I had the pleasure of shooting this newborn session near the end of 2014, a couple days after Christmas. I had worked with this sweet family before when their oldest was just 7 months old, so it was a joy to get to see them again and their new little handsome guy. It was my last session of 2014, and a great way to wrap up a busy fall and overall good year. Big brother wasn’t too keen on the fact that there was a new brother in town, but I’m sure they will be the best of buddies someday.
I’ve been antsy to show you these over the past couple of weeks, but have held off so I don’t ruin anyone’s Valentine’s card plans. But now that the big day is here, I can show you the goods!
This was my first studio experience. It was a whirlwind of shooting 14 sessions in 4 hours with a few minute 15 minute breaks for lunch and regrouping. The ages ranged from 5 months to 10 years, and they all came full of energy! My own special Valentine, my husband, provided great assistance in helping me get people checked in and moving props for me. If he didn’t already have a job, I’d hire him any day of the week!
A big thank you to all the families who came out for a fun day! I’m thinking this may have to be an annual event!
I had a mini session this past fall at a private horse farm with this very polite and handsome young man who was home for Thanksgiving break from college. Mom wanted to get some updated photos for the Christmas cards so she bribed and pleaded with him to go, and when that didn’t work, she told him to put on a clean sweater and then blind-folded him and stuffed him into the trunk and drove him to the farm. Okay, maybe not, but I think we all know how much teenage boys love having their photos taken – and he was a tremendously good sport about it. A freshman at Centre College – the college that happens to currently be at the top of my oldest daughter’s choice for colleges in a couple years – I spent most of the session picking his brain about campus life and classes and how much in debt I can expect to be in someday soon. Let’s just say, either she gets a lot of scholarships or I’m going to have to do thousands of mini sessions in the next couple years.
