This was the first year in which I specialized in maternity, birth, newborn, and baby portraiture. The result was having to turn down family photography requests - the hardest were those clients who have used me in the past and wanted to return. After looking over the family sessions I did in 2011, I wonder if that was a good choice. LOL! I love my families - they are always so well-coordinated and beautiful and I just love making connections with them. There are so many more that I could have chosen for this blog post, and I hope I don't offend anyone by choosing. I went with a variety - big families, siblings, colorful, black & white, etc.
While my first love will always be the time surrounding the birth of a new baby, I will always try to make room in my schedule for my favorite growing families whenever possible! Here are my favorites from 2011. For each one, I could tell a story....but I won't. I'll let the images speak for themselves!
