One, Two, Three!

I was so excited to wrap up this gallery for some sweet friends before the holidays. ¬†Isn’t this little fam just the cutest?!! ¬†They waited to find out the sex of their youngest, and I was so excited to hear that they’d been blessed with a girl after two boys (it’s so nice to have both!)! ¬†Here are some favorites from our shoot.

A Dramatic Entrance

The newest addition to this sweet little family made a dramatic entrance into this world, with a serious fever scare and stay in the NICU.   Thank God everyone is doing well now!

Newborn shoots are some of my favorite.  Parents are beaming, siblings are bright eyed and curious, and then there is that adorable new born!  This little guy gave me lots of beautiful gazes, which is one of the reasons I like doing these shoots at a month or two old (rather than a few days old).  Here are some favorites from our time together.

 

Let Her Eat Cake!

With their daughter’s first birthday right around the corner,¬†I met this sweet little family to capture some fun images of them together. ¬†As a mother of two myself, I certainly have a special place in my heart for one-year-old’s and birthday celebrations!! ¬†The shoot of course wasn’t complete with out a cake to mash those precious little hands into. ¬†I think it’s safe to say she enjoyed it ;). ¬†Happy birthday little lady!

Making the Leap

For the last several months I’ve been eyeing Canon’s website to snag one of their refurbished 5D Mark IV cameras. ¬†This is the latest of their legendary 5D series that is used by a large majority of professional Canon shooters. ¬†While my 6D has provided me with stellar image quality over the last year, I really wanted a better auto focus system (these kiddos move so fast!). ¬†Turns out those refurbished cameras are actually new cameras returned from retailers because they don’t have the new c-log added (more of a video feature). ¬†What a deal! I finally pulled the trigger, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

ps. Congrats to the Rankin family on their beautiful baby boy!!!  Thanks for letting me help capture all this sweetness.

 

Surprise Surprise

My step brother and his wife decided to wait to find out the sex of their second child, so we were all very excited to find out that it was a boy (with a full head of hair!).  Here are some favorites from our newborn shoot, which included two very large but gentle giants!

 

Not Yet of This World

Last week I had the honor of photographing one of the newest humans alive – little Ruby at just 5 days old. ¬†Even for those of us who have children of our own, we quickly forget what a newborn is like. ¬†Their eyes open occasionally and just search for all they know, their mother’s face. ¬†Their thin limbs move wildly while they are awake, simply wanting to be held tightly as they have been in the womb their entire life. ¬†They really aren’t yet of this world! ¬†Such a reminder of how fragile and beautiful life is…
