Well. This took me right back! It's only been eight months since my little one was born but the beginning of her life and mine as a new mom was really a blur. It was hard for me to remember her being so small, until I held Madison. The sleepy snuggles, the swaddling, the yawns... as sleep-depriving and trying as it can be, it's such a magical time. Madison was just as sweet as pie. The love her parents have for her is undeniable. Such a beautiful family! Can't wait to see all that's to come for them! What a great adventure! <3
Last weekend I finally got to meet the latest edition to this beautiful family! I've spent the last few years photographing these wonderful people - and I was so glad to finally meet T! What an incredibly sweet family! We did these photos right at their home. They had such beautiful landscape right in their backyard - and it's always great doing photos where kids are most comfortable. The girls played in their sandbox and ran around the yard. These types of candid shots are my favorite. I had a blast - can't wait until the next time around! As I say every time, it's always bittersweet to see them grow. Time is a crazy thing! <3
One of my most favorite people of all time is the mama to these two beautiful babes. To sum her up in just three words (because I could go on and on) she is fun, she is so sweet, and she's a friend. Now I know summing a person up by saying "she's a friend" might sound sort of strange, but she has all the best characteristics you'd want in a really good friend - she's empathetic, understanding, smart, and she's cool.. like, really, really cool. She baked a carby-cinnamony-sugary-delicious thing just before I got to her house for photos.... if that's not enough to win over my love for an eternity, I don't know what is. On top of that, she ALWAYS has coffee ready for me. I adore her. To add to her awesomeness, she has two kiddos that are just as fun and awesome as she is! I had such a blast hanging with these guys and seeing all the ways in which they've grown since our last get together. I can't believe the time. I know I saw it every time, but it is equal parts amazing and crazy to watch families and people grow. From weddings, to maternity, newborn, 1st birthdays to 5th birthdays... When I got into photography I never really thought about the idea that I'd be following people through some of the most monumental times of their lives. It's been an experience I can't really put into words. This family has been with me since the beginning and it really makes my heart feel like it's going to explode! I love them to pieces! Can't wait for our next get together!
The theme of this shoot is the number two! Little E just turned two, AND he's expecting two new sisters in just a few short months! I've been lucky enough to photograph some of the biggest and most memorable moments with these two; their wedding day, their maternity and birth photos for Enzo, and now where they are today - awaiting the arrival of their sweet twin girls. I cannot wait to meet them! It is so incredibly moving to me to get to work with families as they embark on these new chapters and adventures. It's so beautiful. Just like Steph, seriously.. can you believe she is 30 weeks pregnant with twins here?! She's stunning!
This little lovey gave me a whole lot of sunshine on a super rainy day! These two traveled all the way from Auburn to Rochester for their session. I'm so glad they made the long trip because meeting them made my week! We had a great time checking out the beautiful flowers and plants at the Lumberton Conservatory, as well as the little quail, ducks, and turtles! So happy to have met these two - their little eskimo kisses made my heart melt.
Well, I had a really great time photographing this bunch! I even got to sit in the back seat of the truck with the girls while we drove to our photo shoot! I can't believe how big they are getting, and how much they talk! It's amazing how much these little ones can grow and progress in just a few short months. It seems like it was just last week when Jackie was pregnant with Keira, and now she's in kindergarten! The girls are hilarious, clever, and so sweet. I loved listening to them tell stories and giggle with each other. Makes me excited for when my little bean starts talking! Can't wait to hang with this crew again soon!
Easily one of my most favorite family's ever. I love the Baker's! Whenever I get to hang out with them I always leave with a smile. From the zany games Zoe comes up with to the ridiculously contagious smiles from Theo... It's an amazing feeling to get to photograph families as they grow and reach big milestones like first birthdays. I first met the Baker's when Theo was a newborn - I cannot believe it's been a year already! He's gotten so big! Crawling and laughing and loving everyone up! He's the sweetest! His big sister, Zoe, has me cracking up with her quick wit and fashion sense. It's becoming ritual now that we play 'groceries' whenever I come over now, and it's basically my favorite since my groceries only ever total $5!
I think the photos say it all. Yup. They're amazing. Lots of beautiful moments and big love - and I am so very honored that they've chosen me to document these sweet times. <
How sweet are these girls!? From the blue eyes to the tulle - they are just the cutest! I had such a great time photographing this family. The girls did a great job - it was a beautiful morning, and I'm so glad I got the opportunity to work with them! It's such an honor to work with families through the seasons and see them grow! Can't wait until next time!
