I had the opportunity to meet little baby Nicholas and his gorgeous parents, Sara and Michael for his newborn session. I just loved watching these new parents with their 10 day old baby - they were so attentive and jumped on the chance to scoop him up for snuggles anytime he became fussy. I just fell in love with Nicholas and I LOVE the images we were able to capture if this sweet, precious boy!
I met Ava Maria and her sweet mom, Heidi, this weekend to do Ava's 1st birthday photos. As soon as I walked in the door, Ava Maria took to me and was super smiley. I just loved her big smile! Heidi was prepared with several outfits to choose from and a gorgeous homemade smash cake. And it was so much fun to play with Ava while getting some adorable photos! Plus it really helped that Heidi was ready to sing, dance around and act silly in order to get those great, toothy smiles!
This past Saturday I did a maternity session for a wonderful couple! This is going to be their first baby and they are both super excited for the upcoming birth of their baby girl in January. We had a beautiful fall day and got our session done just in time for a snow storm! Maternity sessions are quickly becoming one of my favorite sessions to photograph, especially with new parents, because you can just sense the perfect mix of excitement and nervousness. They were so much fun to photograph and it was so great to see them laugh and interact together!
Yesterday I met a family at Hartwood Acres for a family session. The weather was not cooperating with us, but everyone was such a trooper! We ended up freezing cold and soaked, but we had a blast walking around the mansion to find spots to take pictures. And the girls really got into it! This was such a fun and easy going family!!
This past year I have been asked to do 'back to school' photos for my husband's little cousin, Skylar. This year we decided to do fall photos and decided that Oakland would be a fun location. Skylar participates in various programs at the museums in Oakland so it was a great place for her session. The leaves were still gorgeous around Heinz Chapel and the Cathedral of Learning and we enjoyed picking out the perfect spot for her close-up. I've known Skylar since she was a young toddler and it has been so great to watch her grow up into the dynamic girl that she is today!
This week I added another newborn to the group of babes that I have photographed in the past year. The mother also had a special request to include their little pup in the photos as well - and as a fellow dog lover, I was super excited!! This sweet girl was the perfect model - super sleepy and easy to comfort. And the parents stayed close to provide lots of love in between shots. I really love the photos we got and I'm so excited to share some of my favorite shots!
I did a 1st birthday photo session for Miss Amelia - the daughter of my friend who I have been photographing since her mommy's maternity photos. It has been a really amazing experience to do her photos every 3 months. I have loved the opportunity to see her grow and develop over the past year! She is such a happy, beautiful baby girl and I can't wait to see her grow over the years to come!
