I’d like to introduce you to I wonder local Flagstaff business called Fit4Mom Flagstaff that helps moms stay in shape while you are pregnant, and long after your baby is born! There are so many fitness classes to choose from, playgroups, yoga and more. I discovered this wonderful group when I decided to run a big race in Colorado called Imogene, it is a 17mile run hike from Ouray, CO to Telluride, CO. They happened to have a training group at the time and I met some of the most wonderful people there! This was several years ago and I am still friends with this group of girls, and we still run together!

I recently had the chance to photograph the Fit4Baby class and these girl are tough! They are committed to staying healthy and I’m sure have made friends for life since they have so much in common.

I wish I had know about such a wonderful program when I was pregnant and a brand new mom, I love the support you can get when you are with other expectant moms and new moms, and staying in shape while you are at it is ever better! Check out Fit4Moms!

I had so much fun photographing this sweet family! They recently moved into my neighborhood, but I have know the family for a while since the Mom and I were in a running group before. We made it a fast session because I knew the youngest would not be up for a long photo session, but it turns out she probably would have been! These were some super sweet and kind kiddos. I got the big kids to sit facing each other and then I quickly popped the baby in between them. Then as I told the older siblings to love on their little sister, I had the camera ready quickly to get a few different moments…

And don’t you love the classic and timeless clothes Mom pulled together? They have on great clothes in neutral colors with a few pops of pink. And I love the boots on Mom and the older daughter. Like Mom, like daughter!

I love getting a photo with only Mom and Dad. I think with kids this age it is both hard to remember to spend time alone with your spouse and also to ever get in a photo alone with your spouse. Kids want to see the love between their parents, and this always makes for some fun reactions from the kids, who are just out of the shot…

We moved inside to my studio for a few images of just the kids, I love the beautiful light that can be created with indoor light, for some classic images. Can you stand her precious smile here?

Such great expressions! You can tell they had such a blast!

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!

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?

I loved photographing them, thanks for stopping by the blog Fran!

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…

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.
