Well, I just think Olivia is one of the happiest little people on the face of this earth! Every time I meet up with her she has so many sweet smiles, talks a mile a minute, and is generally in a super mood! (I definitely couldn't say that for either of my kids!)
As I mentioned in a previous post, Olivia has just hit the 4 month mark! Take a look at how beautiful she is!
For this first photo, Olivia's dad, Carmen, just plopped her in my little basket...here's one of the photos we got from that! Happy as a clam...
At 4 months, babies haven't yet mastered the whole sitting up trick and they tend to be teething, so you never really know what you are going to get for photographs. I just like to go with the flow and take cues from the child so as not to stress them out or make them too uptight. So that being said, I generally do not spend much, if any, time on posing. It just doesn't usually work and I want to capture the natural essence of them as they want to be. Olivia is a natural and we work well together as she needs no posing cues at all. In fact, she taught me a thing or two! As she was having 'tummy time' Olivia all of a sudden clasped her little (wet from teething) hands and smiled like an angel. I swear, I had nothing to do with this following pose...how beautiful is this child!!!?
Here we are outside. I love being outside with my clients, I love the light and I love that we are free to do as we please. If I had my druthers I'd be outside all of the time. However, Winter in New England does not generally permit this, especially with babies, so I always have backup options should the need arise!
One last photo before the slide show, I just love the angle on this one!
Carmen & Melissa, thanks so much for having me again! I love working with you guys and I am so happy we have become friends as well! See you soon! xo, Katie
Enjoy the slide show!
