I met this family when mom first found out she was pregnant, and wanted to come in for a family session/pregnancy announcement session. They are seriously the most gorgeous family, and I had fun working with them all. Now, mama is just weeks away from her due date…so we met again for a maternity and family session at sunset.

The light was simply stunning, but still couldn’t hold a candle to mama’s gorgeous glow! She looks SO AMAZING! I can’t wait to meet their little one for his newborn session.

I don’t get twin newborns in the studio very often, so I am always THRILLED when I do. These two are 6 weeks old, and I met their mom and dad during mom’s maternity session.

Mom was STUNNING for her maternity session, and I could NOT believe that she was nearly due with TWINS. 5 days later, babies arrived!

I had the help of my wonderful friend, ANA, from AnaBella Photography for this session. Having an extra set of hands was soo helpful with two, and we were able to get through so many adorable set ups with these twins.

My photographer friend, and new partner Ana of AnaBella photography and I worked together for this beautiful newborn session. Mom, Dad, and baby are all gorgeous, and dad had such a great sense of humor.

I just *adore* newborn photography, and how different each baby is…even at just a week or two old. This little man was so sweet, calm, and handsome. How stinkin’ cute is he in the little dragon hat his mom and dad brought in? SOOO CUTE!

It has been a few weeks since I have had a newborn boy in the studio, and I just love love love choosing set ups for baby boys. Mom and dad are so clearly smitten with their little man, and I had so much fun meeting this family!

This little dude was so chill during his session, and made the best eye contact! Typically, it is easier to photograph newborns if they are SOUND asleep because they get a bit wiggly otherwise…but not this one! He rocked it, even wide awake.

This mama requested NEUTRAL colors, props, and outfits. Which, of course, is totally my jam. I am so drawn to simple, neutral colors. Her session was just before Easter, so naturally we had to try my adorable bunny bonnet on her.

Isn’t she just stunning?

I tend to gravitate toward neutral, organic colors when photographing newborns…that’s just my personal style. But I LOVE it when mom’s request color, because it forces me to think outside my normal style and I always love the results. This mama has two boys, and wanted to celebrate the arrival of their tiny girl with some PINK!

She looks amazing in pink, and I just love how feminine and pretty she looks. She was a total dream baby, and big brothers were sooo good.

I know that life can get crazy during baby’s first year, and it is so easy to skip milestone sessions between 3-12 months…but I just have to say, between 6-9 months is my absolute favorite age to photograph.

This little man totally rocked his 6 month session. He was just so charming and adorable, and I am so happy to have met him. I just love having happy, loving families in studio. Warms my heart!

Some great milestones to capture include: first smiles, tummy time, sitting unassisted, clapping, “cruising”, crawling, eating solid foods, standing, and MORE.

I have found that baby’s attention span between 3-9 months can be short, and we often don’t need a “full” 60 minute session. I will be holding “MILESTONE MINIS” each month, where you can bring in baby and capture these fleeting moments. Sessions will be super simple, quick, and easy.

I had another session with a 6 week old newborn, and she was amazing!! The whole family is gorgeous, and they were just so sweet! I had such a great time getting to know them, and I just love that their little one was soooo good to us. At 6 weeks, she wasn’t interested in some of the curled up newborn poses, but we were able to get some pretty stinkin’ cute sleepy shots after she dozed off!

Typically, newborn photography is best done during baby’s first 2 weeks, but this little one rocked her session anyway! Mom and dad are so smitten with their little one, and totally have this whole parenting thing down already.

Here are a few of my favorites from their session:

This little muffin has the most gorgeous eyes! I am pretty smitten with the entire gallery, but here are a few of my favorites:

This little one is 9 months old, and LOVES her mom and dad. It was so cute to see them interact with eachother, they CLEARLY adore eachother. Milestone sessions are such a great way to capture those HUGE milestons, like baby sitting on their own, baby crawling, standing, etc. I just love this age!

I had such a great time getting to know this family! They were referred to me by one of my favorite clients, so I knew they would be great to work with, and they didn’t disappoint.

Although this was primarily a family session, their littlest one fell asleep toward the end of the session…so naturally we got some adorable classic newborn shots. Baby is 6 weeks old, and typically those curly, sleepy newborn poses are done before baby is 2 weeks old…but this little princess was sleeping so soundly we were able to get some adorable sleeping shots.

I have had some fantastic luck with older newborns in studio lately, and I will NEVER turn a newborn away for being too old! We can capture gorgeous images at ANY age, and sometimes we get lucky with a sleepy older baby and can try these sleepy poses too!
