Jaxson is 6 months old!

August 25, 2011 | 1 Comment

Jaxson is so freaking adorable that it’s hard to put into words.  I could go look on Thesaurus.com, and just list every synonym it gives me for the word ‘cute’ and then post all of his photos, but that’s boring.

I met Jaxson when he was barely 2 months old.  He was TINY!  One of the smallest babies I’ve ever seen!  Don’t let his small appearance from four months ago fool you though, his personality has never been small.  During his first shoot, while I was chatting with his parents Cory and Kerilynn, he was making all sorts of noises trying to join the conversation with sounds rather than words.

Not only has Jaxson grown at least twice in size since I last saw him, but he’s CRAWLING now!  It absolutely blew my mind to be able to go from meeting this itty bitty, brand new person only a few months ago to watching him crawl after Cory’s keys across the grass like he was a miniature man on a mission.  Just look back on his newborn photos and compare them to how he looks now, I guarantee you’ll definitely see a big change!  Cory and Kerilynn, he’s going to be a teenager before you know it, enjoy this for as long as you can :)

Now, I don’t normally include silly pictures, despite the fact that I am almost filled to the brim with silliness myself.  Yet, Cory, Kerilynn and Jaxson are a family after my own heart.  They embrace the things that make them laugh!  I love it!  For this post (and hopefully more to come!), I’m including a short but sweet “blooper” collage.  The following three images are some of my personal favorites :)

Dorian’s First Photos!

Some of you may remember adorable little Jaxson from his portraits that made it up onto my blog about six months ago.  Shortly after giving Jaxson’s photos to his parents I met his aunt Deandra who was four months pregnant with Dorian at the time.  Of course she looked through her nephew’s photos, loved them, and it was decided that I would be taking her new son’s first photos as well :)

Deandra, Tray and Dorian make a lovely family, and they were all a pleasure to work with!  Despite the fact that Dorian wasn’t too thrilled about the prospect of having a big camera hovering around his face at first, the images turned out beautifully.  I’m proud to have been a part of taking Dorian’s first photographs.  I hope you all enjoy!

Chris and Miranda, I can’t possibly say enough nice things about them, their family, their friends, and their beautiful backyard wedding celebration.  They were an awesome, beautiful couple to work with!  Their guests were friendly and had a wonderful time laughing, visiting and celebrating.  Not to mention, their two children were absolutely gorgeous.  I had a field day capturing their happiness on their parents’ big day.

It’s easy to see what a huge success their celebration turned out to be.  See for yourself :)
