I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family a lot – at least 8 times, I believe. I’ve gotten to photograph quite a few milestone/important times in their lives (check out Cooper’s newborn session here.) Stacey asked me to do a lifestyle session – I don’t do these often, so of course, I was a little bit nervous, but I’m actually really proud of these and very happy with how they turned out, maybe, just maybe, I’ll start offering these sessions. It was very laid back and easy and fun.
I really enjoyed being able to come into their home…Colton was so excited to show me his toys and his big boy bed he just got, and ran around like a crazy man, while Cooper was just as content as can be the entire time. I love these sweet intimate shots, unposed and light and airy. I converted over to studio light a year ago and I hardly ever get to shoot natural light anymore – I need to make a point to, because there’s nothing like it!
Of course posed newborns are my favorites, but there is something special about being able to capture the real life – it really tells a story and documents life a little more accurately I think.
“The hand of a bride becomes the hand of a mother. Ever so gently she cares for her precious child. Bathing, dressing, feeding, comforting—there is no hand like mother’s. Nor does its tender care diminish through the years.”
