Welcome Landon Dean

We are very happy to announce the birth of our third child, Landon Dean Rea!  I took this photo about 10 seconds after pushing him out and I am so in love with how it came out!  We had a birth photographer there (Amanda from Free Dove Photography – she is awesome!!) but this one just brings me to tears.  As you mommas know, this moment, the moment right after birth when you see your baby for the first time, is easily lost in the sleepless nights and hectic first days home.  I am so thankful to have been able to capture this moment from my perspective.  Huge thank you to Dr Hugh Donnell and the entire Mercy staff for helping us welcome our newest addition!  Have a Merry Christmas everyone!  I’ll be back in February.

Lifestyle Newborn Session – Baby Dodd

A few days ago I was blessed with the opportunity to photograph a sweet newborn!  Lifestyle newborn sessions are a love of mine, and I don’t get to do them nearly as often as I’d like, so this was a treat for me!  This sweet baby boy was the cutest little thing and I just ADORED his little knight in shining armor theme for his nursery!  Say hello to the newest member of the Dodd family!

Welcome Baby J!

I typically don’t specialize in the posed-style of newborn photography (generally I take much more of a lifestyle approach), but when sweet Stacey told me she was having a new little one, I was so excited that she wanted me to do photos for her newest bundle!  After two girls, Mr. J came along as a big surprise!  Dad finally got his fishin’ buddy!  Mom loves reading and dad loves fishing, so I tried to incorporate both of those loves in their photos.  Baby J is just the sweetest thing with his adorable little cheeks and big ol’ eyes!  He is just pure perfection!  Introducing this handsome fella, welcome to the world baby J!
