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”.

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!

Family Portraits

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

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!

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

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.

Looking for models!

From time to time Barefoot Photography goes looking for models for creative sessions. If you are interested in possibly being a model, email me at kw@kimberlywhipps.com.  I can send you details about how modeling for a creative session works.

Looking for Models

Current Model Search

First, I am looking for a pregnancy model who is or will be 34-36 weeks along during the month of May or early June.

Next, I am also looking for a mother of two daughters who are both 10-18 years of age.

And lastly, I am ALWAYS looking for newborn triplets. I would prefer the babies to be 2-4 weeks old.

If you, or someone you know, falls into any of the categories above, please EMAIL me at kw@kimberlywhipps.com with a snapshot. I will forward you a link with an application and details.

Please share this with anyone you know who would qualify and would like a complimentary session. Thank you very much!

Flashback Friday – Maternity and Newborn

A gorgeous Flashback Friday for you all!  This family is an absolute delight to photograph.  Not only are the beautiful…they are so much fun!  We did their first daughter’s maternity and newborn session and I was delighted when they returned for their second daughter’s session.  And could big sister BE any cuter?   I love the simplicity of the clothes they chose for their session.  One of the most common questions I get is, “What should we wear?”  The answer is almost always the same…”SIMPLE is better!”  Simple clothes are great because they are just following a trend that is hot now and 8 years from now my clients will regret.  These are portraits that will stand the test of time.  When these darling girls grow up, they won’t look back and say, what were mom and dad thinking!?  That is one of the goals of my photography…to create maternity and newborn portraits that will last for generations!Portland Maternity Photography 01 - Flashback Friday - Maternity and NewbornMaternity and Newborn Maternity and Newborn Maternity and Newborn Maternity and Newborn Maternity and Newborn Maternity and Newborn Maternity and Newborn

Maternity and Newborn Portraits

Beautiful baby sister arrived!  And I just love this portrait of her with her adoring big sister.  So precious!  She’s already smitten…that is clear!  I am thrilled when families come all together for the newborn portrait session.  Capturing these moments when they are so little is priceless!  I know…mine are growing so fast!

When pulling the wagon becomes exhausting…you can always just take a rest.

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!

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.

Mommy and Me Session

 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!
