Newborn baby sessions are done in the early days of the baby’s life to ensure they are sleepy and able to sleep in those sweet little tuck positions. There are other tricks that help to keep them sleepy and happy too- lots of milk and a warm room with white noise. All of these tools help make the session easiest on baby. This sweet little girl was at the perfect age and slept like a champ. Her parents were so kind and open to getting creative, which I love! Here are some photos from our newborn session.
Beach Pregnancy & Home Newborn Sessions
I have been lucky enough to get to photograph this beautiful family since their first son was born. When they contacted me to do a maternity and newborn session as they were expecting their second child, I was so excited! We did the maternity session at the beach around sunset and it was completely magical. The lighting and weather were perfect and their little boy was such a love. So many precious photos and I adore the color palate! The newborn session was done in-home (as they always are) and again, it was a wonderful session. Their boys both did an amazing job and I love the photos we captured! Here is a little taste of both sessions.
Happy New Year Friends!
It has been awhile since I have been on the blog- it was a really busy fall photographing families for their holiday cards and I had to take a break from blogging for awhile. Now I am back to a normal shoot schedule and I am excited to show you some of the photo sessions I captured. This is a family I have had the pleasure of photographing since their second child was born. They recently had a third and it was an amazing shoot. The kids were so in love with their baby brother and the parents were kind and easy going. All-in-all it was a wonderful session! Here are some favorite moments captured:
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:
And suddenly you were our everything.
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.
Precious in Pink
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!
A little sneak peek
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!
Love makes a family
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!
