Stormy gets a sibling {Maternity Photos in Rochester MN}

August 30, 2011

I knew this would be a great maternity session when Kristin asked if she could bring Stormy, their first baby. Now, Stormy is a little Pomeranian who travels around in a fancy red soft-sided dog carrier and has gorgeous brown eyes. She tired of posing for portraits after a few minutes, so mom and dad tucked her into her carrier with a chewy bone, and the rest of us trampled through high grass and braved grasshoppers and other strange bugs, just to bring you the images I’m sharing below.

I still can’t believe she was only 10 days out from her due date when we did this session. Truly beautiful!

BJ: In Motion | 18 Months {Rochester MN Baby and Family Photographer}

I knew when this little man ran into my arms as soon as I stepped inside his home that this session was going to be special. What better way to begin a portrait session than with a squeezy hug from a toddler with a mop of red curls? This little man and his parents are special to me. I know I say that about a lot of my clients, but I was there when mom and dad *became* mom and dad. I supported this family through pregnancy and birth as their doula, then documented their precious newborn (it took me two tries).

18 months is such a fun and trying age. So independent, yet dependent. Running, but still falling. Talking, but thumb-sucking. Cuddling, then escaping.

Mr. BJ, keep your parents on their toes. Always make them guess what you’re going to do next. And never, ever, ever forget how much they love you and what they went through to bring you here.

Love and kisses, sweet boy!

I know. I’m a bad blogger. I need to do better keeping up with my sessions! I’ve got a few to post in the next week or so. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek from my latest maternity session. Mom was gorgeous and just 10 days away from her due date.
