A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family and their brand new baby, just a few days old! Typically the newest of newborns sleep so much you can get those sweet posed, sleeping photos, but this girl was wide awake almost the whole session! We still got some adorable photos of her, proud big brother, and her glowing parents.
I had the honor of shooting photos for this family again after they welcomed baby Will into the world! What could be more fun to photograph than a sweet, snuggly little baby and a fun, active big sister? (Oh yeah, and two proud parents!)
I am always honored when I’m asked to photograph a newborn, and doubly so when it’s for a new client. Little Elaine is a truly precious gift, and she did great in her modeling debut! It certainly didn’t hurt that Dada & Papa did an amazing job collecting props and coming up with ideas. Isn’t she perfect?
Baby Hollyn made her appearance just about two weeks ago, and I had the privilege of meeting and photographing her last weekend! She did an amazing job – sleeping when she needed to, barely crying, giving me a couple of smiles, and being chill through the whole session. She’s one beautiful, sweet baby! Here are a few of my favorites.
Remember this beautiful maternity session from a few months ago? Well, I got to meet the one-month old for family photos last weekend. Check out the photos – could he be any more perfect? There’s so much love in these photos, I had an incredibly hard time narrowing them down!
One of my favorite photo families welcomed their third baby girl last week, and I had the honor of taking some newborn and family photos of them. They invited me (well, I invited myself) into their home just a few days after birth, because I was hoping to get both those sweet sleeping baby photos (the ones where you can pose them however you like), along with some awake photos. Unlike my newborn daughter, Abby was wide awake the entire time! I may not have captured a lot of posed shots of her, but I definitely got to showcase her beautiful newborn eyes and get some great shots of the family. You can tell they’re so in love with their newest edition!
My dad, the girls (ages 3 and 5.5 weeks), and I took a 7-hour round trip to Shelbina, MO yesterday to visit my grandma. She was tickled to meet Miss M and see Lil’ Miss K again. She’s 93 years old but still hasn’t lost the “touch” when it comes to babies! Miss M has now met both of her great-grandmas.
I can’t believe my baby girl is already a month old…and I have to start thinking about work in a week and a half. *Insert sad face.* But oh my, how she’s grown! She is gaining weight much faster than Lil’ Miss K did (who had reflux and a milk protein allergy) – I think she looks like K’s size at two months! She doesn’t even feel like a newborn when I hold her anymore. *Insert another sad face.*
Here are her first comparison photos that I plan to do each month.
We welcomed Miss M to the world four weeks ago, today. I should have posted birth and newborn photos, but my facebook followers have been seeing pics of M for several weeks now, so it feels a bit redundant. I’ll catch you up with two newborn photos, and two photos from today, when Miss M met her great-grandma. They share a middle name: Mae. Her great-grandma still has the touch with babies and was pretty tickled to learn about her namesake. Love!!
This little guy is such a blessing! You really do forget, very quickly, how small babies start out. I was thrilled to take these documentary-style newborn photos last weekend. Dylan did a great job with our nearly two-hour long photo shoot. The hardest part has been narrowing down the photos! Here are just a few of my favorites.
