Meet 9 day old Jack. This little guy was at the end of my “newborn time-frame of 5-9 days”, so I was looking forward to a wide awake baby but I was pleasantly surprised! Baby Jack was still all sleepy and curly just like I want my newborns to be. 🙂 One of the things that I love about on-location newborn sessions, is being able to include the new nursery in the photos! Most families put a lot of time and money into creating the nursery and it is great to document that as well.
As many of you may have heard, we are in the process of becoming an accredited Special Needs Photographer. Special needs kids have always held a special place in my heart and this is something that I am so excited to be doing.
As part of this process, we needed to develop a special needs portfolio and precious little Lauren was one of my first subjects for this new adventure. We had such a great time running around the park and shooting away! I couldn’t stop laughing as she yelled “you’re funny!” to my “no, you’re funny!”, over and over and over again! It never did get old. 🙂
I cannot say enough about how much I adore this little girl! I have been dying to get my hands on little Karley for months now so when her mom was asking for someone to watch her one day, I jumped at the chance to play! Having 2 boys of my own, we had a day of girlie fun… dress-up, a mani and pedi, pigtails, you name it… so of course, I had to take her down to the studio for a quick little photo session! Love this girl!!
I just LOVE when my clients have me come back year after year after year to document the birth of their new baby! I first met the Rittenhouse family when Jen was pregnant with Baby #1. I was honored to photograph not only Baby #1 and Baby #2…but now for Baby #3. Love, love, love watching these kiddos grow up! Now the question is, will I be back in another 18 months? If Mom has her way, yes!! 😉
This session is a perfect example of how even if you *think* that your precious baby isn’t behaving or playing along with the crazy photographer’s ideas…you just have to trust said photographer that the images will be beautiful. 🙂
Meet 8 day old Baby Grayson… who really wanted nothing to do with sleep except for maybe the rare 30 sec here and there. As I always tell my new mommy and daddy clients, it only takes a second to get *that* shot, so trust me… we will get those amazing sleeping baby shots that you crave, even if baby doesn’t really want to play along! Enjoy!
