I probably sound like a broken record saying “This is one of my favorite sessions I’ve ever photographed!” but I wouldn’t be a growing artist if I couldn’t keep saying that - right? :) In all honesty, this family was so pleasant to work with. Baby Levi was an absolute gem, sleeping through his entire session! Mom and dad weren’t afraid to show him all the love and affection and they all made my job so easy to grab some great captures of their photogenic family. :)
When baby James' mom, a local midwife in the Lynchburg area, reached out to me about photographing her son's newborn session I was so honored! What a treat to have another birth professional in the area trust me with capturing this precious season for her. We quickly secured a date and they traveled to the studio all the way from their home in Charlottesville, VA for his newborn session.
They arrived to the studio relaxed and... early! Believe it or not, I tend to expect my newborn clients to arrive a little late. That's usually what happens when you are still getting used to having a new life to be responsible for! But because they were traveling from so far, they overcompensated on time and we were able to start their session early. We each took turns snuggling their handsome little guy, and I was able to capture all of his unique details and mannerisms as well as how deeply loved he is. Baby James was the smiliest baby I have ever photographed! It was so fun capturing that little grin over and over again!
Here are a few of my favorite newborn pictures from our time together:
Are you expecting and ready to book your newborn session? I am currently booking sessions as far out as early Winter 2017. Newborn sessions are best scheduled before your baby has arrived. If you have waited until the last minute, please contact me - if I am able to fit you in, I will! I don't want you to miss out on the opportunity to have this short and sweet season of life documented.
All newborn sessions include the use of the studio wardrobe, a styling consultation to discuss the look and feel you desire for your session, as well as my exclusive client preparation guide. On site hair and make-up services are also available with our stylist so that you feel relaxed, confident and beautiful at your session. I make the process of preparing for your session simple and seamless, so you can focus on your first priority, taking care of your newborn baby. Contact me today to reserve your session.
Opening a brick and mortar studio almost two years ago (after eight years of being in business and traveling for every single session!) has opened many doors for my business and my clients! This past fall, we moved into a larger space and it has truly been a dream come true. I love to welcome clients of all ages into my studio!
After just a few months in the new space, I have fine tuned a system and workflow for newborn sessions and I thought it would be helpful to share more details with anyone who is considering hiring a newborn photographer.
What's better than getting to see your best friend's baby right after he is born (considering they live 8hrs away)? Getting the chance to photograph the whole family, of course! I absolutely adore this family and the dynamics they share. And they were all soooo in love with baby Raphael, especially big sister Penelope!
