New Baby Boy

Baby J’s mom contacted me in response to a maternity model call. You may notice these are new baby photographs and not maternity ones. Poor mom sent me a message and not an hour later sent me a new one saying her doctor didn’t think she would make it to a photoshoot. Her doctor was right Sweet Baby Boy J was born the next day! 

Babies have a mind of their own even before they are born. If you are thinking about having maternity portraits created or maybe you know you should document your pregnancy in some way please, please, please don’t delay call me today and lets get you reserved on my calendar. And don’t forget to ask about your free belly cast as well.

Ok enough jabbering about maternity photos and let’s talk about this sweet new baby. Isn’t he just precious? He loved being swaddled, he was happy to be in his birthday suit and he had no problem being moved to the bowl either. Saying he was chill little man would be an understatement.

Dreamy Maternity Portraits in Studio

Dreamy Maternity

Momma E came in to model this cream dress for our studio look book. The dress photographed like a dream. Momma E wore it well. Don’t you all think she looks amazing? I love how it shows off her baby bump but is not too revealing. Leave her some love in the comments on these dreamy maternity portraits!

Some moms to be don’t want to show a lot of skin and this is a great way to celebrate your pregnancy without feeling exposed. Adding on a wrap or shawl could give you even more coverage if desired. This dress would also make a great post delivery momma and baby portrait.

Hopefully we can try it out when this little guy arrives this summer. Your family can’t wait to meet you little one! I look forward to meeting you when you visit the studio for your newborn portrait session. Thanks again Momma E for coming in and modeling my dresses I really appreciate it.

Newborn Baby Girl

Newborn Baby Girl

Oh My Goodness, I totally loved this session. I mean I knew I would since I would get to catch up with a good friend from college. And get to see her newborn baby girl before any one else! One of the perks of being a newborn photographer, even in the winter I get to see all the babies first. But that is not why it will go down as one of my favorite portrait sessions from this year. 

Why then you ask was I so stoked to photograph this adorable little one? Her mom brought in props. And not just any props. She brought in her wedding veil. Wedding veils are gorgeous of course and this one was no exception. But why was I hyperventilating over a veil. Because my friends props with meaning are the way to my heart strings. Your sweet innocent baby girl photographed on her momma’s wedding veil is going to become a treasured keepsake portrait for generations to come. It will mean just as much to this little girl in 30 years as it does to her momma right now.

Memory Keeper

As a memory keeper this kind of portrait makes my heart skip a beat. Knowing that she has an actual print of her favorite portrait of her baby in her wedding veil just makes my year. Knowing that print will last for 100 years and be viewed and shared with family. This my friends is why I encourage everyone to print their memories. Digital file storage devices have a shelf life of maybe 8 years before the device can corrupt or fail. Prints last a life time. Print your memories or come see me and let me create printed portrait memories for your family.

Pregnancy portraits to Treasure

Pregnancy portraits to Treasure

This beautiful family came to see me while they were waiting for their darling baby girl to arrive. Mom had a few ideas for the baby announcement and dear son had a few ideas of his own so we went with it. What you cannot see in these images are the basketballs and fire trucks he wanted in every photograph. Sweet toddlers are very determined when it comes to sports they love and super heroes they idealize.

Back to the portraits

This sweet family came prepared for anything and even brought the awesome fire truck. The fire truck was so cool with a working bell and everything. I will not lie I kind of wanted to keep it 😉 But my favorite images are the ones I think they will forever treasure. The intimate black and whites portraits that capture that connection between mom and son are just beautiful. The portrait that shows the family waiting and preparing for a new addition are heartwarming. Those are the images that make my heart sing. These pregnancy portraits are the ones that the kids will look at as teenagers and think my mom and dad wanted me so badly you can see it here. My parents love me more than life itself. The beauty of a family waiting for baby gosh I tell you I love this job!

Genuine Family Portraits Denver, NC

Genuine Family Portraits Denver, NC

When I first found out this gorgeous family was moving away I was sad and very surprised. They had a sweet baby boy and they were moving so far away. You know I get kind of attached to my tiny babies. Something about holding a newborn when they are only a few days old makes you want to protect them and watch them grow. Then when I found out he was having a little sister so very far away I was down right depressed. Momma was a stunner with her first pregnancy. Fast forward a short time and I get a phone call out of the blue. This beautiful family is moving back. And the first thing mom did after landing back in the area was call me for a family portrait session.

I am honored and humbled to be the first call and to be chosen as their family photographer! I was so excited to catch up with them and meet their sweet baby girl. And that precious baby boy has grown into a handsome little guy who loves cars, tractors, throwing rocks and playing bashful.

We had a great outdoor portrait session.

Below are a few ideas for wall collections I created for their inspiration gallery. The family image in that simple cream frame is just classic. “Your family is a work of art. Frame it!” Which option from these genuine family portraits speaks to you?

Showing off baby sister

Showing off their new baby sister

These kiddos were so excited when they heard they were going to have a new baby sister. Then of course there was the waiting and the planning. Deciding how to decorate her nursery. Her big sister had a lot to say about the room decorations. And of course with older siblings there was the searching for all the baby stuff that had been put away. New baby girl clothes, toys, bottles and the inevitable questions. What will she look like? What will she be like? Will she like us? How big will she be when she is born? Can we hold her right away? There is also some worrying. When will she arrive? Will she be healthy? Will she cry a lot? Will she play with my toys? That’s the funny thing about new babies. All those questions and concerns seem to disappear once the little one arrives. These big siblings were in awe of tiny little Nina. Here they are showing off their new baby sister. Congratulations to the whole family!

3 month old twin baby portraits

3 month old twin baby portraits | Mooresville, NC

I photographed 3 month old twin baby portraits a while back and had a ton of fun with these two little ones. Twins are always so fascinating. How much will they look alike? How different will their personalities be? And at 3-months-old can I get them to smile at the same time? At this age getting one baby to smile is usually a guarantee but twins can take some jumping through hoops, especially when someone decides to take a nap. Their parents and grandmother accompanied them for their 3-month-old twin portraits. And thank goodness because their grandmother was just magic. Just look at the way he looks up at her! Can you feel the love between them?

I can see these two are going to be like peas and carrots and give everyone a run for their money. Look at the image of the two of them together it’s like they are preparing their first fist bump. I swear they said to each other “ok when its time for the family photos lets fall asleep” We couldn’t get them to stay awake so their grandmother just whispered in their ears and they were out like lights. It was truly magical to watch. You can see from these portraits they have one pretty proud papa too!
