Gorgeous baby A came to visit the studio this week and her session was one of my favorite 3 month old sessions to date! She was A: Gorgeous, B: So happy, and C: Incredibly adored by her parents. We focused the session on capturing their family bond and of course had to snap a few of just A herself. As you can see, she’s the steals the show!
I had such a good time photographing this family last week. Baby K’s session was perfect from beginning to end. She was such a gorgeous, joyful little girl. She was the perfect cake smasher as well. She didn’t really eat the cake. She just played with it and smiled away for the camera! Enjoy your preview!
Do I have the most adorable clients or what?! I knew the second H showed up to our studio and gave me a giant smile through those big blue eyes that we were in for some fun. H was so easy going that we were able to try out lots of fun sets. Usually the larger flower bands aren’t my favorite to use, but I think in sets like these they look so stinkin cute and the two mom picked were some of my favorite! No matter what we put H in, those big blue eyes always stole the show anyways. I can’t wait to show mom and dad the rest of these!
Baby R is just breathtaking! Those eyes can slice right through you. At only days old, R stared right into my camera with those eyes. So alert. So beautiful!
My favorite part of this job is watching babies grow. I love when parents visit us again for 6 month and first birthday sessions! R’s 6 month session was a blast. She was full of smiles and personality! 6 months is also a great baby age to capture family portraits. Often parents of newborns are so tired, the last thing they feel like doing is jumping in front of the camera. I just love what we captured during this session. Can’t wait to show you them all!
Remember this fun couple?
Well, their gorgeous baby girl is already turning one year old! She was so much fun to photograph last week. Her aunt and grandmother came too and helped me get some great big smiles! Can’t wait to show you the full gallery ladies. Keep an eye on your email mom!
Do I have the best clients or what? I just loved C and her family. They had the best style, were so fun to work with, and completely gorgeous! C was full of smiles our entire session. While she loved her cake, she didn’t appreciate having to get messy. Already a lady! As long as we were singing and clapping however, she was smiling all the same. Enjoy your sneak peek and keep an eye on your email mom and dad for your full gallery today!
How gorgeous are these two sisters?! 3 and 1 can be a pretty tough combo to photograph but I must say, this session flew by. We breezed through each set so that we could squeeze in family portraits, sibling portraits AND a cake smash – all in one session! The girls were so good throughout! They loved playing with all of the different props and my antique typewriter was definitely a favorite. Here is just a peek mom and dad… your full gallery will be going up today!
6 month olds make me so happy! How could you not smile looking at this gorgeous face? Baby J was so sweet and happy. I have something else that will make mom and dad smile…. your gallery is going up today! Yup, we’re running about a week EARLY with galleries for the first time ever thanks to my fabulous editors! Enjoy :0)
Usually when I meet new people and tell them my profession, the first thing they say is “you must have so many beautiful photos of your daughter!” Truth be told, I don’t. The ones I do have however are cherished. They are proudly hung in our home and they bring a smile to my face every. single. day. With life moving so quickly I have to make a real effort to take portraits of my own family. While I finally hired a portrait photographer to take our family portraits this summer (go me!), with G’s 3rd birthday already approaching I decided I had to schedule a shoot in my own calendar or she’d be in preschool (gasp!) before I got her back in front of my lens.
I’m so happy I did.
I am in love with this session. I am in love with this girl. These portraits are the first time I’ve looked at her face and the thought “my girl” replaced “my baby.”
Don’t get me wrong. I was tired after shooting all day. My wrist hurt from editing. The enthusiasm for this set that I had while shopping had long since past and I’ll be really lucky if my body isn’t covered in poison ivy in 48 hours. And let’s not forget that 6pm is not a toddler’s most stellar time of day by any means. But I sit here looking at these images and I feel like I did the impossible. I sit here mesmerized by them. The thought “my girl” is replaced by “my angel.” I captured something intangible. And I feel it every time I look at them. And I will forever.
And I’m so happy I did.
Guess what my favorite age to photograph is? If you’ve visited my blog before, you have probably heard it many times. 6 months is just the best. Smiley, happy, chubby, adorable baby goodness. If there were only one other time you could have your baby photographed after their newborn session, I would recommend 6 months old hands down. When looking at the super-cute portraits of baby L below you’ll see why. It is the perfect age to capture all of their baby features before they start quickly growing into a toddler. During our session together baby L was sometimes quite serious and other times full of smiles, so we were able to get many wonderful expressions. He was so intrigued by my camera and entertained by mom and dad! I had so much fun photographing this little one and his parents. Enjoy your sneak peek!
