    On Her Own Two Feet | Memphis Family Photography

    When my cousin Jessica asked if she could take some photos of her and her daughter Kaylea as a Father’s Day surprise for her husband, I of course said yes. We happened to have good weather for it on a weekday morning, so I photographed them at the Overton Park golf clubhouse on the way to work. The friendly manager, Ali, completely captured Kaylea’s fancy. It was a tossup as to whether she found him more diverting, or the act of being held aloft in the Old Forest. Either way, it was a treat to watch her just beginning to stand on her own two feet.

    Six-Month Cheer | Arlington Mini-Session

    Here is a sweet six-month session with my lovely little cousin Miss Kaylea and her parents Jessica and Mike.  It is probably the only session I have done in the recent past in which my subject gets her ear licked.  :)  Kaylea continues to be so expressive and adorable…and MAN, does she love her Mom and Dad.

    Will the Real Eli Please Stand Up? | Arlington Child Photography

    Somehow, Mr. Eli is already nine months old.  He’s growing up incredibly quickly–and it’s a good thing, too, because in January he’s going to be a big brother!  I just couldn’t be happier for Fred and Caroline (and Eli).  When I think back on our first photo session together last November, it’s amazing how fast things change.  They had no idea that in a few short weeks, Eli would be joining their family, and they certainly weren’t expecting that only a year after that, he’d have a little brother.

    Life can be pretty awesome.

    So Eli is exploring the world with both feet these days, standing up and totally cracking himself up with his new abilities.  He will be running all over the place in no time flat.  For now, though, we let him commandeer the porch at the Grapevine tea room in Arlington Depot Square.

    I love when he gets the spiky hair going.  My mom brought a pumpkin to ring in the fall and was overcome with joy that he was wearing an outfit with a fall theme.  “Now we can use the pumpkin!!!” she cried maniacally.Nine month photos in Arlington, TN

    Poolside Chats with Eli

    Another of my favorite guys reached his six-month milestone this month – Mr. Eli.  We were under the threat of severe thunderstorms, so we popped over to Eli’s Blondie and Brownie’s house for this shoot.  (Eli is the only kid I know whose grandparents are Blondie and Brownie…but I do know a grandma named Honey.  So many literally-sweet grandparent names!)  Eli is about five seconds away from sitting up on his own, and he’s rolling around, doing pushups on his blankets, and generally being in love with his big (canine) brother Knox.  I love watching him become such a little man.

    He LOVES standing up and being walked around.  He looks like he’d rather skip crawling altogether and just do the locomotion.Eli - Memphis six-month photos

    The quilt we used in this shoot was designed by the fabulous Ms. Betty Nowak! If you’re interested in getting in touch with her about custom quilts, learning to quilt, or anything in the realm of quilting arts, email her here.

    Mother’s Day Minis

    Nothing like a beautiful morning outside with moms and their babies.  That was the idea behind our Mother’s Day minis this year, with Mary Alice bringing one twin at a time, and Suzanne bringing Molly and her own mom, Miriam.  We met at the golf clubhouse at Overton Park and discovered that the quickest way to a kid’s heart is through a spinning pinwheel.

    So much sweetness.
