3 hours old


and sweet as can be. my next door neighbors adorable baby was born today and even though those docs wouldn't let me in the o.r. to shoot the  c-section, i was lucky enough to get a few pics during this precious time, just about 2 hours after he was born. i am rediculously behind on posting and editing (which is why i don't have time to share more just yet!) but had to throw this one in. i'm a bit in over my head this week which generally means my blog gets neglected but opportunities to photograph moments like this makes my job SOOO worth it. i promise i have lots of sessions and WEDDINGS to share SOON!

peanut posh & sassy babies...

look out. these kids are as cute as can be and dressed to the nines! this shoot for the new children's accessory line peanut posh was soooo much fun.  i felt so lucky to be included from the beginning of the project, picking clothes, choosing models and locations, brainstorming with Hailey (the brains behind the whole Peanut Posh operation! amazing!)... it was a blast. 

Hailey designed every bow, hat, tie/bow tie and car seat cover from this shoot. These products are truely one of a kind and SO well made. The details are fantastic! She truly didn't cut any corners- trust me, I got to be up close and personal with every SINGLE product- I did the children's shoot as well as alllll of the product pictures on the website. And that's a lot! 

Here's the great news, my birthday was last week (thank you husband for your sweet post and to all of my blog friends for your well wishes!!) and we all know it's better to give than receive!
So we decided a little giveaway would be just the thing. Go to the peanut posh WEBSITE 
and check out all of the amazing products. Then leave ME a comment telling me your favorite tie and bowtie or your favorite bottle cap and you will be entered to win the BIG KAHUNA PACKAGE of bows OR your favorite TIE AND BOW TIE. Yaaaay! I will choose a winner Tuesday night at midnight. 

Oh yea, and remember mr. max's adorable bow tie from Easter? You better believe I got it from Peanut Posh.





baby Kennedy's outfit supplied by gymboree. rain boots by crew cuts via down east outfitters. 



the car seat cover and accessories has to be one of my favorite products- they are gorgeous and the quality is unmatched. i can't wait until i have a good excuse to buy one myself! 


girls clothing by GAP and Old Navy...

Except for of course the pettiskirts. Now who doesn't LOVE these??!! They pared so perfectly with the Peanut Posh look. Lucky for you they are from the local SASSY BABIES located in Bountiful and Gardener Village. Oh, and they come as little as newborn and as big as 8-10 years! so cute. Sassy babies has everything you need for your stylish little one- I could spend an hour looking through the shoes alone... sigh. I am thrilled to tell you that you can also visit the Bountiful location and see my work on display very soon- I feel so lucky to be featured in such a beautiful children's store! 

Now, get shopping!
