Yes, these portraits may have taken place TWO months ago... and, yes, I completely failed to get them on the blog in a timely manner. But, seriously, when you have newborn portraits like *these* sitting on your laptop, they simply HAVE to be shared!!!! So, accept all my apologies and know that I promise the tardiness is made up for in the adorableness! Just trust me! ;)
That moment you become pregnant after doctors tell you there is no way it can happen...... I guess God just knew that this little family was not complete yet! ;) I know that ALL pregnancies are simply an absolute joy..but there's just a DIFFERENT type of anticipation surrounding a miracle baby! And this family is DEFINITELY excited!
I loved that Kristy wanted so quickly to do an earthy session equipped with Mother-Earth gown, floral head-wrap and complimented by, none other than, a waterfall! Yes, please!!! And, she NAILED it!!! She looked nothing short of an absolute fairy goddess! It also fit perfectly with Finn's nursery theme of "Adventure"! And, you can't leave out, Caleb (the big brother) who did an unforgettable reading to baby-bump- including voices! (What can I say, he's definitely a former Library student of mine!) Haha
I simply adore everything about this maternity session and canNOT wait to get my lens on Mr. Finn!!!!
That moment you get to photograph the CUTEST little boy TWICE within a 2 month period.... YESSS PLEASE! I absolutely adore Maddix and am so beyond excited for him and his parents on Miss Ryla's not-too-far-off arrival! Jennifer and Si are the sweetest couple and have been waiting so long for another little bundle of joy to add to their precious family. And...seriously.... is Maddix not THE most adorable Big Brother to be? I cannot wait to meet this precious baby girl and get all the snuggles and presh baby portraits!! In the meantime, stroll through and be jealous at how gorgeous this Momma is at 37 weeks!!!!! She ROCKED this maternity session!!
My end of the year blog always seems to end up being my favorite. It causes me sit back and take a look into each and every session from the year. It reminds me of the struggles - and how those struggles were overcome. It reminds me of the new clients- and how friendships were made. It reminds me of the places we need to grow- and challenges me to grow in those areas and more. And it ultimately reminds me of how much of a blessing JustB Photography is each and every day! It is still surreal to me that I get to do this as a "job". It's true when they say that it doesn't feel like work when you love what you do!
With that said, here is a quick look back over 2017! It was truly a GREAT year for JustB Photography!! It would literally be a BLANK year without all of YOU!!!
What a wonderful year it's been! We are so blessed by all of you who support, encourage and trust us with your forever memories! Here's to many, many more wonderful years at JustB!
View the next blog to see what all is in store for JustB Photography for 2018!!!! Lots of changes, lots of new goals....lots of excitement!!!!
I can't think of a better way to kick off JustB's Year Three than with Madison's Senior Session! Talk about a last minute meant to be kinda session! Madison's mom messaged on Sunday and we were out on their land shooting the following Tuesday. When it's meant to be, it's just meant to be. Not to mention that Madison is another one of my soul-mate-seniors who wanted to incorporate her love for music and reading into the session. Yes, please!
This Glenwood Senior plays the oboe and loves all things reading and writing. She was so laid back and happily went into each and every pose asked of her. She even followed my cues of our fake laugh... trust me, it's well-worth hearing!! Haha
We had so much fun touring the Lavender's land out on the East Alabama Gun Club range. It was definitely the first time we've been required to wear ear plugs for a session and worked around gunfire. ;) And, can I just say, that this girl absolutely rocked her whole session! Madison is hands down gorgeous inside and out! It was such an honor to get to capture this exciting time in her life!! Wishing you the absolute best, Madison! Enjoy this last year of High School! We can't wait to see where all your talents and hobbies take you!
I hope you enjoy a sneak into Madison's session! And, don't hesitate to leave some love! <3
