I have been looking SO forward to taking newborn photos for Joe and Karen since their maternity shoot (which also happens to be one of my favorite shoots to date). They knew they were having a girl, but kept the name secret – and isn’t Eden Elizabeth one of the greatest names you’ve heard? Baby Eden lives up to her name by being serious and cute all at the same time. I loved putting together this preview – Joe and Karen, I hope you love it too!
Baby Drew is here! He joined sister Peyton about 2.5 weeks ago and is beautiful and fun just like his sister! Ashley had some great rugs, baskets and even a Tonka Truck for Justin, so we had a great time getting to know Baby Drew!
David and I were really excited to get pictures of Keturah and her kids – Maggie (16), Ben (14), Lydia (6) and Hank (4) were so much fun. The little ones loved posing for the camera – even though it was 100 degrees outside (and felt like 107)! Everyone pulled it together and looked great for the pictures – and Keturah even brought water balloons to cool down with at the end.
David and I went down to Indianapolis for a concert and got to stay with Tricia, Eric and the girls again! We also were able to go to a beautiful Indy park and take some more pictures. Moira (4.5 months) has grown so much since her newborn photos and Liesel (2 years on Tuesday!) is just as silly and wonderful as ever! She makes lots of great faces – but as you will see, she definitely gets them from her mother 😉 Taking pictures with them is always a blast, and I am looking forward to many more photoshoots in the future!
Check out this picture – the first one is this year, the one below is from when Luke was 10 days old (courtesy of Nicole Ladonne Photography) – I can’t believe how big they are getting!
Laura and Monty asked us to take pictures of the girls again six months after their last photoshoot to see how the girls have changed over time. It is so fun to see Lucy (turns 4 in March!) and Jules (turns 1 the day after Lucy’s birthday!) grow up. My favorite part is seeing them begin to interact as sisters. I’m looking forward to taking their pictures again in the future to see how quickly they change. We were even able to get a few pictures of Monty and Laura together. Check out the painting on the wall of the picture of the two of them – Monty painted that! Another awesome part was that my new camera came right before the photoshoot, so David was able to second shoot with me – yay! You’ll see many of his shots below.
This blog post is so special to me that I have been sitting here for a while trying to figure out what to say, so I will just start from the beginning. In 6th grade, I told Katie I was getting a pool and she should come over and swim in it that summer (see really old – and slightly embarrassing – picture). Sixteen years later, we are still best friends, even though we live many states apart. I cannot put into words the joy I have to be visiting Katie, Brian, and their new son Josiah James (JJ) in Vermont this week. JJ is just a month old and is already the sweetest little boy in the whole world. I can’t wait to watch him grow up – and am so grateful for technology so I can! Katie, Brian and JJ – I hope you like your pictures! With love, Sarah
If you think these photos look similar to another recent photoshoot – you’re right! Deanna and Laura are identical twin sisters – with daughters almost identical ages. When Laura emailed me about doing family portraits for Deanna, I was so happy – it was such a joy to shoot Laura’s family that I knew Deanna’s would be no different. And I was completely right – Rick, Deanna, Bella and Liv were a dream to photograph. Not only are they a beautiful family, but they have a beautiful home. I enjoyed my time there so much and am especially thankful to David for helping out with the girls during some of the shots!
