This was my second time working with this family and I was so excited to meet Sam. Sam loved to be curled up next to his mama. I love photographing those moments where they prefer that to anything else... because I really miss them with my own little ones. I loved how much his big siblings loved him. They kept sneaking little glances and touching his tiny hands off and on throughout the session. Siblings always add an element of real life to the newborn session, and I think that's perfect. There is nothing better than when a little real life sneaks into a family shot <3 They are my favorites to look back on. As much as I love getting a nice family posed shot, there is something extra sweet about having one like this to smile at as the years go on.
I met Desmond when he was around one month old and he reminded me so much of his big sister at that age. He even wore one of the same outfits that she wore for her newborn session a few years ago. It's amazing how much change change in a few years! I really love arriving to a session and capturing those last few minutes of getting ready before we start. It gives kids a little time to adjust to having me in their home and we really capture some nice "real life" moments :)
I am always so honored when I have the opportunity to photograph families I know. I recently did newborn photos for my husband's cousin's family. Lindsay was so peaceful and totally content in her parents' arms. We photographed her in her nursery and other favorite rooms in their house - including the kitchen! In this session, I love the bright and airy images just as much as the moody black and whites. We spent a great afternoon together and I can't wait to see this sweet girl again!
I spent an unusually warm (almost 70 degrees!) November afternoon with this sweet little girl and her family. We decided to embrace the warmth and do some photos outside before moving inside. I absolutely love sibling photos and capturing natural interactions. R is a wonderful big sister and even shared a few leaves with little G.
I was so excited to wrok with this family again. I did Kate's maternity photos in the fall and it was so fun to see them again and to meet their new baby girl! Baby E was welcomed into such a loving family and has a big brother who totally adores her. I love capturing memories for families in their own home and am truely honored when they invite me in for a few hours of their day. Congrats again, B family!
I spent a wonderful morning with baby R and her family last fall. She was such a peaceful sleeper and loved being cuddled in mommy's arms. I am always so honored when clients welcome me into their home - especially newborn families! The first few weeks with a new baby are such a crazy, sleepless time. This new family of three was such a joy to work with and I can't wait to watch little R grow up!
I owe a huge thank you to all of the people who let me practice taking family portraits last year as I was building a portfolio and practicing photography sessions! Everyone was SO patient with me and I really had a great time capturing these images for everyone!
I loved spending the morning with this sweet family and their new baby girl. Their first baby girl wanted to be everywhere we were and even made it into a few of the shots! Baby O was so easy going and dozed off and on throughout the shoot. I love the variety of shots we were able to capture!
