I met up with the sweetest little four month old this weekend and was instantly enamored by her and her entire family. Unfortunately, I’m not sure the feeling was mutual. She kept falling asleep on me! Well, not on me. Her mama was the pillow of choice but *I* was certainly the cause of the boredom, of that I’m quite sure! Apparently I’m not nearly as entertaining as I believe myself to be (although I will continue to believe this because delusion has it’s perks).

I forgive her though because, after all, it is hard work to be a baby. Especially one that has to maintain this level of cuteness all day.



We were on a roll. And then this happened…


And I knew the winds had changed. Her mama snuggled her up good and within seconds…this…


(oh how I miss those snuggly, sleepy baby days! but I digress…)

The session took place in her grandparents’ home which was stocked floor to ceiling with amazing antiques and artwork. In addition, her grandmother had sewn the most delicate and dazzling christening gown I’d ever seen.

We had big plans for that gown.

We were vetoed by Sleeping Beauty.


After a quick snooze in the chair we headed to the back porch to grab a few more shots. She perked right up when she saw her mama and I was able to capture one of my favorite moments of the day.

There’s nothing in the world like the feeling of your baby smiling back at you. Nothing at all.
