Stefan | One month

So Mr. Stefan came into the studio for his one month portrait session. He came in a very dapper little outfit with matching shoes and looking very handsome. We put him on the beanbag ready to take some nice wakeful images, when......he promptly fell asleep! No matter what I did I could not get him to wake up. Completely opposite of what I am used to, where I am always trying to lull babies into a nice deep sleep. Well, I thought if you can't beat em, join em! We striped him down and I got out my hats and started posing. I cannot believe this little guy, out cold and able to pull this session off in just over an hour. Never has this happened before!!
You can come back anytime Stefan:)

Mya Justice | 27 days new

Well beautiful Miss Mya Justice was definitely one of my oldest "newborns" I typically consider a newborn to be around 10 days, however Mya needed a little more time to put some of her birth weight back on and get all pretty for her shoot. This can happen when dealing with newborns and I knew how badly mommy wanted these images. Mya came in and was a little harder to settle and was still working on putting her birth weight back on because all she wanted to do was EAT!! She was so perfect once we got her into a nice deep sleep and photographed beautifully. I am so glad we were still able to acheive these gorgeous sleepy images for mom and dad.
It can be done ~ with an enormous amount of patience:) Which I have been told time and time again, is something I have plenty of. (Not so sure if my kids agree with that...)

Oakley | 10 days new

Welcome the complete adorableness (is that a word?)  of Oakley to the blog! After having a run of super easy babies, I knew there was bound to be one soon who would put up a fight:) And oh boy, it was this youngest of three. He was not going to go down easy, he really put mom and I to the test. All the feeding and cuddling and rocking....nope he was still happy to just stare at us eyes wide open and not happy to be put down for his photos. So we had to call in the big guns....aka......DAD!!! He worked his magic and got Oakley into a deep, deep slumber and we were set to go for as long as we wanted. We got some amazing shots for this family to cherish.
This was one of the very first families I photographed in 2010 and it was just so great to have them come back with the arrival of newest addition. LOVE that!










 Oakley was happy to model my heart Valentine Hat and was my Valentines Day pic on FB....so cute!

Andrew | 11 days new.

I have been so lucky with my babies! Andrew was another sweet, laid back, easy to work with little guy! He was just so darn cute and had so many smiles. I first met his mommy & daddy for their expecting session and was so looking forward to meeting the baby behind the bump. He really wore the little prince crown so perfectly!
It's was so great meeting you all ~ enjoy your sweet new little bundle:)

Megan | 7 days new

Teensy-Tiny Megan. She was such a little doll and happy to snooze the session away! She didn't mind at all the many different hats, headbands and poses. Megan was kept under the watchful eye of her big sister Sam, who was the most perfect little model for some sisterly love shots:) I love this family and have had so many wonderful opportunities to work with them. I was so happy when Lisa had contacted me for the Bump n' Baby package you can see the expecting session here!

Mackie | 10 days new

Absolutely sweet and lovely Mackie. Such a calm and peaceful little guy. I could not have asked for an easier newborn to work with. He will be in such good hands with his big sister who really couldn't hug and kiss him enough! What a wonderful family I am so lucky to do what I do ~ meeting all these new little lives that come into our world and see the love they have surrounding them. Puts a happy, happy smile on my face:)
 Check out Marcy & Michaels expecting session here!
