She is hilarious and has such a great sense of humor. I always go home with a stomach ache after we hang out.

I’m so excited for her to go off to college and see what she decides to do with her life. Whatever she chooses I know that she will make it big. She is a type of person that will be remembered for something special. God has a purpose for her life, and its exciting to see how it plays out.

This handsome fellow is BIG brother # 1. His name is Gio. He has a rare syndrome called Cloves syndrome. This doesn’t stop him from being a hyperactive, fun loving little man! He was such a sweetheart. A foundation donated a brand new van to help the family out! This van holds Gio’s wheel chair so he can ride more comfortably.  What better way to show their appreciation then take a photo shoot with the van and wear the foundations t- shirts. Keep Calm and Chive On!!

This Cute little guy is BIG brother # 2. His name is D’angelo. This boy has SO much energy! He was making this photo shoot a total blast! Up and down, and all around! He was exploring and picking up all kinds of bugs! Like I said Boys, will be Boys and D is a total example of a boy!  Love it!!

Little things in life.

Standard

You know the saying “love the little things in life” I never truly understand what that meant until I had my son. The little things consist of the way he looks at me when I make a funny noise. The sound that he makes when he’s nursing in the middle of the night. The way he smells after he takes a bath. I love being a photographer because I can capture the “little things in life!”

for example his little Mohawk. The few tiny little hairs that stick up on the top of his head, I could probably count them. The tiny little curl that braces his sweet neck.

DSC_0165

I Love watching him sleep. My favorite saying is ” let him sleep for when he wakes he will move mountains.” This picture catches the essence of that saying.

move mountains

His eye lashes. When he was born he had none. I’m not being sarcastic, he literally had no eye lashes. But look at them now, long and beautiful like his daddy’s.

DSC_0218

His smile is so contagious. He could light up any room with that grin of his.

DSC_0176-2

DSC_0161-2

I love the little things in life. Not just the little things I see on my son, or what he does. The little things like when you see an older couple  holding hands when you walk down the street, or when you wake up in the morning and the first thing you hear out your sunny window is a bird singing. It could even be as simple as flowers. When someone special takes time to get you flowers, that feels you up with joy, or maybe your out and about, and you walk right past a garden. The fresh scent of a blossoming flower.

DSC_0155

We all go through troubling times in our life, but when we stop and THINK about “the little things in life” It makes all the troubles disappear for a few seconds. My challenge for you is to stop whatever your doing and find one little thing in your life that you love. Dwell on it for a few minutes, let it devour your thoughts. Let it be the eye opener you need to just enjoy your life.

“love the little things in life  they matter the most!”

Jamie Model 2014

Check out this beautiful woman. She is one of the most kind hearted people I know. She captures people in with your calming presence. She was such a blast to photograph. If anyone knows Jamie they know that they will walk away with  sore stomach muscles from laughing so hard. She made my job so easy!

We were only going to take pictures fore about an hour, but we ended up staying for about four hours because we were having such a great time. I had the best help in the world, one of my best friends Jairicka..she was my “assistant” and boy if I had the money I would totally hire her to help me all the time. And of course had my beautiful baby boy with us too..who was a champ like with every session I do! He’s my right hand man.

Enjoy the pictures everyone. if anyone is interested in booking a session..hit me up! we will have a blast!

I got the honor of photographing this little handsome man. He is so beautiful, it was really hard for me to focus on my job..all I wanted to do was kiss and love on him.

DSC_0106

What can I say about this session, the best way to describe it was easy breezy! I have photographed newborns before and let me tell you it isn’t easy! But Jaxson was a pro. He waited until I was completely done taking pictures to have a blow out!  His parents are so ecstatic that he is finally here! They are such great parents, and love him with all there hearts, You can just see it by the way they look at him. Pure Love!

Reading to your kiddos!

Standard

Reading to my son is one of the most important things I could ever do for him. Reading to babies stimulates developing senses, builds listening and memory skills, and can help your baby grow up to be a reader. I think when I read a book to malakye its probably one of his favorite moments. Now when I give him books he flips through them ( like a baby should) and sometimes I catch him looking at the picture for more then a few seconds. Its incredible! Read to your babies!!! 🙂
