Nicki & Shane are back on the blog but this time with their babies! If you missed their homecoming post click here. Well I just had to share their photos by Kristi James Photography since it's a wonderful example of why photographers can be invaluable! They can follow families thru milestones, taking photos during deployments and special events capturing these memories forever. Here you will see 4 portrait sessions that Kristi captured. The 1st session Kristi took was of Nicki, Shane and Zoey at their home when Zoey was a wittle baby. Next you will see the 2nd photo session when Zoey was 12 months old, Shane was deployed, and Nicki was pregnant with their 2nd baby. I was also part of this 2nd photo shoot! Kristi needed someone to distract Zoey, make silly noises and get her to look at the camera so that Kristi could photograph mommy and baby. I made the rose flower halo for Zoey to wear, but getting a toddler to wear something like that was challenging and a pretty humorous endeavor! Well Zoey & mommy had a blast with this beautiful photo session and Kristi is a pro at working with kids. She is so patient. It's so difficult for families to go thru deployments while a spouse is pregnant, that sometimes a photo session like this can bring a little extra joy and happiness during an emotional time. The 3rd photo session was when Shane returned home, and the last was right after Nicki gave birth to baby Christian! You got all that!!?? Nicki is a professional photographer herself, so trusting another photographer can be stressful but Kristi is very talented and was up for the task.
Kristi is a portrait photographer that specializing in newborn, family, and couples photos. She services Beaufort, SC and the surrounding areas: Hilton Head, Bluffton, Ridgeland, SC and Savannah, GA. She is also a wife of a United States Marine. Thank you Kristi for taking these GORGEOUS photos, Nicki & Shane will treasure them forever!! Enjoy :)
