I won’t lie… I love newborn sessions best when they are done in the first two weeks after birth. This is when babies tend to sleep the most, and are the squishiest, and usually have great skin. Miss A came to my studio a little after the ideal time, but honestly, I would have never known. She slept all the way through the session — even with my different bowls, buckets and stool props. She was a dream, and I love the images that we captured of her newness.
I don’t get twins in the studio very often, but when I do, I feel blessed. There is such a bond between twins, it’s truly amazing to see. It’s always more difficult when you add another tiny human into a photo session, but these two were superstars. If one was fussing a little, I would just add the other twin next to them, and it was an almost instant settling for both of them. I even managed to catch a moment of Mister M sucking on his sister’s nose for comfort.
I give kudos to parents of twins as well. I always said that I wanted twins. And then I had one baby. And I thought to myself, “How would I manage with TWO of them at the same time?” But twin parents just seem to have the knack for taking things in stride and making it work (and making it look easy while doing it.)
So, enjoy your precious little bundles… they won’t be so little forever.
Little Miss E took her time getting here… our newborn session was planned out for the week prior, and yet, still no baby. She may have taken her time coming into the world, but she has lost no time in capturing the hearts of those around her.
Miss E made me work to get her to sleep, but once she was off into dreamland I was able to get her into many different poses and props. I am sure that some of the set ups were surprise for her mom and dad as well, since they were also able to catch up on their zzzzz’s during the session. I love it when the parents feel comfortable enough to fall asleep during the session and catch up on some much needed rest.
Enjoy Miss E’s sneak peek!
This sweet little girl came into the world at the start of February. Her parents and older sister had been waiting for this day eagerly, and it was quite the celebration when she arrived. Since they have opted for the Baby’s First Year package, I am looking forward to watching this little girl grow over the year.
Our session was so smooth… she slept like a dream, and snuggled in with her big sister for some great poses.
Here are some images from our newborn session:
This little guy was so full of charm. He was such a happy guy for our session, and although I can find 2 month olds hard to predict, Mr. S was so laid back, and happy to do whatever we asked. Put him in a basket, yep, he was okay with that. Give him some tummy time… yep, still good!
I love capturing these moments, as in a baby’s first year they grow SO much.
It’s only the 3rd week of January but I’ve already been busy with quite a few sessions. But this sweet little girl was my first newborn of 2017. She was due to be born on Christmas eve, but had other plans. Despite mom wanting to meet her in 2016, she decided to wait until 2017 to make her entrance.
After seeing mom and dad there is no doubt that these two make gorgeous babies. Enjoy your sneak peek!
I got the call just last Friday that a new little boy had come into the world and the parents were looking for someone to take his newborn shots. Luckily, I was able to meet with them on Tuesday, when Mr. T was just about 2 weeks old, which is the perfect time for sleepy newborns.
Mr.T was a perfect gentleman, letting me pose him while he spent the morning dreaming. We also headed out to the trails around my home.. there will be some interesting photos coming up on the blog next week! Stay tuned, and in the meantime here is a sneak peek… enjoy!
Mr. E was a superstar at our session. He slept, well, like a baby, and enjoyed all the snuggles from big brother throughout the photo shoot. All that dark hair and squishy rolls… don’t get me started on what a heart-breaker this little guy is going to be! Mom and dad, you’re going to have your hands full with your two adorable boys.
This little sweetheart has grown so much since her newborn session back in July. She was extra serious for our session, but we managed to get some smiles and giggles out of her throughout the day. Baby V is one of my Baby’s First Year clients, so I am looking forward to seeing her again when she is one!
I was so excited when Ashley and Cory asked me to do their newborn photos. You see, I have photographed a couple of their cousins newborns, and family sessions, plus Cory’s sister’s wedding this past September. I think this family is amazing. They are all so sweet, and truly capture the essence of family life — love and laughter.
Little baby J is going to be so well loved, and I hope that these photos captured just a tiny bit of his super cuteness.
