Newborn babies (especially little boys named Jacob!) are the sweetest, little things to grace this earth.  I love how they scrunch their face in protest one minute but then smile in their sleep the next.  And there's really nothing better than getting to spend time with a sweet little boy like this one on a rainy Saturday morning!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star...Carli turned one!  And had a little bash to celebrate.  She's pretty much the most easy-going kid I've ever met and is already chasing after the big kids like it's no big deal.  And can we talk about that white canvas tent the kids were playing in?  So neat!  I think I may have to get one for our sunroom...

Little girls dressed in pink, is there anything sweeter?  These two little girls were a bundle of fun at their session - the look on the older sister's face when I said she could jump on the bed, just this once?  Priceless.

This session also marks the first time I've tried my hand at making flower crowns - they came out so sweet and surprisingly were relatively easy to make!  I did opt for fake flowers, so these little girls could enjoy them even after our session.

ONE!  How could I possibly have a ONE year old?  It's just crazy I tell you.  But here he is, walking, talking and ready to attack his smash cake.  I planned a family party full of whales, goldfish and plenty of blue and green.  With little sand pails full of treats for him to give his little friends.  He loved every moment - having all his favorite people in one room.  This kid is just so blessed.
