Mommy and Me Session with Alex and Peyton

When Peyton turns ONE, I will present her Mommy and Daddy with a book of pictures from her first year. I've been photographing her at each month birthday to document her development and we have gotten some amazing shots with this little beauty. Her newest trick is "Pat-a-Cake", so adorable!
Here is her 9 month session, and this time she invited her Mommy along. 
Enjoy the gorgeousness of these two in a beautiful setting, The Stepping Stone Museum.

The Deckers

When I head out to photograph a family I have never met, it can make me a little nervous. Will I make a good impression? Will the children warm up to me and cooperate? Will my vision for the session be fulfilled? Basically I just want everyone to have a positive experience that also produces a quality end product.

On Friday I met the Decker family. Rene contacted me after seeing my Facebook page on a friends list of "likes". What a sweet family, and what beautiful little girls! I loved meeting them and I think we had a great time together! The oldest, Cameron, aged 8, literally hummed the entire evening. If you know me at all, you know that was a thrill since I am a singer and music addict! I felt a connection right away! Little 5 year old Rielly was happy and so cooperative. I could tell that Mom and Dad have nurtured these girls and that they have created a warm and loving atmosphere in thier home and family relationships.
What a blessing! 

So, here are the images from our evening together.
I love my job and I love meeting lovely families like the Deckers. Hoping they become repeat clients!
