Meet baby Penny.
We think we'll keep her.
Notice the Green hand crocheted outfit? Her great grandfather was brought home from the hospital in it! Rich nostalgia.
A few milestones before she came on the scene can be viewed
We love celebrating the big and small things in life.
6 year wedding anniversary
Little Evan is 18 months &
Baby Claire has just joined the family
Much to be thankful for and a perfect season of life for a photo shoot at home!
If you were ever curious about what my favorite sessions are to photograph...it's an in-home session every time. Every time. Love them.
If you haven't heard the news, The Bracken family we all know and love has added a little punkin to their mix. Just in case you missed the first session, click this link to have yourself a little peek. He's precious! So expressive and growing like a weed with each passing day. Love him. Love them.
This field (while filled with allergy laden mustard seed) is just breathtaking. That said, this gorgeous family IN the field? Hello. Aren't they beautiful?
At the shoot he shows me a picture that was just published in a magazine of their wedding image. They had a carnival theme and they were lounging on a sofa being held up by an elephant......AFTER he showed me that, he made a comment in passing about letting me do my thing creatively. Okay. No fair. A mini session in a field with only a little Ikea chair won't scratch the surface when we're competing with an elephant. haha! I still think the pictures are super, super sweet. There are no props or large animals great enough to replace a real connection between a family welcoming a new addition. Welcome to this crazy world and your crazy awesome new family, baby Aislinn.
Hey, it's part of life. Babies just aren't happy all the time. Now, from a mommy's perspective, potentially....I would imagine....I would be a little freaked out if it were finally family picture day and my baby were upset....just as a hypothetical scenario.
HOWEVER, because my passion is photographing fleeting moments in life and relationships, fussy babies totally fit the bill. See, it's not about the baby crying, it's about what the family does to console him. It's precious and makes me melt in a little puddle.
