I don’t think it is even possible to add words to this blog post….Her portraits speak for themselves!
Thank you so much Julz! I loved our session together and you are just so fun and so gorgeous! Enjoy your senior year!
Everyone decided to make the trip to Studio 217 to celebrate this little girl’s birthday! We also grabbed some great large family portraits of them as well!
Can you tell that this little girl is just loved SO much!
We headed back into the studio to sing, listen to music, chase, play peek-a-boo, and basically try anything to keep this little busy bee happy!
I haven’t seen this little one since her first birthday…it was a pleasure to see how much she has changed and it was great to meet everyone else in her family <3
I was honored to be invited into this family’s lovely home to hang out and make some super special pancakes! With four little kiddos, this mom and dad have their hands full! But the love and fun they have sure surpasses the chaotic times <3
We dumped, mixed, laughed and tasted a bit of everything.
Now came the TEST…
And I think they approve! They asked for seconds!
Now that all those bellies were getting full, dad had time to sit down for some very “deep” conversation.
Breakfast was now over and it was time to get on with the rest of the day…watching these antics was quite humorous and reminded me that kids are kids….as sweet and simple as that <3
Dressed for the day, we headed outside where the fun continued and the laughter grew!
We made time for one BIG family squeeze…
So many precious moments were witnessed during my time with this family. I am just so excited I was able to document it in a way that will never be forgotten. I look back at these images while I write this post and I can remember their sweet little giggles, their loud thumps while running down the hallway, and I can feel all the love this family has by simply looking at their photographs.
Thank you again. It was such a wonderful morning <3
Q. What is better than visiting White House Fruit Farms and chowing on some of their AMAZING donuts???
Such a great afternoon was spent with this family! We began with a little exploring and then a little shopping. SO much to look at!
And then a little break for a snack 🙂
And of course….we made our stop at the famous donut counter!
Because, honestly, who can resist donut’s from White House. I know I can’t!
So, we concluded our shopping trip.
And headed outside to enjoy our treats and the beautiful afternoon!
And obviously, neither can this guy! But, at least he was ready to share!
With full bellies, we attempted some family portraits.
MAYBE one of us was on a little sugar high…
With dad to the rescue, we were able to capture some really great moments!
All while mom loved on her little baby girl <3
Miss R was now ready for her turn <3
Which I think helped Big brother A want to join!
All tuckered out, we headed back to our delicious snacks to gather everything up and head for home.
And to sneak some more donuts….of course!
An eventful, beautiful afternoon was spent with this super cute family! And I am so honored to be the one documenting their memories! Thanks again for the great afternoon and I can’t wait for our adventure this fall!
Is there anything to say other than, “GORGEOUS?”
This stunning mama is expecting her second little guy very shortly and I can’t wait to meet him! And I know his BIG brother is just as excited!
We started in studio due to the ridiculous heat and humidity on our session day, however, this mama was a trooper and we headed outdoors. And I am so glad we did! We caught some great family moments!
And then some absolutely breathtaking shots of mom.
I can’t wait to have this soon-to-be family of four back in the studio!!!
This mommy was on the ball! She contacted me WAY back in December of 2014 to plan her little bundle’s session for late June/early July of 2015! We checked in with each other often as we got closer to her due date. I was planning to go out of town right around this little guys ETA.
Lucky enough, he made his debut a little early and I got to meet him right before I left for vacation, when he was just five days old!
He arrived a little less than asleep and put up a good fight during his portraits with mom and dad.
But then this little dream boat fell fast asleep! 8 pounds, 3 ounces of pure sleeping baby! He let me fold him up, move him around, dress and undress him without a squeak, grunt, or squeal!
Even got to try on some Studio 217 upcycled goodies!
And then a special part of the session just for dad…
Kind of pains me a little to be posting those, but I just tell myself to look past the Big M in that bright maize color, which is just a yellow-gold color! Who are they kidding anyways! Ok, Ok….back to the baby.
Oh this sweet little baby boy.
Oh, and btw….he was the most bendy baby I have had thus far when doing the “bum up” pose <3
I am SO happy this family found me and I can’t wait to watch this little guy grow! He is just so precious.
This growing family is always a lot of fun! We capture so much personality during our sessions and I always leave loving them just a little bit more!
I’ve been photographing them since their family began and this little beauty has grown up right before my eyes!
Oh, and then there is baby #2, who is a “big girl” now and is super proud of that! Very entertaining this one is…to say the least <3
The bond these two little girls have just melts my heart!
And finally, baby #3, what a little stud! I mean really….just look at him <3 LASHES FOR DAYS!
These three are just as cute as can be and made me laugh the entire session!
<3 I’m seriously laughing right now while writing this blog because these pictures take me right back to the day of the session and I can remember their laughter! So contagious! <3
Remember the newborn session give-a-way I did WAY back in January? Well, this mom worked really hard to increase her chances of winning by asking everyone she knew to make a qualifying entry on her behalf. And boy oh boy, did it pay off. I was so delighted when it finally came time to meet her newest bundle and the two awesome BIG brothers that came to the session, proudly showing off their little brother!
I mean really, look at this face!
We had some GREAT newborn props to use that were made from KWN Creations.
He was seriously just so sweet and I could have loved on him all day!
At the end of the session I surprised mom and persuaded her to join in and allow me to photograph her with her newest baby boy. With a slight twist of the arm she agreed and they turned out beautifully!
Just a perfect session from start to finish! A darling little family that I am so glad I was able to meet! Can’t wait to watch all these little boys grow <3
Oh.This.Kid! Tell me he isn’t the most adorable little guy! <3 I was so excited that he came to celebrate with me and he brought all his friends too!
And that BOWTIE!!!! Just couldn’t get enough of it :o)
He was a trooper! He put up with me wanting to get all different shots for his gallery and then did an EXCELLENT job on his cake! I just love watching their reactions! He was unsure at first, but not shy in the least! He dove right in and then realized his hands were all “gunky!” He just sat and stared at his hands <3 Too cute!
In November 2014 I first learned that this little family was going be adding two more members in May 2015…
And the excitement on little G-man’s face just made the above image the perfect announcement! And then shortly after I learned that there was going to be both a pink and blue bundle!
And I am pretty sure that G-man just adores them and the three of them will be the best of friends!
The cuteness of this family is just overwhelming! I am honored to have been able to capture so many beautiful portraits for them and I can’t wait to continue on this journey and watch them grow into the best of friends <3
