Zoey | 9 Months

IMG_9997 sug

Remember Zoey from her 3month and 6month photos?

Well she's back and better than ever. Zoey's momma made the tutu (not to shabby for a first-time crafter!).

I love how every photoshoot has it's own look and light. All Zoey's pictures have this aqua jewel tone to them--so pretty.

Lucky for us Zoey isn't quite crawling so she just sat there and looked adorable.

Zoey's mom is so faithful about her children's milestone pictures--props to her.

The week Zoey was born was bittersweet for the family; her great grandma passed away and a few days later Zoey came into the world. So it was a sweet little touch for momma to bring along Grandma's jewelry for the photoshoot. Makes it more personal and memorable.

Maybe ballet is in her future? Looks like it--

Keep on smiling, Zoey girl. Can't wait to see your 1 yr photos!

Lily | Newborn

Of course I'm partial to little girls with flower names, but this newborn was so sweet and perfect during her photoshoot.

We sent Grandma to the store to get some fresh lily flowers.

Grandma also came home with a head of cabbage and the idea that we should put the baby in the center to show how little she is (she was a preemie weighing in at 5 lbs).

At first I wasn't so sure--I'm not trying to push Anne Geddes out of her slot as #1 creative newborn poser...

...but Lily totally rocked the photoshoot and was a true model. I think she's adorable enough to sell a burlap sack to Nordstroms--so a head of cabbage was no problem for her!

While I was editing her photos, I kept myself entertained by thinking of cheesy birth announcements to go along with her cabbage patch theme. How 'bout this one:

See how little she is compared to these books?

This was a fun photoshoot. Lily is cousins with Brooklyn. So all the aunties were there, and one of the aunties had some studio lighting she just bought off eBay. We set it up and gave it a go--here's a pull back shot. Maybe I do have studio photography in my future someday?

(notice how teeny Lily is on the ottoman!)

Here's a cute little feller, Mr. Charlie.

His mom and I were pregnant at the same time--our babies are 2 days apart.

Charlie was SO obsessed with looking at all the cars driving by, it was pretty funny.

It was hard to get him to look at the camera because he wanted to see all the trucks and school buses zip down the street during rush hour.

Ah, the balloons. Let's just say there was actually 4 balloons to start out with and we were left with only 1.

What a little stud. Maybe him and Kensington will date in 16 yrs.
I mean 25 yrs---when she's allowed to date.

Carmella Riley | 2 Months

IMG_8090 clone bw

This is my newest niece, who I met last week for spring break. She's 2 months old. We snapped some pictures while she was trying to fall asleep. She's wearing a lace romper similar to Kensington's but my crafty sister-in-law made it out of a onesie. Cute huh?

IMG_8033 wm

And I happened to have Kensington's headband in my camera bag...voila...photoshoot! Carmella and Kensington are 10 months apart which won't be that big of a difference in a few years, but wow look at what a difference 10 months makes now.

IMG_8047 bw wm

Carmella has her daddy's dark Italian complexion, hair, and eyes. Have you ever seen such long eyelashes on a baby? So pretty.

I kept putting her hands down, and she was determined to sleep with them UP like this:

PS: email me if you want to buy a lace romper, I've got a group order going on for a lot cheaper than Etsy if I get it worked out. Variety of colors available. They come as a stretchy one-size-fits-all spandex type of thing. They look cute under tutus and would be a fun birthday gift. They aren't just for photoshoots---why not let your baby look delicious everyday this summer? Eye candy for you.

PPS: Hope you aren't sick of the lacey frills yet because next week we have a little 9 month old coming your way, and guess what her momma ordered?!?
