This is the second time I have had the opportunity to photograph this lovely couple during their pregnancy, the first being at 25 weeks. This soon to be Mama absolutely glowed and was so comfortable in front of the camera that it made my job super easy. I am looking forward to working with this couple again as they welcome their little one into the world.
This sweet little girl slept the entire shoot and even allowed me to move her around so I could switch out backdrops and wraps. It was lovely. I hope that she continues to have a mellow personality but quickly learns to stand up to her older brother. Best wishes to this family and I hope the transitions go smoothly for you all.
It has been a few months since my last cake smash and I always enjoy these. The kids are so skeptical of the cake and what exactly is in front of them. Then they try it and you can see the debate in their eyes - "what is this and do I like it?." This cute little boy wasn't so sure of the cake but he did enjoy licking his finger afterwards. Plus I got some beautiful shots of him and his Mama. Happy Birthday little M!
Well the rain has come but thankfully by evening all we have is a wet ground, which means I can still do shoots. I had the opportunity to photograph this loving family. The kids were able to run around and be wild animals in the grass and thankfully the incentive of chocolate at the end helped keep them awake and interested just a little longer.
I had the pleasure to meet little baby P. this last weekend. It was fun to work with him, especially after taking maternity pictures (I love these before and after shoots). Little P. slept pretty much the whole time and even big brother was willing to hold him for a little while. Hopefully the transition into brotherhood and being a four person family goes smoothly and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be there to document this time.
This family was all about boy things. And coming from a world of princesses it was a welcome relief to discuss Spiderman, Ninja Turtles, and so many other action figures. These boys loved running through the grass and were even willing to stand still for a few minutes so I could get a shot here and there. I am so glad that we once again had nice weather so we could have fun with the lighting and that we had a breeze to help cool us off a bit.
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
