Look who’s one! And she’s walking around like a little star :) These guys were my 2nd to last minishoot a couple of weeks ago, and we had such fun by the pink tulips, playing peek-a-boo behind the birch trees… she was wonderful.
So fun to meet you guys!
One quickie 4 wk old photoshoot with my extraordinary baby niece? There’s nothing more perfect. We did it last weekend, and the shoot was quick, but the girl was a dream. I am so in love with this little lady. She’s incredible. And she’s getting rolls! Eeek!
It’s so fun for me to know people first as friends and then get a chance to take their pictures – I love that. I’m lucky enough to have met many many people as clients first and then over years and years of watching their babies grow they become friends. But this one is the opposite… friends first, and now yay, getting a chance to photograph them! I’m feeling gushy today, sorry. Maybe it’s editing pictures of one of my daughter’s best friends, and one of my favorite neighbors… When I get a chance to take pictures of kids I’ve hung around with, played with… it’s just such an amazing feeling. I feel like I know the smiles so well, I just adore being able to capture them.
Thanks guys, I’m so glad you did a mini!
For this minishoot shoot we had a lot of fun with this gorgeous group of pink tulips over in the corner of the Public Garden. In color the photos are gorgeous, but there’s also something really incredible about them in b&w – the light for this 1:30pm shoot was bright and intense, and it caught the light colored tulips just right – letting them reflect light up into sweet A and her mama’s faces.
I really just adore mommy/daughter pictures. Happy (early) Mother’s Day!
So much happened in these 20 minutes, I almost don’t know where to begin. So I guess I’ll start at the end. We thought we were just about done when mama brought out the bubble machine thing, which she thought was broken… but big brother B and big sister P managed to get it working again (with just a little 8 yr old and 6 yr old elbow grease and sheer force of will, I think). So THEN they proceeded to have the best time with the bubble gun thing – and we got some of my favorite pictures from their shoot in those last five minutes.
Oh, but I also can’t forget to mention how much I love the picture of the pile the whole family with a minor meltdown happening in the middle of it all. I just love those kind of real pictures :)
By this point in the day it was 10:30am and the sun was continuing to feel fantastic, the little guys were showing off their skills… and these 20 minute photoshoots were flying.
This guy just turned 1! I can’t believe how quickly the year flew by – and I loved punctuating the birthday week with a photoshoot. Look at those walking skills :) I think one of my very faves is the daddy rolling onto his back and playing with G down on the ground – it was so spontaneous and sweet. That and the 2nd walking picture towards the end of the shoot, when G is walking so happily towards mama and daddy’s looking on proudly in the background.
It was such a treat to see you guys with a camera in my hand – thanks for meeting me!
Now these kind of shoots are SOOooo fun for me – when I haven’t seen a little one since they were teenie, and I get to see how big and amazing they’ve gotten. I haven’t seen little L since she was mere days old. And now she’s 20 months old, and just t0-die-for cute.
Am I right?
So wonderful to see you guys again! I can’t believe how quickly the time flew :)
I haven’t seen big brother B since he was three months old, and now he’s 21 months old and a pair of nearly 3 month old brothers have joined his family. I loved spending some time with these gorgeous boys and their mama. The ones that show how little all three of them are are my favorites. All those chubby legs… The mama tickling B one, while the twins peek over at me. All those legs in a row with mama playing. And the not-posed one of mama holding the twins – I love what a sweet quiet moment that is. Oh, and aunt Amy coming in for the last minute tweaks on B’s shirt. Perfecto.
Thanks for making the drive, guys!
You guys know me, I always post too many favorites when I take pictures of twins. I just love them – and these two girls were just too much fun. They were both born tiny, back in mid-November, but came home from the hospital just around the new year. Now they’re three months old and getting bigger every day. And they have two times the cute grins, two times the cuddles with mama and Mimi (namesake!); it’s just the best. And my very favorite? The one where the eyelines (the invisible lines that are created by the direction the people in the picture are looking) are crossing – Mimi looking across and Mama looking across, and the babies meeting the eyes of the person who’s not holding them. I mean, come ON – how fantastic is that? Oh, and then we have the grins – don’t even get me started. The one on one shots are wonderfully sweet too – Mimi holding her namesake and Mama loving on little E. I adored meeting you girls, thank you so much for inviting me.
Wow, that year went quickly! This sweet boy did my Baby’s First Year package, so I’m lucky enough to have seen him a bunch of times this year. Now I still can’t believe those dimples, and how much fun he has being a big one year old boy. The ones with his mama might be my favorites, though :)
When your best friend from growing up has her first baby, you just book a flight. And then you have such a great time visiting with her family and other friends that you totally forget to edit the pictures, and the holidays happen, and then it’s January, and then you’re not eating enough because you’re on a “cleanse”, so your editing seems to take forever… wait, but I digress.
I can’t even explain how much my heart burst when I met this little 4 week old person. I can’t wait to go back for pictures when she’s 6 months old. I adored every minute seeing you guys. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. I included a bunch of my wonderful host’s children at the end of the blog post too – so there’s loads of bloggy goodness if you click around below.
and happy 2013!
Met this little four week old cutie pie last weekend, and OK, you had me at Infant Santa suit. Come on now. Not to mention those long legs and arms and FEET! Love those sweet long feet. Almost as long as daddy’s finger. The one of him making his surprised face is cracking me up, too. And the last one, where Daddy is stroking M’s forehead with this new trick that soothes him to sleep? Perfection.
We spent this whole photoshoot indoors because it was warm and cozy in there – and what’s better than rolling around on the bed, on the couch, just playing.
I have one cuddly picture in here that tells a little story from the editing side of things – and it’s the one of mama on the bed with her two kids squashing up in close with her. This one is not the crispest photo, and the old Jess – the Jess before she had her own kids, the more technically precise Jess – wouldn’t have approved of it. But the love is just bursting out of this picture – two babies crawling up tight to their mama – I had to keep it. Because who cares about a little motion blur when the moment just makes your heart melt?
