The first year for a baby is so full of growth and development! It was one of my favorite times with my children because there is so much discovery and joy, on both sides. The one thing I missed, however, was having really simple, clean portraits of my children. I didn't have a Studio back then! And I was just starting on my photography journey. So I have lots of at-home photographs, and plenty of outdoor shots.. but nothing like what I provide to my clients now. Which, in many ways, is why I do it…
Here is the biggest problem I see… Often after we have our baby, we get stuck in the day to day minutia of keeping everyone fed and alive.. in turn forgetting about preserving those precious firsts in our baby's life. Things like crawling, sitting up, smiling.. even finding their feet! All of those little milestones come and go so quickly. And before we know it, we have a full-fledged toddler on our hands with no frame-worthy photographs of our baby's first year…
I am so excited to be holding my second annual Halloween Portrait event in just a couple weeks.. and this year, it's 100% complimentary for my 2017 family-session clients. But don't worry! If you aren't a client (yet), you can still grab a spot and give your child this fun photoshoot experience to celebrate Halloween this year.
Yay for Halloween! It was a total blast to have all the adorable kids in the Studio this past weekend, wearing their costumes in front of the camera. Mini sessions are completely different from what I usually do (I'm all about taking plenty of time when I work with families), but they're a super fun way to get to know a few more local families in the area.
Here are a few of my favorites from that day (and as always, I completely respect parents who don't want me to share photos of their little ones).
Kids.. Costumes... Halloween!
This is one of my favorite holidays. And it's definitely a favorite for my kids. They get so excited about the costumes they wear, and I definitely want to remember what character or animal they were each year. So it seemed like a really fun idea to hold an event at the Studio for local kids to get their portrait taken in their costumes!
