Niece #4 arrived on September 22nd. Emma Ann is a healthy, happy and beautiful baby. I was so excited to get her in front of my camera. I have never taken newborn photos, so this was a totally new experience for me. It takes a village; my two sisters, Mom and I spent the afternoon working together to pose little baby Emma just right. We had a lot of laughs and were happy with the memories we made posing this sweet girl.
On Friday I got a text from my sister that said any ideas for Jagger’s 18 Month photos? As we went back and forth it was decided that an irrigation lane would be the perfect place for this little farm boy to take have his mini-photo sesh! It was a little bit hot Friday evening so naturally, we opened up a gate and let the farm boy do what farm boys do – get a little muddy.
I love doing photo shoots of little ones, esp. on their own when they personality can really shine! If you are interested in getting some photos done of your kiddos, contact me so we can chat.
When one of my sisters asks me to take pictures of their family I’m always excited, but also anxious. They are likely my biggest fans, but they can also be my biggest critics – in the most loving way of course! What I mean is they aren’t afraid to push me to try something different. Surround yourself with people who make you better, right? I learned a lot during this shoot, and I’m so thankful that both of my sisters live close enough that I have the opportunity to take their pictures. So here it is Samuelson Family, I hope you like what you see!
On September 2, 2015, my oldest niece Taylor will turn 6. SIX! Yes, I said six years old. It’s really hard for me to believe this girl started kindergarten this year. This is the perfect time to listen to Taylor Swifts “Never Grow Up”… wait don’t listen to that, you’ll start crying. I about did.
Taylor is full of energy, and sweet dance moves. If you are around her for more than five minutes it’s likely she will ask you to play one of her favorite songs on your phone so she can perform a dance for you. She performed to “Tutu’s and Tennis Shoes” at her dance recital earlier this year. She’s the ringleader of my nieces and nephew. She loves kittens, we have that in common. She’s at an age where she still thinks I’m hilarious and I’m going to take advantage of that for as long as I possibly can!
Our conversation before starting this little photo shoot…
Me: Taylor I like your jewelry!
Taylor: Well we went shopping today, and when we go shopping Mom always wears jewelry, so I said, “MOM I need to wear jewelry today too!”
