“Each time of life has its own kind of love.”
— Leo Tolstoy

I love this quote. It reminds me so much of my couples when I shoot a maternity session. I have known many of my clients since I shot their engagement pictures, and to watch them grow and fall deeper and deeper in love through the years is just amazing. Now add the excitement of a new baby on the way and their love has evolved yet again to a new and beautiful place. I did not really know Amy and Andy way back when we were all just young and engaged but I have had the pleasure of getting to know them over the years and adopting them into the Byrd Family. These friends so close to being a new family of three gave me the chance to document this amazing time in their lives. I have never seen the Scotts more beautiful, glowing (well Amy not really you Andy), and in love. Check out just some of my favorites and see what you think!

Guys you better believe ABP is ready to love this new little baby with all I got! You guys enjoy this time before Baby Scott comes and enjoy being Amy and Andy before you officially become–Mom and Dad.

Love you all and thanks for a super fun session!

“Friends are the family we choose for ourselves.”
― Edna Buchanan

I love this quote! It is so true. When Tom and I moved to our neighborhood we adopted many new ‘family members’. This adorable family just happens to be one of those in our lives! This first section of this post is to share with you some adorable images from Mr. Jake’s newborn session back in December. Check out this sweet new face!

And now fast forward to his six month session! Look at how my boy has grown!

This timing of this blog worked out just perfect because today is actually Mr. Jakes’s fabulous big sisters Birthday! Happy Birthday my sweet sweet Taylor!

Thank you to the Fox Family for all of our fantastic photo sessions over the years but for also being such great friends who we love to call family! Mr. Jake I can’t wait to document the fun things you will do next!

“We are all born for love…It is the principle of existence, and its only end.”
— Benjamin Disraeli

Do you remember this gorgeous Maternity Session?

Well no surprise when Miss Madeline arrived she was equally as sweet and beautiful as Mom and Dad! Check out some of my favorites from Miss Madeline’s Newborn Session. Her hair makes me so happy! It reminds me of the jet black full hair my now blonde child had when she was born.  I just love it!

Believe it or not I am off this month to photograph her Three Month Session! Where does the time go! Miss Madeline I can hardly wait to get my hugs and photograph all the beautiful new things you are up to! See you all soon!

“I know of no other way to perfection but love.”
— St. Therese Of Lisieux

I first met the Magnuson family when they were still pregnant with Miss Parker.  The first time I met them I was touched by how loving and sweet they were and now that Miss Parker is here the love between this family just keeps on coming! I have had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family every three months for Miss Parker’s first year. This latest session is from her big girl Nine Month Session! Here are just a handful of my favorites!

Miss Parker I can hardly wait to see you and photograph you for your Amazing Twelve Month Session! You guys continue to show me that love only grows as your family does!

See you soon!

When I first got to meet my adorable Jack all I could think of was how he lit up an already bright and sunny day. His smile is contagious and full of life already at only three months!

Meet Jack!

I am so excited to be able to photograph and document this sweet boy’s first year. I can harldy wait for our six month session later this week! Here are some favorites from our three month session. I have a feeling Jack’s big smile is because of his pretty cool big sister and awesome Mom and Dad!

Excited to see you all soon for more photo fun! Bring on the smiles Jack!
