I’ve photographed this little girl three times now, once for her newborn portraits, then when her adoption was official around 6 months, and now at a year! She’s such a beautiful child with the most loving parents! I’m so blessed to be able to photograph them. I can’t wait to show you all more of this cuteness!
Introducing… My Nephew!! I was so thrilled to be able to cuddle with this little guy for a while and capture him in all his newborn glory. This is just a sneak peek of what is to come!
This sweet, sweet, little man was such a great sleeper! He was just so calm and happy awake or asleep! And, he has an adorable big sister with the most beautiful eyes. She was so sweet and gentle with her little brother, it was adorable watching her with him! It was great to work with this family and capture these fleeting moments.
Kristin came to me from a local mommy forum, The Mommy Nest. She had won a giveaway and decided to use the session for her daughters 1yr portraits and to get some portraits of her and her children as well. As moms, we all know how LITTLE we are in the pictures at home… I practically have to beat my husband over the head to get him to take a picture of me with the kids. So, I was more than elated that she wanted to join in on the fun and be a part of the session. She is an absolutely sweet and beautiful momma.
The weather had warmed up enough in March for us to do the session outside, so we had some fun just walking around, playing, and exploring.
At the end of the session, we broke out some cake and let little Kylie go at it! (Don’t worry, our GQ man Colton got a special treat too on the side lines during the cake smash… he’s such a sweet big brother.)
It’s amazing how much can change in a month… at our session Kylie wasn’t walking quite yet and when I dropped off their order… she was running around with her big brother! I’m glad we were able to catch some of the wobbly first steps as that phase passes way to quickly!
Oh, and moms… when I ask you to dress up for your child’s session… it’s for a reason. You deserve to be in front of the camera too.
Today is May 1st, so I am sending to my friend, family, and the rest of the world a very happy May Day!
You may not know this about me, but I am half French. It is a French tradition to give Lily of the Valley’s to loved ones on May 1st. This year, my mom isn’t close to me, so I wanted to make sure I captured her Lily of the Valley’s for her to share with her friends and family…. and I thought I would share with you too!
Happy May Day my friends!!
And a very special May 1st to a photography friend of mine who is in labor today! (Ironically, it’s also Europe’s Labor Day.)
