Monsieur Ben.

There are few things as sweet as newborn photos. Babies change SO FAST–even during the first couple weeks. I love capturing their sweetness and innocence.

The *C* Family!

It’s so fun to see my clients grow up! Not to mention expand! This fantastic family went from three to four since I last saw them!

I love the tutus. That is something I will definitely be investing in for my little girl! 🙂

6-5038

And yes–this darling newborn really is as calm and easy-going as she looks in these pictures. An absolute breeze to work with!

7-5036

I love how surprised she looks here!

8-5032

Hahahah. The curious big sister. But mostly I love the diaper/tutu combo. 🙂

And a funny one to end it… One thing I’ve found as I’ve photographed newborns is that you never really know what you are gonna get when it comes to their hands. You can try and position them, and sometimes they’re okay with it, and other times their hands are off limits! In this case, we got a gangstah thinking face–stroking the goatee… Yeah. You show em’ who’s boss! Love it.

Speaking of Babies…

My older sister just had her second boy about a month ago, and I got the chance to photograph her newborn! (Naturally I took the opportunity to snag some of her older boy, too…)

We started out by taking some in the studio. To keep “G” occupied, I showed him the “flashing lights”! My way of combining distraction with fun photo opportunities for me… 🙂

Doesn’t he look so serene here? Hahah. Don’t worry… We know better…

This is what he does when you tell him to smile. 🙂

Here we go! Little “I”… He loved that throw.

A day or so later we met up at my Mom’s for some natural light shots. We were planning to shoot some outside, but go figure–thunderstorm. But we made it work.

9-3936

I love this shot on the piano bench. Love love love.

10-3991

Check out his adorable little lips!

11-3946

We thought it would be fun to try a couple shots of “I” surrounded by his ancestors. Thanks, mom, for letting us steal from the mantle! 🙂

This was actually an hour or two after the shoot. Little “I” liked this new throw of mine so much that we decided to let him finish his nap in it. I came back an hour or so later, and found this!

13-4082

The thunderstorm eventually ended and I couldn’t resist taking “G” out for some puddle jumping!

This one (below) is one of those where I don’t really understand why I love it. Maybe it’s the bright colors… Maybe it’s how cool his hair looks. I dunno. I just like it!

The one umbrella shot of the day. 🙂 He wasn’t the biggest fan of holding the umbrella, let alone over his head. Oh well. I’m content with this shot. 🙂

Stay tuned! There will be more of these cuties to come! Once the newly-acquired goose eggs on “G”‘s forehead heal completely, we’ll be venturing out for a family portrait session! 🙂

The *C* Family

I had the fun opportunity to meet with this family a week ago to take some family portraits! We met up above Aspen Grove, and it was beautiful! A little chilly, but I personally found the cooler temperatures to be refreshing!

I love grandparent and grandchildren pictures. They can be tricky, but this time I had help… 🙂

11-3559

See what I mean???

12-3564

Four girls….

13-3592

And four boys make for a pretty balanced family!

14-3614

And because you all know I can’t resist jumping pictures when they present themselves… 🙂 At one point they were discussing possibly spelling something, but if that’s what they were going for in this one, the word is lost on me… Any guesses???

Thanks for a wonderful evening! You have a beautiful family!
