I love the summer…it has been newborn central, with several more scheduled for August and September!! I love, love fresh souls, they are my favorite to photograph!
Meet Mister J…6 pounds of adorable boy. He made his entrance nearly two weeks early, and at a week old, he was totally interested in everything going on in his house today, which meant he didn’t sleep a wink! It is a good thing though, because he has some amazing eyes!! Thanks to mom, dad, & grandma for sharing him with me today…it was amazing!
Can you believe it is time to start thinking about the holiday season already?!? Things are in full swing here, with many repeat clients already booking their coveted spots! If you are interested in finding out about this year’s special please email firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll send over all the details! I look forward to seeing many new faces as well as my favorite little ones & their families this fall!
I couldn’t resist one more of Miss R…
Meet Miss R…8 pounds of pure perfection! After making mom and dad wait thirteen days past her due date to finally meet her, she made her entrance fast! I shot mom’s maternity session six weeks ago (http://melissazihlman.com/Blog/2008/06/09/perfect-belly/)…and mom and baby look so much alike!
Here’s a quick sneak peek for mom, dad, and the whole family! More to come…
I love contests – I love to give things away and meet adorable little ones! So here’s the 411on the latest…
