Two Parents, A Baby and A Gun – A Happy Holiday Shoot

Over the holidays, I found myself in the middle of an inspiration trifecta: new camera, beautiful subjects and a distraction-free location.

My cousin recently had her first baby, who is also the first great-grandchild in our family. The kid had no choice but to endure a holiday with cameras shoved in his face the entire time. And rightfully so- he is one adorable, amazing baby.

But they were nice enough to let me follow them around for our own shoot and these photographs are my happy results of that generous time.
