The B Family asked me to come to their lake home and take pictures of their entire extended family. They have this wonderful dock and we were lucky to time it just right to catch the amazing sunset. What a beautiful backdrop to capture this gorgeous and sweet family!
This mama and I talked a lot during her pregnancy about how she was likely to have a fast labor, since second babies can come fast and her first labor was pretty quick. When the time finally came, the weather was perfect. Mom opted to labor at home for a bit, so we went for a walk first and visited her neighborhood garden that she helps run while Dad took their older daughter to the playground nearby. After a bit, we realized it was time to head to the hospital. Big sister was so happy to tag along and she did a great job taking pictures with her own camera. I loved that she was there for the whole thing, even the delivery. She was one of the first to see her sister emerge and she loved every second. I really love this family, it was so awesome seeing them grow and add another member. And yes, the mom is gorgeous and after 4 hours of labor, she still looked amazing!
I love when clients are really flexible about location. I told these parents that I had found an abandoned lot with long grass and wild wisteria on the side of a busy road and would they be interested in shooting there. They didn’t even hesistate and the results were so much fun!
Not too long ago, I did his big sister’s one year pictures. We put her in the same wash tub (complete with a cute hat) and also had her enjoy her smash cake and make a big ol’ mess. It was so cool to be able to do the same with her little brother. The property that these were taken on is phenomenal, but its private. If not, I would shoot there every day!
