Traditional Korean Hanbok Portraits in Greenville SC

Connie booked a studio family session for Christmas cards and asked of with could also do Traditional Korean Hanbok portraits in Greenville SC.  I said yes!

Greenville SC Studio Portraits Mommy and Me

I love this repeat client so much.  My first time photographing her was during the birth of Allie, then we did newborn photos for Allie, and one year photos for Allie.  There’s something about being present in your birth room that makes you an instant friend with your photographer.  It helps that I gave Connie head rubs and held her basin when she got sick :)  I adored serving her in that way and love that she treasured the support.

Big sister Abbie has always adored me, but sweet Allie has always been a little unsure of my camera.  This time was no different, so I bribed her with our foster kitten.

Mission smile was successful :)  There’s nothing a foster kitten can’t fix with a two year old!  Typically our cats or fosters are never in the studio, but with mom’s permission I’ll do anything to make a two year old happy!

Meanwhile, Abbie was hamming it up for me all the time.

Her favorite part of this visit to Greenville (these little loves have moved to Nashville) was playing in my studio.  Abbie tells me stories and gets me to tickle her.  She also gives the best hugs!!! I just adore her!

After we took Christmas photos we prepared for our traditional Korean Hanbok portraits.  We had to do a lot of convincing to keep Allie in the jacket portion of the outfit.  But even so, we managed to capture these three beautiful women in the beauty of their heritage and culture.

Christmas Themed Newborn Photos Greenville SC

Meet Noel Juhl who  came for some Christmas Themed Newborn Photos Greenville SC.  Mama Jessica requested a fun Christmas twist based on her name and I was happy to oblige.

We used some Christmas plaid, a few cookies, and some Noel signs from Hobby Lobby to create a little set.  I pulled out a mini Christmas tree too.  I love how it turned out!  Subtle and playful.

But most of our session focused on the timeless and organic style that I’m known for.  Sweet babies, posed simply with simple adornment.

Noel was an extremely curious little girl.  She wanted to watch what I was doing.

This was amazing for so many open eye shots with great eye contact which is super rare in newborn photography.

I loved these images with mommy as Noel drifted off into a light sleep.

I spent some super sweet time soothing and rocking this angel.  And a lot of time giggling when she popped her eyes back open right after I took a shot to make sure I wasn’t doing anything new.Timeless Simpsonville SC Newborn Photographer

 

This yawn was during that time as well as this sweet smile.

And this nest shot was a blink.

After about half an hour of this peek-a-boo game, Noel finally drifted off into complete sleep.  I worked fast so we’d have a good bit of posing variety in case Noel got curious again.

I love Noel’s back wrinkles.  And her little ankles stacked so daintily.

Jessica requested this pose and it’s one of my most requested.  I call it back wrinkles.

This smile made all of that work totally worth it!Simpsonville SC Newborn Photographer

We finished the session with a quick nursing and a backdrop change for this last shot.

And I got close for these sweet detail of Noel’s healing belly button because Jessica told me that she loved how it looked like a cinnamon roll.

18 Month old baby Studio Photographer Greenville SC

I was so pleased to be Sevin’s 18 Month old baby Studio Photographer Greenville SC.

Toddler Studio Photography Greenville SC

Remember Sevin?  She came for newborn photos and I have always loved her precious rosebud lips. And clearly she still has them!

Greer Studio Newborn Baby Photographer

And then she came again for one year photos, and she had a very normal case of separation anxiety.  She loved her mama and she wanted to be with her mama!  But we still got some amazing shots.

Studio One Year Photography Session Greenville SC

I was pleased to have her come back for her 18 month photos, but if I’m honest I was a little scared. I thought 18 months might be harder to photograph than two as she was closer to the separation anxiety stage and also closer to the two year old exploring and no stage.

18 Month old baby Studio Photographer Mauldin SC

I was completely wrong. 18 months was a blast!  She wanted to explore and try the things I asked her to do and was happy as long as mommy was in sight.  It was fantastic!

