I’ve been taking pictures for this family for quite a few years, but this time there was something different… A new family member! Ever since I met this now Big Sister she has had a baby doll at every session. Also at every session we would talk about how badly she wanted a baby sister. So instead of a baby doll she got to bring a real baby – a baby brother! It’s not a sister, but I didn’t hear any complaints. If this little guy is as spunky as his sister Mom and Dad have their hands full. He is certainly just as adorable! I’m always so happy to be able to document families as they grow and this one is no exception! Congrats! You guys make some cute kids!!!
I had such a great time photographing this beautiful family! When I met them I was initially impressed by the sharp outfit choices. If you show up for a portrait session and your child has a pocket square in his jacket be sure that I’m going to get excited! It’s all in the details! The entire family had a great vibe and seemed very comfortable being in front of the camera. All these things make for a happy photographer! Since this maternity session the baby has been born!! Dad called and told me that not only has he been a dream for the nurses in the hospital but he has thee most beautiful eyes. I hope I get to meet this little dude! Congrats on the new arrival!! So happy that I was able to capture this happy time in your lives!
This little lady is just one year old, but in that little bit of time I’ve had the privilege of taking her portrait three times. Mom and Dad wanted newborn pictures, six month old pictures and now first birthday. They change so much in the first year. I can remember what she looked like at her newborn session sleeping in a little basket in her backyard. When I got to see her 6 months later she was so much bigger but still not ready to sit up. Now here we are at the one year milestone and she is sitting like a pro and even standing up. They may grow so fast in the first year, but it thankfully slows down a little in time. Smart Mom and Dad have very nice pictures to document this time so they will remember it forever.
I’ve had the absolute pleasure of photographing this little lady a couple of times now. Every time she has come to do photos she has brought her little dolly, Sasha. It makes sense that Sasha was included in all the family photos. At this point she is just that – one of the family. It’s nice when people decide to include personal elements like this in the photos session. So we had two parents, two dogs, one toddler and a doll. Somehow it all worked out and we got photos of everyone! It was that crazy Sasha who wouldn’t sit still for most of the photos. Such a diva.
I had the pleasure of meeting this family a couple of years ago at one of my mini shoots. These kids were adorable back then and they are even cuter now. I remember loving Mac’s hair at the mini. I was so happy that he was still rockin’ the do. I am a sucker for little boys with longer styled hair. It’s always the cutest. We had a great time taking photos at Colt State Park. Avery was the queen the poses. If her clothes came in my size I would have asked her where she bought them and gone to get the same outfit for myself. Autumn leaves, great light and great people can only equal a successful family portrait session.
