Family Photos with Alexis Jones Photography!

With Kellan turning 6 months I had been thinking that it was time for us to have some family photos made.  We had a newborn photo session a few days after he was born and there are a few shots of all 3 of us but none since then.  It was time for an update!  I didn't really want or need a whole lot of pictures because as fast as Kellan is growing and changing we're going to need to get family pictures taken frequently!  When I look back at some of his newborn pictures he doesn't even look like the same baby!

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!
So adorable! Its hard to believe that this was the same little guy just 6 months ago!

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!
If anyone is looking for a great photographer in the Southside Virginia, Richmond or Virginia Beach areas take a look at her website!  She is super talented and beyond efficient!  I had my edited CD within a few DAYS and probably would have had it sooner if it wouldn't have taken us so long to decide which pictures we wanted!

Thank you Lexi for doing such a great job capturing our family!
