Leah's 1st Communion - Quad Cities Special Event Photographer

Our gorgeous niece, Leah has a very special weekend ahead of her...1st Communion!

I feel like she was born just yesterday!  She has grown up to be the sweetest, kindest, smartest little 8 year old and I am so proud of her!

Last night was her dress rehearsal and so I got to spend some time with her doing her hair and then we went out and took photographs to commemorate this special time...

I am blessed to get to spend lots of time with her, but it's nice when it's a bit more one on one now and again.

And my camera loves this beauty!

She gets more beautiful with every day...she has really started looking so grown up lately!

A special bracelet for her special weekend!

We love you, Leah!  You are such an amazing and beautiful girl and are so incredibly proud of you!

Hudson is 3 months - Quad Cities Baby Photographer

Man, Sweet Hudson is just too much!  Love him!
I can't believe how much he's grown since that day I was able to photograph him just minutes old.
And I didn't think he could possibly get any cuter...I was wrong! :)

I mean, those lips, those cheeks, those eyes!

He is being molded into the biggest Atlanta Braves fan around!

Love him!

And he is adored by so many...smothered in Mama kisses all the time! :)

It has been so fun photographing Hudson from the day he was born, until now.  Can't wait to have this beautiful child in front of my lens for many years to come!

Patrick - Quad Cities Children Photographer

 I was so excited when I finally got to photograph Patrick for his 1 year portraits!  We had t reschedule several times due to the winter dragging on much longer than we expected it would!

He was definitely worth the wait!!!

He may only be one, but he is a professional walker...he started walking at 8 months!
He's a prodigy, I tell ya! :)
We walked all over the place and he pointed in awe at all of the trucks, the ducks, and anything else exciting.

And he is serious.  He never whined or cried, but he only handed out a few fleeting smiles.  He doesn't have to smile for my camera to love him though...those eyes, those cheeks, that face.  Eek!

When he did hand out a smile, I was ready to capture it!

He mostly just loved toddling around the park being a 1  year old...amazed at everything, interested in showing his mama all that he saw and exploring.  It was a fun session and I welcomed the leisure time I got to spend with this adorable boy and his mommy in the park.

And my favorite shots...the Mommy Love shots!

Thank you, Jelene for allowing me to photograph your beautiful boy!  It was so great to finally meet the both of you!
