photo shoot ~ isla’s nine month portraits

12 Isla 9 Months13 Isla 9 MonthsMiss Isla was super adorable for her nine month old photo session, as she has been since I started photographing her as a newborn. Her big brother, Callum, is also an old pro in front of my lens, as I’ve photographed him since he was born also. Apparently and unfortunately, I’ve been terrible about blogging all my sessions over the past two years, so I only have Callum’s newborn portraits to link back to. I really want to stay on top of sharing my sessions for the rest of this year! Let’s see if I can do it, okay? :)

Anyway, as you can imagine, photographing a nine month old and a two year old together has its challenges. You should have seen me and their parents, Jennifer & Paul, trying so hard for some smiles! Ha. Isla wasn’t really having it, and Callum wasn’t very into sitting still that day {or any day ever, probably, if you asked his mom}. I loooove the pix we got, though. It’s such a true capture of their life at this stage. And they’re such a cool/cute family, it’s hard to not love pix of them. :)02 Isla 9 MonthsOkay, so fun little side story: Jennifer is friends with the mother {also named Jennifer :)} from the shoot I posted yesterday, and that’s how I came to do baby Charlotte’s newborn portraits. And this Jennifer is also friends with my friend Jenna, who I’ve done a ton of shoots for over the years. {I just did Jenna’s son’s birthday party last week, which I’ll be posting soon. And here are a few photos from her beautiful wedding I photographed several years back.} Jenna recommended me to Jennifer for Callum’s newborn portraits. All of this to say: I love my clients and I love how I get new clients from word of mouth! For some reason, it means even more to me when it’s young moms who are trusting me to document them and their sweet children and families. When they hire me again, year after year, it’s awesome and reassuring that my work is valid and valuable to them. And when they recommend me to their friends, it’s such a huge compliment! I’m just very grateful! Thanks, Jenna and Jennifer! :)03 Isla 9 MonthsI adore Isla’s pose here!08 Isla 9 Months21 Isla 9 MonthsOh my word, these melt my heart!23 Isla 9 MonthsHaha!
