I trust Christmas was a wonderful day spent with family and loved ones. I hope it was centered on Jesus birthday so long ago. My family had a wonderful and special day. I’m looking forward to a New Years Eve spent with my husband and three girls having a movie night and staying off the roads. Here was our Christmas card this year. I’ll be sharing more client cards as well as soon as I peel them off the window. 🙂
I knew going into this session that the mom would have a plan for props and poses. For her son we did a football jersey, golf club and a variety of other items. So, I brought all my girlie props with me and just as I expected, she had a stack almost as big as mine. Grandma had bought her this crown. Seriously, how adorable is that?! All around, she was a very cooperative (aka sleepy) newborn!! I love these shots below!
This is one of my clients I met a couple years ago. Our first session was with their older daughter, who was 3 months old. The parents didn’t get newborn pics with her, but they decided to do it with their second daughter. I’m glad they did! Newborn sessions, in my opinion, are ones that should NEVER been skipped. Babies never will look that way again and they change so quickly that the moment needs to be captured! Isn’t she just sweet and adorable!
Boys will be boys! The older boy here didn’t really want much to do with pics. I do find that very common with boys in the age range of 18 months to about age 3. To avoid making them cry or throw a fit, I think the best thing is to just catch them playing. I love the shot of him on the Big Wheel. His face has a genuine smile because he was not being posed; I just caught him. The same often goes for babies. This 3 month old was happy, but not super smiley, until the mom started doing the small tosses into the air. That face is so sweet too!
I’ve photographed this family before and the mother told me at this session, “This year I went for color!” I immediately told her that she got it right. I love the color combos here, not to mention how adorable these three are. They were so cooperative that I could hardly believe it. Not to mention they were at their best friend’s house and they all just wanted to play. More from the other family and the besties together coming in the next post!
I must be honest and say, I love my loyal clients who I have the privilege of capturing over and over again! Look at this family! They are completely beautiful and the little girl is so sweet. They are all around amazing to work with. Here’s another bit of info…One of my clients saw a photo I had on display of this family and thought the mom was ME with blond hair. Well, thank you VERY much for that huge compliment, she is gorgeous!!
