In teaching photography, I often get asked the question “what happens when the baby just won’t sleep?” Well, that depends how you approach your session. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned as a photographer is to let the baby lead the way during a shoot. Each baby is a unique little person. Some are alert, some are sleepy. Some love to be curled up, some love to be stretched out. My favorite part of a newborn session is the beginning, when I get to know the baby. I like figuring out what makes them tick and creating the session around what keeps them happy. Baby L started our session wide awake. He was so strong and had amazing eye control already. I love creating portraits of newborns when they are awake just as much as I love the sleepy shots. About an hour in, baby L finally fell asleep in my arms. Parents usually say “I’m sorry they were so much work to get to sleep” but I assure you all, cuddling newborns to sleep is the best part of my job! I loved my time snuggling L and once he drifted off, he rocked every sleepy shot we tried! Enjoy your sneak peek.
Meet two of our newest baby-planners! Mom is a photographer in Massachusetts and we hit it off instantly at her pre-session consultation a few weeks back. I could have chatted with her all day. In true photographer fashion, she shopped for some amazing hats for us to play with during our session. C and C were born ready for photos. They totally rocked their newborn portraits! We even pulled off a portrait with both of them just hanging out in our sling. Thanks for the great day V family. I’m already excited for our next play date! ~ Heidi
Baby C and his family visited the studio on a snowy winter morning last week. The light coming in the studio windows was gorgeous reflecting off of all of that white! The studio was nice and toasty and baby C cuddled right up into all of our sets. I love our snowy set from this session. I’m enjoying playing with different textures and fibers this winter. Of course, it was perfectly fitting for the day of C’s visit! Enjoy your sneak peek!
We had the pleasure of meeting mom and dad to-be for their maternity session back before the Holidays. We were so thrilled to hear that our first newborn of 2013 had been born while we were away for our winter break! I had a great time photographing this handsome little guy. Is he not one of the most gorgeous babies you have ever seen? I want to reach right through these pictures and kiss those lips. I can only imagine how mom and dad must feel watching him sleep. He was even wide awake for part of our session, staring right into the camera lens. He’s a natural! Enjoy your sneak peek!
I had so much fun with these 4 sweet kids and their mom, aunt and grandmother the week before Christmas! I’m not going to lie, I was nervous about how a session with 2 month old twins and 2 older siblings would go. I was so pleasantly surprised by how amazing big brother and sister were with their new babies. They were such good listeners and did a wonderful job holding the babies and posing for me. I was so impressed with them. I think half of this gallery will be the four kids all together because I have so many favorites! After the family portraits, we took some of just big brother and sister on their own, and then we captured a few sweet newborn sets. It was so much fun, the time flew by! Thanks for such a great session. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I had so much fun with this sweet newborn boy last week. He slept like a champ on the bean bag and loved hanging out for our branch shot. After that though, he was ready to wake up and party! He would sleep just long enough to pull off a shot and then seem to say, “get me outta here!” We took some adorable shots with props that mom and dad brought along from home and then some sweet family portraits to wrap up our session. Can’t you tell that this little guy is very loved?! Enjoy your sneak peek!

We first met 1 year old M just a few weeks ago for his first birthday cake smash with Mariah. I fell completely in love with him just from looking at the portraits she took! He was back at the studio as a big brother just last week and we had such a great time. He finished his pictures with little brother in no time! He crawled right up and showered him with hugs and kisses. If I could capture half of how adorable these two babies were in person, I think we’d have success! Newborn M was totally irresistible as well. Mom shared my taste, loving all of the soft creams and whites for our photos. I could photograph a newborn session with nothing but a cream blanket and love every image! Can’t wait to show you the rest mom and dad. Enjoy your sneak peek!
It has been a long time since I have had the time and opportunity to travel on location to a client’s home for some lifestyle portraits. When sweet baby T was born early and had a long stay in the hospital, we rescheduled the B family session out to the Holidays. I think traveling to the B family’s home (and being so warmly welcomed by them <3 ) really helped me to capture them as a family and all of the love they have for their baby girl. I am totally in love with this session! Watching mom and dad cuddle her and make her smile melted me. It reminded me of why I love what I do so much. I left thinking “I wish I could do this for every family!” In 2013 I will be traveling much more and hopefully doing more sessions like this one. Thanks B family for being so much fun to spend the afternoon with. T is so gorgeous, I already can’t wait for our next session! Enjoy your sneak peek! ~ Heidi
The adorable G family has been traveling a long way to the studio ever since biggest sister C, now 3 1/2, turned 1 year old. Since then, I had the joy of helping them welcome little sister S, now 2 1/2, as a newborn and then celebrate her first birthday. I was thrilled to hear that they were expecting a baby BOY this year to complete their adorable family! Little brother L was adorable, a great sleeper and adored by his two sweet big sisters. They were so full of excitement around him that I’m surprised we nailed a shot with them standing still for a moment! The carriage image was especially important to mom because we used the very same carriage when S was a newborn. Thanks for coming to visit us again G family! Enjoy your sneak peek!
