My niece turned 6 months in February and my sister and I set up a time to take some photos of her, since we were unable to take each month of her first year we thought we could just take photos of her every six months. We had a lot of fun with her, she is the cutest little girl on this planet and is just a ham, she worked it the entire shoot and was so good for the entire shoot.
After a long nine months my sister and brother in law were blessed with a little bundle of joy on August 12, 2012. After waiting int he waiting room for all hours of the day and night we were finally able to meet the little girl we had all been patiently been waiting to meet. I of course snapped a few photos of her within the first hour of her birth and then I snapped a few more the next day when we visited them in the hospital. A week after Jordan was born I also took her newborn photos. Below are all of the photos from her birth to her newborn photos. I love my little niece so much, you will be see so many more photos of her as she slowly grows.
Back in June, yes June my mother and I threw my sister’s baby shower for the arrival of her first born, Jordan Noel Golston. This baby shower went into a lot of detail and took a few months to finally get everything set up. Of course being the photographer I am I had to photograph the entire baby shower. Below are some of the photos I snapped. If anyone has any questions about how we made anything of where we bought some items feel free to ask. I am more than welcome to answer.
As you know, I have been putting together a maternity/newborn project for the past few months and this new mommy is part of it. This post consists of a few photos from her maternity session and a few from Aiden’s newborn session. This little guy is too sweet and was wide awake. Thank you for being so patient and allowing me to capture this special moment if your lives. Keep a look out for my final project coming in about a week!
I have been putting together a maternity/newborn project for the past few months and this new mommy is part of it. I caught her about two weeks before Jaxon actually arrived and man was I lucky I did. This post consists of a few photos from her maternity session and a few from Jaxon’s newborn session. This little guy is two cute and a smile to die for. I see a lot of his dad in him but Keisha says everyone thinks he looks more like her. Thank you for being so patient and allowing me to capture this special moment if your lives. Keep a look out for my final project coming in a few weeks!
On January 21, 2012, Chrissy Winchester gave birth to her second child a beautiful little boy named Derek Donald Winchester, who actually happens to be my tenth cousin on my mother’s side of the family.
I love having a huge family and I am proud to announce that our family is even getting bigger then with adding Derek to the mix, I am going to become an aunt. My sister announced a little over a month ago that she is pregnant and we will soon be adding a new little boy or girl to this crazy family of ours. Make sure you keep a look out for her maternity, newborn, and family portraits this summer.
Back to the Winchester family, on January 27, 2008, Chrissy Winchester gave birth to her first child, Allison Reese Winchester. Allison or Alli for short, is now a proud big sister. As a toddler you can never predict what they will do and Chrissy had asked me that besides just photographing Derek by himself she asked if I could take some of the two kids together. Being a portrait photographer I am always shooting my own family as well. When you have as big of a family as I do you use that to your advantage. Alli is comfortable around me and as a normal toddler your around they will not listen to you every minute of the day. As we were shooting Alli was by her mother’s side the entire time anxious to pose with her new brother. Once it became her time she decided she no longer wanted photos taken of her and began to fuss and not listen. Luckily I got a few photos of them togehter. Next time I have a toddler and a newborn I will make sure I do the sibling/family photos first. Of course the newborn will likely go back to sleep.
Overall it was a great experience, I love photographing newborns and children no matter how hard it can be at times. Make sure you follow along and watch both Derek and Allison grow older. Here are some photos from the session.
