What a year 2016 was! I was honored to shoot 75 sessions, and 36 of those were sweet new babies. I met many new families that have a new place in my heart, and also got to see many of my returning families and their precious growing kiddos. My heart is truly full from such a wonderful year!
Here is a shot from each of my newborn sessions for the year. So many precious babies!!!
And here is a shot from all my maternity and family sessions over the year. So much love and joy in these pictures!
And now, for an announcement…
Looking forward to 2017, I am so excited to announce that we are adding a sweet baby girl to our family in April! Her older brothers and we simply can’t wait to meet her! As excited as I am for our growing family, it does mean stepping back from Kayla Alden Photography for a good chunk of time. Because of some difficulties we’ve had with both of boys in their early months, I am not wanting to rush back too soon, so at this time I plan to take March-July off. Starting in August I plan to take on newborn sessions and returning clients for family sessions on a limited basis. It’s hard to imagine slowing down so much after such a full year last year, but if I’ve learned one thing in my four years of business it is that balancing work and family is vital and I just want to be sure I’m soaking in this last time of having a newborn!
I couldn’t resist getting this shot of my boys on Halloween announcing their baby sister on the way! She is going to be so protected and loved (and a tough little one!) having these two superheros as big brothers.
I can’t express enough gratitude to all my clients for allowing me to capture such special memories for you! Wishing each of you a 2017 full of love, joy, and peace!
