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 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?
Do I have the cutest nephew and niece, or what?
"Can I throw leaves? It would be so fun." Yes, when you look this cute doing it, you can absolutely throw leaves.
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!
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!
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.
