Such sweet little boy and wonderful family. I had the pleasure of capturing his birth, returning about a week later to capture pictures of him at home with his mom and dad.

With pleasure I got to work with baby Cameron and his parents in their home. As you can see he was a super sleeper for me. He even gave me the biggest smile. Welcome sweet one!

Julianna’s mom wrote last week to schedule her daughter’s one year pictures. ONE YEAR?!?!? She’s one already???? How did that happen? Seeing as I hadn’t yet blogged her newborn session, I decided I had better get on that!

Her mom and I have talked about this – so I am not sharing anything she doesn’t know – but Julianna was one of my more challenging newborns of 2012. We sailed through the “lifestyle” photos in the beginning without issue. However once it was time for her to fall asleep and let me pose her, that’s when difficulty started.

It took a couple of hours and me coming back the next day for us to realize that I was only going to get one pose out of Julianna per nursing. So it went a little like this – mom nursed her to sleep, we would get her on the beanbag, bowl, etc in a pose, I would snap the picture, I would try to move her to the next pose, she would wake and cry. Repeat.

Despite the difficulties, the pictures from the session were beautiful. I couldn’t be happier to have worked with such a lovely family. And I am happy to say that mom reports that Julianna is a much happier babe.

Baby William’s mom was so sweet in writing me at 39 weeks wanting a maternity session. She joked it was a nesting thing! Sadly I was about to board a plane to go to a workshop to sharpen my skills in newborn posing/photography followed by a family vacation. By the time I got back, this little one was almost two weeks old, so I had the pleasure of taking his newborn photos.

I still remember the morning. It was cold and slick from a snowfall. I questioned why it was that I do on location newborn shoots as I lugged all my gear up the steps to their home. Being in the city, in St. Paul, the plows hadn’t quite been through to clear everything away.

However once inside I was reminded why I do what I do. Baby William was all snuggled up with his mom. It was nice and toasty in the house – perfect for a newborn shoot. Grandma was there too loving on her new grandson. Having just returned from my workshop, I got to use my new skills. I simply love the results!

I had the pleasure of working with Baby Galen and his parents a couple weeks ago. This session was special in that the parents wanted some skin to skin pictures with baby. Often, especially with birth photography, I am attempting to avoid showing nudity. However this session it could be embraced. I love the closeness and beauty of what we were able to capture.

Just a quick post today. I really love to visit with birth clients sometime after the birth. I love seeing how much baby has grown and being able to touch base about the birth. I got to do this the other day with baby Marcel, who is almost 6 weeks old already, and his parents. One thing that is nice about taking pictures of a baby who is a little older is that they are smiling. Love this one I caught of Marcel giving his mama a big one!

This little guy surprised everyone by arriving early. As a result he needed to spend his first several weeks in the NICU.  Once home, I got to meet all five pounds of him! He was by far one of my easiest newborns to pose – perhaps due to being early or still so little – I am not sure. Whatever it was, I was able to get so many beautiful of the pictures of him and his parents.

I was so hoping to be at this little girl’s birth. When her mom and I talked about it, I knew I was scheduled for vacation a couple days after she would hit week 42. However this was her second child and what was the chance of her lasting past week 42?  Well, I guess the chance was good because that is actually what happened. So rather than birth pictures, I got to meet baby Philomena, a.k.a Poppy, a little over a week after she was born to do newborn pictures.

Not only did I get to meet Magnus at this shoot, but also his “big sister” Belle. She was keenly interested in everything I was doing. It was too funny not to snap a couple of her as well as the baby. And what about the Sock Monkey set – isn’t it the cutest? M’s mama found it for him on Etsy.

I am in awe of how beautiful this mom is – especially just two weeks after having her beautiful baby girl! Mom mentioned how Juliana even slept in the morning so she was able to get ready for the shoot. Wasn’t that kind of her? Can’t wait to show this sweet family their photos!
