It’s not all that often that I go on location for a newborn session these days as most clients prefer to come to me and make use of my studio with its wide variety of props and setups. But when I do, it’s always an exciting and unique experience – and the resulting images reflect that. Love that. This particular session brought in grandparents, the outdoors, and a bit of cozy lifestyle feel mixed in with traditional newborn posing that really made this session unique and special.
Oh it’s been awhile and so much has happened! An intensely busy Summer 2011 season, an even busier Fall 2011 season, some ups and downs, a pregnancy, and then… the birth of my third, a little girl! And here we are and it’s almost the Summer season again! In that time I had the privilege of photographing so many gorgeous families, so many unique and precious newborns, and lots of gorgeous moms-to-be. If you were following me on Facebook, you caught glimpses of my work as the months went on, but I have so, so many amazing sessions that I want to share. So many images that deserve to be seen bigger, and so many beautiful clients that deserve a little spotlight!
So, now that I am back from maternity leave, I plan to really catch up around here. I will be showing my work from the Summer 2011 and Fall 2011 season here on the blog, updating my website and blog with fresh work, and my Facebook page will still show my most recent sneak peeks as they happen. So stop by the blog every once in awhile to check out what new “old” stuff is up!
In the meantime – I will share just one of my sweet little Leia Madison…definitely one of my most challenging newborn sessions because it’s so difficult to photograph your own newborn. Not just because of the c-section but so many other issues when it’s your own! Anyway, I did manage to get a “few” I’ll share her full session later. For now here is one of my favorites: simple & pure, no fancy headbands or hats, no flashy props…just sweet, sweet, baby.
The busy outdoor season is officially in full swing (yay!) and so blog posts will get a bit shorter, but maybe more frequent as I try really hard to catch up, and you’ll see lots more fun outdoor work which I am excited to show and even more excited to shoot.
This is beautiful baby J, yes she is definitely indoor… with a touch of the outdoors brought to her session. This prop is real and I love it for that reason. It makes it that much more unique. It weighs a ton but again, love it. It’s currently undergoing a metamorphosis of sorts as it gets dried and treated for future use. While I looove the rich bark texture, I can’t wait to see how it’s going to look when it gets it’s new look!
That’s what this maternity session was all about. K & K’s connection was so easy to see and this mama to be’s connection to their soon-to-arrive baby girl was clearly there. Her confidence, happiness, and pregnancy glow were all there. And I loved capturing it.
