Seriously, these babies that have been coming to visit me lately are making me even more impatient to meet my own little one in just a few short months.  I am not sure they come any more handsome than baby Bruce, who just blew me away with his darling mouth, long lashes and beautiful dark hair.  I was so sad to hand him back to mom and dad at the end of the session, but simply overjoyed for them to start on this indescribable journey of parenthood.  He is perfection.

Baby Bruce, 9 days:




Thank you for coming so far to spend the day with me–it was an absolute pleasure to meet you!

Perhaps baby Braden knew just how long his mommy, daddy and big sister had been waiting for him.  Perhaps he simply knew how loved he already was by so many people.  Perhaps that’s why he decided to show up more than 6 weeks early.  Whatever the reason, he is here and he is the sweetest little thing ever.  What a journey he’s had already in his first 38 days–he’s not even due to arrive for another 9.  What a tiny miracle.

Baby Braden, 5.5 weeks:





Thank you, Braden, for coming over today and reminding just what a miracle each new life is.

That’s what both I and baby Zoey were yesterday–well, and her gorgeous parents too, for that matter.  There is just something about the privilege of seeing a wonderful couple grow into parenthood, completely smitten with their new little one, that warms my very soul.  Zoey, at just a few days old, has already brought so much joy to so many people–and I think she must be able to tell how very much she is loved.  I adored every minute of her session:).

Zoey Amy, 5 days:







Jason and April, just wonderful to see you two again.  Zoey, you are simply amazing!


GIRL!!!!!  Let the insanity begin (or rather continue!)!!!



Baby Gap, here I come;).

So I am trying to be better this time around at documenting the progression of this pregnancy.  Plus, it’s so funny when you are still pretty early in pregnancy and you feel like a house already and then you see a picture and think, “Oh, I am not even a condo yet, maybe just a pup tent.”  When I was 11 weeks along, I just happened to be in the pediatrician’s office and just happened to pick up a magazine which just happened to have a small blurb about how at 11 weeks your baby is about the size of a large lime.  Well, that was just too fun, so we started calling the baby “Baby Lime.”  After a week or two, we decided Baby Lime must have grown to at least lemon-size, so we named the baby “Lemonhead.”  And it stuck.  Because, really, who doesn’t want to give birth to something with a head the size of a lemon.  Wishful thinking, I know, but it beats the other fruit analogies coming up in the not too distant future (watermelon, anyone?).

On a side note, I have very limited openings for the rest of the year at this point.  I have one session available in May, one in June and one in late July.  I have a crazy busy summer of travel coming up and then a baby of my own to cuddle.  If you are due late September through December, feel free to contact me and I will put you on a waiting list for my light postpartum work load:).

So, without further ado, Baby Lemonhead at 17 and 19 weeks gestational age:



We are hoping it will only be two more days until we know if it’s a boy lemon or a girl lemon–wish us luck!
