Emmy is One! Time flies, it feels like I just did her six month shoot! Of course, little Emmy decided to skip nap time on the day of our shoot so she wasn't in her best mood but we made do and still managed to get plenty of cute photos. Plus, you can't be mad at this little face even if she is crying while she eats her cake. Emmy, I'm looking forward to your birthday party, I can't believe how big you are now.
This past weekend I photographed this little cutie named Theo. Theo is probably one of the chillest babies I have ever met. Even when he was awake for part of the shoot he pretty much just looked around, not wanting to miss anything while i posed him. He didn't even really cry the entire three hours I was with him, just the occasional whine. I really enjoyed meeting theo and his family! One of those rare relaxed and easy shoots.
I can't believe Emmy is already over six months old! It feels like I just did her newborn shoot . Emmy is growing in to such a cute and sweet little girl and she was such a trooper during her shoot she didn't mind anything except being in the water, and she distracted herself from being in the water by chewing on slices of grapefruit. She was a little bit stingy with her smiles at the beginning of the shoot but we fixed that by making her dad come over and talk to her. Her mom says she's a total daddy's girl and I have to agree. Here's to another great six months Emmy!
Little Zoey just helped me continue my streak of really calm sleepy babies. I don't know how I've been so lucky lately but so many of my newborns have been snoozing through their sessions. However, her big brother and big sister were definitely not sleepy. Those two (two and a half year old twins btw) were VERY excited to be in photos with their baby sister. Zoey probably got 100 kisses from them while they were shooting. This little peanut is so incredibly sweet and I'm so glad I got to meet her.
Meet Juniper, my most recent adorable (and adorably named) client. This little girl slept through most of her session like a champ and made my job really easy. She seems to know that all of her needs will be taken care of so she doesn't exactly put her all into crying. Just a little whine here and there. It was a total joy photographing her!
If you're having a baby soon head over to my contact page and send me a message, I'd love to capture memories of you and your beautiful baby.
look at this sweet little chunk! Little Evelyn is here and she couldn't be cuter. Evelyn didn't want to sleep for us at first, Being a model is just too exciting, but eventually she fell asleep and let me take some photos. Her big sister is so proud and was very excited to hold the baby all by herself for photos. One of my favorite parts of my job is seeing the way big siblings adjust to having a baby in the house, some are nervous, some are proud, some are silly and can't wait until the baby is old enough to play but all of them have such a sweet look in their eyes when they look at their new baby brother or sister.
If you or someone you know are expecting a baby soon head over to my contact page and tell me your due date. I only book a few newborns per month so don't wait!
This little baby was not happy about having her photo taken. Even though Anaisha was born early at only 4lbs 9oz she already has a big personality. For those who know me, this may ring a bell with you about my own 4lb 8oz baby who also has a very big personality and thinks she runs the show. Luckily, we had grandma with the magic hands near by to calm this little lady down. Even with her not so cooperative mood, Anaisha was a total joy to work with, (I mean, look at those cheeks!) Really, her whole family was super sweet and I'm so glad I got to meet them. Welcome to the world little Anaisha, keep that spunky spirit.
Take a look at this little cutie! His name is Auden and he is his mom and dad's first baby and his grandmother on his mom's side's first grandchild. Little Auden was wide awake for most of our shoot but he wasn't mad for most of it, just very curious about everything that was happening. The only thing that made him very angry was being unwrapped, this baby loves to be swaddled! But even when I have a baby that refuses to sleep for me I absolutely love this job. Who wouldn't? getting a chance to snuggle brand new little babies and photograph them in a way that captures such a short fleeting moment in a child's life. Our babies will never again be so tiny and snuggly and we never want to forget these moments when we were so tired but stayed up to watch them sleep.
Happy Birthday Declan! I can't believe this guy is already turning one! And what a sweet boy he's turning out to be. He's all smiles until you put a camera in front of your face. All he wanted to do during his shoot is show off his skills pulling up to stand and crawling all over the place. I think he'll be walking soon and I can't wait to see him toddling around on those chunky legs of his.
Sweet little Brenna is here and her big sister couldn't be happier. I photographed the two of them in their home in Tampa, FL and they were so sweet. Brenna was feeling a little nervous about all this weird stuff going on around her so she decided to stay awake and keep an eye on things. Unfortunately, that meant that by the time I left she was pretty exhausted. When it was big sister Isla's turn to join her sister she was such a big girl. She did her best to follow all of my directions and give her best smile. I think Brenna is a lucky girl to have a big sister like Isla to look out for her.
