Six Month Photo-Shoot for Baby McKenzie
I love it when clients become close friends, and that that is exactly what happened with Ryan and Melissa Hesseling. A few years ago they left the South and moved up here to Anchorage, where Ryan had been stationed with the Air Force. We first met them when they came to us interested in getting their engagement pictures taken. We had a blast taking their pictures (which turned out amazing) and getting to know this awesome couple . Since then we’ve taken pictures for many other big events in their lives, including a ‘Trash the Dress’ session after their wedding, maternity photos during Melissa’s pregnancy, and newborn photos of their sweet little McKenzie when she was born late last year.
Last month McKenzie turned six months and we met up again to get some pictures to celebrate her half birthday. It was a beautiful day and very white and bright outside due to the unusually late snowfall we had in May. We had a blast hanging out and getting lots of adorable pictures of Kenzie and some with Melissa too. We started out in McKenzie’s elegant nursery and then headed outside for the rest of the pictures. I just love this family and am so glad I get to be what Melissa describes as their ‘lifetime family photographer’. They are moving soon and I am going to be so sad to see this family leave Alaska!
Melissa has a blog about all things maternity and baby, with lots of gorgeous pictures and some amazing DIY projects that she and McKenzie complete together. Head over to her blog and check out what she posted about our photo-shoot on her blog, Fawn Over Baby.
