Maggie is one year old! Let me tell you, one is a challenging age to photograph. They are mobile and curious, they aren’t bribe-able yet, and when they aren’t into it there is no asking them to fake it. So instead of trying to make a one year old something that they are not, instead we just went with it. We let Maggie be curious (she loved the camera- as in wanting to hold it), explore new places, smell and sometimes taste new things.
Molly is 6 months old! Her sweet family found me through a referral and my work at the Salvation Army… her parents and big sister have been in front of my camera a few times now for family shoots and a wedding that half the family was in. I was so excited to meet Molly, the newest addition to a REALLY awesome family!
I got a sweet email from the matriarch of this beautiful family, Judy, asking that make her dreams come true and get all of her kids and grandkids in one picture with her and her husband. It took quite the scheduling to get this crowd together… so when we realized that it was still going to be around 100 degrees when we met up at 6:30pm there as some question of what we should do, but we decided to go through with it. Everyone handled it amazingly well!!
