I know it's been a while, but what can I say ... 2020 has been quite the year already and it's not even over yet ... ;)
In more exciting news, my lovely sister-in-law and her husband are anxiously awaiting their first baby boy to join their family this month. So obviously, I had to capture the beautiful baby belly before he makes his arrival. He is already so loved by his parents and his three sisters. I cannot wait for him to be here!
This photoshoot pictures motherhood perfectly. If anyone is wondering what it's like to take pictures of little children, scroll down to see the craziness, beauty and joy of it.
1. Opt Outside
Apart from the fact that natural lighting is best for taking high quality images (unless you use photography lights indoors), nature creates a nice back drop for images. Try to find spots with lots of surrounding greenery and you are good to go.
2. Go to A Spot That They Love
If they are comfortable in the environment they are in, they will more likely want to cooperate. After all, you want to capture them when they are happy and smiling rather than when they are grumpy. For example, playgrounds are a good place for photoshoots with your kiddos.
3. Catch them in their element
Don't force them to pose. They won't enjoy that and it doesn't really represent who they are anyway. They are kids, let them be little. As a result, you will capture many real moments of their childhood - what a treasure!

Sweet baby Marielle is turning ONE year old, which was the perfect opportunity for a mini shoot of her and her family.

My beautiful baby niece made her arrival and we couldn't be more smitten. She is perfect in every way!
Her parents and sisters just adore her.
I was fortunate enough to snap a few pics just two days after she was born.
I hope you all enjoy these as much as I do.
