The last time I did my nephew, Jackson's photos, he was only 6 months old...Now he is a little over 2 years. So he was LOOONG over due for "aunt photoshoot time", but this time I got to shoot little Levi too. Needless to say, they were so much fun to shoot. Jackson was acting like a little goofball the whole time which kept us all laughing!
I did little Anton's headshots about a year ago. I remember it was such an entertaining shoot, because at just about 6 months old he was busting a gut during the whole photo shoot. Mom said he was like that all the time. I could not believe it! Now come time to shoot with him again, I definitely believe it. He is still the same giggly little boy who just doesn't stop smiling for the camera!
To think that when I first started out doing headshots that I was terrified of taking photos of babies. There was absolutely no way I was going to photograph any child less than 4 years old. I just was worried I would make them cry or I would not be able to get the shots that I wanted...I was totally wrong. I am SO glad that having Charlie really made me rethink the whole baby shoot thing. Baby photo shoots are one of my most favorite kinds of shoots because getting to work with little dolls such as Dallas just makes my heart smile!
Lately, with being almost 8.5 month pregnant, it has been hard doing photo shoots. My feet and back can only handle so much. That is why these baby shoots have been perfect for me. They are short and sweet and filled with a lot of smiles. This little guy, Cohl, was just so sweet and so expressive. He was babbling away the whole shoot. And I will be fortunate enough to shoot him again in a few weeks as long as I don't go into labor before then ;)
Today is a rather exciting day! I opened my email this afternoon to find out one of my favorite little girl smash the cake sessions is being featured on Rustic Baby Chic's blog today! There is just something so neat about seeing your photos somewhere other than your own site and blog. This was such a fun shoot, and believe it or not, it was done in my own garage! ;) You would never know! See here for the feature on Rustic Baby Chic and here for the original post with all the photos!

I told myself the past few weeks that I would hold off on planning shoots for the upcoming weeks since we are in the middle of a big move. But I just can't help myself sometimes when the little kiddos are this cute. I mean, you just can't help but smile at their smiling faces! #bestjobever Meet little Drew and Devin!
