I am not going to lie, I am a sucker for baby boys this year. Maybe it is my own little guy being in my life, maybe it is the slew of precious baby boys I have had the pleasure of pointing my camera at this year. It could be a lot of things, but this boy topped it all off. Meet little Shawn:

Don’t you want to just smooch him?! Shawn belongs to the lovely Erin featured on this very blog just a few short weeks ago. He is one lucky and loved baby. And so cute! He was so very good for me. I have lots of favorites to show you, so here goes…

Erin was very close to her grandmother who passed recently, to honor her we used this absolutely beautiful quilt for the session. I am so in love with this quilt I am SO very glad she suggested it.

Sweet baby boy was clearly comfortable on the quilt too.

We even got our proud papa down on the quilt action. These two boys are so sweet together.

Oh that smile! really Shawn was so good for me.

He was so sweet and sleepy.

Smoochable

Someone is very loved by his mama as well clearly.

This one might be my favorite.  He was so cute smiling up at mama.

The whole family is just adorable.

Ok maybe this one is my favorite, either way this family is cute.

Erin thanks again for having me out to meet your little guy. He is perfection! I had a great time seeing you all again. I hope you are all settling in and getting a bit more sleep! I will have the whole gallery for you very soon. I can not help but work on this cute little guy! To use up some time how about we throw down a blog challenge? If you can get 25 people to comment on this little blog post I will throw in a darling set of mini brag books. Perfect for showing off a certain sweet baby!

6 months ago she was a sweet, sleepy, chubby newborn. Now she is a cute, chubby, silly baby. Oh my I love watching them grow! Jocelyn and family are back, and wonderful as ever. We had a great time chatting, playing trains, and laughing about baby poop. Jocy was once again super cute for me. Even throwing some smiles my way. It was my pleasure photographing her, and her ultra cool big brother.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Gah the cuteness!

Big brother was also charming can you tell!

They are SO cute together.

:)

Is there anything more fun than airplane rides with daddy?

The whole lovely family.

Oh those eyes, just beautiful.

Her little bitten lip move here was killing me.

In between eating some yummy toes she shot me some smiles. SO WORTH IT.

:)

And one more of super cool big brother. Such a hansom little man.

And one last shot of the silly girl. She is quite the accomplished raspberry blower!

Kim & Seth thanks for meeting me downtown at the studio. I had a great time catching up with all of you. Your kids are SO over the top cute. I just adored photographing them again. I can’t wait to see what thus summer brings with her turning one! I will have the whole gallery for you very soon. How about we throw down another comment challenge. If you all can get 30 comments on the blog I will throw in another wallet brag book for the set!

Like I said earlier I love the process of designing books. Telling the story of a new baby, family or even a wedding. Wedding Albums are usually larger and more intense than a newborn or family book. Just the same I adore the process. Story telling is a passion, or obsession, or a little of both for me!

Do you want to see a preview of one of my most recent albums?

Here is one of Julie & Kris:

They got married at the incredibly beautiful Zenith Vineyards outside of Salem. The floral & event design was done by Julie’s incredibly talented friends, and the food (omg the food!) was provided by Vibrant Table. For real, if you have not booked a wedding caterer call them today, they are amazing! Going off to print soon! I can not wait to have this baby in my hands!

Another change in 2011 are some new additions to the portrait books I offer. I have always offered and LOVED custom designed coffee table books. From family photos to new additions, I love the idea of photos in book form. Well this year things are getting a little bit more creative. After adding some funky & cute designs to my mini wallet books last year I did the same to the coffee table books. They will still be offered in simple and clean designs, but I am also adding some cute more whimsical designs to the mix.

Here is a newborn book I just put together.

Cute right?!

More to come on that front!
