I recently reconnected with Kari and Jonathan. We met two-and-a-half years ago when they called me to photograph their first daughter Awnya at six months old. And then again when she turned one. This time they invited me back to photograph the newest addition to their family, Beatrice. They have always been wonderful to be around. They relax and pretty much act as if I’m not even there. I did ask them to move around here and there and occasionally interjected some ideas and direction. But for the most part they set the scene for real natural moments to unfold.
I loved watching Awnya crawl on her dad (aka, living jungle gym) and watching the family interact. Last time I saw her she was one, so at three she’s like a totally different person. It was pretty cool. And meeting Beatrice and seeing her in the mix was fascinating. She’s a thinker and has quite a little personality. She also had a lot of energy but after bottle of milk she started to fade and was ready for a nap. Jonathan sat down with her for another bottle and it was sweet watching her drift to sleep.
It was a great lifestyle family session and I can’t wait to see them again. You can look back at our past two sessions below. And I couldn’t help but sneak in a few pictures of Carter (the wonder dog). He’s a very important part of the family.
I first met Cheryl and Corey when they commissioned me to photograph their wedding. We kept in touch here and there and a few years later came Thatcher. He’s got a great personality and a lot of energy. It was fun to document the natural interaction between him and his parents.
Here is a sneak peek of Maya who is just three weeks old. Congratulations to her parents Laura and Nadi. I have known them for many years now and was lucky enough to photograph their Strong Mansion Wedding two summers ago. And now their beautiful baby girl. There will be more pictures to come next week.
Rachel, Chris and daughter Ada recently welcomed a new member to their family. Meet Margaret, or more affectionately know as Maggie. And take a minute to recall the exhilarating feeling of being tossed up in the air by your dad when you were a kid. Ada was lovin’ it.
Here are the last set of photos of big sister Ada almost a year ago at the National Arboretum.
Jay is an unobtrusive documentarian, who insists that the best pictures happen when events unfold naturally. As an individual, Jay is pretty laid back, a demeanor that’s ideal for weddings. Amidst orchestrated chaos, he’s a calming presence.
