I heart faces ♥ Hearts

It has been a while since I've entered an I heart faces challenge, but this one is close to my "heart". 

The baby boy in this womb is now 7 months old and has had 2 heart surgeries. To see pictures of him and read about his heart condition you can read his mother's blog Pray for John's Heart, just a warning - get a tissue box first. I have had the awesome privilege of documenting his life. This one is an oldie, but a goodie! You can see more of the pregnancy shoot here.

Little Miss Polly Pocket

"Polly Pocket" is what her doctor calls her. She gets cuter and cuter as she grows up!

Part 1:
Thinking outside of the box, as Baby L's mom (and sister, and grandma) always do, we headed downtown to some cool buildings. First, the library. The staff wasn't very welcoming, but they made an "exception" for us today. They have some great colors and the windows let is beautiful natural light.
Part 2:
Then we headed next door to one of my favorite buildings in Des Moines, the Masonic Temple. As we were getting baby girl ready we were chatting with some of the staff. He invited us to take pictures in the ballroom. When we got up there the employees welcomed us and let us stay up there to finish the shoot. After the way we were treated in the library we were pretty pumped!  
{ if you are looking for a place to do a reception or ceremony this place is rad & the staff is super nice }
Part 3:
And because the snow falling was so gorgeous we had to sit her in it as we were headed out to leave.

A Family from Milo

Sometimes kids don't want to cooperate, and even though it seems everything could possibly go wrong, beautiful pictures emerge.
