First Birthday Session | Wild One Cake Smash

Oh my heavens, welcome Baby K’s first birthday session to the blog! This sweet girl came into the studio last month to celebrate her first birthday. You may recognize her from the fruit bath session on the blog. This sweet girl was a trend setter for fruit baths, there have been so many requests for these sessions since!

Miss K took awhile to warm up. Not to worry, Megan saved the day as usual. She was smiling in no time, trying to get to her as fast as she could crawl.

Miss K’s momma requested florals and a tent for her ‘Wild One’ themed birthday and cake smash. Creating these customs sets for birthday sessions are a favorite thing of mine. You can watch me create her first birthday set here.

If you can’t tell, it took some coaxing to convince her to dig into the cake. Talk about a look! Ha! Not to worry, it was short lived and Miss K was going face first in no time. You know I love a good naked cake from A Cupcake A Day, and I think this sweet birthday girl agrees.

No first birthday session is complete without a dunk in the bath tub, right?

And no bath time is complete without splashing. This sweet girl loves a good bath and I couldn’t agree more!

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog! Love what you see? I would love to hear from you to chat about your little one’s first birthday session! All cake smash sessions include a cake, a set to match your little one’s first birthday theme and colors, and outfits for use.

While I am not currently scheduling sessions, we hope to be back in business soon. In the meantime, I am keeping a list of sessions to schedule when we get back to work. If you would like to be on that list, please contact me today!

Hope after Infertility

Welcome sweet Baby N’s newborn photography session to the blog! This sweet girl came into the studio for her newborn session right before everything shut down. I am so glad that we were able to squeeze her in because her momma and daddy have waited a very long time for their sweet miracle to arrive. And let me tell you, Miss N did not disappoint. Talk about bringing us some sunshine on dark days.

For Baby N’s newborn session, her momma request pink, white, and gold. She also brought some headbands, a few tutus, a jar of needles from the infertility treatments, and a watercolor painting of Baby N as an embryo. We are always happy to incorporate special items into your little one’s newborn session. I love how these items tell the story of Baby N and her family’s journey to welcome her into the world.

“Do not
lose hope,
please believe
that there are
a thousand 
beautiful things
waiting for you.

Sunshine 
comes to all
who feel rain.”
~R.M. Drake

So incredibly honored to document this miracle.

Momma also brought this pineapple blanket for to use for her newborn session. Pineapples represent infertility.

Baby toes never get old but I love how mom and dad wanted their rings on her toes. This is such a sweet touch of their love for each other and for her.

And then there were three. After a long struggle with infertility, congratulations to this sweet family on their beautiful baby girl. You are so loved Baby N.

Babies

Welcome little Miss Perky to the babies blog today! This sweet girl came to her newborn session to party! And there is nothing wrong with that. I know most parent’s sweat and stress over their little one’s cooperation. But here is the thing (and I would have never said this a few years ago, back in my less experienced days), we will always get some great photos no matter what. Awake or asleep. Babies are going to do what they do, and we will work with it.

Confession: I have never been much of a lover of the color purple. That is, until this gorgeous color came into my life. Now I want purple to be requested for every session. So since I am a converted ‘hater of purple’, I hope y’all are now too. Little Miss looks gorgeous in any color!

Oh why hello. We have eyes. Onward. And now we will keep babies as happy as possible. I’ve never had a parent not love an eyes open photo!

Here’s the great thing about babies. They have a very short awake window. After another snack, little Miss fell back asleep! And look at the adorable set ups we were able to capture. Stress not, mommas! We have got this!

That’s a wrap! How sweet is little Miss Perky? She totally made my day with cuddles and that adorable face. It really is an honor to capture these moments of new life for families. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Thank you so much for stopping by the babies blog! Love what you see and are interested in more? Feel free to check out the studio from the comfort of your home. To check on availability and scheduling, you can do so here.

*I have stopped using babies names for privacy. I still know, use, and love names. I hope that doesn’t offend anyone.

Baby Photo Session

Oh the gift of time. We have seemed to be short on time until just recently. Not to worry, I have a lot of baby photo sessions to catch up on here on the blog!

If there is anything that can bring a smile to your face today, it is this handsome man’s newborn photos. My goodness! Squish for days, y’all.

So here is an overshare of Mr. W’s newborn baby photo session. He has the sweetest little face and was so sleepy for his studio newborn session.

His momma choose green and blue for his backdrop colors. Classic boy colors if I do say so. Mr. W can pull off any color don’t you think?

All the different angles really show off those sweet newborn details. His baby rolls are delicious and just what the doctor ordered!

At one point during his newborn session, I said that I could ‘just gobble him up’. (Because, how could you not??!) His big sister piped up from the other side of the studio, “DON’T EAT MY BABY BROTHER!!!”. Oh my goodness, I about lost it. Y’all, if that isn’t the best big sister right there, I don’t know what is. Saving her baby from the photographer.

Baby toes are the best! It never fails to be a fan favorite from baby photo sessions!

Megan, my amazing assistant worked her magic on big sister. She really was quite hesitant that day to hop into the pictures. Just like Mary Poppins, Megan played games with her until she was dressed and thought it was her idea to sit with her baby brother. Nothing makes a momma happier than a photo of both of her babies together!

That’s a wrap for today! Thank you so much for stopping by the baby photography blog! Keep checking back, there will be much more goodness to come!

Expecting a little one soon? Please check out the portfolio and the online calendar for availability and scheduling.

A Pause.

Today, let’s take a pause.

I was going to blog a recent session today but it doesn’t feel right. The world is basically shutting down in order to fight COVID19. We are all aware of the world’s events and trying to find our way in uncharted territory for the modern age.

St. Patrick’s Day (which is today as I am writing this) is basically forgotten. We have much bigger things to think about this year.

A week ago, what is happening in the United States seemed impossible. But it is here and we need to embrace the coming weeks for what it is; a pause.

Currently, my business is on pause. We are taking it one day at a time like everyone else. I know that the future seems uncertain. But taking the time to pause can give us new life.

I found this quote by Kitty O’Meara:

“And the people staying home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows.

And the people began to think differently. And people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.”

Let’s all shine brighter as humanity comes together in this. Let’s start finding the joy in the simple things. Let’s take care of a neighbors and loved ones. Let’s hit reset and all come back better and stronger. More thoughtful and more loving.

Until then, I will be here filling the world with images of puppies and babies. Because that is how I know how to spread joy. Take care my friends. Stay home and stay well. ❤️

Pause
