Baby Boy Keaton { Windsor | Santa Rosa, Ca. | Newborn Photographer }

I adore this family, we have met up several times now for pictures and they are an absolute pleasure to work with.  I was overjoyed to meet their new baby boy, Keaton.  He is so handsome!  He looks very much like his mama, which is perfect since her daughter looks just like her daddy.  Now they are even.  I sure hope they have more pretty babies!

A cute baby girl came home today,
And lots of wishes I send your way,
Now isn’t she just the most wonderful child,
With that beautiful eyes and that sweet little smile!
Tiny hands and tiny feet,
You’ve waited so long for a baby to meet.
A gift is a baby from heaven above,
A perfect example of God’s precious love.e694-blogboard-sizeIMG_0271webIMG_0291webIMG_0292webIMG_0322webIMG_0330webIMG_0341webIMG_0347webIMG_0351webIMG_0365webIMG_0371webcmpro_member

Windsor & Santa Rosa Newborn Photographer | Baby Iris

I feel so lucky to have a lifelong best friend!!   It’s a very special relationship.  Danielle and I don’t get to see each other often, but when we do, it’s like we were never apart.  We have been through a lot together, including high school drama.  If a friendship can endure that, it can endure anything!

Danielle and her husband Richard just welcomed their second baby into their family.  Her name is Iris and she is a little love, I could cuddle her all day long.  I’m so happy I got to meet her.

Windsor & Santa Rosa, California Family Photographer | The Midwife

I know a very special woman, she has the hands of a healer, the soul of nurturer, the voice of a cheerleader, and the presence of an angel.  She is a midwife, she is MY midwife.  Connie delivered all 3 of my children, and I always felt so safe in her care.  For those of you who don’t know, I am a Labor & Delivery nurse as well as a photographer.  I have attended hundreds of births with Connie, and that is why I chose her to be my midwife.  She is so calm and caring and I know the women she takes care of feel just as I do.

To thank Connie for all she has done for my family, I offered her a photo session with her and her girls.  This was 3 years ago, and we FINALLY made it happen.  Our lives are so busy it was hard to find the time to make it work, but I’m so glad we did.  Only one of Connie’s daughters was able to participate, but at least she will have pictures of herself and Olivia to cherish forever.

For you Connie, I love you!!
