i love halloween.
i don’t love the yucky, gory part.
but the pumpkin patch, jack-o-lantern carving, and pumpkin pie part… yes.
and most of all- i love kids in costumes.
admittedly, i start thinking about my own childrens’ costumes in the summer.
every year, bachmanville photography has a costume portrait day,
thanking clients and friends for a great year.
this year was SO much fun.
over 40 kids in one day… totally crazy, but totally wonderful.
sit back and enjoy the cuteness!
i absolutely adore it when siblings coordinate costumes. check out all these cute siblings!
super mario + princess peach
three little monkeys
cinderella & a little mouse
star wars! chewbacca, luke skywalker, and princess leia.
the little mermaid and sebastian
superman & supergirl
the costume of the day was definitely the little mermaid. you’ve already seen one… here are three more cuties
and now… more kids in costumes
what a great day!
i’m already excited about next year.
can’t wait to share my own kiddos with you on wednesday
i got to meet this sweet little family
on a warm day in old town orange.
emily is almost a year old and already walking!
our session was her first time wearing shoes and walking around outside…
all that to say- she was WAY more interested in running away from us than taking any pictures.
but even with emily on the run, we still got some great pics of this adorable family.
this family is extra special to me.
this is my big brother, my beautiful sis-in-law,
and my adorable nephews.
i love that we live close enough to see one another
and that our kids can grow up together.
they are pretty awesome…
i think it must be genetic :).
this is liam. he’s five.
he’s crazy-athletic and all sorts of spunky fun.
this is aidan. he’s eight.
he’s super smart and a mega-talented artist. and he was game mvp right before we took pics together…
basically the whole package.
(i may or may not have said the word ‘underwear’ a lot during this session to make him laugh. do what you gotta do!)
love you frazier family! xoxo
remember this family?
well sweet miles is here!
he had quite an exciting journey making it into the world…
i have no doubt there is lots of excitement ahead for this precious little boy.
while i was in davis a couple weeks ago,
i also had the opportunity to do a senior portrait session.
i LOVE doing senior portraits and haven’t been able to do any in awhile.
kylie is absolutely gorgeous, and also a ton of fun.
(did i mention that i met her when she was just starting elementary school? i feel old
one of their friends had this beautiful home with tons of land… it was a photographer’s dream!
i had such a fun evening with kylie, her mom, and her friend, meagan.
kylie, i have no doubt that you have wonderful things ahead of you.
kylie brought her cute friend, meagan, along for the session.
of course we had to take a few friend pics
these girls had me laughing all evening!
i was so glad that little ephram was born just days before my trip.
that meant i was able to take pics of him in the hospital and at his home.
but we had to do a real newborn portrait session for him too,
even though he was just three days old
(not normally when i photograph newborns… just a day or two too early!).
he wasn’t too sure if he wanted to cooperate with us,
but eventually he decided to sleep.
at 10 pounds, 10.6 ounces, he was definitely my biggest baby yet!
since i had to fly, i was able to bring limited props.
luckily, his creative mommy brought lots of things that were special and significant to their family,
which makes each of these pictures extra precious.
sweet ephram… you are loved.
oh, this baby.
his mommy and i have been friends for a long time, so i couldn’t wait to see his sweet little face.
but he made us wait… an extra 11 days!
my plane tickets were already booked, so i was worried he wasn’t going to come in time.
but he did. and he is perfect….
all 10 POUNDS and 10.6 OUNCES of him!
i got to meet him while he was still in the hospital, so of course we had to capture some of his first moments.
and then his first afternoon at home.
ephram bennett- you are an awesome “little” guy.
here is the new family still in the hospital….
and his first afternoon in his new home…..
and stay tuned… his super-cute newborn portraits will be up soon!
i’ve had the sweet opportunity to spend some time with the blanchette family lately,
first for their maternity session,
and then for little jack’s newborn session.
they are an incredible family that inspires and encourages me.
ingrid asked me to come over and take some pictures of them at home- just living life with their new little guy.
the lighting wasn’t always ideal, and the poses weren’t perfect..but this was just them. at home. together.
which makes it totally perfect. cherished moments captured.
i love the added sweetness that jack is wearing the onesie and the whole family is hanging out on the bedspread from mommy’s maternity session.
love. love. love.
