If you have scheduled a session with me and I offer an evening time slot, PUH-LEASE take it. Why??? Because you get light like this….
This session had actually been rescheduled two times before we got to this GLORIOUS autumn evening. Mother Nature rained on our parade the first time, and then we had a slight wardrobe malfunction the second time (i.e. baby girl’s outfit went missing!). Third time’s a charm, right??? YEP.What could I possibly say about this family that I haven’t already? I’ve photographed them several times, been there for many milestones (see here and here!), but most importantly, they are great friends of ours. They are witty, funny, happy and just make you feel good to be around. Mom has also been a HUGE help to me the past few months by assisting with several of my shoots. She’s got a way with kids and makes my job easier so I can focus on my camera and getting the shots I want, while she gets the smiles and giggles out of my adorable subjects, and she’s been a helpful pair of second hands during newborn shoots too.
The autumn light on this particular evening was just.plain.perfect.
Look at these handsome boys. Gah. Mom will probably tear up seeing these… I’m not exactly sure when they grew up so much, but as they say, ‘in the blink of an eye’ this can happen.
S is such a ham. I am in love with these shots of him. For a funny look back at two years ago, check this out.
I hope this ends up as a huge canvas on their wall or displayed in an Organic Bloom frame somewhere in their home. This will be filed into my ‘all time favorites’ folder for sure.
We really wanted to come up with some creative ideas for the three kids, and what better way than to have the boys act like thugs?? 🙂 In all seriousness, they LOVE their little sister, and there is no doubt in my mind that they will look out for her for the rest of their lives. If you mess with her, you mess with them 🙂 You might be thinking, ‘wow, there’s not a lot of individual shots of that beautiful baby’. Well, you would think that from this post, but check out her 6 month session here. If you follow my work, you know she had her own shoot prior to this, so we made sure the boys got a little face time at this session (though I did sneak in some of her like the one below, but really, can you blame me?? )
C Family, you guys totally rocked this shoot from the outfits, to the poses, to the fun we had. Hope you enjoyed your sneak peeks. xoxo
A little Rebecca Cote Photography PSA…
I’ve had several requests lately, so if you’re looking at these photos and thinking, ‘aw, I want fall photos done too!’ unfortunately, my schedule is full (and has been for a while) for the remainder of 2013. I cringe every time I turn someone away, but sadly, there are just not enough hours in the day, week, or year for me to fit everyone in. My family is my number one priority which is why I take only a limited amount of sessions per month, in addition to fact that this is not my full-time job. For those that have asked that I just ‘squeeze’ them in, please know that the work I put into a session goes WAY beyond the time it takes for the actual shoot, in fact the shooting time is the shortest part of the process. The hours I spend editing, blogging, prepping final galleries and fulfilling orders are the majority of my work and that is where my schedule becomes extremely tight. In addition, every.single.session is important to me, and I want to make sure I give you the best images and attention that I can, taking more sessions than I know I can handle could potentially impact the consideration and attention I like giving to all of my images and clients. In the meantime, I really do appreciate those people that continue to follow my work even if I haven’t been able to get you on calendar, and I expect that there will be some changes for Rebecca Cote Photography in 2014, so stay tuned!
