This little lady was 10 days old when I had the opportunity to photograph her. She was a lovely sleepy baby who had adorable hair. She loved to be warm and wrapped and had a big brother that was eager to give her snuggles.
I hope that the juggling between two children comes quick and easy and that you all have a wonderful Christmas. Thank you for allowing me to photograph you during this special time.
On Saturday I got to see R. again. A little after a week after his birth and I am so grateful that he was such an adorable sleepy baby boy. He loved being wrapped and curled up and snuggled. His big sister was very interested in all that was going on and obviously adored him. The days ahead may be long but they will be filled with love.
This beautiful family contacted me in July about doing their newborn session. Unfortunately I was already booked so I was unable to do the shoot at the time. However, we did work it out so that we planned a lifestyle and outside shoot when the baby was 7 weeks old. I love these images. The weather was actually decent for once and the outfits that they picked out were perfect for what I was wanting to achieve - which was pictures that were clean and pure. I am so thankful for sunny days and for customers who are willing to work with me and hopefully these images will bring back good memories in the future.
As a mother of two small children sometimes doing newborn sessions is difficult. I do not want to risk the health of the newborn and I also need to be there for my children when they are sick. Because of this I unfortunately had to postpone this newborn session from happening at week three to week eight. So we went ahead an planned a lifestyle type session. I enjoyed this session because the home had so much life and character to it. This mom has obviously put much thought and time into decorating and making this house a home, which was nice to see since in this type of community making these houses into "ours" is sometimes a daunting task. This couple had so much love for their little girl, I loved watching them interact and to dote on her.
Congratulations on the birth of your girl and I am sure that your next station will be amazing and I wish you all the best in the days and months ahead. And once again thank you for your patience with me.
This little beauty and her head full of hair were supposed to be photographed a week earlier, but we postponed due to some health issues. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to do her shoot, and even though she was a awake a bit for the beginning and didn't want to sleep in the end I was able to get some lovely shots of this snuggled up little girl.
I hope things smooth out for this little family and I wish you all the best and that you soon can get into a routine that works well.
As soon as I wrapped this little man he starting smiling - and not just a little smile, but a big toothless sleepy grin. Later on in the shoot he actually let out a little noise while he was smiling that sounded just like a giggle. Seriously - 6 days and giggling, melt my heart. This little one made his Mama go through hours and hours of labor but I know that as he grows she will know it was worth it.
Thank you for allowing me to snuggle and capture your little man. And I hope that you all get some rest and are able to enjoy having extra hands around to help.
This little beauty was super calm during most of the session, and decided that being awake and looking around quite a bit would be a fun thing to do. She did finally decide to actually settle down and sleep, which allowed me to get some nice shots. During the family part of the session she was content in the loving arms of her Mom and Dad.
Once again thank you for allowing me into your home to capture A. during these first days. I hope that she continues to be a calm baby for you and I wish you my best.
This little girl was born weighing less than 6 pounds but has the spunk to make up for her size. She fought me a bit on the whole staying asleep part, but in the end I am thankful to say I won and we were able to get some lovely wrapped shots. Her parents were attentive to her every cry and she had already had her daddy wrapped around her little finger.
The very best to you both and I hope that you enjoy many hours of snuggles and get some real rest soon.
This adorable little man made his parents wait until 10 days after his due date before he decided to enter the world. He slept most of the first part of the session but when it came to family and parents shots he decided he wanted to be awake. He was so solemn during the pictures with his daddy and his uniforms, it was adorable.
Thank you for the opportunity to photograph your little one and I hope that the days ahead are good ones and that you have much joy as you care for your son.
Mister W. a 10 days was a dream baby. He slept pretty much the whole time and allowed me to pick him up and put him down while only giving me a few grunts in between. I know that his Mama was hoping for some open eye shots but those will have to come some other time because he decided that sleeping was more important, which was brought on by partying all night.
It was lovely working with you all again and I enjoyed meeting baby W. Best wishes on the days ahead and hang in there.
Melinda loves photography and hopes this love comes out through her work.
