I first met darling Anna a year and a half ago for her own six-month portraits, and was so excited to hear that I would be meeting her baby sister Molly for the same reason.  It’s always such a joy when clients come back and I can see how much they’ve grown, individually and as a family.  Such an adorable family!

Molly and Anna, thank you for coming to see me!  It was so great to see you again!

Joy is what I feel every time William comes to see me.  I think his newborn session is still one of my favorites.  We could have finished his 9-month session in 10 minutes, he was so, so happy.  His one-year session was equally joyful–what a blessing he must be to his wonderful parents!  In preparing for his session, his mom and I talked about doing the traditional cake smash as a part of the session, but as the day approached, she informed me that he didn’t really like cake.  What does he like?  Broccoli.  So, of course, we had to do my first ever 1st birthday broccoli smash!  So very fun.

William, one year:

William, you can come see me anytime.  I promise to keep the broccoli on hand for when you do:).

For a while it seemed as though this was the session that was not to be.  Originally scheduled for last fall and then rescheduled twice this spring due to New York’s unpredictable weather, we finally made it out.  I had already met sweet baby Sawyer last summer when she came for her newborn session, and I just fell in love with her and her gorgeous mama.  I was so excited to meet and work with the rest of her family.  I was a little bit nervous because poor baby Sawyer woke up out of sorts the day before and is usually in bed by the time our session started, but she did so, so well.  Melissa knew just how to keep everything fun and low-key for her kids so we could just hang out together and capture the love that emanates from this amazing family.  We talked before the session about how all the stress of a family portrait session should take place before the session ever starts.  The hardest part is just choosing the clothing and getting everyone ready.  Once the session starts, though, it’s time to have fun–and that’s what we did.

Melissa, I am so glad everything finally worked out–I had such a blast with your family!  The perfect evening.

That’s what my little inner two-year old self feels like shouting every time I finish a session with Miss Rhiannon.  She is always such a delight and the epitome of cuteness every time I see her and we have so much fun together.  I could say more, but honestly, I think the images speak for themselves:).

Blowing kisses, MWAH!

Rhiannon, you are growing into such a delightful and lovely little girl–come and play again soon, okay?  Mwah!

I know, I know, I said I was only taking maternity, newborn, and baby sessions this year.  I do have a couple of sessions over the next little bit that were requested as long ago as last spring, and despite the fact that there’s already a bit of a waddle to my pregnant step, I am so grateful for the chance to get outside and shoot again.  What can I say about this amazing family?  Just that I love them to pieces.  Over the past few years, our families have become such good friends and I know my family is going to be so sad when they leave for their next adventure.  On top of that, I have had the extreme pleasure of watching this family grow over the years, from their stunning mama, to sweet baby girl here, here, and here, and even big brother and sister.

We decided to shoot at one of my favorite locations–Lindsey’s Orchard in the midst of apple blossom season.  Scheduling these sessions can be so tricky since the flowers only last a few days and springtime weather in New York is unpredictable at best.  Usually, I just have to stalk to orchard and when I see flowers, we set up the session for the next day or two.  It worked out perfectly this year.  So we headed out for some fun:).

I don’t know what Dad said here, but I am guessing it was pretty good:).
