Ahhh!! Just look at this sweet little thing! And all of his amazing hair 🙂 The minute I saw Beverly’s pictures of him in the hospital, I knew that it was going to be a great newborn session. He is just perfect!! And I was right. Not only is he ridiculously adorable, he was alert and happy during family photos and then slept like a dream as I posed him and put all of these adorable little hats Beverly had purchased just for this!
Beverly is a friend, and I loved seeing her soak up every minute of her 3rd pregnancy. She had a 7 year break between #2 and #3 and with that comes a whole new appreciation of the wonder and excitement of it all! She didn’t do a maternity session with her first two boys, but she knew immediately that she would this time around, and I’m so glad she did. And SO glad that she chose me to do it for her!
This family will always have a special place in my heart. Over 5 years ago, I had my very first paid newborn session…. and they were twins! A few of the images from their session remain some of my favorites even now. Just look at this cuteness! We’ve done a session every year since then and it’s always so much fun to see them again. We had an absolutely beautiful night and sunset in Palos Verdes this year and they are always dressed so perfectly for the setting. Couldn’t have asked for more!
The holiday season is a busy one for all of us, but especially family photographers! I love the sessions every weekend and even sneaking some in during the week. So many beautiful families all dolled up in beautiful clothes. So many smiles and laughs. I love seeing my images on their photo cards when clients send me a holiday card! But, what I don’t love is that I never seem to find the time to share those images here. I’ve decided to do a few blog posts well after the fact to show those sessions some blog love!
Here are a few of my favorites from my mini sessions back in October!
Once a year mini sessions are coming VERY soon!! Most spots have been pre-booked by former clients, but there are a few sessions still available. Please call or email asap to reserve your time!
I am beyond thrilled to have these images of my little people. I absolutely can not wait to get them printed big and up on my walls so I can stare at them all day! I love color and it’s so hard for me to convert an image to black and white- I hate to lose that color! I’m so thankful to a photographer friend who inspired me to take these though and to do them in black and white. Without the color, the focus is truly on their sweet little faces…the background fades to nothing. No distractions. Just those open, thoughtful and trusting eyes I stare into when cuddling in bed at night. The sweet little lips and cheeks I cover in kisses. The smiles that make my heart happy. I’m kind of bursting with love right now. (I won’t be printing the text for the wall images- just wanted to document some of their personality here for the blog and my future family albums!)
I am so lucky to have such great clients and especially the ones who return year after year. This is a family I have had the joy of photographing on at least 5 different occasions now! If you peruse the blog and the galleries here on my website, you are sure to see them over and over! I found it especially considerate of them to coordinate their wardrobe with my new website colors, haha!
That’s not to say that newborn/toddler twins always make it easy on me. I’m going to estimate at least 30 attempts were made to get this first photo to happen, but there is something very satisfying when you work that hard for something and then get it!
Some of my favorite newborn shots are the ones that just happen. No way you could “pose” a baby like this…he did it on his own and then held it for the longest time while I tried a few different angles/settings.
V family- thanks again!! It was fun as always!!
