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.
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.
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!
Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing one of Austin’s newest little humans, baby Lucas! His brother was clearly very excited about the new arrival, although their dog Bella was still undecided (but she did grace us with a quick appearance for the camera). Here are a few highlights from our shoot, which included the beautiful rainbow blanket that Grandma knitted for big brother and the book “Dragons Love Tacos” (that title just cracks me up). I always like to include items that are special to the family as it helps tell the story of this special time in their lives.
