I waited ONE entire year to do this wedding. Knowing Mary and Wes, I knew they would rock it with the location choice, with the theme and with their artistic attitude. They definitely did not disappoint me (nor the guests) and it is probably one of my favorite wedding gigs. Pardon the overload of photos here, it was hard to not include them all.
I am forever grateful for clients who allowed me to join them on a very special day, the day they gave birth to their babies. Birth photography is my favorite type of session. It is so intense and packed with such emotions in a very short time.
Audrey was every newborn photographer's dream; she slept soundly through it all and woke up very curious with her surroundings. This also was the session I got to use my 105mm macro lens for the first time. I can say this, I am so very happy with the results!
I had SO much fun when I did a couple's Save-the-Date session on their private property. It was an exhilarating experience I would cherish forever. Imagine my thrill when I was asked to go back again to do a senior portrait! That place and that family is simply beautiful, I left the session with a huge ear to ear grin.
Cake smashes are a funny thing. I swear, in my 3 years of photography, 70% of babies HATE the cake. This one? She wouldn't even try. She flat out ignored the cake and was so adorable in her polite refusals.
The Fooses are Little People and got in touch with me for their last son's Senior Portrait and Family session. I had my oldest son with me to be my little assistant. This session was exactly why I love photography. I get to meet people and experience life more through sessions. The Fooses were really nice and they were very open by asking my son and I if we had any questions about Little People. My son responded that he did not. The mother said, "surely, you must be curious! It's okay to ask!" Eitan replied that he had a teacher who is also a Little Person. When chatting with the family, I couldn't help it, but feel like that their concept of community within the Little People are exactly the same as my community, the Deaf people.
You cannot go wrong when your session is set up with vibrant colors. This family found me through the website and told me that they were doing the very hungry caterpillar theme. I was thrilled when they brought fruits and toys to the session, it added character to the photos. This baby was not shy at all, he had no problem smiling and laughing in front of my camera.
The best part of my sessions is meeting new people. The next best part? Finding new locations. This session was an epitome of both. The session was done on a private property, hundreds and hundreds of acres. We rode on a small jeep to go up to the top of a hill. It was such an exhilarating experience that I had a smile plastered on my face for days. The couple I did the session with were genuine and a lot of fun. I could easily hang out with them all day. I wish them the best of luck on their Wedding Day!
I got to do Eliora's cake smash and one year old portrait (with her older brother in the mix). Braxton (the brother) was actually my VERY first cake smash client, ever. Their mom is a good friend of mine and I love them dearly. I cannot wait to take more photos of them as they grow. Be sure to check out Eliora's journey through this blog's link to complete the year's circle of life.
