New big Sister!!! {Children’s Photographer St. Charles}

This blog has moved to it’s new location on the main studio website.  Please view this post and many more here:  Children’s Photographer St Charles

Guess who is about to become a big sister!  Yay, Horray.  Tomorrow is the day.  🙂

I first met this sweet little darling when she was a newborn. Unbelievably, these photos are from last week’s 18-month session.  We really did have a great time during her portrait session.  Games like peek-a-boo and Nerf balls kept everyone entertained (adults included, ha ha).  My trusty little side-kick was here too and is probably responsible for most of the great expressions that were captured.

I really do enjoy photographing toddlers.  It’s a completely different game focusing on older babies who are growing into little people.  I love when they are able to talk to me and play my games.  She sure enjoyed the baby doll and teddy bear and her own Mickey Mouse.  Dad saw the Radio Flyer mini-wagon sitting on the shelf and it was the perfect prop/play toy near the end of the session.  It really was a play-day for us; way more than just a photo session!  Chairs, toys, dolls, necklaces, wagons, stools, stuffed friends… wow, a kid’s dream!

Hee, Hee.  I call this a “stinker smile”.  Isn’t she just the cutest?

Peek-A-Boo!!  A favorite game.

My wonderful handy-man, husband made this fence (and that baby bed above).  Both worked perfectly for this photo session.  She loved hiding behind it and peeking at me!

And last, but certainly not least….  Ta Da!!!!!!!!  Here I am world.  On Friday, July 1, I become a big sister.  Watch out world.  🙂

I’m really looking forward to meeting her new little sister next week.  As you can see, this mom and dad make ADORABLE children.

So, what happens when a baby is older than 12 months and has graduated from the “Baby Steps” 1st Year Portrait Plan?  They join the “Watch Me Grow” plan which goes through age 5.  It’s a great deal if you plan to have yearly portraits done.  The plan is for 18 months, 2, 3, 4, and 5 year sessions and includes a 5×7 portrait or smaller to fit the frame of your choice.  You also get special notice of all limited edition and mini-sessions throughout the year.

This little girl has graduated from the Baby Steps plan and is now in the Watch Me Grow plan.  I get to see her every year and it just warms my heart to know that we will stay in touch all these years and beyond.

Thanks for visiting the blog!  I love to hear what you think.

Have a great weekend!
