Sometime in February I started thinking about doing Easter “Mini” Sessions (only 30 minutes) in the studio, but i wanted it to be unique and fun.
Friends & Family quickly suggested: “have Josh dress up in an Easter bunny costume.” << I cannot tell you how many times I heard that.
Fortunately (for him), that was not what I was looking for. What family doesn’t have one of those Easter Bunny photos where the child is screaming and crying, horrified by the man dressed as an oversized rabbit???
So I put out a request on my facebook page… trying to find anyone interested in lending me their bunnies… chicks… lambs… ducks… etc. Quickly I got a response back from a new friend, she was buying baby chicks and I could borrow them! YAY! Success. & I loved the idea.
Quicky, I had alot of interest & response for these sessions and I cannot thank you all enough. Last weekend I had 4 sessions and I think all the kids did great, some more eager than others… but nonetheless we got some great photos! So here are some of my favorites from last weekend:
This weekend I have 5 more sessions with the baby chicks, yay! & I can’t wait to share those on the blog too. Again, thank you to everyone who participated. It was alot of fun and I look forward to doing something similar again next year!
Earlier this week Callie Ann made her way into the studio, 6 days new. She was a big, beautiful baby (born at 9lbs) and extremely calm. I hadn’t had a newborn session in awhile and I was excited. After months of collecting newborn props (mainly thanks to my crafty sister-in-law), watching newborn tutorial videos, & pinning tons of newborn inspiration to my pinterest account – I finally had a sweet, soft, cuddly newborn to photograph!
Congratulations Jen & Joe – Callie Ann is absolutely adorable & gorgeous! Joe, you better start cleaning your guns now… I have a feeling big brother Ty will help! & Thanks for bringing her into the studio and hanging out.
After this session, it was confirmed- I <3 newborn sessions! I recently created and posted “new beginnings” discount bundles and I already had one bundle booked this week. Definitely looking forward to her maternity session next month, followed up with a sweet baby boy newborn in June.
