Ah, little Hazel! She made her momma and I *seriously* work for her shoot, but I have to say, she gave us such adorable and sweet faces and poses that it (the hours of awaked-ness and fussing) was totally worth it! Really, she just wanted to call the shots. Once we caught on and turned her very good-natured momma into the backdrop (by covering said patient momma with the fuzzy fabric) Hazel was perfectly happy to be photographed. See? Sigh. What a cutie pie.
Photographing sweet baby Eleanor was such a lovely experience. Not only is she downright precious, we had the most perfect summer weather so her session was held outdoors. Keeping us company was her adorable – and adoring (for a few moments here and there)- older brother, her lovely mom, and her energetic dog. I had such a great time hanging out with her and her family!
Wesley was so much fun to photograph – I especially couldn’t get over the awesomeness of his hair! I just find it ridiculously cute 🙂 He slept nice and cozy in the vintage suitcase I brought over, and was quite cooperative the whole time. And such a sweet looking little angel, sleeping so peacefully…..
I was lucky enough to run into Vivian’s mom at the Little Fox Shop in East Arlington. Lucky, because not only did I then get to take photos of darling Vivian, but her mom introduced me to two other moms with newborns, whom I also had the opportunity to photograph!
Vivian, whom I photographed at five weeks, was very awake for most of our shoot. Not a problem, though, because man! Look at those gorgeous eyes! She was so much fun to photograph wide awake, and that’s all I thought I was going to get….. until I began to pack up, and then she finally decided to take a snooze. Just as adorable asleep, wouldn’t you say?
Ahhhh, my first baby! Eh-hem. I mean, my first baby to photograph for Willow Baby Studios. The lovely Miss Eloise, daughter of my dear friend Debra, came over and slept away while I photographed her on our bed in our San Francisco apartment. I had no props, no backgrounds, no hats – nothing but my trusty camera. Didn’t matter. Eloise was perfect as can be in even the most ad-hoc photo studio, and lucky for me, her brilliant mom thought to bring the adorable hat she’s wearing in the photo above.
Thank you, Debra & Devin, for bringing forth such a gorgeous first subject for me!
