Devan arrived with his mom Justine for her maternity session. He was saying on his way in that he was only going to be in a couple of pictures..... Obviously he changed his mind! Every time mom stepped out of the studio for an outfit change, Devan stepped in front of the camera with an idea for a shoot of his own. He is an awesome kid and has a great personality. I could totally see him in an ad for Abercrombe. Maybe in a few years.... 

One Hot Mama

I think that pregnancy is so beautiful, and expectant mom Justine really makes it look hot! She is a hairstylist, so of course she looked amazing and stylish. Her son Devan was also adorable and handsome and by no means shy in front of the camera. We had a little session of his own everytime Justine changed outfits. It was hilarious. The playfulness of the top two images really makes me love this family. I cannot wait to meet Devan's little sister!

Back to Work, if I can call it that....

We are back to work around here, and life could not be better. We are very blessed to have amazing clients who understand that occasionally nusing a newborn trumps taking a portrait, and that things may be a little bit noisier around here for a while! I have learned to be more patient and appreciate the quiet times, and really get to know the amazing parents who visit us. (I love that our son Austin calls our clients, our 'Guests'.)

The last few weeks we have had more newborn sessions than any previous month of our business. I will be posting them here this weekend, and thought I would start with this little disclaimer about our life right now -
