Eyes Wide Open/Asheville Newborn Photographer

Today I did a session with this adorable little man.  I loved snuggling him and I got lots of snuggle time.  He decided half way through his session that he just wasn’t tired anymore.  He tricked me too because at the beginning of his session, he was zonked out, to the point that I thought we would get through the whole session without him waking up.  You never know how a newborn session is going to go!  Thank you mom for being so patient and grandma too!  You have one very beautiful little boy and I loved spending time with you guys.  I hope you get lots of sleep tonight!

Big sister was perfect!  I love having older siblings in the studio so that we can do shots like this!  Look at his little smile!

Crosby/Asheville Newborn Photographer

A very dear friend of mine had her baby boy, Crosby.  It’s funny, but the way that she told me she was pregnant was by asking, “So how can I book a newborn session?”  hehe  This baby boy was wanted by this family for so long so when he came to be, I was thrilled for them!  The night that mom went into labor, I barely slept and when I did, I had dreams about her and Crosby.  The next morning, her husband sent me a picture of her holding Crosby in the tub and the look on her face was pure joy.  I am not sure I have ever cried so many happy tears, except with my own babies.  I am so very happy for this family and I loved every second of this session.  I loved how much mom was so in love with her little boy and how she just got the biggest smiles on her face when she looked at him in different poses or when he made cute little noises or smiled.  I loved how dad was so natural with him when I posed them together.  And big sister, I knew she was going to be awesome, because she always is.  She likes to take her pictures quickly and then run out to go play but the time that she gives me, she just poses and it’s so cute!  Thank you guys so much for allowing me to capture this sweet little man.  I read that grandma said that he had already grown, just since birth!  They grow up fast.  It’s no lie.  Soak it all in.  Before we all know it, he’s going to be running around with the big kids!  I love you guys!!  xoxo

Sweet Baby Reese!/Asheville Newborn Photographer

A friend of mine just had her third baby, but her first girl!  I’ve loved watching her go through her pregnancy and celebrating with her when she found out it was  girl.  She’s such a great mom and is so in love with her babies.  She has been so excited about her session and so have I.  I couldn’t wait for Reese to be born so that I could finally see that sweet little face.  She was just as cute as I knew she would be.  Her session was probably one of the longest sessions I’ve had.  Her favorite sleeping place was in her momma’s arms and who could blame her?  But I’m glad that mom was just as determined as I was to get some beautiful shots.  And we did!  Thank you so much for choosing me to do photos for you, friend!  I can’t wait to hold that baby girl again!

New Path/Asheville Newborn Photographer

So as time has gone on, I have discovered how much I truly love newborn photography.  I love working with families and children too but after lots of thinking and ho and humming, I have decided that my focus is now going to be on newborns and babies up to one year.  I will still be doing family sessions for families that have done  sessions with me in the past or families that do newborn/baby sessions with me but I will no longer be taking new families for family sessions.  I may eventually only be doing family sessions as mini-sessions in the spring and fall, but for now I will book them anytime of year.  This is a huge step, leading in the direction that I want to take.  I’m excited and nervous about it.  Will I be able to get enough business?  Will I miss doing so many family sessions?  Only time will tell and I can always go back!  So yay to change and to doing what you love.  This is hardly considered a job because I adore it so much!

To totally change the subject, here are some more photos from last weekend’s session.  This little man is just precious!
