Baby Emmett...2 weeks old!

What a wonderful afternoon I spent with an adorable 2 week old...Emmett!!! LOVE the name! No-he was not named after Twilight (although I wouldn't be opposed). :) His dad chose it for other reasons! ;) After only a few minutes with Amanda-I felt like I had known her forever! I could have hung out with this family all night!!! We were so glad Todd was able to sneak out of work a little early to be in some of these priceless pics! Thank you for such a wonderful experience you two! I look forward to seeing you guys throughout Emmett's first year! :) YAY!!!! Amanda and Todd-enjoy your sneak peek!!!

can make when photographing a little one!

Baby Boy Bryson...5 days old

I was SO fortunate to have the opportunity to drive up to Lafayette to meet Bryson! He was the SLEEPIEST baby-sooo cuddly & absolute perfection!!! Brad and Allison have been friends for awhile and I could not be any happier for the arrival of their precious little one! Allison is a Kindergarten teacher and she and I taught together for 3 years in Lafayette. She has such an infectious personality and exudes everything it takes to work with a classroom full of 5 year olds! :) How lucky I am to capture such happy moments for the people I love! :) Enjoy your sneak peek!!!

Here is Bryson...just sleeping...

Allison & Brad-I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!!!
CONGRATS again! You will be amazing parents!!! Bryson is an absolute keeper!!!
