Meet sweet baby “T”. Isn’t he absolutely perfect? I work with his Dad and was thrilled (and honored) when he asked if I would take their newborn pictures. Having known Dad for some time now, I knew little baby “T” was going to arrive in style – and he did not disappoint. Him and his big sister are going to be two of the best dressed kids around. I seem to have a curse where the babies of my friends don’t like to sleep for me. This little guy was no exception. He’d sleep, but only in my arms. As soon as I put him down he would stir and squeal at me. I wasn’t going to give in though. We worked through it and I just moved very slowly to get him into a few poses. In one picture below you’ll see where he woke up and gave me a look like “what are you doing lady”?. That was the only awake shot I got, and it makes me giggle every time I look it.
My neighbor messaged me last week telling me she completely forgot it was school picture day so the kids went to school in whatever they had on that day. She asked if I could come over and take some pictures, a school picture re-do you might say. I of course was more than happy to. It was the quickest and easiest session ever. As you can see her children are ADORABLE, and they love each other. Like seriously. There was hugging, and laughing and I didn’t even ask for any of it. I don’t know how she did it, but I’m going to send my girls over for a lesson in sibling love. I of course know they can’t always be like that, but I still left pretty impressed. Thanks for spending your morning with me “A” family, and for standing the in sopping wet yard =)
You might remember baby “C” as “Baby J2.0”. I did her maternity session a few months ago before we knew whether she was a he or a she. You’ll definitely remember her adorable older sister from that session. She was the one loving on her momma’s belly anxious to meet her new sibling. I got to spend the morning with them and had a great session. They are such a great family and I am so happy for them. I know “M” is going to be a great big sister, and well little sister “C” is just precious as you can see!
I took my girls out for a little photo shoot tonight to enjoy the beautiful spring weather and flowers. You can see we’re making some progress with my younger one as far as pictures. No screaming this time, and she actually looked at me for a couple =)
Here is my overdue sneak peek of the homecoming of Major Macmanus. I had the honor to be there to capture the moment and the memories. I am so thankful that Lindsay asked me to be a part of it. The conditions weren’t ideal, and it was without a doubt my quickest session ever – but it will always be a special one to me. I can’t thank you enough for everything that your family does for our country and so that me and my family can live the life we do.
The conditions weren’t ideal for pictures – it was dark, and raining. I had to use my flash and had no where to bounce it. I think the emotions in these pictures will make up for the fact that they aren’t technically perfect. Thank you again Macmanus family.
