Sweet little baldies, like this little man, make me sigh. He is just a perfect tiny, little person.  I am continually amazed, each time I get to work with a newborn, at how each baby is so unique and yet so perfect.  It was great working with him and his entourage, yesterday.  I feel honored to have had so many people come for the session.  It was a long one, but the family stuck with it and quietly cheered on their littlest addition.

These two one year olds came to visit me just before we got a visit from Hurricane Irene.  They were so cute crawling all around and wobbling on unsteady legs.   I hope they had a great birthday party yesterday, despite the hurricane.

I was happy to meet this sweet family’s newest member last night.  Sweet little man is such a perfect addition to this already great family.  He seems to go with the flow and seems to be a happy boy.  We were blessed with good weather and a beautiful setting sun.  Take a look at a few of the photos we got last night.

Exciting times are ahead for this sweet family.  They are in the process of packing up and moving clear across the country to the west coast.  I will be sad to see them go, but so happy for the opportunities God is going to open up for them.  I was honored to have them call me one last time before they move.  Here are a few of the photos we took yesterday.

This sweet little man is 9 months old already.  He had a rough day yesterday when we had our session.  Having to be woken from his nap for our session didn’t make things start out smoothly.  Within a short while, he was happy again.  We had to race to beat the sun.  Sweet little man’s mom and dad are going to be getting married soon.  Don’t they make the sweetest couple!?
