Children are such a blessing. If you have kids of your own, you’ve probably stopped at some point to ponder just how fast it all goes. There’s a popular poem written in 1958 by Ruth Hulburt Hamilton, a mother of five, that describes the bittersweet feeling all too well. In ‘Song for a Fifth Child’ she so eloquently writes about the pressures of keeping a clean and tidy house, and maintaining everything else on our checklist, all while our children grow right under our nose. It’s a sweet reminder to slow down and take in every precious moment.

Capturing Louis’ Budding Personality

I love when I get to watch my clients’ children grow. I’ve photographed Louis since he was a newborn, and he just celebrated his third birthday! When preparing for a children’s session, I like to get an idea of their interests. This not only keeps them occupied during the session, but it also ensures we capture not only what they look like, but who they are. Louis brought all his favorite books and trucks, along with his lamby that is very worn with love.

We took some photos of him in his first tuxedo, which he attended his first ballet in beside his mama. He also wore his bow tie that we’ve used to document his growth since his newborn session. I enjoy each and every session I create for this family, and I loved the amount of sentiment that went with this one. I know when Louis’s mom sees all the pictures of him in his sweet bow tie in the years to come, she’ll hear the words of Ruth Hulburt Hamilton ring true: “the cleaning and scrubbing will wait till tomorrow, for children grow up, as I’ve learned to my sorrow. So quiet down, cobwebs. Dust go to sleep. I’m rocking my baby and babies don’t keep”.

This was a session I won’t soon forget. It truly was a treat getting to work with Stephanie and Howard to commemorate the approaching arrival of their little one.  They were so excited to meet their first baby, and a girl none-the-less!  I had so much fun seeing the excitement escape their eyes as I captured their loving embraces and tender moments. To say their excitement was adorable is a stark understatement.  Stephanie was so bubbly, which worked great with my personality, and Howard was a true gentleman. Always the supportive husband to his precious wife.

Welcoming their Baby Girl

Since Stephanie’s favorite color is pink and they were expecting a little girl, we utilized a lot of the feminine pink tones throughout the session and balanced it with some springy yellows. A color combination which I LOVE! It’s just so perfect for this setting. Soft and feminine…reminding you of spring and endless new beginnings. The pure white is such a beautiful reflection of the love and innocence of a new life and the purity of the relationship that created it. 

For some, posing can be a challenge. If you feel uncomfortable in front of the lens, it will reflect in the collection. But not these two! They were absolute rockstars during their maternity session. Constantly laughing and being entirely too precious (as if that’s a thing) as I posed them together. Howard was always sure to reassure Stephanie by saying “I’ve got you”.  I had to stop for a second to dwell on the depth of meaning hidden in that simple statement, “I’ve got you”. But that is another story for another post. Needless to say, I adored this couple <3

I’m so excited to share this newborn session with you. Working with Jospehine and her sweet parents was so much fun! So often, I am reminded how much of a blessing this career path of mine is. Not only do I have the unique opportunity of meeting such wonderful people as Jospehine’s parents, but I get to provide for them a documentation of the happiest moments in their lives. Collections such as this are so much more than just documenting her tiny features and delicate details. It’s a reminder of the sweet baby-smell of her precious head. Of the way she curls her toes when she sleeps. The tiny crinkle on her nose as she yawns. Newborn photography is about remembering each precious memory and moment from this fleeting time in both baby and parent’s lives.

A Rose by Any Other Name

Josephine was my first newborn session of the year, and I was so excited to get to work as soon as she showed up to the studio. Being the rock star baby she is, she slept soundly throughout the entire session. As we transitioned from pose to pose, she didn’t open her eyes until after that great, big yawn. Perfect, right!? Seeing as her middle name is Rose, her mom brought along with her the delicate rose swaddling blanket you see below. This sentimental piece is also used in her nursery, so I can only imagine how wonderful it will be in the future as her parents look back on this collection and that blanket, thinking of the days when their little girl could very nearly fit in the palms of their hands.

What an absolute honor it was getting to photograph these precious memories for this sweet family. I hope this collection of images will forever be cherished memento of theirs to remember and look back on this special time in their lives when their family finally became whole.

My sweet Analyse! It can be such a challenge as a photographer to photograph your own children. It’s a breeze handling a session with anyone else’s kids, but the second I work with my own all rules go out the window. I always make it a point each year on my girl’s birthdays to have a fun session planned for them. This is the perfect way for me to document their growth and their personalities from year to year, while creating awesome memories.

My Sweet Analyse

Analyse turned 5 this year, geeze where has the time gone..  I can’t believe how fast she is growing right before my eyes. She is wild, sweet, loud, and sometimes a bit of a grump, but we wouldn’t change a thing. I knew that some colorful graffiti walls would be the perfect setting to compliment her wild heart and free spirited personality.

My crazy girl is always running around meowing like a cat, so I knew that the kitty ears were a must have! I always try to incorporate unique props like this each year to represent whatever they are into in that phase of their lives. My kids always have so much fun during these sessions, and I’m so thankful to have these pictures to hold on to as they grow up. Needless to say, they will always hold a special place in my heart.

Sweet little blessing! I love having the opportunity to take newborn pictures. t’s always a heartwarming experience that reminds me how much I love my job! This time in a mom’s life is so incredibly fleeting. You blink your eyes and your little tiny bundle has suddenly shot up into a fiesty little toddler. It’s exactly for this reason that newborn photography is such a vital part of this time in any parent’s life. When it came to this mama, I wanted to make sure that I captured every detail of her sweet girl, so she could look back on it for many years to come! I mean come on, you just can’t help but to smile when you look at these pictures. So full of fresh-baby cuteness!

About this Session

Mom wanted her sweet baby girl to be snuggled up in soft purples and greys with a touch of florals. LOVE this combination! It was something different from the typical pink so my interest was definitely peaked when we were planning out the session! You never know what mood the little one will be in on the day of the session, but this sweetheart slept the entire time! I am so in love with her sweet smile and perfect little dimples. I can only imagine how precious these images will be to her parent’s for years and years to come!

It was an honor to be able to play a role in this exciting time in this family’s life, and I look forward to seeing her again soon at her fun milestone sitting-up session!
