I absolutely loved going to this family’s home to photograph their new little addition, Ainsley. Every now and then you come across people who you immediately know are “good” people. This is one of those families. I was welcomed into their home and they totally gave me the freedom to do, move or try anything I wanted. Despite having a three year old and a brand new baby, they were so laid back and happy. Seriously, smiles the whole time:) Even the big brother was happy and well behaved!
I shot this session right after Christmas so they Christmas tree was still up. I grabbed a wooden bowl and a beautiful red blanket the family had laying around their house and it made for perfect festive images. Ainsley was the perfect Christmas present! While Summer fed Ainsley in the middle of the session, I stepped outside to photograph Jason and their three year old son Cato. They received matching capes for Christmas and they were running around the yard together. The masks definitely make the costume complete:)
Once back inside, we headed upstairs to the nursery. I love crocheted blankets, especially if they are handmade by a family member. We were able to snap a few photos of Ainsley on the blanket her grandmother had crocheted. It matched perfectly to her sweet pink dress! We snapped some mother/daughter and father/daughter images before heading to the bedroom to get some family photos on the bed. The last two black and white images are some of my favorites. It really shows how sweet the family is. Especially big brother, Cato:)
Congratulations to Summer, Jason and Cato on the beautiful new addition to your family! I loved spending time photographing your family and getting to know you!
