Our niece Kaylee just turned 1 last week. A couple weeks before her first birthday I headed up to shoot Kaylee’s first birthday and cake smash session. We were able to hang out in the back yard and shoot these. Prue and my Dad came up with me and they can both attest to the fact that Kaylee didn’t stop moving for a second. She was all over the yard, crawling and climbing on everything. Even with all the craziness I was able to capture some great images of her. It just kept me on my toes. After we did some regular portraits we busted out the little birthday cake & Kaylee went right after it. She had a great time playing and eating it (Prue also enjoyed a little cake after Kaylee was finished).
Introducing Mr. S :) Congrats to Jen & Jason on the birth of their little nugget. I got to hang out with baby S a couple of weeks ago. This little guy did an awesome job sleeping & it was warm enough when we did he session that we were able to shoot these outside in their yard. Luckily Jason was able to make it home from work before we were finished and we were able to capture a few photos of the new family. I love shooting newborns because it gives me a chance to snuggle on tiny little babies. Luckily the moms don’t usually mind :)
Enjoy your preview Jen & Jason. The proofs will be posted asap!
This one with him trying to suck on his fingers…my fave! This one would make a great large print or standout hung in their home. Who wouldn’t love to see this photo everyday? I love how Jen & Jason are looking at S, you can see the joy on their faces!
I met little Illah last week. She is an adorable little lady who did a great job sleeping during most of her session (She was only 11 days old for our session which is perfect!). We got to play around with a few accessories, some headbands & hats. I love baby girls for that reason, there are so many cute things you can use for a newborn photo session. I still need to add to my props for both girls & boys, but boys especially (hint, hint Mel). I also love sessions that are more lifestyle, and are just capturing the baby and all the special moments, so I want to make sure I do more of that during my newborn sessions. Enjoy the images!
