Crawling all over the place and pulling herself up. Look out world, little Miss Allyson is on the move. Dressed up in an uber adorable tutu for her 8 month photo shoot she was much happier this month. She even showed off some of those new pearly whites :D
She is definitely Mommy and Daddy's little princess. Look at this tutu! Seriously so cute. Also, she has the biggest prettiest brown eyes.
I got to meet another sweet baby while I was visiting Wisconsin. Meet little Miss Evelyn. She has some of the best baby hair I have seen! Beautiful brown locks. Her Mom, Krystal, and I served in the Army National Guard together. So we spent the first half of the session catching up since we hadn't seen each other in quite some time. I was so excited to catch up that we used up all of Evelyn's sleepy time! But we worked with it, while our boys destroyed a package of fruit snacks :)
We both had boys as our first child and they are only a month or so apart in age. Our Daughters are a little further apart in age but it's great to have another Mom who you can talk to as your children go through the same growing pains. It truly takes a village even if that village is just late night texts :)
Welcome to the world Miss Evelyn... Congratulations Krystal and Chad she is beautiful! I still can't get over all that beautiful hair!!
Crawling last month to pulling herself to a stand this month, this little girl is bound and determined to be able to chase after her brother. I will not be surprised if she is walking by her first birthday. She has always been a happy girl but now that she can move around and explore her environment she is having a blast.
I was a little bummed I lost her mint/teal headband I have been using for her pictures :( I think the hubby may have accidentally thrown them away. So we filled in with this adorable purple-ish princess headband to go with her skirt this month. I still can't believe we almost have a walker on our hands. Once she can chase CJ we will really have our hands full! We are also very excited to have my Mom and three brothers come down to Tennessee for her first Thanksgiving.
My best friend had her second little boy 2 weeks before I got to come home for a 2 week long vacation to Wisconsin. I tried to convince her he needed to stay in until I got there but she was not a huge fan of that idea :) Even though I didn't get to be there the day he was born I was so excited to do his newborn pictures. He was such a champ and stayed asleep for a good portion of it. I was so glad that I got this alone time with them to soak up some snuggles.
He is such a sweetie and seriously the spitting image of his older brother! Photographing newborns is for sure my favorite type of photography. Watching them peacefully sleep and taking in their sweet perfect little features is the best kind of baby fix. I would love to know what babies dream about, I'm thinking milk, as in when is the next time I get some of that sweet liquid gold. Congratulations Mandy! He is perfect :)
