baby blessings : Asheville Photographer Sonya Stone

I have some photos to share. Remember how I said every stage has something great that I love? Well, this baby is 9 months old here and unbelievably cute...learning to stand, mastering crawling...getting a tooth though he was such a trooper during the whole session. Baby W's baptism was the next day so we photographed him wearing his beautiful baptismal gown with his parents and grandparents. Then we loosened up and did some family portraits with a more casual feel. They're such a sweet was great getting to know them.

I love babies : Asheville Photographer Sonya Stone

there is something so sweet about being with babies that it cannot be matched. And since I am feeling like 4 kids is enough for my family to hold, there is that danger that I might not get my baby fix...except that taking photos of babies is what I do. I love it. I love that sweet little face looking at you with both curiosity and knowing. The soft skin and dewy smell. Each age has its trademark cute or fun thing, from newborns to toddlers, and I always think...oh, this is what I love about this age. Here is a 3 month old baby that I photographed recently...

And look at that a hysterical face or what?!? Only when you are a baby is drool considered cute!

Family Portrait : Asheville Photographer Sonya Stone

It's almost painful to visit my own blog...this lonely, ghost town of a blog...seemingly deserted by it's founder. I'm sure that after a revitalization, it will return to a hot bed of family photography. It's not that I'm just sitting around eating bon-bons over here. I am busy keeping up with 4 children, but I'm happy to report that I am off maternity leave and am taking new clients. I have been so busy shooting that I have not had time for blogging, but I am catching up and that means I can catch you up!

I had a great shoot a few weeks ago with such a fun family. The whole crew came to Lake Lure for relaxing vacation at the lake. And right away, they showed me a lot of hospitality and personality. What a great made my job pretty easy. And I think they may have the secret to youth in their humor because check this out:
Are you thinking what I was thinking? These are the baby's grandparents, right? NO! Try great-grands! Here are the grandparents...
All I can tell you is they are doing something right. Good looks, lots of smiles, and a joy to work with.
