One of my favorite things is getting to photograph families not once, but multiple times, as they grow and evolve into legacies….
A new little fresh baby around the holidays the ultimate Christmas gift. Coming from a religious background, newborn babies around that time of year pull at my heartstrings in a special kind of way. This little one was born a few days ahead of schedule (Christmas Day), and actually interrupted the decorating of their Christmas tree! When I got to their home, the top half of the tree had lights, and the bottom half was bare. It was a happy reminder of reality, the chaos, and the re-prioritized joy that a new life brings.
Erin was about 3 months pregnant in these photos, which was not the original “plan”, and let me know ahead of time that she was expecting. These photos are a great example of how, through simple posing and styling, you can either maximize or hide any curves or pregnancy.
Megan said this to me afterwards:
You made me feel really pretty, Anna… I haven’t felt that in a long time. I’m serious, I cried. You really blew my mind! I love my photos, I will cherish them always.
What on earth is better than 4 generations of women getting together to celebrate the life and legacy of their matriarch?
Absolutely nothing. Nothing could be better.
I would love to book YOU for a custom, stylish family portrait in my studio. Own a family portrait that your family treasures for the years to come, or just a portrait to put on your Christmas card to get you through the year ahead.
Finally, I have a working space out of my home that I can use for studio work! Naturally, I wanted to test out the space, so I grabbed this little creampuff heartthrob for a few shots
