Meet Carson! Carson is the 6 month old son of my sweet friends Kristie and Tyler Ledbetter. I met the Ledbetters at church and went through BOTH of Kristie's pregnancies (I did her maternity photos of her first born, Mackenzie). Tyler is the one of the Youth Leaders at Everett Hills Baptist church, Kristie works at our hospital. This is one of the sweetest couples you'll ever meet and it shows in their children as well! I have been taking photos of this family for years and have watched Mackenzie grow up through my lens. So, it's only natural that when Carson was born, I would hope to take his photo as well. We tried to do his three month photos, but it was during a time that I send my camera bodies off for cleaning, calibrating, and fine-tuning before my wedding season so we opted for 6 month photos and I'm so glad we did. They came to my house where I have a studio (especially if the weather is not optimal for outdoor photos). Carson was just the SWEETEST baby boy! He was a little unsure of my camera at first, but once I got to talking to him and he could see my face, he was all smiles! His big sis was also instrumental in helping keep his attention for me! You can truly see the love between these siblings as Mackenzie calls him "bubby". Once it was Mackenzie's turn to be photographed, she wanted to show me how it is to be a "Princess" and let me tell you, SHE NAILED IT!
As a photographer, we sometimes get repetitious in posing so I tried my best to find different ways of photographing my clients. In Carson's case, I found some black bow-ties that were once my husbands (when he worked at the movie theater) and thought "naked baby with bow tie"!! OMG! Was he adorable or what????? I always incorporate the family in baby photos so the baby stays calm. I did get some adorable crying baby photos too, but even then - adorable! I just love this family and can't wait to watch Carson grow up like his big sister.
