My favorite newborns are those that bring along their big brothers or big sisters that were once “my babies”.  I get to see how my babies have grown into toddlers. I get to hear their little voices, see them walking, and most importantly try to coax them into a portrait in a much different way than when they were first here as a newborn. Maclyn was one of the special ones that brought her big brothers with her, and I couldn’t have been be more excited! For now, I’ll just share some of Maclyn; because after all, every little girl deserves the spotlight at one time or another. I hope you enjoy her newborn portrait sneak peek! XO!

After a long string of newborn girls, I finally got my hands on a sweet baby boy with most awesome spiked hair.  My oldest had CRAZY hair at birth, so of course I immediately fell in love with this little guy.  To be honest, I am not sure that he fell for me as quickly as I did him, but with patience and persistence on my part he began to see things my way and posed perfectly. 😉

Zivan’s mom has spent years sharing in the first moments with new families.  It gave me goosebumps hearing her describe her own experience of meeting the new man in her life just a couple days before Mother’s Day.  Quite fitting, to say the least.  Enjoy Zivan’s session sneak peek. XOXO!!

Brooklyn kicked off my week of newborn baby girls in the very best way. She was comfy, sleepy, and perfectly beautiful.  I think it’s safe to say she’s a princess.  Enjoy her sneak peek.  XOXO!

Over the past 5+ years, I’ve had more than my fair share of experience as newborn photographer. Because of that, I am confident when I say that Eleanor would be considered a dream to photograph by any baby photographer!!  She’s beautiful, tiny, curly, sleepy and smilely. What else could I as for?!!!

I’ve been on a baby girl streak for awhile! I will be back soon to share more of Eleanor and the other NINE newborn girls that I have worked with recently. Tomorrow, I’ll break that streak when a little boy comes to see me for his newborn portraits.  For now, enjoy a little sneak peek of Eleanor’s session while I head off to prep for the little guy that I get to meet tomorrow.

Beautiful baby Kate posed for her newborn pictures at just 4 days old! When Kate’s mom contacted me to book her session, I was over the moon excited. I photographed her big brother two and a half years ago (where does time go?!!); so as excited as I was to meet Kate, I was just as excited to see her family again! Sometimes I am amazed at how lucky I am to share in these special times with SUCH GREAT families!! Enjoy her session sneak peek. XOXO!!

I have been photographing newborns for five years now. Wow, did I just say FIVE???!  Needless to say, it is rare that I experience a “first” at this point, but sweet baby Henley was a first for me; she was my ‘first’ third newborn from one family. How awesome is it that a family would trust me with not one, not two, but three of their precious babies?! For them, Henley was a first as well; she is the first baby girl. Congratulations to her wonderful family!  Enjoy a couple sneak peeks from her session yesterday…

Through the beauty of Facebook, I knew exactly what to expect when Amelia came over for her six month baby pictures.  A big toothless grin, the brightest brown eyes, a gorgeous head of hair, and two parents that are rocking the new mom and dad thing!! I seriously can’t get enough of this little lady. She was as good to me at 6 months as she was for her newborn session.   Have I mentioned how much I adore this smiley, teething, pushing up, tripod sitting, toe grabbing stage?!  <3

My baby photography sessions wrapped up just before Thanksgiving last year and I couldn’t have timed that any better!! You see, my own boys are in the sweet spot; they’re growing up but are still SO far away from snapchat, twitter, selfies, girlfriends and graduation (GAH!)!  Christmas around our house is pure magic; and I need to savor every minute of it. The countdowns, the wrapping, the baking, the decorating, the music, and the cards. ALL OF IT IS MAGIC!!

While I adore working with my babies and their families, it is always nice to take time to recharge myself and revisit where my love for photography first began.  On December 1st, I decided I would document each day leading into the holiday in effort to capture our traditions, travels, activities, decorations and who my boys truly are at this incredible time in our lives.

As promised with my last newborn session, I am vowing to share more baby pictures and session sneak peeks here! I mean, how could I not share pictures of this adorable 6 month old baby girl?!! Do you remember her as a newborn?  She still has her gorgeous head of hair, but now, you can also see her big brown eyes and perfect toothless grin. I could have spent all day with her.  It won’t be long until I am back here to share more from her 6 month session, but for now, just enjoy the beauty in these four little images.

Whether I am sharing newborn photography, baby pictures, senior portraits or personal work, it is always difficult for me to let the images speak for themselves. By the time I get to blogging, I have formed relationships, made memories, and shared a sacred time in the life of a family. The experience goes much deeper than pictures alone. This was certainly the case with Lillian and her newborn pictures.

Lillian’s gorgeous mommy contacted me right after she was born.  It must have been fate because had room on my schedule to photograph her precious baby girl just 3 days later when she was 12 days old.  As luck would have it, she lives in New Albany, just a few minutes from me, so not even the snowy February morning could stop us. The only catch was that Lillian’s Daddy couldn’t be here on this day. Again, fate worked in our favor because I was able to make time to see Lillian again a few days later, this time at her home for family portraits. WOW! I am so glad that all of this worked out so perfectly, because not only did I capture the kind of gorgeous posed sleeping baby pictures that I typically do, but I was also able to spend time with her and her family in their home. Prior to this, I hadn’t shot lifestyle (in-home) sessions for anyone other than my own family.  Now I can see why photographers fall in love with this style of newborn photography; seeing a new family in their own environment is nothing short of breathtaking.

