I had two handsome little newborn boys in last week and both sets of parents loved all things simple and sweet. We focused our sessions around the things I know parents will cherish the most as their babies grow; tiny little details, warm expressions, soft sleepy poses, and sweet family cuddles. Baby H was perfection. He loved curling up on the bean bag and snuggling in mom and dad’s arms. What a gorgeous family! Enjoy your sneak peek!
This adorable baby boy visited the studio last week for his newborn portraits and he was the perfect little customer. He was nice and sleepy and loved cuddling up into sweet poses. Mom and dad were super easy-going and fun to hang out with during our session. We captured everything from classic black and whites with mom and dad, to a sweet nautical shot to match his nursery. The family’s last name means turtle so we had to take one adorable “turtle” shot too… but I’m saving that one as a surprise for their gallery viewing! Enjoy your sneak peek. Can’t wait to share the rest!
For such an itty bitty little girl, J sure did have a set of lungs! She would be fast asleep, but if I disturbed her in the least, she would let out a giant cry that could be heard all the way downstairs! This girl sure did LOVE her sleep. Other than the occasional protest, baby J truly was a perfect little model. She had the most beautiful little features and long black lashes. I remarked that she looked just like Snow White. Mom and dad laughed because the doctor had said the same thing! J was as sweet as can be in each of our sets, but some of my favorite shots are those that show just how gorgeous she is all on her own, especially that little smile below. Enjoy your sneak peek!
Baby M’s family has been with HHP since before 2-year-old K was born! Heidi photographed their first maternity and K’s newborn shoot, and I was lucky enough to get to photograph M in her mama’s belly and in the studio.
M’s nursery is decorated with purple butterflies, and we wanted to subtly add a few to her sets. This butterfly looked right at home in our purple garden! M was also quite the social butterfly during her family photos, trying to stay awake to take in all the action.
Big sister K was so proud to have a baby sister, and held her, sang to her, and posed wherever we asked her to. I was impressed! Of course, mom and dad are stunning, too. Way to make my job easy, B family!
This is just part one of Grace’s modeling debut! Her individual, sibling, and daddy-daughter photos are still to come. Heidi created a gorgeous, brand-new set for Grace and Giuliana’s portraits, and I’ll give you one hint about how it turned out: the entire studio still smells like flowers!
I’m so honored to have been able to photograph their photos as an expectant family of three, and their first photos as four. Giuliana was just as excited as she was at Heidi’s maternity session, and even sang Twinkle, Twinkle to Grace for us when she got fussy! Such a great big sister already. Of course, my models made my job easy, being naturally gorgeous and happy and all.
We’re so happy to have little G in the HHP family. Stay tuned for Heidi’s post of Grace’s portraits!
Adorable baby R was approaching 3 weeks old at the time of our session. Like most babies at this age, he started our time together wide awake and wanting to eat, eat, and eat a little more! Newborns always call the shots at our sessions so we went with the flow, feeding and cuddling and taking some beautiful family portraits. I love the portrait of him in the nest with the beautiful hand-knit cocoon that mom and dad brought along to the session. R had the most amazing eye contact and I think you’ll agree he is quite handsome whether awake or asleep! Finally, after all of that play time, baby R settled in to sleep in my arms. It’s always the best part of the job to snuggle a sweet baby until they fall asleep. Lately, I’ve even had a little shelf to hold them on with my growing bump! Once R was asleep we created portraits with all of the classic sleepy poses, and R looked just as sweet dreaming away as he did playfully alert. Enjoy your sneak peek, we can’t wait to show you the rest!
Sweet baby C was one of 6 adorable newborns I’ve had the joy of cuddling in the past week. Mom and dad brought the cutest little giraffe hat for her to wear and I liked it so much, I had to buy one afterward! C looked like a little doll no matter how we posed her. I especially love all of our garden shots. The combination of purple and yellow looks so sweet together with C’s soft skin and ruby red lips! Enjoy your sneak peek.
April got off to a slow start and my calendar gradually emptied out as every expecting mom called to tell us there was no sign of baby! Then, a little baby boom hit and all of our April newborns were born within a few days of each other! Suddenly, the studio was full of adorable newborns in just about ever spot we could place them. Parents came in telling us that Labor and Delivery was like Grand Central Station while they were there! B was one of 9 sessions we held last week and I had so much fun with him and his family. We kept our session simple and classic and created a great variety of family portraits at the end. They were such a beautiful family to work with, I don’t think they could take a bad photo if they tried! Enjoy your sneak peek!
When I first met mom during our pre-session consult, and she told me about their sweet baby on the way whom they adoringly nicknamed “little squirrel”, I could already feel how much this baby would be loved! Little Squirrel turned out to be sugar and spice and everything nice, and we had a wonderful session together. She was full of smiles from the very beginning, when I was capturing all of her teeny features, to the very end in mom and dad’s arms. I love seeing all those blissful baby grins in her gallery. Can’t wait to show you the rest mom and dad. Enjoy your sneak peek!
9 days before our session, baby H was born weighing over 10 pounds! I love big baby boys because they always seem to be the best sleepers for me. Plus, how could you not fall in love with those chubby cheeks and adorable baby rolls? Baby H was so good to me and snoozed right through our session. Mom and dad brought in the awesome weathered fish decorations from his nursery to incorporate into one of our sets. Mom had shown me photos of his nursery before our session together and it is so cool and unique! I can’t wait to see these portraits hanging in there. H even ended with plenty of giant newborn smiles while mom was loving on him during our family portraits. Talk about a happy boy! Enjoy your sneak peek.
