Greenville SC Timeless Studio Baby Mini Session

Meet Graham and Liam who came in for their Greenville SC Timeless Studio Baby Mini Session.  I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive about doing a mini session with a 2 year old and 7 month old.  Two year olds are notorious wild cards.  I am never sure what will happen in the studio.

Spartanburg SC Timeless Studio Baby Mini Session

Graham was the best kind of two year old.  A little shy and reserved, but completely easy to win over with tickling, silly faces, and “driving” his brother into him like a bumper car.  I had an absolute blast playing with Graham and Liam.

And to top it all of Graham was super obedient.  We got him to kiss and cuddle on command.  I had to be quick to click the shutter, but these sibling images are so rare to capture at two.

I just love the playful tenderness in this image.

Liam seems to have the exact opposite personality as his brother.  He was a total ham for the camera.  Smiles and eye contact and even stayed seated most of the session.  But I assure you, he can crawl super fast, too!

We also captured a quick family image.  I love it so much when clients want to be in the frame with their kids.  These images are memories for their children, too. Our children want to remember how we looked and, most of all, how much we loved them from the very beginning.

Cassie and Micah were amazing for their Simple Timeless Studio Maternity Photos Simpsonville SC.

They were my favorite type of client: love to laugh, super laid back, fun, so in love, and beyond excited to meet their sweet baby boy. We had so much fun.

Color or Black and White?  I can’t decide on the following image!

Cassie is one of the smallest mamas that I’ve ever had in the studio.  I was so pleased that this piece in my studio wardrobe fit her with some cleaver use of a safety pins. I stock a wardrobe for mamas from sizes small to 3x.  I want everyone to feel beautiful both during their maternity and their newborn session.  It’s one small thing I can do to make session planning a little easier for you.

As she said, her beautiful skin and dark hair gives Cassie an amazing snow white vibe. I really like this beautiful charcoal dress that she brought with her.  There’s something about timeless clothing that just highlights the emotion in imagery.

I especially love this image and how it truly gives you a beautiful picture of Cassie and Micah’s anticipation and love for their little boy.

Cassie and Micah, I can’t wait to meet your little guy and find out what his name is.  You’re going to be amazing parents and I’m so grateful that I get to witness your love multiply into a family.

I was so excited to have Grace Anne back for her 3 month Baby girl Photos Greenville SC!  Nothing brings me more joy than watching my tiny clients grow up!

For a flashback, here is Grace Anne’s Newborn Video.  Mama wanted an ultra girly newborn session to celebrate. You can see that session blogged here.  But my favorite image is this one of Devon and Grace.  Motherhood looks stunning on Devon and you can see how tiny and protected Grace Anne is in her mama’s arms.

I convinced Devon to jump in just a few images for this session (even though it was more about capturing her little ones). Grace Ann was getting tired at the end of the session and just needed a little snuggle.  And I love these images too.  The joy with which Devon parents shows up so clearly here!

And this smile from Grace Anne totally melted me!

But I’m always a sucker for little details like this protective embrace.

And details like these precious baby toes.

This session I got to meet big brothers Jack and Chris.  It’s a challenge to get a looking at the camera photo for 3 children under three!  We have some fun ones here. So much energy!

And then there’s this tender moment that totally melted me.

Here’s a snapshot of Jack’s slightly shy but hysterically fun personality. Jack’s a little slow to warm up but he’s a heart breaker in the making.

And then there’s this snapshot of Chris’s charm and love of the camera. He’s a little ham!

Finally, we spent the end of the session focusing on documenting Grace Anne’s growth.  I love these smiles in her beautiful Christening gown.

And she didn’t disappoint when we changed her into this hand knit dress from my studio wardrobe.

But I think mama’s and my favorites were smiling in this trench bowl.  Just look at her tiny legs and precious smiles!

Greenville SC Simple Timeless Modern Studio Photographer

I can’t tell you how much fun it is to be the Greenville SC Simple Timeless Modern Studio Photographer for Reagan, Catherine, and their sweet mama Marie.

Simpsonville SC Simple Timeless Modern Studio Portraits

First, you have Reagan who I first met at Catherine’s newborn photography session which you can see here. But there’s a flashback image here below as well.

Classic Newborn with Big Sister Portraits Greenville SC

This girl is an absolute delight!  Reagan is bright, funny, and quirky in all the best six year old ways.  At the beginning of her session, Reagan informed me that she was loving first grade and had become a big girl by not using her fingers for her math.  It made me laugh out loud!

Simpsonville SC Simple Timeless Modern Studio Photographer

Then, as Marie says, there’s the graduate degree baby in between these girls. 😉  But as you can see, it didn’t stop an instant bond for this precious family.  Just look!

Finally, here’s baby Catherine.  She’s an absolute delight with this sweet cheeks.

But no one can make her smile like big sister Reagan who may have been standing behind me on almost all of these images.

As you can see, their bond is just priceless already.  I mean just look at how much they adore each other here!

We took these images around Christmas and I just adore these sister dresses that Reagan picked out.  The nativity skirt on Catherine’s is just gorgeous.  And Reagan’s is a soft knit that is perfect for an active girl.

Marie catapulted herself to favorite client ever when she selected this image for her collection.  This face is hysterical.  I love when clients want to remember all the faces.  Don’t worry, we picked Catherine right up after I took this quick snap!  I don’t like crying babies ither.

We also had some fun at the end of this session creating a Gingerbread image for their Christmas card.  I just love these!

I absolutely adore these Greenville SC Natural Simple Newborn Girl Photos of baby Nalani.  When her parents Tia and Cedric brought Nalani into the studio I literally gasped.

That perfect hair.

Those sweet pouty lips.

Her delicate hands.

Nalani is a sheer beauty. I always find it amazing that each tiny human that comes into the studio is so perfectly created.  It’s almost too much beauty to witness and yet I love this work so much.

These mauve tones are some of my favorite.  Nalani shines in them.

One of the things that I really like to do for my clients is provide the ability to customize their session. Before the session, clients pick the colors, props, and poses that draw them in the most through a detailed client video and questionnaire.  Not every baby loves every pose, but I usually get almost everything on your wish list.Spartanburg SC Natural Simple Newborn Girl Photos

 

Nalani’s parents picked the hands on black pose.  I have yet to do this pose the same way twice and I love it so much.  There’s so much emotion involved in the scale of a baby in her parent’s hands.  But I’ll let you in on a little secret: Nalani wasn’t having this image.  She was getting hungry despite our perfect posing.  I risked it and pulled her paci and took three rapid fire images before she began begging for food loudly.  This was one of those three in between two very grumpy faces.

And now it’s one of my very favorite ever. Sometimes parents leave after a session with a fussy or cluster feeding baby and wonder if I got anything at all. And then the magic happens.  I can’t even decide if I like this better in color or black and white!

And for a bit more scale, her is Nalani with Tia and Cedric.  She was such a tiny little angel.
