We had a great time doing the Valentine’s mini-sessions. Although not everyone arrived in a Valentine’s mood. I finally got mom’s little Valentine to smile and cooperate, but this photo just turned out too cute not to share.
At 6 days old I think this little guy has the modeling gig down!
When you do a lifestyle session in someone’s home you aren’t quite sure what you will have to work with but as soon as I saw this table — yes, he is laying on a table — I had to ask mom if we could use it. I’m sure they thought I was a little crazy at first but the final image turned out to be one of their favs and mine
There are “moments” when your rowdy almost two-year old can’t sit still. This for sure is going to happen when trying to get a family shot during your newest additions newborn session. BUT, this is real life. Big brother’s contagious laugh and smile is all him so how can it not make you grin?! Is this the perfect family image? No, but who cares when it is your family. Live. Love. Life!
Big brother is enjoying this newborn photo session!
Somehow it happens… call it luck or just a real quick click of the shutter. When you’ve got siblings that are barely two years apart you hope, and pray, to get that one shot mom and dad will love as much as you do <3
Isn’t this little book worm the cutest?
As our two start back to school today it is with happiness knowing the house will be a bit more calm during the day but also a little bit of sadness as the house will be a bit more calm during the day! Best of luck to fellow parents and most importantly to our educators with whom we place our little ones with ♥
These are just a few of the photos from this family’s amazing journey. I’ve been both their maternity and their birth photographer, and I couldn’t wait for them to get to the studio!
Loved the idea that mom had to include his sonogram picture during his newborn shoot. Apparently he thought it a good idea as well based upon the smile.
I know we’re going to have a great newborn session when the first prop Dad brings in is a saddle!
I love doing Dad and Newborn studio photography sessions. Some of my favorite photos are the ones with new dads. In my birth photography sessions, I get to capture that amazing moment when a man becomes a “dad” – and it’s a transition I always love to see. In my newborn sessions, I get to see brand new dads and the way they interact with their new babies. Here are some really great dads and the pride, and joy, and love I get to see through my lens.
Happy Father’s Day – and thanks to all the fathers that allow me to capture these moments for them.
