Wrinkly toes. That sweet tuft of soft hair. The tiny details fade so quickly. They grow up and meet milestones faster than you would imagine.

From the client: “Our experience, from start to finish, was very professional. Nicole was wonderful with our little guy…we had no concerns at all during our newborn session. “

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a sneak peek on the blog (usually you can check them out at the facebook page here). I hope this sweet smiley boy brightens your day just like he did mine 🙂

If you’re expecting a newborn in May or June then now is the time to book, very limited space available so please contact me asap. I am also booking July through October dates and would love to hear from you!
