(Had to share this cute little one of little AVA with her mom’s own personal doll from childhood. Adorable yes!? And yes you can see – I’m a bit behind in blogging and plus with the fall season here I don’t want to spoil many Holiday card photos… so the blog might be a slight bit quite for a while)
(The first of a few blog posts this wknd. Oh and let me apologize for the delay in those families waiting on a post. As much as I try to share something from each session – sometimes it’s not possible in this busy season. Promise I’ll try so keep an eye out! )
Remember these 3? Well, I was so glad that this newborn session worked out the way it did. I got a call from this little guy’s mom on a Wednesday and as luck would have it my morning on that next day was free. At 8 days old – he was just simply perfect and I couldn’t have asked for a better little guy to work with. Somehow we managed to have him sleep and SMILE the entire way through the shoot – and we even escaped any potty messes. Luck was certainly on our side 🙂 I have so many more I could share from this session but I had to force myself to stop b/c I’m already starting to get backed up with Fall 2011 work. EEK. But for now here’s a few… (Side note – their sweet little dog was a bit jealous he wasn’t getting a session and he literally jumped up for 1 shot. Priceless)
A few things I loved about this session…1) The light in his nursery – so beautiful 2) how super sleepy, sweet and smiley he was… (8 days old – PERFECTION!) 3) the overwhelming love that his new mommy and daddy have for him 4) the family cuddle shots… LOVE! 5) the fact that the dog was watching ever move I made 🙂
I know my ‘Wordless Wednesdays’ are supposed to be… well… Wordless – But I just had to share this ‘outtake’ from this recent newborn session. Mom’s hands are to the bottom left and her mom’s hand is resting on little Lyla’s chest. Both were keeping her calm and rested before our next shot – I looked and loved what it represented. Hope you do too.
I forget how enjoyable Newborn Sessions can be and this one certainly was. Here is little Lyla at just 9 days old… what a perfect bundle of sweetness she was. You might remember her mom, dad and pup Wrigley from this gorgeous maternity session. I loved how she stretched her little arms and legs, made the cutest little sounds and allowed me to photograph her for as long as I did. These are just a few from my time with her – but they are certainly ones that caught my eye the most. Typically I’m not a fan of dressed up newborns for a shoot – I like it super simple – but when I saw this little bunny outfit that mom purchased on Etsy – I thought – of course we have to use that! It 100% worked on Lyla and I’m thrilled we used it. The crib shot I adore because her nursery is so warm, cozy and girly. What I love even more about that crib shot is who was laying right at my feet while photographing Lyla…her Goldendoodle Wrigley. This dog is THE BEST! He was protecting little Lyla from the womb to now and I know they will be fast friends! Lastly, I love the last photograph of just her in all white on her mom & dad’s bed. Wrapped in window light she just snoozed away. Thanks so much “J” family for allowing me to capture this moment in your life and in Lyla’s. I can’t wait to watch her grow!
If you’re expecting your little one – please contact me as early as possible for a newborn shoot. I enjoy photographing them in their first few days of life and I’m not opposed to meeting you on your way home from the hospital 🙂 The ideal time for photographing a newborn is in the first 12 days of their life – so contact me as soon as you can so we can start planning your session.
