Colette with Pearl and Vedder – Mommy and Me Session

Get ready for an overshare.  I can’t help myself!!  Check out this adorable Mommy and Me Session.  Colette came in without daddy for this one…not that we don’t adore daddy!  (Don’t worry Gerrit, you are adored!)  But sometimes, it’s precious to capture a mommy with her little ones.  Just to cherish that sweet connection, that bond.  And while we were at it, of course we threw in a few sibling shots and two year birthday shots.  (Remember that whole, “I can’t help myself” dealio?)  How could I resist?  Pearl and Vedder are so adorable!!

Oh…hey!  Did you know that Barefoot Photography is F.I.N.A.L.L.Y on Instagram?  It’s true!  Follow me here.

Oh my squishy butt!  Just look at this chunk!  I think Colette is leaning here a bit, which is understandable, he’s such a big boy!  He was also getting a little sleepy here, which made the snuggles all the sweeter.

Mommy and Me Session

My favorite of baby Vedder.  I just love the look in his eyes.  Safe and sound in his mommy’s arms.  Perfection!

Mommy and Me Session

I love all of these photos…but these have to be my favorite!  I asked Pearl how old she was and this was her response.  I love the little thoughtful tongue as she tries to figure out how to get her fingers to do her bidding.  So cute!

Yes she is two years old and just as cute as can be.  Beautiful Pearl!  With her super cute Mickey and Minnie shoes!  I’m not a big shoe fan (obviously) but if you have to wear shoes, I guess they should have Mickey and Minnie on them.

 Wrangling a two year old and trying to keep her curls straight while you put a cute clip in with a crying baby on your lap…all while looking gorgeous yourself.  Ahhh…motherhood!  It is beautiful in all it’s moments…from the snuggles to the struggles.  Fight the good fight mommas!  You are amazing!

Tween and Sibling PortraitsSibling Portraits

You know how they say, the cobbler’s kids have no shoes?  Well…it holds true for photographers too, my kids have no shoes.  (Hee hee)   Actually…it is true that I rarely get my own little faces into the studio for updated portraits.  But I am so thankful I finally found the time in their busy schedule and mine to take these photographs.  For these portraits, we really wanted to capture their personalities  at this moment, their favorite things, how they are beginning to define themselves as individuals.  Your family session can include both tween and sibling portraits!

Maybe you have someone in your life starting to do the same…a budding artist, a football star, a future veterinarian?  Perhaps we can capture a similar moment in time for you!  Did you know that
“tween” mini sessions can be done at any time?  Mini sessions are typically a special event at Barefoot Photography, but I think tween portraits are overlooked, and necessary, so I offer them at any time.  Contact me for more information, and do it today before your tween becomes a teen and then a young adult!  Careful…could be happening right now!

Capturing Individuality!

Oh my goodness, this girl and her stuffed animals.  I don’t like to throw around the word obsession…but there are over 120, so what would you call that?

But never the less, look at the joy they bring her!  So glad we captured this moment before they stuffed animals are replaced with make up and boys.

Tween Portraits

And, our soccer star!  This girl plays on two different teams and almost ended up on three.  She is a rockstar and her focus and determination is inspiring.

Throw a challenge down and this girl will conquer it.

Tween Portraits

The lure of the stage…our girl in the limelight.  I still cannot believe that she started this adventure just two years ago and is already singing, dancing and acting

with more heart and passion than people who have been at it for years. Watching her perform is sheer bliss!

Tween Portraits

So proud to call these three ours!  “Behold, children are a gift of the LORD.” Psalm 127:3aTween and Sibling Portraits

audrie – 6 months – Sitter Portraits

Sitter PortraitsSitter Portraits Portland

One of my favorite types of photography session is sitter portraits!  Sitters are babies typically between 5-8 months old.  The ideal stage to do these portraits is when your baby is sitting up unaided, but not yet crawling.  Of course, these sessions can be done once baby starts crawling, in that case, mom and/or dad gets a workout, chasing the little one around.  It’s a hoot!

Little Miss Audrie was at the perfect age for her portraits.  And oh my goodness…such beautiful blue eyes.  It’s always hard to decide between color and black and white because of this girls eyes.  But what can I say, I’m a sucker for black and white.

Sitter Portraits Barefoot Photography

Audrie kept trying to fly during our session…you can do it girl!

I’m so thankful that this family ever walked into my studio.  They bring so much joy (and energy) with them when they come.  Sitter sessions can often be done as a mini session…and I am never opposed to the whole family jumping in for a few portraits.  In fact…I will typically push mom and dad into a few pictures, even if they were thinking they might not have any family portraits.  Like I always say, you don’t have to buy the portraits, but if you don’t take them, you will never have the choice.

Miss Audrie was just about done…

But we talked here into a few more portraits, and I am so glad we did.  Just look at that gorgeous toothless grin!

odessa and imogen – Family Portraits

Family Photography Portland

And another wonderful family that has been coming to me for family portraits for years!  In fact, this family is one of two families that have been coming to Barefoot Photography since I got my start in my backyard studio…so many years!  Thank you, thank you for trusting these sweet memories to me.  It’s an honor!

“We are blessed to have Kimberly take our family’s pictures!  We are always comfortable and she is so great with the kids — from newborn to older.  Kimberly took my maternity pics too and I am so happy to have those memories.  We couldn’t love a photographer more.  Plus, she is just an awesome person :)”

I need to do some digging so I can show you a “watch me grow” post for these girls.  This session was easily one of my favorites to date.  Odessa is quickly becoming a young lady…entering that tween stage.  And little Imogen has so much energy and vitality!  I love capturing their unique personalities.  And these photos are not staged…I didn’t have to bribe them.  This is who they are, they hug, they hold hands…they snuggle.  I would just give them an idea…”Can you touch noses?” And then oh, the giggles.  Sweet moments!

Portland Family PhotographerThis family is drawn to black and white portraits, as am I.  But the pop of color on the blue trunk is so beautiful!  I love the simplicity of their white dresses against the grey backdrop, with that splash of color.  Children's Portraits PortlandChildren's Portraits PortlandSuch a fabulous family…a joy to photograph!  Our sessions have always been filled with laughter.Portland Family PhotographerThis portrait of the sisters is my favorite from their photo shoot.  I simply told them to stand here together.  I turned and this is what I saw.  SO precious!  What a beautiful moment…  I just adore the way Imogen is holding onto big sister Odessa’s arm.  Perfection…Family Photography PortlandChildren's Portraits PortlandFamily Portraits Portland AreaKeep smiling girls…you’re beautiful inside and out!

blake and audrey – Children’s Photos

Children’s Photos

Say hello to Blake and his little sister Audrey.  What a pair of sweethearts!  I’ve had the joy of photographing these two for a long time now.  In fact, I first photographed these two when Audrey was still “wombside”.  Their parents recently opted to have some children’s photos taken during the last of the Towne Storage sessions.   (Boy, am I going to miss that place!)  Enjoy the brick wall and their adorable faces!

Children's Photos

And I just have to point out, that the portrait above here was all them.  I asked them to sit next to each other and this is what they did.  So precious!  The love they share is obvious.

Sibling Portraits

I think sibling portraits are one of the most requested portraits in any of my sessions.  No matter what type of session it is, mom and dad (especially mom) want a photo of all of their kiddos together.  And age makes no difference!  When doing senior portraits I get asked to do a few sibling portraits.  I’m always willing if it’s possible to get shots of all the children, even the four legged ones, together.
