Paige, who recently turned three, was more than thrilled to get outside and enjoy a beautiful spring day and get her pictures taken. I loved watching her bounce around from flowers to rocks to trees and onto the next exciting thing. This little girl was excited about it all. Picking up dandelions and then of course dropping them so she could then pick up more was on the agenda, and she looked so adorable doing it. Paige’s mom even brought a bubble maker which made for some great shots. What’s better than a child with bubbles? This session was truly a fun one – enjoy this playful preview!
I’ve been photographing Easton since he was about four months old and he recently turned one. What better way than to celebrate with a little cake smashing!? He’s always been so great in front of the camera with that adorable smile and at this session he was no different. It’s been great to see him grow and it was a lot of fun to watch him celebrate this milestone!
It was such an honor to be invited to Aeden’s first birthday party, no less the photographer for the day. It’s always fun to capture a child’s first moments, cake smashing and present thrashing. What made it even more special for me was that I’ve been taking photos of Aeden since he was a tiny newborn, so to see him hit one year is so amazing.
In the photo above, you can just get a glimpse of one of Aeden’s newborn photos, which I though was a good idea to have out so guests could see how he’s grown. And, mom and dad made a staircase banner of photos from the entire year- great job!
This t-shirt was a really cute idea (because we all know there’s some truth to it for all first-time parents).
I love these last three photos because they are great little moments that tell the story of the day. Aeden had so much fun and mom and dad did a wonderful job on the party.
I recently photographed a family including their new addition of a beautiful baby boy. They were all so much fun to photograph, along with their seven pound dog Duncan. I love including dogs in my sessions, and once he warmed up to me a little (and saw I had treats), he was a peach and adorable to boot. We got a variety of family shots, and some of the kids smiles were priceless. Such a wonderful group they were…here are a few to enjoy.
Last week I met Natalee and photographed her, her big sister as well as mom and dad, which was a lot of fun. Natalee is the first session I booked since being back after having our son, who allowed me to get some decent sleep the night before, so I was only moderately sleep deprived. Natalee was very curious about all the props mom brought, including some that were Christmas themed, but she couldn’t keep those peepers open for long. That’s when my job started and she did great sporting a few cute headbands in her birthday suit.
Dad is a military man, so we set up this photo which will be a nice keepsake for the family.
I turned around and out the window I found dad and big sis playing outside while Natalee was wrapping up. Time for the family photo!
