For Calvin’s two month portraits we went outside and shot in the backyard of his home. He was tuckered out by the end and I got a few shots of him asleep in his crib right before I left!
The team at Cats Like Us came to me with the idea to do a take on the “awkward family photo” for their holiday postcard. We did a shoot in my studio with the shop owners Julie Ann and Andrew and their sales associate Meagan but since the store is called Cats Like Us, the cats had to be involved too! I had photographed them before and they did not enjoy the experience. So to make things easier on them I came over to Julie Ann and Andrew’s house to photograph their cats as they lounged around their home. Since all we needed were good shots of their cute faces, this approach worked well!
For Calvin’s one month portraits we shot in my studio. We were hoping Calvin would just snooze right through the photoshoot but he was wide awake for most of it. After a few shots he was not having it anymore so mommy had to comfort him. This was sort of a stroke of luck as some of my favorite shots from the shoot were of Calvin being held.
Over the last year I had the chance to photograph Calvin every month as he grew up. I really enjoy doing baby portraits but it was especially fun doing them with the same baby every month. After a year worth of photos, we had a beautiful collection of images! These are a few of my favorites from Calvin’s Newborn photoshoot.
When I recently redesigned by website, I went through many past photoshoots to gather images in order to update my portfolios. I realized I never blogged about some of my favorite photographs from 2015! Here is a shot from a maternity session I did with Jennifer early last year. We planned a few different outfits as Jennifer didn’t want fully nude maternity photos. We picked pieces in soft natural fabrics that would add something to her photos while still allowing us to document her pregnancy.
