Oh happy day! When one goes to visit a brand new little peanut who was born on the exact date of your husband's birth, one feels particularly excited about the shoot. Baby Zoe looks JUST like her papa, it was almost comical. And of course, dad's beyond taken with his new little princess. It was such a delight capturing baby Zoe in all her newness and even a bigger delight to watch first time parents interact with their newborns before they've gotten that practiced confidence. Another reason Fresh48's are a favorite session of mine.
Max you're here! Max Q here is born to the Teen Ministry Leaders at the local church we attend and is born to a large crowd of adoring fans already. I, being their photographer, had the chance to meet him first of course. HA! Take that all you teens. Ah...good going Lucy, decades older and not a day more mature.
Max is as perfect as can be and I can't wait to see them shortly after for his newborn session. What is it with brand new babies and their incredible smell though? Makes being a professional next to impossible since the entire 30 minutes of shooting I was fighting off the urge to throw my camera aside as a distraction and run off with him into the sunset. See you soon little one!
I love the name Oliva...and I loved baby Olivia. Baby Olivia slept like a champ and was so good to Mike. Mike doesn't assist on all shoots but when he does, I pray that the babies are "nice". Even more exciting, Olivia let us VERY safely and via composite images, create the baby hanging portrait! Said portrait is now proudly adorning the wall of The Cradle Family. Now we talk about Olivia's mama...
Elizabeth is one of the completely effortlessly stunning women who completely came unprepared to the shoot (no makeup, casual clothing) But of course, I asked her to jump in for a few shots with her little because it would've been a shame to not capture this mother and her mini-me.
As always, here's my wish for you:
May you grow up to be just like your mama, beautiful, kind, devoted, down to earth, and wonderfully engaging. May you look at the world with patience and wonder, forgiving those who trespass against you and not sweating the small stuff. Laugh at the all the days to come.
Our studio will only take on 7 newborns a month due to the curated time spent with each mama/newborn family. Book yours today to reserve a spot on our calendar.
Auntie Lucy is giddy. GIDDY. My beautiful baby niece, my very first newborn client, came for her holiday session with her mama and papa. Baby J is so big I can't believe my eyes. Was there a cuter baby in the entire world? The answer is no and I'm not even sorry.
Mike was able to assist during the shoot but to be completely honest, he did more harm than good and totally scared baby J during her shoot. She took one look at him and cried and cried. We did manage though, I mean, didn't we manage? So in love with this family and even more in love with being an aunt.
Let's do this again soon! I want more pictures!! Auntie wants more pictures!

I met Christina when I was still a college student, living in Manhattan, studying to pass my CPA exams. Little did I know, in just two short years, I would pack up my whole life, move across the country for the man that I love, right into Christina's little neighborhood. We've been friends since and I'm so honored to be able to capture these photos for you this holiday season.
How blessed you are my friend...this is your lot in life, to be surrounded, loved, and worshipped by 4 handsome men.
