fresh. pure. perfect. | Tina Ramirez Photography | Central Illinois Newborn Photographer

The title pretty much sums up this little man. He is just perfect.

I had the pleasure of meeting little {C} who is just starting a baby plan. I cannot wait to watch him grow.

His Mommy and Daddy are sooo in love with him. Can you blame them though?

Daddy was such a good sport, tolerating the scorching hot room and getting pooped on. :)

Look how happy he is in Mommy's arms.

{C} is probably one of the longest newborns I have ever photographed. He liked stretching out too. I think he was just showing off ;)

I love his delicate little back wrinkles, his smoochable lips, and his long eyelashes.

Chris and Ashley, thank you for having me photograph your little blessing. I am excited to begin his first year of portraits with you.

Enjoy your sneak peek and I will let you know when his gallery is ready.

The "G Man" is bringin those eyes back | Tina Ramirez Photography | Central Illinois Child Photographer

I can't believe it has been a year since I first photographed {G} for his newborn portraits. You can take a peek at them here

and then his 6mo portraits here

I just adore this little man and he just cracks me up every time I am around him.

He LOVES his Lego's and he's really good at putting them together. He is very coordinated and can build these huge towers. Makes me feel like I must be slacking with teaching Gianna to do these things.

Now here are those beautiful eyes that stop me in my tracks EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

Just hangin out with Dad :)

Enjoy your sneak peek Leigh Ann and Justin, more to come soon.

Elmwood's First Daughter | Tina Ramirez Photography | Elmwood, IL Newborn Photography

Move over Sasha and Malia, you've got nothing next to little miss {L}.

I posted one other portrait of {L} with her Mommy and Daddy here .

{L} is exactly what you would picture a perfect baby girl to be. She has perfect skin, tiny toes, luscious lashes and beautiful blue eyes. She was the perfect little sleeper too (after much convincing that nothing exciting was going on without her).

We started off the session wonderfully too. She got comfy and relaxed... then proceeded to prove to her Daddy why keeping extra shirts around is a great idea :)

I couldn't help but squeal a little with delight when Mommy brought out this adorable hat!

I love her tiny little toes poking out here.

Look at these lashes! Watch out Daddy, I have a feeling she is going to bat these suckers at you quite a bit when she wants her way :)

Just one because I couldn't wait | Elmwood, IL Newborn Photography

I couldn't help but post one up of little Miss {L}. She is so sweet and I just love this portrait. It makes me envious because I would have given an arm or leg to have a portrait like this with one of my kids.

Not only are the subjects wonderful, the light is so warm and soft.

Fabulous number 4 | Tina Ramirez Photography | Elmwood, IL Newborn Photography

I hear all the time, "Four kids, Wow, that's a lot." While I agree that 4 kids is quite a handful, there is nothing more surreal or humbling than when you plop on the couch at the end of the day, you look over at your husband and your 4 kids are all piled on the couch with you. It makes you take a deep breath in and thank God for such a wonderful blessing.

There truly is nothing like it and now Mollie and Rich know what I am talking about.

They have been blessed with gorgeous baby number 4, Miss A.

They chose to be surprised with the sex of the baby and big sis could not be happier at having a little sister.

She even gave me a little smile :)

Another miracle, getting 4 children to cooperate for a portrait. They did fantastic though. This portrait is a definite favorite in my book.

Soon to be, Mommy of 3 | Tina Ramirez Photography | Central Illinois Maternity Photography

My sweet cousin Amy has been blessed with 2 little boys.

She and hubby Bob are being blessed with a little girl this time. I am sure she will be just as beautiful as her momma.

Amy just looks STUNNING! I remember when she was pregnant with Jack and thinking about how pregnancy looks so good on her.

This is one of my favorites from the session. I LOVE Jack's face. He is so sweet and has that touch of boyish charm too.

I think Sam was just stunned that we were letting him play with paints and draw on mommy.

It was amazing how baby girl was kicking and moving while the boys were driving their cars over her. Either she wanted to play too or she wanted them to leave her alone.

Silly Bob thought he was all done with pictures after they got married. :)
That's what he gets for having a beautiful wife and adorable kiddos though.

Enjoy your sneak peek!
