It is always a pleasure to work with returning clients, and even greater when those clients become friends! :)
I was so happy to be able to photograph Julia and John Patrick's special milestones and this incredibly fun time in their family's life story. It really feels like just yesterday though I was capturing Julia's baptism. Time really does fly. Julia has grown into even more of a little lovebug, and she and her big brother, John Patrick, were celebrating milestone birthdays together! :) It was so cute to see them interacting with each other, and you can tell quickly that John Patrick is going to be such a great big brother, watching over Julia as she grows up and helping to keep her smiling! :)
We really wanted to capture John Patrick in his element too - and that means TRAINS!!! We brainstormed some ideas, and his mom did an AMAZING job setting up our train shot idea in real life!! Through the miracle of her mommy-ness, she was even able to keep him from playing with them until I arrived! I was super impressed! :) ( Just try to tell a three year old NOT to destroy something that is perfectly set-up! haha They can smell fear!!! ha) We then, of course, let him have at his trains...playing with his favorite buddy - his dad! So important to me to capture these everyday life moments for my clients, as JP and his dad are going to love being able to look back on these memories together. We finished off our session with some more shots of the sweet birthday girl, who had a blast with the balloons and was too cute in her little crown! Just want to squeeze her! Had to sneak in a few family shots too! It was a packed session filled with so many moments to remember!
Looking forward to continuing to watch these little munchkins grow!! :)
John Patrick was navigating the skies! :) (He may have seen the balloon I accidentally set free at one point...ha!) Brother and sister adorableness. Love that their birthdays are so close together! The birthday girl! :) Protective big brother already! :) Happy girl! :) How big is Julia!?!?!? SO BIG!!! Yes, Nesa....despite your self-labeled "crazy" hair (haha), this is one of my favorite photos from our session! ;) :) Such a real mommy moment to treasure! Daddy's little girl! :) I love to capture kids with what they are loving at whatever age they are at. Who loves trains?? John Patrick does!!! :) Love these sweet, quiet, real family moments!
Every birthday girl needs a tiara...obviously! :)
Love this!! Fun with mommy!
Sweet girl! :) Strike a pose!!! :) Also one of my favorites, as this will capture forever Julia's favorite mode of transportation at this special time in her life. She likes to "scoot" more than she likes to crawl! And the girl is FAST!!!! :) So cute! And we were all excited to get her standing up! :)
Love!! And mom's sweet necklace has all the important days of this family's life so far! :) Birthday boy! More train time!!! With his best buddy...DAD! :)
So many sweet moments!! Love these two little ones!!
