The top left photo is my super handsome husband ๐Ÿ™‚ The one directly below it is a photo of me, and he’s shoveling snow left behind from Nemo in the background! He’s such a good guy! The bottom left photo is a photo of him and my sister playing frisbee! Top right is my husband throwing the frisbee, and the bottom right is the two of us ๐Ÿ™‚ We hardly ever get photos of us together!!

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing the cutest little girl with her mom and dad! We were fortunate enough to be able to do the session in the comfort of their own home — which isย absolutely gorgeous, by the way! I’ll admit, that Addison didn’t quite seem too fond of the idea of having a stranger taking photos of her, but we made it through!

After this session, I can say with absolute certainty that the little ones will always dictate the session, and that is totally okay. It’s also super important to give the family space and allow mom and dad to have control of making their little one happy! If it wasn’t for Justin and Krissie, there’s no way this session would have turned out as well as it did. They were so patient and obviously knew what their girl wanted and needed! They helped keep her laughing and moving from one activity to the next. Take a look at the memories I was able to capture of this precious family!!

She had the most adorable room! I swear, this family was straight out of a fabulous magazine.

The bubbles were an EXCELLENT idea! You go, mom and dad! ๐Ÿ™‚

Love the effect of natural light! This little lady was just too cute!ย 2013-01-23_0004 2013-01-23_0005

This was after I had let her use my camera to take a photo of mom and dad. She was a little happier, but just wanted to see the photo! ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyone who knows me, knows that I can’t pass up a photo of food! Krissie gave me a cookie for the drive home, but you best believe that it was gone before I even got to the end of the road! It was delicious!!

They were reading the cutest book – Thank You God for Daddy. How precious is that??!2013-01-23_0009 2013-01-23_0010 2013-01-23_0011 2013-01-23_0012 2013-01-23_0013

At this point I was “auntie!” She kept saying “come on, auntie!”2013-01-23_0014 2013-01-23_0015

This photo would not have been possible if it wasn’t for Justin’s quick thinking! He was lifting her up in the air (which she giggled like crazy at) and then swung her around real quick and they all leaned in for a photo while she was super happy!! Again — trust the parents!!

Progress;; The end!

This is the final post in my mini-series of progress. It’s amazing to me to see how much I’ve grown over the past year. I hope that these posts are an inspiration to you, to show you that anything is possible with determination and hard work. I know I still have a long ways to go, but I’m very proud of myself for what I’ve accomplished!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I haven’t done a lot of family sessions, but the ones I have had have been a blast ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you to all of my wonderful clients for helping me grow so much as a photographer!

Last weekend, I was able to do some family photos of my oldest brother, and my adorable niece and nephew at the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse. It was such a good day, and so much fun to not only spend some time with my family, but also get the chance to finally take some photos of the kiddos with my big brother! Between the ย tears from multiple diggers taken by Zachie, and the bribes of ice cream to get Jasmine ย to doย just a few more photos (which doesn’t make sense, because the kids normally LOVE to have their photos taken when I have my camera out), we were able to capture some really amazing shots! Take a peek :]

 

 

This is his scary face :]

So cute!

 

“Auntie, take a picture of this puddle with our feet!”

 

 

Oh to be a kid again!

 

I can’t wait for Jack and the kids to see their photos! I had a blast working on them :]
