Big sister Lea was turning two, and baby sister Penelope was nearly on her way into the world for this session! It was a beautiful session with one of my favorite families, and this time they had a second pup to add to the mix. Lea was one of my very first Baby’s First Year babies when I opened my studio just before she was born — she was a tiny newborn and is still the most adorably petite little girl! I hope she never grows too big. 🙂 Look for newborn Penelope on the blog soon!

These three beauties are just so, so lovely, aren’t they? Penny is the owner of the amazing interior design shop Eclectic Home on Oak Street. If you haven’t been, go by soon! They have some of the loveliest furnishings, textiles, lamps, etc. I’ve ever seen. Penny’s daughters (and her grand-dog Drew) were such a joy to work with, and her beautifully styled (of course!) home in Uptown was the perfect setting. It was a break from my norm of working with younger babies and kids, and I truly loved it! A gorgeous young woman and a beautiful young lady on the cusp of womanhood = a wonderful session.
Beautiful Sareena and Zaina, twins born a year ago on my birthday, are one year old! They had a lovely party, complete with the Easter Bunny and an Egg Hunt, with all their little friends over to play in April. Big sister Ava was a big help in getting things ready, and the decorations (and food!) were to die for. Family was visiting from all over the world, which made things even more special. Happy Birthday, beautiful Sareena and Zaina!
This was a fantastic session — beautiful setting, beautiful light, and THE MOST COOPERATIVE TWO-YEAR-OLD on the planet. For real. The sweetest little guy who lasted for over an hour of pictures. I was amazed! Little Gentry is now one of my faves, and I adore the image of his silhouette with his fat cheeks and little Buddha belly hanging over his waistband. These are also some of my most favorite family portraits ever! I love this sweet family, and handsome little charmer!
Little Mickey recently came to see me with Mom and Dad in tow for his one year session! He still has the fairest skin, bluest eyes, and blondest hair ever. 🙂 Apparently the ONLY time he makes that funny, pouty face below is at his sessions with me — his parents literally call it his “Olivia face”! We have one from literally every. single. session. in his First Year package. He is a sweet little guy, and I cannot believe he’s a year old already!!
Sweet little William comes from Baton Rouge for his sessions with me, and I’m so happy he does, because LOOK at him!!! He is so funny and expressive. He’s usually pretty pensive at first, and just hangs out for a few minutes, taking it all in. Then he warms up and we all end up in stitches watching him! He dances, makes the funniest surprised face I’ve ever seen on a 1 year old, and keeps a sharp eye out for cars and planes. Such a boy. I love him and his awesome parents!
Grace, Isabel and Caroline are triplets, and they are quite the trio. They are so funny, and each so very different. It was FREEZING on this day, but they’re so busy we didn’t want to move the session date — so we literally had the car pulled up to where we were shooting, and while I did individual shots I made the other two sit in the heated car! I knew noses would start getting red and eyes would be watering after too long, so we moved quickly and the girls cooperated beautifully. They got a little hyped up (as 3 pre-teens usually do) and it was SO FUNNY when Grace, who is always in charge, got her sisters in line by saying, “Be a first-time listener!” while I was arranging them in poses. That was the first time I’d ever heard that, and it’s PERFECT! Their mom says they hear it at school. 🙂 Brilliant!
I love Calvin and Hobbes (who doesn’t?), and since little Rhys here looks so much like Calvin to me, today I had to use this little-boy-quote from the comic strip. Isn’t it so spot on? Is there a parent in the universe who doesn’t feel like their kid was saying this EXACT thing in his head at some point as he banged away at something (while they were praying the noise would stop)? 😉
