Sawyer and a really long hat

Babies. I love em. Last week I got to visit this little guy named Sawyer at his home. And what a cutie he is! Sorry, maybe that wasn't a manly enough statement for all those guys in his family... but he really is adorable! That hair! Seriously, people pay good money for long, thick hair, so this little guy's got it goin on.
And then there's that hat... it was custom made for my sessions by Debbie Kuhn... soon to be on! Well, at least that's what I think she should do. If you would like one of her darling hats custom made for you or a friend, let me know and I can give you her number! :)

About how I got these pictures...
Most of these images are done by a window with that warm sunshine lighting Sawyer's face up. I just think it's amazing to play with the shadows, the light hitting only half the face. It adds so much more interest, I think. Yes, I tote along a nice flash setup, but I never seem to use it that much. It's kinda scary for a newborn!

The Wade's!

How fun this was! I got to take pictures of not only a beautiful, sleepy little girl... but also her 4 older siblings, too! What I liked best was trying to capture everyone just being normal, not overly posed, not totally planned. I know Missy was worried about getting them to all look at me at just the right time, but one of my FAV shots is the one on the couch - Kids looking every direction, one slithering away... it's just real. it's just who they are, and I love it.

By the way, I'm running a SPECIAL where YOU can help Missy and Ryan earn FREE prints!
Just leave a comment - that's it. Say you've been here, TWEET about my page... "Like" the video that's posted on Facebook... Spread the word. I count it all up and the more comments, the more stuff they get!!

Yes, I'm shamelessly trying to get out the word - I love what I do, I'm good at it, and I want to do more! Just Facebook or email me and we can set up a time for your session, too! Don't wait too long - they really do change so fast!
