Baby C must have already been excited for Santa. In 2 1/2 years I’ve never had a baby who slept less! Mom was so patient nursing him over and over. Normally we can do a lot with an awake newborn…. bowls and baskets, knits and swaddles, and of course family shots. Eventually they all fall asleep. Baby C however had to be sucking on something or he was crying. We did trick him into a few shots. We would let him suck on something and then pull it out to quickly so we could take a few shots. He would let out a big roar and we’d quickly replace it!! We did that over and over throughout the session and thankfully managed to get all of mom’s most important shots. We even got a few where it appears C is sleeping. 2 1/2 year old big brother L was so patient and sweet the entire session. He and I played Mr. Potato head and colored for hours while we waited! I hope for mom that C was just having a growth spurt and he’s getting some more sleep these days! Enjoy your preview and happy new year to your beautiful family!
Oh brothers! In her pre-session questionnaire all mom said she wanted was a picture of both boys smiling, with eyes open, looking at the camera. Any parent of young siblings knows how hard that can be to capture! Well I’m happy to report we got it! It’s funny I took over 400 image at this session. Most consist of T squeezing R and R crying, or R smiling and T running out of the scene! haha Of course those all end up on the cutting room floor and only adorable shots like these make it into the final gallery. But, those outtakes do give me a good chuckle along the way! Enjoy your preview and your two beautiful boys mom!
This adorable little man celebrated his first birthday in style with a cake smash at our studio. Do I get to photograph the most beautiful babies or what? I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a baby boy with such a fabulous wardrobe! Mom and I had fun with all of the outfit changes and of course the cake smash with our Sweet Indulgence cake was hysterical. Enjoy your preview!
J and her family came in the week before Christmas for her maternity session. J was the epitome of “glowing”. She looked amazing in her pregnancy and had the most beautiful profile. We captured some classics in the studio and then braved the cold for some outdoor portraits. The photos below where we incorporated the bench dedicated to J’s husband are my favorite from the shoot. There is a light to those photos I can’t quite put my finger on ;0) Enjoy your preview J. Can’t wait to hear your good news!
A and M visited the studio just before Christmas and after meeting them, I know Santa must have been good to them both. They were both so sweet and fun capture on camera. Their beautiful blue eyes stole every scene. Enjoy your sneak preview F family!
Baby R was an adorable newborn from early in December. Like just about all of our December newborns, she started the session wide awake! Don’t you just adore those eyes. She did drift off to sleep of course and we captured some beautiful portraits of her all curled up. Enjoy your preview!
We are so excited for our mini sessions today! Just when we were beginning to get caught up with the holiday rush, Heidi looked at her calendar and saw that there would be some free time this week to shoot some minis. Remember that friend in college who just couldn’t enjoy her vacation after finals, instead took a winter course or interned? That would be Heidi.
In order for things to run smoothly we set up some classic neutral sets from some of our favorite shoots and wanted to share a sneak peek. No wide angle lens on hand today but here are a couple photos of what the studio looks like today. The mattress with our IKEA canopy is something new but we love how the images are turning out and plan on keeping it here permanently.
These Pottery Barn curtains are also brand new. With the sun so low in these winter months it gets very bright in here. Also with the glare from our snow, we didn’t want to risk having squinty eyes, but they also make the room feel cozier don’t you think?
And a sneak peek of our first session from today – adorable 4 1/2 year old and 6 month old siblings who loved jumping on the bed!
If you are interested in doing a mini session but couldn’t book with us before the spaces filled up, we will be announcing new dates on the blog February 1st. One of our new years resolutions here at the studio is to post a monthly newsletter… EVERY month. Sign up if you haven’t already and we promise you’ll be the first to hear about our specials and next set of minis before we post it on the blog.
Our session with baby W had a bit of a slow start, but turned into a really great session! He and his big brother were both so charming and sweet! It was getting late in the day by the time we started getting the portraits we were going for, but with the new film we put on our windows, we still had plenty of great light to work with. Have a very Merry Christmas with your beautiful boys mom and dad! Enjoy your preview :0)
4 1/2 month old A was such a smiley little sweetheart! She flashed a giant gummy smile at just about everything we did. We were able to capture some beautiful family portraits with a candid feel for mom and dad, and then some adorable portraits of A herself, stealing the show! Enjoy your preview K family.
3 previews coming your way before Christmas and this is the first! E looked absolutely amazing during her maternity and it was fun capturing her beauty. Merry Christmas and I can’t wait to hear your good news!
