Newborn Session

Charlotte's Newborn Photos

Three GORGEOUS girls. Can you believe it? How blessed is this family? They truly are filled with love and have such an amazing dynamic. I have looooved watching these girls grow up and seeing their beauty radiate.

Charlotte was actually a premie. She was born at 34 weeks and was just a teeny little thing. We ended up waiting a few weeks for her session, actually we had it on her actual birthday! How awesome is that!

And she felt and acted like any other newborn. She was perfect and so round and adorable. I loved squishing and loving on her for the morning. It filled my day with so much joy.

I then met with her family 2 weeks later to go through her collection of photos. We designed her custom album and chose art for their walls!

It was incredible and so fulfilling to fill their lives with long-lasting memories for them to re-experience over and over again.

I made a quick video of their gorgeous photos!

I love creating these beautiful little movies for my clients! I imagine them using them at their one year birthday party, at their graduation party, or just watching them to see how they have changed. This is what I imagine for their gorgeous albums as well. Long-lasting treasures for you family!

What a gorgeous family!! I am so excited to see how she grows.

Meet little Francis, or Frankie. She was so incredibly adorable during her lifestyle newborn session. I loved photographing their little family in their gorgeous historical home. Their entire session

Benjamin's adorable newborn session

I was really, really honored to be apart of this newborn session. This adorable couple was actually good friends with one of my best friends here in town. So I knew about them through the grapevine and heard their whole pregnancy adventures (which were a lot!). These two had a few interesting moments leading up to baby Ben. So when I finally met these three beautiful people, I felt like I already knew them! I wanted to hang out with them alllll day long (well, we kinda did hang out all day...but it didn't feel like it)! They were just enamored with Benjamin, his head full of hair, and his perfect chunky rolls. It is the sweetest thing to see a couple transform into incredible parents. They are just so dang happy - despite their major lack of sleep!

And my other favorite memory from these guys was how they tried really, really hard to keep him awake for the session, especially since they drove here from Indy. And you know how little babies love their carseats. Instant dream mode! Well they truly succeeded and everyone was perfect for the session. I loved spending the day with them, hearing their stories, providing support, and cuddling their little one. They are a blessed family, that's for sure!

Having a studio has completely changed how I shoot newborn portraits - in a good way! Now I can actively involve all the family members, turn on some soothing music, and let mom and dad relax while I photograph their precious newborn. It also becomes a time that the whole family can remember and enjoy. That is why this session was so fun! The whole family was there and his siblings love him so much. If he was crying they would come over and check on him to make sure he's okay. If he was stinky, they would stay as far away as possible :)

And my absolute favorites shots were when they were cuddling up with their new baby brother. These pictures are priceless and I am so happy the family was able to come in and be involved in the session!

One thing to remember when involving the family with newborn sessions is to be prepared for a little longer newborn portrait session. Normally the sessions last 2-3 hours due to stopping points, feeding, changing the diaper and all of that jazz! But with a family involved, it may take up to 4 hours. But it is worth it!
