Check out this sweetie pie! The first time I met Dina and Mark was at my first Cherry Blossom Mini Sessions, two years ago now. Since then, they’ve become regular clients and good friends, and added to their family. Natalie is their newest addition, baby sister to Anthony. They brought her into the studio for her 6-month session, which is, incidentally, my absolute favorite time to photograph a little baby. They’re super chubby, just sitting up (and comically falling down) and can’t move too quickly yet! I laughed through this entire session (and nearly ate her toes:).
I love maternity shoots. Oriana and her husband are having a little girl, and are so, so excited! When I asked Oriana about how she was feeling, with near tears in her eyes, she held onto her stomach and said “this baby girl is VERY wanted”. I’m so happy for you guys, and can’t wait to meet her!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to 2011. We’ve welcomed the new year with plenty of newborn, maternity and special event sessions. I thought we’d open the 2011 blogging season with some cuties. Mave is the newest addition to one of my family clients that has been with us since the very beginning. She’s such a precious little girl, and her big sister is such a great help. Look at those gorgeous eyes!
And little Ethan is the first baby to my really close friends. He has a very serious camera persona 🙂 No smiles for you!
When I conceived of this business idea in 2007, it felt like the most far-away, impossible dream ever. But once I committed myself to making a go of it, it seemed like the world aligned to support me in making the idea a reality. Thanks to each and every one of you who have encouraged me along the way. And to my clients, you’re not only what keeps me going, you’re who keep me inspired. I’ve loved working with each and every one of you and look forward to working together for years to come.
