Saratoga Family Lifestyle Photographer | Cole Martin’s In-Home Session

April 10, 2017

Saratoga Family Lifestyle Photographer | In- Home session with Cole Martin & Family

Lifestyle Sessions are the best because they are REAL.   Forget about the stress of the perfect smile, and the perfect outfits, and the perfectly cooperative toddler (which doesn’t exist to begin with!).  I adored getting to hang out with this fun family at their home for an afternoon filled with xylophones, coconut trees, monkeys, and lots of laughs.  Not to mention, how cute is this nursery?!  Cole is such a chill little boy, filled with smiles and eyes for Mom & Dad.   The sunshine of their life, we can see how this beautiful rainbow baby would light up anyone’s world.

Cole’s Mom, Erin, is one of the sweetest, hardest working, stay-at-home mompreneur I’ve ever met!   Go ahead and blog stalk her, she’s fabulous.

As a Mom, there’s so much in life that passes by. We dismiss these everyday moments as not worthy of being photographed because they are sometimes less than perfect.  Looking back, however, these are some of my most cherished photos.  The imperfect.  Life.  Reality.  THIS is why I love lifestyle sessions so much.   These are the photos that speak to your heart, and I’m so glad this new family welcomed me into their world.

aahh, the age when all day long you pull yourself up onto everything!

This little dude already has some serious chompers in there!

When they’re more interested in pulling all the books off the shelf than they are in actually reading them….


Hahahah this sad face!?  How can you say no?!

I LOVE this.   Nothing better than showing your littles how to love.

And of course, not letting them get envious.

Those LIPS!

Cutest family ever.
