I have been photographing sweet little Hadley since she was just a few days old. She has always been a great little model and this shoot was no different. She lead me all around the park letting me know where and how she wanted to pose. We were able to capture so adorable shots. The Knoll family will be welcoming another daughter in 2018. I can't wait to meet their new addition.
Sometimes my favorite images are the ones that happen almost on accident, in the quiet moments between shots when families don't know they're still being photographed.
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!?
I LOVE photographing these 2 sister. They are sweet, sassy & fun! ! They are both full of so much personality and curiosity. They keep me on my toes and make me laugh.
The above image is what I got when I told the girls to, "Strike a pose!" Told ya they are sweet and sassy!
Love it! The above image is one of my favorites from their session! Classic Celine & Eden!
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!?
Hello World! Allow me to formally introduce you to my new niece, Julianna Catherine! Isn't she perfect!? We're going to be best friends & I have SO many cute photo shoot ideas dancing around in my head for her! I can't get enough of her sweet little face. I could snuggle her all day!
