I loved this family! They were so in love with their baby boy and made such a great team! I love working with families but I really love working with first time parents. There is just something different about how they handle their baby and just gush over every sound and move. I love it!! This little guy was so adorable with all that hair but loved hanging out with his eyes wide open. It was a little bit of work to get through this session but we did it! 😉 Welcome to the world baby Lucas!!
I did sitter mini-sessions back in April to raise money for my daughter’s Destination Imagination team to go to globals. It was so much fun and I loved getting to see so many babies that I had done newborn photos for. They were all SO adorable!!
I don’t do older baby sessions anymore but I sure do love them! This baby girl’s aunt booked this session last December. A lot of people ask why I don’t do older baby sessions anymore. I really do love them and love how the pictures turn out but it requires packing up a lot of things in my car, driving to a location, scouting out some good spots, hoping for good weather and good light and then hoping that the baby isn’t cranky since the best time to do a session is just before sunset, the time when most babies are ready for bed. It’s so much easier to only do newborns in my studio where I know the light and the best time of day. I don’t have to go anywhere and I can get things set up exactly how I need for them to be. And I love it so very much! But this session did make me second guess my decision to specialize only in newborns because this girl was SO cute and so cuddly with her momma and grandmother! Who knows, maybe one day I’ll go back to doing everything but for now, it’s just newborns.
I got to see this cute little man this past weekend! I did his newborn pictures so it was so great to see him and his parents again! He’s the happiest baby ever with the chubbiest thighs! Oh my…so cute! I have decided to do sitter sessions now, if I have an open date the month of. I won’t be booking them more than a month out since my main focus is newborns. If my month isn’t booked with newborns, I can do sitter sessions!
This past weekend I did mini-sessions for my moms’ group for the older babies. I hadn’t done a session for the moms in a long time so it was time! I decided back in December that I was only going to do newborn sessions but now I’m thinking maybe I might do sessions for sitters. I loved these! I just need to work out how I’m going to do them and I will post something so be on the lookout!
