Hailey {4}, James {6} and Family

This is my brother's adorable family!  I have missed them all dearly while we have been living in Michigan.  Little Hailey was born just days before we had to drive away to Ann Arbor and it killed me leaving during such a special time in her life, missing the newborn snuggles and infant milestones.  I watched James grow almost weekly and was so sad to miss that with Hailey.  Doing the math, I knew we would be back when she was 4 - and that year has come and it's time for us to really get to know her and get to know big boy James better! James has always been very outgoing so  seeing him just a few times a year, I always felt like I know him, but Hailey is a bit more shy.  I love doing shoots for people I know because I feel that it's a time I really get to see a different side of the children - and I found out this night that Hailey is hilarious, spunky, and loves to dance like Jem and the Holograms.  Love all of you guys and soooo excited to be able to see you much more!

P.S. I got a little carried away and edited more pics than I usually do - guess that's a perk of being my brother ;)

Hailey started to imitate me with a fake camera -  I have never had a kid do that before and it was hilarious!

Baby {G} Reveal!

This couple is very very special to me. Brooke and I have been friends since about 7th grade (so when I do the math, that makes it just about 20 years - wow, that makes me feel old!!!).  We have been through middle school, high school, college and now adult life together.  Although we are unable to see each other much these days, when we do it's as if we have not been apart.

The announcement of their pregnancy was of the best news ever.  This was not easy for them at all.  They have gone through 3 years of infertility and finally had a successful IVF.  They drove 3 hours for this shoot on a very icky weather day - rainy, chilly, and super windy - but they were determined to find out as soon as possible and capture the moment of the reveal.

I was the first to know if it is a boy or a girl because I needed to pick the tube with the correct color of tissue paper!  It was a blast (and a big cleanup process, haha!). Congratulations again to you two - cannot wait for your baby's newborn shoot!!!!
