What is the best way to get a toddler to stay still for a portrait? That is actually a trick question. Unless they are napping, it is unlikely that a young child will be willing to stay put for long. Luckily, I like movement, I like messy composition, and I like to photograph families just the way they are. I love to create images that are like slices of daily life—something a family can look at years later and say, “Yep, that was definitely us.” I know going into a photo shoot that photographing young children requires physical agility and as well as mental flexibility. My technique is to move quickly and play along or to sit back and let the action unfold—either way my camera and I are ready.

I love this gallery because I’m always in search of clients who appreciate this technique. The Taefi’s definitely fit the bill! They were so comfortable and laid back and allowed me to play creatively while they interacted with the camera and with each other. Their trust in my vision enabled me to artistically tell their family’s story—a story full of love, laughter, and of course a rambunctious toddler,  an incredibly awesome big sister, and adorable little doggies. Thank you Taefi Family for a wonderful afternoon. I hope to capture your family’s beautiful essence again soon.

Talia Ann was born just a few weeks ago to her sweet parents Melissa and Stefan.  She was sleeping when I arrived. Melissa greeted me at the door and their gorgeous labradoodle, Sam, sniffed my gear and checked me out before showing me to the baby’s room. I LOVE photographing newborns, and I LOVE photographing dogs.  When a family calls me and asks, “We’d like to have our dog in some of the pictures, would that be ok?” I am pretty sure they can hear me squeal with delight on the other side. I didn’t know Melissa and Stefan had a dog, so when I rang the door bell and heard the barking I became even more excited than I already was. There is something so special about babies and dogs and having them BOTH in a session is my FAVORITE!!!  I can usually ask adult humans to “relax” or “turn a bit to their left,” but photographing dogs and children is a whole other story.  I have to adjust to them, and I am OK with that.  Sam is still very much a puppy: curious, playful, and always ready to play.  Despite his boisterousness he was incredibly gentle with Talia and highly protective of her as well.  I enjoyed photographing this family because everyone was so relaxed and their love for one another is so genuine.  I felt privileged to capture the tender moments they shared, especially during such a special time in their lives.

Melissa and Stefan, thank you for inviting me into your home.  May the love and joy you share continue to grow.  Welcome to the World, Talia!

Newborn Baby Photographer Charlotte, Bodhi’s First Family Portrait Session

I’ve photographed a fair amount of babies but I have never met a newborn that was as alert, active and curious as Bodhi. This little baby was a joy to photograph because he had so many expressions.  I was also impressed by his older sister, Lucy, the Weimaraner/Chocolate Lab mix.  She was incredibly gentle with the family’s new addition and was always ready to stand in whenever I needed a model.

Christy and Napoleon, I loved capturing your beautiful family with my lens.  Congratulations and I hope you get a nap in soon …
