I just love the cheeks on this little man. His mom Jen, a fellow photographer and I did a quick photo exchange last week mostly so we could each get a new facebook profile pic. Lucky for me I was awarded the opportunity to photograph this cutie again. I have to say, being in front of the camera is definately not my comfort zone but thanks to Jen I actually have a few photos of myself that I really like. I am so excited for our spring family photo shoot. Check out her fantastic photos on her blog http://jenifersander.blogspot.com/. Thanks Jen, next time I will be way more relaxed!!
I was very excited when I heard this little one finally made her debut knowing I would be doing this shoot. Her mom is a friend of mine and I was very privileged to be at her older brother’s birth just over three years ago. Sad for me that I missed hers. Having been in their beautiful home in the past I knew the lighting would be amazing.( I think they should rent out the space to me for a studio!!!) Sweet baby “E” cooperated and gave me some great sleeping shots. She looks so peaceful. Big brother “C” is all boy, and had a few minutes for me and quick snuggles for his sister. I tried to push the envelope and get some just of him but when I asked he ran away saying “no thank you!!” Thank you Heather for allowing me into your very busy, tiring time of adjustment with your beautiful family. Enjoy.
It is hard to believe that it was a year ago that I first photographed this sweet little man. He has grown and changed so much. I have decided that one year olds are the best for photographs, especially when they are not yet walking. Thank you Kaila and Shawn for having me document Ethan’s first year. Here are a few that I promised. Lot’s more to come. Enjoy!
Fall is in full swing. The girls are back at school, dance and skating and with Brooklyn in kindergarten 2 or 3 full days per week I am finding time again to pursue what I love to do…photography. I was asked by this sweet little boy’s auntie (whom I work with) back in the spring if I would be interested in doing his newborn photos. Of course I couldn’t refuse! I met mom Amy the day she was being discharged from hospital to set up a convenient time in the next week to get together. As the first week is optimal,day 5 of age it would be. I was very excited….all I could think about was the squishy, baby folding I could do. And to top it off he was jaundice and sleepy, perfect! Well, this little man decided to wake up on day five(meaning his jaundice levels were decreasing). Good for him, not so good for me. We did manage some great shots, but he wanted nothing to do with being folded or squished. Newborns, they are not predictable! Big brother Ben was on the move and not too interested in getting his pictures done. I was able to catch a couple. Thank-you so much Amy and Shawn for inviting me in to your very busy first week with your precious baby. I hope you are getting settled into your new place. Thanks too to Auntie Kate for the referral! Here are just a few.
With ominous black clouds looming and the threat of a thunderstorm, we were lucky to get the shoot done just in time. The weather went from bright sun to dark in a matter of an hour. Thank you Remy and Lucky for having me capture some beautiful memories of the four of you. I know kids don’t love being in front of the camera on vacation but they did great. You have beautiful family. Hope you enjoy what you see here. There are many more to come!
