I just loved this family’s maternity photos, but I think their newborn photos may have topped them! Baby Alice is the perfect addition to the family and I loved getting to capture these special moments! Alice came into the studio at 13 days old and she slept like a dream. I got about 2 minutes of awake shots at the beginning and then she fell asleep and slept for 2 hours straight, letting us do all kinds of poses and setups.

Don’t they have a beautiful family?

This session had to be rescheduled again, and again, and again. First it rained, and then it rained again. Then Jennifer got really sick. Then it rained again. Finally we were able to photograph this session, and I’m so glad everything finally came together, because I love the way it turned out. Jennifer met me at a local park with to take nursing portraits of her and her 6 month old baby boy, Elliott. He was super cute, and super serious, but we finally got some great smiles from him after he warmed up a bit.

We originally had planned this session as a mama and me/nursing session, but since dad was there, too, I convinced him to jump in for a couple photos at the end of the session.

Aren’t they a sweet family? Jennifer, thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your session!

I am so in love with the photos from this nursing session! Amanda and Bea have the sweetest bond and it just shines through in these images. After seeing images I photographed for a friend, Amanda contacted me to schedule a breastfeeding session just before Bea’s first birthday. Nursing for one year is a huge milestone to celebrate and she wanted to have photos taken to celebrate the occasion. I’m so happy she did; it was so great to meet both of them and I love the way the images turned out!

I always start breastfeeding sessions by taking a few images of the mama and baby together. It gives me a chance to get to know them a little and let them warm up before jumping right into nursing.

Once we started with the nursing photos, we were able to get quite a variety in just a few minutes. I love the way these turned out!

Because Bea was turning one just a few days after the session, I asked Amanda if she wanted to do a quick setup to get a birthday photo of Bea. Isn’t she adorable?

Amanda, thank you so much for coming in and letting me photograph you two! I loved meeting you and hope to see you guys again in the future!

This beautiful baby girl came into the studio at two weeks old for her first portrait session. Her newborn photos turned out so sweet, and I am so happy her mom chose me to photograph her session.

Doesn’t she look beautiful in pink?

Her mama brought in the tutu set she received as a baby shower gift, and it turned out super cute. Azalea looks like a tiny little ballerina.
