On our crazy, cross-country trip this summer, we were privileged enough to be able to visit some good friends of ours. This family holds a dear place in my photography heart (and real heart) as their oldest was one of my first ever photo shoots when she was 4 months old. I also took their second daughter’s newborn pictures as well as various family photos and stages of babyhood for both along the way. They’ve grown up behind my lens so I was excited to find out that my journey through Missouri coincided with the birth of their first boy!
He’s a sweetie and his older sisters just love him! Be forewarned: this blog is picture heavy! I spent all morning and bits and pieces of the afternoon chasing the perfect photos.
We started in the nursery since mom and dad (and grandma!) worked so hard to make such an amazing WWI themed room!
What a treat to be able to say, “hey grandma, can you stay just like that but come over here by the window” and poof! Perfect picture with hardly any editing.
At one point, when chaos was ensuing inside (my kids were there too), I stole the baby and took him outside for these shots.
And, of course, many of the sweetest shost cannot be planned. Baby fell asleep on mom’s shoulder and even smiled a bit for me. 🙂 These photos and the one of grandma are why I love lifestyle photography. Invite me into your home, let me hang out a few hours with my camera and I’ll help you remember that precious tiny baby who is grown before you know it. Click here to find out how to book a session.
And a favorite that I already shared on my facebook page (come over and become a fan!):
What’s a baby brother newborn photo shoot without pics of the big sisters?!
