Memorial Day Weekend with Alyssa

Alyssa surprisingly really loved going in the water and splashing around. She even went under the water! It was a fun day.

Alyssa's First Birthday

May 18th was my niece Alyssa's FIRST birthday. It just so happens to be only 4 days earlier than her mom's birthday...and it just so happened that my sister Kelly's birthday was on a Saturday, the day we celebrated Alyssa's first birthday! Lucky mommy! hahahahaha The things we give up for our kids. And we always heard our parents tell us that we would never appreciate the sacrifices they made for us until we had kids of our own. They were very right!

Alyssa had a princess themed party and dressed the part in her little princess dress. She looked darling in her outfit! Even though she won't remember her birthday party as she gets older, she will have pictures to hold on to!

Auntie Amanda loves you Alyssa! Well we all do but, one day you will realize that I am your favorite;)

Elizabeth Grace

-From Amanda-

My bestest friend Cynthia gave birth to a BEAUTIFUL little girl, Elizabeth Grace, on Friday night. She is tiny and long (7lbs 3oz/21in)! I was lucky enough to hold Lizzy in the hospital and I was also privileged to take her newborn photographs today. This is going to be part 1 of 2. She didn't enjoy taking pictures in the nude (I don't blame her)...already trying to be modest;) So later this week, I will be back in action, snapping more photos of her.

Here is a sneak peak at what took place today...

Newborn Shoot- Jake

From Amanda-

Meet little Jake Hardy. His mom (Laurie) and I have been friends for the last 26 years...a long long time. I was privileged to take Jake's newborn photos when he was ten days old. He was such a good little boy! It was hard for me to decide which photos to post because they were all so cute! Any feedback would be great!

The Babies on Easter!

I know that I have been a little absent on my blog postings. I have been very busy with my new job and the first month seemed to be all consuming. Hopefully I will get back into some normal kind of schedule soon.

Here are a few pictures from the babies today.

I still cant believe how PERFECT the weather was at the beach today and in February no doubt!
