It seems like just yesterday, I was photographing sweet baby Alex for her newborn session.  Her session was at her home, on a chilly and cloudy fall day.  We thankfully were able to take advantage of all of the windows in their gorgeous sun room.  She had strong opinions about posing that day, and truthfully, her opinions led to some of my favorite newborn images, ever.  She posed herself, let me know when she thought my ideas were bananas, and was happiest cuddled up with mom or dad.  She knew what she wanted, and frankly, most babies do.  They may be tiny, but they are quite opinionated.   Alex just celebrated her first birthday, and I love meeting back up with families for such a big milestone to see how their little loves have grown, and changed, and developed their personalities!  She still has opinions, and is still a very strong-willed little girl.  I love her for it.  It will serve her quite well as she grows up.  She feels big–loves playing, loves exploring, adores her mommy, cherishes her daddy, and loves food.  We took advantage of all of her big preferences, and because of that, we were able to capture Alex exactly as she is at one-year-old.  Super active, incredibly curious, and full of love and smiles.  She also has quite the affinity for the song, Wheels on the Bus.  She’s basically toddler perfection, bundled up in this little blonde-haired, blue-eyed, precious little girl.  I hope you enjoy this little peek into Alex’s session, and be sure to check out the short family film from her session as well!

Family films are now available to all clients as an independent session, or as an add-on to full photo sessions!  I’d love to chat with you soon about scheduling your session!  Contact me today!

When a session includes sisters, cousins, and handsome husbands, it’s impossible not to be excited to share the highlights with you!  This session was extra special, as it included two beautiful families, and an incredible private setting.  You’ll likely recognize my little friend Ben–he and I have gotten pretty friendly during our sessions over the last two years.  I first met his mom, Jenny, at her local fitness studio, and was happy to help her document her pregnancy with a maternity session.  Once their sweet boy Ben made his early debut, we captured some beautiful moments during his newborn shoot.   During his first year, we met up for a six-month milestone session, and then celebrated his first birthday with an incredible first-birthday session!  I truly look forward to my sessions with this family, because they’re such upbeat, positive, and genuinely kind people.  Ben is a ball of two-year-old energy now, and I love it.

This time, Ben brought along his adorable cousin Dylan, and his amazing parents.  Jenny and Katy’s parents live on a gorgeous piece of property in our area, complete with woods, a small lake, an awesome beach, and peaceful views of it all.  The setting might look familiar, because Ben’s first birthday shoot was also held at this same location.  Ben and Dylan couldn’t have been any cuter, or any more fun, and their parents are all truly wonderful people.

We moved a LOT during this session, and I loved it, because it’s exactly what I desire from my sessions–especially with babies and toddlers.  Let’s be honest, we all know that toddlers want to do anything but sit.  These boys were no exception.  Although Dylan is just mastering crawling, by Christmas I’m sure he’ll be hot on Ben’s heels.  We explored, we played, we imagined, we found gorgeous pockets of light, the boys dipped their feet in the water, and then their diapers–it was an amazing late-summer evening, and I wish we could do it all again next week.

I hope you enjoy this little peek into our session.  Be sure to check out the short family film at the conclusion of this post–family films are now available to families as an independent session, or as an add-on to full sessions!  If you’re interested in booking your own family photo and/or film session, I’d love to talk with you!  Be sure to visit the Information tab above for details about a session with me, and contact me here or via email at karen@karenlintonphotography.com if you have any questions, or when you’re ready to book!

Patrick and Emerson have reached another milestone, and are quickly approaching another.  If we take a trip down memory lane, I first met these adorable babies for their newborn session.  Since then, we’ve documented their growth at three months, and six months with in-home milestone sessions.  We met up just a few weeks ago for their 9 Month Milestone Session, and we’re already planning their first birthday session!  Yikes!  When I visited Patrick and Emerson at their home this time around, they were both sitting up, dancing, and trying to tell me stories.  They  have new little teeth, and they are ready to start chasing their big brothers and big sister.  They’re still full of smiles, they still adore their mom and dad, and of course they’re still the cutest things you’ve ever seen.  I love our in-home sessions, because we can see the progression of their growth over the last three months.  And also, of course, staying in their own home means their sessions are quick, and once I’ve worn them out, the babies can get back to napping.

Mini–Milestone sessions are exclusive to my amazing clients who have booked a full session in the past year.  Interested in a session for your family?  I’d love to earn the opportunity to be your Lansing MI Photographer!  Be sure to click on over to the Home page, and browse around!  Don’t miss the Information page, and be sure to Contact me to schedule your session!  Thanks again for stopping by, and enjoy this little peek into Patrick and Emerson’s 9-Month Milestone Session!

I am so excited to share this latest lifestyle session with you.  When twins turn one, it’s kind of a big deal!  It was one of my absolute favorite sessions to date, and that can be attributed to the gorgeous weather, but also to having amazing clients to hang out with, ahem, work with.  This was our fourth session to document their growth in just over a year, and I have enjoyed every moment of being their Lansing MI Photographer.  I knew right from the start that these parents were at the top of their game–they wanted their babies to have nothing but the best, and that included who would document their first year of life.  That’s why it was an absolute honor when they selected me, and I’m being completely honest when I say that it’s been my pleasure to work with them.

We started our year-long journey off with a Maternity Session last year.  It was a gorgeous evening, with beautiful light.  Shortly thereafter, the twins made their debut, and I visited them at home for their In-Home Newborn Session!  A few months later, we documented their new little personalities with a Mini-Milestone Session, also in their home.  As an appropriate bookend to this last year, we went back outside to take advantage enjoy the warm temperatures, beautiful greenery, and opportunity for the twins to explore until their little hearts were content.  These two little cuties celebrated their first birthday just a few days after their session, and have stolen my heart for a lifetime.

The days are long, but the years are short…isn’t that how the saying goes?  When I have the honor of working with a family from birth to birthday, I’m always amazed at how quickly the emails come, ready to schedule another milestone session.  I’m even more amazed when I stop by a home to see adorable babies I feel like I just saw yesterday, and find out just how busy they’ve been growing into big little people since I saw them last!  Patrick and Emerson recently celebrated their 6-month milestone, and they’re busy little bees these days–they have a lot to say, smiles for days, and have settled into a nice little routine with naps and all!  I’m sure you remember this adorable duo from their In-Home Newborn Session, and their 3-Month Milestone Session–scroll on down to check out the highlights from this most recent session!  And of course, if you’re interested in scheduling your own In-Home Session, head on over to the Home page to start browsing around my site.  Be sure to check out the Information page as well, and send me a message using the Contact page!  I’d love the opportunity to be your Lansing MI Photographer!  Thanks for stopping by!
