Smiles… in the end

This sweet baby girl came in for her 3-generation photoshoot and was happy as can be… until we started to take the photos.  She decided she needed a little while, but eventually came around, and I got to see some of her smiles that just lit up the room.

What a beautiful morning for family portraits.  It was definitely one of those days that it was good to get an early start, because later in the day you wouldn’t want to be out in the sun.  But in the morning it wasn’t too bad temperature-wise, and the location this family picked for their portraits was just beautiful this time of year.   It was nice to see this little guy again and meet his sister.  He was full of personality and she was such a cute little almost-one-year-old.

Peek-a-Boo Playhouse

May 4, 2015


After a couple of reschedules due to rain/cold we ended up with a gorgeous morning for our family photoshoot.  I have been taking pictures for this family since the little girl was a newborn, and it was so fun to see how much she has grown.  Since we did the session around their own home, it was also fun to see all of their previous portraits displayed around the house.

Pink Blossoms

It looked like spring but felt a little like winter outside today.  But this sweet little girl still had fun exploring park at our session.   I just loved her little dandelion bouquet.

Little Elephant

It is always so much fun to see my former newborn clients growing up to be the big brothers and sisters.  I just loved the curls on this big sister, and enjoyed seeing her parents again.  Little brother decided her wanted to be awake for most of his session (despite being only a little over a week old!) but was such a cooperative poser nevertheless.
