…hudson and sol…

I got to have another session with these sweet brothers. It hadn’t felt like it had been 3 months already, but when their mother called and asked for another session I was happy to oblige. We again ventured over to one of my favorite spots, Moss-Wright Park in Goodlettsville for their shoot. With the cold days we have been having and the limited availability of great natural light in the evenings, it was a miracle that we were able to get these shots. These boys loved being outside and although it was cold and it took a toll on them by the end of the session, we got some cute shots!

Check out how big Sol is getting:

And now for big brother Hudson:

And we always have to get a baseball themed picture for this family, but with the cold weather all of the ball fields were locked up. So, we had to go for the next best thing…a batting cage! It was all we had available, buy by this time they were ready to go home so we had a few tears in the picture.

..brothers…

I have been taking pictures of Hudson for a while now and I was so excited when his mother contacted me about taking his 9 month pictures and some of his new little brother. Hudson’s parents went to Ethiopiaabout a month ago to finally meet and bring home little Sol (Solomon) who was about 3 months old. It was such a joy to see these two brothers interacting and just to see this family as a whole loving on each other. These two little men are just adorable and were in quite the good mood for our session. I am so glad that their mother trusted me to capture these precious moments of these two brothers! Please enjoy 🙂
Lets start with Hudson:

And we have even started the same tradition with Sol…the baseball pic! I even c0nverted it to sepia tone to match the first one we took of Hudson.

Growing with Hudson…

How fun is this! I have two boys named Hudson as clients 🙂 The youngest of the two just turned 3 months old and his parents contacted me to see if I could come do a portrait session for them. I was excited to do so and once we worked out the schedule (and around the weather) I stopped by last Sunday to get our session underway. By the way, this was the same Hudson that expressed his dislike of cameras at our first meeting for his newborn session. This time, it was a complete opposite… he was in a great mood and we had a good time!

Well, I sure had a great time and if you all get a chance please check out Hudson’s mother’s blog HERE. She is such a great artist and she has raffles often to help others as well as herself in raising money for adoptions. This is such a great cause and I wish them the best in their journey towards adoption. Here is your sneak peek and it was sure great to see how much this little guy had grown over the past three months!

Hudson’s parents wanted to start a themed baseball picture at each session, so this was the second themed picture we have done. They actually had the first picture we had created enlarged and framed, and it was hanging in their living room whenever I came over for this session!

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!

in the swing of things…

It is still baseball season for the twins and we enjoyed another one of their games yesterday evening. They are getting better with every game and it is so exciting to watch them on the field. Both of the boys played great yesterday and I was there ready for action as usual. What is even better is when the whole family gets to turn out to support the boys. We had everyone from great-grandparents down to their sisters at the game to cheer them on! Here are a few great shots from the game. These first two are of Issac.

And lets not forget Luke. Although I think he was ready to go back in to bat some more!

(This was a fun capture of Luke. If you go to see the big picture you can actually see what he is doing.)

Lets not forget some of the biggest fans of the baseball games…
Their little sister Mary…

And little Maggie!

We even took Dexter with us so he could get out of the house. We thought that possibly he could play with the children there and it would wear him out! Sure enough he had about all he could take after about 45 minutes and was ready to go. By the time we got home he was “dog” tired! 😀

…little league…

Well remember a few months ago when I posted pictures of the nephews at baseball practice? Well, they have finally got to have some games due to all the rain over the past month and here are a few shots from their game last night. It is so neat to see them growing up and getting better in baseball…

And of course you have to love the batting pictures. The boys even got to be in the line-up right after each other! It’s kinda hard to see, but while Isaac is batting Luke is on deck.

(little Luke is really giving it his all in this swing :))

Grandmother also came to watch the boys in action. Little Mary was just worn out from all the fun so she was napping!

Last but not least Issac earned the game ball from last nights game!

(Don’t worry Brea, Grandmother, and Juju; I will get you all of their pictures at the end of their season so you can make prints.)

…more baseball…

Well, I had a few more pics from baseball practice that I wanted to work on and I finally found time to do just that. I really enjoy a nice black and white picture so I thought these two would fit perfectly!
