You know you are in a photographer home when the doggies that greet you are named "Bokeh" and "ISO"!! Nanette and Karl are photographers in the Naples area, their work is just beautiful! I met Nanette on Instagram and was so excited to meet up with her in real life! I feel so honored and just over the moon happy that I was invited into their home during this special time in their lives. Their playful little boy, Teddy, is full of curiosity and so adorable with his big blue eyes and blonde curls. He seems to be ready for this big brother thing! These days leading up to the new baby are full of playful moments, complete with tickles and snuggles for Teddy and his fur buddies while they await the arrival of this little newcomer. The sweetest of anticipations!
I got the film scans back from Mary's maternity session and I am obsessed! Oh, how much I love these!! I am so happy we decided to do this, even though it was cold and overcast. Mary, you look stunning. Molly and Fran are so adorable. Film is amazing and is somehow always worth the wait. I'm so excited to meet this baby girl! I really hope she arrives before we move!!!
This baby is about to makes it's debut, like any minute. Melanie is super pregnant and trying to speed things along. Literally, I just saw her dancing at a wedding this weekend! But we are still waiting for baby. I can hardly wait to meet this little nugget! Any day, now, little one!!!
I tried using some film during our time at the beach and had a few shots that were actually keepers so that was a nice surprise! I guess we'll call it a hybrid session. Ha! Below are a few of my favorites from Melanie's beautiful beach maternity session!
Sweet baby James is enjoying his last few days as an only child. He is soooo cute. I want to squeeeeze those chunky cheeks and bottle up all his giggles. He was so happy playing in the leaves! James was cracking us up with his graceful attempts at getting back in his wagon gone wrong when he finally just belly flopped in. It got the job done! Kelly is basically ready to pop with this new baby due any day!! Can't wait to meet the newest member of their family!
Where's the baby?!
We had such a great weekend visiting with our cousins from Boston! All of the kids got along so well and everyone had a blast. It's hard to believe it's the end of summer and everyone is about to start school. These 4 guys are hysterical. They are big into basketball and introduced me to a dance move called dabbin...also their favorite photo pose :)
Me and the boys before baby girl arrives. Which basically turned into just me at 30 weeks, since all the boys wanted to do was chase seagulls and go on the playground. I can't really blame them! Thank you so much to Mary O'Sullivan for these beautiful memories!
Mary at 35 weeks and her adorable daughter, Molly. Little did we know the temperature would drop 15 degrees from the parking lot at Woodlawn, to the beach and we would also encounter 35mph winds. Kind of loving the care-free, messy hair look!
Kelly and Pete are such an awesome couple and I can't even wait to meet their baby boy this March!!
All of our little guys will be running wild through South Buffalo someday! :)
My friend Abby is also into photography, her company is Barefoot Soul. We thought it would be cool to try some maternity photos around Tifft Nature Preserve because the tall grass was always intriguing. Of course it was in the 20's and super windy the one day we could both get babysitters at the same time! We decided to roll with it and embrace the weather... she sent me a text an hour later that she was still shivering but I think we accomplished what we wanted and got some beautiful shots! Abby, I hope I did ya proud and captured a little of that hippie spirit :) I can't wait to meet little Trudy Mae in January! She's definitely going to be one strong little girl and live up to her name after running around with our wild guys. Congratulations Songin Family!
