I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet family last year and was thrilled when they asked me to do another session with them this year. It’s so neat to see how kids grow and how their personalities evolve over time. Damian is a sweetheart big brother who is so good with setting an example for his little sister, and Jada is so full of life and spunk!
During our session both of them would stop to marvel at the beautiful and cool things they saw, and of course I had to stop and marvel with them – it’s so much fun getting into the imaginative and exciting world of kids! For example we saw paw prints dried in the mud and wondered what animal could have left them, or when I spotted a ladybug at the start of our session Jada insisted on carrying it with us the entire time, which meant I had a ladybug crawling up my arm or finger between shots so she could pose without getting distracted by the cuteness. It surprisingly stayed with us from start to end without flying away!
Danielle and Jeremy have raised such wonderful kids and I had so much fun with their whole family.
Here’s to next year, lovelies! Thanks for the memorable and wonderful afternoon!
Monika approached me with a really sweet idea: she and her brothers wanted to get some portraits taken as a special gift to their parents for Christmas.
They decided they would print one of the photos super large and frame it, and put the rest into a special album. (Can you guess which one they wanted to frame?)
What a beautifully sentimental gift, and wonderful way to celebrate sibling love. I’m sure their parents will be so touched.
What a gorgeous Sunday for a family event!
Julian’s parents asked me to photograph the reception portion of their son Julian’s 1st Communion – what a nice day.
The sun shone brightly and it felt like Summer. The patio doors were wide open and guests enjoyed themselves both indoors and out. The kids were having a blast, and the adults were in a playful mood.
Definitely a great way to spend a Sunday!
Mason’s mother Alyssa contacted me after finding my page on Facebook – she wanted to get some photos taken to celebrate her son’s first birthday, and she loved the idea of a cake smash. The concept is adorable: baby’s first cake – watch them go wild. Alyssa made the cake herself, and Mason was definitely a fan. At one point he was shoving fistfuls of cake into his mouth, and then just decided the best way to go at it was to put his whole face into it – hilarious! It was a pleasure visiting with Alyssa and Mason – we had a blast!
Before things got messy. This was hilarious – Mason just sat there for a while, arm up on the balloon as if it was an armrest on a recliner – looking at the cake, just chillin’. Finally, after some prompting … Continue reading →
