When your mama lived on Oreos here entire pregnancy…. baby is going to eat Oreos for her birthday smash 😉
Welcome to the world Brady! ~3 weeks New~
Newborn photography is my jam. And one of my favorite ways to capture these new little ones is by doing Lifestyle sessions.
Nothing is more sweet than capturing a sweet baby in their new nursery…all carefully set up and made just for them weeks and sometimes months before they arrived. This little guy’s nursery was positively adorable . I was so excited to capture him in it. Just check out that sweet teepee and the perfect color coordinated walls and mobiles??
Not into lifestyle photography? That’s ok! I offer adorable posed newborn photography in my studio as well!
This sweet little dude was just SO fun to work with . Mom called me and was hoping to get him in for a session as little guy had been born 6 weeks early and hadn’t gotten in for a session yet. Luckily, this little man slept through it all and was just a rockstar in his posing and even cracked a couple sweet smiles for us.
She is one of the happiest little people I’ve met. I was rewarded with soooo many beautiful smiles
during her session… so much so that I couldn’t stop smiling myself. I mean, who can’t smile when they see that contagious,
gummy grin staring right back at you ?
Olive is set up with my Watch Me Grow baby’s first year plan.
I get to see this little bundle of cuteness every 3 months which is always so fun to see
her change and show off all her new skills each time I see her.
I positively love capturing Birth Stories. When a long-time friend and client contacted me and asked me to capture her 3rd baby’s birth at Mercy Birthing Center with the midwives, I had to say yes. I delivered my youngest with the midwives at Mercy and couldn’t think of a better place to capture a birth. The midwives and nurses at MBC are positively amazing and I was thrilled I’d be able to capture them in action! I got the call right when I was putting my own baby down for a nap. Dad sounded anxious and told me mom’s water had just broken and they were heading in NOW.
I quickly called my sitter and was at MBC within the hour. When I got there, mom was extremely uncomfortable as labor started very fast for her. After several more hours of laboring, we found out mom and baby had an infection and they’d need to do an emergency csection. Mom was a ROCKSTAR with how she handled everything. The midwives got her into the OR and within minutes, a beautiful little cry was heard and Serenity Rose made her appearance. This beautiful girl arrived earthside true to her name. Such a calm and quiet baby….and so, so alert! Dad was all smiles.
Mom got to visit with baby Serenity as they prepared her for recovery and dad got lots of baby snuggles.
Once in recovery, mom and dad Facetimed grandparents and older siblings . The kids were thrilled to have a baby sister and there were lots of smiles all around the room listening to big sister talk to her newest little companion. It was such a pleasure to be there capturing Serenity’s first Birth Day.
Sometimes birth plans don’t work out. But every birth is beautiful in its own special and amazing way and I was so very happy to be there to capture it. Happy birthday sweet girl and congratulations to this beautiful family of 5.
I couldn’t have asked for a more gorgeous evening for this session with the beautiful Eckerle family!
I think of all sessions, my favorite is a fresh 48 session. There is something about coming into a hospital room or birthing center and meeting the proud parents , excited siblings, and squishy, perfect new little baby all bundled up in the bassinet. Seeing those amazing, big bright windows, crisp, white sheets, and the overall cheerful atmosphere that just envelopes you as you walk in the door.
I just loved meeting little Henry’s family. He was the cutest little dude. I had the privilege to be there when big sister Claire met him and it was adorable watching her flit back and forth around the room… pausing ever so often to check out this new little stranger who everyone was paying attention to. I think Claire is going to have a lot of fun with her new little playmate.
These two boys were positively precious . From start to finish I think they woke only once. I got many smiles and of course loved all the snuggles.
I have been horrible about updating my blog, but I HAD to post this of little Lennox. With that dark, long hair and sweet little face. He was just a doll ! Welcome to the world little guy!
It (quite literally) feels like yesterday that I was at her house taking Maggie’s newborn pictures. This sweet girl has grown more beautiful each time I see her. Just check out that gorgeous, long hair! We did Maggie’s pictures in a lifestyle/documentary style and it was so much fun capturing everyone interacting and loving on little Maggie. She is one very loved baby girl.
Kendell was an absolute dream to photograph. This sweet girl slept her entire session. And she made so many soft coos and smiles. It was so much fun capturing her and her beautiful family. Big brother seemed extremely proud of his baby.
This background was actually the wall that Kendell’s daddy made for big brother’s room. How cool is that?
Of course, we had to get family pictures in front of it!
I LOVED this wall!
She had the most delicate little features.
This sweet boy wasn’t a huge fan of sleeping…but boy did he give me some of the sweetest smiles ever.
It was such a privilege to capture his newborn pictures.
