little aidan is just weeks away from his arrival,

and he is already a lucky little guy.

his parents are absolutely incredible people whose love for one another just radiates from them.

i felt so blessed to spend an evening with them, capturing this time in their lives as they anticipate their sweet baby.

remember this beautiful family’s maternity session?

sweet henry arrived just a few weeks later,

weighing in at nine pounds six ounces and a whole lot of cuteness.

i had the sweet opportunity to peek in on this family in their everyday life as a family of four.

little henry… you have no idea how lucky you are to be a part of this incredible family.

i have no doubt you will be just as awesome.

this beautiful baby girl first came to me for her newborn portraits eight months ago.

it is such a privilege to capture her growth…i last saw her at her for valentine portraits in february-

now she is sitting up like such a big girl!

miss sophia was not interested in giving us many smiles for her pictures,

but was very proud to show off her cute little tongue icon smile sophia josefine :: eight months old

i first met (and fell in love with) little lyla at her one-year-old cake smash session.

just weeks after her session, her parents found out she needed to wear glasses,

and decided they needed some pictures to capture how absolutely precious and adorable she is in them.

i mean, seriously… could she BE any cuter?

and she is just as sweet and she is beautiful.

so basically- baby perfection.

i love, love, love it when clients have a vision for their session.

it’s always so fun to try something new!

so when rachel said she wanted to do a 50′s themed session, i was all in.

i had a blast with this great little family- we started at the cutest little diner in old town orange called the old towne diner.

then we headed down to the circle so little miss annabelle could explore and play.

 i think this session proves you don’t have to have everyone smiling at the camera to capture a great family photo.

it seems like just yesterday little conrad was in my studio for his four month session.

now he is almost one year old!

conrad is still just as cute, but has definitely become a busy little guy.  he kept us moving the whole time!

i absolutely love getting to watch these sweet babies grow up.

it’s always so much fun to watch these sweet babes try their very first cake.

for many of them, it’s their first introduction to sugar!

while some babies dig right in, others aren’t always in love with their first cake.

little conrad decided he wasn’t much of a fan and quickly wanted to be done with the whole thing.

i have a feeling he’ll come around soon icon smile conrad kristopher :: one year old {and a cake smash!}

i love this family.

they are fun. generous. thoughtful…. all around amazing people.

and they have a new baby boy due any day now!

what a privilege to capture the joy they have for one another as they anticipate little henry’s arrival.
