Oh these two sisters – aren’t they precious? Big sister was excited to see me, happy to be in front of the camera, and eager to hold her new little sister. She’s sooo excited to have a little sister! This sweet newborn was perfect for her entire session and glad to be held. I couldn’t ask for much more! And as an added bonus, her beautiful nursery has lots of fun details and tons of personality. An awesome, perfect session!

It totally does not feel like it’s been a year since these boys were born! It seems like a couple of months, at the most – but here they are, already a year old! It’s even crazier that it’s been nearly 3 years since I photographed their big sister as a newborn! I for one would like time to slow down just a little bit, please.

We had to reschedule once because of rain (and cold) and this session was during those weeks where we barely saw the sun. We really didn’t think the sun would come out on this day at all, but right before the shoot it made a welcome appearance. I’m always glad to have some sun!

These are truly three of the sweetest kids ever. You never know for sure how it’s going to be when you have 3 little ones in front of the camera, since even one is totally unpredictable, but they did great & gave lots of smiles. And they seriously have some of the sweetest little smiles and faces ever!

This is such a sweet, awesome couple and I’m honored that I’ve been able to capture not only their engagement, wedding, maternity, and first baby but also their second adorable little girl as well! It doesn’t seem like nearly 2 years since I met their first daughter, but I guess that’s how time goes. Fortunately she was totally into having her photo taken, although of course she preferred the solo shoots over being in any with her new little sister – but I’m guessing that in a short amount of time they’re going to be really close!

This cutie is six weeks old and already smiling like a pro! He was so much fun to photograph – happy & smiley & super sweet. His big brother wanted in on the action too and even gave out a few hugs. It’s always a nice little bonus when toddlers show an interest in their new sibling when the camera’s around. I’m already looking forward to the next shoot!

December might be my favorite month – it’s just so magical, between all the pretty glowy lights, the smell of fresh pine trees, yummy things you get to bake and/or eat, and the special things you only get to do once a year. This year was extra awesome because it was the first year my girls were really old enough to “get” Christmas, or at least understand that things were a little different than they are the rest of the year. We saw lots of lights, baked & decorated cookies for family & neighbors, got dressed up in red and went to parties, decorated, etc. This was one of the months I’m most thankful that I was able to capture in daily photos – because I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have picked up my camera nearly as much in such a busy (though wonderful) month.

One of my favorite things about taking on this project is all of the photos I’m getting that I would never have taken otherwise. Before I started the 365 project, I rarely picked up my camera if I wasn’t at a shoot or going somewhere special. It’s been so rewarding to have all of these photos of the “mundane,” although it really isn’t. Just the regular day-to-day stuff is so amazing in its own way. November wasn’t a particularly exciting month but I love having all these photos of the everyday things.

Three months can be a tough time for photos, because babies have such small windows of happy & awake time and they get tired quickly, but it’s also such a wonderful time to capture. You’re getting out of that newborn fog and life is getting to be a little more “normal,” and babies are showing more personality and such a fun interest in the world. And the best part (in my opinion) is all those smiles that are finally getting more regular!

I loved getting to capture this sweet girl again in her home. Of course, when I got there she had just fallen asleep (so much for a bit of a routine, right?) but after a short nap and a meal, she was full of smiles and ready for the camera. She was even up for a few outfit changes – which was great because she has some incredibly cute ones!
