Even though I’m not really ‘doing photo sessions’ anymore, sometimes a past client does the right amount of arm-twisting (like having an adorable 2nd baby) that it convinces you to go on out and try shooting again for a change. Baby Audrey was just a precious 3 days old when I got to her and was pure baby bliss to photograph. I can’t believe it was only 2 years ago that I was doing this same thing with big sister Charlotte!! This family was one of the first clients I had when I began my business and to this day I’m forever grateful that they trusted me behind the lens and allowed me to capture some beautiful memories their family. I have so many more images to share with you guys — hang on tight the rest will be on the way real soon!! xo.
I only wish all of my clients could be as super organized, adventurous, and fun loving as the B. family. When mom Gina contacted me after winning my auction offering for the Playmates in Heaven foundation annual charity golf tournament, she had her session all figured out already.Â From wardrobe, to styling, to props she knew what she wanted and she arrived with two laundry baskets full of stuff for us to play with!
We chose a sunrise shoot. We knew the light would be perfect. We knew Kate would be happy as a clam. And we knew that we’d have the opportunity for some gorgeous images. But I didn’t know I’d fall in love with so many of them.
I don’t usually post this many photos from a session, but this time I just couldn’t resist…enjoy!
Even though I promised myself no more photo sessions until after our little one arrives I could not resist squeezing in one more session this weekend with one of my favorite families.Â You may remember baby Danny or D. as I like to call him from throughout this year. He’s appeared on the blog as a newborn, at 3 mos., 6 mos. and now ONE YEAR! I really can not believe how quickly this year has flown by and how much little D. has changed in that time span. Check out how grown up he is looking these days, and oh those curls! I love love love the curls.
We had the absolute perfect weather for a birthday celebration filled with food, family, friends, gifts, and the infamous cake smash. Danny taught us all that no matter how many gifts you get with bells and whistles and music and lights the one year old will always prefer to play with the gift wrap and tissue paper instead. And, even with a bib cake is much better worn on your face, hands, and hair, and clothes than in your mouth.
Much love to Danny’s entire family. Enjoy this little sneak peek from the party.Â D. is certainly growing into one charming, bright, happy little guy and I can’t wait to see what another year brings for your family!
*sings* “Oh the weather outside is frightful…”
Here in Virginia it’s a frightful 97 degrees and definitely not feeling like the holiday season quite yet, but that doesn’t mean it’s not too early to get into the holiday spirit!
I am so excited to be in the midst of scheduling my 2010 holiday mini sessions. These sessions will be taking place on October 30th in the historic town of Waterford, VA and will be my official return to shooting after maternity leave. I have a VERY limited number of spots available so contact me soon about booking because these are bound to fill up quick!
As part of these session you’ll recieve 25 custom designed holiday cards on either a textured finishÂ linen paper or pearl finish metalic paper.Â Â Here’s a peek at the seven card designs you’ll have to choose from.Â (All designs are for flat 5×7 cards except for #4 which is a flat 5×5 square card).
If you’re a past client who is interested in purchasingÂ one of theseÂ cardsÂ using an image fromÂ a previousÂ Be Young Photography session contact me for more information.
