This is one of my favorite families! I love working with them. Sweet Hadley was one of my "Watch Me Grow" babies. It has been almost a year since I have seen them. I can't believe how much Hadley has grown. She is so much fun and was full of smiles. They definitely made my job easy. And seriously, how cute is that ponytail!?
Brother and Sister together as friends
Ready to face whatever life sends.
These little loves belong to my best friend. Aren't they both beautiful!? Lucas was 9 days late! Poor Lily thought he'd never come. Now that he is here, she is totally in love! I love the way she looks at him. She is the best big sister ever!
I love little baby toes!
My best friend gave birth to the most beautiful baby boy last week. I love me some new baby! I didn't take too many shots at the hospital. I was too busy changing his very 1st poopy diaper and enjoying my baby snuggles. Less than 24 hours old in these quick images. Isn't he perfect!?
Welcome to the World sweet boy! Auntie loves you!
It is SO important for Mom & Dad and other important family members to get in on baby's milestone portraits. Even if it is only for one or two shots. This is true of senior portraits and yearly portraits of all kids. Not only are you capturing milestones but creating keepsakes for your child. You never know how much a simple photo will be treasured, until someone in that photo is gone. So often one parent is the parent behind the camera and never make it into family photos of vacations or holidays. While my children will have beautiful photos of themselves at the beach and on Christmas morning, they may in fact forget what I look like after I'm gone or think I was nonexistent! :) I know a lot of people aren't comfortable in front of the camera. They don't like their smile. They want to lose 10 pounds. Brush your hair, put on a clean shirt & smile! You may not like they way you look but I guarantee you kids will cherish that photo forever!
All that being said...How gorgeous is little Julianna and her Momma & Daddy!?
Allow me to introduce you to the newest member of Hartnick Photography's "Watch Me Grow" programs.. Miss Isabella Rose. I'm so excited to be working with this family again! Big sister was also one of my WMG babies! Congratulations Dan, Melynda & Lucy! She is adorable!
I love me some sweet little baby feet!
