Baby S was my one newborn girl in a month of newborn boys so far! You can see below, she was such a doll. When I spoke with mom to plan our session, she said they loved soft, light, neutral colors and timeless photos. I always love hearing that. As much as we use props and color in our other work, lately I am most drawn to the simple newborn photos that really focus on the beauty of baby with their new family. I think we captured that perfectly with S! She started our session wide awake and we captured some beautiful family portraits that bring tears to my eyes. You can actually feel how loved she is by the expressions on her parent’s faces. And, check out that little dimple when she smiles up at them! After that we captured all of the classics. She even rocked a tutu, but we still kept it soft and classic. We finished with more family portraits when S was curled up and sleepy… more favs! Every bit of S was beautiful and so fun to photograph. Enjoy your sneak peek.
R was one of the most beautiful newborns I have ever seen. Her skin, her lashes, her rosebud lips…. perfection! As soon as I saw her I remarked to mom and dad about how amazingly gorgeous she is! Each time a new person in the studio came in to help us out, they said the exact same thing! R started our session a bit alert but was quickly snoozing away on the beanbag. We kept the whole session simple and timeless and focused on all of her perfect little features. Enjoy your sneak peek mom and dad!
I had so much fun at this newborn and family session last week in the studio. It was easy to see how much baby E was already adored by her parents and siblings. It felt like a morning visiting with old friends. We captured some beautiful portraits, played movies for the kids, and caught up on all that was new since we last visited. Mom came with lots of great keepsakes for me to incorporate including her wedding dress (where baby E is happily sleeping below) and the most adorable set of leg warmers I’ve ever seen. Add to that our fresh spring flowers and all of E’s beautiful little features and we had a session fit for a princess! Enjoy your sneak peek!
When mom showed me the adorable silver tutu she brought along, I died. I said, “I have this really sparkly background that would look amazing with, want to try it?!” Mom was all for it. It was perfect! Baby J was so teeny tiny and she slept right through our whole session. She had the most perfect little doll features. She snoozed in our pretty spring garden full of brightly colored hydrangeas. She curled right up into the arms of her adoring mom and dad. I could have photographed her all day! And isn’t her mom one of the most gorgeous new moms on the planet?! They were such a beautiful family and we had a great morning together. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I’ve loved photographing this family over the past few years and I was thrilled to hear that mom was expecting again last fall. Sharing in such good news is one of the best parts of the job. Who am I kidding, I love just about everything about this job! I was SO PROUD of big brother K and how well he did holding and taking care of his newborn brother G. Is it weird to get emotional thinking back about it?! G did a great job himself in his HHP photo debut. He started wide awake and stared straight into my camera. I knew dad was excited to see those so I had to share one here. Then he fell fast asleep for all of our individual portraits. Look how he rocked that hammock shot! Enjoy your sneak peek!
Last week was filled with sweet and sleepy newborn baby boys! T was the second newborn boy of our week and he was such a dream to photograph. Mom and dad were so laid back and I could see how in love with their new little man they were. T cuddled right up onto my bean bag and even gave me a few big smiles. Who do you think he looks like when he smiles, mom or dad? We kept our sets simple and timeless with a few nautical accents. I loved our morning together! Enjoy your sneak peek!
Every time I see the L family, we leave saying “I wish we lived closer together!” Mom and drove down from the North Shore of Boston once again for a session at our studio. I am always so thankful they make the trip because they are the sweetest of clients, we always have an amazing session, and we truly count them as our friends here. What a great job this is, being able to watch families grow and feeling like you get to be a small part of all of the good memories. I couldn’t wait to meet the newest addition to the family. Mom emailed me just a few days before our session and said “did you look at the forecast?” Finally, a warm spring day for New England! It went up into the high seventies, so we decided to take a few photos outdoors at the end of our session. This spot is right on Narragansett Bay, very close to our new studio location! While it was a gorgeous day inland, it was still a bit chilly for a newborn out by the coast. The ideal time to try some newborn portraits outdoors is when it is up over 80 degrees. We kept T wrapped up in a cuddly blanket and away from the wind and sun and managed to pull off some pretty adorable seaside pictures! Enjoy your sneak peek.
There are sessions when I spend a whole hour just trying to get a big sibling in the same FRAME as their newborn brother or sister. Not with this family! Big sister A loved being in front of the camera and loved showering her new baby brother with kisses. Newborn A was just as content as could be. This session was especially fun to look forward to because I was let in on a little secret that no one besides the ultrasound tech knew… a BOY would be joining the family. I could barely contain myself during our pre-session as mom talked about flowers and gardens and all along I knew this would be a session filled with blue! I was sure I was going to slip and call him a “he.” Finally, I could talk to mom again when the secret was out. I am overjoyed looking at all of the sweet moments we captured of the W family welcoming their new baby boy. Big sister rocked every possible sibling photo I could think of for this age and then she played so nicely for the rest of our session. Newborn A rocked his individual portraits too, but he mostly just loved to be cuddled. I can’t wait to show you the rest mom and dad!
I loved meeting the W family last week. They are one of our newest 2013 Baby Plan families! Their sweet baby girl was a social butterfly. Approaching 3 weeks old, she wanted to take in the world around her. She loved to be held and cuddled and fed. She looked like a living doll with the most gorgeous head of hair and pouty lips. I had so much fun getting to know her and I can’t wait to spend a year celebrating her as she grows. Mom and dad were completely in love with their new little one. We started our session with plenty of family portraits where she cooed and smiled for us. After 2 hours she finally drifted off to sleep and we captured plenty of dreamy images to end our day. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I know I say it a lot, but one of the things I love most about my job is watching families grow. Capturing each new baby as they enter the world and join a family amazes me every time. This family has been coming to me for portraits since mom was pregnant with her first. Big sister A was one of the first newborns I photographed ever (perhaps a Throwback Thursday post to come?). They were back again with the birth of little brother J, now 2, and I was thrilled to hear the news that a third sweet baby would be joining the family. All in all, this was their 9th session with me! It’s no wonder that I love these kids like my own when I see them again! Baby L was just as perfect as her big brother and sister… only, I was very surprised to see a full head of brown hair on this one! Other than that, she looks just like her big brother and sister did as babies… lucky girl! Enjoy your sneak peek P family. Thank you for another perfect “session” as A would say!
