In case you haven’t had enough babies on my blog these past few weeks, here a double dose for you! These beautiful little babes are the perfect addition to this already family of three and came only weeks after Mom Lacey’s sister gave birth to her third baby, whose birth I photographed. Now each sister has three children and their momma (the grandma) got to add three grandchildren to her count in a matter of weeks! I can only imagine how insanely close these cousins are going to be and I might be a tad jealous!
As we speak, this mother is counting down the
days hours until Baby Girl makes her appearance! In the meantime, we had such a fun family/maternity session and I was honored to be their photographer for the second time in less than a year! Now they if would only move back home from Ohio so we can do this more often!
Babies, babies, and more babies! I remember the days when I swore I didn’t photograph babies, I didn’t want to – those days weren’t that long ago either – then I had a baby myself. Suddenly all I could do was photograph my son and it wasn’t long before I fell in love with photographing every single stage as he was going through it and all the stages that he would go through in the future.
Now, when friends and family members have babies, I hardly give the opportunity to ask me before I highly suggest we do a session – any kind of session. I just can’t get enough of babies! Like Little Baby Berkley who recently turned 6 months old. It feels like last week when I photographed Nicole’s maternity portraits, yesterday when I photographed Berkley’s newborn portraits and I’m already planning her one-year portraits!
With Katy & Bret’s wedding coming up in a few months, we started planning for their engagement session last week. We looked at a few dates during the end of August and beginning of September and moved on to selecting a location. Katy wanted a sunflower field and who am I to say no to a sunflower field?! Turns out were both thinking of the same field but little did we know that the blooms would start wilting within a week! Katy scrambled to find an outfit she loved and we landed on the next date that she and Bret both had off together. It was totally last minute but we made it work and I’m so glad we did!
Katy only had time to find one outfit and it was hot and humid so we decided to just do one location and only shoot for an hour. Because of the time of day and the fact the sunflowers need – you guessed it! – sun, I stepped out of my comfort zone and shot in full sun. And I have to say, I loved the practice! But then the sun began to set and the yummy light spread over the field and my photographer heart sighed.
Tiny Elven Fairy. That was (is?) her nickname during her first week earthside – don’t you think it suits her?
Baby Ariadne was just one week old when I photographed her newborn portraits. New-momma Emily’s milk had been in few a few days and baby girl had just figured out how to be milk drunk and therefore, was an awesome little model even when she was awake. I had such a hard time choosing which images to include in this blog post because I honestly love each and every one of them. They’re all keeps, and so is she!
