Check out this pretty little honey. Her wee little head was too tiny to fit most of the hats that I brought to her session, but we were able to get a few pics with bows and such. When your head is as perfect as Madison’s head, you don’t really need a hat anyway. So most of the time, we did without one. The thing that occurred to me most about Madison’s parents were how relaxed and patient they were. Babies like it hot. Real hot. So for the normal adult, it’s quite uncomfortable. Plus, as babies naturally do, Madison wiggled around and moved alot. As baby photographers, you learn to go with the flow and just work with the heat and the movements. Some parents get nervous and worried that their baby is being uncooperative. Not Bob and Kim. They were way cool. Madison is a lucky little thing to have such sweet and calm parents. Here are some of the photos I got of her and her beautiful bedroom.

Is there anything sweeter than watching a grown man gently take care of his baby girl? Nope.

Congrats, Kim and Bob! Thanks again for letting me photograph your precious baby girl! -kw

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is that I get invited to some pretty important milestones in other people’s lives. Like a child’s first communion. And it really is a win-win for me and the client because Jen, who hired me to photograph her son’s first communion, doesn’t have to worry about getting photos of the day. She can just sit back and enjoy the ceremony and dinner, without the additional worry of sufficiently documenting it. These are some of the photos I took that day at the beautiful Blessed Sacrament Church in Warren, Ohio. Man, I hope to do more work in that church. It was so bright and airy in there, which is not typical of churches, as you probably know.

I love this one. The teacher was having the kids ‘practice’ holding their hands correctly in order to receive their first communion. Think he’s got it…

Here, the priest is splashing holy water on the congregation. I had to duck and weave to avoid the water. Holy or otherwise, my camera is not a fan of water. No, sir.

What do you do when you’ve had a long day and you’ve pretty much had enough? You cuddle with your Mama, that’s what.
