Welcome to the World, McKay Rose!

Sweet little McKay Rose . . . she is beautiful.  She is loved.  This little girl will be in amazing hands all of her childhood, and I can't wait to see her grow up.  Blythe and Nathaniel are doing so well handling the stresses of having a newborn at home, and you know this sweet, sweet face is a big part of why that is.

I love that she took a moment to smile for me!

Nathaniel looks so proud, and I can tell he is great support for Blythe!

And, Blythe, you are one gorgeous momma!  Your beauty shines from the inside and the outside, and holding your baby, you are absolutely glowing.

I love all of the beautiful decorations and clever organization that Blythe put into the nursery!  I should have gotten some tips from her when I was designing one myself.  Sheesh!

I don't think I could imagine a cuter, happier little family.

Congratulations, Blythe and Nathaniel!  It was truly an honor to document this time for you!

Sophia is Turning 2!!

I love this little family!  I love that little Sophia, whose 6 month photos and 1 year birthday party photos I took, is now turning a whole 2 years old!  I love that they have one more on the way, too!
  A little brother for Sophia is due in March.  :)

We had a fun time just playing around and capturing shots of Sophia just being a 2-year-old.
I absolutely love her eyelashes!

No photo session with a two-year-old can last long without a snack break!

These three spent a little time cuddling on the couch looking at scrapbook photos, and Sophia's little face just lit up at every page!

In her bedroom, she showed me how she puts coins in her piggy bank.  
Standing on tip-toes is a must, of course!

Who wouldn't want to jump up and down on Mom and Dad's bed?!

Time for a quick "nap" . . .

. . . right before going outside to play!

Mary had these really cute letters that spelled out "TWO" which she wanted Sophia to hold one at a time for a photo.  This kinda shows how cooperative Sophia was with that idea!  Haha!

But she looked adorable no matter what!

Thanks so much for having me out to capture these photos for you, Brett and Mary!  
Your little girl is a gem!  :)
