Isn’t she beautiful? And yes, the baby is precious, too! This sweet baby belongs to a classmate and I was so excited to have the opportunity to take her first photographs. She’s almost two months old now, but I still wanted to get these shared! She wasn’t my biggest fan, but once she fell asleep, she was out! Thank you again Matt & Harriet for allowing me into your home for sweet snuggles (and pictures) and for patiently waiting for this gallery!
I’ve been so excited to blog some of these images!! Almost two months later, I’m finally getting around to it. To say that life has been busy around our house is an understatement!! This was my first official birth to photograph and it was absolutely AMAZING!! The nurse in me was excited and wanted to do everything. The photographer in me was a big bundle of nerves! The light was dim. It would happen fast. Would I capture everything. Would I miss my focus?! Must. Concentrate. Now. Sarah. In the end, it was fabulous! AAANNNDD I got to learn the sweet baby’s name before everyone else! His parents had been keeping it a secret! He ended up having a pretty nifty birthday too – 8/9/10 – Cool huh?!?! Thanks again Mom and Dad for letting me join the party – it was great!
This sweet little girl was an absolute DOLL for her session. Once she settled into a deep sleep, she was out. Big brother was busy watching Lion King, and she didn’t even care!! She *almost* makes me want another sweet little girl… her lips just melted me. I’ll be honest here, there are sometimes that photographing a newborn makes my ovaries ache. I love the smell of a newborn, their sweaky little squaks and ohhh, their soft skin just makes me want to kiss them all over. There is something so sweet about them – truly one of life’s miracles! And the BEST part, I get to capture that goey sweetness on film for their family to remember for years to come. They don’t stay small and sleepy long – so each of these images will hold this sweet memory for a lifetime. What an honor!! So, thank you so much Y family for allowing me into your home during this new season – it was an honor!!
Look at this precious little girl…. See how she’s curled up and in a deep sleep? That’s the beauty of photographing a newborn early in their life. This is how she grew in her mom for 9 months, so this pose is perfectly comfortable for her. I recommend scheduling a session under 10 days of age to capture sweet looks like this…
This little guy was super TINY and almost made me want another! You just forget how small they are! If I could find a way to stop time and keep newborns newborns, I’d be a millionaire! Mr. Logan was a trooper this morning! He smiled in the very first picture I took! What a good boy! Thank you guys so much for allowing me to photograph your precious son! I look forward to watching him grow up – he already has a head-start on being handsome! Enjoy your sneak peak and I’ll talk to you soon!
