We aren’t kidding when we tell parents to come here on the way home from the hospital. Ok, we’re half kidding! But seriously, in most cases, babies who are under the one week mark are SOOO sleepy. Usually we can get twice as many sets because we spend half the time settling them to sleep. Take baby T for example. I could seriously re-do the entire portfolio section of my site with the images from his session (but who are we kidding, my site has barely been updated in a year!). He snoozed through just about every set and pose we could dream up. He had the most amazing hair and lashes. Just a newborn photographer’s dream :0) I had so much fun mom and dad, hope you did too!
This adorable baby girl came to visit the studio last week and she gave us a good run around. Just when I thought she was asleep, her little mouth would start moving and her eyes would pop wide open! And what a gorgeous little mouth she had. Her lips looked just like her mama’s. It may have taken a little extra work for each shot, but it was well worth it because once she settled, she was a perfect little model. In all honesty, sessions like these are my favorite because I get to do so much extra newborn cuddling… which is, after all, my favorite part of the job!
I wasn’t originally going to post the sneak preview from my mini sessions until their galleries went up, but we had such a fun day I just have to show it off! I loved meeting all of these gorgeous kids and even with only 15 minutes of shooting… I’m STILL going to have a hard time picking favorites! Here are some that brought me a smile from the day. Enjoy your preview. More fun to come!
I just adore these two! We ended up with a session right when they were ready for their nap, but can you tell by the pictures?? No way! They were so fun to photograph and I loved catching up with mom and dad who also came in for the twins’ newborn session. One of the very best parts of my job is watching babies grow. Especially when they are this cute! Happy New Year M family!
Baby C must have already been excited for Santa. In 2 1/2 years I’ve never had a baby who slept less! Mom was so patient nursing him over and over. Normally we can do a lot with an awake newborn…. bowls and baskets, knits and swaddles, and of course family shots. Eventually they all fall asleep. Baby C however had to be sucking on something or he was crying. We did trick him into a few shots. We would let him suck on something and then pull it out to quickly so we could take a few shots. He would let out a big roar and we’d quickly replace it!! We did that over and over throughout the session and thankfully managed to get all of mom’s most important shots. We even got a few where it appears C is sleeping. 2 1/2 year old big brother L was so patient and sweet the entire session. He and I played Mr. Potato head and colored for hours while we waited! I hope for mom that C was just having a growth spurt and he’s getting some more sleep these days! Enjoy your preview and happy new year to your beautiful family!
Oh brothers! In her pre-session questionnaire all mom said she wanted was a picture of both boys smiling, with eyes open, looking at the camera. Any parent of young siblings knows how hard that can be to capture! Well I’m happy to report we got it! It’s funny I took over 400 image at this session. Most consist of T squeezing R and R crying, or R smiling and T running out of the scene! haha Of course those all end up on the cutting room floor and only adorable shots like these make it into the final gallery. But, those outtakes do give me a good chuckle along the way! Enjoy your preview and your two beautiful boys mom!
This adorable little man celebrated his first birthday in style with a cake smash at our studio. Do I get to photograph the most beautiful babies or what? I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a baby boy with such a fabulous wardrobe! Mom and I had fun with all of the outfit changes and of course the cake smash with our Sweet Indulgence cake was hysterical. Enjoy your preview!
J and her family came in the week before Christmas for her maternity session. J was the epitome of “glowing”. She looked amazing in her pregnancy and had the most beautiful profile. We captured some classics in the studio and then braved the cold for some outdoor portraits. The photos below where we incorporated the bench dedicated to J’s husband are my favorite from the shoot. There is a light to those photos I can’t quite put my finger on ;0) Enjoy your preview J. Can’t wait to hear your good news!
A and M visited the studio just before Christmas and after meeting them, I know Santa must have been good to them both. They were both so sweet and fun capture on camera. Their beautiful blue eyes stole every scene. Enjoy your sneak preview F family!
Baby R was an adorable newborn from early in December. Like just about all of our December newborns, she started the session wide awake! Don’t you just adore those eyes. She did drift off to sleep of course and we captured some beautiful portraits of her all curled up. Enjoy your preview!
