Welcome to the world, Miss Adallyn Riley! 

Soooo, first off: I definitely do not consider myself a newborn photographer AT ALL (and I give MAJOR props to those that are!), but my friends had this beautiful baby and we just had to give it a shot! :)  This was my VERY first newborn shoot, and I'll be honest - it was much harder than it looks! 

Miss Adallyn is super adorable, but she did not want to cooperate with us. Plus, I truly believe that it's gotta be much easier to do if you are a full=timer and have a studio that you can keep good and warm. Miss Adallyn & her parents had a super busy first couple of weeks, so we just decided to try this one evening after I got off work at their house. Little Addy was officially two weeks old when these photos were taken. :) 

Once we finally got her calmed down a little, we were finally able to catch a few good photos (as long as we didn't move her, lol!) Annnnd, truthfully, they turned out SO much better than I had thought they would. (I'm not the best, and my confidence level is pretty low at times.) But Addy is sooo cute and she just made these photos PERFECT. 

I'm sure I'll try another one one of these days.. and I'm sure it gets MUCH easier with tons of practice :)  but, I don't think I'll ever 'specialize' in newborn photography unless I'm fortunate enough to have my own studio one day. 

Now, take a look at just how adorable she is......

You've got a friend in me....

If you've noticed, you'll probably recognize these girls as I've done family photos for both Brittany and Sloan in the past couple of months. They had contacted me a while back and wanted me to do some photos of the babies together since they're really good friends and the kids are around the same age. Sloan has an absolutely adorable baby boy and Brittany has a super sweet baby girl that I've grown to love. They are PRECIOUS.

So, a couple of weeks ago we finally met up to do the kid's photos as well as some 'Mommy and Me' photos for Sloan. The sweet babes were perfect and I very much enjoyed doing it for them. It was a lot of fun and we all shared some laughs. I'm pretty sure I can classify these photos as my favorites right now. They just turned out so good! :)

I have a pretty strong feeling that these two sweet kids are going to grow up to be the best of friends. I hope Sloan and Brittany will continue to come back to me for photos so I can watch them grow up. They are going to have so much fun together.

A couple of weeks ago I met up with Brittany to do a family shoot. Unfortunately things didn't go as planned at the time, so we ended up just doing a quick little session with just her and her little 4 month old daughter. Who, by the way, is just absolutely PRECIOUS.

Considering the afternoon was extremely muggy and hot, her sweet baby girl did amazing and I got some sweet photos of the two of them. I tried to do it as quick as I could, while getting as many photos as I could, so that she could get her sweet girl out of the heat and back home!

We'll be doing her rescheduled family session soon... so keep an eye out for more photos of this precious family in a few weeks!
