Baby Connor was the last newborn I had in the studio before this blizzard hit, so I'm a little late in posting since we were outside trying to shovel 30 inches of snow, plus try to spend some time with kids in the snow. Hopefully his parents won't be too upset with me once they see these! I mean, look at this cutie pie! I think he has the most perfect little button nose ever, and he even smiled for the camera during family shots! *swoon!!*
Oh sweet, sweet Emily, how adorable you are! Emily is one of my Watch Me Grow babies so this is the second time I had her in the studio and both times she has just been full of smiles and personality. She just turned 6 months old, but has been sitting independently for weeks and is already up on all fours rocking back and forth. She is one determined little lady and wants so badly to join in all the fun with her big siblings, Lillian and Owen. I'm sure by her 1 year session she will be running circles around me!
Last weekend I got some more baby snuggles in with this little guy, baby Ryder. He was so tiny, such a great sleeper, and super adorable. I didn't want him to leave! Mom and Dad share my love of neutrals, so I was happy to use them throughout his session. But, we did make sure to put some blue in there! He really was a rock star for his first photo shoot, and narrowing down the choices of what pictures to include in his gallery has been nearly impossible.
In 2016, one of my resolutions is to take more quality pictures of my own children, not just iPhone photos. The other is to get a fabulous wall display for those pictures, which I can update as the years go on. One advantage of being a professional photographer is that I can order from certain places that the general public can't, and this year I cannot wait to get the display I've always dreamed of!
Normally my studio is off limits to my kids because I don't want them ruining anything, but yesterday evening as I was getting ready to clean up from sweet Emily's 6 month sitter session, Lila, my 16 month old, wandered into the studio. She decided to plop herself right down in the bucket I had out and I thought to myself, "Okay, here's my chance to sneak in a couple of quick pictures." Because she is such a peanut, I put her in the same outfit that I had had the 6 month old in and started snapping away. The result is something I am incredibly surprised, excited, and overjoyed with! I think little miss Lila let me take pictures for a good half an hour and gave me such great expressions that truly capture her personality. She is growing up SO fast, and these pictures helped me to freeze time and remember her like this forever! From the tiny toes, to the curly hair in the back, from the chipped tooth and innocent smile, to the hazel eyes with long gorgeous lashes, she will forever be my baby.
Little Miss Avery has been my only girl in a winter streak of boys, and there's only more boys to come. With her peaches and cream skin, chubby cheeks, and strawberry blond hair, she is just the most perfect bundle of joy! It was a pleasure to be invited into the C family's home for her very first photo shoot and Avery was the perfect sleepy lady!
Oh my goodness, isn't little Eden just simply adorable?! She came to the studio in Kennett Square last weekend to celebrate her first birthday with a cake smash. Mom did Baby-Led-Weaning with her, something I followed with my own daughter, so Eden knew what to do with that cake right away! Mmmmm, icing! She may have been super serious about her eating, but other than that, she was all full of smiles and personality!
