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
We’ve been slaving away in Santa’s private workshop here at the studio, and after much work, hunting and searching for the perfect pieces… it is complete!!

It has been almost 2 years since this adorable couple tied the knot, and had us capture their amazing wedding day!
We were very excited to hear the news that they were expecting their first baby, and were booked and ready for newborn photos… but sometimes, as we all know, things don’t always go exactly as planned, and life gets very crazy after a baby joins our lives. It was 5 months later that we heard from them again, asking us to capture some family photos now that Mathis was bigger and life had settled down a bit… we were ecstatic.
This little man is adorable, there’s no two ways about it! Those eyes… I think I mentioned how envious I was about his eyelashes about 5000 times during our session!
Congratulations on your growing family Crystal and Val, and thank you for having us along to capture the ride! ❤
It’s been a busy couple of months here at the studio, and we have so many adorable babies, families and children to show you! It’s been a while since we’ve had anyone up on the blog, so starting with the adorable Mr. Cole seemed like a great idea.
Cole was so tiny and precious, sleeping like a dream for his session (once he decided that sleep was a good idea), but when he was awake, it was incredible. I’ve never had the privilege of photographing such a calm, alert and attentive newborn- he followed the camera wherever I went, and seemed to be peering straight into the lens!
Grandma and Grandpa came later in the session to bring Cole’s big sister, and she was just as adorable as Cole, hamming it up for the camera! It became an entertaining studio, with a giggling toddler, content baby and my own cat decided to come join the show and try to steal the hearts of grandma and grandpa 😉
Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your adorable little family.
We see a lot of babies in studio… a lot! But then there are some that come in like Mr. Lucas and his big sister, and they are so adorable that words can’t even do justice… so we will let the photos speak for themselves!
congratulations on your beautiful family, and thank you for trusting us to capture it! ❤
