This was the Dammen twins first photo session with us. They are at that oh so cute, but oh so tricky to photograph age of about 3-4 months. Personality is starting to really come out, smiles are pretty easy to get, tummy time is hopefully improving, so it can be an adorable age for pictures. The main problem we run into is stamina. Usually babies this age are crying and totally worn out after about 30 minutes. So I fly and I mean fly through these set ups. Once I get a couple of cute smiles we move on. It’s like a cardio workout for me. I have found that is the only way to get a bunch of variety is to hustle through. Just make sure if you are doing a 3 or 4 month session in a studio or outdoors that the family has completely realistic expectations of how short the shooting window can be. When we do lifestyle sessions in people’s homes we can usually get a good hour out of the babies, this is always a good option for this age.
Aren’t they darling?!?!
And most of the time we squeeze in a few family shots at sessions if mom and dad are up for it! So glad that they were!
I did the Bowersock twin’s newborn session which was insanely cute and their six month session was greatness as well! Big sister was there to get in a few photos and the twins could not have been more relaxed and happy.
Their mom always picks the cutest color schemes!
We have been using these painted boards a lot for our studio shoots. They look really clean and nice and I love the look of the real wood!
The Tran family is always a blast! Reese is 9 months now and they wanted an outdoor shoot this time. They chose one of my favorite spots and Reese did great! My only complaint: the hot and sweaty ridiculous summer heat that day!
Sweet Noah is 1! We had a simple cake smash set up with tons of balloons and it is one of my favorite boy set ups we have done. Big sister Grace jumped in while Noah was changing for a few individual shots and she was a complete ham as usual. She keeps me laughing at all of their sessions.
Big Gunner! That outfit was just perfect! He was smiley and a real trooper to deal with all the outfit changes and pictures at his age! Can’t wait to see him again in a few months!
