Fall is my favorite season and Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I pretty much smile the entire month of October. Seeing the leaves change, going to fall festivals, decorating the porch with a ton of autumn decor, and planning out costumes is just so much fun for me. My fall porch is something I take a lot of pride in, so last year I took photos of Seth, Gracey and Ash out there.
This year, I had a fall set up in the studio for a few sessions, and if you follow my Instagram, you’ll probably have seen my stories about how incredibly messy the bales of hay were! I took some photos of Seth up there, and then we moved out to the porch, taking those messy hay bales with us! Gracey joined us at the end too!
Here are my favorites from that day!
Then a few days later, I took Gracey up in the studio for her close up in her Halloween costume! Again, if you follow my Instagram (or if you know just how crazy I am), it won’t be a surprise to you that I bought a little something to match her while we go trick or treating with Seth and for handing out Halloween candy!
Here is Seth in his actual Halloween costume as an Ewok from Star Wars. It was so hilarious watching him walk around with the oversized belly, he looked like a big teddy bear. It was so sweet. I love this little boy so much.
Follow along with me on Instagram for more Seth and Gracey :) and Happy Halloween!
Are you tired of posts entitled "Seth's First ________"? Then this isn't the blog for you :D
Aunt Laura will never get tired of pulling her photogenic little nephew into the studio at every opportunity. Especially during his first year, I just can't help but document every little moment I can. Let's be honest, even after he's one, I'm probably not going to stop. Apologies in advance.
I realized recently that of all the pets I've photographed, I've never had the occasion to take photos of a rabbit for a client, so I had to improvise and make Seth my little bunny rabbit this year. 9 months is a really fun age to photograph because at this point, Seth can sit up really well and he loves to hold things, so he'll pretty much take any prop that I hand him. The only thing that was difficult to deal with was the fact that he recently started to crawl, so keeping him still was a little bit of an issue! When he got to the point where he was really raring to go, I popped him into a little wooden crate and that did the trick!
I'm so excited to see Seth enjoy his first Easter. I know for a fact he's going to be getting at least 3 Easter baskets, which I know is overkill, but our family is just too obsessed with him. We had a couple of years of tough times before he came along and even after, so this beautiful smiling baby is the apple of everyone's eye. I just can't help but be happy when I see this boy smile.
Here's our bunny boy.
Happy Easter, everyone!
It’s been a little bit of a crazy time over here at Laura Pea Photography! I try to dedicate a blog post to most sessions I do, but this V-Day season got away from me. If you follow along on my Instagram (@laurapeaphotography), you’ll have seen all these photos but I decided to do a roundup post of the sessions I did for Valentine’s Day this year for those that follow my blog!
First up is my nephew Seth! This is his first Valentine’s Day and I was so excited to get him in the studio to use some of the props I’ve been accumulating over the years! He’s so used to the click of my camera and the flash of my lights, so he did an amazing job!
Next is Juliette and Owen! I photographed them at two of the pet portrait programs I did at the Islip Public Library and then I was honored to photograph Juliette’s 1st birthday photos! They came back for her 18 month photos to surprise their dad whose birthday is the day before Valentine’s Day. They had so much fun playing around with the props I have in the studio! I love how these came out! Jules has such a brilliant smile and Owen is such a great older brother, who was so happy to pose with his little sister.
Next are my little girl Gracey’s photos! I always take photos of her when I’m figuring out my setups for sessions. She’s always happy to model for me, especially because she knows there are freeze-dried beef liver treats in it for her!
Finally is my cousin Peyton’s Valentine’s Day photos! Peyton’s mom Lori is the reason why I have this very cute little play kitchen. She saw it for sale online and told me about it. I agreed it would be a very cute addition to the studio and picked it up. Peyton was very happy to play with it in exchange for a few beautiful smiles toward the camera!
I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s Day!
