I met this urban mama when she was pregnant (and literally about to have the baby any day)!
Five months later, Lili has a new house and three beautiful boys (Sam, 2, Benji, 5 mos, and her hubby Eddie)! It was fantastic to see them again.
Now A Family of FOUR!
Casual Family Time
I was taking naked baby shots of Ben when Sam wanted to copy his baby brother. It wasn’t worth the fight, so we let Sam be naked too!
Redefining the “Formal Family Portrait”
When you have an independent 2-year old, you can’t force him to take a formal family shot. Two-year olds don’t care if you want a photo for your holiday cards or that this family portrait means a lot to you. It’s all about having fun and doing what you want to do…
So I advised Lili and Eddie to not force Sam to sit with them if he didn’t want to.
The result: a beautiful natural shot that shows the kids’ personalities!
Is It Dinner-time? Because I See Some Rolls!
Benji had delicious rolls and rolls of chubbalubalub!
Benji’s eyes were mesmerizing to look at…..
One of my favorite baby shots ever…
Tenderness & Intimacy
This is my favorite mom and babies shot from today. The fact that both boys are naked makes this image more raw and intimate.
The Sam Show
This little toddler cutie was playing by the window, so what a grand opportunity for me to shoot just him!
I played trucks with him, which made him VERY happy! And it made him sit still!
I love this entire series of Sam shots. So you must see them all!
I hope to see the S. Family in 2010 when Benji can crawl or walk, and Sam and Ben can interact with each other more!
Oops… One More!
I almost forgot to add this one. I love this one too, and this super contrast-y BxW is delicious!
