Katja is a fellow German friend of mine, who I already had the pleasure of doing maternity pictures during her first pregnancy for – naturally, I was excited to do it all over again this time around and big sister Lara was so much fun to have as part of the session. She seriously adored her mommy’s baby belly! We did a combination of indoor and outdoor shots at their home and I loved their idea of the “feet and shoes” picture!
This was the third time I got to work with this beautiful family and I have to say, I just LOVE photographing them – those three boys are not only extremely handsome, they are also some of the best-behaved kids I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. So sweet and funny and easy to engage. A photographer’s dream!
I loved everything about this shoot. Baby Gray was nice and sleepy, and his parents had followed all of my tips and requests. Because of this we were very efficient and able to capture even the more challenging shots like Gray sleeping on the football held by daddy, something I had never done before.
During the session I got to meet Gray’s grandpa, who is a photo enthusiast as well and we chatted away about exposure times, lenses and all kinds of other photo geeky things, which made me a happy camper!
This was a very special session as Amber is no other than the owner of Enchanted Shimmer Designs (formerly Sleepy Shimmer) and simply a wonderful person all around. She even brought me a present to our session – one of her gorgeous newborn girl accessories – I was over the moon. I had a lot of fun with this sweet family and hope to get to photograph them again this Fall. Thanks for coming all the way up to Marietta, Robinson Family!
I cannot believe it’s been two months since I last blogged a session! Well, I have work to do! Let’s start with Miller, sweet Miller, whose mommy was so awesome and such a trooper for this almost impromptu outdoor session in the middle of the worst Atlanta summer heat. I got eaten up by mosquitoes but Miller’s mom told me he was just fine, and I just adore the images we captured at Leita Thompson Memorial Park. Here a few favorites:
Outdoor newborn sessions are definitely new terrain for me but I absolutely LOVE it. There’s just something about a brandnew baby out in the midst of nature – it’s a very calming and zen experience, I think. Definitely something I’d like to do more, weather-permitting of course. Hope to see you again soon, Miller! xo
