the fish family

May 30, 2014

i have absolutely loved getting to capture this little, growing family-

first at their maternity session last fall, then for sweet isla quinn’s newborn session….

i can’t believe she is already almost six months old!

this family is not only beautiful, but also incredibly sweet, and it is precious to see how they love their baby girl.

this baby girl is so very special to me.

i have had the incredible opportunity to photograph so much of her little life- from her maternity session, to being present at her birth, meeting her big sister for the first time, her newborn session, and her seven month session.

 (we’ve also had a fun monthly project happening that i can’t wait to share!)

she may be the most well-documented baby ever.

we had to do something really fun for her one year session, so we headed down to the beach with lots of cute props. her mommy even made some adorable banners to use.

while miss mayson is normally quite the little smiley baby, she decided she was not too happy about being at the beach.  or taking pictures.

but regardless, we still got some beautiful pictures of this lovely baby girl.

mayson, i can’t even believe you are turning one.

you are so special and so very loved, little one.mayson blog007 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog004 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog005 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog006 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog013 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog008 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog010 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog012 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog014 784x1024 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog015 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog011 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog009 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog002 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog003 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog001 mayson lynn :: one year old mayson blog016 mayson lynn :: one year old

the frazier family

June 13, 2013

a few weeks ago, our family gathered for a huge family reunion.

it was so fun getting to see cousins, aunts, and uncles that we don’t see very often.

my favorite thing was having my ‘little’ brother and his family come down for the week.

little macie had never been to the beach before, so we had a fun morning capturing her exploring the sand, avoiding the waves, and chasing the birds.
