Opal – Eight Months Old

Baby Opal! One of my favorite babies in the world, for many reasons. She belongs to one of my best friends, Katie. She is also the first and only baby (other than my own) that I’ve ever experienced watching (and photographing) her being born. So our connection is more than a little bit special … watching someone take their first breath of life does something to you. 🙂 She is now eight months old, smiling, crawling, snuggling with her mama, watching her big brother Silas … and I loved capturing all of these things at her home on a cold January day with some beautiful sunlight. Silas is four years old, and I love seeing the person that he’s becoming too … He has so much personality! Check it out.

Patrick – Six Months

Patrick and his brother Luke are so sweet. I loved meeting them and their parents when I went to their house to take Patrick’s six month photos. Patrick has the most gorgeous blue eyes! I loved all of Luke’s expressions … the way Rachel smiles when she’s looking at Patrick … this session was a dream for me. I also added one photo in this blog post that was completely unplanned, unposed, and natural – Luke’s dad reading to him while Patrick was having pictures taken. This photo truly captures what I love about lifestyle photography. It is a sweet, real moment in time … a fleeting moment that upon viewing a few years down the road will trigger all of the scents, sounds, emotions of being the parent of a young child … Something completely unlike any other experience in life.

Forgive my sentimentality, but it’s true.

Without further wordy ado, I give you Patrick’s six month photos, complete with the people that Patrick loves most.

Owen – Six Months Old

Oh, sweet Owen and his cheeks! This shoot happened in late September …. but I have to share it because I love Owen and this little family so much. Lindsay is my cousin, and we went to a special place where they had some of their wedding photos taken a few years ago when they got married. The tree wasn’t changing colors yet, but it was still beautiful in the morning sunlight. Here are some of my favorite photos from this session.

milo & mj – three months old

This is my lovely cousin Kate & her family! She wanted to do a three-month session for her twin boys, Milo & MJ (Michael James), and we spent most of the time just capturing them as they interacted with each other, which is the photo style that I absolutely love. My husband Andy was able to shoot this session with me, and he took some of the amazing shots that I’m happy to share with you in this post.

meet lainie.

this sweet, wide-eyed, adorable little girl is my one and only niece, lainie. her full name is alaina lynn, but we lovingly refer to her as lainie bug, or “yay bug” as jackson calls her.

she lives about seven hours away from me, so i only get to see her every two or three months. i always have to take pictures of her, because i just can’t get enough of how sweet she is. here she is, at ten months old.
