This sweet little girl must have been practicing for her cake smash sessoin. She dug right in and did AMAZING! Too cute and so much fun!
It always amazes me how quickly a year goes. Olivia came in for her newborn session and several other sessions through out the year. It's been so much fun to see her change, hit milestones, and see her personality develop. She's quite the little character and has so many faces.
Sometimes little ones are very unsure of having their photos taken, especially by strangers. Usually I'm pretty good at getting them to warm up to me, at least enough to get some good photos. Sweet Caroline wasn't a big fan of having her photos done, or of me really, but we still got some great photos and she's a beautiful little girl.
Some little ones are just more serious then others. We never can anticipate how a session will go. Kason is a serious little guy and would rather be held by his mommy, then have me take his photos. His older brother Wes is very opposite and LOVES the camera. I've been photographing them both since they were born. I love getting to see them grow and the differences in personalities. We did this session in 2 parts. Kason was not a happy camper in the studio and did not like the Cake Smash, however big brother was eager to sneak in for a bite. A few weeks later we got together at a park and tried for some more life-style type shots. The results were a little better but still no big gins. This is just who he is and that perfectly fine cause he's still cute as can be!
We've finished documenting Matteo's first year. I just can't believe it, one year already! Mom chose a nice rustic theme for her handsome young man. He wasn't to sure about his cake. I'm not sure if it's because he thought it really was a stump or maybe he needs to work on his taste for chocolate ;)
This year I decided to do something a little different. I invited Santa into my studio to not just do photos with the kids but hang out with them. Each child/family had 20 minutes with the big guy. They made a craft, read a story, played or just hung out. It was great. It really eased the fear for some kids and to see how excited they were really warmed my heart. Even Santa loved the idea and looks forward to next year.
Can't believe a year has flown by since this little guy first came to me as a sweet little newborn with a head full of dark brown hair. He's such a handsome fella. We took advantage of a dry day and captured some Fall color with his parents before heading to the studio for his Cake Smash session.
When I was contacted by Meggan to photograph her and her baby I was a bit nervous. She's a photographer that recently relocated here from Arizona. Photographing another photographer always makes me nervous. When they came to the studio I was instantly relaxed. Meggan is so much fun to work with and her baby is just adorable and full of personality. As I photographed the two of them together I wished I had done this with my kids when they were babies. Watching Meggan and her son and the love and bond between each other was the sweetest thing. It's moments like this we need to capture and cherish forever. I promise you'll never regret it. You'll regret not having them because of your insecurities, not enough time etc.
