This Season: T's first year

Thursday, May 25, 2017
A special little guy just had his first birthday! Baby T is ready to cruise the streets and and enjoy this next chapter ahead: Adventures in Toddlerhood. I loved photographing this family for a This Season session. We spent a great morning together enjoying his special Radio Flyer tricycle, a breakfast picnic, and walk through their neighborhood park, which just so happens to be Forest Park. Can't beat that! 
What I love about a session like this is getting really personal with a family. They really let their guard down and engaged with each other, laughing, munching, and playing. I got up close and in their face, but they were perfectly in tune with spending time together, and I love the special, relaxed glimpses we get into their family life.

Red Thread Session

I had the pleasure of photographing a Red Thread Session last weekend, which honors adoptive families.  I was so excited to meet Baby N! N's mom had been one of my son's preschool teachers as we were preparing for our own adoption over the last few years, but little did I know she was doing the same.

We spent part of the morning together, dodging rain drops and enjoying a little outdoor oasis on the property of gracious friends.
It was so precious that each time N's dad gently stroked his cheek, he just lit up with these darling, toothless grins. 

Newborn E

I had the honor of photographing Baby E just a few days after she was two weeks old.  I love seeing the connection with newborns to their parents. She loved the cuddles and snuggles with both of her parents! It was so beautiful to see the expressions on their faces as they held her close and enjoyed her newness.
