One of the main reasons that I picked up a camera was because of my tiny humans. My sweet babies. They're my whole world and the reason "why" behind everything I do. I share a lot of photos of my own kids, but they're usually posed. They are usually some creative vision that I have stuck in my head that I just have to put out into the world.They are fully styled, fully posed, and fully edited.
This year, one of my biggest goals and new year's resolutions was to capture the real-life moments in my own home. To document our lives in a real way. To create beautiful albums of how our everyday life really looks. Without the styling. Without the poses. Lifestyle photography has never been my thing. It probably won't change my business model. *If you love lifestyle, my photographer bestie ROCKS that style and I'm happy to send the referral!* But I've been inspired to do more for my own family.
These particular moments came to be because my littlest little, who is the sweetest, happiest, most laid back baby I've ever met, was playing peek-a-boo post diaper change. Her name is Monroe, but we all endearingly refer to her as Baby Roe, thanks to my 2-year-old who couldn't quite get her name right when she was born.
Her cute little face and scrunchy smile was too much to resist. I had to stick my camera all up in her face. And the results have me swooning.
Introducing my sweet Baby Roe, in all her naked, pudgy, flirty glory.
