{Little Man} | Clarksville, TN Infant Photographer

Little Mr. L came to visit me today to show me how much he's grown since his newborn session. And, my has he grown! It's hard to believe that he's only 3 months - he reminds me of my son who always looked much older than he really was.

I enjoyed seeing you today, Mr. L. I hope you get to feeling better, too.




{Tiny, Con't} | Clarksville, TN Newborn Photographer

As promised, here are more peeks into yesterday's newborn session. I cannot express how excited I was to have her grace my camera - it has been a crazy season of little men lately, so I was super delighted to have a little lady to play with.

{Tiny} | Clarksville, TN Newborn Photographer

At only two days past her due date, this little five week old beauty was so tiny (in comparison to my gargantuan children!). She also had the most fantastic head of hair I've ever seen on a newborn. Pantene - you may have your next hair model. :)

Just one for now! Stay tuned for more of this little beauty.

{Pretty, Pretty Princess} | Clarksville, TN Infant and Family Photographer

I had the extreme pleasure of having royalty come see me today. This beautiful little princess with her porcelain skin and big, blue eyes was quite the lady for me today. As a parent you LOVE this age because your child is so curious and learning all new things - as a photographer, you get a good workout trying to get that all coveted eye contact. :) Thank goodness for your fishie, Miss A. :D

I was a pleasure, {B} Family. I hope you enjoy your peeks of your princess. Of course, there's a family photo thrown in, too. After all, Miss A wants to show off her parents, too.



Just for fun!


{Expecting} | Clarksville, TN Maternity Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing Mrs. W and her beautiful baby bump yesterday. She was a trooper - kept smiling even while contracting!

It was an honor and pleasure. I hope you had a little fun yesterday. :)

Enjoy your sneak peeks! Until then, I'll be praying for a swift labor and delivery. <3 DowlingMaternity_0060web

{Three Months Young} | Clarksville, TN Infant Photographer

Mr. G came to visit me again for his three month session! My, oh my, how this little man has grown since I last saw him. He's super tall like daddy and has the sweetest singing voice around. He had lots and lots to say about having that big ole camera lens in his face. :)

It was so good to see you, Mr. G, and how much you've grown. I can't wait to see you in another three months and watch your transformation then, too!

Mom and Dad, I hope you enjoy your peeks into our session.

{Mr. O is Six Months, Too!} | Clarksville, TN Infant Photographer

I have been incredibly fortunate to have so many six month old little boys grace my studio. This little man was no exception!

Mr. O was the perfect smiley gentleman. Even with the sniffles, he didn't fail to cackle and crack and smile on command. :D Love it!

It was a blast seeing you today, Mom and Mr. O! I hope you love your sneak peeks. :) I look forward to seeing how much you grow in the months to come.

{Mr. D is Six Months!} | Clarksville, TN Infant Photographer

I was super excited to see little Mr. D again for his six month portraits. I think I was just as excited that he still had some of his little cheekers left!

I had fun playing with you, little guy. I can't wait to see how much you grow in the next six months. :)




{Awaiting the Surprise!} | Clarksville, TN Maternity Photographer

This was probably one of the cutest couples I've had the pleasure of having in front of my camera. Mom-to-be was absolutely GLOWING for being due just two weeks from the day she was here. Can you say jealous?!?!

I can't wait the arrival of little Tic Tac and the big announcement of "It's a boy!" or "It's a girl!" Yes, that's's all a surprise!

I hope you love your peeks. :)




{We are Family!} | Clarksville, TN Child and Family Photographer

Meet the cutest sibling combo this side of the Mississippi! Mr. H and Miss B get their good looks honestly. It was definitely second time's a charm with these two. I had fun playing with you guys and running in the fields and watching the cows.

I hope you enjoy your peeks, Mom. :)

Thank You! | Clarksville, TN Family Photographer

I just want to send out a HUGE thank you to everyone that has been so flexible and understanding with my husband's scheduling and my resulting unavailability. You will never know how much it means to me to have such caring customers that are willing to reschedule, wait patiently, or be squeezed in last minute so that my family could enjoy these last few weeks and days together uninterrupted.

I don't usually post personal photographs or things on my blog, but I felt like I needed to share these - to show that I, too, am human. :) Thank goodness for tripods and wireless remotes! I was able to take MY family out yesterday to take family portraits before my husband deploys.





A little bedtime fun!
