Baylynn King – 4 Days New!! | Virginia Beach, VA, Newborn Photographer

This precious little princess certainly took her time before making her big debut! Momma and Daddy had decided to wait to find out whether they were having a prince or a princess and had hoped to meet her much closer to the beginning of May. Despite everyone’s anxious anticipation, we all had to wait until after Memorial Day for Miss Baylynn King. (Tell me that isn’t the sweetest name for a little girl whose parents both love to fish and be on the water!!)

And, as you’ll see for yourself, she was certainly worth the wait!

I love a little girl who can rock a tutu!! I made this one and the hairbow to match especially for this session… secretly hoping there was going to be a princess to wear it! (I had a contingency plan for a boy… but never quite got around to making that little fishing hat… glad I didn’t!!)

Every little girl should nap in a tutu!

Welcome to the world little princess!!

Thank you so much, little lady, for totally rocking this session!! And to Baylynn’s sweet Momma and Daddy who let me just play away with their little princess. There’s nothing quite like that sweet newborn smell and those scrunchy little fingers!

Reagan’s 1-yr Cake Smash | Virginia Beach Children’s Photographer

OH Miss Reagan – you are one gorgeous little girl!! I’ve been looking forward to this cake smash since her momma mentioned it at her 6-month session. We have so many little boys in our life that any time I get to incorporate sparkles and pink into one of my sessions is exciting! And it gets even better when there are bright blue eyes and perfect pouty lips to go with all that pink!

Reagan was a little hesitant about this cake thing at first… you can see the “are you sure this is okay?” look on her face.

Thank you sweet girl for bearing with us and giving us some good chuckles and adorable images!

Miss Reagan, you are such a pleasure to work with – you come right on back anytime you want to spread pink frosting and confetti around my kitchen!

Kayleigh | 6 Months – Noland Trail, Mariner’s Museum Park

When Miss Kayleigh’s momma contacted me for her 6-month portraits, I was thrilled!! I just love working with this family. I fondly refer to them as my catalog family. They’re so happy and at ease with each other that they naturally fall into the best “poses” and just look so great together. And Kayleigh was such a gem for her newborn session – she certainly spoiled this photog with her awesomeness – and I couldn’t wait to see how much she has grown!

Yet again, Kayleigh rocked her session. She’s such a happy, smiley little girl! Even though she was up bright and early the morning of her session, she smiled through the yawns and gave us some of the most gorgeous images.

I just love a little girl who loves to play dress up! We had so much fun watching Kayleigh’s reaction to this tutu… she was just loving every minute of the combination of the tutu and her toes while she happily hammed it up for us. The expressions on her face were priceless!

Just for fun, here are a few side-by-sides with images from their maternity session that we also did here at the Mariner’s Museum Park. What a difference a few months can make!!
