Some highlights of the year include a BUNNY!! Yes, an adorable bunny who sat right next to it’s new baby brother. Seeing couples who’s wedding and/or engagement I photographed become parents. Documenting older siblings love on their brand new baby sibling. Traveling all over the state for these. All the beautiful nurseries. And last but not least, alllllll the babies.
I don’t really market it, but I absolutely love photographing newborns. There’s something special about that newborn baby time of life. It’s exhausting but full of so much love. I walk into each and every one of these homes and that love just surrounds me. It’s such a privilege to document this time in a family’s life.
My newborn sessions are more lifestyle than portrait based. I love those sleeping squishy baby photos and can’t get enough of them sometimes, but I definitely don’t have that touch. I thrive in the interactions, the moments in between, those small gazes from a mom to a dad as they love on this new little one they get to call theirs. It’s the most special time.
If you’re expecting a baby and want to inquire about me photographing your new family, I would absolutely love to hear from you! Fill out our contact form, and include all the important things like due date and location, and I’ll happily send you all the details about newborn portraits. Since I have my own two babies, plus a full time wedding business, I can only handle a few newborns a month, and in busy season sometimes I can only handle one! Contact me as soon as you begin to consider a lifestyle session, so I can block that time for you!
Full disclosure here: I did not keep a list of my newborn sessions last year like I should have. While I searched my archives, double and triple checked to makes sure I grabbed at least one photo from each session, it’s very possible I missed a family or two (or more). If so, I’m so sorry! I promise it’s not intentional. I loved each of the families I got to photograph, and truly consider it an honor that you let me in your homes to photograph this special time!
