I've had a lot of baby shoots this year that were couples whose weddings I photographed a few years ago and now they are having a baby and I'm always thrilled to be asked back to photograph the new little family! This year I have photographed 6 or 7 babies whose parents weddings I photographed just a few years ago.
My business seems to be moving in that direction also - I just love photographing babies! And it's a natural transition. The Knot is a wedding planning magazine and website that now has an offshoot that's called The Bump dedicated to pregnancy and babies and The Nest for home decorating. Colorado Brides and Babies is a local magazine that covers details for both Colorado weddings and babies. And I see many other photographers moving towards baby photography after years of photographing weddings.
Some recent brides and their babies:
Jessica and Dan were married in 2009 at Vail's Donovan Pavilion in
and had twins this year, Finn and Zoe.
Kate and Kevin were married at Keystone Ranch in 2007 and welcomed baby Alana in December this year.
Julia and Jeremy were married at St. Mary's Chapel in Breckenridge in 2008 and welcomed their second baby Cole this year.
Josie and Geoff were married on a Silverthorne Ranch in 2007
and welcomed baby Tyson last year.
So who's next? I guess my snowboarding bride, Andrea, is next - she's having a baby in October! Can't wait to meet the new addition Andrea! And I'm glad it's a fall baby so you didn't have to consider "pregnant snowboarding!" I'm sure you would do it gracefully!
