When I first met this beautiful family it was for their first daughters 1st birthday and now they are about to welcome their first son into their family! Their session was filled with everything you would expect with 2 little ones and 1 on the way. I capture the love, the snuggles and all the sweet moments that happen when Mom + Dad may not even realize they are happening. Nasatir Family, thank you for your trust in capturing this special time for your amazing family. I adore out time together and cannot wait to meet your little man!
April 28, such a special day. The day I got to watch the best friend become a Momma. Every second of that day is carved in my mind, she was so strong, she never gave up, not for a single second. Her strength, her sense of calm, her determination. All so truly amazing. Thank you Dawn, Ryan and Fredi for allowing me to be a part of such a special moment. It is one I will never forget. Baby James, you are more loved than you will ever know.
I’m a Momma to two very shy little girls. I get it. The thought of having a new photographer come into your home and getting your shy TWO YEAR OLD to actually open up to them is terrifying. Right? When I shoot any session I don’t come with an agenda, time limit or rules. I take my time, we play, have fun and work towards real moments. I don’t force moments. I let them happen NATURALLY. The little guy in this adorable session wanted nothing to do with me upon arrival, as most children don’t. Big sis, was also pretty apprehensive. This was a Momma + Me mini session. I think I spent almost an hour a half with this family. We just hung out and took our time. Just because it’s a mini session, doesn’t mean they’re rushed through and if I don’t get “the” shot in the “allowed” time then oh well, I’m done. I shoot until I, as the creative artist feel as if I have a deliverable product. I am a Mom, I just get it. I want you to go into your session knowing that if your kid acts like, well a kid that’s okay. Please, don’t sweat it. We will capture amazing moments. This, I promise you. Oh and by the way, this 10 image “mini session” had a deliverable gallery of 165, thats how great it went. MacNaught Family, you’re sweet, caring and one of my new faves. xo
This family. Going into a session with a family who I know trusts me, 100% is everything. I always stress how important it is to have a good client/photographer relationship, on both ends. When I know a client shares my vision and trusts my art I can let go and do me and when they feel comfortable around me they can also let go and do them. You cannot stage the moments captured in this session. We let baby lead, we moved around, we used their whole (GORGEOUS) house. Most importantly, WE HAD FUN and a lot of it. I mean, look at how much fun Mom + Dad had smashing those YUMMY cupcakes! Life unscripted will always have my heart.
You guys!! This session was so much fun. It took a total of maybe 30 minutes and we captured some pretty adorable moments. Hudson is the baby of 4 to this gorgeous family. Between the planning, shooting and the little time it will take Momma to select and print her images she might have a total of an hour invested into this session. My point in telling you this is that it is so important that whether your first or fourth baby, make it a priority to capture them. Whether with a photographer that you love or with your iPhone, just capture them. Print your memories, make it a priority. Thank you so much Thomas family for allowing me into your home to help capture some special moments of your beautiful baby boy!
