Adeline | Newborn Session
 

This girl. So sweet. So funny. She loved flinging her arms and legs out at just the exact moment that I got her into a pose. I would just laugh and start the pose over again. Patience is a virtue!

Mama was surprised that Adeline didn't cry during her session. All moms worry about this when they come to my studio. But moms, don't stress! I got this. I have a few tricks up my sleeve to get your sweet babes to sleep. As long as you follow the guidelines I send you before your session, it should go perfectly smooth!

Side note: who are all these gorgeous mamas who keeping coming in looking totally flawless at two weeks postpartum? I never look this good. Tell me your secrets!

Finley Mae | Newborn Session
 

This doll.... sweet Finley Mae was in my studio just a few short weeks ago. She was SO SLEEPY and barely even stirred when I moved her from pose to pose. #photographersdreambaby

I love the colors Mama chose for her session. She told me that Finley's nursery was gray with hints of pink, so that's the palette we incorporated. So soft and feminine!

Finley's whole family is extremely photogenic and made my job super easy. Her mama looked stunning in a gown from my studio wardrobe! (All mamas are welcome to borrow a gown from my collection when they come in for their newborn's session.)

And she and her big sis, Nora, looked so cute in their matching tees and tutus.

Chloe | Maternity Session
 

I'm over here just counting down the days until Chloe's due date... I cannot wait to get my hands on her baby boy.

In April, just before the heat hit, I ventured outside with Chloe and Jake for this beautiful desert maternity session. We fought the prom photo crowd at Scorpion Gulch (you guys, SO. MANY. HIGH-SCHOOLERS.) Worth it though, because that place has some pretty landscape and unique backdrops.

Also, speaking of high-schoolers, Chloe and Jake are high school sweethearts. How cute are they?

BTW, both of the gowns Chloe is wearing are from my studio wardrobe. I brought them on location with my portable changing tent and she got dressed right there! 

 
Declan Liam | Newborn Session
 

Well, I'm a couple months behind in blogging about sessions. So I'll try to catch up!

In April, I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet baby boy, Declan, and his family. He was perfect throughout his whole session!

I have to admit though, his big sis kind of stole the show with that big, beautiful smile and gorgeous red hair! Are they not the cutest brother-sister duo??

Declan is already so loved by his family and has probably spent the first two months of his life being spoiled with lots and lots of snuggles!
