Daddy’s (second) little girl

May 31, 2011

I’m not sure which sister’s hair I loved more at this session: baby’s thick head of tiny curls, or big sis’s pom-pom pigtails.   They were such an adorable pair.   And their mom and dad were amazingly patient for having a newborn at home (can we say lack of sleep?) and a 2-year-old.  We had great fun dressing both girls up with my studio stash of girlie accessories.

Hairbows and Ruffles

May 25, 2011

This family first contacted me months ago to schedule a spring Celebrating Adoption session, and it was nice to finally meet them this morning.  It was clear that after 6 years of raising two boys mom was excited to dress up her little girl.  I loved her curly-que bow and ruffly dress.   It was also fun to see how protective her big brothers were of her–she definitely is the little darling of the family.

Congratulations, Graduate!

May 22, 2011

It’s just a few weeks until graduation and today we had a lovely afternoon for a family portrait to celebrate the milestone.   I knew it they were a fun bunch when the guest of honor showed up wearing a tux shirt and plaid shorts.  Hey, we just needed a headshot, right?

On the West Coast

May 21, 2011

I’ve been so busy with sessions since I have been back from vacation that I didn’t get a chance to post a few pics from the trip.  Here are a few of my favorites.   The first is on the beach in Cabo San Lucas, and taken with my pocket camera.  The second is on deck on the Disney Wonder.  And the last set are from our day at Disneyland.  The girls are sporting dresses from our favorite vacationwear designer: Ollie Girl!

Baby Brother

May 17, 2011

What an adorable little guy this little brother is.  He was a big 3-week-old, but so calm and sleepy for most of the session.  His sweet not-so-big big sister was a great helper during our session, from helping to make mom and dad smile to bringing baby blankets.

Football Anyone?

May 16, 2011

Big brother was such a good sport during his sister’s photoshoot this morning.  He played nicely and waited patiently as we tried to get this little one-month-old to catch some shuteye and pose for newborn portraits.  But when he found my football prop, he was excited and was eager to play catch!   We compromised by letting him take some of his own portraits with the football, and with his baby sister, too, of course!
