Earlier this summer, I had the BEST mother-baby session with little Sophie and her mom Frederique.
Sophie was a little slow to warm up, reserving her best smiles for a little while, but oh, once she got going? The smiles were pure sunshine.
It must be exhausting, being that cute, no? :)
I have to say, in a couple of years when Joel and I are ready to start a family, I hope I find a new mom's group as cool as Teran and Freddy's.) These ladies have been so great, and I've been having so much fun with the bebes. I'm so appreciative of the way they've been passing my name onto friends and family, including Freddy's sister-in-law Eleanor.
Joel and I went down to Sea Girt for our anniversary weekend earlier this month, and we shot the session on the beach, a nearby park and around Spring Lake, NJ.
I look at this little one and think her baby cousin might look just like her in a few years. :)
And oh, this one. He made me WORK for these smiles. :) Now we know he was getting sick, poor little guy!
They were so much fun, bringing out my inner kid and sticker collector.
I really wanted to get just ONE shot of the kids looking at the camera and smiling, but this was about as good as we got.
I might get another chance, though, at a TRIPLE baptism in October for James, Sophie and another cousin. Thanks so much for letting me photograph your kids, you guys! I'd love to see you all again. (And oh, I will have more stickers for bribes. Oh, yes. ;)
