Sometimes amidst all of the nerves, excitement and hustle and bustle of life you have to take a second to stop, breathe deep, take in the moment, capture a memory, and remember what it feels like in this moment. This is the moment before their lives changed forever. The moment before they found a love they never knew. This is the moment before 2 became 3.
I know these are a little late, since I’ve already posted the birth and day 2 & 3. I’m just getting my film scans in, so there are many more on the way, including Genevieve’s first studio session at one week old.
Ashley’s one request was to get some images of Gabe in his uniform so that is exactly where we started. My challenge for this session was to shoot mostly film so that is exactly what I did. There are only 6 digital images in this post, can you spot them?
Ashley & Gabe, it was so fun getting to know the two of you and chatting about life for hours. You both have the sweetest spirit, perhaps this is why we were granted such gorgeous light and the perfect closing shot of the Henrietta taking an evening cruise on the river to close out the last roll!
My good friend, Hannah, has two of the most adorable children. During their latest visit, I spent about 20 minutes in the park (just a couple of doors down from my house) photographing them with my Contax 645 and a couple rolls of Kodak Portra 400 film.
A super cloudy Thursday afternoon + some film to shoot + a pregnant model + a white scooter + a cuddly dachshund = the below shots. I can’t believe it’s only 19 days until my sweet niece will be here. Amanda, you look amazing!
I’m giddy, pure giddy to show you these images. There is nothing quite like shooting for your own family and friends to develop a set of images you are excited to show off. I’ve been holding onto these for a couple of weeks. Waiting on film to arrive, then to make the perfect pairings, and pick just the right moment to launch them onto the world wide web. In late April I’m expecting my first niece, Genevieve Hope Holloman. She’s already managed to wiggle her way into my heart right alongside my nephew, Gavin.
For this shoot, we searched to find a brand new location and hoped for baby animals. We were incredibly blessed to find a beautiful pair of newborn lambs and the sweetest person on earth to let us use her farm, our new friend, Faye of Old McFaye’s Farm. Enjoy your introduction to a little piece of how wonderful life is as Brent & Amanda’s wait on little Vie to arrive!
We made new friends in the process of the session. You can be their friend too, like Old McFaye’s Farm on Facebook.
