It feels like I waited forever to finally be able to meet this little guy!
I was able to sneak in a photo shoot with this family before they made their trek back to Boise!
I've been looking forward to this session for a while.
These guys were all on board when I had the idea of heading out to the Bruneau Sand Dunes, which is about an hour away. Little did we know, the wind was also going to kick our booties.
They didn't complain once!
At one point we had to come up with a new plan to escape the wind for a little bit, and those turned out to be some of my favorite shots.
I have so much love for this family! They have been through SO much over the last couple years. It was so fun to have a photo session on a very happy note - a new baby sister!
If you've been following me for a while, you will have seen them on the blog a few times. I love recreating the same photos every time a new family member joins the family.
When I first started looking through these images, I had intended on grabbing 3 at the most to throw onto Facebook. Well, that didn't happen. I couldn't stop snagging shots that I wanted to share.
Some photographers would walk into a older and darker house and start to panic. I walk into a older and darker house and get so excited because it means we can play with light. I love the challenge of finding little pockets of light in homes like this. We get the perfect combo of dramatic lighting and grain to help tell the story.
It's been so long since I've seen this family, little sister was just a newborn and now she's a big sister! Here are a few of my favorites:
One of the fun things about my job is being able to document growing families. Just a little over 2 years ago I was photographing big brother as a newborn. It is so rewarding seeing the shift in the family dynamic when a new member joins the family.
Big brother was SO sweet with his little brother.
I have been dying to meet this sweet baby girl and I finally did. She was an absolute dream to photograph because she slept the whole time! Meet sweet baby Zoie.
This baby girl has been long awaited! She is so loved and adored by everyone in the family.
I'm a sucker for black and white newborn photos.
We had maternity photos scheduled but little brother decided he wanted to make an early appearance!
