This little dream baby came to see me today. She was amazing and slept through her whole session until the last prop. She then ate and went right back to dream land. Ahhhh…..these sessions are what I live for! She was so beautiful too with the best head of hair! Welcome to the world sweet pea! I’m so happy that I met you and your family! I can’t wait to watch you grow!
This little man was the absolutely sweetest baby I’ve ever met. He really was a dream! There are a few sessions that I’ve had where the babies have slept through their entire session and he is now one of them. I always appreciate when a baby makes my life that easy and when parents follow my advice on what to do before the session! It’s so very important for a session to go smoothly. It’s cool that you can see a baby’s personality even at 8 days old! Some of these babies I can see just being so chill all through life and others, they will be out to conquer the world at full speed. hehe
He started stirring at the very end and I tried and tried to get him to open his eyes for one last shot and he finally did, just for a minute!
I don’t do older baby sessions anymore but I sure do love them! This baby girl’s aunt booked this session last December. A lot of people ask why I don’t do older baby sessions anymore. I really do love them and love how the pictures turn out but it requires packing up a lot of things in my car, driving to a location, scouting out some good spots, hoping for good weather and good light and then hoping that the baby isn’t cranky since the best time to do a session is just before sunset, the time when most babies are ready for bed. It’s so much easier to only do newborns in my studio where I know the light and the best time of day. I don’t have to go anywhere and I can get things set up exactly how I need for them to be. And I love it so very much! But this session did make me second guess my decision to specialize only in newborns because this girl was SO cute and so cuddly with her momma and grandmother! Who knows, maybe one day I’ll go back to doing everything but for now, it’s just newborns.
This morning I did a session with the most amazing little baby boy. He arrived ready to snooze and slept for his entire session which took a record time of less than 2 hours. His momma booked her session a while back and from her emails I felt like I already knew her when they arrived. I love when that happens. She is a lucky momma to have this very chill baby! And he’s lucky to have this loving momma. I really loved this session. It was one of those sessions that when it’s over, I just want to go skipping down the sidewalk because it was the type of session that makes me remember why I love this job so much! Thanks little man for making this morning so easy! You rock, buddy!
