Photographing babies is always special, but photographing the baby of someone you know is the icing on the cake. And, when that baby is over-the-top cute and so cooperative you have to keep checking that she’s a real baby, you just pinch yourself!
Here’s Baby Kendall and all the hats, baskets and blankets she modeled for me!
When identical boys like this are booked, the agency will want them to look as similar as possible in the photos. They will typically get cast for one role, so they want to be able to double for each other!
Cuteness runs in this family, because the boys’ sister is a stunner and she’s also modeling with Zuri!
More spring mini-sessions coming up! The wildflowers are starting pop up here and there, so by mid-April they’ll be perfect for photo sessions. I’m going to wait until the week before to pick the exact location (to see which of my favorites has the best flower growth), but it will be in Long Beach, Seal Beach or Huntington Beach.
Here’s the details: $100 for a 20 minute session The first 2 to sign up for April 20 and the first 2 to sign up for April 21 will get a free digital image with their purchase. [firstname.lastname@example.org or 562.980.6480]
April 20 5:40-6:00, 6:00-6:20, 6:20-6:40, 6:40-7:00
April 21st 5:40-6:00, 6:00-6:20, 6:20-6:40, 6:40-7:00
As you can see, the times are in the evening, because there’s just nothing better than sunset lighting in a field of long grass and wildflowers! This could be a great Mother’s Day gift or think ahead for Father’s Day!
Hey y’all! With Easter coming up this Sunday, I wanted to share the mini photo sessions that happened a few weeks ago at Rascals to Rebels. If you haven’t been to this children’s boutique (in Rossmoor) yet, you need to go check it out! They have a great selection of clothes and toys…plus their staff is some of the nicest people you’ll meet!
On to the photos! Check out all these cuties…
Do you recognize these twins on the right below? They play the baby Christine Angela Booth on the show, Bones. They’re adorable!
This morning I wanted to share an Etsy page with you! My mother-in-law has been making knitted cocoons for me for a few years now and I recently got her started on hats! The hats are really reasonably priced and I love that they are not only great for a newborn prop, but cute enough and practical enough for your baby to wear around every day.
Here’s the link to her Etsy shop and here are a few of my favorite hats! (She still has the cocoons listed as well.)
It’s Thursday, y’all. Which, I’ve been told is now called Little Friday. This is a thing. People are anticipating the weekend and the party starts on Thursday. So, que up The Office and Friday here we come!!
Did you know that every astronaut that has been into space was a first born? Or that half the American presidents and Nobel Peace Prize winners are first born? Those over-achievers! I would love a statistic on artists and musicians that are middle children and babies. Their free spirits make it easy for them to explore the world in a different way.
I recently wrote a post for Tiny Oranges about my thoughts on birth order. I’m curious to know if you agree. Do you parent your children differently? And how do you try to build their strengths and challenge their weaknesses based on their birth order?
//Here’s a few ‘shares’ from my family photography in Long Beach, Los Angeles and Orange County.
Here’s a little photographer math problem for ya… ice cream + penny boards=smiles. As kids get older, taking pictures falls somewhere around dental work and getting bitten by a wild dog. So, we make it fun! Tera and I brainstormed some ideas for her shoot last fall and came up with a few things that we would space throughout her session to keep those smiles coming. And I think it worked! Three cheers for ice cream and penny board presents!!!
