Bird and Belle's Adventures in Marriage

Noah’s Spring Session



Clinton, Katie and Noah Hines.

Photographing Noah is becoming a hobby of mine. I find his dimples enchanting and his giggles more adorable than the meow of my cat. In addition, his parents make the photo adventures super fun with silly songs and lots of laughter. The next time we have photo time I’m going to do a little videography of the songs as they are just too cute. This weekend I stole an hour of the families time for a session in the Lexington Arboretum. I had originally planned to plunk little Noah in the middle of grass and flowers for shots, but quickly learned that Noah does not just dislike touching plants, he is deeply fearful of them. As cute as crying babies are, we only tormented him for a few minutes with plants and spent the rest of the time playing in a tree and at a bench.

Note: Friends and family of Noah can download printable, high-resolution images at my Picasa site later tonight.



These cheeks make my heart melt.

Noah is No. 1!

My second favorite photo from the session.

I need to figure out how to get rid of the bit of Clinton's arm in this photo... tips?

Noah has been blessed with an excellent profile.

Happy baby in a tree!

This is Clinton and Katie laughing at Jay as he dances around behind me with a stuffed duck in efforts to make Noah smile. 🙂

Right before we left Katie and I decided a little flower torture would not scar him for life. 🙂

  1. P.S.
    I am trying to visualize you taking the Noah-tulip photo. That down-on-the-dirt perspective is great!

  2. Tip from the non-photographer: leave the arm because, for the viewer looking closely, it speaks wonders about loving support.
    Your work is enchanting and big-grin-producing!
    Noah’s facial expression among the tulips is priceless!

  3. Hey! Love the baby/family pics! With regard to that one that has a bit of Clinton’s arm in it, if you have Photoshop, you can use the clone stamp to get rid of it. It can be a bit tedious, it typically works well, especially for cleaning up that kind of background stuff.
