Tyce + Family at Waveland – Lexington KY Family Photographer – Spring Mini Session

Life is funny sometimes. I met one of my husbands friends while she and I were pregnant and we kept running into each other after that first meeting. I saw her at the hospital and at a wedding I was shooting and right before they headed to the hospital to have their sweet little one, Tyce.  So I was thrilled when I got the message that she wanted to take advantage of my Spring Mini Sessions.

We met at Waveland on a beautiful Sunday and Tyce did a great job! Working with little ones can be difficult, because you never know what kind of mood they’re going to be. I’ve learned from my own that you have to be super patient and let them do their thing! If you push too hard, they will run away faster! So, we let Tyce do his thing! This little boy did not want to be held down for one second, but when we let him play and explore he enjoyed himself and I think we came out on the other side with some awesome shots (even a few of the whole family)!

I love the shot above so much! Tyce is very careful about where he walks, and he watches almost every step. I think I love it so much because it’s the complete opposite of my own little girl who runs everywhere without paying one bit of attention to her little feet!

I am always so blown away by the way parents look at their children! It gets me every time. Ultimately, I am grateful for these moments because it makes my job so worthwhile. Being able to preserve those moment, those hugs and gentle kisses, the hugs and sweet smiles, that’s why I love photography!

This last photo I feel sums up our session one hundred percent! Tyce just wanted to run and be free!

Juliana’s Easter Photos | Lexington KY Photographer

Tonight I wanted to share Juliana’s Easter Photos with you! We took her out on a beautiful evening and spent the night chasing her around in her pretty little dress! She has such a passion for everything, she needs to know what everything is and what is happening with everything all around her! I watch her, and I hope this curiosity that she has never fades!

We have so much fun watching her and chasing her and playing with her. And we never for one second take for granted how blessed we are to have such a beautiful, happy, healthy little one!

I hope you all had a beautiful and blessed Easter Sunday, and that you too are awestruck by your little ones!

The Mom Project 2015, A Personal Project – Lexington, KY Portrait Photographer

I started a journey last year, and on this journey I have met so many amazing Moms who have encouraged and inspired me for a whole year now!

Lexington Ky Photographer

I shared my struggle with missing my own Mother as I became a Mother myself, and how I mourned the fact that there aren’t a lot of photos of me and my Mom. I asked New Mom’s around the Bluegrass to share their stories with me, and I chose 5 deserving Moms. How did I chose them you ask…  Let me tell you, it was not easy! I read everyone’s story over and over again, and I picked the stories that moved me the most! Stories of loss, and love beyond measure, stories of grief and loneliness, stories of new beginnings and hope, everyone has a story and everyone’s story is beautiful!

These five women and their families allowed me to come into their homes and capture precious moments between them and their sweet young babies. Now these babies are all walking around and jabbering nonstop and I have had the privileged to witness it all through social media, but as I looked back on the sessions for this post, I was struck again by what love a mother share with her baby (or babies – as the case my be).

Please read my story HERE and then share your own beautiful story with me here in the comment section below or email me at elizabeth@eaphotog.com if you’d like to keep your story more private! Let me know what you cherish most about being a new mom and why you’re interested in this project! Because my little girl will be 18 months old soon, I’ll open it up to New Mom’s of a newborn up to 18 months old! I am so looking forward to finding The 2015 Mom’s for the Mom Project!
