Westyn’s Post-Cake Sink Bath {lifestyle}

It’s funny how the smallest moments can be the biggest. After Westyn’s cake smash, Mom took him to rinse off in the bath. It was such a beautiful, everyday moment. I started snapping some photos. Funny that these are some of my favorites from the whole session. <3 I’m making a move toward offering more “lifestyle” type sessions and I couldn’t be more excited! I take a ton of these types of pictures of my family everyday, and would love someone to be here to capture me in these photos. Everyday images to show my babies I was there cuddling them, reading stories, and washing dirt off of their little faces. That’s why I’m so passionate about this kind of photography and can’t wait to start doing it more. Stay tuned!:)

Easter Mini Session Favorites {2014}

With this year’s Easter Mini Sessions coming up I thought it would be a fun time to share some of my favorites from last year.:)I could say a lot about these sweet kiddos. Since I’m technically still on maternity leave and my sweet baby needs cuddling, I’ll keep it short & sweet. These images can do all the talking for me.:)

Below are Madelyn’s Easter photos. Mom had us do some special shots to announce that she was expecting. I couldn’t share them at the time of course, but they turned out so cute! I can’t wait to see Madelyn again this year, and meet her baby brother Byron.:)

Our Little Cole Michael {brand new}

In case you’re wondering why it’s been so quiet around here… I finally met a guy I’d been waiting on for 9 long months! Our third little one was born February 2nd & we love him to death! I’ve been soaking in every minute of him.

Cole Michael Furlin came into this world on February 2nd, 2015 at 4:54pm weighing in at 6 lb 2 oz and measuring 19 inches long. <3 I’m technically still on maternity leave, although I am answering emails. I’ll be back to shooting on March 22nd for our 5th annual Easter minis, and I’m currently booking sessions in the third week of April.

Fall Mini Sessions {special event}

I have a special announcement! For one day only we’ll be offering our Fall Mini Sessions! Fall is such a busy time I wasn’t sure whether or not to do these this year, but I’ve had so much interest I decided to do them for one day, Saturday, October 18th. These mini sessions are very special because they are one of the only times we offer mini sessions for the whole family, not just the kiddos. I hope to have many parents take advantage of this and get IN the photos this year.:)

You don’t have to have kiddos to take part in these mini sessions though! Couples are welcome to join us and get some wonderful photos together.

Sessions will be first come, first served. Sessions are reserved once session fee is paid & contract is signed.
