Little Dani here belongs to two of my favorite people. Daddy Dave and I go WAY back and his beautiful wife Kristy and clicked the moment we met. I've had the immense honor of being able to chronicle their journey together from their engagement photos, to their wedding, to their pregnancy pictures and now... tada! The arrival of their adorable little girl Dani.
Being able to watch and document this journey for them has brought me so much joy. It's been so amazing to watch the transformation from dating to married to parents. Such HUGE milestones in someone's life and I got to be there taking pictures for every single one of them! What a treat!
Little Dani definitely takes after her parents. She looks like the perfect combination of both of them and has their strong, vibrant, lively personalities. She did not want to acquiesce to my plans right away. She wanted to let me know who was boss first! :)
Eventually, time and patience (combined with a few tricks of the trade) won out and she relented, allowing me to photograph her and her adorable little self not to mention her magnetic smile. I love catching those smiles! I CANNOT wait to watch her grow up.
Kristy and Dave, I love you guys to pieces and am so touched that you have let me chronicle this journey for you from the beginning. I can't wait to see what the future holds in store for your bright and beautiful family. Kristy, you are a NATURAL at being a mom.
This first shot cracks me up. That's the "what the heck?" look that I've seen on Dave a billion times... muahahahahahaha
Look at those long, lean fingers, supermodel material.... :)
My favorite of the shoot, so much love.
And this folks is the look of a stunning new mom. Blissfully exhausted and completely aware that life just doesn't get much better than this.
