Meet Grant, he's sweet, oh so smiley and such a chill baby. We had lots of quiet moments, I think he really enjoyed his session as much as I did! I have this thing for gingers, since my own 3 year old is one, so I was so excited to see the reddish hue in his hair. His mom and dad are really cool, and it's been really fun seeing them throughout the year for their baby announcement and belly photos. It was such an exciting day when I finally got to meet him! Looking forward to document some of his milestones in the coming year.
Just six days after our maternity session, baby Reagan came into the world! She was a dream to photograph and I just loved capturing all her sweet little features and details. Mom and dad wanted baby's gender to be a surprise at birth, so the nursery had the cutest gender neutral owl theme for their baby. It didn't take long for little Miss Reagan's lovely presence to complete the room.
The weather was nice, so we had some time to go outside for a garden basket shot and on the family pool patio. I jumped at the opportunity to snuggle her and broke in mama's new Baby K'tan (picture at end of blog post!)...babywearing is a weakness of mine, and I'm always happy assist new mother's in any way I can help. So many gorgeous images were captured, I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them. Thank you so much to this beautiful young couple for welcoming me into their home and letting me document this precious time.
Nothing is more exciting than telling your loved ones that your whole world is changing in the most amazing way possible! I loved meeting Jennifer and Matthew, they are so cute in every way, and excited to share their news. Looking forward to documenting their growing baby belly and little boy when he arrives this summer!
This newborn session was one that I especially enjoyed. I enjoy all my babies of course, but the session itself was a family affair. Aimee called me several months before the arrival of her daughter and wanted to make sure I captured some special moments for them before their family made a big move to another continent. Both sets of grandparents were there and the environment was joyful and warm. Baby Penelope was always smiling and slept peacefully. Big brother was happy and cute as can be! What a blessing to experience such happy moments with a beautiful growing family.
I'm so behind on blogging. Several sessions I need to post! It's no secret I love a baby belly and I love art. Put a pregnant ballerina, an artist and a photographer together and create magic <3 Love these images by this beautiful mommy friend.
The multi talented Jane. Jane does amazing face painting for parties and glamor make up for fashion and special occasions. When I was pregnant with #2 I asked her if she would paint my belly, and being that I had a pretty "big canvas" lol, She did a phenomenal job! So glad I inspired her to venture on to pregnant mamas!
