My absolute favorite to photograph is the whole first year–maternity, birth, newborn, six months, one year. Why? I love people. I love getting to know these families. It’s so much fun seeing these five kiddos each time and they know the routine, have a fun time and say ‘see ya next time!’.
Meet sweet Dallas. His session is extra special because he was the FIRST in our new home-studio! I managed FIVE children in my little space without a toilet, sink, trim, or half of the curtains. He was nearing a month old (because we were rushing to finish) and not crazy about sleeping this particular day. I couldn’t have picked a better, more flexible family to share this first with. Big families often scare photographers, but they’re my favorite and they’re always more well-behaved than smaller ones! (great parenting!!) My favorite part? After the kids were done they all went in my house to play with my four. I’m sure it was complete chaos (with the dads in charge, ha!) but they were already asking when they could play again.
In Dallas’ session you’ll notice a special sheepskin (from Daddy’s grandparents) and the evidence of being Cowboy fans. Duh. 😉 Love tying in these special momentos!
Enjoy seeing this near-full newborn session at our new studio!
