baby g – one year

I had the pleasure of taking this little gomper’s newborn photos, so I was extra excited for his one year old shoot. Even with the triple digit temperatures, this little guy was so fun….seriously the best baby! And remember the baby pic with his cowboy daddy kissing his head? Well, we did it again…and I think it’s giving the original a run for it’s money! :)

These two…..I’d love them even if they weren’t related to me. :) But because they are related to me, I get to make them do all the stuff I can’t make other kids do! Get on horses, roam empty fields, pick up barn cats…..these two are game for whatever. Plus, they don’t come any cuter.

This sweet baby girl put up with the multiple outfit changes, interruption of her nap, and a camera constantly clicking in her face….she did however put her foot down when we posed her in a Christmas stocking. A girls’ gotta have her limits….

It may have taken a mix of puddles, mickey mouse, and my doggy assistant Stella to keep this adorable toddler’s attention…..but it was worth it. I love how this sweet mother and son session turned out!

This little gomper was just 4 days new for his photo shoot….and had one dang proud big brother. :) Doesn’t get much cuter! At four days old, one would think he’d be the sleepiest babe ever….not for me! I like to think that babies just love me so much they don’t want to miss a moment of my presence by sleeping. :) No? Not buying?

Everyone’s probably seen those super cute newborn portraits where the sleeping baby is in a cocoon….kicking back in a hammock….smoking a cigar (okay, maybe not that one, but you get the idea). Well, let’s just say none of that was happening with this wee one. She was a doll….but was wide awake for the whole session. There are a few that may look like she was sleeping, but I think she was just blinking really slow at that point.:) Oh well….she was a good sport and a ridiculously sweet babe, so I’ll deal with the alertness.

This session was shot when I was back home in MN over the week of Thanksgiving. As you can imagine, MN in late November is cooooooold! This mommy and son were awesome though and handled the cold way better than I did. I’m quite sure AZ has thinned my blood! It was a fun change to have snow and pines to shoot in….and I thought the dogsled (which I borrowed from my parents’ Alaskan Malamute) gave the pics a very “northwoods” touch. And on a different note, this kid’s blue eyes…..ridiculous. :)
