I just finished up with this little guy’s one year photo session, so I figure I’d better get some photos from his previous session up on the blog.  Evan came to my studio for his “sitting” milestone photos, just shy of 8 months old.  This was the first time I had met him since he’s […]

Are you ready to meet one of the cutest babies ever!?!  This is Moses.  He was a month old when he came in for his newborn session this past fall.  Typically I like to photograph newborn babies when they are 2 weeks old or younger, because babies tend to sleep better and curl up better […]
