Wesley, 1 Year! - NH Event Photography

This blog post is extra special to me because it commemorates my little nephew Wesley's very first birthday party! It was a special gathering of his nearest and dearest and I was honored to be a part of it (even though there are no pictures to prove I was there!). 

Wesley's mom and dad didn't skimp on the details, including monthly baby photos, an all-about-me board, party hats, balloons, and especially the amazing cupcake cake!

The cutest of the party goers (sorry grown-ups!).

The very proud Grandma and "Lala" (short for Abuela)...
 ...and of course Dad and Mom too!

 Time for cake! I think he liked it!
Safe to say "like father like son"?
Thanks so much for asking me to take pictures at the party! It was an honor and a great time. I know I say this all the time but it's true - The days are slow but the years fly by. Auntie loves you so much Wesley!!

Colby, 1 Year! - NH Portrait Photography Session

Recognize this beautiful family? I have been photographing them since before Colby was born! You can check out their maternity session here and follow Colby through his first year as a newborn, 3 month old, 6 month old and now as a one year old in this post. What a beautiful Watch Me Grow series. It always amazes me how much a baby grows and changes in just one short year!

Colby was so cute signing "more" when he saw what his mom had for him to eat. Yum!

Seriously such a good looking family...

It has been such a pleasure to work with this family. First Jen was like a model in her maternity shoot, then they treated me with amazing care in their home, even when I was pregnant myself. I will never forget that! You are wonderful people and I have no doubt that Colby is a very lucky and well loved little man. Check your email to see your full gallery. Enjoy!

Ella, 8 Months - NH Portrait Photography Session

Welcome Miss Ella back to the blog! You can check out her newborn and 4 month "Watch Me Grow "sessions as well.  She is one very well loved baby for sure. I was able to snap a quick shot of Ella and her proud dad showing her some love in between set-ups. I hope I can convince her mom to get in a picture or two next time! 

Ella's favorite face to make was sticking her tongue out. It was so funny!

Those eyes!

Lorraine & Bob - Thank you once again for a great photo session and for all your hospitality. You are wonderful people and I'm proud to call you my friends as well as clients. I can't believe Ella's one year session is right around the corner! Be on the lookout for an email from me with your full gallery link and password and in the mean time share this post with all your family and friends.

Colby, 6 Months - NH Portrait Photography Session

Welcome Colby back to the blog! 3 months older and full of personality he was such a pleasure. Those cheeks!!! This is his next Watch Me Grow session. Start with his Mom's stunning maternity session and then check out his Newborn and 3 month sessions if you're not up to speed.  I love working with this family. They have a great sense of style and had a great big spread of healthy snacks out just for not so little ol' pregnant me. I wish I had taken a picture of all the yummy food so I could show off their thoughtfulness but I was too busy munching in between set ups!

"What can I say? I'm a natural."

Those eyes!

Colby was at his happiest once his mom took his socks off so he could play with his cute little toes and put him in his comfy clothes. I can't say I blame him!

This was the very last shot of our session just before Colby's nap time and I just couldn't resist sharing.

Jen & Steve - Thanks so much again for a great session! Colby just gets cuter and cuter and cuter. Keep an eye out for an email from me with your full gallery and until then feel free to share this post!

Colby, 3 Months - NH Portrait Photography Session

Remember Colby? He was the cute newborn in the bear hat seen here. Fast forward 3 months and is even cuter! Check out those cheeks! We realized pretty quickly that Colby was not a fan of hats. Keep scrolling to see an even funnier one when we tried just one more time :)

Enough with the hats already!

Proud Mom and Dad, totally in love with their little man.

Jen & Steve - Thank you once again for having me! I'm so excited for the next session in Colby's Watch Me Grow series. I can't thank you enough for all of your effort during the session and your kindness to this pregnant photographer who was feeling less than her best. You are awesome! I've been hooked on sparkling water ever since too. Great tip! Keep an eye out for an email from me with your full gallery and until then feel free to share this post!

Ella, 4 Months - MA Portrait Photography Session

Miss Ella is back up on the blog for her next Watch Me Grow session! You can check out her newborn session here. She was a little shy at first, but once her auntie got involved it was all smiles!

She even held her head right up with a smile on her face! 

Last but not least we couldn't pass up trying for a picture in her beautiful Halloween Frozen costume. What a cute baby Elsa! 

Lorraine & Bob - Thanks so much again for choosing me as your photographer! I am always excited to come to your house for a session. Not just because you always feed me something yummy before I leave, but because you are friends. It doesn't get much better than that. Note to self though - always book Ella's sessions on a Sunday. Home made Italian food...Mmmmmm! :)

Landon & Lexa - NH Portrait Photography Session

Say hello to Landon and Lexa! If you've been following the blog lately, they are Kailyn and Avery's cousins. Check out their spring extended family session here. This family seriously has the most adorable children. Those eyes! Last year during our fall session we ended up with a very cold and windy day (check it out here - brrr!) so we thought we got the perfect conditions this year with warmer weather and no cold red noses...
 We even found some leaves to play in!

Landon and Lexa were so easy to work with. I think they had lots of fun and they kept right up with the fast pace. We had to move quickly because it was about to rain! If you look really closely at the last photo you can see the rain drops. Just a few short moments after that we all started to get really wet!

Chris, Shawna, Landon & Lexa - Thank you so much for being so awesome! It's always an adventure when we get together and you always handle it like pros. Be on the lookout for am email from me with a link to your full gallery!
