A New Adventure – Commercial Session

Ms. K needed some headshot for her new real estate business cards. This was quick 20 minute session with a few clothing changes. Even though this was much easier than the typical toddler, I still made goofy faces and made funny comments the get some laughs. I even joked about getting my little purple pig out. Needless to say, it was not needed!

Party of Two – Birthday Session

These brothers share the month of April as their birthday month. Little “L” will be turning one and big brother “B” will be turning six soon. We decided to have cake available for both boys (because every one should have cake)! In the beginning, little “L” wasn’t quite feeling it. So we gave him a break and got some individuals of his big brother. Then we brought “L” back for a few of them together and then gave them both a little break. They did great.

“L” wasn’t too sure about the whole “cake” thing. His interest came and went. But even though he was back and forth, I was able to still capture some great moments. My favorite part was when he started moving closer to me. He just sat and gave me some of the most adorable smiles and smirks. See that last? Oh, he melted my heart. I wonder what he was thinking.

He’ll Be Here Soon – Pregnancy Session

This was my first pregnancy session for 2016. I was a little nervous. But this couple was so perfect and open with ideas and for suggestions from me. They are expecting their first child (a boy) next month. We brought out the gowns, the fan and had fun. They also brought in some extra little props to make the session even better.

I had a tough time choosing which images to use for this sneak peek. We had a variety of poses and I was full of “ooh’s” and “ah’s” while editing and looking over them to pick out my favorites. But as always, they are ALL always y favorites. So I chose these for now. (wink wink)
