This tree swing was a DIY labor of love and I am completely IN LOVE how it turned out! I’ve longed for a tree swing for years and finally figured out a way to make it happen – I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. These sessions are a great option for any age….toddlers, school age, sisters…even pregnant bellies! Babies are welcome with their mamas.
I first met Mila and her lovely family last year for her newborn photography session. I remember meeting her and feeling like I’d hit the dream baby jackpot! She was gorgeous, squishy, and perfectly sleepy with a full head of dark hair & gorgeous eyelashes…AND had the most adorable and cooperative big brother. :) Then they signed up for the Bebe Plan…BONUS…as a Bebe Plan member I’d get to see her several times throughout the year!
A few weeks ago Mila came back for the second session of her Bebe Plan. I felt like I’d died and gone to heaven…she is just a photographer’s dream. :) Still as gorgeous as ever and now EVEN SQUISHIER! I could have easily photographed her all day long – completely adore this little lady. It’s always an honor to be able to share in first year memories – can’t wait to see this family again in the fall.
Isn’t she the absolute sweetest?!?! Here’s Mila now. Watching my little clients change over the first year is one of my very favorite things.
Max was a complete gem for his newborn session. A truly beautiful baby boy with soft, perfect features. Pure sweetness from head to toe! Of course we had to snag one photo with his adorable big brother too! :)
Another session from the summer…this handsome little guy just graduated the Bebe Plan this fall, but this was his 6 month session from June. I’m kinda sorta missing these glorious outdoor colors and the pretty summer light. If it’s going to be cold, I want there to be snow – not dreary days and gross dead grass. ;) Will is a such a charmer. He is never quite sure what to think of me at the start of the session, but always warms up by the end. And those big expressive blue eyes of his…who could resist?!? Is he not just the best!!! It has been such a joy capturing him over this last year and getting to know his wonderful parents.
Also FYI: Spring & summer dates are open for booking! If you’re on the newsletter list, you should have received an email with available dates. Shoot me an email if you didn’t receive one and would like to schedule a session.
