{time flies…}

…when you’re having fun.  what a joy it is to have had the privilege of photographing such amazing children and families over the past seven years.  baby mary katherine turned one this year and it’s hard to believe…seems like just yesterday we were showing up at her house to photograph her mom who was pregnant with her big brother!hayes1hayes2hayes3hayes4hayes5hayes6hayes7hayes8hayes9hayes10

{carrying clemmie: part 3}

you first met clemmie when we posted images from her mommy’s maternity session…then we introduced her to the blog when we shot her newborn session.  now we’re super excited to show you how she has grown!  please note, she’s still on track to be in the top of her class as she’s very well-behaved and full of poise.  her bright blue eyes and soft red hair melted our hearts almost as much as her sweet smiles!  we just can’t say enough great things about her mom and dad, either.  as hannah and I were loading up to leave the session we both commented on how laid back and easy the sessions are with them.  laid back awesome parents= laid back baby sessions!  clemmie is carrying on with style and grace…excited to see what her one year session holds.


{genetically speaking}



noun ( used with a singular verb )

1. biology . the science of heredity, dealing with resemblances and differences of related organisms resulting from the interaction of their genes and the environment.
when hannah and i (hilary) left the grantham home last week, we both commented on how we felt the session had gone and how we hoped we had truly captured the “sweetness” that’s all packaged up in raleigh’s little already-developing personality.  as i edited the imagery we were privileged to get, i secretly marveled at how truly amazing a newborn is and how genetics and environment play such a huge role in the outcome of a child’s disposition and appearance.  as i studied the images, i could see the same quiet reflection in raleigh’s eyes that i see in both of her parents’.  she was calm and very alert…gazing at her mommy with what seemed to be sheer admiration and already curious about her surroundings.  i think i can almost predict that she’s going to love books like her grandma linda and be super intelligent like her mom and dad.  i’m predicting, that she will have lots of opportunities to throw a baseball and shoot hoops with her daddy, plenty of tennis matches with her aunt deneen, and a few backyard flag football games with her uncle grant and cousins.  one day we may even see her sitting in her grandma nancy’s salon getting her hair fixed only to hop on her grandpa laban’s motorcycle to get it all messed up.  i can already see her crossing the finish line for her first mega-marathon with her aunt nikki and mom cheering her across the finish line!   i’ll bet she learns a lot about eating healthy and staying fit…and i think she’ll have lots of internal motivation and be very well-rounded.  i’m not prophesying…just “genetically speaking”.
