This little man took a while to warm up to his cake. He was perplexed and a bit intimidated by the mound of sugar that was put in front of him. But we were determined for him to smile and enjoy his first birthday cake. I think this was a success! Happy Birthday Baby D!
While photographing toddlers with their new brother or sister is often a challenge, that was not the case with this family. Although big brother is not pictured in the sneaks he behaved so well, once he learned that I would let him hold my camera and take a photo if I could take some photos of him first.
The portrait of his mom and his baby brother was taken by a…wait for it… a toddler! I took the first one.
Nothing screams happy to me like this family. The girls were amazing to work with, but I assume its cuz their Mom rocks! I will let the photos taken speak for themselves – we just walked around old town and took some fun portraits.
This family was such a joy to work with. It was hard to get big sister to crack a smile BUT when she did – boy oh boy did it light up the room. The session took place after right b4 Dad had to head out to his next tour in Africa. Military families are such an honor to work for. I will stoop rambling, so everyone can just soak up the cuteness this newborn photographer got to experience. And as you can see, baby girl had no issues with smiling…
I cannot WAIT to edit the rest of these images. Here is your sneak – Enjoy!
Dad called baby G a force of nature. And that is a perfect description for her. We worked to get the shots but worth every single second. Those cheeks of hers should be bottled up – in a good way of court – LOL
Since you guys see many images of my clients, I decided to show you a little peek into my family. My Mother in law came down to visit and so did my sister in law and her partner. But of course, like the cobbler’s son who has no shoes, I have no images with me in them – LOL. But, I am loving these photos and I look forward to them hanging on the wall.
I don’t have a lot to say about this session, except it was AWESOME! The squish – what a perfect little pixie. She fell fast sleep as soon as she was swaddled. I nicknamed her swaddle baby. The first pose is accomplished with the help of photoshop.
Who says its hard to photograph a baby that is 6 weeks old? Not me (smile). I packed up my gear and headed out to Alexandria Virginia to take this little pixie’s first portraits. I knew that I might not be able to get all the squishy poses but I was confident that I could get poses that showcases his newness.
This little man was a champ. Mom and Dad followed my pre session directions and he behaved just as I wanted him to – I love photos with eyes wide open – and I was able to capture some of those as well as the sleepy baby images. I will stop rambling now and let you see all the cuteness below. P.S. Their little dog was perfectly behaved – loved him too!
P.S. Have you noticed that I have not done a naked baby in years, but the innocence is still maintained?
Every year I donate one session to a school. This year Burgundy Farm Day Country School was the recipient. If Friends School ( My old Stomping grounds) was closer to my house, I would donate there as well. 🙂
This family met me at Burke Lake Park – the trees lost all their leaves as they prepared for the cold months ahead – BUT, we were still able to find some beautiful color that morning. Let your eyes feast on all the cuteness.
