Preston {1 year}, 06.03.12

Happy first (almost - tomorrow!) birthday to this sweet little man!  Preston I can't believe you have been part of our lives for a whole YEAR now!  I hope you have a very special day!  We love you!

Preston, age 1 - fun cake smash collage!

At first, he was not that excited to have his pictures taken.  Or maybe he just doesn't like my truck stool!

That's more like it!

So handsome!

Not sure about this cake business.

So happy!

Mimicking me! :)

Still just not sure about the cake!

The Mayr-Swietek Family, 05.20.12

My old friend Stephanie from high school, and her little family, moved to Chicago!  Before they headed east, they asked me to take some family pictures of them together with her parents.  I know they are all going to miss each other so much! (PS - not sure why the photos are so fuzzy on the blog - I will have to figure that out!)

Silly Oliver!  Can't believe he's going on 3!

Love this spot with the tall grass!

Jaiden Love {newborn}, 05.18.12

Once again, I feel so honored to be able to meet and photograph so many beautiful little ones!  Jaiden was no exception - such a sweetie and the perfect model!

Jaiden Love, 3 weeks new

Such a fun opportunity to try out this shot I'd been eyeing for a long time, considering Jaiden's middle name is "Love."
Another happy baby!

With Daddy's baseball glove

Precious girl

Love baby feet... and baby feet with Grandpa's ring and Grandma's hands are even more special!

Love those big brown eyes, too!

Definitely a princess in the making!

William Robert {newborn}, 05.17.12

It's always so much fun when my little photography business allows me the opportunity to re-connect with people from my past!  This handsome little guy belongs to one of my roommates from college!  William is absolutely sweet as can be!  I'm excited I got to meet and photograph him, all the while catching up with his Mommy!  Congrats Katie and Kevin!

William Robert, 1 week ol!

He's a John Deere baby :)

Love this John Deer quilt made by Grandma!

He was so smiley, too!

Love baby feet!

And love newborn eyes, too!

And baby lips... baby everything!

Seriously so happy!

Sleepy sweetie!

Handsome boy!
