I had a desire to do an outdoor maternity session for quite sometime. I wanted something in a field with pretty light. The opportunity finally presented itself and I fell in love. It was a happy thing for the session to happen when it did because four short days after these photos were taken, the baby decided to come a wee bit early! I should be doing his newborn session later this week.
We also did a few in the studio as well.
I can’t wait to take the little guy’s photos!

There are always nerves before a session. Always. I love it and embrace it because it means that I care about doing a great job. This session created about ten times the amount of pressure of a normal session. Why? Because I was hired by my sister’s mother-in-law. I was to take family photos of the entire family. These people have seen me grow from a geeky teen to an adult. (A still geeky adult.) I was 18 when my sister first entered into this family. I just turned 30. Those are a lot of years! And to top it all off, my sister is such a big part of my life. I’m a big fan of her.
Here is a little peek. I hope they are happy.

This family session was the result of a thoughtful present. The mom has wanted family photos for a long time now and her son and daughter-in-law gave her a gift certificate for a session with me for Christmas. Isn’t that sweet? I had a lot of fun being able to give her some great photos of her gorgeous family. Look at them all! They were such a pleasure.
I hope you guys enjoy your little sneak peek!

Today I decided to write about my little Paeton. She has been giggling on my lap for the biggest part of today. Well, the part of the day that didn’t involve her lathering up her hands with soap and then rubbing her eyes. Repeatedly. I seemed to have lost the battle that involved being able to get her to understand that she needed to STOP rubbing her eyes so I could clean her up. Poor baby.
Here are some cute little photos of her from a couple of weeks ago.
Serious for a moment.
She likes to wear headbands despite not really having any hair. This is her almost normal way of wearing it. The other ‘Paeton style’ is with the ends resting near her eyes.
Her little grin is the best, is it not? I wished I could have put her in better light to show off those eyes, but I take what I can get with her at this age!!

The other day I put a call out on Twitter that I had found a lovely field of flowers and said that the first ones to contact me could come and play with me! This fantastic family volunteered. Yay!
This little guy will be one in less than two weeks!
I think he is pretty happy about it.
A few of the family shots.
And a few of mom and dad!
Beautiful lady, right?

This little guy was so precious! As the mother of four kiddos who had no hair until they were at least two, I’m always amazed to see babies with hair, especially so young.
Don’t you just want to cuddle him?
Baby lips are so adorable!!
We even got a little grin from him.

This family is special and dear to my heart. My husband has known the daddy of this family since they were rowdy teenage boys. They’ve remained great friends over the years and are now rowdy adult men with kids of their own. This session was in celebration of a recent anniversary. Seven years, I’m pretty sure. I could be wrong, but I think I’m right.
Let me tell you, the twins gave me a run for my money. In fact, as I was chasing one of them, I completely didn’t see some sort of pipe/vent sticking out of the ground. I tripped over it and fell right to the ground. Don’t worry, both my rump and my camera are fine.
I had a really hard time narrowing down the photos for the blog, so here is a huge mesh of them! Enjoy.
After the family shots, we quickly tried to get a few couple shots before we lost the light. We should have worried more about the kids because we took only these quick shots before the kiddos decided that mom and dad were through with photos.
