Sometimes, my favorite shots are the ones that happen after they think they are finished with the pictures.  So much fun!

Newborn Photography: Baby R.

I got to meet the adorable Baby R. just two days before Christmas!  What a sweet Christmas present.  🙂

I was so excited that R.’s dad picked my Yoda hat to put him in for a couple of pictures.  Waiting to use it a long time, I have been!

mhaynesphoto_familyphotography_s6

Such a precious family:

Maternity Photography: H.

‘Twas the night before “Due Date,” when all through the house,

Everyone was prepared for their new little mouse.

The bassinet stood in the corner, with care,

In hopes Baby A.J. would soon be there.

mhaynesphoto_maternityphotography_h5

The children were waiting:  they’d soon go to bed,

And visions of babies would dance in their heads.

mhaynesphoto_maternityphotography_h2

Everyone was so eager to meet their new friend,

Love filled the house, its good news to send.

mhaynesphoto_maternityphotography_h4

And so, I exclaimed, as I drove out of sight,

“Happy Due Date to all, and to all a good night!”  😉

Family Photography: The W. Family

I had a great time hanging out with the W. family last weekend!

I knew V. from teaching several years ago, and I had A. in my music class for a few years, but it was my first time meeting the rest of them.  It was a cold day, but we had a blast!

It was great to see you, W. family!  🙂

Newborn Photography: Baby O.

My favorite part of photographing a newborn:  all of the snuggles!  Baby O. was super cuddly and sweet.  ❤

I first met C. this past spring, and I was happy to get to play with him again.  Two-year-olds are so much fun!

It was great to see you again, C.!  🙂

 

Family Photography: The M. Family

I first got to meet the M. family about six months ago, when I took Baby A.’s newborn pictures.  Oh my goodness, she was so sweet and interested in everything, even then.  And I just loved hanging out with her family!

Now A. is 6 months old, and it’s time for some family pictures!

She is such a cutie!  The whole time I was working on her pictures, my family kept hearing me say, “Awww!”  I couldn’t help it.  🙂

Doesn’t she just make you want to smile?

Happy 6-months, Baby A. … It was great to see you guys again!  🙂
