Isn't her name darling? I was so excited to get an email from this little one's mama as this was my first newborn in Houston! She's the first baby to this lovely couple and, if I remember correctly, she's also the first grandchild! So many people must love this little girl already. When we first started she was wide awake, but before long she fell into a deep sleep and performed wonderfully for us.
Why are baby toes so delicious?? I just love them.
Love her little baby faux-hawk.
Mom tickled her cheek here to get that little grin :).
At the end of the shoot she woke up and all of her faces cracked me up!
I photographed this beautiful family when I visited North Carolina last year and I was lucky enough to do it again this year! The whole shoot was a breeze and it was so much fun! We wandered around downtown Wilmington and discovered some really great spots. I LOVE the way their outfits all came together. The girls had such cute outfits that matched some of our locations perfectly! Little miss "S" here was a perfect model the entire time.
Despite the general aversion most people have toward clowns, I think this next shot went better than expected. This comedic fellow jumped into one of our pictures, though I only got two shots before "S" decided this was much too close for comfort! After sufficiently frightening the children, he pulled a peanut out of my ear and made a blonde joke.
"R" is such a great big sister!
These girls love their daddy!
This may have been my favorite part :). We stopped for hot cocoa (and a cinnamon bun for the girls) and I placed them next to the window for some lovely window-light. They didn't even notice me.
This shot with the whipped cream makes me want some right now!
A little clothing change and some sugar in them and then the magic happens!
We got a lot of dancing, giggles, and all-around-craziness. It was perfect.
Thanks for the fun day!
One of my roommates from BYU had a beautiful baby girl in December and I was able to photograph her while I was in Utah for Christmas. They moved into a new house on Christmas, so the lack of furniture in the kitchen created a perfect little "studio" for our shoot. When I was pulling out different blankets and hats and things Marilee said, "This is like playing dress-up!" Yep, my job is so much fun it's like playing dress-up! I love it and I love photographing newborns! Ambree was such an angel!
Whitney is another amazing friend from the photography program (in addition to all my photo friends having babies, 3 of my freshmen roommates are pregnant). She recently had her little girl and I'm finally getting around to posting some of these pictures! I was in Utah for a wedding and it was perfect timing so we could do this shoot! Whitney chose the location, which I loved, and she stuck with it even though it was freezing. We did very few pictures in short-sleeves before she changed into something warmer!
Her husband was able to meet us and we got some adorable pics of them together :). As a photographer I don't think she gets many!
