My Amazing and Beautiful Great Niece… Annabelle Grace

This is Annabelle Grace… I'm gonna call her A.B. cuz we're gonna have an "initial thing", her and I.  
C.J. and A.B!  It's only natural because her dad and I had a name thing too, I gave him his official Indian/Native American name, "Little Round Butt" when he was but a wee one.  
Forgive me, Bronson, if I should have kept that on the down low.
Isn't she the most beautiful and wonderful little ball of squishable yumminess you have ever seen?!?
My sister… Grandma Klassen made this cute little mermaid tail, soooo sweet!
AND… she's perfect!  She just slept and let me move her to and fro.  
Perfect, I say!
 Love Love LOVE the way she hold her little hands!
Yep… a sweet little angel! (Oh… the cheeks!)
Can my little nephew... curly haired, Cheeto eating, Klingon (bruised forehead) nephew, 
 be a daddy?!?
Ah… she wuvs her leffalaunt! "I will hold him and squeeze him and call him George!"

 I'm not gonna lie… I'm in love.
At the end of our shoot, she started to fuss… I took her from mom to see if I could settle her down for a few more shots.  I held her close to my face and shushed, she opened her eyes and look right into mine.    I took the opportunity to official introduce myself, "Hi A.B., I am your Great Aunt Cija." 
She looked deep into my eyes and then peed on me.
I can tell she loves me as much as I love her!
This photo of Tracie and her sweet love makes me teary.  
A match made in Heaven.
 I am certain this is just how she was in the womb.  
Sweet & lovable!

 Oh Bronson and Tracie, I couldn't be more happy for you.  There is just something unbelievably special about holding your baby.  I will be praying for both of you as you seek to bring her up in a deep love for the Lord.  
She is truly His poiÄ“ma, created in Christ for good works that He has ordained just for her. 
 XOXO… Aunt Cija

Newborn Photography in Castle Rock, CO

This morning I got to hang out with this very handsome fella.
Mr. McGwire.
He was very awake when I first arrived, so were able to get some fun pictures of him bright eyed and bushy tailed!
His mom and dad had some very fun props for us to play with…
oh my goodness, he just looks so cozy in there.
They did an awesome job of warming up the place so it wasn't long before he was zonked.
Did you notice those TOES!!!
 Oh, and this is Weston… big brother extraordinaire!
Hats, horses, cowboy boots!
Ah… so stinkin' cute!

 McQwire was the perfect gentleman, and I had a great time working with him and his fabulous family 
and the good news is, they are doing the baby milestones package, so you and I will get to see him again at 3, 6, 9 & 12 months. 
 Oh, such squishy yumminess!!
Love this photo of McGwire and his dad… such a great size comparison. 

 Okay… I must be off!!

Senior Pictures in Castle Rock, CO

I can tell you how happy it makes me to have been out taking Senior pictures today!
 That means that my favorite time of year, is just around the corner!
 Tenlee is actually graduating this year… just weeks away!
Her amazing mom has home schooled her from the very beginning!
 I was pretty excited to finally have the chance to work with Tenlee, I have thought for a long time that she would be fun photograph… I was right. 
 True to spring time in Colorado we had some clouds, wind, rain and sun!
Even found a patch of snow!

 This was one of my favorite outfits and I loved it with all the dead wood.  
The splash of color on the boot made it even more fun!
 My other favorite outfit and she made the jacket thingy.  
It was awesome!  
 Such a beautiful young lady. 

 I told you, I liked this outfit!

 Phew… I posted a lot of pictures!!!  
But I just loved so many!!!
I hope to see lots and lots of seniors this summer!!!  Tell your friends@
