Sometimes, capturing images of a little one is tough. Let's be honest, not many children enjoy sitting still. I don't even like to sit still! Even if they do still still, getting a natural smile that their parents know and love can be a challenge. This however is just part of the business and a common issue I handle with during photo shoots. Sometimes, though there is a child that is so easy to work with, I think to myself, "Is this for real? Where are the hidden cameras?"
A sparkling soul, this young girl was a natural. From her glowing smile to her willingness to trust me upon just meeting me, was impressive.
Fall is my favorite time to photograph families & children. Well, maybe Spring is..... Ok, I just love every season.
What I do love to do the most is photograph good friends and their children. Just take a look you can see the love in their images. I have even photographed the youngest as a newborn! Seriously children grow so fast.

As parent, I love shooting milestone birthdays like a first birthday. What is especially wonderful is when the client, is a tiny little toddler who I once photographed as a newborn! It signifies so much more than just their first birthday. For their parents it signifies an exciting year of learning, growing, struggling and accomplishments. For the child, it is a much more oblivious accomplishment.
For myself, it means a client is returning. Meaning what I am providing is important, meaningful and valued. All the headaches of running a business go away when I see little guy's face light up. It is all worth it.
Fall family photo sessions are most likely my favorite types of sessions. The turning leaves and the cool crisp air makes for a beautiful landscape and wonderful weather to work in. While the beginning of Fall usually signifies the end of a cycle, or the winter coming in, fall can also be rejuvenating. Time to get ready to spend time reflecting with family & friends and looking towards the new year.
This family has grown quite a bit since I first met them. Finally I got to meet the grandparents to four beautiful boys I have been photographing for a couple of years! Full circle!
I had the opportunity to photo graph a sweet newborn girl. She was a dream. Slept the whole time and was even very happy in the buff!! Her parents requested one specific photo in an Easter theme, so I found this adorable little hat from Natural Newborn Knits on Etsy! How adorable!
Check her out!
