Meet Ethan Chase, he is one of my little nephews and every time I kiss his chubby little cheeks I get a bit ooey-gooey inside. On a quick visit to see my brother, sister-in-law, and little Ethan I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos of the little guy. This is their first baby and I have to boast, they are AWESOME parents. You wouldn’t know that they’ve only had 3 months practice! Cameron and I did a shoot a while back for them during their pregnancy, check those out here Ethan Chase!
I couldn’t help but post so many pictures because they were all so cute!! Cameron finally had to help me trim them down because how many pictures with the same expression can you have?! (If you ask me – LOTS). He started to make fun of me as I was processing them and squealing and ‘oochoo-booboo-ing’ to the computer screen. I admit, I was a bit ridiculous. I am sure you will probably see lots of the little guys on my blog, along with ALL of my adorable nephews and niece!!
Since I have started to photograph babies and children it is only natural to move in to pregnancy as well. Rex and Molly are the neatest people! I had the pleasure of meeting Rex about a year ago while being in a business group together. They own California Wellness Center and have been doing great since starting the business a few years back. They signed up for my ‘New Life Series’ which includes a sequence of 3 shoots as well as a compilation album from every session. Since this was 1 of 3, it was great to spend time with them and learn how down to earth they are. They have decided to have a home birth and find out the sex of the baby on the birth day. I give them credit….I don’t know if I could wait that long; birthdays and Christmas are already torture enough. Rex & Molly were naturals in front of the camera and I cannot wait to meet their little one sometime soon.
Here I am finally blogging and I feel like I already have so much to blog about! This is Wyatt; he is one of my sisters 4 kids! A little over a year ago my husband and I were just dating and I had to pull teeth to get him to come to the hospital to meet his ‘possible’ nephew. He says his ‘uncertainty’ was all an act: well maybe…..he was a thespian in High School. Anyhow, it was last year that I grabbed Cameron’s camera for the first time and attempted to capture…..well anything. I have to say, I was a bit nervous and at the same time excited. I absolutely LOVE kids and I loved seeing my new nephew through the camera. It was fun to allow myself to be creative and express something I love in a different way. Check out Cameron’s blog
to read about Wyatt. Here are some of my shots from that day.
Nine-ish months after that day I had married my best friend Cameron, became business partners, and jumped willingly onto our wonderfully blind rollercoaster of life. It has been WILD. Wyatt being my first photography subject was also my first ‘experimental shoot’. I made Cameron take the other 3 kids while my sister and I stayed at the house; I was free to experiment all I wanted. I was pretty nervous still being in the prenatal stages of photography but….I LOVED it! I was being creative in a new way and capturing something I love so much. Cameron is an awesome teacher and assisted me in the processing. I am excited to see where I can go from here and what new and creative things are ahead!
This look is after he threw a doll called ‘Mad Cameron’ (It’s a doll of Van Gough that looked like Cameron when he used to have his beard) Hmmm maybe Wyatt is jealous Cameron and I are married….I know how much he loves me!!
