I absolutely LOVE babies! It's a trait that I picked from my mom, a fantastically loving mother who adores babies and small children. She sees the beauty of God in every child's face, and her love of little ones has permeated our family culture -- all 9 of my siblings love babies and children and all of the grandchildren love them, too!
It is such a privilege to be preserve a newborn's first days and present those treasured first photos to parents. As a parent, I know that the days go by incredibly fast, and after they're gone, the only thing left are memories and photographs.
I was ecstatic to photograph this gorgeous newborn, the only little girl in a wonderful family who is blessed to grow up on a picturesque farm. With two older brothers and delightfully warm, giving, affectionate parents, this sweet girl is blessed to be is surrounded by love and joy.
My newborn sessions are baby-led and natural. I am captivated by the natural beauty of babies and keep the focus on the baby and family, not on props or poses. Because my work is based on the authenticity and heartfelt connection in families, I always include lifestyle photos that showcase the family's everyday life as well.
Keeping things natural and allowing the session to evolve organically allows me to capture the beautiful moments like these.
She woke up...
... And her natural expressions came through as she worked to understand the shapes and sights she was seeing.
Aren't newborn toes just the sweetest sight?
Because a newborn is part of a family, I always include photos of siblings and parents as well. Here, her big brothers were really excited to cuddle with her.
Next, we captured some moments with mom and baby...
... the special bond between parent and child during feedings is also so important to capture.
Here is a special moment between the baby and her loving Dad.
For natural newborn sessions, I visit families in the comfort of their home for the session. I bring a posing pillow for the baby's newborn portraits and simple blankets and wraps. Parents are welcome to come to my home studio, if that's more convenient. Here's a pull-back to see how the in-home setup looks.
