Sometimes it doesn’t work out for me to be able to shoot the wedding but we can definitely schedule to shoot the bride’s bridal portrait. Thankfully Emi’s dress came in early enough that we were able to schedule her portrait session while she was in town. Emi was excited and ready to go when I showed up and it was smooth sailing. Originally we were going to do only an indoor shoot but we ended up also adding an outdoor segment. And I’m so thankful we went outside!
It all started with a simple inquiry to shoot their wedding. It continued with a meeting, then the engagement session, and then the wedding. And now? Their baby’s newborn photography session! It’s awesome to be a part of a family’s greatest life moments. I get to watch from the front row!
This sweet little girl showed up at the studio and made us work for her sleeping shots. But we eventually got there. We got the cutest shots both awake and asleep. Thanks precious little girl!
I always have this small fear in the back of my mind that I’ll show up to a portrait shoot and that for some reason the location is unusable. And that’s what happened with the Figliola family. We showed up to the chosen location and it had been bulldozed! I had to think quick and quickly change our location. Thankfully I had a another location nearby that we could use so we headed over to begin our shoot. This little lady was about to become a big sister so it was their last photo session just the three of them. She’s a spunky little one as most children that age are. Which means a lot of chasing her around. She kept it fun! And by now, she’s a big sister to a baby brother!!
I love photographing one year olds! It’s one of my favorite things because we get to include a birthday cake as part of the portrait session. Combine that with an adorable little red-headed boy!! Completely adorable, beyond words.
We met up to photograph shots of this cute little family as a group and some interactive moments. We finished up with the cake smash. This can get messy! The messier the better, of course.
I’m so, so sad to say that this may be the last time I get to photography this delight of a child!They are moving away this summer to Georgia which makes it quite a bit difficult to see them often. I’ve photographed her ever 3 months for the past two years and she’s blossomed so much in that time. More than anything I’ve enjoyed the humor and kindness that was always exhibited in this family – it was always so fun to watch and to photograph.
I’ll always especially remember the last shots we did where she looks like the most beautiful angel. I didn’t want to stop clicking! I’ll miss them.
