Four weeks ago today, I welcomed my 3rd boy, Henry Ryan. So yummy, so delicious. He was my first client of 2015 and such a stellar one he was! Not going to lie, he did everything I asked of him without protesting. Please welcome my little Mochi Ball at 7 days new..

I know it’s a little late to post this, but I thought, “ah, what the heck. Why not?”. It is so hard to get my munchkins together and smiling. Even a photographer is not immune to the stubbornness of their own children! Happy belated Halloween! Although, it is Halloween/dress up day in our house everyday! […]
