Day in the Life of My Family {February 2014}

I love this project I have started with a few other photography friends. Make sure you check at the end of this post for the link to the rest of the photographers who joined me!

I did my first installment of this last summer, and it has now become a favorite personal project of mine! This was a very busy Friday for us- I thought it would be fun to capture this entire day of my family because my kids joined the ski team this year, and this was a ski day. I only was able to catch up with them to get a few images, but they happened to be trying out the race course so I was thrilled! We started the day with a little Rainbow Looming before school, and some cuddling with the dog. My sweet 7 year old asked me to get in 4 of the photos, and I was close, I made it into 3 of them! My oldest studied a bit for his spelling test before school. I have always loved that morning light we get at the boy’s school, so I was able to capture that, and one of our closest friends happened to pull up behind my at the school drop off, added bonus! She and I and a few other friends hit up a coffee shop during some free morning time. I cherish that time with my friends so much!

Mid morning I headed back to school the volunteer a bit, the class was doing an experiment on what soda does to your teeth (aka a hard boiled egg that had beed soaking overnight in soda and diet soda) ahd here they were seeing if it was possible to brush the brown off with toothpaste. They only got part off! They get out of school at noon so the afternoon was spent at our local ski mountain, I went location scouting with my pup, another selfie and some Olympic ski racing! I am usually not nearly this busy of productive, but it was certainly a very fun day to document!

Twin boys and their big brother! {Flagstaff, AZ twin photographer}

These two cute kiddos came to see me right close to their 1st birthday. They are twins and I could not believe how fun and adorable they were.  Their sweet mom traveled up from Phoenix to see me while visiting family, and luckily Grandmother came to help out too, because they also have a sweet older brother that I photographed as a baby here, seen at the end of this post! Well, we started by getting the twins contained in this crate, and got them giggling by me and mom making some very silly noises. There were for their holiday cards and that’s why they were in their Christmas PJ’s!

Thomas the train was a big hit, as long as he could hold his train, he was a happy camper! Can you see his little tooth sticking out there? I love baby teeth!

And big brother was up for some photos too, I really can’t believe how much he has grown up since I photographed him as a 4 month old a few years ago. Aren’t his blue eyes wonderful?

Proud Parents {Flagstaff Newborn Photography}

This was such a fun and laid back family to hang out with. I love photographing brand new families so much, and it is always extra special with the first baby. They were both so proud and can’t you see it in Dad’s face? I was lucky enough to meet this sweet young lady just a few days after she was born, and capture some sweet parent and child images, some asleep and awakes images and some close up details too.

How cute are those tiny fingers tucked in by her sweet little face?

Can you believe these toes are just a few days old? Such a little work of art, I love the baby details so much…
sweet baby toes
I love the special connection between mom and her brand new baby. And look at the expression we captured on the little one’s face!
mom and baby sweetness
She decided the sleep for a bit to so I was able to capture a few images of the peaceful time when baby’s sleep. I am not even her mom but I could have stared at her all day long. Remember that feeling when you jusy bring home your new baby, as as insanely tired as you really are, don’t you just feel like you could watch them and never stop???
sleepy newborn
Luckily were are also able to get a few photos while she was wide awake, I can’t stand the sweetness all over her face! Look at those sweet bright eyes, precious nose and tiny little lips, too much cuteness!

It really is such a treat and honor to photograph brand new babies and their parents. I know it is a whirlwind in those 1st few days and I am so grateful to the parents who make newborn photos happen in the 1st few weeks of life.

From a fun photography convention {Imaging PPA}

I recently was able to attend my 1st photography in Phoenix, AZ. I was able to listen some wonderful speakers, check out some great photography related products, and meet some wonder friends who I had taken classes with, from and gotten to know over the years! I also got to spend some time with several awesome photographers from right here in Flagstaff, that I do not see often enough! I can’t believe I did not get any of my fun roomie Esther in this series- but we got some fun ones with the iphone:)

Fun family session {flagstaff, az family photographer}

This sweet family took a trip to Scotland not long ago and wanted to capture a few images of the boys in their cute new kilts. They had a wonderful time on their trip seeing the sites, and visiting friends, and loved having a fun souvenir in the form of the kilt to bring home and remember their trip by. We choose a beautiful old Episcopal Church in downtown Flagstaff to do the session. The church has very Flagstaff looking rocks on the outside and great red doors too! We were looking for a building that might look like it could be in Scotland and I think we found it!

Dad was off to the side here making the boys laugh, I love how mom is looking at them…

Once again Dad is being the jokester!! I love this silly family…

Introducing the kilts and the red door! I love those smiles…

Mom even bought a kilt to get in on the action, I love the style of her’s so much!

And I always want to get a photo of just Mom and Dad in there too. We all spend so much time photographing our children and even at professional photography sessions, sometimes Mom and Dad say no thanks, but I’m so glad these two were up for it and their kids will cherish this someday!
