A lovely one year birthday photography session with a lovely family. I have so much fun photographing babies and catching them as they hit all the milestones of the first year: smiling, tummy time, sitting, crawling, walking, and of course turning ONE! This little boy is adorable, and we captured so many sweet moments between him and his parents during our outdoor photography session. I love the photograph of his daddy enveloping him in a hug after he had walked to him, and all the images of him and his beautiful mommy are simply precious. What a beautiful family!
10-Month Baby Milestone Session
I love Baby Milestone Photography Sessions! I especially love returning clients because I get to capture images of their beautiful babies growing over time. (Check out my "Grow With Me" Packages). I first met this handsome fellow at his 5-month Baby Milestone Photography Session, and then had the honor of photographing him here at his 10-month Baby Milestone Session. I had a wonderful time seeing his family again and photographing this little guy. He was a sweetheart and gave us huge smiles, particularly when we let him play with some wooden blocks. As a special treat, we were able to capture some lovely images of him with his grandmother - something I think everyone should do!
Studio Newborn Session - Two Week Old Baby
I loved everything about this newborn session! The baby was a perfect doll and slept the entire photography session (I have been on a roll in 2018 with soundly sleeping babies!). The parents were the sweetest and an absolute joy to work with. I also loved the colors, mixtures of grey, pinks, and whites. It is always hard to choose my favorite images from newborn session galleries, but here are a few of the ones I loved. Look how radiant this beautiful mommy is!
I first met these lovely clients when I did their maternity photography session. A short time later, their beautiful baby boy arrived, and I got to work with them again for his newborn session. I held the newborn session in my studio, and like every baby of 2018 (so far!) he slept the entire session. I am on a sleeping newborn streak! Some of my favorite images from the newborn session are of baby in the box, as well as the family images. I used a natural flokati that I recently purchased from Rugs USA, and loved it!
In-Home Newborn Session
I recently photographed this beautiful baby boy for his newborn session. The newborn session was an in-home newborn session in my clients' home. My clients and their beautiful new baby were all incredibly sweet, and the such a pleasure to photograph. I loved so many of the images from this in-home newborn photography session. Here are a few of my favorite photos of this beautiful baby boy, and his lovely parents:
Expecting/ Pregnancy Photos - Lakeside
Maternity sessions make me happy! They are all about capturing love and closeness between couples and the beauty of pregnancy. This expectant mother was absolutely radiant at her maternity session. She and her husband were so loving and adorable together. It was a joy to photograph them. Here are a few images I love from their maternity session:
Studio Newborn Session / Two Weeks
I had the sweetest couple and their new baby girl in my studio for a newborn session. In the last few months I have switched to holding all newborn sessions in my studio and I love it! I have different sets ready for clients and clients get a choice of all of the props in my studio. For this little baby girl, we styled her newborn session with pinks and whites, and because her mommy is a hair stylist we did one special fun set-up. Can you guess which one? Here are some of my favorite photos from their studio newborn photography session:
In-Home Newborn Session / Baby Boy
This in-home newborn session was so much fun and very special to me, because it was my nephew! I photographed this beautiful baby boy for his newborn session when he was just under two weeks of age. The baby slept almost the entire newborn session. I love so many of the images, but some of my favorites are the photos of the newborn against the charcoal background. I also love how the family photos turned out! As a family photographer, I often hold family portrait sessions outdoors. However, I always include a few family photos as part of my newborn sessions, as I believe it is so special and beautiful to capture images of mom, dad, and baby during those first few weeks after birth. Here are a few of my favorite photos from this newborn session:
I had the privilege of photographing this adorable little boy's Baby Session at 5 months! It is the perfect age to catch babies playing with their toes, laying on their tummies, and sometimes starting to sit up. Close-ups are also a must because they are so cute! Here are some of my favorites:
I recently had the honor of doing this baby boy's newborn session in my home studio! He was such a sweet heart, and slept nearly the entire session. Here are some of my favorite images from his newborn session:
I had such a lovely experience photographing this beautiful new family. They requested half their gallery to be images of their new baby and half to be images of them together with their baby. As much as I love the images of their four week old baby boy from their Newborn Session, I am obsessed with their family photos. I love how they turned out! Here are a few of my favorite images from their Newborn Session:
I was delighted to come back and photograph this beautiful family for their baby boy's newborn session. I had done their maternity session just a month before. The baby was an angel. He slept nearly the entire session, and I was able to capture beautiful posed images as well as sibling and family images. His older sister was a rock star! Patient, so loving with her new baby brother, and so sweet to work with. Here are a few of my favorite images from their Newborn Session:
