Brayden's Newborn Session | Lynchburg Newborn Photographer



Lynchburg Newborn Photographer

When Jessica and I spoke over the phone for her consultation, I could tell she appreciated and was really excited about the full experience I offer my clients! As a new mama and a photographer herself, she definitely understands the hard work that goes into our final product and I know she was ready to feel pampered and relaxed! When you’re a photographer being photographed by someone you trust, it can be so nice to not have to worry about all the details involved. Needless to say, it was an honor to be able to take care of Jessica, Colby and Baby Brayden while they were here in my studio.

A lot of my clients travel to the studio, and Jessica and her family were no exception. They came almost three hours to have their pictures taken by me and I honestly find that to be such a huge compliment! However, traveling with a brand new baby is not easy. I work alongside my clients to help ease their worries about the trip and I give them some tips to help prepare their baby to have his or her pictures taken soon after a long trip.

Jessica wrote a whole blog post all about her experience with me and you can read it over on her blog. She included some details about their traveling hiccups as well as how the session went from start to finish. With her permission, I’ve grabbed a few quotes from her post to help share a little about what others can expect when they book a newborn session with Liz Cook Photography. I will say, she was very generous in her review! <3 (Thanks, girl!!)

“Liz snuggled, swaddled, shushed, and took the most beautiful images of our sweet baby boy ever. She is a magician because we were still in that “new parent phase”/”how the heck do we get this child to go to sleep phase”. When we walked in, I told her that he doesn’t sleep well, so we were BLOWN AWAY when she almost immediately was able to.“

“I’m not joking when I tell you all that Liz is a magician. She’s incredible!!! She was able to take two VERY stressed, overwhelmed, and uncomfortable new parents and make them look pretty stunning in our newborn photos!! And she was able to easily put Brayden back to sleep when he would wake up (I’m talking like 30+ times y’all). She’s a baby whisperer and I’m so grateful to have had the experience that we did with her in her home studio!

Once she was done photographing Brayden swaddled up all by himself, she photographed each of us with Brayden, then all of us together. Then, we changed into our more comfy/natural clothes and hopped onto the bed!“

“Brayden’s newborn photos could not have turned out better! Thank you so much Liz – we truly cannot thank you enough, and we can’t wait to see you this Fall for Brayden’s birthday photos!!“

Thank you so much, Jessica, for all of your kind words about your experience with me! I loved snuggling sweet Brayden and capturing your immense love for one another. I can’t wait to see you again in a few short months!
