Zabdiel 6 month photos

I met Zabdiel when he was only a couple of weeks old…Maybe 6 weeks.  Zabdiel’s parents were referred to me by another client of mine.  I love when I get referrals like that!

I was asked to do Zabdiel’s 6 month pictures and a special request from mom.  Mom had just graduated college and didn’t have any pictures taken of her with her cap and gown.  I jumped at the chance to do them!  I’m always wanting to do photos I haven’t had the chance to do.  Graduation pics is one of those!  Now, granted, I took pictures of my daughter on her graduation day from high school.  But this is different.  This was college!  And she wasn’t family!

It took a little bit for little Z to warm up to me, but once he did…he was all smiles for me!

And little Z even had a matching cap and gown to cheer Mom on at her graduation!  Loved it!IMG_6757 copy IMG_6794 copy.jpg.2 IMG_6910 copy IMG_6988 copy IMG_6992 copy IMG_7051

Amelie’s First Birthday Cake Smash

I know it’s been a while.  I have been busy these last couple of weeks with photo sessions!  I am going to try and get most of them blogged within the next couple of weeks.

I met Amelie last year when I did Christmas mini sessions.  This is where I met most of my current clients.  Amelie is a very serious little girl!  I love the pictures I get of Amelie even though I get only maybe 1 smile per session.  That’s okay though.  I love when she comes into my studio.  She smiles at mom and dad and I’m able to get a couple of shots.

Amelie came to the studio a couple of weeks ago to do her first birthday cake smash.  I love doing cake smashes.  They are so much fun to watch as they dig into their cakes.  Some of the ones I’ve done; the child isn’t sure about the cake and frosting.  Either mom or dad has to encourage them to put their hands into it.  Some kids?  Refuse to touch it.  Recoils when they get anything like frosting on their little fingers.

Not Amelie.  As soon as she tasted that sweet goodness, she was all in!  Even double fisted at one point!

This was the first time I had used seamless backdrop paper, and I loved it so much!  I only have one right now, and it’s a bone color, and as you can see, was perfect for this photo shoot.

I look forward to seeing Amelie in my studio more as she grows up into a beautiful little girl!  And one of these days, I’m going to get her to smile at ME!

Meet Ben

This is Ben…6 months old.

I first meet Ben last year during my Christmas mini sessions.  Ben and his sister came to have some pictures taken.  I fell in love at first sight!  Ben has a smile that is so contagious.  And you can see the love between this brother and sister so much.

I asked mom what is unique about Ben…sticking his tongue out like a puppy.  He found his tongue in the last couple of months, and just loves showing it off!  Even though he can’t physically talk yet, Ben sure knows how to tell you exactly what he wants or what he is thinking!

I’ve seen Ben and his sister several times since Christmas, and love every single time that I get to see them.  I love watching them grow up right in front of me.  I can definitely tell Ben is going to be a heart breaker when he gets older!

We did two sessions with Ben…first indoors in my studio.  Then Ben got sick and we had to postpone the rest of his session.  I was finally able to get an outdoor session with Ben in town, and I love the pictures I got of him looking at himself in the mirror.  He is on the move now; so mom and I had to keep moving him back away from the mirror.  But he always managed to get right back in front of it and just look at himself.

I look forward to many more sessions with Ben in the future.
