This little guy came in from Ham Lake for his photo session earlier this year. When his parents contacted me, he was already 6 weeks old. Normally, I photograph newborns at 2 weeks of age or younger, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from this guy. Would he be awake the whole time? Would he still be OK with being posed? Turns out, he did great! Sometimes older babies end up being the best sleepers. Aidan was a champ, and I just love how these turned out!
Rowan and his family came to my studio from Maple Grove for his 8 month portrait session earlier this year. What can I saw about Rowan? He is absolutely ADORABLE! He is one of my first year baby planners, so I get to see him every 4 months or so. I’ve been photographing him since he was a newborn, and he just keeps getting cuter every time I see him. I was so excited to use my adorable diaper cover/suspender/hat set that I had bought earlier in the year, and the bear photo is similar to one I took of his sister at the same age.
Could this little girl be any cuter!?! Daphne came in to the studio from Minneapolis for her 8 month photos, and I could not get over her adorable red curls and big blue eyes, with an adorable smile to match. She’s like the perfect little Gerber baby. Eight months is one of my favorite ages to photograph. They can’t run away yet, and are usually pretty content and smiley. Always teething, but they don’t ever seem to mind too much. I had so much fun photographing this baby session, and I love how her photos turned out. Simple and beautiful. Enjoy!
I’m embarrassed to say, but I shot Bode’s newborn session back in February (yes, 7 months ago). Better late than never with the blogging, right? It’s been a busy summer. My youngest started kindergarten this year, so I decided to make more room for family time and really enjoy this last summer before both kids started school. I still took on sessions, but kept it to one a week usually, and included more trips to the cabin, a trip to Disneyland with the kids and my parents, a trip to Door County, WI (at the awesome Glidden Lodge – if you’re ever looking for a great place to get away, check it out!), and I just got back in town from a wedding in Vegas. Summer flew by, but I’m really looking forward to the craziness and cool temperatures that fall will bring, and I’m hoping that I will be able to get caught up on blogging all these sessions from earlier this year.
Bode was just 7 days old when we shot his newborn session. He was a tiny one, and (from what I remember) was a great little sleeper, too.
Random fact: the week I photographed these two, I had three sessions with red-headed babies/kids all within a few days of each other. I photographed Natalie when she was one year old, and was happy to hear from her parents again when they contacted me to set up another session with Natalie and her little brother, Roy, for his one year photos. These kids were just the best. Full of smiles and giggles, and Roy is an absolute charmer. I had so many photos that I loved from this session. Here are a few of my favorites.
