ONE in a Melon!

Sessions

Yesterday, you got to see the angry bunny smiling, today you get to see her devour a watermelon in celebration of her birthday! This little girl is so petite and so sweet the watermelon was perfect for her, and she absolutely loved it!

Happy Birthday A!

 

 

Farewell, Future Family of Four

Sessions

This week has been crazy! Be prepared for a deluge as I finally catch up on my editing!

Meet our first family! Saturday, I drove out to Château de Seneffe to capture the beauty of one growing family before they move away from Belgium. The light wasn’t right to capture the 18th century Château but we did grab some beautiful moments with this adorable family.

It’s sad to have to say goodbye to such a beautiful family but say goodbye we must. So farewell to you and congratulations on your little one on the way. I wish you safe travels and an easy duty station!

Back to the Abbey, +1

Sessions

The last time we visited Villers Abbey, I worked with the family that didn’t stop! I have to tell you, not many kids do stop… which makes my job fun!

This time we had a family of six (1 more than our last visit to the Abbey) full of littles who were 4, 3, 2, and 0 years of age! This mom and dad team were fantastic and the littles were so sweet. Big sister A knew everything (even things about me!) while the littler sister (keep up!) was very picky about getting her picture taken (though rest assured she did end up sitting pretty and posing for me at the very end). The brothers, N and R were very stoic though I got a few smirks from big brother N and laughs from baby brother R. Okay, now that I’ve confused you all, here are their portraits!

Playing in the Parc

Sessions

While doing my mad dash to Easter, I got out one evening with a new family for their first family pictures in years. We met at the local parc and found out that only mom spoke English though the rest of the family was fluent in multiple other languages! We had a great time anyway exploring the parc and getting to know each other. The littles were so sweet together, often times playing in the sweetest way making it easy to capture some beautiful candid moments. The family was so in love with each other and so excited to get in front of the camera that my job was pretty easy this time around.

Thanks so much to this beautiful family for letting me document their love!

Eggceptional M, back again!

Sessions

Yesterday, I shared M’s Happy Day photos and today begins our Easter celebration! After a quick, Belgian wardrobe change, M began the second half of her photo shoot with renewed energy. She loved the sequin eggs and little flowers and of course, Daddy!

This was one dedicated daddy. As we prepared for the shoot, M’s mommy decided to make the entire day about her and these parents did not skip a beat. M is one treasured little girl and that’s a gift worth more than anything in the world.

The communal parc was gorgeous Saturday and the gorgeous pond was the perfect place to showcase the beauty and personality of Little M. Thank you so much for letting us celebrate with you!

Happy Day and Hot Dog, M is 2!

Sessions

This weekend, I got to work with a gorgeous little family in celebration not only of Easter (so more coming soon) but the big TWO for little M! The camera scared M a few times but that didn’t stop her from yelling Happy Day while we were playing in the park. She got us to sing Happy Birthday quite a few times and even got Daddy to sing Hot Dog for her!

The best part of photography, for me, is meeting families and seeing the way they love and interact with each other. Usually Mommy does the song and dance for laughs but this time Daddy didn’t hesitate to join in and go a step further! It was such a treat to spend time with this gorgeous little family.

I can’t wait to share my first Easter session with you guys next time, stay tuned for more photos of gorgeous little M!
