Never have a met someone, let alone a baby, that looks so good in purple. Alexandra has this beautiful olive complexion... put it next to purple... GORGEOUS! I couldn't get enough of this little one! She is one lucky girl... she has two parents that you can tell, just love her to pieces, and the cutest big brother!!! He loved just kissing on her! What a beautiful family of four!!
Beautiful Nicole. This baby is so gorgeous!! And her big sister?!? These two are SO gorgeous and SO SWEET!!! What a lucky family! Can you feel the love between these two sisters?? Nicole was such a pleasure to work with. I was amazed at her flexibility, especially since she was a bit older than most of the babies I photograph. You gotta look at the photos where her cute little face is resting comfortably on her feet. Yoga baby??? It was a pleasure working with this family and meeting this sweet little girl!
It was SO awesome being invited into Lucas' home to work with him at only 5 days old. Man, what a difference those few days young make! He slept peacefully through most of the session, except of course, when you notice him with the yankees pacifier at the end of the strip. Doesn't he look like the world's youngest sports commentator? It's like he has a whole lot to say about those Yankees. I LOVE it. And when I say he slept "peacefully", I mean peacefully. As the lullaby versions of Taylor Swift serenaded us as we worked, we all stayed relaxed and had a beautiful session.
Baby B was the sweetest baby. He has the sweetest parents who had some great ideas for "props" including the magic hat that dad used at Magic Camp (back in the day). Love it!! I love love love when we get some unique shots that are also meaningful. Here are some of my favorites from our session. Thanks to baby B's mommy for all of her pregnancy advice and tips! I have the best job ever and LOVE talking to new mommie
Taylor. What a beautiful little girl! I swear, her lips are naturally that pink- they were not color enhanced at all. She is just so perfect. And I am always so blessed when I see how loved these new babies are, but Taylor's family is beyond enthralled with their new addition. It was hard to select favorites from this shoot, but some of them are of Taylor's grandmother and GREATgrandmother and grandfather and proud Aunt. And how can I forget Taylor's proud puppy?? I am IN LOVE with this shot of Taylor nuzzled in her dog. Oh, and I got a smile :) Ahh, SUCH a great photo session!
Savannah Willow. What a name! Isn't it gorgeous?! So fitting for such a gorgeous baby. Her parents were SUCH a joy to work with. Their joy for their little girl was all over their faces! I LOVE the shot of Savannah in the bunny ears! Hysterical. I laugh out loud every time I see it. That girl did NOT like hats! And I love the rolls on her belly as she is curled up in the bucket. Precious.
The hair! The lips! I can't get over how beautiful this little guy is!! Soo perfect!! I don't know if it's because I have Spring on the brain, but I swear this baby reminded me of a little chick- especially when he was wrapped in yellow, with his spiked hair sticking out. Love it!
Mom pulled out some old props to go along with my ol' little red wagon, adding to the uniqueness of the shot. Oh man, just check out how cute he is!!!
John Robert. What a sweetie! His mom and dad were such pros with their first newborn (must be mom's expertise as a teacher), and we all marveled at his little chicken-like, 6 day old body. And I also love the look of the baby with dad's tattoos. I also fell in love with their dog Butchie- I've always wanted a Bull dog of my very own. So thankful I had the opportunity to photograph this little guy!
Also, I wanted to thank Mike "Divo" my assistant who came with me on this job. Mike will be accompanying me on all future jobs to help with carrying all of the props that I bring since I'm PREGNANT!
Anyways, more news on that later. I'm still taking jobs through June by the way. So thanks Mike!
Vincent. I love this boy! His has the perfect little mouth and lips! He also has such a proud older brother. Vincent was another one who just loved being in the bucket. I'm tellin ya, *PARENTS* you may want to invest in one of these!!
It was wonderful to meet Ben. The last time I saw his family, Ben was in his mom's belly (see maternity tag). It was wonderful photographing some of those "special moments" that occur between mother and baby. Tracy has no inhibitions and is any photographers dream to work with. We got some beautiful shots as an end result. Thank you Tracy!
