First birthdays are special. There’s just something about that age that gets me every time. The bridge between baby and toddler that exists for such a short period of time. When Miss. A and I spent some time together late this past spring, she was not quite one, but almost. I love how we captured the baby that was still in her but also caught glimpses of what was to come. She was not quite walking at our session, but I’d be willing to bet that her mamma now chases her and those sparkly blue eyes of hers *everywhere* she goes!
A mother’s love is special. I’ve always known this…everyone does. But it wasn’t until I became a mother myself and held my first child in my arms for the first time that I truly understood what that meant. I began to love in a way that I never had before. I loved that tiny little person so completely, so differently. And I think becoming a mother helped me to love others in my life better too. I loved my husband in a deeper way now that we were officially a family, and I gained an appreciation for all that my own parents had done for me and why.
A mother’s love is special. I love it that we documented that for this beautiful mamma and her two little ones, and it makes me realize how badly I need a photo session of my own!
this session! Be prepared for picture overload, because I really did love this one. It was just one of those nights where everything was right. We had beautiful weather, a beautiful sunset and a beautiful family that shared a very beautiful love. We started our time together in a fun urban spot in Dallas where we captured color, texture and a touch of funk.
Then we headed over to a very special place in Dallas for this young mom and dad. They were married just a stone’s throw from this field and are avid cyclists who can often be found cycling around the lake. It was obvious from the first moment that we arrived that it will inevitably become a special place for little Miss. E as well. She was so at home in the midst of the (often rough!) prairie grass. We got such a kick out of watching her run her hands over the grass and smile. She was definitely in her element and will surely grow to love being in nature as much as her parents!
And this beautiful mamma is also a *very* talented artist. You can see some of her amazing paintings here. I am so flattered that they chose me to capture their family on film. Ds, you are a beautiful family with beautiful love wherever you are!
Or perhaps in the case of this set of brother/sister twins, double the fun!
These were the sweetest babies. I shouldn’t be surprised by that, because their older brother is perhaps the sweetest 5-year-old I’ve ever met. But newborn sessions, under the best of circumstances, require a lot of patience. I had no idea what to expect from my first set of newborn twins, but these two didn’t give me any trouble at all. And I was totally blown away by how much they loved being close to each other. The minute we put them together, they snuggled in and completely relaxed. I’ve always wondered what it would be like to go through life with a twin. For these two little angels, I bet it will be very special indeed.
Wow, this is one loved and treasured baby girl! Her mom and dad are so in love with every single inch of her, and I must say that their love is quite contagious. I came home from my session in their home yesterday and loved on my own two little treasures all afternoon. Ks, you are a beautiful family with beautiful love — and quite photogenic I might add!
Sweet Baby R was such a trooper through our entire session, but I’m afraid we wore her out! The amazing thing to me, though, was that she didn’t really fuss, she didn’t cry. She just laid her head down and went to sleep. A new mother’s dream. This was the scene as we wrapped up.
She was so sleepy that she even let me have a little fun posing her (at 4 months)! What an absolute doll.
Have I mentioned how much I love sleeping babies lately!?
This little guy was so stinkin fun! A tad unsure of sitting in the suitcases at first (can’t say that I blame him, though), but boy did he love playing peek-a-boo. He was so excited about the little game we had going, and he was up and down so much, that he completely tired his little legs out! When it got to the point that he was just poking his head over the top of the tub, mama came to his rescue. May you always find life so amusing sweet little man…
