Look at this beautiful newborn baby girl! She came to visit me the other week and I instantly fell in love. I first met mom and dad last month for their maternity session. I instantly knew we would be a good match as they were so fun and easy going and I had a great time walking around Yates Mill park getting to know them. I also had a pretty good feeling their baby girl was going to be stunning and have some gorgeous hair, and boy that couldn’t be any more true. Just look at her hair, and those lashes! They make me swoon! Not only was she gorgeous, but she also was so good for her session. She kept teasing me with smiles every time I put my camera down, but boy she could not hold back the huge smile she gave when we draped her in her mother’s wedding Sari. I absolutely ADORE that shot, and hope mom does too! We wrapped her up in a sweet little knit teddy bear hat and wrap to make her look like a polar bear. She has a polar bear and penguin themed nursery which is just too cute! Of course we had mom bring along her stuffed penguin to use in the session as well since we also used it at their maternity shoot.
Thank you so much for sharing these moments with me, and trusting me with your precious baby girl. She is so adored already!
Another beautiful baby girl to blog! Meet baby Rowan. She looked pretty in purple, and green, and white, and you get the idea. She was basically perfect in every way. We started off the session with my typical posing workflow and then moved onto some prop shots with flowers and then she was still so sleepy so we did some natural baby led posing at the end. I love these more natural shots because it really is the baby just relaxing and posing themselves in the way that they are most comfortable. They just look so innocent and baby like. I feel like these are the timeless, classic images that you will look at and remember how your sweet baby was.
So many beautiful babies came to visit me this past fall. That was probably one of the biggest reasons I fell so behind on my blog. Too many sessions and so much editing! Not to mention the business of the holiday season with family and my girls schedules.
Layla was so such a beautiful baby. I just adored her features – those lips and cheeks make me swoon! Of course we had to do a collage of those features to remember them. We used lots of soft, natural colors for session letter her be the center of attention. She slept so well and looked so perfectly sweet in all of the set ups. I wish I could have kept her all day to keep playing and snuggling on her.
I don’t even know where to begin this post. This session was so special to me, in many ways. Mom is also a photographer so it is always an honor when a fellow colleague chooses you to do their newborn session. Even more important was that this beautiful, perfect baby girl is a rainbow baby. A rainbow baby “is a baby that is born following a miscarriage, stillbirth, neonatal death or infant loss.In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better. The rainbow more appreciated having just experienced the storm in comparison.” I was aware of their lost and heartbroken for them the previous year. I know how much they yearned for another baby and devastating it was. When I found out they were expecting again, and that it was a girl I was excited beyond words. Needless to say it was so important to me to be able to capture this sweet miracle baby for them.
Baby Ella was born at 10 pounds! She was full of rolls, which I LOVE! I had warned mom that I have a curse when it comes to photographing my friends newborns. They never seem to sleep! Luckily Ella decided to give me a bit of a break and did sleep for me. She made us work for it, but it was worth it. I adored her session. I think besides her rainbow shot were the family and sibling shots we were able to capture. I loved not only having older siblings, but ones familiar with the camera. They just listened and did their thing and made it easy. Even Ella gave us smiles for those shots as if on queue. It pretty much was a perfect session!
Thank you so much to this family for trusting me with their newest addition. She is definitely well loved!
I had so much fun with this session! Baby Wyatt and his parents were so fun to work with. This sweet baby boy slept so good and long for us allowing us to do some difficult shots. Mom and Dad brought along some personal items to incorporate into the session, which I love. My favorite item was Dad’s guitar. Dad already plays for Wyatt and I can see how special this will be for years to come. Such a special bonding time for them that it was important to make sure we capture it somehow. Baby Wyatt must have totally agreed because he allowed us to pose him withe guitar a few different ways. Of course safety is always a top priority so at no time was the baby left alone on the Guitar. Dad or mom were close by with a hand at all times.
Wyatt is also one of my baby planners so I am looking forward to seeing him again at his 6 month session and seeing what else we can do with this sweet boy!
