Such a funny thing that my most anticipated session of this past year was also my last.  When I found out that my very best New York friend was pregnant with her sixth (no, that’s not a typo, she’s just amazing) baby, I immediately began looking forward to her newborn session.  Baby Maya is the sweetest, cutest, most perfect, and most loved little girl ever.  And we have the pictures to prove it:).

Maya, 6 days:






Mama made this blessing dress and big sister wore it at her newborn session as well:).



A family of 8?  Why yes, I can absolutely shoot that for you;).








And, she just so happened to come over on the loveliest, prettiest snow day of the year.
Disclaimer: Sweet Maya was only outside for 10 minutes, was properly dressed, and was nice and toasty from the tip of her button nose to her tiny little piggy toes the whole time:).



As hard as it can be to be not moving when your house is listed and you are trying to move, I am 100% so very grateful I was here to meet you Maya.  You already have such a big place in my heart for such a tiny person:).  XOXO!

What an amazing year 2012 has been! I was able to photograph so many former clients, and the very best part were the 11 former newborn clients who came back this year as big brothers or sisters. I feel so completely blessed to have been so supported here in New York. It will be hard to leave my amazing clients, but I hope to meet families just as wonderful very soon in Kansas City. It is both humbling and gratifying to look back on a year of work and remember all of the beautiful people I was able to spend the day or evening with.

In my hurry to get all of my tiny people photographed before I leave for Kansas City, I have been focusing on the shooting and the editing and the order taking, prepping, placing, checking, and packaging.  Now it’s time for some blogging:).

Ryan was a little dream.  Such a sweet, darling little guy and absolutely gorgeous.

Three years ago, I photographed darling baby Ernesto.  Now, he is a great big three-year old with the best birthday present ever–a baby brother!  I guess Dominic is already following in his big brother’s footsteps, starting with the very same birthday.  I could not get enough of his squishy cheeks and perfect little fauxhawk.

Eye contact and a smile, are you kidding me?  He was just perfect:).
