Little Emerson! Oh my gosh, so little!! Nothing shows off just how teeny tiny a baby like her Daddy’s hands. πŸ™‚

But first, here are the pregnancy portraits that we did just a few short weeks before the arrival of Emerson.

Mama with Emerson BEFORE . . .

. . . Mama with Emerson AFTER. They are BOTH smiling!

This is the image they chose for their wall portrait. Emerson is so content to be sleeping on her mom’s shoulder. Thank you Lisa and Matt for allowing me to be part of the major events in your life. I truly consider it an honor!



POOCHA PALOOZA 2013 Here at Alyssa Almeida Duncan Photography, we know
that when you have pets, they are part of your family. Don’t forget to have them photographed too. On May 17th and 18th getting your pet photographed will also benefit the NHSPCA!

Here are some portraits from previous Poocha Palooza events. In the past 3 years we have raised over 3000lbs of food for local shelters. This year let’s add another 1000 lbs to that! Sessions are limited so call today to schedule yours! Providing “doggie bags” filled with goodies are My Dogs Mind, Club Canine and Lafayette Animal Hospital.



I am so excited with these portraits -this is the start of my new fairy tale, fantastical phase.

This portrait of the two kids is just adorable. Their mom is behind me making them laugh (probably at my expense) πŸ™‚

We scheduled this session to perfectly coincide with the arrival of their new puppy, Koa. Oh my gosh, he is so floppy and adorable!

This image is one of my favorites from the session. It reminds me of a children’s book where there are fantastical creatures hiding behind the trees waiting to take Nicholas on an adventure . . .

Check out those eyes! Gorgeous! I just love the missing front tooth.
Thank you Daly family. You were all so much fun to work with.
