The New Blog: http://www.jensoares.com/blog/

Dear loyal followers and friends,

The time has finally come to say goodbye to JSP's "starter home." After 4 lovely years and some incredible memories, we're moving to a new blog. A blog that will better showcase all of the fun, laughter, cuddles and special moments. A happier space that better embodies my point of view. Will it have flaws...the occasional spelling error, random personal anecdotes and an over-abundance of Dorey photos? Yeah, probably. Like I said, it'll be more "me."

So, from today on, come visit us at our new place: http://www.jensoares.com/blog/

I'm already excited to see you there.

- Jen

Introducing Celeste

The moment I heard that Kim and Steve had named their new baby girl Celeste, I knew we'd have a special connection. Celeste is my Mom's name and I have a hugely warm place in my heart for it. This little one certainly didn't disappoint. She rocked her first photo shoot last week. Celeste was wide awake through a few fun wardrobe changes, some cuddling with Mom and Dad and sibling time with big brother Sebastian. Even Gizmo the dog joined in the family fun. Congratulations again on your beautiful new addition, Kim and Steve. It is such an honor for me to watch your family grow.

Happy Birthday Evyn!

Last week, I had the pleasure of taking Evyn's 1-year photos on her actual birthday. I just love it when that happens! I got a huge kick out of documenting all of Evyn's favorite activities: eating Cheerios in her "snack chair," playing with her stuffies and toys, reading her books with mom and dad and showing off her mad standing and walking skills. We also had some birthday-specific fun with balloons and tutus and cupcakes. I've never actually seen a 1-year-old completely finish their birthday cupcake...but then again, it was Sweet Mandy B's. Evyn and I are clearly in agreement...they are the absolute best! Happy Birthday, little one, and congratulations on a year full of love and happiness, Ali and Jason!

Happy Birthday Henry!

I love it when we get to see our little birthday boys and girls on their actual birthdays. It's always so much fun to capture the excitement of their big days. Last Saturday, our friend Henry turned one. Before his birthday bash, Mike and I came over to take a few family photos with his mom and dad, three adorable pups and adoring grandparents. We couldn't get over how fast Henry has turned from a baby into a little boy. He was all smiles for us and we just couldn't get enough. Thanks for a great time, Marty and Rob, Grandma Helen and Grandpa Gregg!

Kelly and Andrew wanted to capture their baby girl, Penelope's, sweet 6-month-old personality, and it definitely wasn't hard to do. Penelope rocked her photo shoot last week, giving me smiles and showing off several adorable looks. She even posed with her furry rabbit friend, Chloe. It was so nice to meet you, Kelly and Andrew. Thanks for a great time!
