One of the things I like to do is look at other photographers’ blog and websites.  When I come across a newborn or infant photographer and I decide to comment on a photo or two, I would say “this almost makes me wish I photographed children…the key word being ALMOST.”  Taking these photographs of the Lovely Lyla has made me seriously reevaluate my position on that subject.

Shontionn and Maria are no strangers to this blog.  I have had the pleasure of shooting and blogging both their engagement and maternity sessions.  And the next shoot will be the one year cake smash party.  What fun!

Although Shontionn and Maria were married in a small, private ceremony, they plan to eventually have the big wedding  when Lyla is old enough to be the flower girl.  That will be a very special moment indeed.  In the meantime, enjoy these photos of the Lovely Lyla with her rightfully proud Mama and Papa.

Thanks, kids.  Doing your sessions has been a wonderful experience for me.  Blessings on your little family.  See you in 6 months.

I blogged about Hazels’s maternity session here.  And with the passage of time, I was privileged enough to photograph the newest member of Hazel’s family.  Here are a few samples of that fun session in the park.
