I just love my job! It gives me the opportunity to meet so many new people and families. It also puts me in contact with little tiny babies! It isn’t everyday that you get to hold a newborn. Thankfully I get to hang out with my fair share of them otherwise I might have seven children instead of just two. This little girl was about three weeks old when we did her portrait session. She was so sweet and patient with me and her mom putting her in baskets, boxes, a wagon, dressing her up as a bunny, sticking bows on her head… She didn’t make a peep and happily went along with the craziness that we put her through. The result is some really adorable pictures she’ll have for a lifetime.
There is nothing that means more to me than a loyal client and you can’t get more loyal than this family. Think of a milestone in any family and I’ve been there to capture it for these guys. Engagement, Marriage, Pregnancy, First Baby, Holidays, Family Portraits, First Birthday… Yup I’ve done all those sessions for them. They’ve stuck with me as their family photographer. I feel the utmost gratitude to them for this. It is truly an honor. Yesterday I was called in again to take photos of their newest baby, Evie! When Mommy texted me a couple of months ago saying that she was getting her girl I was beyond excited!! I knew there were high hopes for a baby girl this time and that dream came true! Big brother, Caleb, has to share the spotlight now. He has gotten a pretty big spotlight thus far so there is enough to go around. This is a wonderful family with so much love! A big congrats to Mike and Meredith!!!
A couple of months ago a client suggested the War Memorial Park as a spot for their family portrait. Since then I’ve been back a bunch of times! It’s a beautiful little spot that has so many great places for photos. Recently I returned to the park for little Leo’s first birthday photos. Mom and Dad brought some great props for the pics that included balloons, a pumpkin, and a great sign that had all facts about Leo. We chased Leo all over the place taking photos and just having a great time! It was the perfect fall portrait session!
When this cutie pie came to my office she had an entire posse with her. Mom and Dad were there along with Grandma and her Auntie. It’s obvious this little girl is adored by her family. No one wanted to miss the chance to see her dive into her cake for the big finale of our session! She did not disappoint. Once the cake came out it was all buiness. She carefully started taking off frosting, eating it, and then when there was too much on her hand she would basically whip her little fingers around until it was gone. What a mess, but as always it’s worth it for the photos! – Cake by Cake-tique
This is my first cake smash session with twins! We had two separate cakes for each birthday baby. After doing some family photos we dove right in to those cakes made as always by Lauren at Cake-tique. Ladies usually go first, but we decided to have little man try the cake smash experience before his sister. Looking back maybe we might have switched it. We thought he was going to make a huge mess, but Brother did not like the cake very much. His sister on the other hand showed him how it was done. She posed. She smiled. She ate cake. Even though he maybe doesn’t have a sweet tooth I still got some great shots of her brother in his little blue tie and diaper cover. I think Mom and Dad should make sure to show every future girlfriend these photos and tell them all about the cake smash torture!!
