Jude and Jamie – See them Grow!

Settle in folks, I have had the joy of taking family portraits for this wonderful family for years.  It’s time for a “See Them Grow” post!  This is so fun…and thanks to my new filing system, so much easier.  (Did you know that I don’t delete images?  It’s true…how could I!?)  First, check out this progression of sibling portraits over the years.

Family Portraits

This family has been coming to see me since the beginning of their family…with their very first “bump”.

Maternity Portraits

And Mr. Jude as a newborn.  He was such a tiny baby!

Newborn Portraits

 Jude and his mama waiting for baby sister.  I love that they decide to book a maternity session for their second baby.  I think many families overlook maternity portraits for second or third babies.  “I have photos of me pregnant” I have heard some people say.  But every pregnancy is different and wonderfully special.  Plus, maternity photos with older siblings are precious!

The whole family!  I love family photos with newborns.  And precious little Jamie with her little finger!

Another adorable session with these two as they grow.

Oh how I miss my old brick wall…so glad we captured these moment in that beautiful place.  I love the portrait of the two of them standing and looking at my like that.  Cracks me up!

And here we are to the most current session.  Look at how they have grown!

Children's Portraits

Jamie and his trains!  If you look back through their photos, you’ll see this is a common thread.

I love this little scrunched up grin.  She’s such a precious and fun girl.

Thank you Glen and Kristen for choosing Barefoot Photography again and again for your family portraits because it has been a fun ride!  Give me a call or send me an email if you want to begin to capture your family in portraits.

Audrey – One Year

I’m sure some of you will recognize this little beauty who came to see me for her one year portraits.  I have photographed Audrey and her big brother Aaron since they were both “womb side”.  What a joy it has been to watch them grow.  When Audrey came in for her one year session, let’s just say, she wasn’t too thrilled with the idea.  Many times, parents will stress during the portrait session, worrying that we aren’t “getting anything good”.  But 99% of the time, that is just not the case.  You see these kiddos like to throw out gems like this first image amid the frowns or tears, and if your timing is right, you capture it!  My clients are often times pleasantly surprised at the results.

One Year Portraits

What fabulous moments can you capture with one year portraits?  Well, often times we capture baby’s just starting to stand up.  Here’s a moment we tried and tried to capture and thankfully we did!  Audrie standing on her own!  Many of my clients also choose to do a “cake smash” at the end of their one year session…sometimes baby looooves the cake, other times not so much.  Either way, it makes for some adorable portraits.

And of course, no baby session would be complete without tears.  HA!  Sort of joking…but it is true.  Tears often fall…let’s face it, their babies!  But oh so precious…big brother comforting little sister.  But what can you do when your comforting fails?  I’m with Aaron here…what are you going to do?

Have you missed some milestones?  No worries!  It’s never too late to capture your little one.   But let get you into the studio before anymore moments slip away.  Contact Kimberly today to schedule your baby’s session.

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.

I’m not making any official announcements, but if you are interested in your own Mommy and Me session you should probably be sure that you are getting the Barefoot Photography Newsletter.

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!

HA!  I love this…

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!
