How I love Watch Me Grow!  I love it even more when I get a sibling from a previous Watch Me Grow!  This is handsome { t } and he’s four weeks old and oh so chunky and sweet.  We had a styled maternity session scheduled for mama but she ended up going into labor before we could do them, so we did a styled newborn session!  Gown is by Sew Trendy Accessories.  He was born on the July 5th and his daddy is military so a patriotic themed newborn session was perfect!  I custom ordered new props just for this session so mama would have something perfect for him!

The birthday session for my Watch Me Grow clients are always bittersweet.  I thoroughly enjoy having the opportunity to see my littlest clients every few months and seeing all the big changes that happen.  This is sweet little { e }.  She has Colombian roots and always has the biggest smile on her face every time I see her.  Her mama always has a very specific vision for her sessions and its always an adventure!  Today was nothing short of that!  With rain threatening, I got a call in the morning about moving her session five hours before we were scheduled.  I agreed and I zipped down to Colorado just in time to see my beautiful client running all over a farm setting up all these props she designed, planned and made all herself.  She told me three months ago that she knew exactly what she wanted to do for { e }’s cake smash since she couldn’t have dairy.  Seriously, mama MADE all of this herself.  I showed up with a vintage wagon and a bubble gun, that was it.  She planned everything herself and it was absolutely PERFECT!!!!

 

Take a look and enjoy!

These sessions are the first among my limited edition sessions.  This has been a long process of planning, location scouting, prop searching and nailing down the specifics on how it needs to be done.  My dad is my biggest helper and is usually at my sessions with me.  I don’t know why he would be willing to traipse all over Wyoming and Colorado with me, but he does and he always nails it.  He’s usually the one you’ll hear me say built this and built that or holding my youngest daughter along with my lighting.  Lately he’s usually knee deep in the river with me and always has a smile on his face.  This session has taken hours of designing and planning and none of it would be possible without my dad.  So if you see him, give him a big high five!  He deserves it.

I was growing increasingly anxious as we drove down and started prepping for the session.  We had to put together the whole contraption that my dad had a big part in planning with drops of rain splattering here and there.  As the hours ticked on, my stomach started knotting.  What if I failed them?  I hadn’t tested this session yet, like I typically do with my own girls to make sure I am at the top of my game when I have a client.  What if I completely bombed this session and my vision wasn’t fulfilled?  What if my sweet client hated it?  What if I completely let her down?

I have to say, I really love the result.  Even if we got rained out.  Even if the river was super chilly because of all the rain they’ve gotten the last few days.  Her children were absolutely adorable and were fearless.

This little dude came into the studio this morning for his vintage airplane themed session and it was so cute!!  He wasn’t in the mood for cake but we made the best of it and still got some really cute shots!  His sister was begging for some cake and they got to take the whole thing home with them!

This mama came to me for her consult and we designed this session together!  She is due in a few weeks with her sweet little rainbow baby!  She came to me wanting to do smoke bombs, which I fell in love doing back in May with my daughter’s rainbow baby birthday session.  I love the look of the bombs and everything they represent!  This new location I have in Fort Collins has quickly become a favorite of my client’s and mine.  This sweet couple nailed their session!!
