Maddie & Ryder {urban sibling session}

I love, love, love what I’m about to share with you!  I have been working with this family for quite some time now.  They keep up with their kiddos photos more than any family I know!  We not only meet for milestones, but also for holidays and special occasions like dance recitals.  My only complaint is that I have NEVER been able to convince mom and dad to jump into a photo!  At this particular session I really tried to get a family photo, but was shot down, again!  Mom has promised me that eventually they will!

They chose my favorite destination for this photo session, North Bank Park.  Not only are these kids crazy cute, but how can you not love that skyline behind them?!?  Miss Maddie always has a fabulous dress on and is always willing to show me a “Maddie pose” or one of her dance poses.  Ryder needs a little more work to get a smile, but I never force smiles from him, because his serious face is adorable.  Check out his shoes in the photos!  So cute!

Typically, when I meet families here, mom and dad try very hard to keep the kids out of the water, but not this family!  At the end of the session, the kids were allowed to play in the water and I absolutely love the photos that came from it!  They were so cute running around chasing the water as it shot up into the air.  Especially, when the realized they could put their feet over the holes to stop the water.

I’m having some withdraw from not seeing this family in a couple months!  They had to cancel their last session due to sickness, so we won’t meet again until the weather breaks in either spring or summer.  I always look forward to it though!

Mr. Ellis {8 days}

I’m pleased to introduce Mr. Ellis to the world!  This cutie is the second child of one of my high school friends.  We were close to missing the 10 day window that I like to photograph newborns in, because our schedules didn’t coordinate.  Since she lives close to me, I just stopped over one day and did an impromptu session.  Of course, Ellis was sound asleep until I started posing him.  Finally, we decided to take him outside in hopes that the heat would put him back to sleep.  Tadaa!!  The heat did the trick and he fell right to sleep making those precious belly poses easy to get.  Unfortunately, his big brother wasn’t as fond of the photo shoot, but we still got a really cute one of them together.

Miss Amelia {4 days}

I’m pleased to introduce Miss Amelia to the world!  She is the precious baby girl of our friends, Dan and Kelly.  You should recognize this family from previous blog posts, because I photograph their oldest, Preston.

When we visited them at the hospital Amelia was one day old, and I almost wished I had brought some stuff to photograph her there, because she was so sleepy and squishy.  At only four days old though, she did pretty awesome!  We used my make-shift studio,which is the sun room of our home for the photos.  She fought me every time I placed her on her belly, but once I got her comfy there, we could have left her there all day.  Most of my props were too big for tiny Amelia.  No worries though, they live right down the road from us, so I can photograph her anytime I want!

We were so proud of big brother who posed so preciously with his little sister.  Mom and dad were right beside me during those shots just in case Preston decided he was done modeling with his sister!  Safety is always priority!

I often think how crazy it is that so many of our friends that we’ve known for 10+ years are now families of four.  Just another reality of how old I actually am!
