All of 3 days old, this adored natural beauty made her way to my studio earlier this month. We kept everything very simple to focus on her perfection.
The most recent issue (Summer 2010) of Midwifery Today magazine includes a wonderful and inspiring article written by a client of mine and included with the story of her at-home-water-birth are two of my images of her most recent darling newborn.
A few sessions that I really wanted to blog before I left for Australia.
Little guy has no chance…so many pairs of loving arms to hold.
Another sweet boy…my camera has been in front of his two siblings multiple times, but this was his solo session.
I was so glad to get this guy fitted into the schedule. He was a joy – a pure delight.
Seems like yesterday this doll’s older brother was in the studio for his newborn session.
Another family that seems to grow with me…this time brought a new sister to share.
Sweetheart and very laid back..so much so, that she waited to come a couple of weeks after her due date.
Now that I am home, I get asked how we enjoyed our trip. I have to say that a smile always comes across my face. So many beautiful experiences my family got to have there.
Along with the amazing time shopping and exploring, I also worked…teaching 4 groups of photographers over 2 weeks time on “Photographing the Family Connection”. There was awesome kindred spirits there. I fell in love with each group that sat in front of me. Thank you all for your kindness and sharing.
Below are the families, babies, and children who I photographed at the end of each day for the classes to see the techniques that I use and speak of in action.
I was so excited that I had a field to shoot in. And even better, a beach just steps away… ah….to be back there again.
First up: Australian Pro Rugby player for the Gold Coast Titans – Nathan Friend and his gorgeous family.
2nd group: Amazing photographer Lana Bell of Little Posers and her beautiful kids and hubby.
3rd group: Another fabulous photographer Jemma Entriken of White Wish Photography with her darling bunch.
Last day: This family was all about play! The fun and creative team of Matt and Katie photographers filmed this particular shoot. I can’t wait to see what they got!
This recent session had me counting…I have had a the honor & pleasure of photographing at least 12 photographers during my career. Many local here in Fort Smith, others from other parts of Arkansas (Northwest & Central), and a few out of state photographers (Texas, Oklahoma, California). And there are 4 more on the books for later this year. Wow!
I can say that it used to give me butterflies, being a photographer you know they don’t get the opportunity to be in FRONT of the camera too often, so you want to give them your best. But now…it just makes me happy and usually my “job “is pretty easy because they know what to do – love on each other and keep smiling.
This fabulous family belongs to Crystal Goss. Maybe I should up my count to 13, because I have photographed her babies before when the youngest was a newborn. She is an amazing person and equally talented. Her work with the March of Dimes is very inspiring. Go check her out and see…
