Overnight Baby Obsession

Really. It was over night. One day I was like "no way I will shoot newborns" and the next I was like "BRING ME ALL OF THE BABIES!"

I love the lifestyle-type photos of the new baby at home with mom and dad, and those are super easy and fun.

But then they whipped out a tu-tu and I almost died. A few little adjustments and my obsession was born.

The posed shots are hard, yo. You needs tons of equipment and props and good lighting and then you need a sleepy baby. I don't know if you know this, but babies pretty much do what they want to do. So if they don't want to sleep, they won't. But I love the challenge of getting the shot. It may take a few hours, but it's soooooo worth it.

I cheated here. These are 2 out of 3 triplets. One was nursing and I just couldn't stop photographing them.&nbsp;

So for now, I'm a photographer who wants to specialize in weddings, babies, and concerts. Can I do that or is that just weird? I am weird, so I should just roll with it. And that's what I plan to do :)

So Many Awesome Shoots This Weekend

I am having so much fun editing all of the photos from this weekend! In addition to some corporate headshots and commercial location shots on Friday, I got to shoot 3 great families and came away with many, many photos that will hopefully be cherished forEVAH :) It's hard to pick just a few, but I will try...

 

Christina and Enrique Engagement

OMG these two made it so easy... the perfect location, props, poses, and they are adorable to boot! I thoroughly enjoyed every part of this shoot and can only imagine how beautiful their wedding will be in Mexico. Congratulations Christina and Enrique and here's to a long and happy life together!  <3

Family Shoot With Brittani

I had a ball chasing Mr. Grayson around Mayfield Park and trying to get him to look at the camera with his adorable smile. He was fascinated with the peacocks and I was super bummed I didn't get any pictures of him with them. And he was so happy and playful, even when his balloon floated away! That could have been the end of the photo shoot right there, but he said, "bye balloon!" and we were on our way. Whew :) Happy birthday Grayson!!
