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…)
I love milestone photos. It's so much fun to have my newborns come back- watching these kids grow up is such an amazing experience. One of the things I loved most about his session was the adorable heirloom outfit that his father was photographed in for his six month photos. Incorporating family heirlooms is wonderful because it adds a personal touch to your images. And if anything needs to be personal, it's your photos!
Here's Lawson in his daddy's outfit. The blue color matches his eyes perfectly!
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…)
In December while I was hosting Christmas Minis, Brecken's grandmother stopped in and mentioned that she was interested in some milestone portraits for her grandson. After she called me to set up an appointment, I had the family stop by the studio to look through props, outfits, and get an idea of what they wanted for their session. The reason I do this is to help the milestone sessions go faster having everything prepared ahead of time and I can focus on photographing those precious children. I was super stoked when they showed up with two adorable family heirloom props- the yellow car was his grandfather's and the red one was his grandmother's!
