Baby Maya

I have not forgotten about you!! I am still working on getting caught up:) The plan when I went to Atlanta 3 weeks ago was that I would stay with Pam & Dev because Maya was not due until this past weekend (I was actually to try to get some maternity shots of Pam), so me staying would be no big deal. Well little Maya decided that it was time to come 3 weeks early! After talking to Pam & Dev, we all decided that I would stay with them anyway and I am glad I did. Not only did I get to capture this precious little baby’s first days home…I got to babysit the dog when she headed back to the hospital for her first visit. It was a false alarm but you know the saying, better safe than sorry. So as Pam & Dev headed out the door to the hospital, Roxy (their first baby- a yorkie) and I had a photo shoot. LOL Congratulations to Pam & Dev! Maya is absolutely beautiful and I know you two are going to be fantastic parents!

Pictures of Maya’s first bath:)

She loved it…can’t you tell;)

Poor Roxy sat on the couch most of the night waiting for Pam & dev to return home.

Keaton – 8 months

Two weeks ago I met up with Julie and her adorable daughter Keaton to take Keaton’s 8 month pictures. We went to UT Gardens and then headed downtown for some urban baby shots;) I had lot of fun catching up with Julie and Keaton…they have a blog (www.missinglinkfam.blogspot.com) that I follow so that I can keep up with all things Keaton and Link but there is nothing better than some face to face time:) Thanks Julie and Keaton for getting up at the crack of dawn…and for bringing me chocolate chip muffins! Enjoy!

This is one of the few shots I got where Keaton is actually looking at me…most of the time she is looking at her momma:)

Keaton loves when her mom swings her like this…she was belly laughing:)

Hi Mr. Bear, nice to meet you…

now get out of my chair. LOL

This poor innocent child has no idea what is coming for her…

freezing cold water at 9am on a Sunday morning.  It seemed like a good idea at the time.

She forgave us;)

And then she modeled for us:)

I will call this picture high noon. I wish I had better photoshop skills…I would have pasted a tumbleweed into this picture. LOL

Peek a boo!

Tired baby! Julie’s mother made the sock monkey outfit that Keaton is wearing in these pictures…she also made the blue smocked dress that Keaton is wearing in the purple chair in the beginning of the post. That dress was actually Julie’s when she was a baby. Her mother is so crafty!! And I love that she saved things from 30 years ago for Julie’s children!

OK, I guess she really is tired. We decided to call it a wrap after this picture. Modeling is hard work!

Again, she forgave me:) Look at that sweet little face!

I went to Kaylee’s house while I was in Atlanta to take her newborn/family pictures. I was supposed to come a week earlier but had to postpone my trip due to my children being sick. In the meantime, Kaylee was born…on 8-8-08! As many of you know, the number 8 is considered to be a very lucky number in Chinese culture. If 8 really is lucky, this is one VERY lucky family  because all of their birthdays are on the 8th day of their birth month…even their cat!!

I had such a great time photographing this family. Mike and Rachel have such a genuine love for each other and I am absolutely certain that love will be shared with Kaylee…to the cat’s dismay. LOL Thank you for your patience Rachel and Mike and Congratulations on your new little bundle of joy… she is a beauty:)

(Kaylee’s grandmother bought her that huge pig…isn’t it awesome. I wanted to take it home with me. Kaylee has lots of pigs in her room…so I took lots of pictures of her piggies.)

I think this may be my favorite picture from the entire shoot. So sweet!

I will call this one…pigs on pig.

This rocking chair used to belong to Rachel’s grandmother.

These shoes were Rachel’s when she was a baby. I love that Rachel’s mom saved all of these things for when Rachel had children.

A little smile from Kaylee:)

Kaylee’s grandma also bought Kaylee her first baseball/softball glove:)

I wanted to do something special for Kaylee’s birthday – so I made her a shirt:) I was born on 8-8-08 and all I got was this lousy shirt!

Addison is 1!!


I woke up VERY early Saturday morning to head over to Addison’s house in Atlanta to take her 1 year pictures, while she was in a good mood. While she was in a good mood for most of the shoot we did hit a few rough patches…it was pretty hot outside and we started to enter lunch and nap time…so by the time we wrapped things up she was definitely over me having the camera in her face:)

Each time I go on a shoot I learn at least 1 new thing…my lesson this time…do not ever try to pose a 1 year old. They don’t like sitting still and they don’t like being told what to do. You would think I would know this after having 3 children of my own. LOL

Enjoy and Happy Birthday Addison!

Getting dressed with mom.

Making a run for it…this chick did not want to get dressed.

Playing with texture. Becky requested a picture of the 3 of them walking from behind:)

A flower from daddy, how sweet:)

It was impossible mission trying to get her to look right at me..finally got it…but she is giving me the stone face. No love for Jessi. LOL

Addison started rubbing her eyes at this point…so we figured it was nap time. Not so much. The next few pictures were taken after we returned to her home to get her ready for a nap.

She doesn’t look very tired to me either!

Addison read some books, played peek a boo and then dressed up for me:)

She also opened her new baby doll- “Hi, baby nice to meet you. My name is Addison and I love you…

but now I must eat your face. HA!

Snuggle time with mom and the new baby doll.

This is how we wrapped things up…with a big smile for dad:) Thank you Becky & James for asking me to take Addison’s 1 year pictures, I had a great time hanging out with both of you…and of course with Addison too:)

I am much farther behind than I thought I would be. Although, I think I may have set my goals a little too high…3 baby shoots blogged within 1 week of taking the pictures with 3 kids and a full time job was just not a realistic goal:( So, in order to keep my word that I would have pictures posted by the end of the week, I will do back to back mini blogs of Maya and Kaylee. I still have alot of pictures of both girls to finish up but wanted to give an extended sneak peek of their pictures:) Rachel, Mike, Pam & Dev – thank you for your patience!

I went to Atlanta this weekend to photograph 3 beautiful little girls.  Kaylee was born on the 8th, Addison just turned 1 on the 9th, and Maya was born on the 13th.  Kaylee was due on the 9th but was born a day early. Maya was due in September but was born 3 weeks early! I was supposed to go to Atlanta last weekend to take Addison’s 1 year pictures but decided to stay home since my children were sick. I was upset that I missed Addison’s birthday but in the meantime, Kaylee and Maya were born, so I was able to get shots of all three of them in the same weekend.  So it all worked out in the end. A big Congratulations to Rachel, Mike, Pam & Dev on the birth of your little girls and a big Happy Birthday to Addison!!


Mike, Kaylee & Rachel
