A big part of my sessions last year were cake smash sessions or 1st birthday sessions. I absolutely adore this type of shoot, because no matter how long you’ve been doing this, this is the one type of session you seriously have no control over whatsoever, and it’s 100% baby-in-control-mode for me as a photographer. I thought I’d share some of my favorite behind-the-scenes shots from last year and funny enough – most of them are cake smash behind-the-scenes shots. Oh the fun we had. :) To schedule YOUR baby’s 1st birthday or cake smash session, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and come visit us on facebook at www.facebook.com/angierayphotography to see my latest session sneak peeks! xo
I’ve photographed the gorgeous Walker family once before and I was excited to see them all again – the boys have grown so much in just a few short months and we had a lot to chat about during our session. These boys are so handsome, I could take pictures of them all day long. Can’t wait ‘til the next time!
Today we get to visit with a pair of very special brothers, twins Ethan and Elijah. Twins are such a miracle and I absolutely love photographing them. Not only are they super sweet and adorable, they are also a challenge (in a good way). Trying to keep both of them asleep or awake at the same time can be a difficult endeavor! Ethan and Elijah loved to take turns sleeping and waking for me, keeping me on my toes.
I’m a bit behind on blogging and I actually had the pleasure of catching up with these two recently for their 3-months session. I can’t wait to share with you how much they’ve grown.
I photographed Cassie as a newborn and I hope I get to see her again for her 6-months but unfortunately, her family is moving soon so I’m keeping my fingers crossed we can get that session in before the big move. Cassie has a super sweet personality, she loves music and when her daddy makes her laugh.
Some of you might still remember Courtney’s Maternity Session I shot back when I myself was still carrying quite an impressive baby bump in front of me.. well, time flies when you’re having fun so now I am able to introduce handsome little Israel to my readers – isn’t he too cute for words?And SO alert! I was completely blown away by how awake and focused he was throughout his entire session. Luckily though, despite being so awake, he was completely calm and we were able to capture a ton of wonderful images, including a couple of family shots in the very end – such a little pro! Here some favorites:
Thank you guys so much for coming back for his newborn session – I hope I’ll see you and your little guy again sometime! ~Angie
Hard to believe it’s already been 3 months since I photographed sweet little Brooklyn with her three extremely handsome brothers, one of which, Colton, I already had the pleasure of meeting last year, around his first birthday!
Just like last time, we had gl;orious weather down in Woodstock City Park and even went indoors for a couple of portraits afterwards. Miss Brooklyn was such a sweetheart and in a wonderful mood for her session – love it!
I’m secretly keeping my fingers crossed her momma will let me see Miss B. again for her first-birthday pictures! You know where to find me, Holly ;)
I cannot believe how badly I’ve been neglecting my beloved blog! I had planned on keeping it going and updated through my baby break but I admit my heart wasn’t in it in the end and I decided to just wait until after baby Eliot was born before posting.
So here I am, and I’ve got TONS to catch up on. First off, can you say G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S.? Momma-to-be Courtney and husband T.K. came to see me out at Leita Thompson Memorial Garden back in March. We had a lot of fun and I can’t help but wonder what people were thinking that saw us (me, the already very pregnant lady and Courtney, also visibly pregnant) :D
Anyway, here some of my many many favorite shots from this wonderful and fun maternity session:
I bet you can tell I am incredibly excited about baby Israel’s arrival, which is pretty much going to happen any day now! Can’t wait to see you guys again, Courtney and T.K., and meet your little man!
Remember Patty, the glowing, gorgeous mom-to-be I photographed late last fall? Well, here is the little man responsible for all that glow: Meet Oliver. I am in love. ;)
Although not too sleepy, he was so very easy to work with and oh so handsome. I got to try out some of my newest props, like baby bow ties and newborn crown, as well as some of mom’s own props! So much fun!
I had an incredibly hard time choosing my favorite shots for this blog post but I hope it gives you a glimpse into how much I love my job.. ;)
For this session, I met Anna and her husband Michiyuki at Sweetwater Creek State Park down in Douglas County, GA and boy what a gorgeous location this turned out to be! I had never been there before and neither had Anna or her husband but since the two of them live about four hours away from me in South Georgia, we were sort of forced to find us a “half-way point”, which Sweetwater Creek happens to be. After looking at pictures online and reading about the different walking trails available to visitors, we agreed to give it a shot and I am so glad we did.
If you ever happen to find yourself in the middle of Georgia with time on your hands and in halfway decent shoes (flip flops are NOT recommended), go and check out this beautiful park – and make sure to bring mosquito spray, too ;)
Here some of my favorite shots from this wonderful and fun fall session with Anna and Michiyuki:
Thanks for letting me be your photographer for this wonderful and special session – I had so much fun with you! xo
