Lauren – Newborn Session

August 19th, 2011

I just LOVE new babies, and when I say new, I mean days old. They are so soft, so flexible, and just adorable, especially when they are that tiny & have little baby fat rolls already. I was so pleased when I got the call to do Lauren’s photos, because not many years ago, I […]

I just LOVE new babies, and when I say new, I mean days old. They are so soft, so flexible, and just adorable, especially when they are that tiny & have little baby fat rolls already. I was so pleased when I got the call to do Lauren’s photos, because not many years ago, I also did her big brother’s newborn photos. So, I loaded up the gear & went out to meet the lovely Miss Lauren. In case you’re wondering, no, I don’t make the new moms leave the house with a newborn in tow, I totally do house calls!

So, let’s get to the photos. This girlie is gorgeous! So peachy, with little bits of baby fat here & there, chubby cheeks & perfect baby lips. Oooh, I wanted to take her home (well, for the daytime, and then bring her back around dusk!). She slept well, she gave me the poses I needed & she didn’t cry once. I might just have the magic touch with newborns after all — I seem to be saying those words a lot lately!

Baby J – Newborn Session

July 6th, 2011

What can I really say about a baby that’s only 4 days old and sleeps THIS well?  There are babies who are “O.K. sleepers”, there are the “really good sleepers”…and then there’s Baby J, who was awake when I arrived & promptly fell asleep. She woke up sometimes hours later, towards the end to say […]

 

What can I really say about a baby that’s only 4 days old and sleeps THIS well?  There are babies who are “O.K. sleepers”, there are the “really good sleepers”…and then there’s Baby J, who was awake when I arrived & promptly fell asleep. She woke up sometimes hours later, towards the end to say goodbye (and to wonder about all the tulle!). She slept as if she were on a beach on vacation. She was put in bowls, cuddled in blankets, laid out on platters, she was redressed, re-primped (is that even a word?), and finally fluffed & tutu’ed. And still she slept on.

Besides being a great sleeper (ok, sorry…last time, I was in awe!), She is just beautiful, with the most delicate little baby parts & pieces.

I’m not going to say newborn sessions are easy, or that I have the magic touch, because these sessions tend to go looooong! Even with sleeping beauty, I worked for hours. But if you’re considering it, I’d say the time put in is well worth it for the memories you’ll cherish when they’re long past the stage of sleeping this peacefully & fitting into the crook of your arm.

A few days ago, I blogged the maternity, and today, I’ll blog the newborns! Please meet William, Thomas & Naomi. So tiny & sweet as can be. I wasn’t quite sure how to approach this session other than make sure they were fed, sleepy & comfortable & then try to take photos before they wake each other up.  All hands were on deck for the afternoon game of “feed, soothe, pose, snap, rock, soothe, pose, soothe, snap”.

After a little bit, we finally got everyone settled & got into a good rhythm.  The heat lamp (cranked to the max) had every adult down to tanks & camis, as the babies slept like they were snoozing on a tropical beach somewhere.

I don’t know what else to say about these three, they’re tiny, perfect and it’s amazing that three babies could occupy the same belly for almost nine months. Taunya & Marvin – you guys did good, and I know you’re going to be awesome parents to these three!
