What a joy it was to get together with these four to take their pictures. You couldn’t have asked for a nicer day or a nicer family! I’ve known Courtney for a while now, through work, and had heard a lot of stories about her family – especially about her two kids, Luke and Kate. It was awesome to finally meet them. Luke was quite the character and always had a smile on his face; Kate was okay with the pictures to start, but then decided it was time to start exploring and didn’t want to pose anymore! Hopefully you enjoy the pictures that resulted – a beautiful Texas afternoon and a beautiful Texas family!
Our good friends Trent and Amanda asked if we would be willing to do a newborn photography shoot for their beautiful daughter Emerson. We happily obliged – not only is it a joy to take pictures of wonderful, new life, Katie and I really enjoy spending time with the Thompsons and their older daugher, Kinley. Also, I was really eager to try out my new lens. It was my first time working with an infant, so I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. But Amanda was super helpful – she even sent me some picture ideas beforehand and links to a few other blogs with beneficial pointers for baby photography). It took Emerson a little while to calm down, but once she fell back to sleep, the shoot was a breeze. Emerson is 16 days old today – we hope you enjoy her photos.
