I’m ever so grateful to have been able to work with this family who were one of my very first photo sessions 6 years ago. Michelle is also an old NCHS Alumni like myself and it’s so great to see how we’ve gown since (I won’t say how long ago) we graduated High School.. In all seriousness, I was blown away by Thomas’ beauty. And it was super fun to photograph him with his big Sister, Emily, and Brother Colin. Please welcome, Thomas, just two weeks and 4 days old here. We began by photographing him in a very special knit blanket that was created by his maternal Grandmother. So special!
He was super easy to photograph but almost too big for this beautiful wooden bowl.. He looks so gorgeous, just like a little cherub that flew in all the way from the Renaissance!
Emily and Colin had a special idea to photograph him holding a special lovie
And they each wanted to be close to him
And Hold him. It was very endearing
So many smooches for this beautiful boy. Mom, was so nurturing and beautiful while holding him and comforting him. I couldn’t resist capturing this precious moment
It’s always so neat to be able to take a peek into real life situations. Just cuddling together and enjoying these perfect fleeting moments. Well, they’re almost perfect.. poor dad had to be at work but everyone missed him while he was away. Check out the eye contact that Thomas makes here.
Congratulations to you all.. I wish you all the very best with your new family of 5!
Her name isn’t the only thing that is cute about this little one. She was super relaxed and it was such a pleasure to meet her. I’ve known her mommy since the 5th grade and I’ve been honored to photograph her family now for the last few years. Please welcome, Clementine.
Clementine will have plenty of entertainment with her two bright sisters, Margot and Penny!
Margot was so sweet, she gave me flowers for my hair when I arrived.
We sang songs together and I admired her beautiful expressions
Penny is quite the character. We’ve featured her special Pooh bear in every photo session….
She was so loving and natural.
And then there were 5. Congratulations!!!!
I was completely surprised when my dear friend, Sue, broke the news that she was having another baby and I was blown away and honored when she asked me to come out to Washington, Illinois to photograph her family. I’m always so grateful for the people who have had faith in me and my work. Sue and I worked together as art teachers and she was my very first supporter. She had me photograph her first son. This has been an amazing journey thanks to her and all of you who have supported this adventure. It’s been a dream so I thank you. Best wishes to you and your family, Sue. You are an amazing mother, artist and friend. Meet Hudson….
