Well, she's certainly not a teeny, tiny, itty bitty newborn anymore. I first photographed little Sierra last September when she was born. Now, I am certain, she is topping the charts, much to the delight of her family, who is loving her chubby smiles, chubby arms and chubby legs. This session was focused at the whole family: Sierra and her beautiful sisters, Sophie and Samantha, and her parents, Shawn and Sarah.

These girls, every time I see them for photos or a visit, sure do prove that girls are made of sugar and spice and everything nice. They are as sweet natured as they are beautiful.

The girls all had on their sparkly shoes and their prettily painted toes. This mama is raising them right :).

Here is Sierra, the little pumpkin. She is grinny and responsive and pulled the funniest little faces whenever the wind blew in her face.

It was Sarah and Shawn's anniversary the day we met up. They are a great fit for each other, and doing a wonderful job raising their girls.

See, it takes a strong daddy to heft around a chunky baby like that for a whole session. My goodness, I know some grandmothers are awfully happy to squeeze those cheeks.

Sierra, the teething baby that she is, started out in her dad's arms for this shot, but she kept lunging for the railing and trying to gnaw on the bars, so mom held her away from the temptation.

Here are the big girls.

Love how mom dressed her beauties in the same color but chose outfits that really went with their personalities.

Sarah is giving her girls just what they need as they are growing, including lots and lots of love. I bet she smooches this one hourly...one of the benefits of a baby that can't get away yet!
