Finally up is this beautiful little girl who I photographed at 18 days new. Baby S not only did you sleep so well for me but you had the most beautiful skin! Your sister adores you, as does your Mommy and Daddy! You did not sleep the night before, but that made you sleep your whole session! I hope you gave your mommy a break the rest of the day!
I hope when you get older and see these photos, that you love them as much as I do.
Did you know I offer Baby Milestone sessions? Milestone sessions are mini sessions for babies around the ages of 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months, perfect for capturing the new stages of your little one: rolling over, crawling, sitting, and walking. I love these sessions! Baby rolls, baby smiles, and so much personality what's not to love.
The other great thing about milestone baby sessions is I get to see my little clients again! Baby L came in for a 7/8 month session and to help her mom model some necklaces from The Vintage Honey Shop, if your little one is teething you must check them out! This little girl would not let them go.
As a mom I know it's more often than not that we are the ones behind the camera. So it is important to me at my newborn sessions to encourage the moms to be in front of the camera. After having a baby, from experience, I know it's the last thing a mother wants to do, you're not feeling like yourself. But trust me it will mean so much to you when you are able to look back at these photographs..
And because I like to practice what I preach I'm excited about my own family's session coming up this weekend!! For once I'll be in front of the camera!!
Typically the best time to photograph a newborn is in the first 14 days, they sleep more and they are easier to mold into a pose. However the little guy I photographed today proved me wrong!! At 4 weeks old he slept longer than some of the 2 week olds I've photographed. A handsome little boy for sure!!
