Sonora Newborn and Family Photographer | Daddy Love | Christine Dibble Photography

Just a single frame today…a teaser for the full post later. I know that little ones are turned completely upside down when a younger sibling arrives. They feel the excitement of the parents, and they get excited too…until reality hits them and it is obvious that this new baby must now steal away a lot of attention from mom and dad. When siblings come along for some family photos at a newborn portrait session, I am never sure what will be arriving…a truly happy older child, or a pretty grumpy one. But there have been a few times now that I have had the parents say that the older sibling has not looked at the baby or touched the baby or even acknowledged it. And a few of those times, I have captured that first connection. That is such a special thing!Sonora newborn and family photographer Christine Dibble Photography takes a portrait of a big brother reaching out to calm his crying newborn baby brother while dad helps during a newborn and family portrait session in the Sonora studio.

Patty - what a sweet sneak peek. It can be a challenge for sure getting older siblings to cooperate during the newborn session. I love that you captured the first interaction here. So sweet.

Samantha - I just love sneak peeks! How adorable is dad with his two little ones during their family portrait session!

Effie L. - What an amazingly sweet newborn photo!
Love the interaction between dad and big little brother there!
Great capture!

Sonora Graduation Photographer | On to High School | Christine Dibble Photography

This was a big end of the school year for us because we had a graduation to celebrate. Brennen is moving from eighth grade to high school. Most kids get a bit nervous about that jump, but Brennen will be joining his older brother and his dad on campus, so it will really not be a new place to him. Curtis Creek School has the eighth grade graduates wear gowns. The kids do dress up for the dance they attend after the ceremony, but Brennen didn’t want to wear anything but Wranglers, cowboy boots, and his cowboy hat. I figured it was pointless to spend money on something he would never wear again, so we picked out some brand new jeans and a shirt he wanted. I told him he had to wear a tie, and he chose a bow tie! But I think he looked pretty handsome with the blues bringing out those blue eyes! He was pretty laid back about the whole thing, but I think he secretly relished all the attention. He even had ideas about what he wanted for portraits. We wandered around the campus he will be leaving before the ceremony to capture those, and it was a great setting. I know it will feel like tomorrow that I am taking his senior portraits!Sonora graduation and senior portrait photographer Christine Dibble Photography takes eighth grade graduation photos of a cowboy in front of the Curtis Creek mural wall.

Sonora Summerville Senior Portrait Photographer | Rhian | Christine Dibble Photography

Rhian is one of the Class of 2016 at Summerville High School this year! Since Summerville senior portraits are due in September for the yearbook deadline, she was smart and had them taken early in the summer to not have to rush last minute. And by doing that, we were able to take advantage of a beautiful wildflower field! She wore the perfect open-work sweater and brought some beautiful books along. She even made the necklace she was wearing! It happened to be very cloudy and overcast that day, so there was not much in the way of beautiful golden sunlight, but that just meant that Rhian was the one who was shining.Sonora and Summerville senior portrait photographer Christine Dibble Photography takes outdoor senior portraits of a girl in a wildflower field.
