Two are better than one: Arden Photography

Maybe it's something in the water but recently twins have been popping up everywhere!  It seems like everyday I learn about a new person who is expecting two bundles of joy.  We were so excited to photograph Caroline's baby twins for their first birthday.  I can't even image the amount of mischief these two are about to cause in the near future.  I know that this household will be filled with plenty of laughter and some adventurous days! It's always shocking to see the different personalities of twins, even at a very early age.  We can't wait to see these two grow up to become spirited toddlers.  Before you know it, we'll be photographing double dates!

Nolen's Adventure: Arden Photography

What an exciting time to be a toddler!  I had such a great day with Nolen frolicking around the gardens and taking a few photos here and there.  Nolen came prepared with his mother and grandmother for a full day of photography adventure.   It took him a minute to warm up to me by the end of the session, we were definitely best friends.  This shy but adventurous toddler really knows how to work the camera! His killer smile and gorgeous eyes really made my job that much easier.  I can't wait until next year's session and thank you Nolen for showing this girl how to really have an amazing day of fun.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from the session.  I hope you love them as much as we do!

Spencer Kids: Arden Photography

How stinking adorable are these faces?! Capturing kids in their natural element - whether it is at home, at the ball field, or the playground - it's easiest to snap real smiles when they're comfortable and "at home." And the cool thing about this shoot was that we did take these shots at their home. They wanted to show me a little bit of everything they love doing, and I was amazed at how well they got along together, being siblings and all! Cute kids alert for sure! 

Michael L. Kimble II: Arden Photography

Michael is back! And this year, his portrait theme is "hip hop." Every time we are around this cutie, we can't stop smiling and laughing. Michael exudes so much self-confidence, and absolute smoothness, that we dare anyone not to smile just by looking at these photos. He has an energy we can't get enough of, and we look forward to shooting his self-chosen themed portraits every year! Take a look back at previous years and you can see for yourself what I mean!

Family Portraits: Arden Photography

Family portraits are some of our favorite shoots to do! We love getting to know the family and watching the kids grow up over time as we often photograph the family more than once. We met Melissa at the Botanical Gardens with her two adorable children - I mean look at that red hair! Like mother, like daughter, right? 

Fall comes and goes so quickly around here! Be sure to book your fall family portraits now!

Jamie Wilson: Holiday Portraits

It’s beginning to look a lot like the Holidays, especially around the Wilson household. The trees are decorated, the presents are wrapped and there’s a special gift that arrived a few days ago. Charlee Kate is now the big sister to a beautiful baby brother, Beckham. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of photographing the dynamic duo for their holiday portraits. Charlee Kate is such an amazing big sister! I had a wonderful time and I can’t wait to do it again next year!
