All newborn clients receive a “Welcome!” email with instructions to contact me once baby arrives. Graham’s Daddy’s arrival email had me giggling all day. It read, “Oops. He came early!” Nothing like a new soul to keep us on our toes and throw us some curve balls along the way. Thankfully sweet Graham arrived perfectly healthy and, to top it off, incredibly handsome!!!
I was excited to have an older sibling to work with during Amelie’s session, knowing big sister could safely snuggle her, but this first capture blew me away! As soon as big sister held Amelie, the grinning began. This image is a sign of an incredible friendship to come, and had me near tears. As our girls grow and life takes them their separate ways, I am thankful they had many moments like this together, to solidify their relationship and grow to love and cherish one another. Amelie will surely admire and adore her big sisters.
I say it every time – Seeing my newborns as they celebrate their milestones leaves me AMAZED at the incredible change the first year of life entails. These little loves and their smiles, waddles, tummies and toes make it hard to keep on schedule while working. Who wouldn’t want to put the camera away and play all day?
When Lily’s Mom let me know she was bringing fresh flowers for the session, I was unsure how well things would go. What colors? What sizes? How would I incorporate them? Would the baby or I be allergic? When she agreed to clipping the flowers to use them as I wanted, I was excited. When I wrapped her fair skinned beauty and placed her in a basket surrounded by the flowers, I was inspired. That afternoon, I drove over to purchase beautiful, safe, silk flowers for the studio, and have used them for nearly every little girl’s session since. Because…who wouldn’t be inspired by a new soul and flowers?
Miss Ellie was so suited for pinks and flowers ~ delicate, feminine, perfect. She and her family were such a treat to have in the studio. Welcome to the world, sweet Ellie!
Incredibly blessed to capture the newest addition to this gorgeous, loving family. John was so peaceful, his sisters so eager, and his parents as wonderful as always. Enjoy!
Had a wonderful time capturing Landon and catching up with his Mommy. Have to say, this little dude is all boy…and all cheeks. Yummy, isn’t he?
Little Maggie made me stop and gaze throughout her session. Yep…total distraction. I mean, look at the button nose, yummy rolls, grins and perfect pixie. There are days working is really hard, for all the right reasons. : )
