There were so many incredible images from this session it was hard to select what to showcase here. The whole session from start to finish was one fun expression after the other. Looking through his images from the shoot, I laughed and laughed and laughed.....umm...out loud. It was quite disruptive to my staff. Such a funny boy! I enjoyed the giggles.
You can see his newborn session here if you'd like.
And what is it again that makes me want to chew on those little baby cheeks? Oooh. Love those chunky little parts. Love em. Love em. Love em.
This lady has her ducks in a row. Literally.
I wish you could witness what I have been so fortunate to watch.
5 children is no easy task. Heck, I freak out sometimes with just 2! These children love each other so much, they play, they climb trees, they dote on their new little brother, they are all drop dead gorgeous and they are...
I love getting to "see" the reality of family life.
The images below are all of my very, very favorites from the session. I LOVE the 2nd image, the one of the mom and dad. Can you just "feel" their love? OOOOH! So inspiring and so amazing. Love the rest for different reasons...each individual child's picture is how I saw them and their spirits.
Getting to watch kids grow up and having the honor of documenting their childhood so they can relive "days past" has got to be the coolest job on the planet.
Nerves are crazy with our first babies, aren't they? One of my very, very, very favorite images in this set is toward the end, it's the image of her anticipating and looking like, "oh dear...what in the world have I gotten myself into"? If I'm being really honest, I thought that very same thing for at least 6 months after my kids were born. I even asked my husband several times the first week they were home, if he thought the hospital would let us bring them back. Funny how those nerves sneak up on us.
Next time you see a new mom, pat her on the back and tell her what a great job she's doing. It's a tough job...but it's the single most rewarding job we could ever have.
This little buddy is certainly growin' like a little weed! Here he is in his mommy's belly...then when he arrived : click to see the baby
here comes the moment of truth...
I hate studio sessions because they're not as fun as being outside.
However....I love studio sessions because of the details and intimacy they are able to portray.
I love the fact that just looking through this session helps me to know how much this little punkin is loved by his rockin' parents. The coolest thing about that? When he grows up, hopefully he will see that, too!
PS... A great big thanks to Jason Davis of Knoxville for helping me out with this session!
Remember them ------------> before ?
Here's their sweet little baby girl! Is she precious? Love that lil' bundle UP!! Ooowee!
What is the most precious thing about bringing a brand new baby home? Watching her parents flip out over her. All of the newness. Completely, totally invaluable.
