I had the honor to capture lil’ Keegan this morning just a day shy of his week birthday. He is such a good baby – sleeps really well, doesn’t complain too much except for when hungry and just goes with the flow. I suppose that with three siblings he has to learn quickly how to adapt. The last time I saw this lil’ man he was still in his mommy’s belly during their maternity photography session. The miracle of life is just amazing! Enjoy the sneak peek!
Andy was a joy to capture, especially since he’s the son of a friend of mine. Beautiful family J! So happy for you. Enjoy your music video.
I took this set of images of my lil’ Lily around Thanksgiving time, but just now got around to editing them. I just love the different expressions she gave me. I had made this tee pee the day before and really wanted to test it out. I had made a lot of different covers for this fun prop/play area, but chose this one as I thought it worked well with the time of year and with Lily’s outfit. I love the images I got of her on this day. Luckily, this set of portraits works for this week’s photography challenge of “framed” that I’m doing along with several other photographers as well. I just love it when things work out like that!

I just love the glow that women get in pregnancy and when you add just the perfect lighting during those magical hours of the day, it’s just heavenly! This portrait session took place in August. We had a brutally hot summer and we delayed this session a little bit for the safety of baby and mommy, as the original scheduled portrait day was 114 degrees with the heat index. The morning of this session was perfect though. Cooler temps, beautiful early morning sun and comfy subjects produced some beautiful maternity portraits for this family! We were able to mix two different styles into this session outdoors as mom-to-be wanted beautiful images surrounded in nature and dad-to-be wanted more dramatic images of his beautiful wife. Luckily we were able to do both all at one location! I think it turned out beautifully. Enjoy!

So, I had two photo challenges this week with various photographers – “framed” and then “shallow depth of field.” Since I was limited on time this week, I did one photo that suits both of those themes. Pink Noise! I used to have a noise machine that I used at all my newborn portrait sessions, but I now have an app on my iPhone that I use instead. It’s quite magical actually. It basically makes infants (and sometimes parents) fall into a deep sleep while canceling out other noises (like my camera clicking away). There are other sounds I can choose from with this app and I can even mix and match, but so far, pink noise seems to be a winner. What a great tool to have in my bag!
