Mom and dad contacted me when their baby girl was one month old. I told them that most of the images on my website were of newborns 5-12 days old and I would be happy to capture their little girl, but wasn’t 100% positive we would get all of those newborn squishy poses that they have seen on my site. Boy, did this baby girl surprise me! She did amazing and I even got to use some of my new props and headbands. Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your miracle!
I went to high school with this sweet baby boy’s mom in Murfreesboro and we reconnected through Church. Our oldest daughters are the same age and I knew that she would probably do well for the newborn session, but I wasn’t sure how her younger sister would do as sibling shots can sometimes be tricky with younger children and newborns, but this session was a dream. ”He slept like a baby”! This family also signed up for my baby steps plan and I’m looking forward to watching this baby boy grow! Presenting baby “W” and his adorable big sisters!
This baby girl was such a sweetheart. I recommend newborn sessions be done in the first 5-12 days to ensure they are sleepy enough to get all of those squishy poses. I love photographing little girls because I get to use all of my girl props and bows. People ask me all the time where I get all of my headbands and I tell them that etsy has become quite a obsession. One of my particular favorites is Simply Sweet a little lady boutique. I encourage all of you mommas to check out her store!
It has been my new goal to capture those beautiful portraits of MY OWN children. This is my beautiful little girl and the reason I started photography. I look at her and cannot believe how old she looks. I want to bottle up this time and keep her my precious little girl forever. I always want her to think I’m “cool” and want to snuggle at night, but since freezing time is not an option I want to make sure I capture every moment of her sweet life. I want to capture the essence of her so I can keep those memories forever. Photographing my own children is surprisingly more stressful than photographing other children, but we had such a wonderful time capturing these images. She helped come up with some of her own poses, picked flowers and had fun practicing ballet in the field of clover. I’m pretty sure some of these images will be decorating our walls soon. THIS is why I love photography. Capturing the essence of childhood!
This baby girl was a dream for her newborn session! She had the longest eyelashes and the sweetest baby features. Her big sister also did a great job. Photographing newborns with siblings under the age of two is usually challenging, but big sister laid still for long enough to let me get a few pictures of the two of them together. Mom wasn’t huge on the full body naked baby pictures, but that worked out great with all of the precious new diaper covers and props I had gotten recently. It is always exciting when someone books my first year package because it give me a chance to get to know the family and I just love watching these sweet babies grow. Thank you so much for sharing your sweet family with me and I look forward to watching her grow!
