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.
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 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?
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!
She leaned in, touched his head, and whispered, "he is so beautiful." And then we all melted.
Caitlin and Andrew's love for each other was so easy to capture. As she walked down the aisle, as they took their portraits, as they cut the cake and listened to toasts.. I kept repeating to myself..."look at how he looks at her." Their wedding was a dream and I wish them both all the happiness in the world. #goodtobegreen
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!
Some of my favorite pictures of Shep are the unplanned ones. The moments when he is climbing on his chair and I grab my camera. There is obviously something to be said about formal or posed pictures. But my favorites will always be the outtakes.
One house. Two boys. I am so proud of this sweet friend and was honored to document the beginning of the next chapter in their lives.
I have SO enjoyed getting to watch him grow up. Every time I see him, he is a little taller and his adorable curls are a little longer. But, he is the same sweet boy that grins at my camera and talks about Paw Patrol. :)
As a photographer, there is something miraculous and inspiring about seeing my own child on the other side of the lens. It is even better when I bring in his Teddy and he giggles the entire time.
When we were getting to the end of his session, I asked if he was ready to be done. Surprisingly, he said that he was not done and we needed to take a few more pictures. So, of course, we took a few more pictures. ;)
One of my favorite things about photographing children and families is that I get to see and document the milestones. I get to see a family when they just had their first child. I get to see that child grow up. I get to see a family have their second child. I get to see the tiny bond that these brothers are already developing. It is amazing and a total blessing. I cannot wait until I am chasing both of these cute little guys around!
Catching up on blogging all of my Spring sessions has been so much fun! I love taking the time to look back on the world wind of sessions and really focus on the details of the shoots. This is the second time that I have met up with this super sweet family and the first time since they had their second little boy. I knew these few hours were going to be a blast when their oldest stepped out in suspenders and a seersucker suit!
