already know about it.) I drove out to Moore to take these. The night before I went to Lowes and purchased this large sheet of paneling(which I adore) to use in my photo shoots. I will not carry this thing around with me to every shoot (it is a whopping 8ft x 4.5ft or something close to that). I will use it when the babies come to me. However, I made an exception this time because this baby's mommys car is out of commission and I was dying to try out my new "diy" project aka "a baby princess bed photo prop"! So I get there and start setting up and cannot find my backdrops, non of them. Thinking to myself I say, "I know I checked to make sure they were still in the trunk," When "trunk" hit my mind I soon realized I did indeed make sure they were in the trunk of my car, then I loaded everything else up into the truck because an 8ft x 4.5ft piece of wood cannot fit in my trunk. I hopped in the truck and drove off. grrr So as I'm really frustrated, not wanting to drive all the back to Del City, we looked around the house and found this beautiful blanket on one of the beds. I kinda want to go back and steal it! Would any of you tell on me?!? That's not all that is deceiving about these photos... Saraya, the older sister here, was supposed to be in some photos too. She acted up the whole time, well, let's be honest about it, she acted like most 3 year olds getting their photos taken. She kept sticking her tongue out at me, we finally just decided to let her go play and focus on the baby. After she went into the kitchen and fed herself a red popsicle and some other snacks she jumped into the pics and look what we got. Amazing! haha ...you just never know!
(My craziness did not end there. I had another shoot later in the day. I set my kelvin temp on the camera real low when doing indoor shoots so the pics do not turn out too orangy. I shot all of the next shoot with it still low. It was an outdoor shoot, the pics turned out pretty much blue. Lots of photoshopping to fix my error coming soon. ~another grrr)
Oh well, It's Saturday, sMiLe, drink coffee, and hug your babies because they are rapidly growing right before your eyes! Check back soon to see the other shoot (the blue one)! :)
Another sweet lil' princess to photograph! I had to drive a bit farther to meet her than the last one. This little Miss is blessing # 7 for her family! She is the first to be born in Kansas. Everyone should have at least one in Kansas, right?!? I did!!
~all that hair!
~maybe a little corny, but we had to do it! We kept calling her baby Ruth.
It dawned on us that she needed a photo with a BabyRuth.
It did not take much coaxing to get her dad to go get one! haha
~more is always better!
~the girls broke the tie! Girls rule ~ Boys Drool
~Congrats Caleb, Livia and family! She is a Beautiful addition to your Awesome family!
I LoVe Babies! Hey! Did I mention that I LoVe Babies!! Okay, so here I am in my cool blues ready to photograph a real live princess's arrival into this wonderful world. Well, maybe it's not always wonderful, but babies sure make it a whole lot better!! I may or may not have taken a few more photos than normal. It just happened. There was just to much cuteness to capture! These guys are going to be great Big Brothers, I just know it! Congrats Jordan and Amber! Your little lady is nothing less than perfect! So here we go, Their Birth Story... September 5th... Arrival to hospital 10am... Scheduled C-Section 12pm... Breathe... God's got this, just as Always. EVERYthing is gonna be just fine...
~Delayed one hour, C-Section begins at 1pm~
Due to serious complications, that only God foresaw, I was unable to take photos in the delivery room. (sad face here) However, guided by God's loving hands, the surgeon and doctors were able to keep mommy and baby safe and little Princess Willow Grace made her appearance!
~ 10 fingers and 10 toes ~
~ shhhh, DON'T tell her MOM I got to hold her FIRST ~
~ GOING TO MEET HER ~
This part kinda reminds me of a blind date. You've heard how great she is and you are dying to see what she looks like. The anticipation is such a killer!!

Congrats you guys! I love you and your precious little family!
I am delighted that I am this pretty little ladies BFF!
She drives me batty sometimes.
I can't even sit on the pew in church without her hands
constantly touching my face or playing with my hair.
Keep hugging, keep clinging, keep snuggling,
'cause you'll always be my baby girl!
Happy Birthday Felicity Adeline! xoxoxo
This momma had her baby just a few short hours after taking this photo! Congrats you guys! Can't wait to come capture those baby photos!
~so much love~
It's another GIRL!!! Congrats Tryphena!!
Congrats on your soon coming baby girl! Going by her due date, we'll be meeting her next week sometime! Saraya, you're going to be a great big sister!
This girl is so precious! I know, I know, I am a bit partial because she is mine, but really, she steals so many peoples hearts with her genuine sweetness. I love that she still plays with her little sisters and still has her sweet little girl innocence. She loves to please and make people happy. God has blessed me so much by lending her to me for these past 11 years! He placed a true jewel in my hands when He gave me her! xoxo
Yep, it's true... so hard to believe... she is 11!
Yes! I will travel for the opportunity to capture sweet and adorable photos for precious families! I was down in Texas for these photos!! So happy for them, they get their baby girl in just a few weeks!!
Our photo shoot was delayed due to rain that was not in the forecast. However, the rain was needed so we did not complain. We just hung out around their house and got a few photos while we waited for the shower to pass. So glad we did, we captured so really cute ones!
If you have little ones, you NEED to call TODAY
