Last week I shared Alana and Mike’s maternity photos and today I have their session with their new boys, Eli and Smith. I loooooove this family. One of my favorite things to do is shoot families in their home. (Especially families with newborns.) They’re so relaxed and personal and the photos definitely show life as a new family.
I first met Kelli and Christian back in 2010 when they were engaged and needing some photos! I was incredibly pregnant at the time. I remember that Kelli and I were wearing the same boots (except hers zipped all the way because she didn’t have elephant kankles like I did) and I really loved her style and I was incredibly excited to get to work with them. Their wedding was so amazing, one of my all time favorites… Now fast forward a few years and here they are again, this time with a baby. And still so freaking cute and stylish.
I’ve been trying to come up with a list of three words that I want to define my shooting style in 2014. The first word I’ve come up with so far is: Honesty. I want to shoot honest moments with people. There’s so much pressure to be perfect in this industry and in our lives, but I think honesty always reigns over perfection.
I think this was my third time shooting the K family. There’s not much I love more than being invited into someone’s home to photograph their family. If home is where your heart is, after all. My time spent with this family captured all those marvelous H words: Home, heart and honesty.
This fine looking family came in for a session recently. They were adorable and fun and I want to be their friend.
New momma and photographer extraordinaire, Lindsey, invited me to come take her first family photos at the hospital after baby Keane arrived. Lindsey and Sean were practically begging me to do it.
Okay, so it was less her asking me and more me telling her I was doing it. Sometimes it pays to invite yourself places. Especially labor and delivery wards. (Pregnant friends, you’ve been warned.)
Oh, Jude. Jude, Jude, Jude. What a darling and lucky little boy. He was welcomed into this world by his awesome parents and a group of siblings that will surely show him the ropes.
