Another beautiful little girl with a ton of hair! Ahh my favorite. Little Thea was a gem to work with (what baby isn’t?!) and seriously made some of the wildest newborn faces I’ve ever seen!

I […]

I had the privilege of meeting and photographing this precious little lady. Her name is Jane and isn’t she beautiful? She has such a petite perfect little face – and she slept like a champ the entire session – right up until the last setup! She fits right into this family that is always a […]