Sevin had ready smiles and just the right amount of mischief as she moved scarfs and wraps out of props and where she wanted them to be.

She was happy to climb up and sit on various props.

But most of all Sevin’s sweet curious personality shined this session. You could see that she was seriously loved to pieces and this security allowed her to test her boundaries and explore with freedom.  Heather, you’re doing a great job!

Toddler Studio Photography Greer SC

Of course, I pulled Heather into the photos, but Sevin wasn’t having mama photos this time. She just wanted to explore.  I think we should have tried mama photos at the beginning before she felt completely comfortable in the studio.  But I still love these sweet shots.

Dreamy Creamy Newborn Girl Photographer Greer SC

I was so honored to be chosen as sweet Aubree’s Dreamy Creamy Newborn Girl Photographer Greer SC.

Aubree Noelle from Melissa Aldrich on Vimeo.

Aubree was the sweetest tiny little bundle, but her amazing big brother Brayden stole the show at the beginning of our session.

Newborn and Sibling Photography Greenville SC

He just wanted to love and kiss and snuggle his sister.  Truly it was the best beginning sibling relationship I have ever witnessed.  So sweet!

Brayden was a charmer too.  I snapped these two above while “testing my camera” before wrapping his sister up.

Newborn and Sibling Photography Simpsonville SC

Brayden’s tiny hands holding and protecting his sister made me swoon.

Most amazing of all, Aubree smiled so much when her brother was holding on her and loving her.  It was the most precious thing.

I love how babies look so very small in daddy’s hands.

Mauldin SC Family Newborn Photographer

But look at this sweet baby smiling for all of these images with mama too!

Dreamy Creamy Newborn Girl Photographer Mauldin SC

I have never had an open eye smile for a family picture.  Aubree spoiled us with this unicorn of family images.  I still can’t believe it!

Greenville SC Family Newborn Photographer

And after the excitement of family images, we moved onto solo images.  Aubree was a delight here too starting with this eye contact.

Dreamy Creamy Newborn Girl Photographer Greer SC

Eye contact is rare for newborns who are still learning all the complicated eye movements of tracking and focusing. Many times parents request open eye shots, but babies aren’t always looking at the camera.  More often than not babies either look up or look “through” the camera.

Dreamy Creamy Newborn Girl Photographer Greenville SC

These two images are my favorites from this session.  The sweet smile stole the show again!  But the innocent way that babies sleep with their hands over their heads…. perfection.

Finally we finished with this simple nest set.

I couldn’t wait to meet this sweet girls for her Stunning Minimalist Newborn Photos Greenville SC . Josh and Morgan had come in for a maternity session and even then their love for Ellis and each other was apparent.

But their love for Ellis…. I can’t tell you how much they simply adore their angel.

Newborn Photos Greenville SC

I love how small and beautiful she looks in her father’s arms.

Morgan couldn’t stop commenting on how much Ellis’s hair is changing.  Or how much she resembles daddy.

Newborn Photographer Greer SC

So much love!  Ellis was rocked and ooh and awed over and so sweetly loved. Grandma came along for the session and I’m such a sucker for moms.  I want all their children to have images to remember them with: to freeze time with how the love their children so completely.  Grandma let me take this image of her love for sweet Ellis even though she didn’t want to be in front of the lens.

Stunning Minimalist Girl Newborn Photos Mauldin SC

Can we just take a minute to celebrate the beauty of this sweet girl.  From all of her tiny details (that millia on her nose… swoon)…

Stunning Minimalist Girl Newborn Photos Greer SC

… to her sweet cheeks and perfect posing.  Ellis is simply gorgeous.

I can’t resist a sleeping baby with their arms over their heads. And this messy hair as I peeled off her headband makes me grin.

Stunning Minimalist Newborn Photos Greer SC

But these nest images just capture her so perfectly.  A baby who is hope of a beautiful future. Plus that sweet little smile just captures her easy going nature so perfectly.
