This session was definitely a smooth one! It was like taking a nice, relaxed, fun stroll at the park. And boy, was I lucky – not only was this family super easy to photograph, but we lucked out with a cloudy morning…so we were able to shoot at this beautiful little park path that I hardly ever get to use because the sun is usually blaring!

  • Sarah Great shots this year Julie! Love the great shot of the kids hugging. But my secret favorite is the one of Cash jumping. Can't wait to see them all on your site!(10.26.2012 09:50am)

Of course, their laughter was contagious! I joined right in and was laughing hysterically, too. These are the images I love most :) A nicely composed image of everyone looking at the camera is always nice, but my favorites are these real moments. Can’t you just see how happy they are? Sure, it was cold, windy, the air was moist & everyone was sandy – but man, were they having a blast! The first image is my favorite, hands down, from the entire session!

…really, she is the sweetest little girl ever! So adorable and super sweet. I had a feeling she’d be an amazing big sister when we met for the first time during her mommy’s maternity session. And of course, what a great big sister she is! She enjoyed holding her baby brother, talking to him, and cuddling with him, too. What a lucky little brother he is to have such a lovely big sister :) And oh my, how precious is baby brother? He has really gorgeous dark hair and the cutest little nose. Definitely an alert baby, as he pretty much stayed awake the entire session! Nevertheless, we got some amazing pictures & he even gave in to Mr. Sandman and slept for a few minutes at the very end :) What an adorable family…and a true pleasure to be around!

What better way to kick off my busy season than with a photo shoot of the Smith Family. Just 6 months ago, the twins were only 1/3 of what they weigh now. Tiny, so tiny…itty bitty little things. It’s truly amazing just how fast babies grow and change during their first year! Now they are adorably chubby and growing bigger and bigger by the day. I had an inkling that they’d have beautiful blue eyes just like their big brothers – and boy was I right. Both babies have big blue eyes, gorgeous! They were also very good to me during our session. The impossible shot (one with all 4 kids looking at me), was made possible because they were quite the cooperative little duo :) But I know they will make me work next time – they’ll be walking…so can you imagine the workout I will get then?! Bring it though, I’m ready! I’m also ready and totally into my busy reason right now. It has begun! Holidays are just around the corner – unbelievable!

  • Meloni Hallock Julie - Absolutely delicious images of all the boys. Thanks for capturing such precious memories.(10.16.2012 11:29am)

…my kids are just about the same ages as theirs. In fact, this session reminded me of the session I just had for our own family photos (yes, we even get our family photos done every year). The funniest sight was trying to get the kids together for a sibling shot – hilarious! Even for my own session, getting my kids together for just one shot proved to be an interesting task! We did get the image I was envisioning (kids sitting next to each other & looking at me). But my favorite turned out to be the one of the images above – holding hands, laughing, and looking in completely opposite directions! Love that! A dose of real life for you :) I had a completely wonderful time photographing this family! They are so cute together and the kids are are just beautiful! It’s hard to believe that it has been almost 3 years since I first photographed little Nathan as a baby! Now he’s a big, tall, handsome preschooler AND big brother! Time sure does fly!

…he hugged mommy, looked at me, and then smiled within the first 5 minutes of our session! Perfect! That made me one happy camper :) What a handsome baby boy he is, too. Big, gorgeous eyes just like his mommy’s! He also has the most awesome laugh – it doesn’t get any cuter than a big smile showing those baby teeth! And of course, his glowing mommy was absolutely stunning. Super mom indeed – as she has only weeks to go before baby #2 is born, and also has a 1 year old! Amazing! A beautiful family :)

  • Bruce & Suzette Standerwick Sooo cute! We loved that smile. "That for sure is a beautiful and happy family. Can't wait to see baby #2. We are proud grandparents.(10.05.2012 06:50pm)

…is definitely in mommy’s arms. And who can blame him? It sure beats sitting in a bucket :) Plus he gets lots of snuggles, hugs & kisses. What a super cute baby boy, right?! Such gorgeous blue eyes! I had the most fun hanging out with this sweetie and his family & thoroughly enjoyed watching how wonderful his grandma was at entertaining him and making him smile – so cute! We were definitely lucky to have her there for our session! All of her efforts paid off – just look at his sweet smile :) And I must say that he has a super duper daddy, too. Daddy was very patient and helpful the entire session – and always there! A lot of times dads run away and hide after about 10 minutes into the session :) Not this daddy though, he was very supportive and involved! Kudos to daddy! A wonderful session with a wonderful family!

…this sweet family was a dream to photograph. Mom is just beautiful. She is definitely all belly and is looking so amazing – can you believe she’s due to have her baby in just a few days? I wish I looked like that during my last week of pregnancy! And big sister to be was a total joy to photograph! What a charming and adorable little girl! I really loved how sweet and silly she was…and her smile, wow, how beautiful! I can tell she is going to be a wonderful sister to her baby brother, and I’m looking forward to meeting him soon! What a dreamy session this was. An adorable family. They clearly love each other to pieces and it’s evident in their interactions…an effortless, natural, beautiful session celebrating their final moments as a party of three!
