My how time has flown… Look how much Mr. Colton has grown! Check out his newborn images here. Mom wanted a special set up for both birthday boys, and had someone make sock monkeys, and sock monkey hats to match. She had been collecting some wonderful props that I felt rather envious of! haha! Check out the sweetness!

Winter storm Rocky was rather disappointing. Instead of making a snowmen I find myself needing a boat to cross the new lake in the back yard. And tomorrow a pair of ice skates?

Just a little peek to tide you over… Hello baby Brooks!

Here is part one of my time with Dariane. See part two here. We were all rather excited that it snowed a little bit for us, but it was cold. Dariane sure was a trooper! And loooooovely! Last month I found a perfect pale peach gown at my favorite antique store, for $1.50… however, it had a very low cut detailed lace top, and wasn’t the look I wanted. So I did a bit of upcyling and cut the top portion of the dress off for a later use, then added an tiny elastic band to the new waist. This made a perfectly silky- flowing skirt. We added a lace top from forever 21 and vuala. I like snowy sessions, don’t you?!

This is the latter portion of my shoot with Dariane. The snow flurried sky was becoming dark quickly so we took to the field behind my parents with haste. I love the images we had captured for having such little time. Of course it always helps when your subject has such a pretty smile and gorgeous blue eyes. I’ll be sharing the first part of the shoot next week.
