Baby Julian

Everyone is having a baby! Shooting newborns is so much fun now that I’m not super scared of them! And it’s especially fun when I’ve been looking forward to meeting the little guy for so long.

Baby Julian is the first baby I’ve shot where I’ve also shot the babies parents wedding (does that make sense?). What I’m trying to say is, I shot Gina and Joel’s wedding in October of 2006. So, this was a very special shoot for me! Gina and Joel are probably my all time favorite couple. They are fun, cute, and so in love! And they are two of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Julian is truly a very lucky little boy. Julian was just 11 days old at our shoot. He tried really, really hard to be a good boy, but modeling is a very hard job. He didn’t love the warm house, but actually loved being outside in the wind. If it weren’t considered child abuse I would say Gina and Joel should move his crib outside and then maybe they would all get some sleep :)

Gina and Joel, thank you for trusting me with such important moments in your lives. I can’t even tell you how much it means to me. You two are already such amazing parents. I can’t wait to shoot your next little one’s newborn pictures :) XOXO

Gotta love little, wrinkly newborns!





Julian started to get a little cranky so Daddy played him some tunes


Gina and Joel weren’t planning on being in any of the pictures, but I’m so glad they did.



These next two pictures are two of my most favorite pictures I’ve ever taken. Little boys and their Daddy’s…



Gina is such a natural beauty


And we can’t leave out big brother Harper!


Snoozing away on the front porch


And here’s a little slide show. The song is the same song that Joel was playing on his guitar and it’s also the song that Gina walked down the aisle to. Aren’t they the cutest???

    I love your work, but not as much as I love my new little nephew, Julian.

    I’m so happy Gina found you so that I can enjoy these tender moments all the way from Miami! I’m flying in this weekend for a 24 hour trip to meet him. Cannot wait.

    Thank you for your beautiful work. It has been a pleasure to view from the Engagement, Wedding and now Baby!
