Expecting: Jessica and Steve

Jessica and I have been friends since our "singlehood" days of martini happy hours and late-night dance parties.  Now she and her husband are expecting their first little one, and I couldn't be happier for them!  I met Jessica and Steve over at the Mint Museum for a maternity session.  They are due at the end of October and can't wait to welcome their little boy into the world.   Here's the preview.  (Click on an image to see larger.)

There is a crazy bamboo sculpture on display at the museum.  Not sure what it's supposed to be, but it looked like a cross between a corn field and a giant bird's nest.  We couldn't resist taking a few photographs.

This cute clothesline decorated Jessica's baby shower so I asked her to bring it along.  Love those tiny little onesies and socks!

Back to School

This morning I had the pleasure of photographing my friend Carol's two beautiful kids, Healey and Hunter.  Healey is starting high school this year, and Hunter is in 5th grade.  Carol is a dear friend and my "Mom Idol" - she is raising two smart, well-adjusted, happy and did I mention beautiful children, all while balancing a successful career and keeping a lovely home.  I should give her husband Davis some credit too. They are both great parents!  Here's a sneak preview of our shoot.  Thanks for such a fun morning Healey and Hunter.  I wish you both great adventures and success this year!

I Heart Faces: Beautiful Eyes

Fresh from a long vacation in the mountains, I am back just in time to enter one of my favorite photos in this week's I Heart Faces photo challenge.

This is my daughter Sarah Beth at age 1.  She has the most beautiful eyes and the longest eyelashes I've ever seen.  We have this print hanging on our bedroom wall and it makes me smile every time I pass by those baby blues and chubby little cheeks. 

Head over to I Heart Faces to see more beautiful eyes and amazing photographs.
