I just love fun, quirky families!  It’s families like this that you look at and just instantly think, “I want to be friends with them!”  (And, as a photographer, think, “I want to photograph them!”)  They need no direction or style advice for their photo shoot…they’re perfect just as their awesome selves!  (All my clients are perfect as they are, of course, but some people just really stand out and stick in your mind.)  Genuine, colorful and upbeat personalities make for great families and great photos.  The photos I love the most are the ones where your family members’ personalities just burst out of the picture!  After all, these images should represent YOU!

I think this family is just fabulous!  Their love for each other (and for color!) certainly contributes to them being ridiculously super cute.  Speaking of super cute, these kiddos are absolutely adorable and so sweet.  I just love this crew and hope to get to take more of their family photos in the future!

This sweet little newborn girl is just so precious!  And I think the name Sloane is lovely, unique and perfectly suited for her.  It’s a name that is cute for a baby, but will also grow with her and work at each stage of life.  I love it!  I am also in LOVE with this nursery!  All the bright, beautiful colors contrasting with the stark white make this room feel so fresh and fun.  Of course the “Every little thing is gonna be alright” sign is awesome and gives the feel that these new parents are pretty chill.  That’s a great way to be when dealing with all the stresses of early parenthood!  No amount of reading or advice can truly prepare you for what you’ll go through with your newborn (especially as every baby is different), so the best thing is to go with the flow and take Bob Marley’s advice in his song!

Three Little Birds

Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing is gonna be all right.
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing is gonna be all right! “

Rise up this mornin’,
Smile with the risin’ sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin’, “This is my message to you-ou-ou: “

Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing is gonna be all right.”
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing is gonna be all right.”

(Good luck getting that song out of your head now!  You’re welcome! 😛 )

I just adore families that love to have fun!  (I know, that seems obvious, but it’s truly refreshing when a family is so comfortable and at ease with just having fun together!)  When the smiles, playfulness and embraces are all natural, it makes my job much easier and the photos SO much better.  I always want people to be “real”…and when my clients’ real personalities are really wonderful, well, it’s just fabulous!

The sweet folks below epitomize what it means to be a fun, loving (and fun-loving!) family!  The way they interact with each other and cause one another to light up is incredibly special.  Let this lovely family be an example for you when you take your family photos (and in everyday life).  Be yourself, let your love for each other show and have fun!  That’s the best advice I can give you as those are the things that make for the best photos (and the best families)!  (Of course I have to add, it also doesn’t hurt to have a photographer who knows what she’s doing! 😛 )

It’s so much fun to witness babies growing, getting more and more alert, developing awesome personalities and becoming so much fun!  The smiles, the laughs, the cooing and ever-increasing mobility…all of these actions are really picking up around the four month mark.  Next up will be sitting unsupported and crawling!  That’s when things really get interesting!

I love these Milestone sessions (ages 3 months – 10 months) which celebrate these ages and achievements that come and go so quickly!  Unless you document it, you’re probably not going to remember exactly what your baby was doing at such and such months old.  The whole of your child’s first year of babyhood will likely be a blissful and sleep-deprived blur when trying to think back on it without the aid of pictures.  (Not that I’m saying they have to be professional photos, of course, but please make a point of taking these precious reminders!)

This sweet and adorable little girl is four months old and such a doll!  I’m already looking forward to her next photo session and seeing how much she will have changed and learned!

It always thrills me to get the call, text or email from a client that their new baby has arrived safely and they are ready to set a firm date for newborn photos!  Having taken the maternity photos and then getting to do the newborn session is such a gorgeous “before & after” where both the before and after are absolutely wonderful!

When I had the privilege of photographing the sweet family below for a maternity session a little while back (see that awesomeness here!), I was so taken with them and knew that this big sister was just going to be THE BEST.  After the fabulous newborn session you see here, I have to say (actually, I’m THRILLED to say!), I was not wrong!  All it takes is a glance at the pictures below to see that this beautiful girl is head over heels in love with her precious little brother.  The whole family is, of course, but seeing those two together is just the sweetest and made for some of the most precious pictures (if I do say so myself!).  This handsome little guy is certainly blessed to be surrounded by unanimous adoration and I know mom and dad are thankful to have such a willing and capable helper in their amazing daughter.  SO MUCH LOVE!!!
