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.

Maternity & Newborn Session

I am often asked when it is suggested to shoot maternity photos. I generally recommend 30-34 weeks, depending on how the mom-to-be is showing and feeling. There is a sweet spot where the pregnancy is still comfortable yet the mom clearly has a bump that can be seen. We don’t want to wait too long or baby could come early or mom could become a bit more immobile.

Newborn sessions are done in the baby’s first 14 days of life to ensure they are sleepy enough to capture those precious tucked up sleep shots. It is also the time before baby acne and dry skin start to appear. Here is a sample of a recent maternity and newborn sessions that I did for this loving family!

Little surfer girl!

Typically newborn sessions are done within the baby’s first 14 days of life. This ensures sleepiness, flexibility so they can go into those tiny tuck poses and also is the window of time before baby acne and dry skin are in full force. Well, although we slightly missed that time window (she was 3 weeks old), Jessie was definitely the exception to that rule and slept like a champ! We did the shoot at her gorgeous home near the beach where mom and dad had amazing props and a perfect setting for the shoot. I adore the photos and loved working with such a sweet little angel!

Rock on!

A couple years ago I photographed this family when their oldest daughter was a newborn. We did some really fun and creative shots using musical instruments to tie in the dad’s musical career. For this shoot, we photographed the newest member of their family using new instruments from dad’s collection. Big sis was such a sweetheart and had lots of love to give her baby sister. Another wonderful shoot with this loving family!

sweet baby emma has arrived!

Caroline is a darling little girl who I photographed when she was just a little baby. Well, she recently welcomed her baby sister Emma to the family! Emma was sleepy and so beautiful at just 8 days old. And she and I share a birthday! I really enjoyed meeting her and seeing how Caroline has grown up. It was a really special shoot and it was so nice to visit with this loving family. Here are my favorite images from the shoot!

a perfect little angel.

Chase Leo arrived several days early and could not be more adorable. I photographed him at 6 days new and he was so tiny and handsome. Chase’s mom loves fashion so we took pictures with his tiny little Tod’s shoes. And daddy is a huge baseball fan so naturally we did pictures with baseball props. I am in love with these photos and I am thrilled to share some of my favorites!

Precious Princess.

I recently photographed a beautiful newborn princess named Pareesa. She was so tiny and adorable at just 6 days old. Her parents had so many wonderful and creative props and ideas, it made for a really unique shoot. As football fans, they had the perfect pink knit football hat and tutu combo. Her dad was a musician so we did photos on her tiny piano and next to Dad’s guitar. And since mom had a sweet tooth, we surrounded Pareesa with chocolates on a platter. We also did a very special shot with the baby wrapped in her mom & dad’s wedding cloths. Here are some of the photos we took:

Sweet Emma Jane

I recently photographed Avery and her newborn sister Emma. Avery was so sweet and full of energy. She was thrilled to become a big sis and was really good with Emma. We started off the session with sleepy newborn baby shots and then did the sisters together, followed by family shots and then newborn awake shots. This was such a darling family and I really admire how easy they made it look to have 2 little ones. Here are a handful of my favorite photos from the shoot:
