Who remembers my sweet little 5lb newborn niece, Amiyah? If your new to the blog, click here to check out her newborn session (image below in case you don’t want to check it out ..lazy LOL just kidding). I can’t believe she will be ONE in about two weeks, time truly flies {cliche saying but it’s true lol}, this is my official LAST session, photographed her at 36 weeks (I am now 37.5 weeks) and I love when I don’t edit sessions an hour after it’s been shot…I like coming back to the session with a new set of eyes and reviewing all the magic that happened in front of my lens :-D. My niece and her family rocked out their session and I hope you all love it as much as I do….of course I’m bias tho 😛 This is what I call “when you are so sleepy the camera becomes a phone” photo haha – Headband by Simply Sweet Baby Hats Happy family 😀 (Green/Pink headband by Simply Sweet Baby Hats AND Ivory/Red/Gray headband by Wisely Crafted Originals Happy sisters, because every sister needs one!

Ever heard the saying “it’s a small world”….how cliche but it is soooo TRUE! Especially when your husband knows everyone in surrounding towns haaa…in all seriousness.

Sooo hard for me to turn them down, especially when they were referred by a loyal client! That’s right, I accepted and photographed this little man the day I marked 36 weeks pregnant and I AM SO H A P P Y I did! The day the new momma of two stopped by to drop off the deposit…well guess what? She grew up with my husband and her grandmother lives a few houses down from my mother in law, which is where my husband lived his entire life (practically)…totally a “it’s a small world” moment LOL! Anywoot, thank you to all my clients who keep spreading the “melz photography” word, my family and I (especially me :-P) appreciate it! Zaden was a complete sleeper…not sure if it’s because I am getting better with my newborn whisperer magic, because I am pregnant and newborns sense it or because Zaden is just an awesome sleeper…maybe all of the above?

(BTW, he slept thru his entire session and was such a good baby!!!) Which set up is your fave?

Girls are so much fun and I wish this family nothing but the best on their journey to raise two little ladies!
