Sweet little Levi ::Bossier City newborn photographer::

Sweet little Levi was another newborn who arrived a bit early, he spent almost 2 months in the NICU but is finally home with his family where he belongs!

He was honestly not really in the mood for a photoshoot.  Believe it or not, he really just wanted to cry but I love that his mom had the best attitude about it- she said, "hey, newborns cry!"

See...adorable even when angry!

Miranda, thanks again for the chance to see little Levi again! I hope he took a nice long nap after I left!

Ryder's first birthday bash! ::Bossier City family photography::

Sweet little Ryder celebrated his first birthday Saturday. After a prediction for some pretty nasty weather, the clouds cleared out for a truly beautiful day!

Ryder is a big Mickey Mouse fan and his party was decorated to match! How cute are these decorations? Almost as cute as little Ryder I think!?!

Candace, thanks so much for inviting me to capture Ryder's birthday! He is too cute and such a blessing! :)

Baby K ::Bossier City newborn photographer::

Sweet baby K arrived a few weeks early and tipped the scales at a whopping 3lbs 2oz. Thankfully, she is home and doing wonderfully! I got the chance to take a few photographs of her last week and have been dying to share them :) She was so tiny and so perfect!

Holly, thank you so much for letting me photograph your newest little girl :)

E family::Bossier City family photography::

Little C was not having a very good weekend (evil stomach bug!) but once she was feeling a little better, only that day as it turned out :( .... we got together for her 9 month portraits and some family pictures also. She is only 6 weeks younger than my daughter and they are too cute together, C is catching up quickly and may even beat Ellie in the race to "who walks first".

Had a blast Anne! I'm so looking forward (*sniff sniff*) to her cake smash and one year pictures that are coming up way way too fast!!

H Family ::Bossier City Family photographer::

I met up with the H family at a local garden that was absolutely.beautiful this past weekend. Their sweet 3 year old was such a little princess and so fun to work with. She kept noticing brides getting their pictures taken in the gardens and said, " Oh look, there's Cinderella or There's Tinkerbell!" Precious!

We had a lot of fun, even with Mr. H and his poor hurt leg. He was a good sport and hobbled around as best he could for a few family pictures :) Thanks  so much for allowing me the chance to photograph your beautiful family Tina!!

I posted this on our family blog, but thought it fitting to share here too :

It has been non stop busy in our house since my husband came home from his deployment. We are always on the go, and it feels like there is never  a moment to just stop and breathe.

I am so thankful to be busy. Especially with my photography. I'm well on my way to being officially in business by my daughter's birthday, just like I promised myself with my new year's resolutions. At the same time, I am trying to remember why I got into photography...capturing memories, and most important to me, is  our memories! I long to just sit down and edit our photos and blog about our little moments, and I'm finding that hard to do! Again, not complaining at all about being busy, I am just struggling with balance! Balancing being a mom to my two munchkins and a wife (after not having to focus on being a wife for almost 6 months!), it is hard to remember there's another person to care for! And balancing work, with family time...I love the opportunity I'm being given, but I have to remember to slow down and remember what made photography so enjoyable sometimes :)

Anyways, all that rambling to say, today I took time to take my kids to a spot where I've been doing several family sessions recently. It's a beautiful art gallery with even more beautiful gardens. Acres of azaleas and beautiful waterfalls, bridges, trees...it's really amazing. We had a picnic (Burger King ;) ), and I just let them play and of course, took a  "few" pictures of them. I'm hoping my clients will forgive me for taking a day off from editing their portraits to indulge myself in editing a few of my own children ;)

Baby R's Cake Smash ::Bossier City child photographer::

Sweet little R is turning one at the end of this month, I can't wait for his Mickey Mouse birthday party! His mom was sweet enough to want me there not only as a friend with my kids but also there to capture his first birthday for her in pictures!

We did a few one year portraits and then moved inside for his cake smash...he was definitely a bigger fan of the cake smash than the other pictures :) He needed a bath when he was done smashing his cake!!
