What are some of MY favorite things?
Movie night, lilacs, carrot cake, coffee, compassion, a good bottle of wine, hugs, being silly, Sam Cooke…oh, I could go on for days! But a few things that are at the TOP of my list include: babies, children and dogs. If you know me, you know if there is a baby around-I will most likely be hogging that baby as much as possible. If there are kids in the room; I'll hopefully have them laughing and making silly faces and telling me their favorite joke in no time. And if there is a dog near me I will be petting and scratching that pup until it thinks I'm its new best friend:)
With that said, I'd like you to meet Zander! He is 3 months old and was an absolute joy to photograph. Now this can be a tricky age and many photographers won't even schedule 3 month photos. A 3 month old baby is past the newborn stage, where we can get them all snug as a bug, curled up and sleeping so that we can capture the beauty of their brand new being, BUT they are also still a bit shaky and not yet to the 6 month stage (where they are typically sitting up and will laugh and coo easily.)
I love this age because they are just so wide-eyed and sweet. They are interacting with the parents so much and WAY more expressive than they are as newborns. Often they seem a bit overwhelmed by the sight of my camera (aren't most people? haha, jk!)
I love getting parents to hold them and be involved in the session and since babies change so quickly I can't imagine a parent NOT wanting to document all those changes (whether or not it's done professionally or with dad's Iphone.)
My point is: I don't think there is ever a "bad" age to make photographic memories of someone you love.
So, back to Zander- he's got this very gentle and relaxed demeanor, a head of super thick, soft, reddish hair and unbelievably lovely eyes.
I had to share at least 1 photo of his entire outfit…I LOVE IT!!!
What a sweet boy-his mama is just over the moon:)
Next up? Trinity & Talon!
I adore these two and it is NEVER a dull moment with them:) Talon has NO fear and Trinity is just pure joy. They are a total blast to be around and here are some of my faves from their fall session:
I always get HUGE smiles from these cuties!!!
Couldn't believe this great old truck on their property….yessssssss.
And last but not least…
I did some new photos for Assistance Dogs for Acheiving Independence (ADAI) which is now part of the Ability Center! I think ADAI is an incredible organization and am happy to help them by volunteering some of my time and talent. PLUS I get the added bonus of meeting some truly great people and many wonderful pups who are all into helping others.
Dogs doing laundry? Yes PLEASE! Maybe I can teach Charlie how to fold mine?
Thanks for checking out my blog!
