Newborn Callie | Baby photography

This session was in the works since her sweet momma found out she was pregnant. We messaged back and forth discussing options and colors. I could hardly wait to do the shot with the crown. When I got Callie positioned and put the crown on her head, her mom and I both got choked up. I love when a plan comes together. This beautiful baby was so content and a perfect angel during her session.

Precious newborn baby | Newborn photography

For a newborn baby photography session I usually recommend that the parents try to keep the baby awake for a little bit before. I also have them feed baby as soon as they arrive at my place. This way I can usually get a pretty sleepy baby for some good posing. This little one had already been sleeping for a bit before arriving so I wasn’t sure how we’d do. When I came into my little studio room after mom had fed her I was shocked at how “out cold” she was. They changed her diaper and she didn’t make a peep. I almost always start with the baby wrapped up to allow for some deep sleep. Maddie didn’t even need that. I’m quite sure I could have moved her in any different way and she’d just sleep. Only at the very end did she wake up and look at me intently but still there was no crying. A dream!

It’s always special to do newborn sessions for a friend’s baby. Maddie’s mom and I had spent a lot of time together in high school. It was great to catch up with her and meet her sweet, sweet daughter.

Giddy up, cowgirl! | Newborn photography

Spunky. That’s how I would describe this little baby during her session. It took me two tries (on two different days) to get the shots I wanted of her. Though it made me work a little harder, I loved her personality that was already shining through at just a few days old. I also was particularly excited to use the saddle her mom brought as a prop. It’s always fun for me to include special items that parents bring.
