The littlest Kellems girl turned 9 months, so we went to great-grandma’s farm to celebrate the event. Guess what mom and dad’s favorite football team is????
This darling little diva was a pleasure to photograph, just to see what she would do next. I didn’t get a lot of the traditional gummy grin pictures, but the variety of her expressions is just adorable.
This is Aiden at 9 months at his grampa’s house! We played in the leaves (even tasted a few) and played with mom. Then grampa got his restoration project out of the garage for some very cool sittin on the engine photos. Someday maybe he will get to drive grampa’s special car! And finally, because his outfit was just too cute, a holiday themed set with a sleigh and a furry friend! Enjoy the gummy grins and beauty that is a nine month old!
I love photographing 6 month old babies; they sit up and have lots of expression and are just too cute for words. Hadley with her beautiful big eyes was no exception! She brought her mom and dad along, so we got some beautiful family photos and a couple of extras with dad. Since mom is gorgeous and all done up with her hair and makeup, we did some contemporary portraits of her as well! Such a fun family to work with! Hair and makeup by Sarah Kellems!
Here are just a few photos from Aiden’s 4 month pictures. We got to go outside and play!
It doesn’t seem like a year ago that we were photographing Mimi as a newborn, but it has indeed. Now she is no longer baby, she is moving into the great realm of toddler and all of the joys and gray hair that come with it! Happy Birthday baby girl!!!
Meet Aiden. This darling little guy is one month old and not in the least bit thrilled to be having his picture taken. So, we went to plan b which means mom becomes the baby poser and gets her photo taken as well. Fortunately mom is just gorgeous, so we had beautiful mom, adorable but slightly crabby baby and some sweet little outfits. I had a blast!
This is Amelia, or Mimi as her mom calls her, at 9 months. What could be more fun than baby pictures under the Christmas tree?
Jackson is one of those fun ” birthday at Christmas” babies, so we took the liberty of photographing his birthday a little early this year! One year olds are always a great unknown when it comes to a photoshoot…Will they fuss? Will they cry? Will they heave cupcake across the room? Thankfully, Jack is a laid back kind of baby who was quite happy to play with the cars and rocking horse. It was a toss up over eating the cupcake or the candle, but ultimately the cupcake won out!
Actually this portrait sitting was closer to 7 months, but they are still adorable! This age, when they are sitting and starting to babble, is such a hoot! We had the bonus of being able to photograph her in her Halloween costume. Isn’t she just too cute? And I love how mom and dad totally focus on her in the family photo. Who wants to look at a silly old photographer when you can look at a beautiful baby girl?
I just love shooting these darling little girls! We went to Lake of the Woods Botanical Gardens so we would have lots of room to run with super girl capes, chase bubbles, watch fish and have a little picnic. I wish I had half the energy of the two older girls and Ava is such a little doll! The love between these siblings is so obvious and so real…..I am constantly in awe. Take a look for yourself and let me know what you think!
Baby pictures are a wonderful study of facial expression in their truest form. They have not yet learned to smile for the camera, or to yell “cheese” over and over again. Conversely, they often express their feelings by screaming at the top of their lungs with displeasure at the strange woman with the black box pointed at them. Amelia alternated between cooing and “talking” with her mom and expressing her displeasure with me. I just love the range of expressions and emotions we captured during her 3 month portrait sitting!
