It was a rainy afternoon in Downtown Bremerton, but it's always a blast with this crew.
When shooting in new locations, I always get there early to scout out spots. I really wanted these two pictures, but was worried asking a new family to climb up in a window would send them running for the hills. They were game for anything and I am obsessed with the resulting pictures!
I got to work with baby brother for his newborn pictures about a month ago. I was so excited he brought his sisters back for a follow up session. Big sister loved everything about the session. Posing for me, telling her sister to pose, helping me push the button to take pictures - she loved it! Little sister was just there for the fruit snacks and showing me her "little sister" necklace. And brother, he didn't really care what was going on. This sibling session was so much fun and I think momma is going to love having this (crazy) phase of life captured forever.
I think follow up sessions are a wonderful idea for bigger families! Newborn sessions are long, parents are tired and your little one is still trying to figure out life outside of the womb. This session was pretty quick, we had a lot of laughs and baby brother didn't have to go through even more baby yoga and outfit changes. Everyone wins!
I would call her sassy pants, but she "doesn't even have on pants!" You can't even imagine the personality bottled up in this tiny three year old body.
Y'all, my last cake smash in Washington couldn't have been more perfect. When I took my first test shot with the background, I knew this was going to be one of my favorite smashes. The pinwheels, her birthday hat and bubble bath at the end... I don't know if it gets cuter than this.
If you saw the sneak peek, then you already know how her smash went. She loved her cake for about 5 minutes. Then she pulled off her necklace and tutu... and then she was done! Like, basically feel asleep on the floor done.
She is sweet as can be and an excellent backward scooter. She was mostly quiet except when her big brother would crack her up. I've photographed this sweet girl from her first few moments on earth to now, 6 months. Oh, how I'll miss this family.
Rewind a few months. She was so sleepy for her newborn session. We did so many setups!
Rewind a few more days. She had daddy wrapped around her finger before she even opened her eyes.
I did their little brother's newborn session in January. A few weeks later, everyone came back to do a sibling session. Three kids under 3 made things a little crazy, but nothing some fruit snacks and cuddles couldn't fix.
Introducing Miss Ava, 15 days new.
Today, we celebrated this little mermaid turing one!
