This beautiful family of four has served as my unofficial models for wedding, family, newborn, and childhood portraits over the past six years. How amazing is that?! It seems like just yesterday I photographed Brian and Kristy’s lovely wedding on Keuka Lake back in 2012. Soon, their first baby girl was born, and I had the privilege of documenting her first year every three months. Not long after, I was so ecstatic to have another opportunity to see baby #2 transform before my eyes. It’s been a fun adventure with you, Reed Family!
The Reed family is always up for new places and ideas. We’ve photographed in their home, the streets of High Falls, Highland Park and everywhere in between. They always look amazing, and Mom knows how to style them in perfectly adorable outfits every time. It’s amazing to see the Now the girls are both past their first years, but I still get to see and catch up with them yearly. I can’t believe the girls can have conversations with me now (well, baby Emme sounds like she’s carrying on a dialogue, especially with her precious facial expressions).
For the most recent photo shoot, we updated the annual family portraits and did baby Emme’s one-year cake smash. I love the girls’ simple, pretty white dresses. They looked so cute as they explored the area with bare feet together. And Emme’s floral cake smash dress looked precious on her.
This is one special family, and I’m so honored to photograph them yearly. I can’t wait for the next time! I’m sure the girls will each seem like a foot taller.
Want to start a yearly family portrait tradition? I’d love to help you decorate your walls with smiling faces. Get in touch with me—I’d love to hear from you!
