My First Newborn Session

I have 2 children so I knew going into last Saturday's session...Newborns work on their OWN terms :-) So I came prepared with lots of time to spare just in case.

I had the pleasure of taking photos of this beautiful family. I knew the Momma casually and met her Hubby and beautiful baby girl that morning. The precious girl was OH SO VERY cooperative for about the first hour. I mean, we were all so impressed. But then, we tried for some ideas I had in my head that involved lying down.

This idea had not been run by her and she objected. :-) But that's ok because I still feel we got some beautiful shots.

See for yourself.


This one takes my breath! She was mesmerized with my camera and my flash. And when it wasn't my flash, she was busy watching my very own Baby Girl dance and entertain her.

My goal when I started doing this was not just to take some pictures for folks. It was to capture "moments" that convey emotion. This picture does it for me! I absolutely love Momma's smile as she holds her precious girl.


A few more...





This one CRACKS me up! The way she is cutting her eyes at me makes me laugh so hard that I had to throw it in here as well.

And you know me...I can't leave this post without some collages.




These were just a few my favorites that I had to get up here. I'm still going thru the rest and hope to get them to "B" soon.

Kiss your babies. They grow up way too fast!
