Another local photographer welcomed me into her home for a lifestyle maternity session with her little boy and her little bump. I love these types of sessions! It’s such an honor to try and capture some of the everyday beauty that goes on in a family’s home. We read books, we played on mom and dad’s bed, we shared Skittles, we danced around, peered out the window … and got pictures of all the smiles and quiet moments too. Thank you so much for having me, Erin!
I had the privilege of photographing this little smiley guy’s entrance into the world back in May. His sweet face just had me smiling this entire session. Colby’s mom and dad asked if we could do his 6-month session at the tree farm where they purchase their Christmas tree each year. After our successful day of tree farm holiday minis a few weeks prior to this, I was totally game! I love family sessions at tree farms! This tree farm was located in Auburn and is called Honey Tree Farms. It was such a sweet location and perfect for Colby’s half-year, holiday photo memories!

Okay. so this session was just simply ADORABLE. These sweet kids’ mommy and I danced together years ago (Go Hawks!) and it was so fun to meet her family and take their holiday photos for them. I hadn’t seen her since we last danced together but we watched each other grow our families via (what else?) Facebook. Kristin had a little blonde girl first and then followed up with a little blonde boy … just like me! The time of day we had their session was just beautiful. The sun was setting, the light was golden and we just had a blast. This was our last session of our holiday minis day and it felt so great to wrap up the successful day with such a perfect evening.
This was the second time I got to photograph the adorable K. family during an AKP mini session weekend. Just look at their fun outfits! Last year we photographed them at one of our fall mini session weekends; this year they signed up to participate in our first-ever holiday mini session day. They are a fun family to work with … lots of smiles and lots of cute glances at each other throughout the session. Thank you for being part of our special holiday weekend, K. family!
