Ivana (mommy of baby Vera) is one of my favorite people on earth. She has such a joyful spirit and her household is proof of that. Vera is the newest of three beautiful girls who are also full of life and smiles. Baby Vera even gave me a smile on this, her very first photo shoot! Ivana, I just want to tell you how proud I am of all you do for your family. On top of all the everyday stuff- you take time to love your girls in very personal ways. I know Vera is already a recipient of this special love you show because of how you responded to these pictures. You were so happy that I took a picture of her right ear (your favorite of her ears). You thanked me for taking a picture of her right eyelashes (the longest of her eyelashes). You swooned when you saw her puckered lips (you called them luscious). You notice and celebrate the unique characteristics of all your girls- and that makes you a perfect mommy.
- Baby & Newborn Photography
Brittany & Caleb, it’s been a long road but baby Emma is finally here- and she’s beautiful. Thank you for letting me photograph all the sweet things that make her your baby.
Being a newborn photographer is so much fun. Even though Brittany & Caleb live in beautiful Charelston, a newborn shoot is always better in the comfort of your own home. It’s one of the best settings, for a life style photographer. You can’t get any more “life styled” than a casual shoot in-home photo shoot. This family had another toddler who organicly jumped into a few photographs. I love when that happens because the outcome is very natural. It’s fun to do some posed shots (like the rings on toes) but we were at the mercy of little Emma the whole time. If she wanted to be held, I photographed her being held. If she was content to lie by herself, I photographed her bare bum. :) It’s so simple, but the photography speaks for itself.
My new niece, Willa Gray, has finally arrived! Isn’t she just the sweetest little angel?!
In preparation for her arrival I decided to learn the video function on my camera. I shoot with a Canon 5D Markii and NEVER shoot in video mode . . . because I’m a photographer! So, one morning (before everyone was fully dressed) Sullivan decided to play the piano. It was the sweetest thing and he’s quite good. I grabbed the camera, switched to video mode, and thought to myself, “He is SOOOOO going to appreciate that I captured this tender moment when he has little ones of his own.” The tender moment lasted a short while- and then it was back to his three year old antics!
