Baby Garrett - 10 Days New

What an incredibly awesome job I have!  God continues to bless me through this business and I'm so grateful.  How else would I ever have the chance to get up close and personal with such amazing people?  Shelley let me know before her delivery date that she wanted me to do the newborn pics of her baby boy.  When Garrett arrived, he had some jaundice issues that needed to be addressed before I could meet him.  We met when he was 10 days new and what a precious little bundle he is!  Yes, he has a cleft lip and palate, but I don't even see that when I look at him.  I think he is perfect (in every sense of the word) just like God made him.  I am in love with these shots - what a sweet little angel.....(sighhh)

I think Garrett really liked the props I made for him...

Jonathan & Crickett - Engagement Session

My little brother is getting married.  He's with the woman he wants to spend the rest of his life with.  He's happy & in love.  *tears*
He & Crickett got engaged on Thanksgiving Day and they are having a May wedding.  I was so excited to do their engagement session.  They knew just what they wanted and where they wanted them and that was music to my ears!  This was such easy editing because they both are very natural in front of the camera.  It goes without saying how beautiful they both are.  I mean with those blue eyes and full lips - they are gonna make me some gorgeous little nieces and nephews ;-)

Jonathan and Crickett, I love you both and I am so excited about your big day.  Thank you for allowing me to photograph your engagement session.  I hope you love the way they turned out as much as I do!

See the rest of Jonathan & Crickett's E-session HERE.  Next up is Crickett's bridal session.  I can't wait!

Princess Scarlett

Back to Scarlett's session.  I'm sorry, Princess Scarlett, as she chooses to be called from time to time.  My sister-in-law text me pictures all the time of her most imaginative outfits that Scarlett puts together all by her almost 3 year old self.  Her imagination is out the roof & I love it!  I call her "Fancy Nancy" because of her stylish ways.  I decided to let her dress up for me and let's have a pre-birthday minisession while mom was busy with something else.  She was game and also enticed by the new stickers and Pez candy that Aunt Marcia brought for her ;-)

Sneak Peek of Isabella

Another little darling.  I got to meet Isabella (4) who had the most awesome personality for such a little person.  She warmed right up to me despite her parent's expectations (I love when that happens)  ;-)

Here's a sneak peek of Isabella and another day in my wonderful life...

Preview of Scarlett & Zeke

I am blessed with beautiful nieces & nephews.  You better believe that Aunt Marcia is going to grab every opportunity to get photos of them too.  It's such great practice for me and it's just another excuse for me to spend time with my family ;-)

I spent some time with Scarlett & Zeke yesterday.   
Here's a sample of the shots I got of Zeke who is now 3 months old and still smells so so sweet.  Yes, he's sporting a Marcia Todd Photography original hat...

Scarlett, almost 3, was in her normal "dress-up" mode.  I call her my Fancy Nancy.  She's so cool and she has the biggest imagination of any kid I know...

I'll post more of these two later.  I think maybe I was just having blog post withdrawal (which I believe to be a real side effect to non-blogging).  Whew, I feel better now ;-)

Rachel Marie | 7 Days New

Newbie, Rachel Marie, was so perfect for our session.  She slept the entire time and tolerated all the moving and hat changes.  That's what is so great about photographing babies that are less than 10 days old - they usually don't mind it.  I have to say that new parents, Holly & Blake, were good sports too.  They sat back while I did my thing.  Thanks Aunt Sandra & G-ma Marie for your assistance :-) Congrats to you all, your new addition is gorgeous.

Just take a look at those sweet cheeks & lips! 
 The white bear hat above and the turquoise hat and pastel green hat with pom-poms below were made by ME...I think she wears them so well.

 Yes, she has dimples!

If you like the sneak peek, then you'll love the rest of her images.  You can check them out HERE
