I got to meet this handsome little guy when he came into the studio at 19 days old for his newborn portrait session. He was pretty set on staying awake and not missing anything, but once he fell asleep, we got so many adorable photos! He was over 10 pounds at his newborn session and I just love his cute little squishy back rolls!

Meet baby Jasper — isn’t he adorable?

Jasper’s dad is a musician and brought his guitar into the studio to use for the newborn photos. I just love how small Jasper looks all curled up on the guitar.

This sweet girl is so lucky to have two big sisters who absolutely adore her. They were all three so good for her newborn session at the studio, and I just love the way these turned out! You might recognize this sweet family from their recent maternity session. I met them right before their oldest child was born and now they have three beautiful little girls!

I have to start with this one, because it’s one of the best newborn smiles I’ve ever seen. Look at this happy girl! If this doesn’t make you smile, I don’t know what will.

I don’t use a lot of dark green with baby girls, but I LOVE the way this setup turned out. She looks beautiful on the green and I just love the flower crown. I have a few different flower crowns and they are just so sweet on baby girls.

This one is more serious than the smiling one I started with, but she looks so sweet with those big eyes that I had to include it, too.

Melissa and David, thank you so much for letting me photograph your sweet baby girls!

When I photographed this veteran and his family for their maternity and newborn session last fall, they brought an American flag scarf to use in their photos. There were so many other images I loved from their session that I never got around to sharing these. What better time than the 4th of July weekend?

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope everyone has a wonderful long weekend with lots of friends, family, and fireworks!

This little guy surprised his family by arriving 6 weeks early! I had a maternity session with his mama scheduled for 34 weeks, and she went into labor the day before the session, and he was born 2 hours before our scheduled session! It’s too bad we didn’t get to take maternity photos, but we decided to schedule a 6 month session for him instead, and I’m looking forward to seeing him again in a few months!

Aydan was 12 days old when I photographed his newborn portraits at the studio, and he wasn’t even technically due for another 4 weeks. I’ve photographed many premature and early babies, and most of them sleep like a rock. This little guy did, too, eventually, but when he was awake, he was super alert and strong, already holding his head up and looking around. He definitely didn’t want to miss a thing!

Aydan’s mom picked navy and neutrals for the color scheme for the session. I think navy is definitely his color!

This blanket was Aydan’s dad’s when he was a baby. I love incorporating sentimental items like this into newborn portraits!

Aren’t they a beautiful family? I can’t wait to see you guys again in a few months! Thank you so much for letting me photograph your little guy!

I met this sweet family when they were expecting their first daughter, and I am so thrilled for them that they are now expecting their third sweet baby girl! Kennedy and Reese are so excited to meet their new sister!

I am so happy I had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful family!

Can you tell these girls are excited about the new baby?

Isn’t Melissa glowing? It’s not fair to look this gorgeous when you are pregnant!

I love these sweet images of the mama and daddy to be. You know how it is when you have kids — they are in all your photos and it’s rare to get a shot of just mama and daddy. Melissa and David are so in love though and so sweet together, and we had to get a few of just them!

Walking back to the car at the very end of the session, Kennedy and Reese stopped for some sister hugs and kisses. They are just so sweet and I know they will be the best big sisters to the new baby!
