Kaylee & Cavan are 7 months! | A Denver Twin Milestone Story

Man, I love twins!! I really, really do. I also love milestone sessions; babies that were barely eyes open when I met them are now funny and interested and full of new tricks and sounds. 

These two were actually my only birth in 2015 and I spent a full 12 hours capturing the intense and amazing day of their coming into the world. I then made their newborn portraits in the peace and love of their home. So, I was pretty excited to see them and all the milestones they've conquered.

When I asked mom to list off which things she wanted to focus on for the milestone with Kaylee & Cavan, she said that she wanted it to just reflect day to day life with the twins. So we captured breakfast, tubby time and playtime. And man, these kids are CUTE.

A year in Portraits : Mavis Rae | Denver Childhood Photography

Last year, I ran a short lived (and ill thought out) Group On campaign. I didn't really do much advertising at the time and thought, this will be great! It turned out to be great for one reason: meeting Mavis, Neon & Connor.  This little family has been a muse for my year, a joy to work with and a wonderful light in my business.

The joy and love in this little family of three has been contagious. Mom, Neon, always takes care with every session to dress everyone in the perfect not-matching-but-coordinating outfits. Dad, Connor, is always full of hugs, laughs and jokes and of course little Mavis is busy being her hilarious and adorable self. 

When Neon first came in for her consult, she was planning on the Group On deal: a family session with 2 prints. We hit it right off and knew we had to do a First Year plan. Unfortunately for me, Mavis was already 3 months old when we met, so I didn't get the joy of her newborn session. I did, however, get 5 sessions over the course of the next 9 months since mom wisely took advantage of the 50$ minis ( a special bonus for being in the first year plan). Watching Mavis grow this year is truly beautiful to me. I'm genuinely sad that I won't see her every few months, I'm going to miss them. 

 

Mavis is getting her ABC book soon ( in print as I write this) and it's TOO DARLING.

Another beautiful and unique perk of the First Year plan for me is watching parents growing into their parenthood. Dads becoming confident and bold with their little babies, relaxing into tossing them high and roughly snuggling them after trembling during the newborn session while just holding that precious bundle. Moms embracing the struggle and joy of being the source for their little one; the well of comfort, food, rest and reassurance. Women becoming the mothers they couldn't imagine while holding a screaming infant for the 4th hour in row.

Thank you Neon, Connor and Mavis for giving my a corner in your first year, for sharing the joy, the milestones, the love with me.

Mavis is 10 months | A Denver Lifestyle Baby Session

I met Mavis way back in the summer when her mom booked me for a one year plan. Unfortunately, Mavis had already missed me for her newborns but we did a milestone right away.  Then we waited a bit to grab her next big changes which led us right to her 10 month mark.

I love checking in with my one year planners because it's so much fun to see them change and grow, develop new skills and show off their new tricks.  Mavis has certainly developed a lot of personality in the last few months!!

It was super brisk out so we ran back home and Mavis had a quick out fit change. The sun came out and was streaming through their front window; I couldn't help myself, I asked dad to PLEASE move the couch. We grabbed some gorgeous portraits by the window while little Mavis just explored.

This was our second in home session ( we've done a few mini's along the way also) and I begged and pleaded with mom to let me make some sink tub portraits.  We had both agreed to tubby images but mom was VERY hesitant to use her sink. I basically overruled her because the light was perfection and I think that images made of sink tubs are timeless classics that we all should have.

It was such a great morning spent with this family; everyone was full of love and I genuinely cannot wait for Mavis' one year!!!!
