I shot these lovely nuptials not long before Leo was born…& now that their gallery is nearly ready for delivery, I wanted to share a sweet little bitty sneak peek  :)

Sweet Baby M

What an honor it was to have been asked to capture these precious first memories of this sweet baby girl.  I may have shed a tear or 2 myself at the tangible love in the air between these 2…

…and baby makes 5!

So I know that I’ve been quieter than usual on the blog lately…

We’ve just been a wee bit busy:)

RJ & I welcomed our new addition on August 4th at 11:51am…and he’s just the most perfectly wonderful little man any of us have ever laid eyes on.

World…meet Leo Dawson, the little bitty boy who made our #jordanpartyof5 complete.



The time I spent with this adorable pair on their wedding day was short & sweet but oh-so-lovely…

K & K:  Thanks so much again for inviting me to capture these cherished memories for you:)
