I had the privilege of meeting this family a few years ago when their daughter Ever was born. It was so great being able to see them all again when they welcomed their newest addition, Stone into their family.

The kids all took turns holding Stone and the group images were some of my all time favorites.  Once we wrapped up with the family, I let dad leave with the older kiddos and I spent the rest of the session focused on Stone.  I think he opened his eyes for about 2.5 seconds and then went right back to sleep.

    Every once in a while, a client will schedule a petite newborn session instead of a boutique newborn session. Petite sessions are short and simple and the focus is 100% on that beautiful little newborn baby.

    Calvin came in for his petite session and my heart just melted.  His lashes were probably the longest lashes I have ever seen on a newborn baby! And his beautiful head of hair would make anyone swoon.  I love that in our short time together, he even managed to pop open his eyes for a little bit.

      I loved the color palette mom chose for little Madison’s newborn session.  The cream, the lavender, the grey… they all look so beautiful together.   The goal with every newborn session is to provide a gallery of finished images that will all compliment each other. This way, every family has options for how they choose to display their work.

      Madison ws one of those dream babies.  She was awake when I laid her down on the beanbag and within a minute or two, was fast asleep.  She cracked her eyes open a few times but only long enough for me to capture one or two images and then she went right back to sleep.  Made it super easy for me to get through all her set ups and get lots of great images for mom and dad.

        Every once in a while I have a mom reach out to me when her newborn is a little bit outside of that typical two-week timeframe.  Sometimes their little ones have to spend extra time in the hospital to get healthy, or sometimes moms see how quickly their little one is growing and changing and they realize just how important it is to document and preserve their newness before it passes by.  Other time, families live quite a distance away and they come as soon as they are able to travel.

        That was the case with little Christopher.

        It was a big weekend of firsts for this guy. First airplane ride.  First time traveling.  And first time at a photo shoot.  Though you would never guess because he was such a natural!  While photographing a six week old newborn session can be pretty challenging, it’s also pretty great.  Not only are they more engaged with the camera, they often are smiling at this point, too and sometimes I’m able to catch some adorable little grins.

        Sharing some favorites from Christopher’s session. Some awake, some asleep, and some smiley ones, too!

          When Aiden’s parents filled out their pre-session questionnaire, mom had mentioned that she really wanted to do an Anne Geddes style session.  If you’re familiar with Anne Geddes work, you know that those are some big shoes to try and fill!  I figured they wouldn’t want me to dress their son up with a big sunflower hat, so instead I went in another direction and tried to create a compose image of Aiden with four different animal hats side by side in different buckets.  (Truth be told, it’s the same bucket but edited to change the color in photoshop.)  I actually really love the way the final image came together and I think mom and dad were pretty happy with it as well!

          He was an adorable little dude with his nose crinkle and pouty lips. And every time he opened his eyes, it was as if he was staring right at me!  The last two pictures in his gallery really say it all.
