The Ford Family

Posted in Family, General tagged at 9:20 am by uphoto

The Ford family came to us several months back after winning a gift certificate at an auction that we donated some portraits for and we’re so glad they did. Look at this precious family! Four beautiful girls between the ages of 11 months and six years.  Without a doubt they must keep mom and dad busy at home! We had so much fun with them at Cheekwood, even despite the cold and super windy weather. Everyone was such troopers and we ended up having a great day. Thanks for letting us spend some time with your adorable family!

Connor & Sydney — Siblings

Posted in Children, Family, General tagged , , , , , at 7:22 am by uphoto

How adorable are they?! We just finished doing Connor’s 12 month Watch Me Grow session, my how the time flies by, it seems like only yesterday that he was born! He’s one little bundle of energy so we had a good time with him and got a lot of fun portraits. We also recently got to photograph Connor with big sister Sydney. She’s 4 going on 14! This is the portrait that went home for mom and dad’s wall. We love it!

My Talented Mother-in-Law (Pastel Portrait)

Posted in General, History, Personal tagged , at 8:33 pm by uphoto

Most people know that we photograph a lot of babies, families, children, seniors and weddings. One of the services that is less know that we provide is restoration work to old or damaged photographs as well as professional copy work. We have several artists whom we photograph for whenever they finish a painting either for publications that their work is going to be in, to make additional copies, or to serve as a back up for their finished artwork. Recently my super talented mother-in-law did this portrait of her granddaughter in pastels and wanted to have a copy made of it. So we got to photograph her stunning portrait. I love it so much that I had to show off her work. I can’t wait until Brayden is older and gets to have his done!

The Walker Family

How fun is this family?! We had an absolute blast with them! I love the sessions where you spend half of the time laughing. They were entertaining to say the least, especially dad. We’ll happily photograph them any day of the week. Can’t wait until the next time!

One of the Sweetest Families Ever

Posted in Children, Family, General tagged , at 8:00 am by uphoto

We absolutely ADORE Macy and Billy and their sweet girls! We’ve been photographing Emma since she was born and most recently got to meet precious little Caroline, the newest addition to their family. Emma is already a fabulous big sister and seems to be dealing really well with having Caroline as part of the family now. Here are some portraits from one of the recent sessions that we did. Aren’t they a beautiful family?!

Sweet Little Gray

Posted in Baby Photography, Family, General tagged , , , , at 8:00 am by uphoto

How could you ever say no to that sweet face?!  Grayson is absolutely precious and so much fun.  It’s amazing how much personality a baby can have, but then if you knew her parents you wouldn’t be surprised as they are so full of life and laughter!  I can still picture Gray’s huge smiles at her 3 month session which is so uncommon at that age.  Here are two of our favorites from her 3 month session and one of our favorites from her 6 month session.  Love that sweet face in that hat! ADORABLE!!!

It’s a BOY!!!

Posted in General, Maternity, Personal tagged , , , , at 5:19 pm by uphoto

Yesterday was a very exciting day in the Smith house!  We got to have the long awaited ultrasound that we’ve been looking forward to for weeks.  And much to my surprise (virtually everyone predicted us having a girl) we found out we’re having a son!  And let me tell you, our little man was not shy about showing off his stuff! There was no shadow of a doubt that we were having a boy.  We are both thrilled, Jimmy especially.  After our ultrasound I went to Gymboree to make my first little boy purchase and later that evening got to spend some time with the sophomore girls in our Bible study at Mellow Mushroom to celebrate.  Like I said, it was a great day!

Thanks again to all of you who have been so involved and supportive throughout this process with us.  It is truly a blessing to be able to be a part of your families and Jimmy and I are excited to have you as a part of our as well.

And now I am recruiting YOU to give us some boy name suggestions!

Posted in Baby Photography, Children, General, Newborn Photography tagged , , , , , , , at 9:00 am by uphoto

Sweet little Delaney is one of the newest additions to the Uchida Photography family. She is doing our Watch Me Grow Sessions (3, 6, 9 & 12 month panel sessions) and is a member of our Memory Book Program. She is adorable and is one happy little baby. We have yet to see a time where she isn’t grinning from ear to ear. Not only is Delaney so wonderful but her mommy and grandmom are too! We’ve already loved getting to know your family and are excited about the upcoming sessions and custom album that is being designed. Thanks for the opportunity to capture these important milestones in your life! We’ll see you in a few months!
