This is such a sweet, precious family! They are always so kind and easy-going. We've had the pleasure of capturing several milestones in their lives, including their wedding day and Oscar's newborn session. Babies grow up so fast and it's so important to have photos to look back on. These memories are truly priceless. Before too long, we'll be doing Oscar's 1 year session!
I really enjoyed photographing this fun, vibrant and beautiful family. It's always a compliment when a fellow photographer asks me to photograph their family. It can also add a little more pressure, but they were so easy and laid-back to work with and just let me do my thing. My favorite shots are the natural, improptu shots of the girls running around having fun and shots of the family interacting together naturally. There were plenty of those types of shots and I had a very hard time narrowing it down to just a few to share. One of my favorite shots is this last picture after we got done with the family shots, Peyton ran up to me, clearly trying to "steal the show" with that beautiful smile of hers. I also love the shots of dad picking tiny yellow flowers with little Amelia. I love getting to create priceless memories for families and it's great to receive feedback like I received from this client: "I absolutely adore the pictures! You captured my little family perfectly."
Miss Genevieve was bright-eyed and busy-tailed at the beginning of her newborn session, but we were finally able to convince her to go to sleep. :) It's not always the easiest thing to capture great photos of a newborn with the toddler sibling but big brother was very good and I think we captured some sweet moments of the two of them together that I'm sure they will treasure when they're older. :) Welcome to the world, sweet girl!
I can't say enough nice things about this family! We've been capturing all their milestones for them since their wedding. We've had the pleasure and honor of doing all of Gracelyn's newborn and baby photos. She's officially no longer a baby, but not to worry... This family will soon have another sweet baby! We couldn't be happier for them and look forward to more photo sessions with them. :)
Christian has quickly become one of my favorite little subjects to photograph. This is the third session I've had with her so far. She usually makes us work a little bit for those big smiles, but it's so worth it! My favorite memory from this session is how her dad would sing to her to get her to smile. I thought it was so cute the intent look she would get on her face looking at her dad when he started singing "Nothing on You" by Bruno Mars. If you don't know the lyrics, look them up. :) Christian made the cutest Easter bunny I've ever seen! Can't wait for her 1-year session.
Norah was such a sweet and cooperative little girl for her newborn session! She came to the studio at 3 weeks old which is a little older than we usually recommend (we recommend doing newborn sessions at 5-10 days old) but she was such a good little sleeper that it didn't matter. We were able to capture some beautiful shots that hopefully her family will cherish for years or even generations to come!
I don't think you could hope to meet a sweeter (or more photogenic!) couple than Brittany and Brandon. We met up at Moss Rock Preserve for their maternity session. It was the perfect day! It had been raining like crazy a few days before and it had also been very cold, but on the day of the session it was the perfect temperature and all the rain from the previous days created a beautiful waterfall! It's always such a blessing when things like that fall right in place for a photo session. They have been such a pleasure to work with and I can't wait to meet and photograph their precious baby girl!
Have you ever seen a prettier family or more handsome baby boy?! This family was such a pleasure to work with. It's always great to work with families who share your vision for great photos and will hang in there with you until we're able to "get the shot." It usually takes a little time and patience but it's well worth it!
Sarah Jane was such a sweet baby for her newborn session! The photos with her big brother (age 2) are some of my favorites from this session. I love it when we're able to successfully get some great photos of newborns with their older siblings. It may look easy, but when there is a toddler involved, it can be a little challenging. I think that's one thing I love about my job though. It's definitely never boring!
I don't think I've ever seen a cuter little baby! I was a little concerned when she first came in to the studio because I couldn't get her to smile, but as soon as we got ready and she saw me pull the camera out, she was nothing but smiles.. Gotta love that! I absolutely LOVE the little handmade outfits her mommy brought for her. Cameron did great for her newborn and 6 month session and I can't wait for her 1 year session. :)
