Miss Harper

Welcome Miss Harper’s newborn photo session to the blog!

So in my attempt to keep up with the blog, summer has hit our house. That means the kiddos are off of school and a lot more time outside. I am not complaining! It just makes keeping up here on the blog a little trickier. Not to worry friends, there are plenty of sessions to share. Outdoor photo sessions are in full swing too! If you are interested in catching a family session for this summer or fall, stop by here.

Maybe on a rainy day I will catch up on all the latest sessions but in the meantime, here is Miss Harper’s newborn photo session!

Oh this sweet little lady looks identical to her big brother as a newborn! I LOVE watching their family grow over the years. It all started with a maternity session two years ago for big brother. ❤️

Little Miss Harper was super hungry during her session. We took plenty of snack breaks to keep her satisfied. My goodness, I cannot wait to see her rolls at her sitter session. Girlfriend knows how to eat!

All the neutrals with a pop of soft color in Harper’s newborn photo session make my heart swoon. Light, airy, sweet, and timeless. Give. Me. All. The. Babies!

The heart bowl might be my new favorite prop of all time. It works well for boys and girls alike, even under fabric. Harper loved being swaddled, as most newborns do, so it was an all around win for everyone!

How sweet is big brother Brady? Like most toddlers, he is an active little guy, but he did so good for his sister’s newborn photo session. He is quite smitten with her too. I love seeing how siblings respond to having a new baby in the house. Most of the time, they are over the moon!

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog! Are you expecting a new addition soon? I would love to do your photo session! Please check out the newborn portfolio and maternity portfolio to see if we might be a good match.

Until next time,

Mary

Welcome Miss Colette to the newborn blog!

It has been a little quiet here on the newborn blog lately. May ended up being a super busy month full of new babies, my favorite! I have been so busy shooting newborn sessions that the blog has fallen quiet. My apologies! The good news is that there are a ton of new sessions to share! So many sweet faces have come into the studio in the last few weeks. So, without further ado, please welcome Miss Colette to the newborn blog!

My goodness, those cheeks! And rolls in all the right places! Such a sweet baby with the nicest parents! I’m always so honored when parents choose me to capture their little one’s first moments. So many families drive 30 minutes to over an hour to share their baby with me. What a privilege it is to spend my days with them!

Colette’s momma shares the same love for babies in buckets as me. So a baby in a bucket was a must for her newborn session, right? And of course spring babies need some flowers to go with that bucket. This type of set is becoming my speciality! I love all the buckets from Rozzi Rayne Studio Props, they are my go to prop!

Pink is almost always a request for girls but her momma requested green as well. Love the change up! Add a bow and some texture and you have one lovely newborn image.

I love pastel colors for babies! Soft and sweet just like the little ones!

Thank you so much for stopping by the newborn blog, I hope you like what you see! If you are expecting a little one and are considering newborn photography, please check out the newborn portfolio. I would love the opportunity to be your newborn photographer!

Emerson’s Newborn Photography Session

Oh Miss Emerson!  Welcome to earth side and the blog, sweet girl!  I know I say this every blog post, but she was so good to me!  Not a peep or a mess out of this sweet baby for her newborn photography session.  And to add that she has the best head of hair with the sweetest face, well that is just the icing on the cake!

Emerson’s big sister came to the newborn photography session.  Toddlers can always be a bit of a wild card since you never really know how they will react in new situations, especially with a new baby in the scene.  Her momma warned me that big sister is not a fan of having her photo taken and that it would probably be a struggle.  Little miss was very shy upon arrival but eventually warmed up.  We even got a few smiles!  How sweet is this sibling duo?  Melts my momma heart!

Most parents of toddlers are hesitant to include the older siblings in the newborn photography session.  Understandable.  However, it is such an amazing photo when you can get the siblings together!  And honestly, what momma doesn’t love a photo of all of her babies together?  I know I am raising my hand!

A few things to remember if you are bringing a toddler to a newborn session (or any photo session for that manner).

First, do not bribe them!  As tempting as it may be, toddlers are instant gratification people.  So when you tell them to sit and smile for a cookie, all they hear is cookie.  A battle is certain to ensue.

Second, tell them what to expect and keep it positive!  Let them know your photographer’s name, where you are going, and what will be happening.  Show them photos on the wall and where you want to hang their photo.

Third, keep it positive!  Toddlers tend to be active with a short attention span, getting frustrated with them will always back fire.  Have low expectations and remember, it only takes a split second to capture a great photo!

Now back to babies!

I’m slightly obsessed with these gorgeous knit sets from Beautiful Ewe.  How sweet and simple are these images?

Olivia’s Newborn Photos

Welcome Miss Olivia’s newborn photo to the blog!  Oh this sweet little love, she stole my heart in a big way!  Not a peep out of her during her newborn session- not to mention the feeling of our bliss from her parents that day.  This session really reminded me why I have the best job ever. Not only do I get to snuggle fresh babies and meet awesome families, but I get to relive that new little love feeling.  <3

If you follow this blog or maybe one of my social media accounts, you know how much I love a good baby in a bucket set.  And you know how much I love florals.  It’s not a newborn photo until you have both in my opinion!  So in love with the soft colors, textures, and Olivia’s sweet little face!

What can I say, this girlie was as good as gold!  And talk about rolls in all the right places!! Swoon!  Newborn sessions are all about those tiny details and back and arm rolls are definitely ones you don’t want to miss!

Family portraits are always so special during a newborn session and this is no exception.  Hands down, my all time favorite is this circle of love silhouette.  It gives me all the feels.

A spring baby always needs a few flowers.  Am I right??

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog to check out Olivia’s newborn session.  Are you expecting soon and are considering newborn photography?  Please check out similar posts to see if we would be a good fit.  If so, I would love to chat with you!

Newborn sessions are scheduled by due dates since babies come on their own timeframe.  In order to get sleepy poses seen here, between 6 and 14 days is ideal.  A limited number of newborn sessions are accepted every month.

Hello, Ian!

Welcome Mr. Ian’s infant photos to the blog!  My goodness, what an absolutely sweet little baby he is!  His momma and daddy are about the nicest people you can meet, I was so thrilled to be a part of this special time in their lives!

Ian’s momma is an elephant handler at the Cleveland Zoo.  Is this not the coolest job you have ever heard of?? So of course we HAD to do an elephant set.  I hope this will fit perfectly into his elephant themed nursery!

As fun as the colorful themed sets are, my heart really stays with the neutrals.  How neat is this new prop from Libelle Props?  Mr. Ian was so patient with me!

The variety that we can get on the beanbag is hands down second to none.  The simplicity of infant photos and all those details really shine here.  My goodness, he was so delicious!  Those cheeks and rolls are divine!

Ian’s daddy was a big fan of this sleepy cap!  How adorable is he?  I do see a bit of red hair coming in, maybe he will be a redhead….my favorite!

Oh that sweet profile!  Friends, it’s all about those details for infant photos!  They are only this little for a blink of an eye.

You know how much I love a good bucket, right?  No exception here! Loved all the angles from this set as well.

Oh those sweet little piggies!  Baby toes are simply the best!

Family silhouettes are a new must for me.  I do them every session.  It gives a bit of variety and a different look.

Okay, okay, love this family!  Have I said that yet?  And for as sweet as they are, they are equally gorgeous!
