Each year I get to see so many returning faces that I just LOVE seeing but what made this session so special to me was that I got to see these guys 3 times this year! Aiden was born August 8, 2019. I captured his newborn session at their home where my goodness he was just the sweetest and his big brother was adorable with so much energy! His personalty was so fun to photograph! I saw them again for Aiden’s 6 month session back at their home where he was JUST learning to sit up.
This session was their one year milestone session with “baby’ Aiden! We met at the beach this time and it was so much fun to see how much the kids grew in the last 6 months! Aiden is starting to stand on his own and take steps. He was not so sure about the feel of the water but he did like to play a bit in the sand. His smile is so contagious and I just love all of this little features! Big Brother Owen always succeeds in making me laugh. These boys are just so much fun and I loved getting to spend time with them! Mom and Dad, you did it! A year with two! That deserves a celebration!
Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your first year with Aiden. I am so thankful for you all and I just love watching them grow! Here are some of my favorite photos from our session together! Happy 1st Birthday Aiden!! xoxoxo
Can I just tell you that when I saw Katelyn get out of the car, I was so excited to meet her and when I saw her beautiful dress, I said Girl! We match!! I was wearing a light pink shirt with stripes so I felt like we all matched for our session together so if we got separated, someone could have helped point us in the direction of the other one wearing pink stripes! haha.
Katelyn and Ben were so much fun! I just loved how much he made her laugh! They have the sweetest personalities and it’s evident how in love they are. Katelyn’s daughter Alexa joined us for this session and it was so amazing to see how much Ben loves her too! The way he looks at both of his girls made makes my heart smile! What an amazing story they have and an amazing little girl who will be in their wedding standing next to them as they exchange their vows.
Katelyn, Ben and Alexa, Thanks for hanging out with me on the most perfect August night! The location you picked is one of my favorites and I am so thankful for you guys getting in the quick sandy waters for an epic family photo! I hope you love your photos and I can not wait to see you for your wedding day!
June has been a month of baby talk! A few weeks ago I shot THIS beautiful Maternity Session. Then, I received an email from a friend of mine that they were having a birthday parade for their daughter, Ellie who was turning 2 along with a small gathering for a gender reveal at their home. I planned to go to both the birthday parade and gender reveal with the kids and I asked her if she wanted me to bring my camera along! She responded how much of a gift that would be, so the kiddos, my camera and I went to celebrate!
It was really sweet to see the little birthday girl and her mama’s baby bump! At 11 weeks, its showing slightly and its adorable! Close friends gathered around after the parade as mom and dad popped a balloon revealing the gender of their new baby coming soon!
Congratulations Duffy family! I am so excited for you! Ellie is going to be the BEST big sister!! <3
It feels like the year of baby girls! I have had several newborn sessions this year and all of them were little ladies who just stole my heart! This beautiful family invited me to their home for a lifestyle newborn session and I am so thankful! Big Brother Ben was so cute snuggling on his new sister Emily for some parts of our session. He even busted out some adorable dance moves! Emily is absolutely the sweetest and at 7 days new, she was awake for most of our time together. These photos are timeless. It’s just so crazy to see how much babies and kids grow each day. Everyday is new and having these moments captured in your home is a wonderful way to keep these precious memories forever.
Kristy, Jeff, Benjamin and Emily, Thanks so much for spending the day with me! I had so much fun getting to know you guys and meeting baby Emily. She is absolutely precious! She and Ben are so lucky to have parents like you! I hope you love your photos as much as I do! It’s always so hard for me to choose my favorites so here is a sneak peek of a bunch of the photos I love! Can’t wait to see you guys again soon! xo.
LIFESTYLE NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY
The true beauty of lifestyle newborn photography is that there are really no boundaries of what the sessions should be like. There are no rules, set poses or perfect timing. Each family is different and so the end result is different as well. It’s unique as it should be because it portrays each family’s story in a real and honest way. Don’t ever feel like you are too late to capture your baby’s photos. There are no set rules. Babies are beautiful in every phase and the moments are too precious and fleeting to be missed.
I have had a little break from blogging over the last couple weeks which I have to say, feels like its been an entire year! Between family sessions and weddings, I have been non stop with LOTS and LOTS of late nights editing. I have so many blog drafts almost ready to be published and I do not want to keep those blogs in cue anymore! I am so excited to finally feature this amazing family! I have been taking their photos since I started my business in 2012! It went from just a couple, to maternity, to family, to extended family and I am forever grateful for them all! We had their session in Wakefield, MA again this year and this time the littlest lady, Lilly is here! It is so fun to get to see these families grow and I love getting to be apart of savoring these moments for them!
Here is the start of my 2019 family sessions!! Get ready for more awesomeness! 🙂
