….When people ask me what type of work I do, it always give me a giggle when I tell them that I get to hang out with my little buddies, make them laugh, and play with cute babies all day :) These three cuties definitely kept me on my toes and were so fun to hang out with. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing them three times…and I love that they are now my little buddies! I thoroughly enjoy hanging out with preschoolers – they are hilarious! And, and…I was even able to get photos of baby brother without his ziplock bag of snacks! Woohoo :) Our time together was so much fun and I can’t wait to hang out with them again!!! I will admit that it’s not always easy to photograph three active children together. Most often, getting just one good photo is considered a success in my book – but for this session what I was able to get made me extremely happy! Maybe the kids thought it was funny watching a big ol’ pregnant lady run around :) But I like to think it was because they were having fun hanging out with their *big* buddy – instead of getting their picture taken :)  Of all the sibling photos, my favorite one by far is the one of them sitting on the crates with their hands in the air – I think it’s soo cute how they each did their own thing when I yelled “put your hands in the air!” And for the family photo, my favorite is the one with the purple wall. I do love a good portrait with everyone looking at the camera, but I always love candid shots more! Plus, look at how much fun they’re having in that photo :)

  • Sandra Thank you Julie! I loved the pictures....especially the candids! It's so obvious from the pictures the kids had so much fun with you. The colors are also amazing. I can't thank you enough for everything!!(08.30.2011 05:19pm)

All of the ingredients for an amazing photo shoot were available when I photographed this lovely couples baby boy. We had a super sweet, sleepy, adorable newborn…A very organized, well-prepared mommy…A super helpful and loving daddy…Lots of big windows filling the rooms with beautiful natural light…and the icing on the cake was a heart warming sleep smile from our little model himself!

…lighthearted and playful! That’s how sessions should always be :) This sweet family completely and totally loved being together, and it was clear throughout the entire session. Giggles, laughter, hugs & kisses all around!

…to meet you! Really, really, REALLY happy! Would you look at that smile?! No words to describe her, no words at all. Those cheeks, those rainbow eyes, that button nose! Oh my! She was the smiliest newborn baby girl that I’ve photographed to date. EVER. After she pooped on my blanket, she was all smiles for the remainder of the session :) Trust me, I don’t mind a little baby poop, especially if it means I will get sleep smiles all session long! What an absolutely adorable, super chubby cuddly little girl! She was a total joy to photograph! Of course, everyone loves a chubby baby – how can anyone resist adorable baby rolls?!  But I especially love them because they tend to be super sleepy :) Our sweet girl was indeed a sleepy little thing and that made for one happy photographer. But watch out, when awake, she opened her eyes big and wide – showing us just how gorgeous they are :)

…is the best word that I could think of to describe him. Sure, words like happy, smiley, giggly, jolly, adorably sweet, cuddly & super huggable also come to mind when thinking about him – but what I love most is how he’s just like a burst of SUNSHINE :) His big smile literally lights up his entire face (and the faces of everyone around him). I had a wonderful time hanging out with this amazing little boy and his parents! Not only is he a little (or, more like BIG) ray of sunshine, but I have to say that he’s also one of the most relaxed, easy going, cooperative tots I’ve photographed. Ever. Not a fussy moment the entire time we were together – he was literally all giggles :) Don’t you just want to give him hugs all day long? Such a sweeeetie pie!

  • Shannon Thank you Julie!!! The pictures are amazing, as usual. :) Sam had so much fun with you, he kept talking about you all day. Can't wait to see you again in December! <3(08.18.2011 07:47am)

…the first is this sweet little girl who is going to be a big sister soon. A little miracle, blessing, angel. The second is her baby sister, growing in mommy’s belly! Yet another blessing :) I’m so happy for mommy and daddy! When we first met almost 2 years ago, mom and I instantly had a connection. I felt like I knew her for years…and now, I still feel the same – actually, even more so because I get to document their second baby bump! They are such an amazing, kind, gentle, warm and loving family – and I’m so excited that their little family is growing! And of course, would you look at how mommy is just glowing. She is beautiful, inside and out…one of sweetest, kindest, loveliest people I have ever met!

definitely didn’t fall far from the tree! Clearly, these kids are beautiful, just like their parents. A year ago when I did baby brother’s newborn session, I was already looking forward to seeing him again because I just knew what a gorgeous boy he would be. If he was anything like his sister, he’d amaze me more than once with those gorgeous blue eyes and adorable smile! I wish I could find the old blog posts of big sister’s 7 month and 1 year photo sessions – as she was such a perfect, beautiful little model! And just as I predicted, little brother is following in the footsteps of his sister and is now a gorgeous, gorgeous one year old! I must say that these kids were such a breeze to photograph! Lucky lucky, yes I am :) I have so many favorites – so hang on, this post will be a looong one.

…he’s a handsome little guy! After their maternity photos, I just knew – KNEW that their baby boy was going to be a handsome little guy, and I was right :) I must say that I’ve been really lucky with my recent newborn sessions – babies have been giving lots of newborn sleep smiles! How adorable is he? If you could see him in person you’d fully appreciate how delicate and lovely his newborn baby skin is…how long and perfect his lashes are, and what a cute pink pout he has. It was such a pleasure to finally meet him in person! And he was an absolute angel – sleeping the session away :)

…photographing this beautiful little girl and her equally gorgeous mommy any time, ANY time. They have such a warm, loving connection…a special mother-daughter bond that is so clear to see. Baby girl just loves her mommy, and mommy is definitely smitten, too! The icing on the cake is how gorgeous they both are – wow, what a sight for sore eyes!  There were a few times during our photo session when I had to stop for a minute because I was literally overwhelmed by how gorgeous they both were, how contagious their connection was, and how perfectly the sunset light set the scene for their genuine, loving interactions. I also loved how daddy was so amazing at making his little girl giggle. As he told funny jokes, she was laughing sooo hard – which was the cutest thing because she has such an amazing laugh :) It’s been a real joy photographing this sweet girl over the past 3 years. I can hardly believe that when I first met her, she was only a few weeks old…and now she’s a lovely toddler! My how time flies!
