Bennett’s Newborn Session

Welcome Bennett’s newborn session to the photography blog! My goodness, this handsome little man made me wait quite awhile to meet him! Three weeks after his due date we were able to have his newborn session. He was totally worth the wait and did not disappoint! (Not to worry, newborn sessions are flexible! Sometimes little ones come in their own time and in dramatic fashion!)

Bennett rocked his poses on the beanbag, which are always my favorite! Sweet, clean, and timeless! Grey is always a great option for boys and the taupe color from Freebird Prop Shoppe looks amazing with his skin tone!

The studio has had such a string of little boys lately…I wonder where are the little girls are this summer? Maybe the fall will belong to the girls? Boy or girl does not matter to me, I am thankful for all the snuggles. Give me all the babies!

After a break for milk (which is completely normal during a newborn session), we moved onto props. Bennett was so happy swaddled and fell right back asleep again. It is so easy to do a few set ups quickly when they are swaddled. What an easy baby!

His momma loved this bonnet with the ears and I mean honestly, who doesn’t love a baby bear? I know I sure do!

We ended his newborn session with family photos. The last image of the silhouette is currently my most requested pose for family photos with newborns. So simple and sweet!

Carmen and Spencer’s Pregnancy Photoshoot

Oh my goodness, one of my all time favorite pregnancy photoshoot is on the blog today! I literally could share all of Carmen and Spencer’s images with you. I loved every single one! From the sweet and gorgeous couple, to the lighting and location, the stars aligned for this one!

This pregnancy photoshoot was at a new location. It did not disappoint! From the field of flowers to the sunset over the lake, I feel like I hit the location jackpot!

We started the maternity session on this quiet path in the tall grass and trees. The light was so soft and lovely here! I love how this soft pink dress compliments not only Carmen’s lovely skin tone, but the setting as well. So airy and timeless!

Then we turned to catch the sun peeking out behind the trees. Light is an amazing thing! Only a few feet from where we took the first photos and yet such a different look from the first. How sweet are these two? They are going to be amazing parents!

Anyone else a fan of weeping willow trees?? This spot had me swooning for a pregnancy photoshoot!

Carmen was able to try out some new dresses from the client wardrobe for her session. Everything fit her perfectly! Dresses provided are from Sew Trendy and Silk Fairies.

Pregnancy photoshoots are the perfect time to play dress up and celebrate this special time in your life. Did you know that maternity dresses are provided for your maternity session? It’s true! No need to stress out about clothing, I have you covered!

Soon they will be a family of three and I cannot wait to meet their little one!

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog to check out Carmen’s pregnancy photoshoot! Are you expecting and considering a maternity session to document your bump? Please check out the maternity portfolio to see if we would be a good fit!

Miss Nicolette’s Newborn Baby Photos

Oh my heavens! I can’t help but overshare Miss Nicolette’s newborn baby photos with the world today. This little angel came in for her newborn photos at just five days new and was an absolute dream boat!

Blush pink, creams, and simplicity were her momma’s request. Hello! Sign me up!

I thought this blog post might be a great example of what to expect out of a Welcome Baby newborn session with me, as I have included almost every photo from the newborn baby photos session here. So without further ado, here we go!

Most little ones arrive to their newborn session sleepy since it is requested that mom and/or dad keep them awake one to two hours before their session. This helps make sure they are ready for a deep sleep and not a catnap. I also recommend feeding their baby as much as they can right before they leave. It really makes a huge difference in their session!

So since baby is sleeping, I start with them first since their sleepy time is a window that we want to catch for posing. I do four poses on two different color fabrics with about 3 angles of each pose. These sets are simple and all about those fleeting details!

In most cases, I get these poses done in about thirty minutes. That’s a lot of newborn baby photos! Because I keep movements to a minimum, babies are typically pretty comfortable and happy here. Just how we like it!

After the beanbag, we move to props. Momma requested a bucket and maybe some florals (my favorite!!).

Her momma also brought this sweet little outfit that Nicolette’s auntie bought for her. How adorable is that back bow?

Okay, this heart prop from Rozzie Rayne Studio Props is seriously adorable.

Now onto family photos. I like to keep baby swaddled for these. It keeps them secure as there is usually a lot of movement! How gorgeous is her family??

Nicolette has some wicked adorable older brothers too. My goodness, they were so patient with her and so loving! I have a serious admiration for this family!

Last, but not least, parent poses!

That’s a wrap! What do you think? Easy peasy. This newborn baby photos session was done in an hour and a half! I try to get the best shot and move on so that we are not dragging out the session.

Ella Grace’s Newborn Photo Session

photo

Y’all, can you believe it? It is summer and I have officially blogged a photo session. See? I’m winning! HA!

Miss Ella Grace was welcomed into the studio last week for her newborn photo session. She had me swooning from the moment she arrived until she left. Seriously, the nicest and most adorable family of three! How lucky am I to call this my job??

Are you tired of the silhoutte family photo yet? I know I am not! This is always a favorite of mine for a newborn session. Those little tiny toes, fingers, and profiles just make my heart happy.

Ella’s momma requested this moon, I love how six years after my husband made it for me, it is still getting used and requested. Of course a summer baby needs some flowers! I think the flowers add just the right pop of color to the set. It is so sweet, simple, and timeless. All of my favorite things.

Bean bag poses are a must for every newborn session. Simple and all about the baby, my favorite kind of image! Pink and cream certainly look amazing on Miss Ella, right??

I got this new prop from Rozzi Rayne Studio Props just in time for Ella to try it out. I am a huge fan of baby girls in blue. I think she rocked it!

Dad is a huge Cleveland Browns fan, so this family photo was a must. Y’all know I am not a big theme person, but seriously you guys, they pulled this look off perfectly. I think Ella might be ready to watch the Browns actually WIN this fall. How can you loose when you have this adorable of a fan? Not possible.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog! If you are interested in a newborn photo session, please have a look around. Be sure to check out the newborn portfolio. If you are interested in booking, I am currently scheduling 2-3 months out.

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
