Anyone that photographs newborns knows that ever session is different. For some reason lately my last three little boys have given me a run for my money and little Christian was no different. Usually I swaddle and they sleep but he was not here for it! He was awake the entire session! We still managed to get some great photos with his sister and brother and is Grandmother. Another loving family in the books and I am glad they are enjoying their images.
New family additions are a joy and when I get to be apart and photograph the family it is extra special for me! The Anderson's came to the studio and had ideas of what they wanted in their photos and Latoya had the most gorgeous gowns. We added a bit with the tutu for the black and white and she was very pleased with her images. I am eager to meet the new addition who should be arriving soon.
I had the great pleasure of traveling to Alabama to capture the newborn photos for this little princess. She was so small and cuddly it was hard for me to put her down and get these few shots. Her big sister Aurora even got in on a couple even though she wasn't feeling the greatest on this day. Then to pull out the final photo...a baby that has Texas roots has to represent and that Miss Maria did. Huge thanks to her mother and father for trusting me to take spend this time with them.
BABY ALERT!!!! 11 days old and Andrew was in from of my camera! He has a special blanket that he loves and without it...he doesn't stay asleep very long. His mother and I had a time trying to keep him cozy and comfy. As you can see even swaddled he was wide awake, but as soon as you put the magic blanket on him he would go to sleep. He was adorable and can't wait to see him in 3 months!
Family sessions are so much fun...especially when they are a combo to announce the new arrival to the family. This session was so fun and carefree on a chilly afternoon. The girls were glad to walk in the leaves and sit and look at the water while mom and dad took some photos with each other. I can't wait to meet the new little one and capture his first moments.
Babies are amazing and when you get to photograph two of them it is a wonderful thing! I met these two little ones at 11 days old and they were just gorgeous. Malia with her calm demeanor and Joseph, who is the feisty one already, brought such a joy. Once both were asleep, because one would be awake and the other would snuggle, we were able to snap a couple of portraits.
I have learned so much through newborn photography and the number one thing is PATIENCE!! I had a totally different vision for this session but you have to always be flexible when it comes to little ones. I can't wait to see them grow and develop their personalities to see if they stay calm and feisty! :-)
