These little girls gave me a run for my money but don't twins always do that. Those of you who knew me when my twins were little probably remember me going around like a half asleep zombie. However, it does eventually get better and easier and that was definitely my experience photographing little Alice and Rose. At first Alice was sleeping like a dream but Rose was very angry with the whole idea. Then they switched. But eventually everything fell into place and these little girls finally decided to show me how cute their little faces look when they're not pouting. Every time I shoot twins it brings me back to when mine were little, there's nothing like two little babies snuggled up together.
I met this little cutie this past weekend along with her mommy, daddy, and grandma and I haven't stopped looking at her photos since. Isn't she just adorable. Even though Everly did not much enjoy getting her photo taken you can't really tell. For most of the shoot Everly looked at me and at her mom but refused to go to sleep. Since she was pretty happy, I was happy to keep shooting. Then she fell asleep for a short while (during which I took many adorable photos). Then, She woke up MAD! After that she was really only happy if mom or dad was holding her which was great because it was time to take family photos anyway. Of course, as I walked out the door she was dozing again, isn't that just how babies are. Anyway, this little girl is super cute so enjoy a sneak peek of little Everly,
If you or someone you know is pregnant or recently had a baby and you're interested in booking a newborn shoot with me head on over to my Contact Me page and shoot me an email. I would love to meet you and your baby.
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.
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.
Sweet little Emmy is here! This little sweetie was so sleepy for her photos, she slept through almost the whole thing. But, just to make sure that I knew she didn't like it, she kept a grumpy face even when she was sleeping. Eventually though she relaxed and I got to see her sweet face without a scowl on. I've known Emmy's mom and dad for quite a few years and have photographed them a few times so it was so fun to be able to take photos of their very cute and very loved new baby girl.
Baby Jack is here. What an adorable, expressive little boy! When I first started photographing him he was wide awake, looking around at all this weird equipment I brought into his home and this machine that kept clicking in his face. He wasn't mad, just interested and giving me all kinds of cute and funny faces. But, he is brand new and after awhile he couldn't help but fall asleep. Even with only being there for a little while I can tell that little Jack brings a lot of joy into his home and I know he'll only continue to do so as he grows.
Welcome to the world sweet Charlie! I first met this little boy's family when his big sister was born and since then I've met with them to document their growing family several times. And now that family has grown by one seriously cute little guy. Charlie wasn't particularly happy to have his photo taken but his big sister was over the moon about posing and also about being a big sister. While I swaddled Charlie, Nora leaned over him and kissed him on the head, then she laughed and said, "Charlie, I can't believe you." I'm looking forward to seeing little Charlie grow and change, congratulations to his family.
I can't believe this boy is not a baby anymore! I've been photographing Bubba since he was a newborn and since the last time I saw him he has definitely made the transition from baby to toddler. Since little man is at that age where he is always on the go we decided to photograph him doing what he does best, playing. As soon as I walked in to his backyard he started running around showing me all his toys and his favorite things to do. At the same time he was being such a little ham smiling for the camera. Not only was it great to celebrate another year in Bubba's life, but this family also had another big deal to celebrate. Mary, bubba's grandmother beat breast cancer this year!
AJ is turning one! I had such a great time photographing this sweet little man. Not only do I love to set up a fun theme, like AJ's cute fishing themed set, but he is just such a cutie. As soon as his mom walked up to to introduce herself AJ reached his arms out to me so that he could meet me too. Although the Florida heat and humidity was in classic form for our session I had a great time getting to know this cute little guy and his parents. First birthdays are so important and special, I love that I get to be a part of such great milestones. Happy First Birthday AJ!
Its rare to see a couple who seem to go together as well as Monique and Terrence do. From the moment I arrived to photograph Monique and her girls getting ready until the end of the night there was not one tense moment. And it wasn't just the two of them, everyone around them seemed so genuinely happy for them and ready to celebrate their love. After a sweet outdoor ceremony where Monique and Terrence recited their own vows we headed inside the Rusty Pelican for a fun reception with lots of dancing and laughter. I hope that the bride and groom look back on this day as just the first of many happy days as husband and wife and are always as comfortable together and as surrounded by love and support as they were on this day. Congratulations you too!
