Last week I got to do newborn portraits for this family … again. I told them that I thought they might hold the record for most sessions but it turns out that they don’t. They DO definitely hold it for the most in a 2 year period of time, though. My first session with them was not even 2 years ago.

But I LOVE that. When I first met them, their oldest was only about 14 months old. She was SO easy it was shocking. The next time she was a little tricky, and most recently she was in her typically difficult (for her age) time. Well when I did this session with her baby sister she had just turned 3 and she was a perfect little angel. It’s just fun to see a family so much that I can notice all these little differences in the kids.

Mom was looking for a quick-as-possible newborn session this time around … and I think we managed it in 2.5 hours. She was equipped with backdrops, wraps, and hats! So everything in these images was all provided by her. But then I did meet with the woman who provided them and bought a bunch of stuff. So there’s that. Apparently I have no self-control.

She also GAVE me a purple blanket that worked as an amazing backdrop. So my little girlies (though they are few and far between this year) will be seeing it for sure!

Enjoy.

I recently met this family in the park for a family photography session, with their super adorable one year old daughter. She was way cute, and way sneaky. She was purposely hiding her little smiles from me. At one point she was sitting with her back to me, but facing her parents, and her parents were telling me that she was smiling away. But as soon as she turned, the smile was gone! Sneaky little girl.

I did catch a few though.

And she couldn’t manage to hold them back when mom and dad were swinging her around. So sweet.

Enjoy.

I admit this was a little unexpected. A month or so ago, grandma contacted me about newborn portraits. I’d been photographing another member of the family for a year and she loved my work … but she lived really far away. 100 miles away to be exact. And after I told her what the travel fee would be I never expected her to hire me anyway. But she did!! So last week I packed up and drove an hour and a half to Conneaut to photograph this week little girl.

Yes! A girl! Imagine that! I can count the number of newborn girls I’ve photographed this year on one hand.

This was a fun session. Mom and Grandma had a lot of ideas and props they wanted me to use. They also had big brother who they NEVER thought would cooperate. But he did SO well that they couldn’t even believe it. And he’s so cute. I certainly hope I’ll be photographing them again cause I can only imagine how cute he’ll be when he’s not being forced to sit still.

Definitely worth the drive.

Enjoy.

Two weeks ago I had the honor of photographing this family again. This is my fourth or fifth session with them … and with number 4 on the way I’ll just be seeing more of them! But that’s great because I love this family! In fact, mom even watched my girls while I went to Brand Camp back in May … which means she had them overnight.

They are so laid back and fun. When we got to our original destination in North Park and discovered that it was completely overgrown and closed (it’s an island and the bridge was blocked off) … they just rolled with it. We went a little ways down the street until I found this place so we pulled over and did some photos! After just letting the kids run for a bit, we decided to jump in the creek! Well … the kids did more than jump. I think you could legitimately say they were swimming in it. Among other things.

It was a lot of fun … but now I may understand why dad has never become come to any of our sessions before. It may be awhile before I see him again.:)

Enjoy.

Look at this little guy! I had already photographed big sister’s 2 year session, and mom’s maternity session, and last week I got to do his newborn photos! He did amazingly well. I actually finished with him in under 3 hours which is almost unheard of. Big sister was gone for most of the session but when she showed up she was apparently my new best friend because she hardly left my side. I never object to a super cute little side kick.:)

This little guy is a baby planner so you’ll be seeing more of him!

Enjoy.
