My favorite little boy is turning 5! I've been photographing him since he was just a little blip in his momma's belly. Each session becomes my new favorite photo shoot with him. Since his last birthday the family has moved. So - for his 5th birthday shoot we explored his new community beach with his tackle box in hand. Mom wanted a fun, fishy filled portrait session and, as always, I think he gave us exactly what we were looking for! Happy birthday Zayden!!!
This little cutie turned one and I cannot believe it. It feels like just a few months ago I drove to the hospital to meet her and congratulate her gorgeous Momma! The invites for Ella's 1st birthday bash had been sent and the theme was to be Twinkle Twinkle Little Star; everything gold, pretty, and pink. Mom wanted a few fresh pictures of this peanut's face before we did the traditional cake smash. Ella lit up and embraced her job as model, but the minute the cake came out she was done. Mess? No thank you! Happy birthday, Ella!
Sometimes, you're so busy planning your son's birthday party you forget to schedule his birthday photoshoot. Being a photographer and the best friend, I stepped right up. One evening, while mom and dad went out to pick up Zayden's birthday present (a bike, shhhh don't tell him) I tossed some props together, grabbed a batch of balloons, and came over to hang out with our soon to be four year old. Fortunately for us all, they live a short walk to the water and Zayden is pretty cooperative. I am over the moon at how well these turned out. Happy birthday Zayden! "Bam Bam" loves you!
Last week, I received a message from one of the beautiful chicks I cheered with in high school. Her family is preparing to sell their 1st home, and while moving some things, she realized she never had her wedding dress professionally cleaned. Since it was already in need of a wash, she was interested in having some photos of her daughter taken in the special gown. We met at the horse farm at Andover Park. Meghan loved watching and chatting with the horses then we pulled out mom's wedding gown and the real fun began! Shoots like these are one of the many reasons I love photographing! Reconnecting with old friends AND capturing precious giggles like these. Dream come true!
Follow me, Samantha, and my passion here! I love meeting and capturing your beautiful families!
