Theo | Newborn Photos

Leave a comment

Just a few weeks ago, my family and I were lucky enough to be in California at the perfect time to meet newborn Theodore Anders, our first nephew, and the kids’ first cousin! This 9 lb 1 oz bundle of cuteness was born April 23rd, 2016 at 1:40 pm. The kids were over the moon to meet their very first cousin, and just loved to hold and give him kisses.

I would have loved to have all my usual newborn props available to do a proper newborn session for sweet little Theo, but alas, being in California, none of my usual stuff was available – and with all the loving on him, and guests coming to see him, we ended up with a lot less time to focus on his photos than I would have liked. To be fair, I would have liked to be able to photograph his sweet face 24/7 for our entire trip. Instead, we snuck some photo time into the cracks of our visit. Luckily little Theo is quite photogenic.

Congratulations Isamira & Ian! He is one adorable & sweet little guy! We love him & can’t wait to visit again.

Sunflower Farm | Play Day Casual Photos

Leave a comment

I hadn’t heard of Sunflower Farm until late this Spring. Located not far from Boulder, in South Longmont; it was a convenient and fun place to visit with the kids. If you are like I was, and haven’t heard of Sunflower Farm; it is a hobby farm with a ton of hands-on activities, designed for young kids to explore. There were so many things for them to do, they just loved it. Closing time came way too quickly.

We visited in mid-may, and the weather was perfect. Just as we were heading out, minutes from closing time, a rain storm began – but we couldn’t have asked for a nicer morning.

I took photos of a variety of the activities, but there were some we didn’t get to. The kids took the lead, and Mavid definitely spent the majority of his time getting lost in the giant hay pile. They also loved feeding the animals from the buckets of corn scattered around the animal pens, building with the mega building blocks, and climbing on the farm machinery.

If you have toddlers &/or preschoolers; seriously, I can’t recommend this place enough!

Adalyn | Newborn Shoot

Born October 13th, Adalyn is the newest baby girl of my friend Jordan & her husband Jules. She joins 3 big sisters, and it is clear they all adore her. The youngest older sister, Amelia, couldn’t resist giving her some squeezes and love during her session.

I have done a few photo shoots for Jordan & her family over the years, but my heart holds a soft spot for newborn photos – so this was probably my favourite. Though it was certainly fun doing her announcement shoot earlier this summer as well (coming to the blog soon, stay tuned)!

We got together for her newborn session when Adalyn was about 3 1/2 weeks old. She was such a sweet adorable little doll, and wide awake for most of her session; a little less curled up and sleepy than a 4-10 day old, but just as cute!

 

 

Peace | Newborn Shoot

I’m going to be working backwards as I catch up on some photo blogs. So here is my most recent session with sweet baby Peace.

I met Peace when she was just 4 days old. She stayed true to her name and was perfectly peaceful, and slept for her entire session. She just loved being wrapped and cozy, and was a true pleasure to work with. Her little toes, and button nose, were enough to give anyone baby fever.

She is the first girl of the family, and was welcomed by 2 big brothers. Her mom was clearly elated to have a little girl, and her nursery was decorated with many handmade touches that were just too gorgeous not to include in the session. I mean really, her mobile was just amazing; and the touches of pink, mixed with bright bold colours, on a neutral palette, tied the room together beautifully. Her grandparents were visiting and celebrating her arrival as well, so of course they needed to be included in the session. I love when the whole family can be involved.

Peace is one lucky little darling, clearly loved, and completely precious.
