We were thrilled to first meet the Beard family when they were expecting their first little miracle, baby J. We first started with their maternity session (some of you might recall momma in hubby’s firefighter turnouts!) and then documented J’s first year. We were thrilled when they announced that they were expecting baby #2, who we are debuting here. We love photographing and spending time with the Beard’s, who we now feel fortunate to call friends, not just clients. Baby P’s newborn session was no exception to the magic that always seem to happen during their sessions. They always come in with a few ideas that seem to translate into gorgeous! We love their willingness to experiment and go “outside the box” when it comes to their portrait sessions. We should mention that the darling image below of the brothers laying with dad’s gear happened spontaneously–when we mentioned to big brother that it was almost his turn, he went over and leaned down over the baby, thumb in mouth and all! Love him! Meet the Beard family, again!
Photographing the Granner family was several years in the making, so we were thrilled when it finally came to fruition! Jami called me a few years ago when she was expecting little Miss K, inquiring about maternity portraits. Unfortunately those didn’t end up happening, as complications forced her to bed rest. Fast forward a couple of years, and I was so excited when we heard from her to bring her kiddos to our Heirlooms & Expressions summer portrait event last year. It’s always interesting to watch the interaction between older kids and little ones, and this was such a treat, as big brother and big sister doted on little K, as she clearly had them wrapped around their little finger! 🙂 Jami then decided to bring the whole gang back for a complete family session, where the loving nature of this family came through even more. It’s definitely a testament to great parents when you see great teenagers. Thanks for sharing them with us! (and of course, little Miss K, too…she’s a show-stealer!).
We are back! Sorry we’ve been offline for a bit, updating some behind the scenes stuff on the blog. So happy to be back here sharing the wonderful people we are privileged to work with. The Cameto family holds a soft spot in our hearts, as we have been through the journey of two maternity sessions, their first baby’s first year and beyond, and now baby sister’s first year is underway. Since we did their first maternity session in the studio, we all decided to go for something different and venture outside. It was gorgeous and as always, the wardrobe was perfect! (way to go Sarah!) This session also doubled as young G’s three-year portraits. As all sessions seem to be with this family, it was simply magical. Fast forward a short bit and we were thrilled to meet the newest Cameto, Miss G! Her newborn session was not too long before Christmas, so it was only appropriate that a few “seasonal” shots were captured, which worked perfectly for their birth announcement/holiday card. It’s hard to believe that very soon we’ll be seeing baby G for her next Bebe session–can’t wait, as I’m sure it will be fantastic! Meet the lovely Cameto family–again:
Happy New Year! We hope this finds you filled with plenty of good cheer, good company, and good food after the holidays. We were fortunate to have all of these things this year (maybe a little too much of the good food…) and look forward to what 2012 has in store. We’re hoping it brings more wonderful people into our lives like the Booth’s, featured here. We’ve combined the Booth maternity and newborn session here, which is fun to see the progression all at one time. Mama K was fun and ready for anything, and J, like any good new father-to-be, was willing to do whatever his beautiful bride wanted. 🙂 Their openness made for beautiful images for sure. Enter Baby B a bit later–what an absolute angel boy! He was super alert and content for such a new baby–we were fortunate to really see his big alert eyes; at this age most babies are either sleeping or crying…:-) J & K were beaming new parents, as well they should be, and we especially loved the image with Baby B nestled in on mom’s chest. Pure, sweet, priceless…
Can’t wait to see them again soon for B’s next session–we can only imagine how fun he’s going to be this time around! Meet the Booth family:
How quickly Miss S’s first year seemed to go by! By her one-year session with us, she had turned into quite the little lady. As usual, mom brought a dizzying assortment of amazing wardrobe options and hair accessories. Miss S often had her own ideas about where the hair accessories should be (hint: it was not usually on her head!). Let me put it this way–S’s personality is even larger than her wardrobe! 🙂 We had so much fun with her, all of her outfits, and of course, mom. I’m sure these latest images will melt your heart as much as she did ours. Thanks to S’s mommy for sharing her first year with us!
We experienced quite a baby boom over the past several months at the studio, and the Fleming family contributed to that trend. We also saw another interesting phenomenon–babies being born so early that momma either missed her maternity session altogether or came very close! Tonya was one of those whose maternity session actually turned into baby Z’s newborn session. She brought him to us when he was just days old, along with big brother, to capture his tiny sweetness. Z was such a good boy and gave us the treat of seeing him both asleep and awake, which sometimes for babies that new doesn’t happen (they just sleep!). We’re looking forward to their next Bebe session to see how much he’s grown. Meet baby Z:
We first met the Beard’s when they were still expecting Baby J (you might recall their maternity images with mama in Tim’s firefighting turnouts–so cute!), and we are happy to call the Beard’s our friends now, too. It has been such a fun journey to document this special little guy’s first year +, but by far the best part has just been getting to know and spend time with them. Tim & Melissa decided to carry the firefighter theme throughout their sessions, so some part of Tim’s gear was a part of every session. I will not lie–we were a little nervous when Tim walked in with his huge axe at the last session, but it turned out to be such a cool part of this image below. We are so thankful for the trust Tim & Melissa have placed in us to create their portrait art, and love the collaborative efforts they put forth for each and every session.
We were thrilled to get to work with the Fore family this summer on 2 separate occasions–for their maternity session and then baby K’s newborn session, which ended up being closer together since he decided to make his entrance over 3 weeks early! Since the sessions were so close together we decided to do a fun post with images from both. The maternity session was a blast and we just loved working with them, and we’re always thrilled when there are awesome tattoos to show! 🙂 Fast forward to sweet baby K…he was seriously one of the cutest newborns ever! I could have just stared at him all day, especially since he didn’t make a peep during his session (another bonus of getting them when they’re brand-new). We’re looking forward to seeing the Fore family back for their 2 other Bebe sessions over K’s first year….stay tuned!
The Beard’s have been visiting us since they were expecting Baby J (you might remember mom in hubby’s firefighting turnouts in her maternity images). When they told us they wanted to do something a little different for their second Bebe session, we were all ears. They mentioned their pea coats and wanting to go to historic Roseville; we were excited! We just loved those shots, but were just as excited about photographing J in dad’s turnouts. We photographed him in his helmet as a newborn and they want to continue the theme throughout each of his first year sessions. Can’t wait to see him standing in the boots next time around! Meet the Beard family (again):
We’ve been photographing the Morris family since big sis was just 6 weeks old. We’ve even had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Heather’s entire immediate family who gathered here from across the country. Heather, Matt & their kids have always had a special place in our hearts, so when we heard the news that Heather was expecting their 3 rd child (1st biological), we were overjoyed! It truly was a miracle! Suffice it to say, this maternity session had extra special significance for everyone involved. Their baby boy has since entered the world and we look forward to meeting the newest Morris very soon. Meet the Morris family:
