A reoccurring theme on my blog is that I love, love, love photographing children and families, with newborns being one of my favorite subjects. They are so tiny, but I also love being able to capture a new family enjoying time with together, as usually one parent is behind the camera! At the end of last year, I had the chance to photograph Annabel when she was four weeks old. Isn’t she lovely?
Back in November my husband and I visited some good friends of ours who live in Kentucky. We don’t get to see them that much, especially now that they have two little ones. They asked if I would consider doing a family portrait session while I was there and of course I jumped at the chance! I love family portrait sessions, and this one was made even sweeter knowing it was for friends. One of the main reasons I love doing family sessions is because I usually try to document the “kids being kids” and the “family being a family.” I don’t have the kids pose (usually)–I just try to follow them around while they are playing and doing what they love. Also, since usually one parent is behind the camera, and hence so rare to have a chance for both parents to be in the images, I usually have my families do something they love to do together–in this case it was playing outside!
I love this next series of images…she was laughing one of her toys which apparently she thought was hilarious! Toddlers just crack me up.
Back in the fall I photographed Patrick’s senior portraits (I am a little behind on blogging!). It was an extra-special senior session because he is one of my cousins! Here are some of my favorite images from the session:
