My second newborn of the day last Friday was also a baby C! I must admit that I was a little nervous going into this session. Baby C was diagnosed with hip dysplasia at birth and now wears a little brace to help her hips set into place. I was unsure if I would be able to accomplish all of the sweet sleepy newborn poses that her parents had fallen in love with when they booked and I didn’t want them to be disappointed with the session. But mom and dad insisted that it didn’t matter to them. This was baby C, at this moment in time and they wanted to capture it. When I met them I knew instantly that they were more in love with this little girl than with any silly pose. And capturing THAT was a far greater accomplishment! Baby C was perfect in every way. Turns out I had nothing to worry about because she was a breeze to photograph! She loved being posed and smiled throughout our entire session together. I was certainly reminded of why I love this job so much. Thank you for trusting me with your gorgeous baby girl mom and dad! Enjoy your sneak peek.
You may remember this gorgeous couple from their maternity session sneak preview here. Well they were back last week with their new bundle of joy, baby H. He was so adorable he made my heart melt. I just love the images of him and his family from the end of our session together. Enjoy your sneak peek mom and dad!
Baby J wins the award for our most awake baby ever at the studio. People always ask “what do you do if the baby doesn’t sleep?” and I usually respond “well they all fall asleep eventually, so we create other shots during their awake time and go with the flow until they finally drift off.” Well, baby J proved me wrong. He actually was awake for an over 3 hour stretch! So here is a little peek at what we do when baby isn’t sleeping. Family shots, details shots, swaddles and sets. No you won’t catch baby J hanging from a branch, but you will fall in love with all of his beautiful little features and the love his family has for him.
I just adored my shoot with baby C last week. She was perfectly relaxed and sleepy through out our session together. Mom and dad were beaming with pride and seemed like they had a lot of fun watching their little girl make her debut. This little one is surely a princess! Enjoy your preview!
Little baby O was such a dream to photograph last week. She made a healthy, happy, and very early arrival! In fact, her newborn session was originally scheduled for a month from now! Like all babies, she had her own schedule and I’m so happy I had the opportunity to meet her even sooner. She was so sweet and sleepy and I had fun getting to know her family. Doesn’t mom look amazing?! Enjoy your preview!
Baby B made us all work at the beginning of his shoot. He was so alert to start our session but after a big feeding, he was happy enough to look around and take it all in. That is my favorite time to capture images of newborns interacting with their parents. I love the way they turn towards the voices of their parents and mimic their expressions. I remember my daughter as a newborn trying to latch on to my husband’s nose when he nuzzled her. I wish I had an image of that to look back on and it thrills me to capture moments like that for other families. Baby B finally did fall asleep (as all newborns eventually do!) and we ended up with a really great session! Enjoy your preview.
Baby R came into our session a social butterfly. She loved looking around and getting to know me a little before settling down to sleep. I love using newborn’s awake time to capture images with parents. It’s really important that they start the session with a feeding so they contently gaze at the camera or into their parents’ faces while I snap away! A full belly always does the trick. Baby R did fall asleep soon enough and we captured those sweet sleepy newborn shots I know mom and dad will adore. Enjoy your sneak peek!
This little peanut looked just like a doll! She had the most tiny delicate features and long lashes. Once we got her to sleep she slept right through to the very end of the shoot. I especially love the images of her in the garden. We are just about to retire that set so she is a perfect way to end our run with it! Enjoy your preview!
It was something about this little girl. I felt like I had to take my time with every little detail. She was so beautiful. Mom and dad were so in awe of her. Simple and perfect. I think newborns bring out the very best in all of us. Maybe that’s why I love being around them so much. They are a little bit of heaven right here on earth!
Hosting yesterday’s webinar put me a little behind in the preview department and this is one I have been DYING to share! If I had more time, I would show off EVERY image from this session. Baby J’s session was perfection from beginning to end. He was too adorable for words, slept like a dream, rocked every pose, and brought along two gorgeous parents to boot! Thanks for your patience mom and dad. Hope it was worth the wait. Can’t even wait to show you your full gallery!
