Back in March, I got to attend the sweetest little tea party with 3 of the cutest cousins ever. How fun would it be to have a little girl the same age as your sister’s daughters?! And how great is this tea party idea? Their Grandma arranged it all, and the fun little details were so darn adorable. Add in that little kitten and it was like a movie. At the end, we went and played outside for a bit, and the very last photo is one of my faaaaavorites!
Sweet little Maverick turned one back in March and we celebrated with semi trucks and cake! I loved all his cute little faces and his reaction to his cake was priceless!
We did a studio session back in March for Vivian’s 6-month milestone and I love how these turned out! Her cute little tongue sticking out, her beautiful outfits handmade by her mom and grandma, and big brother even jumped in a few for some sweet little sibling photos!
Crew turned 1 back in February but we had to reschedule his session a few times and finally got it done in March. I just love this semi truck location for photos with little boys! So much color even in the winter months and you know those little boys are loving it! It’s always so much fun seeing this family, their little guys are just the best!!
We finished out baby sister’s one year of sessions out at the homestead with a morning session just after sunrise. It was a little chilly that morning back in March so after family photos, we finished up in the studio. Big sister was hamming it up, she’s just the best. So fun to see their different personalities develop, and it was a fun year watching little sis grow!
The last time I photographed this family, there were less brothers, and the ones who were there were a lot shorter! So fun to see them again and to take a few senior photos for the biggest brother, out here at the homestead. So crazy, we used the wheat field next to my house and as you can see in these first photos, it was just beginning to grow. They just finished harvest in July, which makes me realize just how behind on blogging I am! Enjoy these crazy brothers!
In February, we had our semi-annual photo session with the Mirakian family! I have lost count of how many years it’s been that I’ve been photographing these boys in my studio, but we plan to continue the tradition til they’re 18! Always a chaotic and fun time with all the outfit changes and convincing the boys to gimme the REAL smiles! 🙂
I haven’t completely won Claire over yet with my charm and exuberant personality (lol)…but if we keep hanging out, I’m convinced I can! Her parents tell me that she’s got a more serious personality anyway, so they were happy even though we didn’t get too many smiles out of her. We had gotten some frost the day of their February session and it made the homestead look so pretty! We grabbed a couple family photos outside to take advantage of that, and then finished up in the studio! This is the sweetest family ever, it’s been fun getting to know them throughout Claire’s first year!
Three months is a notoriously hard age to photograph babies…they’re not the sleepy, squishy newborns anymore, but they’re not yet sitting up. However, sweet little Walt made it so fun! He and his family came to visit me back in January, and I totally love the sibling shots we got. He also flashed us his super handsome smile quite a few times. The funniest part was trying to fit him into that little baby bed in the black and white photo, he was totally not into it ha!
Sweet Murphy Quinn is one! I hadn’t met this family before this session, but it was love at first sight, ha! They are the sweetest people and I loved hearing their story and the story of this sweet girl. Her momma came with all kinds of cute props and a couple cute outfits, and we spent our time celebrating Murphy! Her smile just makes you melt!
