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!
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!
Benjamin was my last boy of 2016 and rounded out my boy sessions to 25 total for the year. This was the year of boys! I was very grateful that he was in a milk-drunk state the entire session. He slept like a dream and I felt like I could hang him upside down and he wouldn't care!(more…)
Almost a Halloween baby, little Carson came in for his newborn shoot at eleven days old. For his session, his mom brought the tie his dad wore on their wedding day and it was such a great prop for the session. I can't wait to do milestones with Carson and watch as he grows into his dad's tie! Newborn photography sessions are so much fun for me- getting to play around with tiny hands and feet and round cheeks. I seriously have the best job.(more…)
