Seems like just yesterday that Alicia had me snap a quick photo
for her pregnancy annoucement.
I am in disbelief that was about 34 weeks ago!

Back story? Alicia, her husband Brian, and their 2 year old Bronson have been
our neighbors for almost 3 years now,
and I can say with love and pride that they have become some of our best friends <3
Bronson was actually my very first newborn in my portfolio!
And now I’m anxiously (read: IMPATIENTLY) awaiting the arrival of his
little brother or sister.

Not a week goes by where we aren’t in and out of each others house for one reason or another
(Eggs? Vacuum? Bronson wants to say hi?)
So I’ve watched this bump grow and grow and grow.
Last night I was actually helping A out with her belly cast, and I was just marveling
over the miracle that is pregnancy, and how in that bump shape
an actual.human.being was waiting for their perfect moment to arrive.

I wish I could even put into words how honored I feel to even get to
share a shred of this journey with them. They have entrusted me with so much and
I treasure that with everything I’ve got.

Now onto the most important part. Boy or girl?
They chose not to “unwrap that gift early”. But my money is on GIRL.
I just know that my niece is in there. And I’m pretty adamant about that.
I’ve even got a bet going with their German exchange student.

Man, it’s going to be embarrassing for me if it’s a boy.

BUBBLES.
DISNEY.
CRAZY LION TOY THING.
A GAME OF LEAP FROG.

Sounds like a blast, right?
Which is exactly what I had spending the morning with Jared and his little brother Adam.

Their little family unit (mom and dad not pictured)
came over to Phoenix from LA for a celebratory weekend.
And what a crazy time!
We get so many visitors in March because of Spring Break, Spring Training….Spring everything.

I can tell that the boys were having  the time of their lives,
so many smiles and fun conversation.
(btw, Jared thinks the Little Mermaid is cool too.)
Adam tried to crank out a couple times,
but when you’re in the presence of a baby whisperer, your grump can’t last very long ;]

These cuties were so adorable,
that I had a grin on my face, ear to ear, going through all of their shots.
And now I can’t wait to share them with you!

{little miss mila | ahwatukee newborn photographer}

If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle.
{Vincent van Gogh}

MEET LITTLE MISS MILA!

You may have seen the maternity shots of my awesome-kick-butt-the-best hair stylist, Holli
(if not, you can find them HERE)
And this little angel is what became of that special baby bump <3

Now let me tell you, Mila is every bit of a spitfire as I thought she might be
(and I definitely thought she would be, her mom is as sassy as they come, just how I like em’!).
Mama told her that she’d be mad forever if Mila did anything outside her diaper,
so she proceeded to pee or poop on mom not one…not two…but three times!
Man, how could you not giggle at that? What a diva ;]

I can’t wait to deliver the photos so I can snuggle up on her again!
