Our friend Lexi Jones has a photography business, Alexis Jones Photography, and she is the photographer who took Kellan's newborn photos. A couple of weeks ago she was offering Spring Mini-Sessions. It was the perfect deal for us and exactly what I was looking for...a 30 minute session with 15 edited photos on a CD.
On Sunday, April 15 we met Lexi out at her in-laws' farm in Purdy, VA. She brought all of the "props" that we needed and already had a few locations picked out and set up ready to go as soon as we got there. Everything went smoothly and the 30 minutes was the perfect amount of time before Kellan started to zone out. Right at the end he was DONE with having his picture taken! He didn't cry...he just refused to look up for the camera...the grass, the arm of the rocking chair, daddy's hands...they were just all too fascinating for him to have time to look up and smile for the camera! Lexi did the most with our time and she got so many fabulous shots! Here are the 15 we chose!
Ok now those were good but get ready for some super cuteness!! Lexi does a fabulous job working with kids and has the most patience with trying whatever strategy it takes (rolling around on the ground, waving around a big stick, jumping up and down...just to name a few she had to use on Kellan) to get them to smile! She understands children, she has two herself!
|I know I'm biased...but is this not THE cutest thing you have EVER seen?!|
|Yep...definitely looks JUST like Daddy!|
|These were taken back in October 2011 by Alexis Jones Photography as well.|
We sure love our big 6 month old boy but I can't believe how fast he's grown! Here are the rest of our pictures from our family photo shoot!
|This is one of my favorites and I'm thinking about getting it made into a canvas. I got a really good Living Social Deal!|
|This is another option for the canvas. I love Kellan's expression and how he's sitting in front of us.|
|Love this little face!|
Thank you Lexi for doing such a great job capturing our family!
