I owe a lot to Sarah. When she decided to go back to school to get her Masters, I took over for her teaching at the elementary school I currently work at. She also introduced me to my husband and thought that we would be a good match. I know! Not only is she an amazing artist and educator, she is now an amazing mom! I have had so much fun doing photography sessions with her. From bridal portraits, to maternity, and now we just completed her baby girls one month pictures. Sarah always brings her creativity to our shoots and this one has to be my favorite of them all.
Sarah knew that she didn’t want the typical newborn photo shoot, so she waited until baby Violet was one month old. Her sister Kristin flew down so she could join in on her sister and nieces pictures. Sarah and her sister completely styled this shoot. Their gorgeous floral crowns and the adorable teepee for baby Violet gave the session a beautiful bohemian feel. I loved watching these sisters interact with one another and found that they posed themselves perfectly and in a completely natural way. We also had a lot of help from Momma Brown who is behind the scenes in this shoot. She even made sure we all had bug spray when the mosquitoes started biting! It wouldn’t be a summer Eastern Shore photo shoot without those pesky bugs.
We also included Sarah and her husband’s camper, Little Eagles Nest, that they totally renovated themselves. I can’t wait to see the whole family take their first trip together in it! The girls channeled their inner mermaid at the end of the shoot and we got some perfect shots just as the sun was starting to set. Kristin bought the shell headbands that they are wearing in the last photos from her trip to Hawaii! They couldn’t be more perfect! I can’t wait to work with this sweet family again in the future!
We had a time trying to keep that baby floral crown on! I’m sure if Violet knew how fabulous she looked with it on, she would have liked wearing it more! haha!
I can’t get over how perfect the little teepee turned out! Violet loved looking up at her dreamcatcher as we took her portraits!
I absolutely love these pictures that we took with the camper! They just feel so natural.
These last two portraits of mother and daughter turned out to be my absolute favorite! You can just feel the love that Sarah has for this baby girl!
