Catching up on blogging this session with my friend Anne’s new bundle. I got to do a combination family/maternity/2-year old session with her family in the fall, and we’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Graham! Thanks to Danielle Kastendieck for the amazing cocoon, he was so snuggly and happy in that thing! I love his little toes sticking out! Visit Danielle’s Etsy shop for more info!
My son got to meet his new little cousin Keaton when he visited from Northwest Iowa for his very first session at just 9 days old. He was able to demonstrate (several times) that his digestive system was working just fine. I’ve never had a newborn that hasn’t gone at least once, though, so par for the course! Other than that he was a champ, a great sleeper, and despite the adorable chubbiness, quite flexible. Welcome Keaton!
Met up at a beautiful neighborhood West of Omaha for this one, lots of great trees, a waterfall, pond, winding roads… Will definitely have to keep it in my bag of tricks for future sessions! We fought the wind in some of the open areas, but all in all, the weather has been so cooperative this fall! It’s fun photographing older kids, too, so different to have subjects who can follow instructions. Have to find that balance between being too ‘picky’ and keeping it natural.
Also got to pull out my 24mm lens for the circle shot at the end, love love love that one!
