It’s hard to believe we are already into 2018, and that it’s already February. Every year I make a vow to share more of our work, using blog posts and social media to showcase the amazing families, babies and couples that we get to work with. Then things get busy, our focus goes to editing, shooting, preparing and planning our sessions… suddenly it’s February 2nd and I haven’t even shared any of the work we’ve been doing!
So, I’m going to go back to the beginning of January- to this sweet baby boy that kicked off 2018 for us.
We’ve worked with this family for many years now, and it’s always such a pleasure to see how the kids have grown. Baby Nathan is a LUCKY little boy, with 4 siblings to love and dote on him ❤
welcome to the world little man ❤
Miss Clare- what a sweet sweet little girl! We usually expect and plan that newborn sessions will include lots of time to cuddle mommy, nurse and time to become perfectly calm and relaxed for their session. Miss Clare and her Mommy had a BIG talk before they came, with lots of praise and hope that she would sleep well for her session. I’m not sure that I have ever quite done such a quick, calm session. She arrived asleep and continued to sleep for pretty much the entire session!!
I always ask families to bring things that mean something to them- ways to make the photos personal- family items, mom and dad’s wedding rings, stuffed animals or blankets from their bedroom- it means I get to arrange and plan “on the fly” but I love the challenge. When I saw the mailbox come into the house, my first thought was “oh my gosh what a FANTASTIC idea, then my second thought came… how on earth can we get asleep and calm enough to sleep inside the mailbox?”… refer back to the first paragraph where I said she slept like a dream! Even as I tucked her little body inside the mailbox, she slept for us. I think it’s such a fun and wonderful way to be able to visually see each year how much she has grown, to look back and think… you fit inside that mailbox!!
Thank you for having me capture these adorable photos!
Time has gotten away with us over the past few months- meaning there are SO MANY amazing sessions that we have done, and simply have not had the time to put together posts of the adorable babies and families we have been working with!
Miss Lina is now 5 months old… CRAZY!! Her session was back in January and she was an absolute dream to work with. She had the best big brother in the world, who was so excited to snuggle her and show her off.
Presenting Miss Lina…
Today we are featuring another family on the blog that we have watched grow and expand over the years, and were so excited to capture little Mr. Elliott’s addition to the family. He was very curious in his session, and not entirely sure that he wanted to sleep and miss all the action, but his adorable little face made the session worth it! Patience and all
This winter has been packed with newborns. All these beautiful babies coming through our doors… or in the case of Adeline, us going through hers to meet her. We love doing in home newborn sessions, giving families a chance to relax in their own environment while I bring everything needed for a full newborn session.
Miss Adeline was so precious for her session, so calm and peaceful. Her family owns a tea house, so we had to do a presentation photo for them of course, as well as using a beautiful floral crown made by a local florist!
Presenting Miss Adeline… loved beyond measure ❤
In the year 2016, I have worked with the Parton family a couple of times… first for their wedding in March, where we got to know them really well (I mean, a photographer does spend HOURS with you on one of the most emotional days of your life, it’s hard not to get to know one another) and then recently, we met up to capture the beautiful baby bump that Melyssa is ROCKING right now! Maternity sessions are so much more interesting where there’s a sibling involved- and although Little man E did not want to sit still for the session, we captured some beautiful memories of this time.
We are SO excited to hear the news about the newest addition, and to capture some newborn photos when s/he arrives (the anticipation is driving us crazy… boy or girl?)
Congratulations guys and thanks for having us along to capture this whirlwind, incredible year for you ❤
When I arrived at their home, Miss Acadia was sound asleep in her Mommy’s arms. She was calm, quiet and everything about her felt so peaceful. As I prepped for the session, she enjoyed her snuggles. I was secretly thinking that at any moment she would wake and cry, just as I was ready to begin the session… but she didn’t. A peaceful transfer onto the newborn set and we were able to breeze through many of the photos.
It may have been one of the most calm newborn sessions I have captured. She woke for a feeding, then settled back to sleep for her family photos (even when her four-legged best friend came in for a sniff)
Presenting, Acadia Rae
Thank you so much for having me in your home to capture these photos for you!
