Rochester Mi Children Photographer

I had a lot of fun spending time with my niece and nephew this weekend. We did so many things. The especially enjoyed both petting and “tormenting” their kitty cousins! But, a visit to Aunt Jen’s house wouldn’t be complete without a photo shoot. With swimming at the beach as a bribe, we took a few pictures before they jumped into the water. I can certainly understand what photographers mean when they say it’s hard to photograph your own family. The beach and ice cream bribes almost didn’t work, lol! As a Rochester Mi Children Photographer, I had a blast with these two. I really caught their distinct little personalities in these pictures. But whew-it was a lot of work!

It can be somewhat hard when you don’t have anyone to help get their attention. It also isn’t a new thing to them, since I’ve been photographing them both since they were newborns! So, I want to share some tips on photographing multiple children who are in your family. Check them out below! But first, check out Liam’s newborn pictures when he was just 7 days old! You can see Claire’s newborn photography session by clicking on this link! It’s amazing how much they have changed!

Tips on Photographing Family

First, always remain calm and at peace. If you are impatient, it will only get the kids upset. I had to talk them a few times, calmly and gently, and explain to them why we were taking photos. We wanted to surprise their mommy. That seemed to give me a few minutes of undecided attention. Another thing is to have a few different props. Sometimes, if you give a kid something to sit on, or even to hold, it can help them to stay where they are and smile at the camera. Even if it is only for .3454 seconds! And lastly, have fun! It’s not the end of the world if you only get 10 good photos. Even 1 would do! There are even more pictures that turned out, too! I only photographed them for about 10 minutes, too! By this point, they know the drill. If they look and smile, we will be done faster. After that we ended up having a blast at the beach, and a picnic for dinner there as well. They both got ice cream for being so well-behaved, too!

Here are just a few favorites of our quick photography session. Enjoy!

Ann Arbor Newborn Photographer

I have known Lake’s parents for many years! His mom and I go back to high school. I was so excited when she told me she was having a baby! Meeting Lake was so much fun-he is a perfect mix of his parents! As an Ann Arbor newborn photographer I have the pleasure of photographing many adorable newborn babies.

He was the best little sleeper for us, our session was over quickly! He never even made a peep once! I had a blast moving him from prop to prop. Lake loved being wrapped up, too! I love to swaddle newborn babies because it makes for some adorable pictures! Look at his adorable little baby toes sticking out, too!

I was excited to use my newest prop, the piano! Being a musician myself, it’s definitely one of the props I want to use when I have a baby of my own someday. It was definitely hard to narrow down for Lake’s sneak peek. But here are a few favorites! Hope you enjoy!

Chesterfield Michigan Baby Photographer

I was so excited to see this beautiful family again! We had such a great time and I got so many favorites from our session! As a Chesterfield Michigan Baby Photographer, one of the best parts of my job is seeing newborns grow up! 

It was amazing how much he grew since I saw him last! We tried to do a fun before and after but sweet Nicolas wasn’t having it. Crying shots can be so much fun to look back on, though. I definitely loved the one we did get! Check out just how much this cute little guy has grown by checking out his newborn photography session by clicking here! 

Tips on Having a Great First Birthday Photoshoot

I’d love to share some tips on having a great time when you book a first birthday photography session. The first tip is to always make sure the baby is well fed. The best time to start is close after nap time, that is usually baby’s happiest time! Secondly, allow the photographer to direct your session. They usually will have a vision for your shoot and will have tricks on getting the most out of it. Discussing beforehand any shots you may love is a great idea, so they can get an idea of what you’d like before planning your session. Last but not least, have fun! It really shows when you are having a great time VS having forced smiles. These photos photos will be remembered  in the years to come! You will want to look back fondly on the fun that was had!

I had such a hard time picking out the pictures for their sneak peek. My favorite was the one we did of little Nicolas flying away in the basket with his balloons! He sure loved being up in the air! Be sure to check out the before and after comparison first so you can see just how much he did change!

J Family – Rochester Family Photographer

We had the perfect 70 degree day for our Rochester session in July. I just loved seeing this sweet family again! I photographed their gender reveal party and can still remember their reactions when they found out they were having a boy. It was so fun! Their little guy is so handsome and has such beautiful eyes!

Their little guy was such a ham, but he sure made us work for his smiles! He was the cutest little boy ever. I especially loved how you could see his personality when you looked into his eyes. I love the variety of pictures we got with this beautiful family!

I had so many favorites from our session together. As always, it’s so hard for me to narrow down for just the sneak peek. Here are a few of my favorites!

Lucy – Macomb Michigan Newborn Photographer

I just loved working with sweet little Lucy! It’s so fun, I know her mom from many years ago. It was amazing to see her grow into a beautiful wife and mama! Lucy was the sweetest little thing, and I loved her cheeks. It was hard, as always, to narrow down for just the sneak peek. Lucy arrived with a bouquet of flowers, so we got to add some beautiful flowers to her shots! We even have the perfect weather to take her outside and get some beautiful shots with her mommy!

Every so often I get little babies that make me work for their poses-lol! Lucy was this baby. I always call then little divas. We still got all our poses but sweet little Lucy made me work for it-haha! She was such a strong little lady-I’m always amazed when I work with babies that have such strength for being so little. Here are a few of my favorites from our session together!
