Precious Portraits: Infants, Babies, Expectant Mothers

I’ve been really enjoying photography. Whether I’m doing a newborn photo shoot, maternity photo shoot, toddler photo shoot, or an entire family, it’s been a blast. And I’m learning so much.

Newborn PhotographyAlthough Carson was a bit cranky for his newborn photo shoot a couple of weeks ago, he did settle down and allow me to get this amazing shot. With newborns you have to be both patient and quick. Sometimes they need to eat, have their diaper changed, be burped, and be held. But I loved every minute of it because of the magical shots I was able to get once baby was happy and comforted. Carson and his amazing mommy, Ashley have taught me so much.

Toddler Portraits

I absolutely love taking toddler portraits too. This is Emma, what a precious gem, and such beautiful blue eyes. Her mommy, Crystal is amazing too. I’ve enjoyed the time I spent with them on our recent family photo shoot.

Emma’s smiling is amazing. Sometimes I’m laughing and smiling so much I forget that I’m actually working. I love being a photographer. Emma’s mommy, Crystal is expecting her third child, and I had the pleasure of taking her maternity portraits. I had such a blast.

Next time I’ll share my recent doggie photo shoot, with my 4 lb Teacup Yorkie, Lover. He was so good and sat and stayed in costume up on a table using many large props, which typically he is afraid of. I gave him lots of treats and free run time in between outfit changes. It was so much fun and amazing. I have to give you a little sample to wet your appetite.

Fun Family Photo Shoot

My first professional family photo shoot was this past weekend. I was really nervous because it was my first shoot, two parents, three kids, and I would be battling the midday sun.

Still I set out with my camera, props, blankets, and reflectors just in case. And of course I brought along my amazing husband who helps me and supports me in everything I do. Yeah, even with the reflector, there were a few minor shadows.

Family Photography

Yeah, the kids didn’t all cooperate and smile at just the right times.

Children's Photography


Yeah, when we got out to the sunflower fields most of them had turned black.

Yeah, at times it felt like I had failed as a photographer and didn’t get many good pictures.

BUT when I got home and began digging through the 300+ photos in photoshop 12, I found some amazing and fun photos I could use and give to this awesome family.

The best part was that even though the kids acted up, the weather didn’t cooperate a hundred percent, and many things didn’t go as I had planned, I still had a blast and so did they. Lots of laughs, fun, and a memory that will last a lifetime.
