Welcoming Baby #2

I did pictures recently for a client of my friend who is a doula (labor support). They had just welcomed their second child into the world and were excited to get some new family pictures. While I was thankful that it wasn't raining that day I was disappointed that it was so cold! So we obviously did more indoor shots than outdoor! What a cute family!

Beautiful Family

Another family photo shoot. Weather was nice. It had cooled off so we were not sweating through the whole session like the last one!

Hints & Tips for a Successful Family Photo Session

Helpful Hints For Your Family Portrait Session

~ Keep it Simple! - Solid colors or simple patterns are best. If bringing multiple outfits try to bring a variety of colors, so there is a good contrast from outfit to outfit. *Don't forget to coordinate the same color in outfits for the whole family to keep photos cohesive.

~ For kiddos: Feel free to bring a couple of outfits. Don't forget the basics: socks, shoes, simple accessories, etc. If possible make it clothes that the child likes and is comfortable in. If a kid is comfortable then they are far more likely to cooperate and be happy for pictures!

~ Maternity - a stretchy or button down shirt is good for easily exposing your belly for a few photos. Wear something comfortable and figure flattering to show off your growing belly. Black and white are great colors for maternity pictures - they help draw the attention to your blossoming belly!

~ Favorites ~ A great way to personalize your photo session is to include your sports, hobby, favorite toy or baby blanket, your pet or collectibles or family heirlooms, etc.

~ Just In Case - Its helpful to have a brush/comb, chap stick, makeup, or even spare outfits if you are dealing with babies/toddlers, etc for touch ups during the session.

~ Treats - If you think it would be helpful, bring snacks, treats to help encourage smiles, etc from your children (or husband!).

Micah 3mos Pix

Here are a few pix from a photo shoot of my friend's baby boy. He is a chunk! Now that he's gotten a little older I can see more of his big sister in him. Their both cutie pies!

Justin & Trisha

Saturday I had the pleasure of taking the pictures for my cousin's wedding. While there were a couple of minor hiccups throughout the day (the candlelighting made for dark photos of the ceremony and reception), all in all it came together beautifully. They are an adorable couple with a precious baby girl and I am so happy for them! Here are a few of my favorite shots.

Senior Cousin!

I had a great time doing my cousin's senior pictures today! We wandered around the IMA for an hour or so taking photos here and there. She has done some modeling in the past so she was the perfect subject! Isn't she beautiful? ;-)

Charity Pix

I had the privilege of giving the gift of pictures to some special families last week. I spent the afternoon at the park and took pictures nearly the whole time we were there! It was so much fun and I can't wait to give them discs with their pictures on them! I hope they like them as much as I do!

Beautiful Baby Boy!

Some friends of mine just had their second child, a bouncing baby boy! He is such a cutie! Big sis was not in the mood to be photographed the day I came over to their house for our family photo shoot. I did manage to get a few good shots of them though. Congrats!
