i feel like i was meant to photograph this sweet family! a year ago, when hartley was just a few days old, rebecca contacted me and wanted to do a newborn session. i was pretty booked at the time, but my gut told me to find a way to make it work and i was able to fit them in that week. after rebecca saw the newborn images that we created, she decided that i was their girl and that we needed to do 6 and 12 month sessions too. they have been some of the best clients and i truly truly enjoy working with them. it is so unbelievably rewarding when a client values your work and shows you that appreciation. after the 6 month session, rebecca sent me the sweetest thank you card with a gift and it just lifted me up more than she will ever know. great clients make this job an absolute joy and i hope that they will call on me for the next big milestone in their lives.
when rebecca told me that she thought we should do the session at her parent’s home, i suggested that she see if the grandparents wanted to be a part of the session. she loved that idea! and we couldn’t leave out the craig’s parents! i’m so glad that everyone was able to come out for that early morning session. i hope that they treasure these images with their grandbaby.
rebecca made hartley’s little rag skirt to match the banner she made for the cake smash and her birthday party. so creative!
the cake smash didn’t last too long….she was NOT a fan of the absolutely adorable cake that rebecca made!
