A cute little family of 3 have hit the blog! This one is pretty cute. I've been shooting so many newborns recently it was fun to have a change of pace. Although Oliver was a newborn only a few months before taking these. But I still think it's different. And Oliver is to die for! He really is such a cute kid. When I got home and showed my husband he said "they have a pretty cute kid". He doesn't say stuff like that very often, so you know he means it.
Babies Babies Babies! I love having babies in my studio! Like seriously can life get much better? I am a HUGE fan of getting a newborn lifestyle session done after having babies. It's a great way to capture those first few days and the deep and tender love that is found instantly when a baby is put into your arms.
This was the first lifestyle newborn session I was able to do in my studio and I am in LOVE with all the images that came from it. We actually knew the Donakey family back when we were childless and so were they! We all were in school and married when we first met. In fact Ken was one of the leaders of our church in the area we were living.
One of the biggest questions I get from photographers or people who have an interest in photography is, "How do you get those photos that capture the life and fun in a family?" I remember when I first started taking family photos: I HATED it. I hated it because I couldn't handle kids, I felt like their personalities frustrated me and made my "picture perfect" ideas never come fruition.
