So if you have ever looked at my blog before, you will recognize these folks. I feel like they are part family to me. We work together twice a year, in the spring and the fall, and every time I photograph them, I try to outdo our last photo shoot. As I went through these photos after our photo shoot, my first thought was “nailed it!”.
Let me tell you about our photo shoots. The kids jump out of the car and come and give me a tackle style hug. We do a lot of playing. Some games we’ve been playing for years and they look forward to them (such as the “telephone” game). I always try to come up with new ideas too. Our shoots can last a while, and we plan for this with snacks. We have a silly tradition that we end with before we get to shout “it’s a wrap!!!”. It really is like a family playdate. With a photographer there to capture it all!
These truly are the BEST that we’ve ever done! Everything was just right. I am so grateful for all of our amazing photo shoots. And can’t wait till Spring! I really need to start planning to make sure it’s as good as this 🙂
THANK YOU R FAMILY!!!
I adore taking pictures of this beautyfull child! She is such a little stunning fairy, with a sweet and gentle personality to go with her face. Can you even get enough of those curls?! Her mom told me that her dress was going to be pretty. And she wasn’t lying! She was dressed to perfection in a soft ballet dress and a little fur pillbox hat reminiscent of Jackie O 🙂 She is such a little classic beauty.
She is such an easy child to photograph, I could have kept going and going with making her portraits but had to reign it in. What a fun photo shoot.
Thank you so much again S family. Little Mme Z gets more and more jolie each time that I see her! I love being her photographer!
I have been working with this family since little F was a tiny babe. She is so sweet now with such a spunky little personality and it is evident that she ADORES her mom and dad. We met at Freedom Park on a weekday morning, which was nice because there was little crowd to dodge when photographing them! This really is one of my most favorite locations to take pictures in Charlotte. It was a great shoot and we have so many beautiful portraits. I had to share these 🙂
I had the privilege of being the photographer for both babies in this Charlotte family! When big sis A was born and I got to make her newborn portraits, I fell in love with this family. They are so gentle and kind. She was such a tiny beauty and I was so excited to see her again, now that she has a baby brother! As I have mentioned before on my blog, working with small children on sibling shots can be tricky! Some older siblings want little to do with the new baby, and some can be rough. It takes time and patience to get the perfect shot. Well, this little toddler did not make me work for it AT ALL! She was so interested in her baby brother and so quick to snuggle up on him and give him kisses and hugs. She really made the photo shoot fun! Little E was awesome as well! He looked like he was smiling almost all of the time. He is such an easy going little guy, no wonder why his sister adores him so much!
THANK YOU C family!!! I love you!
If you have been visiting my photography blog for a few years, you will definitely recognize this family! I began making their portraits when their oldest child was a little wee one. And then she became a big sister. And they keep growing up, right before my eyes and camera! It is such a joy to be their photographer. I love how these girls’ personalities have developed through the years. We have many memories together, and they are captured in beautiful pictures!
