I hope I never ever have to stop photographing Emily and her siblings….and the entire rest of her extended family for that matter!  Not only are they just the sweetest bunch, but it has been so fun to see them grow and all the little personalities of siblings and cousins develop.  During Emily’s six month session, our fingers were crossed that she’d be a little less serious than her big sister, who completely refused to smile for pretty much her entire first year during her sessions. Well, Miss Emily did not disappoint with smiles that were much easier to come by:)

When Ashley contacted me to set up Avery’s one year session, I was a bit in disbelief that this sweet girl was already turning one. The last time I photographed her, she was less than two weeks old!  That was also in my old and cramped studio, so the opportunity to spread out in the new space and even shoot outside under the apple trees was so much fun. Miss Avery was simply perfect for her session. Even if we didn’t get much for smiles, her quirky little expressions defined her adorable personality perfectly.

I can’t say it enough…Layna was absolutely perfect for her studio newborn session. Just two years ago or so, I had the privilege of meeting her amazing parents when they welcomed one of her big brothers into the world. And lucky for me, they quickly have become some of my favorite repeat clients, so I am just beyond excited for them with the newest addition of their sweet little girl.

This sweet little girl came into the studio for her very first photo session yesterday, and I was so excited to meet her. I have been photographing Miss Emily’s family for so many years that I’ve lost count now! Emmi has some pretty awesome parents along with a great big sister and brother who obviously are so in love with her. And not unlike her older siblings, Emily decided to challenge me during her session as well. Not so luck for her, I am pretty patient and love a challenge;)

I’d have to say I’m pretty lucky in that I get to spend lots of time with this sweet girl. Over the past year, my family and I have gotten to know Jordan and her family quite well, and we just adore them all. It’s also a pretty good thing that I can’t have any more children, because Jordan is not the best baby to deter you from wanting another!  Not only is she stinkin’ cute, but her personality is simply amazing. She almost never cries, loves pretty much everyone and did I mention how cute she is?! And when it came to photographing her one year session, she was perfect as usual. All smiles and willing to do whatever I wanted, Jordan rocked her session. Here are just a few favorites…

This session was a bit bittersweet as my tiniest niece is already turning one!  How in the world did that happen? And who is going to make me a new niece or nephew now?! Miss Maggy is just the sweetest with cheeks for days and a couple older siblings who just adore her. My sister had big plans for this session and after her multiple requests and visions, I really hope I pulled this off for her. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how this was going to go since Nina and Tobin didn’t seem excited to be in the studio. However, it didn’t take long for them to warm up and take the studio from a shy vibe to complete chaos. So much laughing and screeching! Enjoy this little peek;)

Meet Helena. She is just the sweetest. And that’s probably because she comes from one of the sweetest families I know. She’s also the youngest of SIX, so she’s probably just laying low to she gets the rest of her siblings all figured out;)  Here are a few of my faves…

After meeting Miss Alice and her parents in the hospital, I was so excited when they decided to bring her to the studio for a full session. Most newborn photographers recommend scheduling newborn sessions within 7-14 days of birth, since there is a good chance that the baby will sleep for at least a small part of their session. Well, Alice was definitely within the right time frame, however, she insisted on being awake for every single shot;) Here are a few of my favorites from her session…

So, remember back a couple posts ago where I mentioned our neighbors and their boys having babies recently. Well, you’ve already met Violet, now it’s Killian’s turn:)  Now Killian probably should’ve been a blog post before Violet, but this sweet girl had other plans for coming into this world. Yes, she was born first, but she was born six weeks early!  She actually wasn’t due until after Violet and has only been home from the hospital for a couple weeks. This also means that technically she’s not a newborn, but she is definitely still tiny enough to play the part. And since she’s a little older, that also meant I would need to work pretty hard for every shot. This little one is not a big fan of sleeping and just has her own set of rules that everyone else has got to follow.

When we bought our house a little more than ten years ago, I never would’ve guessed that we would be blessed with neighbors who would so quickly become more like family. Which of course also means that it was hard to imagine their teenage boys growing up and having babies of their own just a week or so apart! Well, that very thing happened and I couldn’t have been more excited to gift each baby girl with their very first photo session. First up is Violet’s sneak peek; a perfect model for her session at just four days old.
