ohhhhh this little one truly melted my heart during her newborn session, here she is again at 8 months old. She’s still a total sweetheart :)
If you weren’t smiling before.. surely you’re smiling right now :-)
Just tooooooo cute!! :-)
Hope you enjoyed the peek!
*big smile* do you remember Adrian’s newborn session…?
Now he’s 7 months old… sitting up… and being as cute and adorable as can be! :-)
I loved how happy and excited he was when one of his favourite toys made an appearance :-)
…and then he found the tag and I just adored the look of concentration on his face (and those gorgeous long eyelashes!)
Adrian loved giving his mama open mouth baby kisses too, so sweet :-)
A quick outfit change and one last sneak peek..
Are you smiling? I sure am! Hope you enjoyed the peek! :-)
“I’m expecting two newborns, any time now” I would excitedly reply, whenever someone asked about my work. I have newborn babies on my mind. All the time. Seriously. I love it! :D
I couldn’t wait to meet Alena, one of my newest clients. She was just 9 days new when I travelled to Amsterdam to photograph her and her beautiful family.
Isn’t she just GORGEOUS!
and those teeny tiny toes… *love*
Once we had her sleeping, she slept sooooo soundly :)
She’s so beautiful… *ahhh* :)
Let me share a couple of her big sister too, meet Sophie.
Sophie was all smiles when she was inside one of my baskets…also known as “the boat”. She loved it when Daddy spun her around in it ;)
And just one more of Alena, because I can’t resist ;)
Hope you enjoyed the peek!
I don’t know about where you are, but here in The Hague, autumn seemed to pass in the blink of an eye! On a damp and drizzly day in November, I met the beautiful H. Family. They were absolutely fabulous, and totally rocked their family session in Clingendael Park, even braving the rain!
Having endured several days of stormy winds, there weren’t so many leaves left on the trees, but the floor was a sea of gold. So beautiful!
Finding shelter from the rain…
They were an absolute delight to photograph!
And when we were done, it was (finally!) time to climb trees… ;-)
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek. Have a lovely weekend everyone!
Remember this gorgeous mama-to-be? I was delighted to hear of baby’s safe arrival.. A boy.. and with a gorgeous name too!
Welcome to the world Dexter! :)
A wonderfully adorable little brother for a delightful big sister!
I just want to *kiss* those gorgeous cheeks of his! Sweet dreams little one..
It was lovely to receive his birth announcement in the post too! :-)
Designed by Jolette of Mamamila with photography by Tigs Creations! We just recently started working together. Her designs and cards are simply gorgeous and I’m so happy to offer her services to my clients!
Hope you enjoyed the peek…
The Maine Coon breed of cats are absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t wait to meet these three special felines.
Meet the very beautiful, very curious and very playful Ianthe..
She loved to play, and would quickly run and jump, all the while keeping a keen eye on her toys!
Zeno, the male and the oldest of the three, was really quite a lot bigger than the two females. Curled up in his cosy basket, his size wasn’t so obvious at first; but when he leaped up for the cat toy I got quite a surprise!
And then I saw Alegria..
I was a little worried that shy and anxious Alegria would hide away whilst I was there, but no, here she is… She was clearly a little anxious at first, but with a little patience, and perhaps some curiosity from Alegria, she did show her pretty face :)
She’s beautiful! :)
I can’t resist sharing a couple more photos of Ianthe..
Ianthe was quite content with my presence and took every possible opportunity to pose for me ;)
They were really an absolute delight to photograph, I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek!
Have a wonderful week :)
Remember this beautiful couple? Here’s their sweet baby boy.. the one who liked to play a game of water fountain! ;-) I completely lost count of how many times he played that game! We changed blankets so many times; I had quite some laundry to do afterwards, not that I minded one bit!
His little game began a nano-second after I took the photo above (also the very first photo I took at his newborn session and the only one in this pose) – with his hand held up to his face like that, he looks like he’s planning it too, so funny!
He’s absolutely gorgeous, and utterly adorable! Don’t you think?
Ssssshhhh… baby dreaming :-)
Ahhhh total sweetness! *love*
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek :-)
Have a fabulous Friday everyone, and a great weekend!
I didn’t hear yet if this baby has arrived… but surely must be any time now! This gorgeous mama-to-be has such a cute little bump that we waited till later in her pregnancy for the maternity session.
So… will it be a boy? or a girl? I can’t wait to hear!
And this gorgeous little one is going to be a fabulous big sister!!
Isn’t she adorable?! :-)
Such a beautiful family of 3, waiting to be a family of 4. I’m so excited for them! :-)
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek!
I was super excited to receive the news of George’s arrival and couldn’t wait for his newborn session. Last year in August, I photographed his delightful big sister the day after her 1st birthday, and I was really looking forward to meeting the newest member of this wonderful family!
Isabelle is a beautiful big sister, isn’t she gorgeous? And little George, just 10 days new, was an absolute star!
He was such a ‘curly’ little baby, and he slept beautifully for me too :-)
I think the one above is a clear favourite of mine, each time I see it I want to reach out and snuggle with him! ;-)
And for the last image in the sneak peek, a special outfit for George and a look at those baby blues!
Oh George, you. are. gorgeous! *ahhh* :-)
Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek!
