The Wickham Family

I love this job for the fact that I get to know some pretty nice people, and Blake and Sara are two of them. Blake is my friend Gloria’s son and you’ve seen them before on my blog when I shot their wedding three years ago this month. Congratulations you two! Then two and a half years later they had Addi (Addilea) who is now 7 months old. She was born Valentine’s Day and if you’d like, you can be reminded of her newborn session here, or her four month pictures with cousin Lily here. She hasn’t changed much – except to only get cuter. 🙂 I love her chunkiness that she will one day outgrow, her sparse head of hair that will eventually be locks of blond, and her still serious look at my big black box. Naturally at home she gives out the smiles and giggles much more freely but that wasn’t happening with me. We all decided later we needed her Grampa or Gramma on the scene to get the big smiles. Still the serious looks are always some of my favorites. She is at the perfect age to photograph as she is sitting up on her own but not crawling so you can put her down and she stays put! We did have some issues with her wanting to eat the grass and dirt, but hey it’s all natural right? Blake and Sara, and sweet Addi, you guys were awesome to hang with and thank you for walking the green mile with me!

And to finish our beautiful session, I got the rare joy of photographing this unafraid fellow.

OMG Mary! I’ve been checking your blog obsessively the past few days, excitedly awaiting these pictures! And I wasn’t at all disappointed! They are fantastic! Thank you so much for giving us some wonderful family shots!!!

Sara, you gave me a BIG smile this morning! I love obsessive blog checkers. Ha! So glad you love them. I loved them too. And thank you my fine co-worker Cody for chiming in too!

These are adorable, and what a cute baby! Where is the “green mile”? (That makes me a little nervous — have you seen the movie?)

Fairly Candid - October 9, 2015 - 3:21 PM

Yes, I’ve seen it — I live with Mike remember? We parked at the far end of a river then walked “the green mile” to the other end taking pictures. We had to carry stuff over fallen trees, around sand pits, through tall grass … get the idea? 🙂

I love these photos! Addi seemed so serious in most of them. That little girl is a studier. She is more interested in what’s going on around her then having fun in the moment. I noticed you were able to get a couple of her smiling and having fun. Good job Mary! Blake and Sara made up for what Addi didn’t give with smiles. They are very proud parents! As they should be!! Love your proud Grandma!

If that little Addi isn’t sweeter than peach pie, I don’t know who is. LOVE all the solo ones of that little beauty.

Sorry so late in commenting back to you Gloria (and Megan) but I had a busy fulfilling weekend with all my g-babes. I know what you mean about the smiles on your big kids — they truly love this little girl with all their being — and isn’t it just the way it’s supposed to be! It’s a beautiful thing to witness. Babies are truly blessings aren’t they!
