Are you loving this chilly weather? It’s finally feeling more like Christmas when I can bundle up my kids with thick jackets and cozy scarfs.

While others are busy with shopping and party planning, Christmas is a time of rest and peace at our house. As we’re concluding 2016 in less than a month, why don’t we take a moment to pause and make a What Brings You Joy List? For me, it’s family, kids, good health, great clients… and last but not least, the gift of Jesus.

What brings you more joy than expecting the arrival of your second baby at Christmas? I’m in love with this family’s holiday session. Every image is portraying the expecting joy of a new life, a new beginning. This is going to be their most memorable Christmas and I can’t be more excited for them!

How about you? What brings you joy this Christmas?

Have you been thinking about investing in a portrait for your baby? Don’t miss out my December Special as I’m offering 10% off all newborn and baby sessions.

Shooting another photographer’s child is both exciting and stressful. This lovely baby girl’s daddy is a wedding photographer so when mommy approached me for her baby’s sitter session, I was thrilled! In fact, Zena is the third child and I’m amazed that her parents still care enough to invest in professional photography service for her.

During our pre-session consultation, mom indicated that she loves neutral and soft pink. So she brought this lovely pink dress to my studio, and I provided all the other props for the session. Zena was such a joy with work with. She literally giggled throughout the whole session, and her cheeks…just blew me away! Who can resist the smile of a chubby baby?

This year I’m especially thankful for getting to know so many beautiful families and meeting their sweet little ones. Our conversations always revolve around whether the child has had mom’s lovely hair or dad’s beautiful blue eyes. However, with this family, I’d say that this sweet little guy has probably inherited his “photogenicity” from both parents.

As a baby photographer, I usually have a few tricks in my pocket to trigger some natural laughs in my little clients. But with this 8-month-old boy, all I had to do was clicking my camera, and he would literally smile at every shutter sound.

Not only was my little buddy so easy to photograph, but his parents were also camera-ready! These were only the first few pictures we took during their Mini Holiday Sessions and they looked so perfect already. I hope you will enjoy this gorgeous gallery and Happy Thanksgiving!

As this busy season is about to conclude, I’ll be slowly blogging all the lovely families I’ve met in the last few weeks…

I was a little nervous when this gorgeous mom booked her Mini Holiday Session and indicated that her two preteen sons would be joining. Because, you know, my specialized niche is in newborn, baby, and toddler photography, and it’d be my first try to ignite the natural connection in this age group.

But, to my surprise,  despite their stylish looks, these two young men still had a childish heart and their conversation was… so silly! I gave very minimal directions on posing and their candid shots were loaded with fun and love. Our session was a breeze and I’m happy with how authentic and joyful their Christmas portraits turned out to be!

After their session, each son held one of mom’s arms, giggling along their way back home. What a blessing it is to have such a loving relationship with your preteens.
