Little 5 day old baby boy

Photographing little newborn babies is something that I am completely honored to do.  With every new family I journey with each is unique and beautiful in their own way. What a blessing to get to know them, to listen to how the met, their history and hear their future plans.  I LOVE welcoming a newborn into the world and am humbled every time a newborn comes into the studio.  This next young adorable family hung out with me earlier this week. It was awesome to see how relaxed and comfortable they were as I worked with their new son. Meet Charlie!  What an adorable 5 day old.  Not a peep out of him till the very end!  Charlie was so alert and curious at the beginning of our session however after a full tummy and dry bottom, the rest was magical.  These little people really are the boss. As mentioned many times before, being a mom helps and you go by their lead.  Patience is key when photographing newborns!

He enjoyed the session too see...

He was the most curious 5 day old I have ever photographed!  Soo cute...had to throw this one in there mom :)

This last photograph is pretty special. This blanket is 66 years old.  A true family heirloom on Dad's side.  Dad, Grandpa and many other's

were brought home from the hospital wrapped up in this. Something to cherish for years to come!


Kristy, Bryan thank you for allowing me to capture Charlie for you. What a blessing!  Enjoy him, they grow so fast and I'll see you real soon!
