Ainsley Violet

Being responsible for helping set this couple up five years ago, I can't even begin to describe how amazing it was to get to photograph their new baby girl.

Miss Ainsley Violet is seven weeks old, but she looks more like a newborn because she's so tiny. Then again, don't let her size fool you; she was full of spunk. At one point while laying on her tummy, she lifted her head and held it high for a few minutes -- a first her mommy said.

I have a few favorites, of course, but I'll probably hold them all as dearly as Ainsley's parents because they both mean so much to me.

A glimpse of Dan, Timberly and Ainsley's session:

Becoming Allison's mom less than two years ago plus your artistic talents enables you to put together a package of photos that every family will treasure.

If I had to pick two in a sea of great shots, they would be of baby holding her head high, and asking "What is this new world all about?" and the last one of happy and proud Mom Timberly holding equally content baby.

Those are wonderful! I love them! She is so tiny!

I just got back from Mich. today and got to spend a week with my new baby niece and her four-year-old big sister. She's also seven weeks old. She's incredibly strong. She's been holding her head up since she was born - she's like hulk baby. Except super tiny and cute. She only likes to be held vertically so she can look around. Put her any other way and she's unhappy. She hums little baby noises when she sleeps. I'm in love. Ok that's enough. Now I'm just bragging, but I'm such a proud aunt! I love my nieces. :D Perhaps I'll try to post some photos on my blogger account.

Awesome photos Kelly! You're doing amazing. I love watching your creativity come out through your portraits.
