It’s no secret that I absolutely love photographing newborn babies. I really enjoy going to people’s homes, often places I have never been to explore new ideas and get creative. I especially love when people come to me with ideas they have seen or personal items they want to incorporate because it gets me outside of my creative “box” to try something new. And often the ideas I go into a shoot with to serve as inspiration can lead to something so much better than I had hoped for! Here is a series of photos I did for a family who had just welcomed their little girl into their family. They had a few ideas going in and I was so excited to see them come to life! And the basket photos at the end with the floral wallpaper were a complete surprise as I saw the wall in their bathroom and HAD to use it! So many fun and creative photos came from this session, here are just a handful:
Photographing precious newborn babies is such fun for so many reasons. As a mom, I am no longer in the “baby phase” of life and I miss those tiny little humans. I get my fix each and every time I get to photograph a newborn. I also absolutely love watching parents in the early stages of parenthood. There is such a newness, a love that is so rich and full- and I get to capture it for them. This sweet baby girl was perfectly sleepy throughout her session with me. I love the pictures we took and had such a great time documenting the love in this home.
Sweet little Jemma was so tiny and amazing at her newborn session. We started with family and sibling shots which she was mostly awake for, then we did the sleepy newborn posed shots and she slept like a champ! We captured such a nice variety of photos and this family was so fun to work with. I really love newborn sessions because there is so much love to capture (and I get my newborn baby fix 😉) Here are the photos from this precious newborn session!
I completely respect my clients’ privacy which is why I always ask before using their photos online (blog, social media, etc). This family was fine for me to show a small sample of what we captured and I admire and respect that decision. I am always grateful to be able to show off my work and the amazing families I get to work with. Here are a few photos from this precious newborn session!
Newborn sessions are usually done within the first 14 days of the baby’s life to ensure they are sleepy and will easily go into those little tucked poses. This can be hard to do for some families who are just settling into life with a newborn. During this stage of my life I was exhausted, emotional and kind of a wreck. That was not at all the case with the family of this recent newborn shoot. The parents were calm and patient with the process. Dad read books to big brother while mom nursed the baby. During the shoot, they were encouraging as big brother approached his new baby sister. Watching this family gave me such joy and I love the images we captured!
It seems that lately I have had a newborn baby girl streak- so many girls being born! This newborn session was just focused on capturing photos of this sweet baby girl and I am so in love with all the pictures we took! Mom and dad live near the beach so we did a mermaid photo and I adore the color palate in these! Mom and dad snowboard and ski in the winter so we did a creative image with the two in one. The floral photos were a last minute addition as I saw a beautiful floral arrangement in their home which gave us a soft feminine touch. We captured their pup, beach bag, first tutu and a sweet poster in the crib. Such a fun shoot and I really love the variety of photos we took!
These beautiful twin big sisters were so excited to take photos with their new baby sister. They each took turns holding her and were such great helpers through the session. I have known the twins since they were three years old and it was so nice to see how they have grown into little ladies. The love and affection they showed for one another and for their precious sister made my heart warm. I love the pictures we captured!
I love meeting new families and getting to see the interactions and family dynamics. This beautiful bunch had welcomed a baby girl to their family and they were kind, patient and had such a loving & playful nature. I really enjoyed our session together and the raw emotion that we captured. Here are some photos I love from our session!
A few weeks ago I photographed a family who was welcoming a newborn baby girl into their family. We started the session with big brother who was thrilled to have a baby sister. He was so gentle and sweet with her, it was precious to watch and document. Mom wanted to capture their family in a way that felt natural and less staged, so we did a series of them all in their bed as they interacted as a new family of four. For the newborn solo shots, they had a bunch of floral props which were perfect for a spring newborn session and made for some beautiful photographs. I just love the color palate throughout this series of images! So many special photos were captured, here are my favorites from this amazing newborn photo session:
I have had the pleasure of photographing two of these darling boys as newborns. It is wonderful to watch their roles change in the family and see how they have grown. So many precious photos were captured in this newborn photography session but I especially LOVE the pajama kids stacked on dad’s back! I am so lucky to get to do what I love and meet such amazing families!
