Sunshine After the Rain

It’s sessions like this that make me think I have the best job ever.  I have been photographing this little girl for years and it’s so much fun to see her growing up.  She had a lot of fun helping me come up with ideas for photos and was a joy to work with such a cooperative subject.

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

We had originally talked about an outdoor session, but with the muggy July weather studio time ended up being a wise choice.  I first met this family several years ago when I did their daughter’s newborn portraits, and I saw her again more recently when I did her preschool photos.  This time, she was back with her one-year-old brother who was having so much fun playing with the trains, planes, and a trike that we brought out in an attempt to get him to stand still long enough to pose for some photos.

I had the cutest little newborn baby boy and his charming big sister in the studio this week.  It was a great way to kick off the new year after taking an extended holiday break.  Here’s a quick look back at big sister when she was his age (with the same monkey!)

Late Fall in the Park

I had the chance to photograph both of these little ones when they were newborns, and just last month I ran across this cute little girl again while taking portraits at a local preschool.   Her mom contacted me to update their family portraits and I can’t believe our luck with the late November weather.  It was unseasonably warm and sunny this morning, making it a perfect day to go explore in the woods.

I got to spend some time with one of my favorite portrait families this morning–what a great way to start off a busy week.  I loved the new location they suggested, and the rain held out just long enough for us to get in our session.

It was another beautiful November day, and I got to spend some time photographing a college friend and her family.  Her girls so adorable in their matching dresses and have become quite the pros at modeling for photos.
