When thinking about families that are just engrained in the heart of my business, few reach as deep as the family these 3 wonderful people are a part of!  They mean so much to me and I am SO fond of their babies and watching them grow!  I began photographing Adam’s (dad in these photos) sisters second son in his newborn session, and have been with them for years– I look forward to seeing them every single year and now sometimes in between as their family grows and grows!

And this little babe is one of my absolute favorite babies– she is just the HAPPIEST little sweetheart on the planet.  This month’s session was particularly fun because I really got to see her start to INTERACT so so much.  Her parents are both very musical and MAN this girl can dance and groove to their tunes– it totally stole my heart.  Little Cecilia is a waving, bouncing, dancing, drooling ball of sweetness and I just absolutely adore her.  And watching Megan and Adam love on her, entertain her, interact with her? It is simply the best.  Sweet Cecilia has NO end of adoring fans in her extended family too, and I just know that she will be so loved and cared for in every moment of her life.  I can’t wait to see her again– except for that she will be 1 and time moves too fast!

Oh they are the sweetest!! Waving to daddy!

Adam and Megan, your full session is coming soon! I can’t WAIT to see you guys again!  To see Cecilia’s 4 month session click here and to see her newborn session, click here!

**Special thanks to my sweet friend Tara (of Tara Long Photography) for letting me use her beautiful studio space for these winter sessions!  She is an amazing local photographer with a huge heart for giving, and I am SO grateful for her friendship!
