Sweet Baby Snuggles

This post is all about sharing the 3-part photo shoot with my niece, Gracelyn. I was lucky enough to be able to stay at my sisters' house when we went to Atlanta for Imaging, USA, and able to squeeze in some photos of little Gracelyn while I was there. So, of course, I have to share!

This was probably my favorite of the session:
Gracelyn had just woken up from her nap, and the window light was just lovely!

We got a few more in the lovely light, as Beth got her dressed and changed:

Then I went out and looked for the light  and best areas to photograph while Mama fed baby-"big brother" Hoss was my model:

We were able to get a precious few photos outside of Mom, Dad, and baby together:
 She was more interested in Hoss than me, though!

We only stayed outside for a very short time, as it was getting cold and dark very quickly. We came back in, I set the boppy pillow and a soft blanket up on the dining room table , turned her until I could see the light in her eyes, and put daddy to work making her giggle:

Mommy took her soon after, and I captured them by the tree:

She was starting to get a bit fussy at this point, so I stopped trying to photograph her, and just held her so her mama could eat.

I did get a few more of her the morning we left, and a couple of them are my favorite-this first one especially!

I love this expression!

Getting back to posting...a few from a shoot before Christmas

I have mostly gone to posting over at my other blog,, but I am trying to get back to posting my photography here. Today I am sharing a few from a shoot before Christmas with one of my twin daughters. She's twelve going on twenty, as they all seem to be these days!
 The idea for this shoot was a bit of a society girl, with a lace dress, heels, fur wrap, and pearls. The holly bushes behind my house added just a bit of a Christmas-y feel to the shoot.

We did a few without her glasses, but she said she felt much more confident with them on-and I have to say, they do look super cute on her!
