Sometimes I have to pinch myself. Is this really what I get to do for work? No, its not easy by any means. But it IS rewarding and it IS such a joy to get to work with these precious little ones at the very start of their lives. Each one is a miracle in and of themselves.
This handsome little guy came in with his beautiful mother and grandmother for his studio newborn photos. His grandmother brought this onesie for him to be photographed in because, even though he was days old. He already has a wonderful story of God’s goodness in his life. One they wanted to document and remember always.
I do it for the snuggles.

After a week of frustrating ‘is it going to rain or not?’ weather, I was so happy I was able to meet up with this family at York Harbor for their family photo session on the beach. It was cloudy and humid, but there was no rain! We headed down to the grassy area near the boat ramp, mostly so that their little guy, Grayson, could run off some 2 year old energy! Oh what I wouldn’t give to have even an ounce of a 2 year olds energy! We managed to coral him for some quick family photos, and boy does he have a 1,000 watt smile!
I could tell that we needed a little break from stationary pictures as evidenced in the image on the left below; Grayson was attempting to make a getaway and so I said to Mom and Dad ‘lets let him run, and I will grab a photo of just you two.’ No sooner had I paired them together to take the picture when Grayson decided he wanted IN. I swear that is always how it it! There is nothing that makes a child want to be in a photo, like telling them that they aren’t in this photo. It makes me laugh every time!I only spent an hour with this family, but just in that time I could tell there was something special about them. This little guy made me laugh (and chase him) so much! 🙂 Once we tired of the grass we headed over to the beach to take some photos of Mom to remember her pregnancy by. They decided not to find out this baby gender, and it was fun to chat about her pregnancy and life in general. We took plenty of breaks to run, run, RUN, and spot boats in the water, and take a nice sit on the soaking wet sand. (well, only one of us did that! 🙂
I feel so lucky that I was able to spend some time with this family before they welcomed their new baby into their home. I feel even luckier that I am able to go and meet their 2 week old baby GIRL (eek!) during their in home Fresh 48 session this week. Thank you for trusting me to capture some memories from your last days as a family of three!
