I’ve been so swamped with editing such beautiful weddings this summer, that I’ve really been slacking on the blogging front and since I love to share, I really need to get back at it. So coming up next week (I’m completely going to be blogging out of order since I still have some weddings from last year and earlier this year to share) I’ll have Erin + Chris’s beautiful day (and their engagement session and rehearsal dinner- such a fun 3 days I spent with them) at Hildene!
It really does seem like it was just yesterday that I was capturing Amy + Ashton’s wedding. They had such a fun and amazing day at Camp Scully with their family and friends.
Four years later, I was invited back into their lives to capture the next chapter in their life together…….parenthood! Sweet Baby H decided that he wasn’t in the mood to sleep, which I totally get since he was doing such an awesome job at night…….why not stay up all day and check thing out!
Even before I arrived at their house, I knew that little Mr. H would have the most stylish room around bases solely on how awesome his mom and dad did decorating for their wedding. He’s certain to be the best little dressed dude around!
If you haven’t previously read, I’ve switched to lifestyle newborn sessions which focus more on what’s happening in the moment. If your little one decides to stay awake, we capture what happens in the moment and hope that we get a few photos with shut eye. It also means capturing things as they happen. Sitting the in chair soothing your little one. Snuggling on bed with your new family. Changing a diaper. It’s less stressful and it fits more with my overall style. It’s basically more me.
See…….he closed his eyes for a bit! We won’t mention that I tried to cram as many photos as possible into this sleepy eyed moment!!
Such a pleasure seeing the two of you again, Amy and Ashton and what an honor it was to meet your little man!!
All of my wedding couples receive free sessions for life. Whether it’s an anniversary session, a newborn session, family session, etc, they never have to pay a session fee again and they automatically receive 30% off of all of my products!
Photos are meant to be enjoyed. They’re meant to bring you back to a moment in time, to remember. When Lillian was smaller, I could often be found right behind her with my camera in hand to capture every moment. As the years went on, she became more resistant and would tell me to put my camera away. It’s often the way I feel when I see a bunch of phones and cameras during a wedding ceremony! Sometimes, taking a photo with your heart is more important. But sometimes, when you don’t have a camera with you, you grab that one thing that is always by your side……your phone. I have a love/hate relationship with my phone. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not much of a phone talker. Never have been and probably never will be. But the one thing my phone has going for it, is that Lillian almost never complains when I do take it out to take a photo. I use Instagram more as a personal photo diary, capturing things as they happen, in both the good and the bad light. My Instagram feed isn’t perfect. But neither is life. The one negative thing about photos on a phone (and a computer for that matter), is that you can’t truly enjoy them as much as if they were in print. Thankfully, Social Print Studio is around to make it nice and easy to print my photos in a super cute way……
And yes, that’s a photo taken with my phone…..and yes, it’s not perfect! So many beautiful memories that we’ll be able to remember for a lifetime because we printed them. So get those photos off of your computer and phone…..NOW!!!
