Beautiful Baby

This sweet angel is Baby P! She is just shy of 6 weeks old and an absolutely adorable little thing! We had some fun today, but she really just wanted her beautiful mommy to hold her. We were able to get some really sweet shots, and I fell in love with the black and white ones. I will have a gallery ready for you in a couple of days.

This morning I had the opportunity to photograph the sweetest little girl! She is a doll! We tried out the vintage carriage (that I love!!) and played a bit and captured some adorable shots!! It took her a bit to warm up, but she wanted to explore and was so curious. I miss that baby stage. I cannot wait to do some more of her and her big brother! Thank you again. I hope you love them!

Back to School....

I cannot even believe how quickly the summer has passed. The older girls are headed back to school today. :-( To their embarrassment I still remember the day that I dropped each of them at kindergarten, and now they are in 6th and 4th grades. Happy Back to School Day!

Smithsonian- Museum of Natural History

We did a little sight seeing this weekend in DC. The kids loved the Smithsonian, the Vintage Carousel and the gorgeous Butterfly Garden. They finished off the day with some yummy ice cream that ended up everywhere!!! LOL We had a ton of fun and I had to share some of my favorite images of the day.
