Newborn Portraits

Sweet baby girl M was just a joy to photograph. She arrived for her newborn portrait session at just 10 days old. The perfect time for newborn portraits, I usually recommend between 3-14 days old. Miss M cooperated for not only her portraits but she even allowed me to add on family portraits and images with just mom and then dad. Whew what a trooper. She was so content to sleep and let me do my thing. Goodness I wanted to keep her for a while longer, gosh I love my job!


If your expecting and considering a newborn portrait session please call or email to let me know. I prefer to get due dates on the books so that I can insure enough time in the schedule. Also I love to photograph those beautiful belly bumps too!

Joey 9 days old

Sweet baby Joey was the prefect newborn model for our portrait session a few weeks ago. Yes I am way behind on blogging. Little Joey was 9 days old at the time of his newborn portrait session. This the perfect time for a newborn session. I tell moms to bring them in between 4 and 10 days old. We had a great session and were able to include individual newborn portraits as well as family poses. Thanks again to Mom and Dad for agreeing to family portraits at your newborn session. I feel like I have to insist that parents do family portraits at this time. I have never had a mom or dad regret having them done. Parents are always so happy to see the final results ;) Congratulations again he is just beautiful.






Maverick | Sherrill’s Ford Newborn Photographer

Mr Maverick can come model for this newborn photographer any day of the week. He was so sweet and happy to sleep once he got his belly full. He was a little older than my normal newborns but he was also born a little early. Babies that are born before their due date are usually pretty sleepy up until the due date. Keep in mind if you are expecting a new baby you should contact your newborn photographer well before your baby is born. I always encourage my expecting moms to bring in their new bundles of joy between 4-10 days old for the newborn portrait session. Mr Maverick how could we not go straight for the Aviator hat and little airplane. Does his name not just make you think of the movie top gun. Oh wait am I giving away my age? Hmm I don’t even care I still love me some top gun. Shannon thank you so much for bringing your newest little man over to my home studio to be photographed. He is just a dream, I did not want him to leave. Congrats again to the proud Mom, Dad and 2 big brothers. Maverick is adorable.



Mommy and Me Mooresville Newborn Portrait Session

sweet hug love the black and white mommy and me portraits

The Mommy and me newborn portrait session from last week was so much fun. I blogged and sent out Facebook messages looking for a few newborn models. On a whim while setting up an appointment for Kari’s sweet little man K, I asked if she would be willing to model for me as well. I am so glad she agreed. She is just going to love these images of the two of them. Don’t you think? Thank you Kari for bringing sweet baby K to be photographed and thank you so much for also modeling for me! I just love to photograph new moms with their sweet newborns. I do not know why so many moms hesitate. You just cannot get this time in your baby’s life back. No one ever says I wish I had not had Mommy and me portraits made. If you love these images and know any moms-to-be send them my way. I am currently looking for maternity models and I am always happy to photograph mommy and me images during a newborn session too!

Sweet newborn baby H came to see me on friday morning. What a doll he was to work with. Even when he got frustrated he would fuss and go right back to sleep. Baby H was full of smiles for me on friday morning. Gosh it is so much fun for the parents when I can capture such great expressions. His momma is gonna enjoy him so much. I cannot wait to watch Baby boy H grow over the next year. Remember if you are interested in having your newborn baby’s portraits taken they are best done in the first two weeks.

Sweet Siblings

Baby P is on the blog again. We had a great newborn portrait session and a fabulous bonus when big sister agreed to join the fun. I just adore sweet sibling portrait sessions. With these sweet siblings so close in age it is really hard to get great images. I am always amazed with this sweet girl. Congratulations Mom and Dad I just love photographing your sweet babies!



Newborn Baby Boy

New little man

Sweet Mister P came in for his newborn portrait session and was just a dream to photograph. I can’t get over all his blond hair. I wanted to take him home with me ;) Thanks Barb & Andy for letting me photograph your sweet new little man.

Casting Call Model Newborn Baby One

Sweet Miss C was my first Casting Call baby. She was two weeks old the day I came to photograph her at her home. She was as adorable as they come. It took us a while to get her to sleep but it was worth the wait. Don’t you think? Such an angel with those gorgeous pink lips and perfect porcelain skin. I could just eat her up.

Newborn boy and family

Mr Landon was kind enough to bring his parents along to the newborn posing class I recently attended. They even dressed up to be photographed, which makes them rock stars in my book. Thanks guys. Little Landon was adorable and so content for Mom or Dad to hold him ;) I love to photograph new parents with their tiny babies. Getting them excited about dressing up so soon after a new baby arrives is a challenge but the pay off is always worth it.  Some of my favorite images are of the family surrounding baby at the newborn session. What do you guys think about these?

Baby Girl Carli

Sweet and so adorable, Miss Carli was a dream to work with at our recent Making Memories Newborn Posing Workshop. Such sweet expressions from her kiss to that angelic smile. Thanks again to Tracy at Memories by TLC for teaching us all your tips and tricks for photographing these sweet new babies. Remember if your looking for a newborn photographer be sure to contact them before your baby arrives. Newborn portraits like these are best photographed before 10 days old.
