I got the call around 11pm on October 31st. It was storming like crazy outside, in true Halloween spirit. Robin was in active labor and they were headed to the hospital. Her doula gave me a call to let me know how Robin was doing, and I made the decision to run home (I was next door watching a movie with my sister) and grab my go-bag to leave. Their little boy was born that next day on November 1st. Fast forward 1 week and I made a visit to their home for a sweet newborn session. He had already grown so much since first being placed in his moms arms just 7 days… Keep Reading
A beautiful home birth from October. This family waited until babies debut to find out the gender and they were so surprised when they welcomed their first little boy after having 3 girls before him. The day was filled with family, reading scripture and at the end, welcoming a son into his home. Congratulations again, Franklin family. I loved being there with you during this exciting and special time. [Disclaimer: some photos in the video aren’t accurate representations of the real photos. A lot of black and white images got discolored and pixelated by my video software, especially in the beginning of the video – I’m currently on the hunt… Keep Reading
A sweet, little, lifestyle newborn session I got to do for one of my amazing birth mom’s. Baby Mira is a gem and was an absolute delight to shoot. You are so very loved, little girl. You have no idea how much.
Getting to return after babies birth-day and capture a family in their home is always so much fun. Watching mom and dad in their comfort zone. Seeing how they’ve adjusted and how baby has changed the way they go about their day. Watching and quietly capturing them as they learn more about each other and their newest babe. Baby Ethan is this families first little one. He was busy taking in all his surroundings; the different noises, lights, and soft whispers by mom just before he drifted off to sleep while I left. It’s funny how you never really know what will happen at a Lifestyle Newborn session. Each one is so… Keep Reading
I had the opportunity to photography a sweet growing family in Navarre. They had their first child, a little boy, at home and asked me to come in and take some newborn photos. He was the quietest little guy and just watched everything around him until he finally fell asleep at the end of our time together. He had the cutest tiny lips, which you will see at the end. It makes me miss the days when my girls were this little, but at the same time thankful that they still love to cuddle, just like this little guy. –
First 48 sessions are so fun. Definitely one of my favorites to photograph. Baby has been with his parents for a bit, things have quieted down and I get to capture a new family as they bond with their newest little one. Sometimes it’s while their family is in the room, and other times, like here, just with mom, dad and then grandma as she popped in for her first introduction. A little peek at Atlas and his parents as they cuddle in bed, have sleepy smiles, kiss and count those 10 little toes and nurse while dad relaxes up close to his wife and son.
