What are the odds, that two set of twin boys would be born with in just weeks of each-other and end up neighbors? Both sets are very loved little miracles. Both sets are silly, cute boys. Both sets have a bigger calmer brother, and a slightly smaller more bold brother. Really what are the odds! The first set of twins happen to be my nephews, so when their neighbors called to schedule a session before the holidays I jumped at the chance. We had a lovely time chatting about baby boys, playing with the little guys and taking some fun photos.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Tony & Davone thanks again for having me into your home, your little guys were just adorable. I had a great time working with all of you. I hope your travels went well too. I will have the whole set for you very soon!

Sweet Cecilia was 3 weeks old when we got together for our session. Slightly older than I like for a newborn session, but this sweet little girl was perfect for me. She sleep like an angel, and even smiled for me a bit. You can tell she is very loved and comfy in her new world. Being that she was born so close to the holidays, we had to work in some festive shots. Here mom and dad clearly adore this little lady, it was my pleasure to point my camera at this little family.

Here are a few of my favorites so far:

Andrea thanks again for having me out to capture your baby girl and family. You all were wonderful to work with. I will be done with the whole set very soon. I hope you have enjoyed your sneak peek. Of course you are familiar with my love of blog challenges as you have been roped into them in the past by your coworker Amy. πŸ˜‰ If you can get 30 people to comment on this blog postΒ  I will throw in a set of darling little brag books on the house.

What can I say about Sawyer. He is 5, wickedly funny, super smart, and simply adorable.

It has been baby season here at emily g, so it was a fun change to work with a slightly bigger, little person for a bit. Sawyer was SO good for me. He was the perfect mixture of crazy & thoughtful. He was also full to the brim with character as you can see with the many, many faces you will see below. I really had a wonderful time hanging out with him and his family. I always say my sessions are more of a play-date than a formal photo session, and this one really was all play.

Check out a few of my favorites so far:

Candice thanks again for bringing Sawyer into the studio to see me. He was an absolute doll! I had a great time meeting all of you. I hope you like your sneak peek. I will have the whole set done very soon. FOr now I would love to offer you a big of a blog contest. For all my new clients I like to do a little challenge. If you can get 30 people to comment on this post, I will throw in a set of darling little brag books. So have fun!

The album process is really a team effort. It is really important to me that the couple really loves and has final approval over an album design before it goes to print. The images inside are my work, but really it is the couple that will share this book with their kids & grand-kids. For that reason some times an album can take a few months to finalize. April & Brian got married back in warm sunny July. It was a stunning day at the Camas Meadows Country Club. Their wedding was filled with love, emotion, great friends and a tight-knit family. I had an amazing time capturing their day, and even more fun reliving it through the album design process. I am so proud of the resulting book. It came in today and looks amazing! I almost don’t want to give it up. πŸ˜‰ But of course today it will go to the post office and on to the happy couple. April & Brian thanks again for having me out to capture your day. It really was my pleasure to point my camera at you! I have loved working with you two, and wish you all the happiness in the wold.

It’s apparently cute baby season around here at emily g photography!

Today I have yet another adorable little girl to show off. Lovely little Lael was so good for me. Sweet, goofy (oh that tongue!) and simply adorable. Mom, Dad and grandma were all kind as well. We had a great time chatting in the studio as we captured the little princess in all her glory. She is a stylish little diva with some amazing hats, accessories and outfits, but of course with Mommy working in the clothing industry. This babies little smile and sweet little face could brighten any day. I know Mama is traveling for work right now, so I hope they warm her heart while she is so far away from home!

Here are a few of my favorites from our session together.

Jen thanks again for coming down to the studio and sharing your little lady with me. She was a complete doll! I hope you like your sneak peek and it makes your travel time away from your baby girl a little more bearable. I will have the whole gallery for you very soon. For now I would love to offer you a blog challenge. For all my new clients I offer a blog contest. If you can get 30 people to comment on this little blog post I will throw in a set of those darling little brag books. So friends & family leave some love for this adorable little babe.
