I have now officially been a Dallas family photographer for 10 whole years. Sigh. Oh my little baby photography business, you were so small and cute once. Just a wee little infant crawling along on your hands and knees, then wobbling around on your fat toddler legs, and now taking off running and sassing your mama. You are at once a wonder and a supreme pain in my rear. But I love you anyway. Now go play quietly somewhere and let me take a nap.

Speaking of babies, I have done a lot of newborn photography lately and that makes me HAPPY. I feel pretty lucky when my job consists of cuddling a new little life form that is only a week old – even when that little life form poops on me. Yep, it’s still pretty awesome.

Here’s a new little baby girl that I got to meet last week. She was so sweet and soft and super cuddly. I didn’t want to put her down. Like most females, I cannot RESIST a newborn baby. I constantly have to fight the urge to pick up every baby I run into in Target. I know one of these days I am going to get smacked with a handbag.
