This family has been a part of my career as a photographer for many years! Austin was actually an amazing babysitter for us while she was going through nursing school, and now she's all grown up and has gotten married and just had a baby of her own! I was honored to be able to capture their engagement session, wedding, maternity, birth, and newborn session which included Hudson! It's amazing how much a baby can change in a week, but he was the perfect model for his studio session. You will see more of him soon because we are also doing a lifestyle session at his home in a few weeks!
This sweet family recently came to me for a newborn session and brought their pup and grandma who was visiting to help post baby! So it truly included the whole family and I loved it! :) In my studio I have everything needed for a session, but sometimes clients want to incorporate a few things that are special to them and that is great too! So we included baby girl's sweet rose blanket and one piece outfit. (Outfits can be really tough at this age so if you want to search for something special, go to etsy and type in newborn photography outfit for the best choices.. otherwise, baby may be swimming in it!)
Here are a few of my favorites from the session..
I have been shooting this family for years, and now, they've added their third baby, a sweet boy, to the mix! So far for this baby we have covered a maternity session, a newborn session, and a 6-month one. The only thing we have left in the baby plan is the 1 year that includes a cake smash (I provide the cake and decor!) I love the baby plans because babies change so much in that first year and it's a privilege to see them grow up! From curling up (we took River's newborn portraits in the best spot... down by the RIVER ;) at the newborn session to smiling at the 6 months, it's a great way to capture your whole family for a year. Here are a few of my favorite images from our sessions:
If you have a coworker who has recently had an older child, what would be the perfect gift for them? A newborn mini session of course! That is just what was gifted to this adorable family. And in our mini session we did baby alone, with big brother, AND family shots! Mini sessions have less setups than full sessions and the styling isn't as big, but there is no shortage of super cute pictures. We just tend to make minimal changes to the baby and surroundings so we can get through a maximum amount of portraits in our shorter time frame.
Big brother was sooo cute with her and I may or may not have had to dig in to my mini chocolate chip stash that I keep in the fridge (for an occasional treat for myself annnnnd to occasionally bribe the kids ;) to coerce him into cuddling with sister. Perks of a home studio, my home can open up and find goodies and endless supplies to help your family with any need!
