It was past due for the Scott family portrait and I was thrilled to head out to their farm to capture images of this sweet family! I have been photographing them since before the oldest was born, so their annual family portrait is always so much fun to catch up and see how much everyone has grown! I love how the farm animals come in and out of the images– its very true to their farm life!
I feel like it took FOREVER for Baby Claire to get here! I have known for months and months and from the moment I heard, I started planning her newborn session. For her big sister, we included dad’s firefighter gear so this time I wanted to also include a nod to mom’s EMS career. So, Claire got to do both and got to play with some other new fun props! I am so honored to watch this family grow and capture images that they will treasure! Being the family historian is one of the coolest perks of this job!
“Newborn portraits” are generally only done in the first two to three weeks of baby’s life, but sometimes (especially in a pandemic), parents aren’t able to get into the studio that fast. Many parents feel disappointed that they won’t get a newborn session after that initial window, but I still photograph a newborn type session up to eight weeks. Since babies develop and change so quickly, not all the newborn type poses are possible, but we are still able to capture a big variety of images!
Baby Kayden was six weeks old when we did his session and while he was determined to stay awake and watch me, we did get a lot of variety of awake and asleep images. Plus, look at how much those chubby cheeks had filled in!
Its a really good thing I’m not Sam’s mommy! With those cheeks and killer blue eyes, I know I would never be able to say no to that sweet face! As always, Sam and his big brother Henry had me in giggle fits when they came into the studio. These two boys stole my heart years ago and I love every chance I get to play with them!
Oh my goodness baby Ethan is one handsome little guy! With all that dark hair and beautiful brown eyes, this boy is a charmer! At six months, he was already on the move too! I can’t wait to see how fast he will be at his one year session!
It can be tough when you move, then have another baby. You never want the youngest one to feel left out or different than their older siblings. I am so glad I got to photograph the Powell family and help them create images of their youngest that matches the images of their older two! We also got some distinctly different images, but I love that the little guy has his place on the wall now too!
