D. Baby Shower

I love parties, birthdays, showers...

if we're celebrating someone,
count me in!
we spend so much time/resources on the details of those parties-


"a sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost"

Giggles, secrets
sometimes tears~
Sisters and friends
throughout the years.

"A sister is a forever friend"


Baby T.

...introducing Miss T!

I had a dozen more props and goodies waiting just for this little princess but she wasn't having her session today-  At 2 days young, she already knows just what she wants-that's a Merwin girl for 'ya ;0)
fortunately, the 'lil 9+ pounds of pure love is my niece...which means she'll be seeing tons more of this "crazy lady with the camera".
My (T's momma) and I are planning lots more fun photo sessions that include the 3 sisters, flowers, and plenty of giggles.  Be still my heart.

Since Miss T wasn't too interested in letting her auntie pose her, I focused on her tiny details...
  (those ones we forget from the fog of sleepless nights)
The sweet creases in their chubby hands, unique 'lil ears, and
the adorable folds in their arms.
She certainly is.

Lucky for me, T's mom says she's going to "share her"-
which is good because I'm already itching to hold her again.
"Babies are such a nice way to start people"
Welcome to our family, sweet girl...
we couldn't be happier that you're here.


twins turning 2...

brother W. & sis V.
 birthday session.

Hearts entwined
Twenty fingers, twenty toes,
two sweet babies with cheeks of rose.
Born on the same day, two gifts from above,
lives entwined, two babies to love.
~Author Unknown

It's double the giggles and double the grins, and double the LOVE if you're blessed with twins.  ~Author Unknown

Good things come in two's.

And ladies, if there's any doubt that men are  born with an annoyance of the camera,
let this face below be noted:

'Lil W. has half the photos than his sister because any sort of posing, smiling and kissing for the camera were just not on his agenda today (I know, can you imagine?)

Sweet V, on the other hand, can rock it out behind the lens!
  There wasn't a prompting  she wouldn't follow.  
Smiling, turning, and keeping that twinkle in her eyes... love it.
Happy Birthday W & V
and welcome to the terrific two's!


the F. brothers

oH bOy!

Little boys come in all shapes and sizes, 

Shy and adventurous, full of surprises, 
With misshapen halos and mischievous grins, 
Small dirty faces, and sweet, sticky chins. 

They'll keep you so busy, and yet all the while 
Nothing can brighten the world like their smile. 
And no greater treasure has brought homes more joy 
Than a curious, active, and lovable boy!

Siblings are the people we practice on, the people who teach us about fairness and cooperation and kindness and caring - quite often the hard way.  ~Pamela Dugdale 

Between the innocence of babyhood and the dignity of manhood, we find a delightful creature of a boy.

Baby C.

I have been waiting for this baby for a vErY long time!
...he was born to our dear friends who also live right next door to us.

This is the first of many more photo sessions to come (being this momtog who's always around). 
Baby C. was such an angel the entire time and I'm so thankful he's finally here.


Welcome to the world, little one.
