I am thrilled for Melissa and Chip and soon-to-be big brother Nicholas as they prepare to welcome a newborn into their home. (Be sure to check back in late June for newborn shots!) And getting to see Melissa’s parents, Lucinda and Bill, is an added treat. As you can see by the following photos, we had way too much fun as we documented pregnancy, family, and life. Special thanks to Melissa and Chip for always being willing to try different ideas (This is the fifth time I have had the privilege of photographing them, from Nicholas’s birth to now.) and for always making me look like a better photographer. I can’t wait to meet the newest member of your familly!!
And I had to take a few of Nicholas!
These last two just warmed my heart!
I love shooting toddlers. (And infants. And families. And weddings. And…) But, seriously, toddlers are so much fun because they NEVER hold still. They are always looking for the next world to conquer, and sitting on mom or dad’s lap simply does not allow conquests. And Jack is the perfect example. From climbing the stairs to finding the Easter egg patch in the neighbors’ garden to running across the yard, Jack was so much fun to photograph. And seeing Bob and Cindy is an added bonus! Happy birthday, Jack!
As always, I love shooting birthdays with a favorite possession of the child’s parent. Here Jack models his dad’s baseball glove. I can’t wait to see what he does with it next year!
