The G Family | Carolyn Ann PhotographyFebruary 28, 2013

Before Amelia’s beautiful birthday party, I had some time to hang out with the G Family and get some family and individual portraits. I will just say this is one of the most loving, fun, awesome families I’ve ever met. Also there are some gorgeous blue eyes in this gene pool that will just melt your heart! Enjoy :)

Viv was KILLING me with these sunglasses (and the fact they are on upside down)!

Then we had some fun playing :)

I know you’re thinking the same thing as me: Are you looking to adopt?

Happy Birthday Amelia! | Carolyn Ann PhotographyFebruary 24, 2013

I was blown away by the darling details at Amelia’s 4th birthday party- rethinking my whole wedding theme ;).  Not to mention that Amelia might be the most charming young lady I have ever met.  I don’t know how her parents can handle those baby blues and cheeks on a daily basis!

Amelia + G Fmaily-3

The theme was Hello Kitty meets Valentines Day :)

Sheila + Eric Engaged | Carolyn Ann PhotographyFebruary 20, 2013

I met up with Sheila and Eric to shoot their engagement photos on Valentines Day! Sheila came dressed to the nines in some killer heels (no way could I walk in those!).  I had an absolute blast shooting with them.  They were goofy, gorgeous, and so in love <3

Ameilia + G Family-1

I think I am in love with Amelia (which means I want to be her when I grow up…hmm how does that work again?)

her taste (pink, glittery, kitties)

her eyes (glowing blue)

and her ability to pose in anyway I asked her to.

photographer’s dream right here. stay tuned for more pics :)

Baby Oliver + S Family | Carolyn Ann PhotographyFebruary 16, 2013

I used to work at the most amazing elementary school in Iowa City (and I will fervently defend this school as downright awesome).  Lindsey is the school counselor and graciously let’s me follow her around for shadowing or course assignments.  Even more graciously, she let me have a little glimpse into her beautiful family’s life 2 weeks after the birth of this absolutely adorable baby boy Oliver.  Enjoy!

I kind of have a thing for baby feet. I am pretty sure I inherited it from my mother who will use the word “toesies” :)

I also got to spend some quality time with Hazel who was quite the ham and has the most precious blue eyes!
