Barb and Goldie at home in Minnetonka, Minnesota.

Before we look at these images, can we just stop to acknowledge that Goldie is absolutely one of, if not THE, cutest baby name? That's just science. This particular cherub cheeked Goldie is named after her late great-grandmother (a hilarious, loving woman who also happens to be my great-aunt.)

One thing I appreciated in our session was how unabashedly Barb loves her baby. When I arrived she presented with me with Goldie and beamed in a way that said, "now tell me this baby isn't the greatest living thing on earth?" She may have also added, "now tell me this baby isn't the great living thing on earth?"
