Baby Ballerina….

This shoot was just WAAAAYYY too fun!!! I’ve mentioned in a past blog post that this baby is particularly special because her mother is an amazing woman that I grew up with.  I don’t even know where the time has gone, that we are now at a point in our lives where many of us are having children of our own.  I hope to enjoy parenthood someday as much as this beautiful mama does.  When I found out that we were working with a tutu for this shoot I could not be more excited.  One of my favorite photos of ALL time is Marilyn Monroe in a ballerina tutu.  Though this beautiful baby is much younger than the iconic Marilyn, I couldn’t help but want to bring out the same feeling in this little girls photos.  After all, what little girl doesn’t think about being a beautiful ballerina at some point?!?!  Whether you’re the next Marilyn, or a beautiful little girl just beginning your life in this world, you can’t help but LOVE the tutu….  SO!!! Without further adieu… The Marilyn photo that inspired me:


And our PERFECT baby ballerina…..


As you can see, this little cutie is a natural in front of the camera….. just like the beautiful, iconic Marilyn Monroe.  I absolutely cannot wait to see her grow into an adorable toddler, then kid and eventually into the stunning woman she’s destined to be.  Until then…..

Some More Baby Love….

I just can’t get enough of this amazing baby shower, so I feel compelled to share a few more of my favorites from this wonderful day!

Here are a few more of this beautiful mama to be that I just cannot get enough of! She is literally just glowing!


And how cute is this little one?!??!? You can’t help but want to just squeeze her!  She’s a reminder of the wonderful times to come with baby Olivia….

And I just couldn’t resist throwing in another one showing the attention to detail that Michele took to ensure her guests really enjoyed the day….

And finally….. a few of my favorite guest photos…..


While I’m always sad when an event comes to an end, I’m just elated at what the future holds for Michele.  Her friends and family could not be happier to celebrate the arrival of little Olivia.  I am SO looking forward at watching this beautiful family grow through the lens…..

Baby Love…

OH…… Where do I begin with this one?  I’ve known this beautiful mama for YEARS! So, when she asked me to shoot her baby shower, I was beyond honored and excited.  There is something so humbling when your friends ask you to document their most precious, important life moments.  This is the first entry of two, but I was just so excited to share some of my favorites, I couldn’t wait another moment!  Here’s a preview of a day full of….. “Baby Love!”

Every last detail had been thought of from favors, to flowers, to colors, to food and refreshments…. it was no less than perfection at every turn!

These next photos are my favorite from the entire day…. Michele looks just radiant, glowing and happy and it shines through in every photo.  I really felt that these photos really captured the pure happiness and joy of this day….. LOVE!

And last but, certainly not least….. I love this generation photo…. I can’t wait until baby Olivia gets here so we can see her beautiful, smiling face as she becomes the 4th generation lady to join this amazing family!
