I don't think this little girl could be any sweeter. There is nothing I love more than a chunky newborn baby. okay, maybe one thing, and that's a chunky newborn baby that sleeps through her session. For this session I really wanted to keep things clean and modern. Nothing too fussy, just a focus on a beautiful new baby and her proud family. With a baby girl I love to include pops of color, in this case pink, without going crazy with it. a little bit of pale pink goes a long way. I am so lucky to be invited into a family's home during this special time right after the birth of their baby. I only take on up to 10 newborn sessions a week in order to make sure I can give each session the attention it deserves so if you're thinking of booking email me now before I fill up.
Its always so special to get to go back and see one of my newborn clients when they become a big brother or big sister. Which is exactly what I got to do with this adorable session in the Westchase neighborhood of Tampa, FL. Little Charlotte was just the sweetest little girl and her big brother could not have been more proud to show off his baby sister. One of the best parts of having more than one child is seeing the relationship between your kiddos. They may fight but the sweet moments make up for it.
These sweet moments only last so long and those of us with multiple children know how difficult it is to find the time to schedule things like newborn sessions when you are also juggling your child or toddler's schedule. But it is so worth it. Plus, I do all my newborn sessions in your home! no packing everyone up and driving to a studio, I bring the studio to you! So head over to My Contact page and send me an email. It's never too late to get yourself on the schedule because I only book 10 babies a month maximum.
When I arrived at little Jasper's house he was sleeping peacefully. However, that was all a trick. As I finished setting up he decided he needed to eat, pee, and poop twice. In all seriousness, once he was done with all the pooping he was a little angel. He slept peacefully for me even when the dog licked his face, which you can see below. He is such a sweet baby who in some ways reminds me of when my own sweet boy was little. I'm so glad I got to meet this family and document Jasper when he was just a little thing. Before they know it he'll be big.
These little girls gave me a run for my money but don't twins always do that. Those of you who knew me when my twins were little probably remember me going around like a half asleep zombie. However, it does eventually get better and easier and that was definitely my experience photographing little Alice and Rose. At first Alice was sleeping like a dream but Rose was very angry with the whole idea. Then they switched. But eventually everything fell into place and these little girls finally decided to show me how cute their little faces look when they're not pouting. Every time I shoot twins it brings me back to when mine were little, there's nothing like two little babies snuggled up together.
I met this little cutie this past weekend along with her mommy, daddy, and grandma and I haven't stopped looking at her photos since. Isn't she just adorable. Even though Everly did not much enjoy getting her photo taken you can't really tell. For most of the shoot Everly looked at me and at her mom but refused to go to sleep. Since she was pretty happy, I was happy to keep shooting. Then she fell asleep for a short while (during which I took many adorable photos). Then, She woke up MAD! After that she was really only happy if mom or dad was holding her which was great because it was time to take family photos anyway. Of course, as I walked out the door she was dozing again, isn't that just how babies are. Anyway, this little girl is super cute so enjoy a sneak peek of little Everly,
If you or someone you know is pregnant or recently had a baby and you're interested in booking a newborn shoot with me head on over to my Contact Me page and shoot me an email. I would love to meet you and your baby.
Happy Birthday Declan! I can't believe this guy is already turning one! And what a sweet boy he's turning out to be. He's all smiles until you put a camera in front of your face. All he wanted to do during his shoot is show off his skills pulling up to stand and crawling all over the place. I think he'll be walking soon and I can't wait to see him toddling around on those chunky legs of his.
Sweet little Brenna is here and her big sister couldn't be happier. I photographed the two of them in their home in Tampa, FL and they were so sweet. Brenna was feeling a little nervous about all this weird stuff going on around her so she decided to stay awake and keep an eye on things. Unfortunately, that meant that by the time I left she was pretty exhausted. When it was big sister Isla's turn to join her sister she was such a big girl. She did her best to follow all of my directions and give her best smile. I think Brenna is a lucky girl to have a big sister like Isla to look out for her.
My babies are getting so big! Myla is 18 months old now and Jameson and Hadley are five. It's so hard to believe. I've been wanting to try shooting some glitter portraits and decided that Myla's 18 month shoot was the perfect time for it since I love experimenting on my kids. Of course, once Jameson and Hadley found out what I was planning they decided they had to join in. This was such a fun shoot and all three kids really loved it. The only thing I didn't love was the clean up but for photos like these, I think it was worth it. The baby days go by so fast, and before I know it, Myla won't be a baby any more (cue the tears). But, at least I'll have plenty of photos of her little chubby cheeks.
Baby Jack is here. What an adorable, expressive little boy! When I first started photographing him he was wide awake, looking around at all this weird equipment I brought into his home and this machine that kept clicking in his face. He wasn't mad, just interested and giving me all kinds of cute and funny faces. But, he is brand new and after awhile he couldn't help but fall asleep. Even with only being there for a little while I can tell that little Jack brings a lot of joy into his home and I know he'll only continue to do so as he grows.
Happy first birthday Francesco! This little guy was such a sweetie and so are his parents and big brother. Francesco was feeling a little bit shy but he warmed up after awhile. He is much younger than his older brother and came along just when his parent's were sure their baby days were over. He has brought so much joy to their family, you can really see it in their eyes. In order to celebrate, his parents decided to recreate some photos that his brother Giovanni took when he was one. Francesco had other ideas in mind but we managed to capture a few. Including a few shots containing the same hat Giovanni wore in his photos, unfortunately Francesco's head is a little bigger than his brother's so we sat it next to him.
