I always love getting calls from clients when they have a new addition to their family. I had done a newborn session with this family for their previous daughter a few years ago, and they called up me again to do a newborn session for their second daughter. It was fun to reconnect, see how big the babies have grown, and capture their growing family for them. To include brother and sister in the session, they got to pick out fun hats for their new baby sister for me to photograph her in, plus I brought along some coordinating tutus that big sister adored as well. Introducing, Baby C., 20 days new to the world!

Meet the cutest sock monkey in town!

Have you heard of the Buy Nothing project? They are community based groups (usually on Facebook) where, instead of throwing away or trashing stuff you don’t need, you donate it, or give it away to your local community. My local Buy Nothing community is so much more than that, though. It’s a community of people […]

Have you heard of the Buy Nothing project? They are community based groups (usually on Facebook) where, instead of throwing away or trashing stuff you don’t need, you donate it, or give it away to your local community. My local Buy Nothing community is so much more than that, though. It’s a community of people who give to those in need, who lead a helping hand, who create an atmosphere and environment where random acts of kindness and good deeds are done every day. It’s pretty special, I have to say, to be both on the receiving and giving end of the Buy Nothing community. It was within this community that I met this special family, who welcomed their new baby boy into their lives, Baby R. They excited came over to capture his first few days, complete with adorable props and some family mementos. I enjoyed meeting mom, dad, and Baby R., and hope that they enjoy the lovely photos!

 

Meet Baby R. His mom brought over the cute little crowns as props, aren’t they precious?

Beautiful momma and beautiful baby.

This sock monkey was handmade by great-grandma. I love it when families bring special toys like this.

We got some awake shots of him as well, here he is on a blanket also made by great-grandma.

Another cute crown. And look at those lips! So squishy!

Meet Baby B!

 Such a sleepy boy

 

Hey look! He opened his eyes and looked straight at my camera for me. 

Being held by dad

Such an easy baby to photograph. I wish all my babies were this sleepy.

I love his spikey hair, it was such awesomeness.

Baby E., his three year old brother, and his parents came to visit me today for his newborn shoot. Baby E is a fireball who came four weeks early, so at the shoot today he was about the size of a full term newborn, about seven pounds. I have to admit, I have a real soft spot in my heart taking pictures of brothers together, and I was happy that Big Brother O. was amicable to posing with Baby Brother E for me and the camera. Even if I did have to break out the sweethart candy bribes. Big welcome to Baby E and congratulations on the new addition to the family!

 

Meet Baby E. I love shots like this, because it shows you just how tiny they are at this moment, and they’re never going to be this tiny again. Here he is, cradled by daddy.

 

Giddy up, little cowboy

 

Such sweetness! I love just how peaceful he looks here.

 

Don’t let all the sleeping poses fool you, he was a tough cookie to get to stay asleep. But when he was asleep, you could just nom on his little nose.

 

This is my favorite brother pose. Big brother is all, what IS this in my lap? Baby E is all, hey, I’m cool, just chillin’ in my blanket which matches my eyes.

 

Big Brother wasn’t so sure about all this picture taking.

 

They were much happier outside, I even got a little smile!

 

The new family of four!

One of the wonderful things about living in this technological world is making friends with people both near and far from you. People with whom you may never have interacted with or been able to meet before, people who become friends who support you through the times of joy and the times of sorrow. One of these friendships I made through an online journaling group, and she recently had a baby which I was blessed to meet and photograph. Thank you for letting me capture this sweet moment of his life!

 

Meet Baby B, newest addition to the family!

Don’t let that first picture fool you, he was awake for most of the photoshoot, checking things out.

But when we did get him asleep, he was oh so sweet.

I call this his fighter pose. Check out the little fists!

I love getting pictures of mom and baby together. So often we’re behind the cameras, and don’t get to capture these moments with our kids.

Since he wasn’t sleeping, we took him outside and let him check out the world. Hello world!

We snuck in a picture or two with dad as well.

He still doesn’t look too sure about this “outside” concept

And a family shot as well

Baby L’s father and I are in book club together, and I was honored to be able to take pictures of his adorable baby girl.  She was soooooooo cute, had gorgeous eyes, and such a great sleepy model as well!  Her mom had some special baby jewelry which had been worn in the family for a few generations, which we were able to photograph Baby L. with to preserve the memories.  I’d never seen baby jewelry before, they were a tiny tiny bracelet and an even tinier ring that were just so adorable.  Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Meet {Baby L.}

The baby jewelry…you can just make out the teeny ring on her right hand

She had stellar eye contact for such a little one

Big yawn…I love the pink hat here as well

Who doesn’t love a baby in a lion’s hat?

Look at those lips!

I think she was telling us the photoshoot was over at this point 🙂

sleepy, sweet baby

Hello folks!  I took a break this summer as I spent more time with my family, and tried to adjust the balance between doing photography sessions and family life.  It’s been a challenge at times, and I thank everyone for their patience this summer!

I got back into the action photographing this delicious newborn boy last week.  He was very alert and awake, and poor little bub just wanted to nurse from his mama.  It made for a interesting photo shoot, but we got some beautiful awake baby shots before we finally got some fun sleeping baby shots.  Introducing baby boy P!

Baby W is so pleased to meet you
