Ok I have to admit I have never ran out of gas in my entire life until the morning of Hudson’s portfolio session!! I was literally down the street and my car just puttered out! How professional I thought. First porfolio session of my career and I had to call the mom for a ride! I called, I confessed and she rushed over to me assuring me that this has happened to her before. Thank you for an understanding mama!! Thankfully the actual session didn’t start out as rocky as the intial meeting! Hudson was well, a PRO! To mom’s relief he was a natural and did not complain once!!
This blue outfit really made his eyes pop!
At this point he was really hamming it up and I was loving it!!
We took a trip over to the train. It didn’t have great light but it sure made Hudson light up!
Such the natural poser!
We took a little break to have some juice and play with a slinky that he didn’t quite know how to use so he just swung it around!! He loved it!
At this point is when I realized that Hudson and I were best friends and he got a kick out of it everytime I called him that!! I don’t think he agreed!
Can we say J Crew model!!
This little stud was so many kinds of fun that I cannot wait until next time he needs more portfolio shots!!
It has been about a month since my computer crashed and I was left hopeless to ever catching up on edits! Thankfully with several backups I did not loose any currect work just current edits!! Since I have been back up in running I have been able to finish up this lovely famiy’s matenrity and newborn session. Before miss Cate was born in December this sweet family and I captured some beautiful maternity shots at park near the Gibson’s house. It was a sweet moment watching Cate’s sisters cozy in next to Natalie to get closer that sweet (little) baby bump!!
I mean really is there even a baby in there!
It was such a gorgeous fall day. If I remember correctly we had just dodged the rain.
I loved watching the interaction between this sweet little family. This little baby was about to be their whole world and you could just see the joy and excitement in each one of their eyes.
Baby Cate arrived on on December 7th and just a few days later I was getting the chance to hang out for the day and get to know her sweet little self. Well she slept most of the time which was music to my ears but she rarely was startled and barely cried.
The girls were so gentle with their little sister. I think I hogged her a little too long because they kept asking when they got to hold her again! They were so excited to just be in her presence. Everytime I looked up they were peering around the backdrop watching her contently.
She will definitelynever be lacking in the hugs and kisses department!
You have to have a little touch of christmas for this December baby.
Her sweet little details- I wonder what features are mommy’s and which ones are daddy’s?
She just slept so well for us we were able to get so many different setups. Even though I provide all the props and outfits we will need I love pulling in things from the home. Mom had an outfit that someone had given her so we used that in one setup and then we did a few in her crib with some stuffed toys gramma had made her as well as some beautiful paper flowers that were soon going up on the wall a friend had made. You can already tell that not only is this little lady adored by her family but by her village of friends as well!
