So as I slowly catch up my blog from weeks of neglect, I wanted to feature a gorgeous newborn, Miss Sydney! I had the pleasure of working with Sydney and her family shortly before Christmas and she was a trooper and already adores mommy and daddy.
I have been very bad about updating the blog lately, and after I had done so well this fall – no good! My brother-in-law and his wife live in Northern Virginia, so I didn’t think I was going to be able to do newborn photos for their new little guy, but then life lined up for us and I ended up in the DC area for a seminar when newborn Sam was only 6 days old! A few images from his newborn mini session:
I do have to say that 11-month-old Mr. C and his adorable family were my first official “out of town” clients! C’s Aunt had one a gift certificate at a silent auction I donated to and then gifted the gift to her brother (C’s dad) – pretty awesome Aunt, if you ask me (especially since she came along for the session and helped get some of these adorable smiles!)
It was a cold one – we had rescheduled from a 35-degree day with 20mph winds to a balmy 45-degree day with 15 mph winds. C braved it, though, and smiled through it all! He was so cooperative – maybe because he realized that the faster he smiled, the faster he could get back in the car with the heat on!
When I was pregnant with my second child, I was SURE I was going to have a boy. Until I worked with 28 4-year-old boys at a gymnastics summer camp…then I was thinking I would be okay with another girl! I did get a second girl, but I do feel like there is something that I am missing out on by not having a little boy around, and these three boys showed me that! They had a genuine love for each other and their parents and it was a joy to watch. I am not, however, saying that they didn’t give me a workout! I was a sweaty mess at the end of this one, but this session’s a smile one – I smiled the whole time at the session, and I’m smiling even more at the faces I see in the results.
