After having to reschedule Easton’s 9-month shoot due to rain, I was so happy yesterday evening was such perfect weather for pictures. Looking at these now I am struck. . . I remember when big sister was in her mama’s belly. Where does the time go?
When I first heard I was going to be photographing triplets – I just didn’t even know what to think. It is hard enough sometimes getting one child to cooperate at a photography shoot, not to mention three under the age of one! However this family couldn’t have been any nicer or more relaxed. And the babies – well they were as cute as could be as so cooperative. . . until the end! =)
Many thanks to this wonderful family for having me come and photograph their special little ones!
Amber and her family were one of my first clients. She was pregnant back then with her first. Now here she is with her two kids. . . Here’s a sneak peek at our session:
It has been so fun to watch this family grow. My first session with the mom was when she was pregnant with her daughter. Now here they are with two kids!
Special thanks to this awesome family who were gracious and flexible about rescheduling due to Baby Simpson’s birth.
I am doing a shoot tomorrow and part of it will be in the “amber room” at the Guthrie. It reminded me that I had been there once before with some fellow photographers and the boy. I hadn’t blogged these pictures yet, so I thought it was a good time to. He looks so much smaller/younger in these pictures yet I can see he was full of wonder and determination. It is amazing to think it was just about six months ago. . . As a side note – the Metrodome ceiling had just collapsed, which you can see in the picture below.
Summer is always a fun time of the year for many reasons – no snow, no freezing temperatures, swimming pools, the sun, long days. . . It is also the time of year that several dear college friends come “home” to visit. I am always excited when their visit includes a stop at our house.
On this day my friend Brooke was back in Minnesota with her husband and kids. So what do you do when your college friend comes in town? Throw a party of course! Eight adults and ten kids strong, we had a great night of eating, playing and catching up.
While I had them there, I snapped a few family shots. . . The first set is of Brooke and her family:
How did I not realize before how much they look alike?
Next I got to take some shots of our college friends Pete & Karyn and their kids:
Can you tell which kid is more quiet and which is more lively? I think she giggle the entire time!
And finally I caught Amy having a little lovey time with her hubs:
Last night I enjoyed a fun session with a mom I have known for several years. I took pregnancy pictures of her with her first; now it was time to take a couple of her pregnant with her second. She also wanted a shot of her and her daughter and then her daughter alone as she is just about to celebrate her second birthday.
I just loved how her daughter’s hair curled in the humidity. In fact I set up for this amazing shot with the sun framing the back of her head and all the curls when I started feeling this pain on my leg. I ignored it at first, but then there was more and more. I looked down only to see hundreds of ants all over my legs; they were stinging me! I had inadvertently kneeled on their nest while setting up to take the picture. Ahhhhh. . . it was a bit traumatic. Luckily mom and child were unscathed. And seeing the pictures, it was all worth it. Here is a little sneak peek:
Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing one of my daughter’s friends and her family. Here is a sneak peek – more to come!
This little sweetheart’s photos are edited. Here is an example of what a newborn proof set from a shoot might look like.
