Some sessions I know from the very beginning are going to be good. This is one of them, their outfits (and gorgeous faces) I was excited from the first minute I saw them. You will probably recognize this spot because it’s one of my favorites! It has a variety of spots plus perfect lighting, it never disappoints. Without further adieu, Nicole and her three babies.
I bet she didn’t think it would happen to her. When they placed him in her arms the first time, she never imagined it would be possible. That he would ever even come close to turning a year old. Time is a thief of the cruelest kind. She may not feel this way but nine months is harder for me to deal with than a year, nine months is the first time you realize how much they’ve grown. You see their personality come through (that part is my favorite) and they start to explore and grow independent. You start the grieving process now and by the time their first birthday hits you’ve passed the five stages and are just ready to celebrate! The bubble bath session was Sam’s idea, I cannot express enough how much I love when a client gets creative with their sessions. We had lots of help to make this day go off without a hitch and I would say we were pretty successful! Here are a few of our favorites.
Thank you gorgeous poppies for joining us for this session. Us Southern Californians get really excited when we see any color around here, and there is no color shortage in this session. I have known both Janessa and Jason for years and years, so this session is extra special to me. She is due to have another little boy in May and I am just so excited for them (as a bias boy mom). It was hard to narrow my favorites because there were just so many good ones but I somehow managed to do it.
I think Lincoln is such a perfect mix of daddy and mommy, I can’t wait to see what this sweet boy will look like. To think I photographed your engagement almost nine years ago and now have the privilege to capture another special time in your lives, thank you for choosing me.
You might recognize this little princess, she is my niece Ayva. She turned one in July, which I of course can hardly believe. It feels like we were just in the delivery room watching this little miracle be born. She is the quietest toddler I’ve ever been around and is so dainty that sometimes I forget she’s even in the room.
There is only one thing better than a six month old coming in, a sweet little shy six month old. Add in the blue eyes and goodness gracious, I couldn’t ask for more. I have been to church with Stephanie for years now and we’ve talked before about having me do some photos of their kids and it just hadn’t happened yet. Until now, baby number four and I sure did get lucky. Nothing but precious smiles coming from Hannah.
Thank you for letting me take these pictures, and for blessing me with great conversation.
Little Isaiah is three months old already! I just love him. He was making us laugh because every time we tried to get him on his tummy for a picture, he would roll right over! Every. Time. Grayson loves him too and was so helpful in trying to get Isaiah to look at us with a smile (so helpful in fact he was eventually banished to the playroom). But I love all of these from our session, I could take pictures of him all day.
