I have taken pictures of this little guy’s cousins (all girls) many times – it was really fun to meet him, and especially to be able to watch him dig into some cake at the studio! We also figured out we could use the side of our building for walking shots – those were my favorites from the session!
By the way, have you ever seen anything cuter than this kissy-face?

I’m going to warn you upfront – I’m over-sharing from this session. This was Sadie’s last session from her baby plan, and I love that her Mama said to me “I’m open – is there anything creative you’ve been wanting to do?”… I mean really – you can’t say that to a photographer and not mean it… I suggested I come to their house on a weekday morning, and spend some time with Sadie in her own environment. We let her eat some cake (after all, this was her 1st birthday session), then I tagged along when she got cleaned up, and then we headed to this DREAM of a play room, where gorgeous light was coming in… If you look at nothing else – page down to the last set of images – because this was that ‘not planned’ last minute inspiration – to ask her Mama to read to her, and it was magic! I hope to be able to photograph more babies and kids in this way – they just seem so natural in their own house, and I get to see little bits of personality that I may miss at the studio!
First, she had cake… Mmmm…
Next – a bath was definitely called for…
Then some play time…
And lastly – reading a book with Mom…

I don’t want to sound like I’m playing favorites – because truly, I have the cutest clients – but isn’t Ferris breathtakingly beautiful? We did this session when she was ten months old, and I was in love with the images from the moment I got home and quickly loaded them to the computer. That family shot is honestly one of my favorites to date – seriously. I could have posted her entire session here, but I was able to pare it down to these after much internal debate!
P.S. Did I mention that, in addition to it being my Kate’s 4th birthday today, that today is also Miss Ferris’s birthday as well? Happy Birthday sweet girls!

Scarlett is both a sweet sweet little girl, and also a diva at times – my favorite combination! I got to see both sides of her during our photo session – as you’ll see below! Thank you to her parents for driving over from Mt. Pleasant for their session – it was great to see everyone just 11 months after shooting Scarlett’s newborn portraits last year!

After moving into my awesome new studio space inside Wee Dreamscapes (in Rockwall near Old Navy) – I started up a second site to show off the new studio images, and gave it a new name: Sugar Shots Portrait Boutique. After having many clients cross over between both businesses – I’ve decided it would be much easier to keep up with, and much less confusing – if I show ALL of my recent sessions under this main Sarah Duckworth Photography blog. We’ll still be offering shorter sessions at the studio on limited dates – but you won’t have to worry about which website to go to to see them – they’ll all be right here! And to catch up – here is a sampling of images from blog posts over on the other site – bringing them over here, so everything is in one place! I’ve had a blast so far – can’t you tell?

I was surprised when Liam’s Mom called to tell me it was time for his first birthday session – the time just flies by – I could hardly believe that little Liam was already nearly 1! I have photographed him from the time he was in his Mom’s belly – and now he’s an active toddler! Here’s a sampling of images from his sessions, followed by some from just this one… <3

It was amazing to be able to photograph Kobe one year after his arrival – you see – Kobe was the first baby I photographed as a birth photographer! Well – actually, Kobe was on his own schedule – because he arrived before I did – but I was still able to capture some lovely ‘just after birth’ images of him for his family. Here’s Kobe – then, and now…

I decided to start sharing a bit more of my family here on the blog – because I’ve really enjoyed reading blogs where you get to learn something personal about the blogger, and I want you to know a bit more about me! Getting to know my clients on a personal level is something I love doing, and it always helps me to get those more ‘real’ moments during our portrait session.
These images are from September. The first set are from Kate’s 3rd birthday session – she looked so much more grown up to me than in past portraits – three is such a milestone! The second set are some random snaps of my family, to share with you. My Mom, husband and Dad are in these, and of course – my kids… Maybe in my next post I’ll actually share some more of ME… Ha!
Emily wrapped up her baby plan at the end of last year with a first birthday session in downtown Waxahachie! It was appropriate – because her daddy is a fireman there – and aside from that – the downtown area is SO adorable! I’m so lucky to have a job that allows me to travel around to all different locations and find those little spots that are just perfect for portraits! We even found a doorway to do our cake smash in at the end of the session – and just after we finished – it started to rain – talk about perfect timing!

Kenji came to see me to celebrate his fourth birthday – he was full of energy, and I loved having him! I had trouble deciding which images to share here on the blog, so I decided on a compilation of several… Enjoy!
