I spent a cozy winter morning with my friends Cyleigh and Andrew and their adorable blue-eyed baby boy. Since this photo shoot, Braden learned to sit up all my himself for long periods of time--all while bopping away to his favorite tunes, roll over (and over) and add quite a few solid foods to his regular menu. He is such a happy boy!
Alexa definitely plays the older sister role, and she's so smart. She spelled my name right on her first try with no help from anyone! Alexa is full of good ideas, a monkey on the playground and a goofball.
Addie is a little quieter and wants to do what her big sister is doing. She has an independent streak too. Addie's sweet, full of energy and loves chocolate ice cream.
I dare you NOT to smile while looking through these photos. :)
Over the last year, Carolyn has become such a great friend to me. This girl is one of those people who everyone instantly likes. She's warm and personable and also witty and interesting. She has so many cool life stories, AND she's a fellow photographer … all the way in Iowa City! I think it speaks to Carolyn's character that she has friends all over the globe (and I mean ALL over! These two are seasoned travelers).
Carolyn and Alex are from Cleveland and asked me to do a film photo session with them while they were home for a week. Carolyn and I have sort of explored film together (although truthfully, she's helped me way more than I've helped her!), and I was seriously so honored--and really, really excited--to do an entire session with my Mamiya. I love way too many of these to narrow them down, so get ready for a long blog post. These two are really good looking, so it shouldn't be too difficult to look through all these photos. :)
