Newborn Hudson!

Wow! Of all the names I had liked for a little boy, I managed to be able to shoot two different boys named  Hudson this year! This newborn was about a month old as his mother and I had been planning for just the right day for his photo shoot. Little did I know what would be in store for me when I came to their home for the shoot…

I arrived and was greeted by Hudson’s parents to a warm and wonderful home. They had so many great choices for props and backdrops in their home, but we ran into just one little problem…Hudson 🙂 As soon as we got through a couple of different locations in his home, Hudson thought it was time to try give his lungs some exercise. The remainder of the shoot consisted of a super mommy who was trying everything to keep her little boy calm and one exuberant little Hudson who didn’t like having the camera pointed in his direction! All I can say is thank you to Hudson’s parents for one of my most memorable photo shoots yet! It was such a joy being in your home and sharing that time with you. I hope you enjoy your sneek peek!

Hudson was telling me how much he didn’t like this pose, although I kept reassuring him otherwise 🙂

Super mommy hard at work. I thought this silhouette was just great!

And this was my favorite. Hudson’s mother and I talked about this shot for quite a while before I came to their home. Hudson’s daddy is quite the baseball fan and this was to be one of their most charished shots. I added a little sepia tone to really give it some character which I love!

6-month-old Kaylor!

Little Kaylor came back for her 6 month pictures today! It is always great hanging out with Kaylor’s parents as they are so cool and laid back. Sweet Kaylor has gotten so big and she was so much fun today during our shoot as she was smiling so big and sitting up on her own now too! Today’s session was so much fun and it went by in a flash! From one setup to another, we were running around getting some great shots for this little cutie. Anyway, enough jabbering and onto the picture previews.

I like to call this one “Daddy’s Girl!”

And this was among my favorites. It reminds me of a porcelain doll on a stand. What a beautiful little girl Kaylor has grown to be.

Maggie Moo!!!

Well, sweet Maggie is turning 15 months old and we got a jump on her pictures this weekend. One of the only bad things about being a photographer is you have to schedule a shoot with yourself for your own daughter! We tried to do her 1 year pictures, but Maggie wasn’t in the best of moods so we got just a handful of pictures. This time for her 15 month pictures we wanted to go all out. I really wanted to go outside to take her pictures so Alie and I spent the longest time just trying to decide where. Finally, it hit us this morning…Juju and Poppie Eddie’s house! It was the backdrop for our wedding photos and what would be better than on this beautiful day than to have a shoot at such a beautiful location. Well, within an hour and a half of getting up, we were on the road and started shooting as soon as we got there to take advantage of the great conditions. We had so many beautiful choices for shots and we had such great help from Juju and Poppie Eddie that Alie and I got finished in an hour and a half.

Once we got home, we sorted through all of these wonderful shots and I started the post processing and got them completed this evening. Here is just a small sample of what beautiful shots we got and I am posting a few here and a few others on our home blog. These are so beautiful and thank you again to Alie, Juju, and Poppie Eddie for the help today 🙂
