Emily and Thomas are really used to me sticking my camera lens in their faces. I've been photographing their family since little Emily was christened. If you've visited this blog before, you've probably seen the Cameron family at some point. Their grandma Emily (little Emily's namesake) has been friends with my mom since they were in 1st grade. Grandma Emily thought it would be a fun idea to bring little Emily and Thomas to the beach for a photo session to give to their mom Erin for her birthday. They're a big beach family and little Emily especially loves mermaids, so this was a perfect opportunity to get her tail on and visit the shore!
They, of course, did an excellent job because they know by now that when I'm around, it's time to break out their serious modeling skills. Here are my favorite photos from the session!

My heart melted a little when Christian’s mom told me why she wanted to book a photo session for her son. She wanted to gift the photos to her husband for his first Father’s Day. She especially wanted to try to recreate a special photo taken of him when he was a kid, of him with two Mickey Mouse stuffed toys. Being a big Disney lover, I was so glad she asked me to help her with this very sweet portrait session.
Christian did so well in the studio! Some kids have a tough time sitting up at seven months old, but he did a great job. I couldn’t get over his very inquisitive beautiful blue eyes. He really enjoyed pushing the Radio Flyer around, and that made for my favorite photo of the day.
I always love when clients give the gift of photography. It's so meaningful and that meaning will last for generations. Making a tradition of photos means the memories will go on way beyond our time. I'm so glad I was able to help contribute to the memories of this beautiful family! Here are more of my favorite photos from Christian's special portrait session!

I was there for the baby shower, the maternity photos, the newborn session, the Christening, the Christmas photos, and now, finally, the 1st birthday cake smash for twin brothers Vincent and Louis! These guys were smiling and ready for their session from the get go. I mean, they should be used to it at this point, right? I’m not even sure these boys would recognize me if there wasn’t a lens in front of my face.
They gave me a ton of smiles and made each other laugh a lot during our session. I have a feeling they’re going to be doing that their whole lives! Once we did photos in their cute outfits, we stripped them down to just a diaper cover and bow tie to get to the main event...the cake smash! Now I thought they were going to take after their cousin Addison, whose cake smash I shot in December. She attacked her cake with gusto!
Vincent and Louis, however, were much more reserved when the cakes came out! They each dipped a finger or two in the cake and took dainty little tastes of the frosting. It wasn’t until we got both boys and both cakes together that they really dug in. I think they were more interested in what each other had, so it spurred them on to get their hands dirty!
I think they liked it! Here are some of my favorite photos from their session. Enjoy!

Merry 1st Christmas to Vincent and Louis! These two looked so dapper in their Christmas outfits. We all know babies are cute, but put a bow tie on them? This is a whole other level of aww we’re talking about here. They even brought along their Christmas jammies to take a few photos in.
These kids are definitely used to me flashing my lights in their face, because I’ve photographed pretty much every step of the way. Because of that, they extended me the considerable courtesy of not spitting up until we were right at the tail end of the session. It was so much appreciated! :D
Here are some of my favorite photos from Vincent and Louis’ 1st Christmas session! Enjoy!
So I shot Addison’s newborn photos and then I blinked...and it’s her 1st birthday already! She came back to the studio for some Christmas shots and a 1st birthday shoot, because she’s a December baby. We started off in her adorable Christmas dress, then did some family photos. Then she changed into a very cute 1st birthday outfit...and then...the cake smash!!
Boy, did she get into it. She was quite literally covered in frosting from head to toe. I’m not quite sure how much cake ended up in her mouth, but I know she enjoyed it immensely. Her parents had quite a cleanup on their hands afterwards, but she left the studio squeaky clean, with maybe just a tad bit of frosting behind the ears! In my opinion, we should all attack our birthday cakes with as much gusto as Addison! Well, maybe more like half the gusto. A quarter, at least. :D
Happy 1st birthday, kiddo!
Have a first birthday coming up in your family?
