It was my first session with the two of them. We ran around A LOT but it was totally worth getting this adorable shots.
While I appreciate the posed shots, I love the raw emotion that comes with a lifestyle session. And when it comes to unscripted giggles, this session delivered in full. I LOVED meeting this sweet family.
I had a packed week. They had one day they could meet. We had 1 hour before the sun went down. What could have been a stressful session turned into so much fun. With giggles and running around, this sunset park shoot was amazing!
At her newborn session, I said that she was one of the prettiest babies I had ever photographed and that she could not get any cuter. Boy, was I wrong...
I always kind of laugh when people ask if it would be an imposition if they brought their dogs. For all future clients... yes, I ADORE taking pictures of dogs. Bring on all the puppies!
I always tell him that when he grows up and becomes a J. Crew model, I get some of the credit. But, I mean really... could he be any cuter?
This sweet girl's holiday session coincided with her first birthday week! I was so glad it did because it meant that I got to also shoot her 1st birthday outfit! Does not matter what she is wearing, this girl is always cute!
I have taken pictures of them since their oldest was tiny. So, it is very special to me to get to watch these girls grow up. They both have such cute personalities and I love capturing the fun bond that is already strong between them!
Do I have the cutest nephew and niece, or what?
One of my favorite parts of this job is getting to watch and capture the milestones of their childhood. I have taken pictures of him since he was a baby and I have loved every session with him since.
"Can I throw leaves? It would be so fun." Yes, when you look this cute doing it, you can absolutely throw leaves.
This sweet family is always a dream to shoot! They never fail to pick the most adorable outfits and I barely prompt them and they come up with this magic. Love it!
Plaid shirts, duck boots, and blue vests... pretty much a dream Christmas card shoot. And it wouldn't be a session with boys without one getting stuck in a stump.
These two. They giggled. They laughed. They played. It was so much fun!
Part family session. Part child session. Part newborn session. This shoot was so so so much fun! At the very end, they said they wanted one more set of pictures and pulled up an old car that the patriarch of the family build himself. Swoon!
She leaned in, touched his head, and whispered, "he is so beautiful." And then we all melted.
You know a session is going to be amazing when your subject knows what you are going to say before you say it. I got about half a sentence out every time before she would say, "Okay! Got it!"
What better way to honor all of the golfers in his family than to shoot his 1st birthday session on a golf course. Unfortunately, he did not share our enthusiasm when we popped on his custom birthday hat. However... we will be forever grateful to the greens keeper who just happened to drive by at that exact moment and stopped to make him laugh.
I know it is the 7th of July but I am still reliving the magic of the 4th. There is something about bbqs, fireworks, and the heat of Summer that takes me back to being a child. It is one of my favorite holidays and now I get to share it with my own child. I had a particular shot that I wanted to get of Shep with these American flag glasses. After two packs of puffs, his favorite toys, and bribing my husband to help, we (sort of) got the shot. The outtakes were hilarious so I thought I would share them here.
I have been taking pictures of James since his parent's adorable maternity shoot. So, it was a huge pleasure to take his 1st birthday pictures at one of my favorite places: the Birmingham Zoo!
