As always, I enjoyed having the chance to photograph a baby girl and bring out all of my flowers and ruffles and headbands. A little backstory on how I met her family:Two years ago I wanted to start a project on adoption. I contacted the Henderson family to see if they were interested in having me come and document their adoption. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to capture that process as it ended up taking place out of state. Though I did not photograph their daughter Ella’s newborns, I have photographed their family portraits and Christmas pictures for the past two years. I was so excited when they asked to do a newborn session for Ella’s baby sister Emory, who they also chose to adopt. (more…)
In August 2016 I donated a gift certificate to the Children's Trust Benefit Gala and Silent Auction. Kathleen's mom contacted me afterwards to let me know that she had won and that she wanted to do a newborn session when she had her little girl. I'm always excited to photograph newborns and especially a newborn baby girl! From September 2016 up until now I have had 29 boys and only 5 girls, so I loved pulling out all the pinks and purples, flowers, and ruffles.
I love the color palate her mom chose! Here are a few of the lovely images from Kathleen's session. If you know of anyone looking for Newborn Photography SC, please feel free to pass on my website and information. (more…)
Ethan was so great for his newborn session! After I had my knee surgery in 2016, I had the pleasure of meeting Ethan's mom at my physical therapist's office. If anybody has ever had physical therapy, you know that in spending so much time there, you get to know everybody. While I was there I started talking to her and she found out that I was a newborn photographer. I was so excited when she emailed me this past fall letting me know that she was expecting!
In general, I let my newborn clients know that I have all the props and backgrounds for their session. However, some clients will bring in something important to them and I'll see if I can work it into their session. Ethan's daddy loves the St. Louis Cardinals! How cute is he in his first Cardinals hat. (more…)
Right before Christmas break I had four newborn sessions back to back. Talk about crazy! It always surprises me when these teeny tiny mamas have such big babies! Beautiful little Leah (actually, not so little at 9 pounds!) was literally perfection for her session. After having a slew of boys in the studio, it was so much fun to pull out all the frills and flowers and lace.
I like to give parents a teaser with a few samples from the session on social media. Occasionally, I choose to do an Animoto video instead of a collection of static images. Here is Leah's teaser video that was shared on Facebook. (more…)
