hello, baby Hadley.

I absolutely love seeing the early days of a new life. Newborns are so tiny and snuggly, parents are so tired, and big sibling toddlers have no clue what's going on. The newborn days are so temporary that it makes it all beautifully chaotic. 

baby Hadley is the newest addition to this cute family I've known for a while (the mama is a teacher at my old high school)! Hadley shares a birthday with Emma Watson so she's obviously destined to be smart and beautiful and interesting; it's an Aries thing ;) 

oh man. all the cuteness just melts me! babies babies babies all day.

xo, Michelle

photoshoot: a new sibling bond.

IMG_8756*047_edit_watermark I'm so excited to share this adorable photoshoot I did last week!

My first newborn session, and big sister was so so cute with her new baby brother. We shot for almost 2.5 hours in the park, and while baby didn't want to curl up tight (that's ok!), I still managed to capture his sweet face and his beautiful sister's vivacious personality, and  the sweet new bond between them. These photos made me smile the whole time I was editing them! :)

I really love how these came out. I always say it, but with every shoot I do, I feel more and more confident in my ability to execute my vision and how I see people. I'm studying constantly. I see the improvement from one session to the next. I feel so good about my future. Art + photography + babies= my heart is constantly bursting! And I really love that I can give this art to families and they'll proudly display these moments I captured.

Here are some of my favorites!
