Congrats Coleman…class of 2009!

a sneak peak –

Look as this sweeeeeet family…. ๐Ÿ™‚ Aren’t they precious!
They had about a 3 hour notice for this session…I had a rescheduled session on this day and thought what the heck…I’d just give them a call to see if they wanted to take this appt instead of waiting…She literally had 3 hours to get ready for it! And she even went shopping before the appt! Dayna, you rock!
Haven’t been able to work on your pics just yet…but, wanted to at least get a few sneak peaks done. Can’t wait to work on all of them!
Baby is so precious!!! and GORGEOUS eyes!
