Rascal : Julian!

March.17.2009 | Rascals

The last time I had a photoshoot with Julian, he was in his mommy’s belly. He is now almost a year old and is the most adorable thing ever! The minute he saw me he smiled..what can I say, I’m irresistable! ;-)

Gina contacted me for some family/maternity/rascal shots since she is expecting another little one very soon..if you couldn’t already tell :-) Julian’s baby sister is due on his 1st birthday…what are the odds right?

I’ll be capturing little Julian’s first birthday party next month so stay tuned for some more Julian-cuteness!

How cute is their family?!

Julian looks just like his daddy!

I love this one :-)

So cute!!

How beautiful is Gina?!

I love this shot of Gina and Julian!

I was so delighted when Julie emailed me…she and I went to highschool together (we discovered that after she emailed me). We had a class together and I remembered having a great time chatting with her and her friends…she was a freshman when I was a junior. While I won’t able to shoot her wedding I was very happy that I could shoot her bridal portraits for her and her fiance Robert.

LOL..Robert has a “thing” about smiling..he doesn’t like to do it :-) So, I tried my very darndest to get him to smile and he just would bust up laughing instead..there is no grey area with him..it’s all or nothing baby! Even without smiles, Robert and Julie make a beautiful couple and looked absolutely beautiful together!

Julie and Robert..thanks so much for having me play a small part in your wedding! I hope we found a “winner” for your bridal portrait! Congrat’s on your wedding next month!

Now for some favorites!

Julie looked so beautiful!

Robert is smiling with his eyes..can’t you tell??!!

Love this..

Oh how I love the next series of shots!

I loved the backlight here…so glorious!

When Julie contacted me, she specifically said she liked all of my “couples under a tree” shots..I hope this one will do Julie!
