I love how every single session I have presents a different challenge for me. I love that I'm learning and growing in photography every day.
I had so much fun shooting this rambunctious little two year old. He was so full of energy and running around any chance he could get. At least a quarter of the pictures were of the back of his head as he ran away.
I think toddlers are my favorite age to shoot so far. I just get to chase them around while they discover the world around them.
It's so fun to see their faces light up upon discovery of a truck, or a river, or a big huge turkey. (Scary, scary, right Adrienne?)
So often, I have people apologize when their child is acting out, or they don't want to do what we have in mind. Please don't apologize. I come to every session with the knowledge that there's probably going to be a tear or two shed. It's nothing to be worried about. We'll get all the smiles we need, I assure you.
I love my job, and I love getting to know your little ones.
All sides of your little one.
I really enjoyed spending some time with you guys, and am glad you're back so we can get to know each other better.
I can't wait for what's in store next week! I'm going to shoot at a location that I've been dying to get into for a year. Thanks to everyone for stopping by!
One of the most frequently asked questions I get is "What should we wear?". First and foremost, I want you to come to your session feeling COMFORTABLE.
My biggest tip is that you don't need to be matchy matchy. Would you normally go out with your family all dressed in white/black shirts and khakis? Probably not.
The key word is COORDINATE. Find one or two colors that you love and build your wardrobe around these. Don't be afraid of prints and accesories. Scarves, jewelry, hats. These are all your best friends.
Lots of colors and layers photograph really well. Have fun with it!
Most importantly, if you're feeling a little stuck, don't be afraid to ask for tips! I love to shop and would love to help you look amazing!
Each Wednesday I will try to bring you some wardrobe inspiration. But, I'm not making any promises.
I was so excited when I got a call to do another newborn shoot. Then she mentioned that he was 2 months old and I got a little bit nervous. Any professional photographer could tell you that it's almost impossible to get any type of sleepy, curly, newborn shot past 2 weeks.
This sweet little guy was born 7 weeks early. So at two months old he only weighed around 9 pounds and was still small like a newborn. Sleepy, he was not. Sweating within the first ten minutes, I knew he was going to give me a run for my money.
Then I thought of the vacuum. I flipped it on and he zonked out for the most part. I was able to get a lot of the sleepy shots I was hoping for.
But I must say that I'm happy he didn't sleep the whole session away because he had some KILLER eyes. He's going to have the ladies chasing after him before he's even potty trained.
Big brother was so funny and such a little cutie too. We had him put his shirt back on after this shot, and every picture after he asked if he could please keep his clothes on.
It was great spending the afternoon with you guys. Your boys are so handsome!
