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…)
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…)
A little backstory on Savannah's session:
Her mom contacted me shortly after Savannah was born. In general, I book a month in advance or more in advance and I always encourage my moms to plan ahead and book early. My schedule for the month of December was very full and I was not able to book a morning session with her. (I like morning sessions for my newborns because babies tend to be calm and sleepy at that time.) However, Savannah's mom really wanted to do a session in my studio and to make that work, I asked them to come in on Friday evening. In the end, time wasn't an issue because Savannah was fantastic! She was the first of four December newborns that I shot back to back and she set the tone for each of them- they were all amazing.
On social media I share a teaser for the parents so that they get to see some of the photos before I get to editing and sending them their full batch. Sometimes I choose to put the pictures into a movie and Animoto is a great way to do this! Here is Savannah's teaser video. (more…)
