Retail facilities will have you believe that this is the most wonderful time of the year because the holidays are approaching and they would like us to wave our consumer flags as feverishly as possible. However, I am finding that this is a wonderful time because of all the gorgeous babies being born, and not because of the 50 catalogs I'm getting in the mail every day or the radio stations that have already begun playing "Jingle Bells" and Porky Pig's rendition of "Blue Christmas".

The real magic this time of year is found in families like this one. Crystal and Ken welcomed their handsome little boy, Christian, into the world. Being around this kind of love and joy is such a treat.

If someone could figure out how to bottle the feeling you get when you watch a mother hold her child, or when you hold a newborn baby's tiny toes and that would be a great gift! (But I will also accept a new car or trip to Tahiti)

Here is the ever-adorable Kendall in a perfect state of giggle. She's taking her big sister job very seriously.

A big congratulations to the Liles family and their sweet new baby boy!

I should know by now, but each photo session I see, reminds me again just how incredible your talent is!
You make every one and everything just magical.
This little baby and his family is a perfect example. Just awesome.
I just know you're going to be Presidential Photographer soon.
