George came to me for his newborn portraits so I was delighted that he came back for Timeless Six Month Photos Greenville SC!
His mama’s picked out the cutest outfits from my studio wardrobe and George did not disappoint with in the personality department!
First, we got the classic confused look.
Then, we got a side eye or two.
Finally, George finished with an epic eye roll. I promise that it was directed at me. “Enough with the clicky box thing, crazy lady!” But George’s mamas swear that the eye roll was for them. “Would you please get me out of here and stop embarrassing me by singing those silly songs?”
Either way, George really did enjoy being the focus of all three of our attention. He probably needs to go into acting with all these incredible expressions. Or at the least become the Gerber Baby!
I absolutely adore this 6-7 month age. As George shows, this age has so much personality. Your tiny baby is becoming a little person with opinions and thoughts.
They’re also not yet in the separation anxiety or “stranger danger” stage so they are happy to be posed by me and to smile for me behind the camera.
And finally, most 6-7 months old haven’t yet mastered crawling away from the camera. And if they have… well, I can put them in a prop and there’s no danger of climbing out!
If you’re interested in capturing your baby in the sweet roly poly stage of 6-7 months, I’d love to serve you! Your custom session includes planning, a large studio wardrobe to borrow from, and the ability to pick the images that will go into your digital package.

I love when my newborn clients choose me again as their Greenville SC Cake Smash Photographer. Here’s sweet Samuel at 6 weeks old.
And here is Samuel at one year old. His joy is absolutely contagious!
Samuel is an early walker which made him want to wander around the studio and touch all the things. But it also makes for some hilarious cake fun!
Christine from the lovely Baking Sweet Scents does all of my cakes and I loved how this one turned out!
And these fun paper banners and sweet fairy lights just made our time together that much more fun!
Of course, we just carried the decor over while Samuel took his post cake bath.
I always tell my one year old parents that their kiddos will likely cry through either the cake or the bath. One year olds are developmentally working through separation anxiety (even with a parent in the studio!) and becoming aware of so many new sensory experiences each day. Cake frosting can sometimes cause tears, but so can a bath in an unusual location. Samuel was the rare baby not phased by either new experience.
He loved the bath and I about died when I saw the Santa Claus beard he gave himself. There was just so much enthusiasm!
However, all one year olds tire out pretty fast so by the time the end of our session neared, Samuel was just tired.
But, of course, a few snuggles from mama are the perfect thing to fix a small case of the grumpies.
This mama series is one of my very favorite I’ve ever taken. I’m such a sucker for the relationship between mother and child. The joy and the growth they inspire in each other takes my breath away.

Remember twins Ford and Emerson? These two little loves came for their newborn session.
Jessica requested simple, neutral, and causal for their smash set up. I have to admit, that is my favorite type of cake smash. I love keeping things simple so that the focus remains on your sweet baby.
We grabbed some eucalyptus, some cotton, fresh dahlias, bark plaques, moss, and the cutest twin naked cakes from Baking Sweet Scents (Christine is the best!!!). Add in the adorable outfits from Cora & Violet and we had the perfect simple set.
But even when you have the perfect set, babies may not destroy the cake. And while we made a huge mess and had plenty of nibbles, these two remained pretty clean
However, just like adults, baby twins always think the cake looks better on the other side. I guess they’ll soon learn that all cake is delicious!
After we played in the cake we took some portraits in these sweet monogrammed rompers that mama had got for their party.
I’ll let you in on a little secret: I did a Photoshop trick called a head swap on this photo. It really is hard to get both babies to look and smile at a the same time. One of them was blinking in this image so I used another image for that baby’s face. This type of magic isn’t always possible since the angles have to be the same, but when it is I always use it!
Jessica, you and your husband have done such an amazing job conquering the difficulties of the first year with twins. You’ve done so with grace and a sense of humor intact. So much humor that you picked the twin hulk smash images for your final gallery!!! I love it!
As you go into the year with double the no’s and twice the feet running in opposite directions, may you keep that humor. It’s so hard, but I promise their sweet twin bond and your joy over them will be sweeter each and every year. It’s worth it.

Sweet sisters Elin and Emeri came to the studio for a Studio Timeless Sibling Photo Session Greenville SC! Can these two be any cuter?
I always tell parents that ages 18 month to 3 years old are absolute wild cards in the studio. There’s a lot that parents can do to prep them for a session, but in actually these ages call the shot and Elin was no different!
However, we did coax one smile from Elin.
I had so much fun dressing Elin up in the studio wardrobe for babies that all clients can use.
Interested in scheduling a special photo session to remember your little ones just as they are now? I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a note today!
His mama Jennifer is the sweetest soul and she’s one of my favorite people to come visit the studio. She has this sweet spirit and always wants to know how our family is doing. While I make it a goal to encourage mamas in my studio, Jennifer seems to do a better job that I do.
Together we talked about how seasons of stay-at-home mama-ness, can be so isolating. About how hard it can be to find good friends or even to meet with new friends around baby nap schedules and errands that have to be ran. We talked about how encouragement is so vital to every mom and how date nights are vital to marriages.
So, mama of one in The Baby Year, Jenn and I want you to know that you’re not alone. You’re not alone in the exhaustion or the loneliness. You’re not alone in the feeling neglected. You’re not alone in the wondering how to preserve your marriage.
You’re not alone in the longing for true friends or the longing for time with your true friends. You’re not alone in the simultaneous treasuring of each moment and longing for bedtime and few minutes alone.
Take a risk, mama. Share your heart with another mama, free of judgement and with a sweet open vulnerability. Your new friend is probably the one sitting right next to you playgroup. Or the photographer you’re hanging out with in her studio.
