There is nothing more joyful than photographing the baby of someone I have known a long time! Baby W's mom grew up next door to me and my sisters. I love seeing her as a mom to this sweet baby boy! He was such a happy little baby and we had so much fun with him. Looking at these photos brighten my day!
I love, love newborn sessions. It is so special to be let into someone's home when they have just had a baby. I photograph babies when they are 5-7 days old so they are brand new! I love the process of coaxing little ones to sleep and capturing every sweet, new thing about them. Babies change so fast so capturing these first days are so priceless. Every newborn session is different based on the baby. Well Baby K was a rockstar! She was amazing during her session. I got so many sweet photos of her and I love them all so much!
I love these adorable photos I took of my cousins at Wargo's Pumpkin Patch. It was such a perfect fall day. I know I am biased but I think they are two of the cutest kid. We had so much fun taking photos, picking out pumpkins, eating ice cream and taking a hay ride. Leave some love for them in the comments.
I love photographing sweet newborns. Every time I take photos of babies in their first days of life I feel it is so special. I am capturing a fleeting moment that the parents will remember the rest of their lives. I am taking photos that the kids will look at as their parents tell the stories of how their lives were changed forever. I feel it is a huge responsibility and an honor to capture these family heirlooms. Every newborn shoot is very special to me. But I must admit out of the many wonderful newborns I have photographed this was the most special. I have a very large extended family since my paternal Grandfather and Grandmother came from very large families. My Grandparents had one son and one daughter and within this immediate family my cousin was born 23 years ago. And that was the last baby in our immediate family until sweet baby Kalynn was born to my cousin. She is kind of a huge deal in our family! Kalynn was so good for her newborn session and slept most of the time. But she also was awake so we could see her pretty blue eyes. She is just the sweetest baby ever! I really love these photos of my cousin and his family! I hope you enjoy them too.
My last photo shoot of 2013 was on a freezing cold day. But the M family were amazing and you can't even tell from the photos how cold it was! We started at the beautiful Line Creek Nature Area. Even in the middle of winter it is beautiful with the lake, trees and creek. Aubrey is the sweetest little six month old! She was so happy and obliging the whole day. She is one of those babies that just captures your heart and doesn't let go. Her adorable smile just made me melt. which is pretty hard to do when it is 30 degrees outside! We went back to my home studio to take some holiday themed photos with warm Christmas lights. It was a perfect day with an amazing family!
I have enjoyed photographing important moments in this beautiful family from wedding, maternity and newborn. I can't believe Addi is already three months. She is so precious and looks like a little angel. She was very proud of her pretty Easter outfit and loved snuggling with her mommy and daddy. I enjoyed every minute I got to spend with Leslie, Nick and Addi. I am already looking forward to our six month shoot!
