Baby Daxton’s Photoshoot

Baby Daxton’s Photoshoot

3 weeks ago, my little nephew Daxton was born–and last night I finally got the opportunity to do his newborn photoshoot! This was the first photoshoot i’ve taken where I’ve given a lot of thought as to which props to use… and I think they help tell the story about Daxton and his family and background a little bit. He is such a SWEET little guy. I kept giggling as I was taking these pictures because he just looked so darn sweet in all of them! It was also great taking a couple of family photos for my brother and sister in law too…. she is 5 lbs lighter than she was before getting pregnant (3 weeks after having him!) That’s pretty amazing, and i’m totally jealous. So here are a few of my fave’s…

Gemma’s 2nd Birthday Photoshoot

Gemma’s 2nd Birthday Photoshoot

This weekend was my daughter’s 2nd birthday! I tried her birthday dress on her the night before, and she looked so beautiful in it, I just had to take her outside and snap a few pics  (in the orchard surrounding our home). I know I just did a photoshoot of her recently, so I almost didn’t post these–but they were just too CUTE to pass up. Next up, I REALLY have to get a photoshoot of my adorable 3 year old, it’s been a while! Anyway, I am in love with these… some of my fave. shots ever, and they were so fun to take!

Last week I did my first ever Bridal Photoshoot, for my friend Tara. We planned to do them on saturday night–but the wind was SO crazy we had to postpone them t’ill sunday. Sunday was an absolutely PERFECT day in every way, until about an hour before the shoot, when it got super windy and overcast. I was tempted to postpone the shoot again… but with her wedding only a few days away, we just had to get them done! The wind actually ended up working a little in my favor though–as it blew her dress out and made it look really pretty, and her hair had a romantic ‘windswept look’. The overcast sun did NOT work well in my favor however, as it went away way too fast, and gave us only 45 minutes to do the entire shoot. I didn’t get to take half the pictures I wanted to at the mansion we were at, and we didn’t even make it to the sunflower field!

Kristens Special Delivery Photoshoot

Kristens Special Delivery Photoshoot

This weekend we had a family reunion up here in Mattawa, and since it was the last time I would see my sister in law Kristen for a while, she asked if I would take her maternity pictures. It’s always a “fun” experience taking pictures for family. The girls tend to be SUPER great, comfortable, co-operative, and extremely photogenic… whereas the boys don’t want to behave or co-operate for two seconds! I could have dedicated a whole Blog post to my brother in law Alex and his REALLY crazy poses…. but i’ll spare you, since most were highly inappropriate! [i'm just playing]. Kind of.

Gemma’s Little Girl Photoshoot

Gemma’s Little Girl Photoshoot

Photos have become a big part of my life over the past few months. Not only do I practice food photography on a daily basis as I document my favorite recipes, but I have also had the opportunity to take engagement pictures, family photos, new born pics, and maternity photos for family, friends and people here in Mattawa–and I have loved every minute!
