I had a special request recently. A Mom reached out to me and said she wanted a mini session with her 6 month old. He was a preemie she told me, so she missed out on both maternity and newborn photos.
We Moms are rarely in photos to begin with so my heart broke a little for her, missing out on those amazing motherhood milestone moments.
I don’t normally do these kind of minis but I am SO GLAD I agreed.
In walked Chelsey and I think my jaw hit the floor. She’s a model right? Like a supermodel.
She slipped into this white gown that only made her flawless skin even more luminescent and she simply loved on her little miracle baby while I snapped away. I don’t think I’ve ever met someone so at ease in front of the camera.
And Carlo soaked up that love and cooed and smiled and babbled little love notes right back to her.
Sometimes those sessions that are atypical for us are simply magical!
How often does a client come on their actual birthday? That was the case with Hazel’s session today. 365 trips around the sun for her; 365 sunrises for her parents. A celebration for both.
Make a wish Hazel!

Meet Ben. Or perhaps I should say, remember Ben? At 7 sessions, he’s my most photographed client ever. A true Bump and Beyond Evie Claire kid.
Today we celebrated 9 months and he’s changed so much in the last 2 months. This boy is ON THE GO now. He gave us a run for our money (and a workout) but rewarded us with his signature smile and those gorgeous eyelashes again. What is up with these boys lately giving me lash envy?!!
And shall we chat about my 3 new boy backdrops? I mean really?!!! In my best Rachel Zoe voice, “I die”. Ben was the perfect model and I think Evie enjoyed a night off!
He’s my little old man Mom told me. Belongs in another era. The seersucker cap and suspenders sealed the deal. Aiden was a throwback from a time when men were men and women were women.
And then he put on some camo and sealed the deal as the cutest little explorer ever. Safari themed cake smash? Yes please! For a minute there we thought he was going to stick his whole face in the cake (when will this happen?!!!) but he pulled back, channeled that inner old man, and proceeded with dignity.
