{Las Vegas Family Photographer} The P. Family

Can I just start off by saying that this is one of my favorite family sessions ever?  I love everything about it from the beautiful people, to the connections, to the locations, to the colors.  It all came together so well!  Meghan is a portrait photographer in Las Vegas herself, so I was very honored that she chose me to take their first family pictures as a family of 6.  They could not have been any sweeter or more gorgeous – what a wonderful family to work with!  Thank you again, Meghan & Oscar – I cannot wait to see what you do with your images.  I am so happy that you like them!  I look forward to our next shoot. :)

This field of flowers?  Yes, please!  Many thanks go out to my wonderful husband for finding this location for me.  He knows what I like! :) Las-Vegas-Family-Photographer-27 Las-Vegas-Family-Photographer-28 Las-Vegas-Family-Photographer-29 Las-Vegas-Family-Photographer-30 Las-Vegas-Family-Photographer-31 Las-Vegas-Family-Photographer-32

At the end of this session, little Benjamin needed a nursing break.  He made it through a 6 hour round trip car ride and a 3 hour shoot like it was nothing – not a single cry!  I asked mom if she would like a few nursing photos and I am SO happy that she said yes!  This is such a special and fleeting time in the mother/child relationship and I absolutely love capturing this for mothers who are willing to allow me the privilege.  Thank you, Meghan!

{Las Vegas Baby Photographer} Two of My Loves

There are not words enough to describe how much I love this image of  Calista and Gabriel.  I have had people comment that at first, they thought she was his mother.  I even had to do a double take – my sweet girl is looking so grown up!  She just celebrated her 15th birthday this month, in fact.  But the ‘she looks like his mother’ comments do not bother me as she is like a little mother hen in our family – I feel that this is a very appropriate way to depict them.  I love the intimate, simple pose and serious expressions.  I love everything about this!  Unfortunately, someone felt the need to report this photograph to the powers that be on Facebook, and over 1200 likes and nearly 100 comments were erased just like that.  This is the next best thing since Facebook cannot censor what I put on my own blog.  I love this image so much!


And to share where the inspiration for this photo came from, I created a very similar photo of Calista with her new baby sister, Octavia just over 4 years ago.  I am still insanely in love with this photo to this day!  Look how much Calista has grown up in 4 short years – wow!


{Las Vegas Baby Photographer} Snow Baby

I’ve had this picture in my head for months now – Gabriel dressed in a wooly, warm, white knit outfit hamming it up for the camera in a winter paradise.  Only one problem – it hasn’t snowed here this winter!  Being the determined little photographer once I get an idea in my head, we decided to take a day road trip and head to Flagstaff.  Even Flagstaff didn’t have much snow, so we headed all the way up to the ski area.  Luckily, at this high elevation (about 9,200 ft) we found what I was looking for.  Tree branches weighted down by fresh snow fall, and a beautiful winter wonderland.

I knew we’d have to make this quick as no baby is going to put up with the cold temperatures for very long.  We left the heat of the car and I quickly found a nearby spot that was exactly what I was looking for.  I got everything ready and then we brought in Gabriel.  Luckily, he thought this was flat out amazing and was full of happy smiles!  That only lasted about 2 minutes, however.  Once he grew bored of the operation, he decided to make a break for it.  One little fist went into the snow as he attempted to crawl away.  He quickly yanked it back out, looked at it pitifully, and then burst into tears.  That was the end of that!  So – we drove 3 hours for 2 photos.  But the good news is that these photos were TOTALLY worth it to me.  I had a few other ideas in my head that I had wanted to do, but I am thrilled with what I got.  I LOVE these.  My baby is so sweet!  On a side note, doesn’t it seem like I just had him??  How on earth did he get so big?  Slow down, little buddy!
