Newborns and Heirlooms

One of the questions in my styling questionnaire is if there is anything from home you would like to be included in your session. It can of course include an outfit that you really like - but it is always extra special when you bring in items that mean a lot to you.

When thinking about something to use - it can be something you had as a baby, maybe something you first bought for baby when you discovered you were expecting, or you can also bring in somethings that aren’t necessarily heirlooms, but things your family is passionate about. A fur sibling, sports equipment or certain team items, even musical instruments! There is a lot of room for creativity and it truly makes you session unique to your family.

This little sweetie got to have some photos done with her moms baby blanket, and also in a dress that belonged to her mom and her aunt when they were babies. Click through her gallery below to see more from her session.

Emilia

I got to do this super cutie’s photos recently. She was of course a dream to work with! Click through her gallery to see some highlights of her session.

PS - do you like composite images?

Newborn - ish ;)

I had the privilege of photographing sweet Amyra in my studio last weekend. It’s newborn -ish because she was almost 7 weeks old! She was a good little girl though, and did a mix of awake and sleeping for her session.

I am a bit excited for spring if you can’t tell by all the flowers :D Click through her gallery!

Little Prince Julius

You may have noticed I am a bit behind on the blog, so I will now be trying to play catch up on all the wonderful sessions I’ve had.

Meet Mr. Julius

He was such a little sweetheart. And about a month old! He slept like a log…pretty unheard of for that age :) Click through the slideshow below to see more photos!

Newborn Session - Laszlo

I'll be posting a mix of things for a while, current sessions, and also sessions that I need to catch up on!

This is little newborn Laszlo. A tiny 6lbs!

He was WIDE AWAKE for the first two hours of the shoot. The good news is newborns are cute sleeping or awake. (Just a tad bit harder to pose)

Parents - don't stress if your little one doesn't "behave" perfectly. I take the time to make sure baby feels safe and comfortable. Besides, as I said above, awake newborns are just as cute!

This little man was such a sweetheart, with a huge personality. Hope to see you again in the future baby Las!

Fresh 48: Staci

This little lady decided her birthdate, as mom had a scheduled c-section, but she came the day before!

Fresh 48 sessions are some of my favorite to shoot. There's something about a new baby, and the quiet of the hospital room. I also love watching parents interacting with their newest family member. Whether it's the first child, or the fourth, there's so much love and tenderness.

I was also lucky enough to shoot Staci's maternity shoot about a month ago. (you can check out the blog post about four posts back)

This girl has lots of cousins ready to shower her with some love too! (Don't be shy about getting siblings or other family members into your shoot.)
