Family Photos | Featuring Little Ace

I had a great time meeting and photographing this family last weekend! Little Ace, who just turned one, stole the show with his cute outfits – especially those suspenders and bow tie!

Newborn Portraits | Baby Hollyn

Baby Hollyn made her appearance just about two weeks ago, and I had the privilege of meeting and photographing her last weekend! She did an amazing job – sleeping when she needed to, barely crying, giving me a couple of smiles, and being chill through the whole session. She’s one beautiful, sweet baby! Here are a few of my favorites.

Miss M Turns One

My baby is ONE! My emotions aren’t sure whether to be excited or sad about my littlest turning one today. I think it’s a mix of both. She’s had a busy week with 4th of July festivities, and she’s got a busy weekend ahead with her big birthday party. She’s now drinking cow’s milk from a sippy cup, climbing up everything (like up and over the couch), standing up from the floor, and taking a few steps! She’s starting to say more words with meaning now – it’s fun to have two-way communication with her!

Check out how she’s changed since last month. Since this is her last “first year” photo, I’ll be moving away from the rocking chair pics to photos standing with Daddy, like we did with big sis.

Miss M | 11 Months Old

Looking back at last month, I think Miss M has grown a lot! I believe she weighs about 17 pounds now (still petite), but she loves to eat! She can eat a whole Chick-Fil-A kids meal by herself, and she regularly consumes more at the dinner table than her 4-year-old sister. She’s cruising along furniture and getting into more stuff every day. (Her favorites are colored pencils, gel pens, the cat bowl, and the stairs.) She has started saying a few words, like “light,” “agua,” and “uh-oh” – my personal favorite. Best of all – her sister is great at getting her to laugh!

This is one of her silly faces she makes when she squeals or talks!

Miss M | 10 Months Old

My little girl turned 10 months old on Saturday! After taking these photos, we found out she was sick. Looking back, I can see she doesn’t look like she’s feeling well. But, she continues to change so much each month! She loves food and is putting on some weight, but is still little at 15-16 pounds. She pulls up and grabs everything in sight. She likes to climb stairs and stand up on stools, climb into the dishwasher, pull up on hanging bath towels, eat crayons, and all sorts of crazy things her sister never did. I think she’s going to be our little troublemaker! She also started clapping, signing “more” at the dinner table, and making more sounds that mimic real words.

See how she’s grown since last month (and see how much the weather has changed).

Miss M | Nine Months Old

This girly turned nine months old a few days ago. She had a big month! She popped out two teeth and started crawling, pulling up, waving, and eating finger foods. She loves food – we haven’t found anything she won’t eat yet. She still nurses great, but we’re going to start feeding her more high-fat foods, because she’s weighing in at 14 lb, 14 oz., just the 5th percentile. She stands 26 inches tall, about the 10th percentile. Her sister was small too, so we aren’t too surprised by her petite stature. See how she’s changed since last month. (You may also notice that it’s much colder in Kansas this month than last month.)
