When Your Aunt Babysits…

So I babysat my adorable niece last week, and what happens when a photographer babysits her niece?  She gets her 9 month portraits taken of course!   I could not help it and it was a lot of fun.  She thought it was great playtime and kept trying to come get me.   This truly is a wonderful age.   I love how the portraits came out so I had to share just a few.

Meet Sweet Baby E: Baby Portrait Session

This sweet girl won my heart – especially because I could just see how much her mom and dad loved her.   They would smile down at her and she would give them back the best smile – it was such a great feeling to witness that love.   They have patiently waited for their sneak peek so without any more of my ramblings here it is.

A Soccer Playing Family: Family Portrait Sneak Peek

I had the honor of getting to photograph this family the other morning – I say honor because it truly was such a fun enjoyable session.   This family was just full of personality and super sweet.    We were worried about rain but went ahead with the session, and actually ended up with a gorgeous morning!   I’m glad they brought a soccer ball with them – all three kids play soccer and it made a great way to end the session.  With that, here is the sneak peek!

Seriously Adorable: Child Portrait Sneak Peek

I love taking portraits of 6 month olds – probably one of my favorite ages.   They can sit.  They don’t run away.   They are just so adorable.   Usually they are all smiles – but my latest baby was not having that.   She reminds me so much of my younger one – my Katherine was such a serious baby.    I even remember asking the doctor about it – now that seems silly because she is the one who makes us all laugh.     Some babies are just serious, and this one last week was seriously beautiful.   Don’t worry – the parent ‘fly’ technique still worked to get a smile!

Surrounded By Boys: Family Portrait Session Sneak Peek

It is definitely summer!  My days are filled with swim team, play dates and lots of laundry it seems like… but I am still fitting in some photography.  My girls are actually at camp this week so I’m catching up with a sneak peek from a few weeks ago.  I took the senior portraits for this lovely lady earlier this spring, and we recently took the time to update the family portraits as well.   Other than mom and big sister, the rest of the family is all boys!   It was a fun session at the park and it was great to see this sweet family again.  With that – enjoy!
