Maddie Vargas :: Newbies!

Remember these two?

They just welcomed this sweet little face into the family.

Can you even believe how precious she is?

I can't handle it.

Baby shoots are tough for me. Baby is definitely boss!! You can't go into the shoot with an agenda, or a vision, or a plan, because goodness, that little 6 pound person just doesn't care what I think! Newborn shoots are still very new to me, and I've found that the more comfortable I am with mom and dad, the better it all goes. And Jenny? Well, I just love her. And her hubby's not so bad himself ;) This little baby is so blessed to have them.

And they are so blessed to have her. I love these two photos - it just looks like Theo is surrounding and gathering his wife and daughter close to him.

Maddie Maddie.....I just want to kiss those little cheeks.

Grandma and Grandpa were essentially bursting at the seams with pride over this little girl. Grandpa would make cooing noises and chat with her while rubbing noses, and Grandma would cuddle, and rub her tummy, and stroke her hands. I loved it!

Maddies room is the perfect little girl room, complete with Tiffany colors, and girlie pink polka dots :)

I couldn't decide if I liked the color or b/w better...

Grandpa is an avid fisher....they've starting Maddie off early :)

Michael and Emily :: Engaged! (Chicago, IL)

Her best friend and college roommate had an older brother. His little sister had a college roommate and best friend. Then that little sister, college roommate, and best friend studied abroad and everyone came to visit her. And so started the power couple that is Michael and Emily.

Photobucket

They are both in school and work a lot of hours. They fit in time on Sunday's together - complete with church, family time and lots of studying side by side. And they are so ridiculously obviously in love.

Photobucket

I have just a few things to say about these two as you bask in their adorableness.

Photobucket

First? They laugh a LOT together.

Photobucket

I mean it. A lot. Michael must be a really funny guy because he makes her smile big time. And Emily must make him really happy because he actually smiles as he talks. And then they smile at each other, and it grows and erupts into a chuckle. And usually a hug to accompany it!

Photobucket

Michael loves to hold her. Touch her. Kiss her. Love her.

Photobucket

.....at every opportunity.

There is a quietness about them. A settled-ness.

They were absolute PRO's in front of the camera for me.

They are sweet. Both together, and to other people.

Emily? Well....she's gorgeous. She has killer eyes. She is quietly vivacious. She is patient. Photobucket

Cutecutecutecute.

These two were total troopers. It was cold, and it was windy. But they hauled out and laughed when Emily swallowed her hair, and rubbed each others arms to keep blood moving.
Photobucket

They get married this fall, and I absolutely can not wait to see them again and get some more of these two captured.

I'll leave you with my favorites from the day.
