Cousins Addi and Lily

Addi, now 4 months old, and Lily, 3, have been on my blog before … Addi as a newborn here and Lily four times before but most recently here at 18 months. Gloria, a good friend since our early high school days, has both girls on Mondays and just Addi the rest of the week so wanting a photo session, we chose Monday afternoon (since I work mornings). Even though it was getting close to feeding time for the little one, we still got some pretty sweet smiles from her. Lily (who has the most gorgeous hair color ever I might add) just went with the flow. Even though it’s hard work for a grandma with two in tow to finagle a photo session, I applaud her for doing it — babies grow so fast and change so quickly — and what a sweet gift to her adult children. I have to give strokes to Grandpa Michael also because he helps out in a big way with the girls and they adore him for it. Now here’s to beautiful little girls, adorable chunk, sweet smiles, doting grandparents, wonderful friends, and silly shades. Hugs to you Gloria. Mary

A is for ADDI!


We couldn’t get the smiles on this next one, but this dress and elephant were made by her momma, Sara. Do you see an Etsy shop owner here? I sure do. Beautiful work Sara!



This next one was shot for a surprise Father’s Day frame for Daddy Blake.

And for Lily’s daddy Derek, we have this cute little number below.


To my friend Gloria and Michael, you two are such dedicated amazing grandparents. These girls are so blessed!

That little baby has so much character in her face, and you captured it beautifully.

Thank you Vince – although I can’t take credit for the cute character part. 🙂

Omg Mary! These are fantastic! My little girl looks so beautiful in these shots! You captured her features and little personality perfectly! I know she wasn’t the easiest baby but seeing these moments captured forever makes me so thankful for your hard work and efforts! You have a true talent

I’m so glad you love them Sara. It’s been some time since I photographed a 3-month old so wasn’t sure what to do. I hear she doesn’t like tummy time but I love the sweet expression of the one on her tummy.

Mary…Thank you so much for the great memories with our granddaughters. What amazing patience and talent you have to capture such wonderful photos! We refer to the cute tummy photo of Addi as her Marilyn Monroe shot. I loved Lily’s photo with her little hand up by her face. She was thinking about a question you had asked her and she looks so sophisticated. Lily is such a happy little girl and loves her cousin very much so it is touching to have their together shots. P is for perfect! You are so appreciated Mary! Michael and I thank you!!

You are a wonderful Gramma Gloria – very sacrificing and loving to those two girls. Your kids must be so proud to have a mom that gives so much of herself for their children so kudos right back to you my friend! So happy we could make it happen — sort of! Ha! Kids … who can predict them?!

[…] no, neither of the girls is a triplet, just in case you didn’t see their full post and were […]
