Summer Birmingham Family Session

Summer Birmingham Family Session

I think it’s really special to get photos taken with your kid and their grandparents. I’ve loved how many clients have decided to include grandparents in their sessions over the past year, including these parents for their summer Birmingham family session. This session also celebrated 18 months of Emma! And what a little personality she is now; here’s her at 5 months at an in home session. 

Eighteen month olds can be one of the trickiest ages to photograph. They are moving and grooving but they aren’t able to understand bribes or negotiation quite yet. So we had to be crafty with how to get Emma to cooperate. I think we succeeded – she is just adorable, don’t you think?

We used one of my favorite spots for families – it’s an easy in and out of the car and a short walk to a great spot. I prefer to make it easier on clients with littles.

Clawson Family Session at Home

Clawson Family Session at Home

I always love spending time with families over and over again. I was lucky enough to photograph Charlotte’s newborn session and her one year session. Before they moved out of their house, this fam invited me back for a Clawson family session at home. I can’t believe how much Benjamin has grown since I first met him. In fact, we were talking about how Charlotte was acting just like Benjamin did during our first session together – it’s an age thing for sure! Either way, we got some great shots of these cuties just doing what they do best – being themselves.

I love doing family sessions like this – just relaxed and letting everyone be comfortable in their space. Sometimes for little ones, it’s the best option. Also, it gave this family some last memories in their home before moving.

Livonia Extended Family Session

Livonia Extended Family Session

I remember extended family sessions when I was younger – they were mostly of my cousins and I. Like most of the family photo sessions we did, we took them at Sears studio. Remember that? This Livonia extended family session isn’t like that at all!

Dani booked this Livonia extended family session as a celebration of her parents’ wedding anniversary and for a refresh of their family’s photos. At Dani and Matt’s wedding, they couldn’t include the family dog Luna.

There are so many reasons you could schedule an extended family session: an anniversary, a new baby, a yearly tradition, redecorating, etc. I think it’s lovely to have some professional photos of your extended family periodically, plus what’s cuter than photos of your parents. You don’t have to be getting married to have photos together!

We met at Greenmead Historic Village in Livonia, which is one of my favorite spots for families. There are a lot of different settings very close together and I love the textures of historic buildings.

Troy Newborn Photographer | Jane

Troy Newborn Photographer | Jane

So many babies are born in the fall it seems! It was so exciting to meet baby Jane a few weeks after her birth for this Troy newborn photographer. Jane is now much much older, but I still wanted to share this sweet at home Troy newborn session.

The second baby always seems a little more chill, at least that’s how it’s gone for newborn sessions. At home newborn sessions always hit a little different when there’s another little human or two to contend with. But we just go with the flow and usually we get something so never worry about it!

Jane’s big chubby cheeks are just to die for. This Troy newborn photographer can’t get enough of them!

Beverly Hills Village Park Family Session

Beverly Hills Village Park Family Session

I love being invited to a family’s home for a session! This Beverly Hills Village Park family session was divided into two: we started at their home and then finished up at the park for sunset. This family had recently moved into their house and wanted to capture a few memories in it as a celebration, as well as include their four-legged family member.

Now Caroline and Teddy are a year older and I’ve seen them for tree farm minis, but still just as cute and photogenic. Teddy now has a wild head of curls that I just adore. Kayla and Justin made some cute babies, didn’t they?

Mini sessions are great (I love them dearly) but sessions like this Beverly Hills Village Park family session really allow me to spend more time with your family and get more of the playful side of things. Also if your kiddos take time to warm up, I suggest trying a full session before attempting any mini session. Sometimes it’s just the age, sometimes it’s the temperament/personality of your kiddos! Full sessions allow me to really take time and get those more genuine interactions that I can’t grab in 20 minutes!

For our own family, I do both a full and mini session once a year a least. I find little kids really change so much even in 6 months so having at least two sessions allows me to capture those changes. After having my own baby I really can say, wow they do grow so fast! I know I’ll never regret the money spent on having someone else take our photo together since let’s be real, when does mom hop in, especially when she’s a professional photographer?

Beverly Hills Village Park is kind of a hidden gem in the southern Oakland County area. The best part is limited walking which for families with littles is IDEAL. This session was later in the fall (almost Thanksgiving) but I could see a gorgeous summer session happening here – beautiful trees, open grassy area and water.
