I recruited a couple of kiddos to help me have some fun with Back to School photos in preparation for the upcoming mini-session special I am running. We had A BLAST!! At the end of it all Kyle said to me “Thanks! We should do this again sometime”! From the mouths of Babes. Each child had over 15 photos in their gallery in under 15 minutes. Here are just some of the favorites. Enjoy.

Just over a year ago I was witness to this beautiful boy coming into the world and it was INCREDIBLE, actually…words can’t describe it. Now he’s healthy, so happy and FREAKISHLY ADORABLE!!! I just love him. Gorgeous baby boy, gorgeous mama, and one gorgeous summer night! Happy Birthday Remmy. Enjoy.

Beautiful pictures; each one is more adorable than the next. It goes without saying that Remmy certainly enjoys having his picture taken.

I love these soooo much! Thank you Amy!!!


Welcome Oskar at 9 Lbs 3 ounces! Love those chubby babies. This cherub was happiest swaddled up and left alone, however he didn’t mind too much when his older sister had him in a choke hold. Too funny. She wasn’t quite sure what to make of her new little brother, I think she might be in for a little *adjustment period*. I absolutely adore this family and wish them all the best. Looking forward to 6 months! Enjoy.
