Amelia Lynn Gregory

Talk about a GORGEOUS baby. Will needs to go ahead and buy a gun to fight the boys off. She is three weeks old in these pictures, and since it was freezing outside, I asked them to meet me at the art museum inside. I love the natural light and the big white chairs. She loved laying on her belly and was perfect....a natural model already. Amy's mom made an adorable bow and tag that says "From God". A sweet baby like Amelia really is a gift from Heaven. Her skin is the prettiest skin I have ever seen on a baby. I'm obsessed with her big dark eyelashes...they are amazing. I also just love the little crease under her bottom lip. If you can't tell already....I wanted to take her home. Thanks Amy and Will for letting me take her very first photoshoot! Congratulations on a beautiful family!

Anna's Maternity

This is Anna and Kyle Kusterer. "Baby Kus" will be here in just a few weeks! Anna happens to be one of my closest friends and Kyle is one of my husband's closest friends. We have had some great times together. They're lives are about to change (for the better!) with their first baby and we are so happy for them! We were actually over at their place the night they found out they were pregnant! I don't think I've ever been so excited! Anna has always been beautiful but she is stunning pregnant. She is going to be the best Mama. Ben and I can't wait for us to be on this journey of parenting together with our wonderful friends! We love you guys!

SSOOOO WE have WALLS!!!! The house looks so good. When I walked in...I thought I was going to pee in my pants. I finally feel like we are getting close. After the ceilings are repaired and painted, we are doing the floors. Cabinets and trim are in the midst of all that. I got in there a few nights ago and cleaned up most of the mess, and for now, my job is to pick out paint colors. This has been such a hard job for me. After studying art all those years I see color in everything. Even if it appears white...I see some kind of color in it. At our townhouse, I repainted several times because it didn't turn out how I wanted it to. However, I've been reading a ton of magazines and blogs. Apparently, beige is "so 5 years ago". I read that lavender is the new beige. Try to get Ben Davis to paint his walls lavender. However, we are using some purple in our bedroom and are thinking about mixing some lavender into the ceiling. I'm talking barely there though. We have a very ecclectic style combing vintage(me) and modern(ben) pieces. Plus, I have art and photographs that need to be on neutral walls. Neutral freaks me out the way color freaks most people out. At our old place, I had orange walls, a crazy chartrussey yellowish green color, and several other colors you wouldn't think to put on your walls...but I loved. However, I want this house to look more "grown up", tasteful, and suit the style of the house. Since I've done the bold color thing...I decided to go for something different...alittle more chic. I love change, so I knew I would want something that went with my decor changes...especially during seasons and holidays. After all, it's much easier to change your pillows than your wall color. I have asked my friend Nate, who is a painter, to help me find shades of grey that are true, crisp and most importantly not sad. We'll see how it turns out! Want to come help us paint??? :) I've included some pictures below of my inspiration for the walls. Hopefully, our ceilings will look like the one in the picture with the fireplace.

The Mullis Family

The name Ethan means 'strong'. I don't know anyone with a more perfect and fitting name. This little boy is Ethan. This little boy is strong. In his short little lifetime, he has endured and overcome more than most of us will in our whole lives. He was born with a severe heart defect, called pulmonary atresia with VSD. I truly believe that Ethan is the healthy, spunky toddler that he is because of his parents and my dear friends, Joye and Jeramie. God knew they would do an awesome job being his mom and dad. I have watched in amazement as a precious, fragile little baby has grown into a sweet little boy, that my own son has befriended and I adore. It was an absolute honor to take pictures of one of the most beautiful families I know.
