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!

Sweet Neighbors: Family and Child Portrait Session Sneak Peek

This sweet family lives across the street from us, and I had so much fun capturing their portraits.   Our focus was the kids, but we managed a family portrait in there as well.    While we did a good bit of the posed child portrait – I love that we also focused on the kids playing and being themselves.   Those photos are so much fun and I love that I got to capture them.  Thank you for a very enjoyable session friends!

Baby D Turns One! Child Portrait Session Sneak Peek

Last year in May we got to meet baby D (http://amerinephoto.com/blog/2013/05/meet-baby-d-newborn-session-sneak-peek/) and his sweet family.


It is hard to believe but he is one now!  He is on the go, walking everywhere and just so adorable with his gorgeous big eyes.


I have adored getting to know his family through these sessions.   You can see what a loving family they are, and how great they are with this little guy.


We had a few requests for specific pictures from family…. one was for a serious portrait.


One was to capture how he and his beautiful mom have the same eyes.


I might have to hire this mom to make signs like these for other clients.  How great is it?


We also just had fun at the park!  I think for this next one our little guy knew just how cute he was…


We even tried a cupcake smash in honor of his first birthday.   He liked the smashing part, but the only eating came with parental assistance.


Here are just a couple more of my favorites.   Thanks for a fun session at the park my friend.  I think you have many great toddler days ahead.
