Every little girl needs a beautiful pink bow in her hair at some point in her life. And sometimes that little pink bow is all the color you need in the photograph when the baby and is beautiful and peaceful as little Tatum is in this picture. It’s not a new concept, but I still love a strategically painted photograph.
Please join me in welcoming Rockstar Baby Kristen to the stage. It’s been several months since her arrival. Mom and Dad (Dedra & Kevin) are both doing great and settling into life with baby number 2. I’ve implied I can’t wait for a number 3 and 4, so I can photograph them…but Dedra gave me a look that made it clear I better talk to my other clients about that.
When I visited with the family just a few weeks ago to deliver their Memories In Motion™ DVD mom and dad were just praying for 4 consecutive hours of night time sleeping. Big brother Caleb on the other hand can sleep through anything and was very well rested.
As I’m sure most of you know, photographing babies is one of my three greatest loves when it comes to photography. I always say that I specialize in photographing Love, Life and Passion. Babies are the embodiment of the first two and the result of the third. Yep, I said that last part. We are all grown folks and know that it’s true. I hope you enjoy the images of baby Kristen as much as I enjoyed creating them.
Baby Madison is a beautiful addition to the Little Angels collection. She really was absolutely perfect and already so full of personality. It’s so much fun photographing little rock star babies that are happy to put on a great show for the camera.
Baby Caleb arrived only a few weeks ago and he is absolutely beautiful! I haven’t quite figured out who he looks like between mom and dad, but I definitely know that he’s an adorable little fella and so well behaved. I have affectionately been deemed uncle and I couldn’t be prouder of this little fella. Mom and dad are both doing well and adjusting nicely to parenthood. Based on our newborn photo session, it is clear that Caleb is ready to be a star. He was so excited about all of the attention that even after his feeding he refused to go to sleep. Instead he posed for us, gave us the occasional smile (no, it wasn’t gas…it was a smile darn it!) and was on his best behavior.
We started off with a slightly sleep Caleb, but as you can see he quickly woke up gave us an awesome baby smile and was ready for his closeups!
No matter how many baby portrait sessions I do, it never ceases to amaze me just how incredibly little this rockstar angels are. Caleb’s had is too small to fully grab daddy’s finger and 16 years from now he’ll probably be taller than dad and able to beat dad on the court. If that’s not a miracle, I don’t know what is.
Next Caleb decided to REALLY show off by rolling over for the very first time. It was a bit of a struggle at first, but once he got going, he was really moving and just look at the joy in him once he finally made it onto his back. By the time he was done, the room was chanting Caleb…Caleb…Caleb! Like I said, welcome to the stage you little Rockstar Angel.
And a session with a baby boy wouldn’t be complete without a kiss from papa. Man, this little guy is in great hands and I can’t wait to see the type of man he becomes.
