With summer in full swing, it’s a great opportunity to get your family portraits updated!  If you’re going on vacation this year, it really is the perfect to get some updated images of your brood all together.  I travel all over and would love to capture some beautiful pictures of your family on the beach, in the mountains, wherever you may be!  I love working in new locations and my sessions are fully planned out in advance so everyone knows what to wear, what we’ll be doing, what types of images we are shooting for, etc.  That way no one is left feeling uncertain about the session.

If you’d like to schedule your summer portrait session, please e-mail me using the contact form on this website (anikacolombo@gmail.com) and we will plan out an amazing session that fits your family’s style and personalities perfectly!

I did some photos for the Daltons a couple days ago, and holy MOLY is their 8 month old baby boy adorable!  This was my first time working with this awesome little family– they told me they hadn’t had professional photos taken of him since he was born.  This little stud is a natural model though–  he definitely knew how to work the camera.  I think his parents may need to start bringing him around more often!  😉  We started outside taking a few family photos, and a few with just Booker before heading inside because it was pretty chilly and miserable out.  Because seriously, how could you say no to this face?

Once we came in, Booker was a pro.  He LOVED wearing those sunglasses.  They had the most adorable little 3 piece suit and tie for him for some early Easter pictures.  I wish I could share every picture I took of this kid, that’s how cute and photogenic he was… but I will save some suspense for his parents when they get the CD once I finish editing them all.  Here’s a sneak peek of his photoshoot!

Sunday mornings

Finally the weekend!  Can I get a hallelujah?!  We had a long, boring week at home.  The good news is that our kitchen, living room and laundry room are no longer a construction zone!  Hopefully the rest of the house will soon be done and we can get back to life as we know it.  I am already dying to spring clean and get some major organization done, but it’s pretty pointless at this point with things being shuffled back and forth between rooms while waiting for the floors to be completed. But soon!

Took some photos this morning while hubby spent time making pancakes and turkey bacon for breakfast.  Kellan spent his time smearing it all over his face and chair, then finally dropping pieces for the ever-hopeful dogs. No where else in the world I would rather be. ❤

“I can’t remember all the times I try to tell myself to hold on to these moments as they pass…”

I took little Trent’s 6 month photos last weekend.  His parents have opted to take advantage of my Baby’s First Year package, which includes a photo session at birth, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months old.  I SO enjoy the babies I am lucky enough to photograph on a regular basis.  I love watching them grow up and I love knowing that years from now, they will be looking back on these photos… showing them to their kids… their grandchildren.  I personally love looking at old family photos, so I am glad this trend of having family memories professionally documented has taken off.

My own little man turned 9 months TODAY!  It is so crazy how time flies.  He is standing (holding onto something), crawling, sounding out words (BAAAAAAA for “ball”, CCCCCCCC for “cat”, etc.), knows how to give high fives, kisses (sloppy and open mouth, but still adorable, nonetheless), loves showing his muscles with a loud grunt, already shakes his head no at me, waves “hi” and “bye”, and he LOVES food.  My goodness, does this child love food.  We lovingly refer to him as the “garbage disposal”.  I swear this kid could out eat any of us.  He’s got two bottom teeth, and yesterday I noticed two top ones that will soon make their appearance.  Hopefully soon, so he will sleep a little better.

Anyways!  I will try to get some pictures of him taken today.  In the meantime, here’s a couple of shots from my session with baby Trent.  You can see more on my facebook page: www.facebook.com/colombophotography

Anyone else freezing their buns off?

Brrrrrrrr, it is SO COLD!  I am so ready for summer already.  Yes, yes, I know we’re only in January.  Well, there is some good news…. I have my home studio up and running!  Whooo!  I had a 1 year old doing a cake smash session the other day and she is such a little cutie!  She was an absolute champ and so fun to photograph.  Here are a couple pictures from her session!

Reeves family pictures

I was bored last week and knew the weather was going to be nice, so I offered a cheap mini-shoot to the first couple people to message me on my Facebook page (which I do every so often, so go become a fan!). Carey posted almost immediately that she wanted in, so I had her family out a few nights ago. They are a wild bunch! They brought along their two kids as well as their 3 boxers and it was a fun chaos.

The kids and I (of course, being as mature as I am) giggled pretty much the whole time as we tried to get the dogs to cooperate. It was funny. There was just so much new stuff for them to look at. Horses, cows, cat, horse poop!

They were so cute and the kids were so sweet too. The weather was really nice and although we didn’t get the sunset until it was almost dark (phooey), it was still a great evening for a quick little photo shoot. Photographing pets can be a little tricky since they move so fast, especially if they’re in a new setting, but I love a challenge and I love meeting people’s pets 🙂

Here’s a few more photos from their shoot.  Enjoy!
