These images placed in the top 100 of the 2017 Shoot and Share Contest, one of the world’s largest photography contests (over 350,000 images were submitted this year). Here’s a shout out to the Last Family, who made it all possible with their adorable 6 kiddos!
The Jesrani family flew in from Texas to celebrate one great event after another…Jaya’s first birthday, and her aunt’s engagement. The weather turned out to be great, and every member of the family was so…happy. Its such a simple word but really, how wonderful is it to be around sincerely happy people? And what a breeze it is to photograph them! I didn’t cue them once. All these shots were taken while they did what came naturally. So naturally…these images radiate the color happy 🙂
Why did I not do this for all of my kids on their first birthdays?! Lauren poured herself into creating the perfect cake smash photo session for baby Harper (you can see all the details in these images), and totally knocked it out of the park. This is just the coolest family. Super talented, down-to-earth, loving and just all around amazing folks.
This was one of my all time favorite newborn shoots. Not only were the new parents super cool (sharing jokes, German chocolate and homemade almond butter with me), but their newborn baby boy was awake almost the entire time and CONTENT! He has the most stunning eyes (just like his mommy!) and such a mature face for a newborn. What a nice change of pace to capture those traits of his while he marveled at his surrounds, which were covered in beautiful Indian decor. I might have to buy some of their rugs to borrow as props again! 🙂
