It’s that time of year again- the beach sessions have begun! I truly enjoyed every moment with this sweet family during our time together! Their little boy went to preschool with my oldest son. One year, six out of the eight moms in the preschool class were expecting babies (including the two of us!). Our daughters were born exactly one month apart and they both just turned two! As you can imagine, a beach session with two little ones is so fun because everything is exciting to them. We checked out the seashells and played in the sand in between shots (and Grandma even joined in!). I’m so glad we get to call this beautiful place home!
Oh, Marriner ❤️ This pretty girl slept almost her entire session and was (literally) a dream to work with! Her mama requested blush, sage, and gray and I jumped at the chance to use some green on a girl. A few weeks after I met sweet Marriner, I had the opportunity to photograph her extended family on the beach, which was so much fun (that session will be blogged soon!).
Here are some of my faves from my time with this beautiful little lady:
Aubrey’s newborn session was filled with soft, feminine colors, like purple and pink, and featured her gorgeous nursery. Her parents are both local veterinarians, so of course, a tiny, stuffed puppy made an appearance (I love incorporating these personal touches into sessions!). We also captured the new family of three snuggling and creating memories in Aubrey’s perfectly decorated nursery. I couldn’t be happier to have met this adorable family and shared a tiny part of their new beginning!
Alex was the rainbow after the storm, well many storms, for his parents. He was born after several heartbreaking losses, including a second trimester loss and just a few days later after that, the loss of his maternal grandfather. After all of that grief, Alex’s parents were so excited to learn that he was on his way and I believe he has brought so much love and light to their lives already.
Because he has Scottish roots, we incorporated plaids in his session. I’m in love with the little cap, but I also had to show his full head of hair (I just wanted to play with his hair the entire session!) We used lots of yellows, greens, and blues throughout his session. The nursery (with the beautiful mural designed by his mama) was the perfect backdrop to capture images of his gorgeous family!
I entered several of these images into an international newborn photography contest and I was so honored that one of them won second place! If I was a judge, I’d definitely fall in love with this precious little guy ❤
This beautiful girl and her family were an absolute joy to photograph! Miss Morgan barely made a peep during her newborn session and her gorgeous features were complemented by the colors her mama chose to incorporate (feminine, soft colors like peach, pink, and cream). Everyone was so sweet, especially Morgan’s older brother, who was very excited to have a little sister. He kept me laughing with his silly personality and contagious smile!
Here are some of my favorites from our time together!
