Cousins Photo Session * Frederick MD Family Photographer

These cool kiddos are all cousins.  In fact they are the children of some very dear friends of mine.  We grew up a few houses down from one another, and although two of their parents moved away, they come back and visit the rest of the family a couple of times a year.  The whole family made it to Thanksgiving this year and they made it a point to come and have all the cousins photographed together.  The kids were great.  Everyone cooperated for the group shot – I knew enough to take that one first.  Mr. N got a little silly when it was time for his sibling shots. I love a big personality, especially when they misbehave a little bit.  Mr. N is quite the entertainer, and kept me laughing the entire time. This was the first time I met the newest little cousin.  He couldn’t quite sit up yet and was a little over stimulated by all the craziness.  I kicked everyone out of the studio and his mommy and I finished up the session with some cute little baby pictures. Mom will be back next month for a few more.  It was a big day for this little guy, he needed a nap.

Family Holiday Photo Session * Frederick MD Christmas Photographer

I just LOVE these boys! I have been photographing them since they were newborns.  Their mommy and daddy are so easy going and really great with the boys.  This year was a little easier than years past.  Big brother really understood what was going on and he had a ball with it.  I was giving the boys funny words to say to make them laugh and big brother shouted out SUPERMAN! That was when I knew I would be taking a few solo Superman shots. Little brother wasn’t so interested.  Near the end of the session he wandered out of the studio and into the kitchen (mommy was close behind) where he became fascinated by our new family pet Blue Tommy the fish.  My daughter Katie named him after her brother.

Baby H’s Christmas Session * Fredderick MD Christmas Photographer

You probably remember Baby H and her awesome cake smashing abilities from her One Year Old Session. She came back for a few more Christmas pictures.  This time she brought mommy and daddy along.  I was happy to see her smiley little baby face.   Here are a few shots from this session.

H’s Holiday Photo Session * Frederick MD Children’s Photographer

I have been working with H and his mom and dad since H was a tiny little baby.  In fact mom just posted a few of H’s past Christmas sessions on FB and tagged me.  I love it.  You can see a bit of the little boy he has become in those first shots when he was just a few days old.  He is such a great kiddo.  He’s smart and funny and super sweet. I did not realize they drive an hour and a half for their annual session with me.  I knew where they lived but, geographically challenged, I didn’t really realize how far away it was.  I am so happy that they decide to make the journey (N,S,E,W?) every year.  I love hanging out with them.  They are such a happy family, the love just rubs off on you.

Anual Family Holiday Session * Frederick MD Family Photographer

I have been working with this family since big brother was a newborn.  I get such a kick out of seeing them every year and watching them grow up.  The brothers are all boy and baby sister can totally hold her own with them…and me!  She was a riot.  I hardly recognized her, her hair was so much darker at her last session.  I was actually caught off guard when mom took her hat off. Luckily we nailed a nice family shot with in the first few minutes of shooting.  The rest of the time was spent thinking of creative ways to get baby sister close enough to her brothers for a few shots of just the kids.  Easier said than done.  Mom and dad are pretty easy going, we didn’t over do it with the coaxing and eventually she wanted to join in the fun.  The boys were Rockstars this year! Lots of cooperation and very handsome smiles! It was great to see everyone.

This is not how I envisioned the photo when I made these props…I almost like it better.  They are a little less than JOYful, but for some reason it made me laugh so I shot it!
