I had the extreme privilege to photograph this wee boy today who just happens to be the nephew of my photography mentor Alli Peck of Glow Portraits. Bryce John arrived on Jan 31st, 3 1/2 weeks early and weighed 6 lbs 3 oz. He almost decided to make a very early entrance back in November but thankfully he stayed put until now. Big sister Andi joined us at the start of our session. She loves her baby brother. I haven’t seen her since her newborn shoot almost 3 1/2 yrs ago. Bryce is a gassy little guy but with some snuggles was a great little model. Thank you Melissa and Jamie for bringing your sweet kids to me today and to Auntie Alli for trusting me to fill in for you and letting me capture these precious memories.
I spent some time in my studio today with the sweetest little girls. Sara Jean was born three weeks early on January 27th and weighed 6 lbs 7 oz. She was joined today by big sister Ellie for her newborn session. Ellie is such a loving big sister. Sara was the most cooperative little model and was hardly awake for our whole time together. Dad is a member and when Ellie was born their photographer captured an image in his red serge. It was important to do that today and I am super happy with how it turned out. Thank you Erica and Bryan for trusting me with these sweet memories. You have a beautiful little family. Here are a few from our session today!
Natalie and Jim are some of my long time loyal clients and I have had the pleasure of photographing the maternity and newborn sessions for all three of their children. On January 3rd, Natalie’s birthday, sweet Elena Mary was born. She was bigger than her brothers were, weighing 8 lbs 1 oz. Daniel and Peter adore their new sister and some of the images captured today show such gentleness with her. I absolutely love her head of hair and with very few protests, she made our session so easy. At the end of our time together she opened her eyes and just stared. Mom brought along a special knit blanket and I love the resulting image with it. Thank you so much Natalie and Jim for coming back to see me and trusting me with such special memories. I have enjoyed watching your family grow. I look forward to a family session this spring/summer.
These images make me smile. Sabina and Cody are expecting a little boy February 16th and today we spent part of the afternoon capturing special memories of this exciting time in their lives. At just over 34 weeks Sabina has the most perfect baby bump. Together they were so easy to photograph. Are you sure this is your first ever photoshoot?? I was excited to try a new set up and the results….well, you decide. We included their two little fur babies at the end of our session in studio and in a few images out in the snow. Thank you Sabina and Cody for being such easy models. I cannot wait to meet your sweet baby next month. Here are a few of the images from today. Enjoy!
After 7 newborn boys in a row, today I kicked of my 2018 newborn sessions with this sweet baby girl. Libby Iris surprised her parents by arriving almost 5 weeks early on December 8th. She weighed 6 lbs 7 0z, despite her early arrival and unlike most little ones born that early, she only spent a few days in the NICU. (I did get to meet her on one of my work days!) Big sister Alyse joined us today for Libby’s newborn session. I love having older siblings and Alyse was so sweet to her baby sister. Even though she was over 3 weeks old, Libby was a great little model. Mom refinished this super cute high chair and brought it along for us to use. Just a disclaimer….mom had a hand on Libby at all times. Thank you Amanda and CJ for trusting me once again with your newborn memories. I look forward to seeing you all again this fall.
