So much love for this sweet baby girl! Lace is such a pretty little baby with bright, blue eyes, long blonde lashes and the fairest skin. She has a beautiful, floral nursery with hand made accents created by her mama. It's easy to see that Lindsey and Rob are already so in love with their beautiful baby girl! Baby Lace is a growing girl...she was eating every hour during the day and every 2-3 hours at night. Ahh, I remember those days! Even with little to no sleep, mom and dad are so happy!!
Current obsession...baby nurseries. I love them all. You can just feel all of the love and thought that went into planning for this sweet new soul that will one day inhabit the room. This navy and blue themed nursery had the most adorable DIY touches such as mason jar book ends and framed sheets of music because Dad is a musician. So cute!! Don't let him fool you...This normally very sleepy boy did not want to go to sleep! Ben was showing off those big, beautiful eyes the entire time. Poor baby was so tired at the end of his photo session, he didn't know what to do with himself. I bet he zonked out in his Rock n Play the minute I left! Peggy and Matt are just glowing with joy over their new baby. He is such a happy boy, as long as he can chew on his tiny, little hands!!!
This year's group family photo session. 91 degrees, 100% humidity. The hottest day of the year, but the only day we could do it. It was so incredibly hot, we lasted less than 5 minutes. Everyone was completely soaked with sweat and beyond thrilled to be at the beach in their nice clothes. The older kids were mad they couldn't go in the water because it was closed due to harmful bacteria. Ewww! The babies decided to hate sand on this particular day and Tess screamed most of the time. (This is becoming a trend.) We took some really great photos on film, but I realized later that I had never loaded the film in the camera. So, life happens. This is our crazy life right now.
On a side note, doesn't Mary look amazing!!! I can't believe baby #3 is due in January!!
The happiest baby on the block! She really is...we live across the street and Adeline is always smiling and laughing! With her toothy grin and her little pixie hair, how can you not smile with her?! And after this session, Tess is not invited to any future sessions. We had the happiest baby and the crabbiest baby in the same house. Enjoy the many adorable faces of this angelic little one in her beautiful nursery!
Just wanting to remember this season in our lives. I love the kids ages right now. They are all young enough to still want to hang out with us and independent enough to play on their own. Sort of. There is a lot of fighting, arguing, and crying, but watching them all together is everything.
And I wish it would stay summer in Buffalo forever!
Baby Reid has arrived to join his big brother and sister! They were beyond excited to welcome their newest sibling. Let the craziness of zone coverage begin! This tiniest addition is the sweetest little boy with beautiful blue eyes and chubby little cheeks. So far, Reid is happiest swaddled up and sleeping while Luke and Addison play around him. Win for mom and dad! Congratulations to the Boyle's! You have such a lovely family!!
My sister-in-law and her beautiful family have been visiting from Houston. All of the cousins have been hanging out and having tons of summer fun. The kids have all celebrated birthdays, gone swimming, had sleepovers and went to the movies. We sure are going to miss these guys!
I'm currently loving newborn lifestyle photography and this is definitely one of my favorite sessions. Baby Hadley is a doll and was just 8 days in these photographs. She's usually the sleepiest little baby but she decided to wake up for us at the end of her photo session and show off her beautiful blue eyes! I love her downy blond hair and her fair little lashes! Sometimes, Hadley will pucker her lips and make a kissy face when someone gives her a smooch so Hunter tried and tried to make her do the kissy face for him. He tried in his nice clothes, stripped down to his undies, and then dressed up as Captain America, planting kisses on his new sister each time. It was really cute! By the end of our time together, the superhero in training was telling us, "I just love my baby sister." Haha! It took him a few minutes to warm up, but he got there!! Every superhero needs a sidekick!!
It's hard to believe a whole year has gone by already since I saw Caroline for her newborn session! It's crazy!! She is such a big girl now and daddy's little mini me. She looks just like him! Caroline was such a little ham from the moment I stepped into her home. She was smiling and laughing even though it was nearly bed time. Caroline is the sweetest little girl who loves to explore and quickly got over her fear of grass during this photo session. Who knew family photos could double as a sensory experience?! Baby girl has a mouth full of little teeth and the most adorable strawberry blonde little ringlets growing in! After showing me the beautiful gardens in the yard, singing nursery rhymes and dancing to Elmo, it was definitely time for bed and Caroline was ready to hang out with her bear and snuggle her blanky!! I think I might love those photos the most. She is sooo cute!!!
Film scans back from Spring Break! We took a couple of beach trips to Daytona and Cocoa. The boys loved playing in the waves and this was Tess's first time in the sand! She was less than thrilled when we sat her in the water. It's still a little chilly. The boys can't get enough of Daytona even though there is construction everywhere and no ramp to get the stroller down to the beach. That was a little bit of an adventure. They just like that there's an arcade and ice cream at the beach. I'm still trying to figure out what I'm doing with this film camera, but I do love the nostalgic feel of film and the pastel colors are my favorite! I still look at the back of the camera every time I take a picture even though there's nothing to look at. Waiting for the scans to come back after sending in a roll of film is definitely a fun surprise! :)
