Baby Z. was due today but made her grand entrance 5 weeks ago. This sleepy girl still is having some problems with her day and night schedule (which was good for me, not so great for mom and dad). It was nice to get to meet her after having the opportunity to do this family's maternity session several weeks ago. Hopefully she will get on the right schedule soon.
Well it is super cold in the morning. But that didn't stop us from having another lovely photo shoot - those cold mornings are sometimes the bluest. This couple was a lot of fun to work with and the laughter and love that was evident made it a joy. I am looking forward to working with them again when baby girl A. comes along.
As I am sure that I have mentioned before, I love doing lifestyle photo shoots. When the C. family contacted me and asked if we could do a lifestyle in downtown Mons I was super excited because it gave me a chance to wander around the city that I love and to capture candid shots with this lovely family. Hopefully their sweet (anti-sock) girl will enjoy looking back at these pictures of the beginning of her life in Europe.
This snugly little girl was a pleasure to photograph. We got off to a little bit of a rough start but she was soon asleep and willing to have her picture taken. Her curls were adorable and she was perfect. So thankful for the chance to work with another sweet baby.
This weather is continually getting colder, but that doesn't mean that we can't have fun indoors. On Saturday I had the chance to do a cake smash for L. It was fun working with this family again, as I had seen him for his 6 month pictures. L. was very excited about seeing the cake at first, but then he needed a little help from dad to get to the chocolate, which tasted better than the frosting. I'm sure that he will grow to like this tasty treat in the future.
This last weekend I had the joy of doing a photo shoot with these two siblings. I worked with both of them when I first started my portrait photography journey but not both of them together since then, so this was a fun treat. I loved watching them interact as siblings and friends. It was a nice afternoon and I'm grateful I had the chance to take pictures of them once again.
I photographed this lovely family on Sunday. The weather thankfully held and we were able to play in the leaves and run around. It was an enjoyable way to spend the afternoon and I am so impressed with this mom of two boys. It was a pleasure to get to meet them, even with the language barrier.
Baby A. was another of the babies that I was excited to meet after doing mom and dad's maternity session. She is such an adorable baby and for sure had her daddy's eyes. It was a pleasure working with them again and I hope that little A. continues to adapt to being in the outside world. My best to this lovely family.
This handsome little boy is 11 days old. He obviously loved being snuggled up and cuddled, and really who can blame him? He was sleepy for some of the shoot, but was a great model even when he was awake. His big sister was even willing to get into a few shots. It was fun to work with this family again after doing their maternity pictures. Welcome to the world Baby B.
November is here and with it came beautiful sunshine. It was a perfect day for a photo shoot and the kids and parents were super cute in their fall outfits (did I ever mention I love fall boots?). We had fun with the leaves and wandering around the park. Happy November to everyone!
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
