When Katie inquired about a newborn session, she mentioned that it was, "just us and our newborn and our small dog who we hope can make it into a few pics." Big sister Hershey wiggled her way into most of the photos and it was pretty adorable. I loved working with this family and hearing about all of the details that went in to making the nursery such a special place. When you first have a baby, your are so overwhelmed with your love for them and I just love to capture it so you can hold on to that feeling forever <3
Izzy recently turned six months and I was excited to see her again and do a milestone mini session to capture this time. Six months can bring a lot of changes! They had moved into a new home and she was a strong sitter with the most beautiful, curious eyes. We had fun playing with some of her favorite toys!
At the end of last summer, I did a Mommy & Me Newborn session with a beautiful mama and her two boys. Big brother was super sweet with the new little guy and he loved relaxing with his mom and helping to take care of the baby. Their family was in the midst of a move, so while I enjoyed capturing a bunch of "clean" images, I had to take one with the HUGE stack of moving boxes mom had been working on packing all week! Supermom for sure!!! She's also a talented local photographer so we had fun talking shop as well ;)
It's amazing how quickly the first year goes. I did James' newborn photos a year ago and I was excited to catch up with him again now that he is a walking one-year-old! He was one of the smallest babies I'd ever held so I couldn't believe how big he was today! His 1st birthday party was over Memorial Day weekend and I loved capturing all of the little details that went in to the party. The kids absolutely loved the music and the start of summer fun :)
I had the best time working with Henry and his family for his "newborn" session. He was technically nearly 12 weeks old, but he was the most relaxed baby ever! He was so content during his session and while he loved being held by both of his parents, you should see the eyes he had for his mama <3. My photography sessions are a mix of lifestyle and documentary. I do a little bit of posing, but the moments that really mean the most to me are the ones that happen between the more "posed" images. Years later, when you look back at the images from your session, I want them to take you right back to that day. Because, these days sure do go by too quickly.
I spent a wonderful morning with this new family of three a couple of weeks ago! Mom and Dad were so full of love for this sweet little guy.
I loved meeting this family and working with little baby J. He may have been the tiniest baby I've ever seen! His parents were head over heels in love with their new addition and I'm pretty sure their sweet dog was, too!
I met up with the F family on a freezing cold day in February. Luckily, we picked an indoor location for D's two year old photos! D had so much fun exploring the exhibits at the Please Touch Museum and taking some pictures along the way. I had a lot of fun playing with various lighting situations and love the variety of images we were able to capture. Happy 2nd birthday, D!
