I met Chantel and Jeremy in early April for their maternity shoot and I have been waiting for Micah’s session since early May. He decided to wait till he was over 42 weeks before finally making his debut. Micah Joseph Hirsch arrive May 24th and weighed in at 8 lbs 14 oz. There is nothing little about this boy. He was 22 inches long, had a 39 cm head and the longest feet. Mom and dad aren’t overly tall but I hear there are some tall genes in the family. When Micah first arrived at the studio I wasn’t sure if he was going to let me curl him up. It took a bit of time but once swaddled he couldn’t help but sleep. He is definitely a boy and has a deep boy cry too. Thank you Chantel and Jeremy for having me document this special time for you. Here are a few from our session.
Dominic is one lucky little boy. His mommy’s best friend, and one of my best clients, gifted him his very own newborn session. This afternoon I had the privilege of spending time with him. Dominic Alexander arrived at 36 weeks 2 days, on May 12th at 6:14 am weighing in at 5 lbs 13 oz. He is now around 6 lbs 3 oz at last check. Dominic was such a great little model. He is very expressive and did give me several little smirks. Being a bit premature he was still pretty sleepy. He eats well and then falls right back to sleep. He let me try out a couple of new prop poses and loved to be wrapped. Thank you Shaylon and Matt for bringing Dominic to me and to Johanna for such a great baby gift.
Today was play school picture day! I love this day and every year feel blessed to be able to capture memories for these littles who will be entering kindergarten in the fall. All of my girls came through the Summerland Baptist play school and have such fond memories of this time. Seems like so very long ago (my oldest is graduating in just a few short weeks)! Each of these sweet kids have a lifetime ahead of them. I am sure their parents are excited to see what is ahead for them. Thank you Mrs E. for having me back year after year!
After some setbacks, I finally got to meet this little man for his newborn session. Tate Huxley was born three weeks ago, on his due date of April 28th and weighed in at 8 lbs 5 oz. He arrived to see me, wide awake, and being three weeks old already I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Tate is such a sweetie, but really didn’t want to miss out on anything. He did make me work for sure, and with it being so warm outside my studio was a hot box for both of us. Mom brought along a special knit blanket in memory of his grandma. He did sleep for short periods of time between snacks allowing me to capture some sweet memories. I love his little feet and toes. Tate has beautiful eyelashes of course, being a boy! Near the end of our session he fell into a deeper slumber and allowed me to try some new of my new props. Thank you Karolina and Trent for bringing me your sweet baby. I enjoyed our session together. Here are just a few from today…
I spent part of my day getting to know this handsome little guy. Behrik is 9 days old today and was born May 9th weighing a whopping 9lbs 2oz. He arrived wide awake and mom tells me he is either awake or nursing. I soon discovered that the key to keeping him asleep, or with eyes closed, is my signature mummy wrap! It worked on and off, but Behrik had me digging deep and thinking outside of box to find poses he liked. I love what we came up with! Thank you Maegan and Tyler for letting me snuggle your sweet baby boy today. Here are a few images from our session. Enjoy!
