Claire's Baptism: Part I {Northville, Michigan, Novi, MI Portrait Photographer}

I'll be honest - the last 10 days have been a whirlwind of party planning and activity that has completely pushed me to my limits.  There is a reason I am a photographer and not a party planner!!!  It all started with Claire's baptism last weekend and continued through for Graham's second birthday yesterday!  Yes, we've been busy (not to mention the unexpected assignment of healthy snacks for 26 preschoolers for 5 days last week)!   But, please bear with me as I show off my kids and their special March milestones!
Our precious baby girl was baptized last Sunday, and we celebrated this special event with a lovely luncheon with our family and friends!  I couldn't wait to share a few sneak peeks into our special Sunday.  There will be more portraits of Claire coming soon and detail shots of her beautiful Christening gown.  But, in the meantime, here's our sweet little peanut and some of the delicious food we enjoyed :)

Cousins! {Northville, MI, Novi, MI, Farmington Hills, MI Newborn and Family Photographer}

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful group of cousins.  They were in town to visit their newborn cousin (Baby M) and grandparents!  This lively group was so much fun, and, might I add, perfectly dressed.  They definitely look like they walked right out of a Baby Gap ad, and I adore the beautiful spring colors!  I hope you enjoy the sneak peek!
We were also able to squeeze in a few photographs of Baby M, all by herself.  So sweet....

A Christmas Blessing {Metro Detroit Newborn, Family, Children's Photographer}

Just before Christmas, my sister-in-law's sister was surprised to find out that a baby was waiting for them to adopt!  After years of hoping for a little one, here she was - a Christmas blessing.  I felt so lucky to be able to photograph her at just 10 days old and to share in the excitement surrounding her arrival.
So, without further ado, I present Baby Hannah!!!

Claire Adeline - 10 days old {Northville, MI, Southeast, MI, Metro Detroit Newborn photographer}

I'm so excited to share a few photographs of my little peanut - Claire!  She's now 3 weeks old, which is so hard to believe!  I took most of these photos when she was 10 days old in order to take advantage of her still being very sleepy and curled up.  I know I'm incredibly biased, but I love the photographs of this beautiful little baby.  There's something so special, sweet, and innocent about newborns, and while it takes a little longer to get the desired images during the session, it's completely worth all of the effort.  I know I'll be treasuring these images forever.  Can't wait to add a canvas to my wall gallery :)

And a few of my sweet trio!

This one melts my heart as a mom - I'm completely in love with the way my 21 month old son is looking at his new baby sister.  So sweet!!

And a couple holiday-inspired photographs in an effort to get "THE ONE" for my combo birth announcement/holiday card.  Just wait 'till you see the resulting card!!