Her nursery is quite spectacular, it was surely designed for a princess. The walls are lined with the most gorgeous pink velvet paper, the details on her furniture are second to none and she has an 8′ giraffe overlooking her crib. However, the sight of her mommy and her rocking in the chair together makes everything else,  quite simply, pale in comparison. Stunning!

At this point I think I can say, happy one month birthday sweet Lillian, and let the pictures speak for themselves!

My focus has always been my work as a newborn photographer and my relationships with the families that I have the pleasure to meet. It certainly hasn’t been a secret that keeping my blog current typically takes a backseat and too often gets overlooked all together.  My sessions, and relationships will always be my priority but to try to improve on the blogging front, I am going to start to “sneak peek” session images here. I see the importance of sharing each beautiful baby that I get to work with, and if I learn to make it a part of my routine, I may just be able to stick with it (crossing my fingers)! So without further ado…

Introducing precious baby Lillian, 12 days old and absolute newborn perfection!  Typically my newborn photography sessions are booked months in advance, and sadly,  I have to turn many new moms away when they contact me at the last minute to book.  On rare occasions, the stars align perfectly and I am fortunate enough to add a spur of the moment newborn baby as beautiful as Lillian!  This photo session truly must have been meant to be. Not only did I have room on my calendar for Lillian, but she only lives 5 minutes from me in New Albany. Not even a snowy February morning could stop us!  Here are just a couple sneak peeks. XOXO!

It is extremely important to me that each of my babies and new moms feel relaxed during my newborn photography session. Once my work begins, the family can sit back and enjoy watching their little one pose for the camera.  Normally the room is filled with girl talk. Pregnancy, ultrasounds, delivery, the first week home, baby showers, nursing, and family are really just the tip of the iceberg. When a friend brings her first born baby girl over for portraits, that girl talk is even more special! Parents will agree; the first month after the arrival of a new baby passes in the blink of an eye.  I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend several hours connecting with one week old Juliette and her gorgeous momma. XOXOXO!!

Being a baby photographer surely has it’s perks. Happy, adorable, little boys with rather chubby cheeks that love FaceTime and videos of Bruno Mars come and play with me. How could I not love six month portraits?

On a serious note though, I adore his gorgeous mom. She was an intricate part of my first year working as a high school senior photographer. James’ mom was the masterful makeup artist that worked alongside me and helped each of my senior girls to feel even more confident and gorgeous than they already were. For that, I will be forever grateful! I remember the anxiousness in her voice when she was first expecting; the fears of delivery. Fast forward a year later and she is a confident mom head over heels in love with this little man in her life. I couldn’t be happier for her. xoxox!!

Newborn portraits are extraordinary. Those first several days of a little ones life are nothing short of spectacular and need to be savored. As a newborn photographer, I believe there is no better way to hold onto those moments than with timeless portraits. However, the baby photographer in me also sees incredible value in capturing the personality of the little one that so tightly grabbed ahold of your heart six months later.

Every year we are fortunate enough to spend ten days in; umm…..paradise.  Well, if you consider living amongst sharks (picture to prove it below), stingrays (close enough to step on), alligators, palmetto bugs, jelly fish and snakes paradise then, yes, we spend ten days in PARADISE!!!  In all honesty it is our paradise and the day we say goodbye we start counting the days until we go back the following year. The reality is the creatures don’t matter (except at night when I fear that the palmetto bugs could be creeping around in the dark) all that matters is that we have ten days together with no commitments other than to sit on the beach and lounge in the pool together as a family.

Yes, just like years past our Hilton Head vacation pictures are the personal photography I enjoy most each year. Yes, we are still in that sweet spot that I mention so often, so our boys don’t even consider being anywhere but with us while we are on vacation. Yes, our kids are still love sitting under the old oak tree in Harbour Town and watching Gregg Russell.  But this year, we did see a couple signs of my baby getting older; no swimmies and no training wheels.  Wow, I remember our first summer on Hilton Head Island when he couldn’t yet walk. I sat him on the beach for a picture and he fell face forward into the sand. Now he’s doing cannon balls to the bottom of the pool, riding his bike to the beach and joining us on ten mile rides to the Salty Dog.

As we head back to Hilton Head this summer, and every summer actually,  I look forward to making memories as a family with or without those pesky sharks and snakes.

As a newborn photographer I secretly hope to catch a sleepy smile with each and every portrait session. More often than not, during the session my clients will see me in position sensing that the sacred smile is coming.  I will just patiently wait, posed with camera in hand, ready to photograph that brief glimpse into the smiles and laughter that will develop over the next year.  That patience tends to pay off and with Oliver it did, not once but twice! Even beyond his smiles, Oliver was a newborn dream to photograph. He was handsome, sleepy, and brought with him his two parents that are head over heels in love with him.  Seriously, how did I get to be such a lucky newborn photographer?!! <3
