MATERNITY & NEWBORN
Two things you might already know about us, but if you don't, here they are: we love photographing newborn babies, and we love doing that in their own homes, with their own toys and blankets and people and nurseries. There's just something magical about seeing "where it all begins" for a brand-new life. We were honored to photograph sweet baby Max at his new "crib" (see what I did there? ;-)), and for a guy who was just six days old at his shoot, he definitely brought the personality, eye contact, and blue steel. This session was especially exciting because we did an engagement session for his mom and dad in Ann Arbor a couple of years ago! Welcome to the world, baby Max!
(And to see more of those cozy, in-home newborn sessions, go here).
We finally realized that, since all holiday cards and gifts have been distributed, we can show off our own kids' holiday photo shoot from a few months ago at a top-secret location. A had just turned 7, and B was almost 9. They brought their usual sass - a surprise to no one - yet they were marginally more cooperative than in past years. We're interpreting this as a sign of BIG maturity, hooray! To see more of our work with kids, go here. XOXO
Ahhhhh, winter. We LOVE chillin' at home in our jammies, playing with toys, snuggling in blankets...somehow it just feels like we can be fully ourselves that way. Here are a couple shots of our kids hanging out the day after Christmas. It may seem like it's not a big deal, but I am committed to capturing more tiny moments like these with my own kids in 2017. Can I do the same for you? To learn more, check out our storytelling sessions - true documentary-style family photography. Your home can be great, you are enough, don't worry about things being "perfect." We got this ;-).
I'm not sure we've ever done a "best of" post at the end of the year before, but I have no idea why not because I LOVED this process! Thirty-five sessions filled with love, laughter, joy, spontaneity, and humor. This is why we do what we do! Amazing locations and more importantly, amazing people.
Mark and I offer our heartfelt thanks to our clients for a fabulous 2016, and we look forward to seeing your beautiful faces next year. We wish you a 2017 filled with everything your heart desires! XOXO
Today marks the 9th anniversary of our parenthood :-). Happy 9th birthday to our darling son, our little Christmas Eve baby (who, if he read this, would loudly declare "I am not a baby!"). He cracks us up and fills our hearts with joy.
