OK…this is just the kind of angelic face that makes me, the mother of two wonderful boys, want a little girl.  It happened a year ago at her newborn session and it happened again a year later during her one year session.  Doesn’t help that she is sweet as pie with me…I could just take her home!  OH and the accessories…bows, flowers, pearl bracelet, pink slippers…I was dyin!

Her nursery is fabulously decorated, from the crib to the dresser to the curtains.  I have to say, I just love how the framed portrait from our previous session fits right in…

And here is her big brother, who I photographed last summer.  In this first photo, I caught him entranced by the tv and I just love the feel of it.  Soon afterwards he was engaged and smiling.  I think it’s the sparkle in his eyes that makes him such a beautiful model …just like his sister!

I’ve been remiss in my blogging, but I thought I’d start things back up with a bang…and a smash…a cake smash, that is.

This was my first one and I have to admit, the thought of a baby smashing and throwing pieces of cake kinda made me nervous.  I know that my OCD is totally showing right now, but hey…part of this blog is getting to know me, right???  This boy was SOOOO adorable and cute about figuring out just what to do with his over-sized birthday cupcake that we were giggling and laughing up a storm the whole time.  Do I drum with it?  Do I squish it?  Do I eat….hey, this tastes pretty good!!!   There were so many great shots, that limiting it to four was tough, but I really loved the idea of a storyboard.  Also, we video taped it and put together a session slideshow that features a combination of video footage and photos.  I have to say I LOVE how it turned out and I think it’s a great way to capture a session!  I’m thinking about regularly offering this as one of my products. I’ll keep you posted…

Happy birthday to you little man…you are adorable beyond words!

Nine weeks old and very bright eyed, this boy was a beautiful model.  Now, I definitely do not recommend this age for “newborn” shoots because they just do not stay asleep, BUT for this very special person I just had to comply.  We gave it our best college try…getting him all cuddly and warm and ready for a nap…and ready for a nap….okay, not so much. But I have to say I am so happy with how we captured him!  He was awake for most of the time, but catching these wonderful expressions of his soulful, blue eyes told me it worked out just fine that way.  Mom did want some “sleepy” shots, so once he did fall asleep, it was snap, snap, snap then he promptly woke up.  I think we managed to get some beauties of him both awake and in a perfectly peaceful slumber…

Outdoor winter session….hmmmm….I’m kind of a wimp about the cold, so I was a little worried.  I think I wore about 15 layers just to be sure I’d survive.  Well, the temperature was no problem for these dapper cousins.  Some kids are just oblivious to the cold and these guys were too busy having fun to even notice that it was winter out.  Granted, this was before the onslaught of snow, but still!  Anyway, talk about great models! Look how handsome they are and I love their natural posing.   The grounds at Ringwood Manor made braving the cold so worth it!  I love the natural textures of wood, stone and ivy…what beautiful backdrops.

A huge thank you to their aunt…she not only arranged the session as a surprise to her sister and mother but she was AWESOME at getting them to giggle at just the right moments!!!  Love that!

  • Penny - Great pictures of these tow handsome young men. Love their smiles.02/16/2011 – 7:17 am

Three months is very young…yet there is such a big difference between a newborn session and a three month old session.   At three months, babies are alert, can hold their heads up and can even push up off their bellies sometimes like this little boy.  No more teeny-tiny, sleeping baby poses…instead it’s wide eyes, cooing and hopefully with the right prompts, some adorable smiles.  Some people feel you can see more of  your baby’s personality at this age and so decide to wait until the 3 or 6 month milestone.  I have to admit, I love photographing BOTH stages!

This little boy was such a joy….he was so calm and pleasant, and barely fussed at all.  The secret to keeping him engaged…just jingle some keys and he was happily interested!  These family shots are among my favorites…mom and dad had such a warm and gentle way about them and I really feel that this comes across in these images.
