I have to say, to date, this was my favorite photo shoot yet! I had the privilege of capturing little Ellie turning 1! She is simply adorable and so is her big brother! Can I just mention also, how fantastic her mom is? She put in so much effort to make Ellie’s one year photos very special and different from anyone I’ve ever seen. I would have to say in my experience, 60% of a good photo is the equipment you use and a good eye for capturing the moment, but the other 40% is all the work that goes into behind the scenes. I can only do so much when it comes to props and backdrops, especially since I don’t have my own photo studio. So it helps TREMENDOUSLY, when the parents help out. I am great at capturing other peoples visions, but I unfortunately can’t afford to buy all the stuff needed to create every vision. (I really wish I could) So for all my future clients, take notes from Ellie’s mom! If you want your photos to turn out like these, then invest in a few props to make it special for you little one! You won’t be disappointed! See for yourself!
Hey Jude, don’t make it bad.
Take a sad song and make it better.
Remember to let her into your heart,
Then you can start to make it better.
Are you singing along yet? This will forever be what pops into my head whenever I see baby Jude and believe me, I will see him a lot! He is my newest neighbor and son to one of my best friends. He is perfect in every single way, and although his mom has never been a big fan of The Beatles, she may have to be soon.
I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Jude in the hospital the day after he was born, let me tell you all, he was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! In every single way… from his perfectly circular head to his perfect skin tone! All the girls were swooning over this little one and he was only a day old! Well, it’s easy to see and you will see for yourself, this little man is going to be a heart breaker! (not if his mom has anything to do with it of course!) This is a post I could definitely ramble on and on about because this entire family means the world to me. I will spare you all the rambling and get you to the good stuff. I just have to say, Katie, Dom, Jude, & Lucy, I love you all very much and couldn’t be more happy for you! Baby Jude, you have no idea what you mean to this family and to me. XO!
I have been photographing newborns for a while now, some have just turned one and others are reaching their 6 month mark. I have to say, it is one of the best parts of my job, watching them grow into actual people. Henry, holds a special place in my heart. I have been a part of his life ever since his mama’s baby shower! I realized I never posted a blog of his newborn pictures, so I will throw one or two in the mix so you can see how big he’s grown! He seriously is the happiest baby and his smile is contagious! Happy 6 months baby Henry! Stop growing up so fast!
