This family one of our families closest friends in the area and I am so blessed and adore that they choose me to capture their growing family and fill their walls with all the special memories. I started photographing them as a family of three with their gorgeous pups. It was very much meant to happen that this session took place when it did and that we included their dogs. Very sadly, shortly after their first session, they lost their sweet Kora. It was a hard loss for the Kirk family as she was part of their family.
As soon as the Kirk family found out they were expecting their second child, they reached out to do a gender reveal session! I absolutely love gender reveal sessions so that was a great way to kick off the journey of welcoming baby number 2.
The idea of a baby sibling was foreign to little miss Ambree since she had been an only child up to this point. You can only hope that the transition from one child to two will go smooth and that they will love each other endlessly. Ambree was going to have a baby sister and it was so exciting. Next up was capturing the beauty of pregnancy.
Ashley makes pregnancy look so beautiful. She was nothing short of stunning in her maternity photos. While at this point Ambree knew that she was going to have a baby sister, she didn't know exactly what that meant. She seemed to have the idea that her baby sister was going to come into the world ready to run around and play. None the less, she already loved her!
They were all incredibly smitten when welcoming brand new baby Autumn. She was so full of life from day one and is such a good baby. Big shocker to Ambree, her baby sister didn't come out ready to play. She quickly learned to be gentle and is trying to learn to be patient. There two girls have their daddy wrapped around their fingers.
We did mini milestone sessions throughout Autumns first year to capture bits and pieces of her growing and changing. My favorite part of these sessions were getting to see just how much her little personality was developing. With gorgeous weather and a sitting and very active baby girl we added the whole family into her 9 month session.
Our most recent session together was Autumns One year photos... Thats right. She is already a year old. Time sure flies by and the little one grow and change so fast!! We had a blast with her one year photos, a few glamour shots, a cake smash, and a bath to clean up!
