I first photographed Hetty & Branden when they became engaged – and I just photographed Reno 2 year portraits of their sweet baby girl!
When I first set out to photograph weddings, “staying with” a family as they grow was always my dream from the get-go. And this family has fulfilled my wish!
Just take a look at all the events I’ve photographed for them:
Hetty & Branden’s engagement & wedding (back before I re-branded)
Alyssa’s Newborn Portraits
Alyssa’s 6 Month Portraits
Alyssa’s 1 Year Portraits
And now….Alyssa’s 2 Year Portraits!
It’s been amazing to document these many wonderful times for this family! And it was so good to see them after a whole year has passed.
The last time we saw each other was RIGHT when I was allowed to start working again after the original pandemic shutdowns. Alyssa has grown SO MUCH.
This sweet girl always has the most adorable outfits, which you can see by looking at our previous sessions. I absolutely love all of her ensembles!
Near the end of our session, Alyssa wasn’t totally feeling the photos anymore. Can you blame a two-year-old? Of course not! Luckily, I found that she enjoys watching things fly – so I threw my stuffed duck at my own head. Hetty then brought out Alyssa’s special pig and she had a BLAST throwing that poor piggy all over the place. The whole thing produced my favorite photos of the whole session.
I also want to applaud Alyssa for giving me some wonderful smiles for her Reno 2 year portraits even though I’m wearing a mask – thank you, sweet girl!
And we’ll end with this inspiring life lesson from Alyssa: when things just seems hard, throw a pig in the air and walk away like it ain’t no thing.
