I love when a family has great personal elements in their home’s decor.  Whether it’s family photos or eclectic pieces that show individual style, I love anything that’s unique to that specific family.  One of the neatest examples that I’ve seen of this is the wall of framed children’s artwork you’ll see in the pictures below.  Go ahead and scroll down to take a look.  I’ll wait.

Seriously, how awesome is that?!?!  I see this and think the following thoughts.  “Wow!  Those are really cool looking drawings!”  “I’d put those up even if my own child didn’t draw them!”  “Will my kid ever draw anything that cool?”  “Will this family ever be in my home to know if I decide to steal their idea and do a framed artwork wall?”  Either way, I love it!  There is so much to love about this awesome family, from their adorable little girls to the sweet bond that they all share, but I have to say that their incorporation of the artwork wall is one of the things that makes me love them most!

It has been awhile since I’ve spotlighted some gorgeous underwater maternity photos!  With (hopefully) beautiful weather here and Spring Break starting pretty much NOW, I figured this was the perfect time to break out some incredible images from an awesome session.  In most of my posts, I use a collage to display session photos, but these are so unique that I want to showcase them individually.  You won’t find many photographers in our area doing underwater maternity photos, but I absolutely LOVE them!  There are just so many interesting angles and ways of capturing light, colors and the maternal form underwater!  See for yourself!

You might recognize this pretty girl and her lovely blue dress from a couple different posts over the last month or two.  There were so many fun images from this session that I had to divide them among multiple posts!  This little beauty was so fabulous on her own that I thought her solo shots deserved their own post.  It’s not just that she’s adorable; she has such a wonderful spirit and fun personality as well.  She is so captivating and her energy is contagious!

(P.S.  If you’d like to see more of the photos from this session with this cutie pie and her family, click here or here.  Want to see even more cuteness from a little further back?  You can see a post of little brother in his precious nautical nursery by clicking here.  If you’re interested in viewing their gorgeous Momma’s beachy maternity photos, click here.  Looking through the sessions this family has done with me, you’ll surely understand why I love them so much!)

When you look at the pictures below, you might get a little confused thinking that I accidentally posted a photo shoot for a baby modeling campaign.  Gerber?  GAP?  Carter’s?  Nope!  I assure you, this is just the beautiful child of one of my fabulous clients!  For real, you guys, how gorgeous and photogenic is this baby boy!?!?   I know, I know, ALL babies are cute…but this kid is seriously a model baby!  Such a sweet face, adorable amount of squishiness and perfect disposition, I can’t get over it!

Okay, I’ll try to stop gushing about how handsome this little guy is.  Seriously, I think all the babies I photograph are perfect and adorable.  That’s one of the main reasons I don’t do props, costumes, “fluff” or gimmicks…the pureness of a baby is perfection on its own!  I don’t think he or she needs to be “decorated” for pictures.  Please know, if you like lots of “bling” on your baby, I’m not criticizing you, but I’m probably not the right photographer for you!

Little girls often get the reputation for being super sweet and precious with their baby siblings, but I have certainly known some little boys who couldn’t be any sweeter!  (In the interest of full disclosure, as the mother of a son and aunt to two nephews, I do have a bit of a bias and special place in my heart for little boys!)  The adorable big brother in the photos below is such a great example of a big-hearted boy who loves his baby brother (as well as his mamma and daddy).  Seriously, could he be any cuter or sweeter?  This whole family is so great and photogenic, which helped make photographing them such a breeze!

Side note: Please don’t feel like your family has to be “sweet” or naturally photogenic for me to enjoy photographing you though!  I also love rowdy, quirky, crazy, goofy and all types of families…variety is the spice of life!  The most important thing to me is that you and your family come to me just as you are…that’s what I want to capture!
