I think we'd all agree...the words "baby" and "love" just go together. There is so much to love about babies. Especially these 2 girls -- man are they cute! Between Abby's curls and Olivia biting her toes, my heart definitely skipped a beat. I first photographed these 2 sisters during Olivia's newborn session. Olivia was 10 days old and Abby had just turned 2. Fast forward 6 months, and we have this most recent session. I'm so glad that Sarah and Jason asked me to come back to capture their precious girls as they grow. Here are a few favorites as I'm editing. Enjoy!
This was taken over the summer. Olivia at 10 days old. PRECIOUS!!!
And here she is now at 6 months. Even more precious!
This is Olivia's beautiful big sister Abby. I am in love with her curls!
At the beginning of the session, I focused on the girls...
I was able to capture a bunch of shots of them individually...love this!
I got their sweet profiles...
But I had yet to get a good shot of them TOGETHER. Then I eyed my small basket.
How do you get a 2-year old to sit so closely to her 6-month old baby sister AND kiss her?? You put them in the small basket TOGETHER and then reward her with a lollipop. :)
Beautiful family! I adore this portrait and think all my clients should have one like this. Meaning with everyone looking at the camera.
Though I also want my clients to have one like this -- meaning just caught in a moment.
I love capturing the way you can make her giggle when you turn her upside down.
Or the way she can make you giggle when she tries to kiss your nose. Every day "ordinary" moments are often my favorite.
Once inside, I focused on Olivia for a little bit. It was "unofficially" her 6-month session, so I made sure to capture some images that really show her personality.
And if these next 2 don't capture it I don't know what does.
One of my favorite baby images ever. Eyelashes, toes and chub in one shot -- LOVE it.
Who is (was) excited for Christmas?
Abby! Look at that smile!
At the end we did some pictures in their Christmas dresses. Olivia's first Christmas = so special.
Does it get any sweeter?
Sarah and Jason, thanks for asking me to come back for updated pictures as your girls grow. It is so much fun to "work" with your awesome Hokie family! Hugs! ~Kris
