When I say I LOVE this family...I mean it! I have known them for quite some time and saw the brother and sister grow up and now they are welcoming another little bundle of joy. Again this was another fun filled session outside at the Yards Park in Washington, DC and the kids had a blast. We finished the session with a quick lunch afterwards. Please, Like Share and Follow!
Anyone that photographs newborns knows that ever session is different. For some reason lately my last three little boys have given me a run for my money and little Christian was no different. Usually I swaddle and they sleep but he was not here for it! He was awake the entire session! We still managed to get some great photos with his sister and brother and is Grandmother. Another loving family in the books and I am glad they are enjoying their images.
Brooklyn has ARRIVED!!!! This little angel came into my studio and was PERFECT!! Brooklyn was so sweet and quiet! She was a joy to photograph and loved her swaddle. Oh she didn't like being on her back but as soon as you put her on the side she was in her happy place as you can see by the images. Another successful newborn session and I only got trickled on one time :-)!
I had the great pleasure of traveling to Alabama to capture the newborn photos for this little princess. She was so small and cuddly it was hard for me to put her down and get these few shots. Her big sister Aurora even got in on a couple even though she wasn't feeling the greatest on this day. Then to pull out the final photo...a baby that has Texas roots has to represent and that Miss Maria did. Huge thanks to her mother and father for trusting me to take spend this time with them.
BABY ALERT!!!! 11 days old and Andrew was in from of my camera! He has a special blanket that he loves and without it...he doesn't stay asleep very long. His mother and I had a time trying to keep him cozy and comfy. As you can see even swaddled he was wide awake, but as soon as you put the magic blanket on him he would go to sleep. He was adorable and can't wait to see him in 3 months!
Excited that this former photography classmate of mine trusted me to take her maternity and family portraits for her third and final child...so she says! LOL! It was a pleasure having the Mills family in the studio for the afternoon and getting to know her hubby and other two children who are eagerly looking forward to the arrival of their little brother next month! Congrats Monae!
Babies are amazing and when you get to photograph two of them it is a wonderful thing! I met these two little ones at 11 days old and they were just gorgeous. Malia with her calm demeanor and Joseph, who is the feisty one already, brought such a joy. Once both were asleep, because one would be awake and the other would snuggle, we were able to snap a couple of portraits.
I have learned so much through newborn photography and the number one thing is PATIENCE!! I had a totally different vision for this session but you have to always be flexible when it comes to little ones. I can't wait to see them grow and develop their personalities to see if they stay calm and feisty! :-)
