This beautiful little girl turned one this month and it is amazing to think that a year has already flown by. She is beyond adored by both her mom and dad and it was fun to watch them try to make her laugh. Her one year shoot also included a beautiful cake smash and lovely light (I love it when we have gorgeous weather).
Thank you for the opportunity to see little E. again and I hope that she continues to bring both of you much joy. I know she will be keeping you both on your toes.
I love trees and the sun and the way that the sun looks coming through those trees. As we drive down the road I am always pointing out patches of light and wishing we could stop along the side of the road to capture those moments. Thankfully I have found a happy spot to play and find sunshine (when it is out). This lovely family joined me for an hour to play in the trees, to wave at horses, and to say "Bonjour" to runners as they came by. I am thankful to my repeat clients and for the trust that they put in me to take their family pictures. Happy birthday to this Little Man on his second birthday and I hope that his love of cars, being thrown in the air, and bouncy castle continues and that you find joy each day.
I had the privilege of spending my morning with this family yesterday. It was a long morning with a little lady who decided she did not want to sleep (and I really do hope that she slept well last night and today). Thankfully even little ones who don't want to sleep can still be photographed and snuggled, and really I think that sometimes those are the best pictures.
Thank you for allowing me to capture these moments and I hope that you all adjust to being a family of 4 (plus 3 fur babies) quickly.
These two brothers were a lot of fun to work with. When their mom contacted me about doing a shoot we discussed doing something a little different since I knew I didn't want them just standing around staring at the camera. We went to the perfect location and just allowed them to play and have fun. We discussed movies, comics, drawing, and Legos. It was fun to watch these two interact and to see how they are more than just brothers but obviously also best friends. I hope that their friendship continues to grow as they get older and that they continue to be the very best of friends.
Happiness is turning 1. Happiness is snuggling, giggling, and glitter. Happiness is sun flare. There were so many beautiful moments at this shoot it was difficult to pick which ones to edit; the girl was adorable and the lighting was just the way that I like it - oh and the interaction between this family was just lovely. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to work with this joyful family once again and that they trusted me to do their daughter's 1 year photos. I love seeing these newborns become more interactive. Happy birthday M. and I hope that you have a blessed year.
I love spending time with families and just capturing the connection and love between them. When there are multiple children it is always fun to see how the parents interact with each differently. This family with two small children meant running and distraction and snuggles. It was enjoyable to get to spend time with them and I am so grateful that they allowed me to be a part of this time. It was lovely working with you again and meeting baby P. I hope that you all get a little rest in the near future.
This Mama definitely has her arms full with these two adorable girls who are turning one in a few weeks.
Little H. adored the camera and was smiles for me most the time while S. was much more reserved and really would rather snuggle. Even though these two look exactly alike it was fun to see their different personalities in the short amount of time that I was with them.
I wish you girls a very happy birthday and that you do with well all the changes ahead of you.
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
