Michelle had the spot all picked out when she approached me about doing her family’s portrait. Her family walks these woods all the time. Her husband actually used to go there when he was a kid. When she showed me some photos of the spot on her phone I thought “Yes!” Nothing is more beautiful than photos out in woods with the evening sun coming through the leaves. It’s up there on my personal ideal situations for photos list. Needless to say I had a great time photo-ing it up on the nature trail with everyone. I’m lucky that I get to discover so many cool new spots while I’m working!
This defines family portrait for me. I love this one! Even Cooper, the dog, is looking at me! I can’t ask for more than that.
Love a little girl with blue nail polish on!
The light was amazing! I walked by this spot and knew it would be photo magic.
Couldn’t choose between smiley or serious so I went with both!
Our last shots! To Michelle and the family, thanks for showing me around your family’s favorite spot! I had a great time.
Ben has probably doubled in size since I took these pictures back in May. His mommy wanted me to hold off on the blog until the birth announcements went out. I can relate – I don’t show anyone our Christmas card photo until the cards have been released. Finally I get to post pictures of this beautiful little guy! The ones I took of him and his big brother, Sam, are some of the cutest pictures ever…
I think Sam would have sat there all day with him brother if we had let him. He was so gentle…
And he beamed when I said he was a good big brother.
The most common thing I hear when someone contacts me about doing pictures is “I’ve never been able to get a good picture of him”, “She won’t sit still”, and the famous “You’ll have your work cut out with this one”. Well, little does everyone know I also have a baby that is impossible to get a nice photo of, but it does happen. Yesterday my oldest wasn’t home so I decided to take 10 minutes to try and get a nice picture of my little monster. Mission complete…
If you’ve been to my blog before chances are you’ve seen these two little guys. They are my best customers and two of my favorite kids to take pictures of. Recently they both celebrated their birthdays. Emma turned 5 years old and Nicholas is now 3! What better occasion to take some pictures than a birthday?
Outfit changes are always fun at a portrait shoot. Emma picked out this dress because it is so fancy – just like she is!
A portrait session with Nicholas would not be complete without his serious close up.
Here are some photos of little Abigail. I first took her picture last October when she couldn’t even walk. Then in February I did her first year portrait. She has changed so much in such a short period of time! I’m loving her new long hair. It looks so cute blowing in the wind. So beachy!
