When this session first started, this gorgeous baby girl was still working on sitting independently.  By the end, she was starting to crawl!  I was so ecstatic I was able to not only witness these milestones unfold before my eyes, but to capture them with my camera.   These magical moments combined with those big brown eyes and that sweet grin = me in photography heaven!

When photographing this adorable newborn, she had so many beautiful features I just *had* to photograph!   This little girl had the cutest pout, and her lashes went on for days.  In addition to full body posing, I always document some of the smallest details using my macro lens.  Often times, parents fall in love with these tiny details, but aren’t quite sure what to do with these images.  Sure, you could blow an image of a foot up to a wall size canvas, but what I usually suggest is some kind of storyboard.  In this case, we pulled together some of the parent’s favorite images into a beautiful collage.

Stacy - They are all so lovely! Great job!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I LOVE photographing 6 month olds!!!  This adorable little baby boy was an absolute joy to have in the studio – sitting up with that heart melting, toothy, little grin!  I was so glad his parents were prepared to hop in for a few frames and we got a beautiful family portrait.  Now I see where this little man gets his good looks!

I’ve been thinking about what the best part of my job as a baby photographer is.  Snuggling with the sleepy newborns is pretty awesome, but watching those babies grow up before my lens is absolutely the best.  When I met little Olivia as a newborn, I knew she was going to be a beautiful baby.  I had no idea just how adorable those big blue eyes would be and just look at that smile!!!  Even with little fingers (or toes!) involved, that smile just lights up a room.  I didn’t think it was possible, but over the past 6 months this little one got even cuter!

August 11, 2012 - 3:20 pm

Shelby - Yes, she’s beautiful and so happy! I love the photo with her toes in her mouth! Her parents must be thrilled to have such beautiful photos!

August 13, 2012 - 12:10 am

Melissa - Oh. My. What a beautiful baby girl! Seriously love the first image. Stunning!

August 13, 2012 - 6:49 pm

Kel Ward - Oh my gosh, she is absolutely beautiful! Just when I think I’m perfectly content with my three boys, you go and post this! Not fair!!

August 14, 2012 - 5:40 pm

August 15, 2012 - 2:40 pm

Some things have a way of working out perfectly!  This baby’s on location photography session had the perfect flow.  I arrived just in time for Dad to came home from work for a little lunch.  By the time he finished, I was all set up and this photographer was ready to go!  First up was family shots with a wide awake, ADORABLE little blue eyed boy and then individual parent shots.  Dad was free to go back to work (boo!) so we sent him on his way.  Little boy blue fell fast asleep and we finished up with some sleepy baby images.  Not every 2 month old session goes this smoothly, but this one really was an absolute pleasure!  As if things couldn’t get any more perfect – the little man had THE BEST name!  I am seriously LOVING the name – Mr Cooper Montgomery “Last Name”  – might just be the best name ever!
