Baby's First Snow

April-ChristensenThe southeast coast of the United States recently received its first gift of the new year… snow! With such a warm climate, a light dusting of snow is exciting and usually welcomed by residents of North Carolina. For some little ones, it is the first snow they have ever seen! Our creative contributor, April Christensen from April Marie Photography, is sharing a few ‘aw-worthy’ images from her daughter Marlowe’s first mesmerizing adventure in the snow!
AprilMariePhoto07Since I am Canadian, it’s almost mandatory that I brave the chilly snow with a smile on my face. And that’s exactly what I did when I took these photos of my daughter! She was completely mesmerized by her first snowfall. She stared at the beautiful, fluffy whiteness with a curious expression on her face: “What the heck is this cold stuff?” It was adorable!
AprilMariePhoto06We live in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and since winters here are pretty mild, it was such fun when the snow made an appearance. It started the evening before I took these photos, and it was so beautiful. I love it when it snows at night; it’s so dreamy and quiet. Peaceful, really.

AprilMariePhoto02I remember walking outside and just standing there, watching it fall, thinking to myself in a way that only photographers can understand, “I am SO gonna take pictures of Marlowe in this tomorrow! I sure hope it sticks!” It stuck. And I was so happy for it!
AprilMariePhoto05I had a little bit of inspiration for this shoot: I was looking through another photographer’s photos in the snow, and I desperately wanted to take some of my own. There’s something so glamorous about the way the snow glistens and reflects light; it looks so ethereal in photos. You can imagine how excited I was when my opportunity came! Needless to say, I am one happy photographer!
