Oh. My. Goodness. I don’t think I could ever love another job like I do being a children’s photographer. And working with newborns has to be one of the most awe-inspiring opportunities for me personally. I am reminded over and over again of just how sweet and precious life is, and what a blessing these little ones are in our lives! It’s also amazing to see just how much they will grow and change over the course of that first year. Love it all!
This little lady was at my natural light studio in Collierville this past week. She was a joy to work with, and I can’t wait to share the rest of her portraits with her family!
We could NOT have had better weather for this session. Especially as I look at the forecast for this week in Collierville, and see nothing even RESEMBLING the gorgeous temperatures we had that day. Where did spring go? Does anyone know what happened? I’d like it back, thank you very much.
Again, sooooo grateful for that perfect night we had to work with. Top off great weather, a fun location like Collierville Square, and throw in a fabulous couple, and things are bound to go well! I had such a great time with them, and enjoyed working with their sweet dog too. That is something I don’t do everyday . Can’t wait to share the rest of their images with them soon, and be sure to check back and see the rest of their session right here.
Miss L may have entered this world a little early, and at a little over two pounds (yep, you heard me!), but she was strong. What an impressive little girl! She visited me for her would-be-newborn pictures when she was around two months old, and she was so perfectly perfect. I mean, really. She might not have slept quite as much as some newborns might in a 5-10 day old newborn session, but she was so content and easy to work with. And those eyes! Aren’t they just breathtaking?
I am so excited to be seeing her again and again as she comes back for the rest of her First Year Sessions here in Collierville! I can hardly wait to see how much she has grown!
It’s just a little over a week away from the first day of spring. I can’t even tell you how excited I am! Beautiful warm weather, sunny skies, and daffodils are already here to usher in the new season.
It’s the perfect time here in Memphis to head back outdoors for a portrait session as well. Looking forward to working with little beauties like these this spring!
I am still trying to play catch up. I am ready to post this sweet girl’s 4 months session, but I wanted to add a few more from here lovely newborn session first. Lynnley came to my home studio in Collierville, and was such a perfect baby. Looking forward to seeing her continue to grow, as she is part of the Baby Plan program! Can’t wait to share our last session with you soon. She’s getting so big!
This girl is such a sweetheart. Absolutely beautiful on the inside and out. I was so touched to be given the opportunity to photograph her at this special age, and to be part of this exciting time of her life, as she prepared for her baptism. Thank you to the S family for letting me celebrate with you!
Yes, I know. I’m behind. When I was faced with the choice of making clients wait for their albums and making my family wait for me to get off of the computer, or skipping posts to move both of the others along faster, I chose the latter. So I am behind. Here’s to a new month, and a goal of catching up on all the fun I’ve been having with clients and family!
To start things off, I thought I’d share this sweet family’s session from the fall, and the gorgeous light we witnessed. I am definitely missing the beautiful fall colors too, but I will gladly accept new leaves and some signs of spring instead. . .
Thanks to the Willard family for sharing their adorable daughter with me for a night. She is a doll. Don’t you think?
Where does the time go? Have all of the holidays really come and gone? Is it really 2013 already?? Time seems to be flying by at an alarming rate. Wouldn’t you agree? I suppose that’s why I am such a sucker for photography. I know photographs can’t freeze time (wish they could once in a while!), but they do manage to hold on to those precious moments we cherish, and allow us to look back at how things once were. They can tell us stories, bring out our best emotions, and teach our children a lesson or two in their own family’s history.
I had the great opportunity of going to the Hostetler home this week to photograph sweet baby Presley. She was adorable! I just love the interactions I can capture when I go to a client’s home, and the memories it gives them as they remember just how things were when they brought their precious baby home. What an exciting time this must be for them, and I hope they enjoy every day with her. You can see how much they treasure and adore her, and it is obvious to me that she is a lucky little girl to be in such a loving and happy home!
So, in keeping with my tradition to bring in the New Year with a new baby, here is Presley’s sneak peek!
Oh, baby boy. You are such a sweetie! Camden was such a good little guy for our session, and I am so excited to share his cuteness with you! Isn’t he just adorable? I just love offering newborn photography here in Memphis because I meet such wonderful people, and get to hold and work with such beautiful new babies. It’s one of my favorite things to do. There is nothing quite like holding a sleeping baby in your arms, or hearing them coo as their mamas hold and talk to them. Such a sweet time, and I’m so glad I can help preserve those memories, as they grow and change so quickly that first year! Congrats to the C family, and I wish the best for this precious little boy.
Time for another sneak peek! I just love the beautiful colors this mom pulled together for their family portrait. They remind me of why I love fall, especially the gorgeous leaves that seem to be turning everywhere you look. Happy Monday everyone!
Now, do you like this one in black and white, or color best? I love how the colors in the brick bring out her shirt, but there is just something about a black and white portrait–doesn’t she look gorgeous?
