I saw a post that my mother’s cousin had become a grandmother again. I messaged her that I would love to do some photos of the new little arrival. She had been wanting to have me do some photos of someone in her family for a little while now. This was the perfect opportunity, a baby!! So here are some of the pics from his session. I managed to work with him in a very tight space and get some cute shots.
He was asleep and then awake and then back to sleep. Perfect for getting all views of him!
Brayden decided to make his debut 3 weeks early like his older brother, Brenden. Mom and I were super excited on photo day and were texting back and forth talking about how much he sleeps. Well we jinxed ourselves. This boy didn’t sleep the ENTIRE session. I was there for 3 hours! I am so glad I was able to get some great shots regardless. In the 4 years I photographed the newborns at the hospital I learned how unpredictable they can be and how each one is different and will allow different poses. I work with what they do and allow.
How amazing are those blue eyes?
Sometimes we get stuck on wanted something in particular and being obsessed on getting “the shot”. I try for shots and if baby wants no parts of it, I move on and get what baby wants!
After doing Meagan’s maternity shoot we kept in constant contact about the delivery. I was informed of baby Jacqueline’s arrival and we started planning her shoot. Unfortunately Mommy had a terrible infection and had to be readmitted to the hospital. Once all that was cleared up we set our date. I went to Mom Mom’s house where she was staying to recover and get some great help with caring for herself and her baby in her condition. Her best friend, Beth, who purchased the gift certificate was there.
Capturing her was pretty easy as she just slept through most of it. I couldn’t believe how she posed for us. I am happy to share her here with all of you.
We had lots of plans for the little cutie. Here are some samples of what we did with her. Enjoy!
Meagan was a winner of a free session shoot. I met her at Pinnacle Point and she brought her Maw-Maw along. I met some of the nicest people I have ever met in my life that day. Meagan was so uncomfortable since it was late in her pregnancy and I felt so bad for her. She never complained and was up to try anything. She is such a photogenic, gorgeous young lady. We had a great time with the most amazing view! I love going here and this place was especially dear to me, as I also had my maternity pictures done there. Now I shared the special experience with Meagan!
Once we were done with the shoot and packing the stuff into my car, we realized that she already had a newborn session booked with me since her friend purchased the gift certificate as a gift for her baby shower. I loved that I would for sure get to work with her again and photograph the little angel. I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby Jacqueline!
Look for a blog about Baby Jackie’s session coming soon!
This is going to be the dish about what to expect during a newborn shoot with me. Let me start off by saying I really enjoy working with newborns. They might be my favorite subjects!! The best time to photograph a newborn before 10 days of age. They are easier to pose and tolerable of the positions everyone wants.
I will come to your home so you don’t have to travel out with your new one. It takes me about 15 minutes to set up. I will work with you and your baby to get all the poses you would like to have of your new bundle. From conversations we have, I will determine what type of theme and style you prefer and customize the props I bring in relationship to that. I have over 4 years experience working with newborns at a local hospital. I have been trained in baby safety and always provide that first.
It is also best to book your newborn session with me prior to baby’s birth. That way you have your spot with me. Then you can let me know when your bundle arrives and we can get you on the schedule within the week. I find this way of scheduling works best. I will provide all the necessary props and fun stuff to make your session special! Please feel free to email, text or call me with any questions.
Samantha found me on Facebook and I couldn’t be happier she chose me to capture such a special memory in her life. I traveled on a cold Sunday afternoon in January to meet her so we could have some snowy engagement photos. She brought her kids, Bear and Goose along! The dogs were adorable and so well behaved! The handmade signs she brought added the custom feel to her session. We trudged through the snow and trees to find the best spots to create the magic! I can not wait for their big day!
