Its official, I am now all caught up on my blog.  (Woohoo!)

Don’t let my pregnancy laziness fool you, I’m super excited to finally share this gang’s session.  This is my third time having the privilege to get them in front of my camera, and it is always so much fun to get to spend some time with them and document their adorableness.

Here are some of my favorites from their session.

This was the session that brought 2015 to a close for me.  Let me just say, I LOVE photographing this family, AND to top it off, we got to celebrate little Holly turning 1.

Dad is a photographer, so they come knowing the drill, and somehow their kids do not have that “photographer’s kid problem” like mine do (meaning they are totally bored with and want nothing to do with cooperating for photos anymore).  The Blech kids are quite the opposite.  It is actually quite freaky how amazing they are in front of the camera.  You may remember Kate’s shoot from earlier this year…and they are all this amazing!  I’m not sure how they do it.  Must be genetic.

Anyways, we finished off the year with this little mini session and here are a few of my favorites.  

Ok back to catching up on fall sessions.  This leads me to one of my favorite families, the Orsulic Family.

Let me take this opportunity tell you a little tidbit about Croatians.  I’m married to one so I’ll give you the inside scoop.  They are extremely tidy people.  At first I thought it was just my husband’s engineer mentality, but no, getting to know his big family, they are all the same.  Completely spotless.  If you walk into a Croatian’s home, you will never see a smudge on a baseboard, a crumb on the floor, or a speck of soap scum in their showers.  I can specifically remember using the bathroom at my husband’s aunt’s home the first time I visited, and I literally searched for any sign of imprecation.  Couldn’t find it.  It was truly amazing.  (If you ever walk into my house and see anything untidy, it is only because my husband lives with me and our 2 kids.  He just can’t compete.)

The Orsulic Family (we’re related by the way…Zoran is my husband’s cousin’s wife’s cousin…did you catch that?) definitely fall into this category of neat and clean, so you can imagine my horror when we arrived at our shooting location to find that it was EXTREMELY wet and muddy.  Out of all of the families I could have brought to a mess of a park, it had to be the Croatians!  Lucky for me, they were great sports about it and didn’t hate me for making them trek through the wetness to get some good family shots.  Phew!

Here are some of my favorites from their session.  

 

 

I walk away from pretty much every newborn session with a touch of baby fever.  However, I must say that adorable little August laid it on me thick!!  But for once baby fever is totally ok and welcome!  Thanks August!

This sweet boy was born in December on his due date (how is that for starting out life punctual?).  He also seems to have inherited his mom’s skills in front of the camera.  He was AWESOME during his session!  Mommy told him to smile, and then he would smile.  Mommy told him to sleep, then he would sleep.  Then Mommy told him to make us some coffee and he pulled out the french press and made us coffee.  (Ok maybe I’m stretching the truth a little but he might as well have because he was so helpful).

I loved this session so much.  My favorite photos are always the ones showing the closeness between mama and baby and you can definitely see this family feeling the love.  New love…what a beautiful thing.  

 

One of the reasons I look forward to my fall sessions is because I get to see friends that I don’t get to see all the time.  The Streelmans definitely apply here.

Courtney and I were roommates our last couple of years at ASU.  Those were some of my best memories of college, but inevitably at some point, we both became “real” grownups with busy lives and don’t get to see each other that often.  Kevin is a super talented golfer in the PGA, and Courtney and little miss Sophia travel most of the year with him to support him and cheer him on.  Since their time in town is always limited, I love my little window of catching up AND photographing their cute faces.
