One of my very dear friends, Kat, asked me a few months back if I would take pictures at the birth of their fourth sweet baby.  I think it took me a few moments before I caught my breath again because ..WOW.  What an honor.  I was overwhelmed at the thought of even getting to witness such a beautiful day, let alone having the opportunity to take pictures and capturing these important moments…..I mean, that’s a little bit of pressure!

Kat and Craig were both so unbelievable and open….and I just told them to pretend I wasn’t there.  Ha!

And if that wasn’t enough….both Kat and Craig wanted to wait to find out if their last little one would be adding more blue or a splash of pink to the family….we were all in a bit of suspense.  They did know that either way, Garner would be the perfect completion to their family…one they had been waiting and hoping for for a very long time.

I also decided to try something a little different…something that I haven’t done before.

I added a “life in motion” aspect to this session, and  I think I’m hooked y’all.  I hope to be doing lots more of these in the future.

 

This photo session was a long time coming.  We originally scheduled in back in May, but that was around the time it rained for a month straight. Then we moved it to July, and that was when we realized that our original idea of an outdoor photo session was probably not going to turn out so great in 100 degree heat.

So, hoping the third time was a charm, we decided that an in home session with air conditioning would make for much happier, cuter pictures all around….and I think we got plenty of those!

Sweet Hannah was such a dream baby.

 She wanted to ease into everything by just being in her happy place….right by mom and dad….and that was just fine by me, because those are some of my most favorites shots anyways!

 She quickly got worn out with all the snuggles and fell fast asleep, allowing me to focus some shots on this gorgeous little girl.

There is probably no more special session for me than this one.

My dearest friend of more than 20 years asked me take newborn pictures of her little girl….and it was all I could do to not just snuggle her the entire time and instead, actually remember to click the shutter on the camera because I wanted to just stare at her beautiful face and talk with Sheila about how excited we were she was actually here!

I’m so excited to introduce you to Meyer….

I often tell my families that newborn sessions with your second child are usually pretty different than your first.  It’s not only because you feel a little more at ease, having had this parenting thing kinda down by now (I kid), but also it becomes so much more than just a newborn session.  I love capturing those early interactions with your oldest child and their new brother or sister…those first few days as a new family of 4 can be such a blur, but they are so precious and fun watching new bonds form.

One of the best things about being a newborn photographer and a family photographer is I get to see my little ones grow up!  They change so much in that first year!!  I loved getting to catch up with Henry and his family.  We had already rescheduled due to weather one time and then those crazy Memorial Day storms happened and threatened to cancel again….but we ended up with gorgeous sunlight and a perfect morning session
