I am so thankful to call the beautiful mama of this family my friend. I first met Vicky when we taught at the same elementary school a few years ago. She is one of the most loving and compassionate people I’ve ever met. Her hugs are instant comfort. Her four children are so lucky to call her mom! We got together to capture some updated family photos before her oldest son left for medical school. Such an exciting time! Congratulations, Zach!

Baby James Michelle and David

James from Newborn to 1 Year

July 5, 2018


I was recently looking at a photo of David holding baby James in his hand from our newborn session with Tiffany McClure and I asked him, “do you think you could hold James like that now?” And an idea sparked… let’s recreate his newborn session now that he’s a big one year old! We got out my camera, the newborn basket, a few blankets, and the outfits we wore last year. It is so fun to compare the photos and see how much James has grown! He was 7 pounds at birth and now weighs 22 pounds. He was an exclusive milk baby for six months and now he eats anything and everything (grapes and pasta are his favorite!). He had a tiny head with dark, wispy hair and now he has a head full of thick, blonde hair. James used to stay in the same spot until someone moved him and now we’re chasing him all over the house! It’s been such a fun year and I’m so excited for all the fun to come with our TODDLER!
