With the July 4th Holiday falling in the middle of the week, out-of-town family came in for a visit this weekend. One of those special family members was my 6 month old niece, Kimberlyn. She is such a doll and has a personality to match.

Things haven’t always been smiles and roses with this little bundle. She had colic for the first three months of her little life and was miserable. Since the number one concern was to make her comfortable and keep mom and dad sane, I wasn’t able to get her in front of my camera as much as I would have liked. However, that has all changed now. She is such a happy and content baby.

I was so excited when my sister-in-law said she wanted to come over this afternoon for a quick little session. She said she had purchased an adorable outfit and wanted to get a few shots of her in it. Boy, she wasn’t kiddin’…her outfit was so stinkin’ cute!! I could take pictures of her all day and sometimes I wonder if her smile would have ever faded.

Here’s some of my favorites:

Kenzie Jo ~ 16 days new

I had recently purchased several new props and was eager to try them out. After posting something on Facebook about needing newborn models I was contacted by Kayla. I was so excited to get the opportunity to capture sweet baby Kenzie Jo. This wasn’t just any newborn shoot, this was a full circle moment. I was lucky enough to capture Kayla & Zach’s engagement pictures and the (at the time) most memorable day of their lives…their wedding day.

I could have stayed all day, loving on sweet Kenzie. I am mesmerized by all the dark hair she has…I just love it! She was such a trooper and she didn’t mind me interupting her schedule, which I greatly appreciated.

I am anxiously awaiting the day when I get to capture their family pictures. In the meantime, here are a few pictures from today.
