Baby J wins the award for our most awake baby ever at the studio. People always ask “what do you do if the baby doesn’t sleep?” and I usually respond “well they all fall asleep eventually, so we create other shots during their awake time and go with the flow until they finally drift off.” Well, baby J proved me wrong. He actually was awake for an over 3 hour stretch! So here is a little peek at what we do when baby isn’t sleeping. Family shots, details shots, swaddles and sets. No you won’t catch baby J hanging from a branch, but you will fall in love with all of his beautiful little features and the love his family has for him.
Baby S and her family were so much fun to photograph last week. We always ask parents if there is any special theme or colors for the child’s birthday when planning our cake smashes. I love the challenge of coming up with something new each time. I was so excited to hear mom’s color choices. Something so fresh for us! Sweet Indulgence made the perfect cake to match and baby S loved digging in. She was on the go the whole start of the session until we put that cake in front of her! She clearly has good taste :0) Enjoy your preview!
Baby L was so good to us last week. He rocked not one, but TWO hanging shots! I’ve never had a baby breeze through two hanging shots before. L rocked it! And for the first time ever, dad held the stick rather than Shaun. But dad’s name was Sean too, so I was pretty sure it was meant to work. For anyone new to newborn photography, images like those are actually composites created in photoshop. Baby is always totally safe with plenty of hands around and we don’t even attempt it if baby is not in a very deep sleep! Thanks for the fun session L. Enjoy your preview!
Phew! This session was a whirlwind!! It was almost like 3 sessions in one! Family portraits posed and candid, individual portraits of the kids, and portraits of the 6 month old twins together and individually for their baby book… all in a little over an hour!! I’m proud to say we pulled it off and I love all portraits we created together. At 2 1/2 years old, big sister S loved the spotlight and was a natural in front of the camera. 6 month old little brothers E and J could barely keep up with all of the commotion, but each did eventually give me some smiles. I don’t know how mom and dad do it! Enjoy your sneak peek. Can’t wait to show you the rest of your beautiful family!
What a joy it was to photograph baby M again and catch up with mom. I giggle just looking at these because M was so full of smiles. Every time he saw his mama his whole face lit up. I had to capture some images of them together at the end of our session because of how sweet their bond was. I’m saving those for their final gallery though! Enjoy your preview! !
I remember as a kid hearing over and over “I can’t believe how big you’ve gotten.” “Where does the time go?” “I remember changing your diapers.” I’m sure every kid hears the same sayings, and can never understand until they have children of their own. I find myself outwardly repeating all of these cliches over and over these days. Because honestly, “WHERE DOES the time go?!”
It seems like yesterday that I held baby K in the hospital at only a few days new. I had the pleasure of taking her newborn portraits and then creating the family’s Christmas cards. And now here it is, already approaching her first birthday! With life getting busier and busier for both our families, I feel so lucky to be a photographer, because it means that many more times we are able to get together throughout the year! Can’t wait to show you all we captured together!
Baby C was so much fun to photograph! All he did was smile and laugh. Some babies really take a lot of effort when trying to elicit a smile. Not C! We were done with our session in record time because no matter where I placed him, I would peek out from behind my camera, and he would crack up! Just getting this preview ready had me smiling from ear to ear. Enjoy your sneak peek!
Oh baby E! This girl has kept me smiling since the day I met her. Just look at that face! I remember her being wide awake as a newborn. A social butterfly! At one year old she still steals the show. I was so thrilled to get back outdoors and shoot again last week. Even in the mid day sun we were able to capture some gorgeous images with the help of dad who gladly held the reflector for me. Thanks dad! I’m now really looking forward to all of our summer sessions at the park this season. Enjoy your preview!
If you’ve been following our blog since last spring, you may remember all of the newborn garden shots we created at the studio. Last week I finally felt it was time to break the garden out again! I went to the garden shop and picked out some beautiful pink tulips. We planted them in our garden box out behind the studio and rolled it in carefully. There was only one problem. We built walls inside the studio last fall. Walls with doorways. Doorways that apparently don’t fit our garden through them. But what about all of the beautiful tulips??? My heart was set on the picture I had in my mind. Shaun knew what was coming and got out of the studio. He couldn’t stand to watch. Five girls spent an hour wrestling with a rain soaked garden box that must have weighed a ton. Mud splashed on the floor and all over us. We tried lifting, pushing, even sawing part of the box off. There was only one solution. We had to take the door off the hinges and pry that door frame off. I was getting this picture!! And we did! And it was totally worth it! With a power sander and a little paint, our door will look like new again. But that picture will last forever.
And what about newborn baby A? She was absolutely gorgeous and gladly snuggled into the garden made just for her. I think she looks like a princess surrounded by all of those flowers! Enjoy your preview!
I just adored my shoot with baby C last week. She was perfectly relaxed and sleepy through out our session together. Mom and dad were beaming with pride and seemed like they had a lot of fun watching their little girl make her debut. This little one is surely a princess! Enjoy your preview!
