Sugar and Spice...Snips and Snails | Priscilla Baierlein Photography {KY Child and Family Photographer}

Never a dull moment with this family! The kiddos keep me on my toes and laughing the whole time :) And I love every minute of it! So...I asked them to meet me at this field of buttercups (although I kept calling them tulips :)). Rayson got out of the car and said "I hate flowers". I thought "uh-oh". I always want children to be themselves and to be happy and have fun with the location, so of course, I want them to be happy with it. I think he had a lot more fun when we moved away from the flowers and to the playground :) However, my favorite picture of the session is definitely this first one. It cracks me up!!! Notice...he is surrounded by flowers :)


Look at those eyes!







I love when she makes this face! She curls up her nose and crinkles her eyes and this little dimple shows up just under her left eye. It's too cute!


A true, genuine smile of a child...nothing like it!




Boys being boys...I love this. He climbed to the tip-top of the choo-choo train. Of course, I'm nervous thinking he's going to fall at any minute, but I just couldn't interupt his victory celebration!


Golden | Priscilla Baierlein Photography {KY Newborn Photographer}

When Courtney told me she was pregnant and wanted me to photograph this little guy, I was ecstatic. Of course I was over joyed for her because I knew she would be a wonderful momma, but I was also very happy for myself :) I don't know what I was more excited about, being able to see a friend I hadn't seen in years, being able to meet her little guy, or being able to photograph him. Welcome to the world Greyson Golden (don't you love that name)! This first one is my absolute favorite so far! Look at all that hair! He is such a little sweety and you can't go wrong with a baby in a bowl :)



A tip to all you momma's looking for something to help your little one nap...bean bags, they work wonders. Oh...and either a heater fan or a hair dryer. You'll be amazed...



Long eyelashes :)


And kisses from Mom and Dad :) He is a very loved little boy!!!!!


Spring is in the Air | Priscilla Baierlein Photography {Lexington, KY Child and Family Photographer}

WHAT. A. FUN. FAMILY. So stylish...so colorful...so thoughtful...so loving...and just plain fun. We shot in one of my absolute favorite locations, down town Lexington. We started at Gratz Park. A perfect place to start! I was happy when I talked to Kim and she said they were going to be wearing bright colors. I was thrilled when they got out of the car...so well coordinated, in bright spring colors...even props to pull everything together. And did I mention gorgeous? And funny? Andrew had me cracking up the entire time. I have tons of favorites from the session already, but here are just a few of my favorites of my favorites :) Hey...Ralph Lauren...call me...I've got a model for you :)  


Those LASHES....those FRECKLES!


Just one of the many props Mom brought :)








I just love this moment between Mom and Son. So sweet.



They're so cute and so in love :)


I love this one sssooo much. Love the way she's looking at him...


So dramatic....(or maybe he was just telling me to stop taking pictures...lol). Oh...I almost forgot...this is right before or after I came an inch of running into a street sign. I was walking along snapping away when I just happen to pull the camera away from my face in time to see the street sign right in front of me!!!!


See...it was worth almost walking into a sign!

I have to share this with the last image.  I send all my clients an online form with some questions that give me a better idea of who they are. One of the questions I ask is "what do you want your children to remember about their childhood?" I always love reading the answers to these questions. I especially loved Kim's answer. She said that she wanted Andrew to remember that they talked about everything. I thought it was so sweet and I could immediately tell they had a beautiful relationship. For some reason I feel like this picture shows that relationship :) Such a wonderful Mom. Kim, Andrew, and Jon...thank you so much for sharing your little family with me!!!


Happy Sammy | Priscilla Baierlein Photography {Louisville, KY Child Photographer}

As soon as I talked to Bret on my way home, I said "that was one of the best sessions ever". Seriously...it was fabulous. The outfits, the locations, but mostly...beautiful...happy little Sammy. This is one of the happiest babies ever. She was constantly smiling and laughing...of course it may have something to do with the two cupcakes we gave her :) Anything for cute pictures. Hey...the session was to celebrate her first birthday! We started out at one of several Homemade Ice Cream and Pie Kitchen's in Louisville. The is the second session I've done at one of these little restaurants. They are so cute...have huge windows in the front...and smell delicious! If you're looking for a fun location to start your session, this is perfect! sammy9



I feel like she's looking at me like "well, which one do you want?" :)




Thanks to Mom and Dad for trusting me on this one. When we left, I asked to go over in front of a garage door in the parking lot. lol. I thought sure they were going to think I was crazy, but they just trusted me. I got my old pink chair out of my back seat and dragged it into the shade. I don't know, but I think Sammy liked it :)



I promise this was a tear of joy...



Look at those eyes!
