Amanda and Nathan are from Memphis, Tennessee but are putting down roots here in Cincinnati. I love how they incorporated Tennessee into Noah's nursery. Everything had a story behind it, even the rocking chair is an heirloom. <3 I met with them a few months ago for their maternity session. Where they twirled in a field, sipped cocoa and speculated if they were going to have a boy or a girl. This time they have their baby boy Noah in their hands, but the love is still the same.
Meet little miss Grey.
When Shelly told me that her name was Daphne but they were going to call her Grey my first thought was that she sounded like the lead in a good story. I feel like this collection of photos captures our Grey pretty darn well. Posed with her hand under her chin, legs crossed and a smirk .... and throwin up double middle fingers. Don't worry, you didnt miss that - its the next picture, look closely! :P
I was so excited that the Simciks chose to do a 6 month session for the boys because one of my favorite job perks is that I get to watch my littles grow. Some of their mannerisms are still the same and some of the photos I took are the spitting image from their newborn session. Its bitter sweet to see the comparison already.
In one of the above pictures you can see the octopuses that their grandma knitted because studies have shown that they can help premature babies. They are still a fan of the tentacles, especially eating them, so we definitely had to incorporate those in our session again too . <3
We had such a great time and at the end the boys both fell asleep at the same time. #parentwin !
THROWBACK TO 6 MONTHS AGO
This little man was born on the eve of Christmas eve and was home in time for Christmas, the best gift the Hughes could have asked for. I love that they brought the season into their session. His santa hat and the Christmas lights are perfect. Bonus points that he is adorable, I am in love with his head full of hair and pursed little lips. <3
Erin's and Stephen asked me to come take pictures of their 6 week old sweetheart Adalyn in Erin's parents home in Loveland. She had the sweetest smiles, sleepy yawns and a few smirks too. <3
ALSO LOOK AT THOSE CUTE LITTLE BABY FEETS!!!
Normally I name the blog posts after the newborn using their first name, but I realized that the entire session and in all of our emails we called Barrett by bear. So I have NO idea how to spell it. He just is bear, lol! I love all of the bear details that Amanda included because it made me feel some extra nostalgia for my little - also a bear. <3
I met Amanda and her family at their home in Colerain. This fall we only had two weekends of fall, and I am so glad their session fell on the perfect day. The leaves had just started falling and were LOVELY. Check out the colors.
I was really feeling the black and white edits this session too. So the gallery getting delivered is beyond huge. I think I did almost every image in a b+w too. That never happens.
I am kind of in LOVE with this session. Lila is seriously loved by her older sisters and Nicole's "mama tried" tee spoke to my mama soul.
I was so glad I was able to squeeze this cuties in a little last minute. Sweet Lilah is three weeks old, which I recently learned is not an age that most newborn photographers will shoot - what!? That isnt a problem for my lifestyle sessions though. Instead, I was happy to take advantage of her age to do my first ever outdoor newborn session. Bring me all of the babies <3
When my camera is charging you can find me playing with my little family or trying yummy new foods around the city. I promise to tell horrible jokes and will probably be more awkward than you, but by the end of the day we will all be laughing. Which is how I get the real natural smiles that you see in my portfolio!
