I seriously can not believe Aubrey is ONE!

I’ve been watching her grow before my camera since her mom’s maternity session!  AND How freaking awesome is it.. that they make the drive from Virginia to see me for each milestone…. OMG… I am going to miss them now that she is one!

It’s so awesome having a job where clients turn friends… and you capture memories that will always be a part of these families lives!

Now…. go eat up her cuteness!

Oh yea, Have a little one you would like a Cake Smash session for? Ask me about my Cake Smash session!  You can even add the custom cake and balloons provided by me!

Cake for this session provided by Sugar Rush

I am so bad at blogging!  I’ve been telling my husband lately that I have to get back to trying to blog several times a week.  I get so focused in getting clients their galleries… I forget that others could enjoy them as much as I do.  It only felt fitting to start back my blogging with Livia’s Milk Bath Maternity session!

Livia chose me as her photographer several years ago when I did her first Maternity session.  I would then capture her newborn through first year milestone sessions with her sweet daughter Keely…. each session more epic than the previous!  Watching Keely grow as I watched my art grow.  Of course I was eager to capture Livia’s 2nd pregnancy.  When she made the announcement on her Facebook… I sat back in anticipation… never wanting to pressure or quilt anyone into choosing me as their photographer… and then it happened!!!  I can not begin to say how much of an honor it is to get to capture families as they grow…. to be chosen again… Livia and her family are now Phlattery family… they are my family!  I can not wait to meet this next little princess!  Ya’ll stay tuned for that session!

Now, here are just a few of the MANY favorites I have from her session!  You wouldn’t know it was hard to get schedule because we got rained out… you wouldn’t know Keely wasn’t in the picture taken mood… and that it was so hot that all of us where smiling through the discomfort.  You wouldn’t know that a storm was rolling in as we wanted that great window lighting for the milk bath and the window shots!  Again, another epic session with Livia and her beautiful growing family!

If you are pregnant or know some one who is… I would love to talk with you!  My schedule fills quickly so book fast!  I currently have a maternity special running!  15% off any Maternity package booked and paid in full at booking!  Save even more by booking your maternity session with a newborn session! Just ask me for more details!

I have been wanting to do this session for over a year now… and so glad I made time to do it and will add it to the Photo Phlattery Limited Edition Minis schedule.

wmPhlattery-21 copywmPhlattery-25 copy

Here are just a few I grabbed to edit quickly of my youngest 2 daughters test shooting the session.

Even though this session had been in my head for over a year… I put it all together the day of.  You see, I had some clients going to do the test shoot with me the weekend prior and it was just too cold to get little ones wet.  However, we had a beautiful Monday.  I messaged the location that day and asked if I could work around my schedule and clear up that evening…would they be free too!

I ran to Walmart (lol)… brought some rain boots and bathing suits to match… and off we went.

I knew I wanted these of my girls too…. but had planned to do it later… so I had nothing for them to wear.  Believe it or not, my kids always end up being the last to get their pictures taken… Unless it’s a test shoot.

I am so glad I went a head and did this with them.  A quick session and I have 40 images of my kids that I just can’t let go of.  I normally only keep 3-4 images tops… when I do test shoots with my girls.  If I kept them all… I would need lots of extra hard drives.

These though… the laughter… the fun… the children being children… I can’t let them go… I will cherish these forever… smiles that can be faked or forced when you are jumping in puddles and getting nice and dirty.

Here are just a few I chose quickly to share with you guys!

If you want to create these memories too… see the details at the bottom of this post.
