Our Faces | NH Children’s Photographer

Another year has passed and once again I am left wondering where the time went and how my children have changed so much.  I look at their faces and hug their little bodies every single day and somehow they silently grow when I’m not watching.

Six years ago, right after Bea was born, I put them all in white and photographed them together.  I have done the exact same thing every year (almost to the day) since then.  I have so many portraits and pictures of my kids but this series is by far my favorite because I can see them and their growth without any other distractions.  Just their beautiful smiles and the closeness between them.

This year I feel like Asa has changed the most.  He somehow went from being a little preteen to having a more manly face and build.  Just a precursor for what we will soon be seeing with Finley and Atticus.

Here they are; the entire series of winter faces. katepreftakes0007

Bea at the Beach | NH Children’s Photographer

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air…”  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

My little Bea at the beach.  She had so much fun running and jumping around on the rocks.  And wearing her new sunglasses.   It’s hard to resist her free spirit and sweet little smile.  If only I could make these days last forever.

Bea in the River | NH Children’s Photographer

A few nights ago Bea and I decided to take a walk down to the river.  The light was beautiful, we were both in good spirits, and it just seemed like a fun thing to do. She threw on her favorite fancy dress and we braved the poison ivy, bugs and snake (gah!) and had the best time together.  We laughed and talked and splashed around in the river. We imagined fairies and left them some surprises.  Because, sometimes, you just need to put everything aside and do what makes you happy.

Mini Sessions at the Library | NH Children’s Photographer

Every year I schedule a mini session day for a local charity of some kind. This year I decided to give to our amazing local little library.  Our family loves this library and it plays such a huge role in our little community.

The mini sessions took place throughout the day in the library and it was so much fun to see all the adorable kids and families.  It was supposed to be a spring day but we got 15″ of snow the day before!!  I am constantly amazed at the beautiful children that surround us and the big personalities that go with them!  Some of these kids I have been photographing since they were born and I just love seeing them grow.  Here are a few of my favorites from the day.  It was really hard to choose!

Spring Mini Sessions | NH Children’s Photographer

The weather is starting to change and I am super excited to announce my spring mini sessions coming up on April 2nd!   The proceeds from the sitting fees will benefit the Mont Vernon Friends of the Library and the portraits will be taken in and around our adorable little library.   I will have a white studio background set up inside for portraits and if it’s nice out we can go outside for additional portraits as well.  Please email me at kate@preftakesphoto.com to schedule your session.  I am so looking forward to seeing you and helping out the library!
