Alexander | Raleigh Wake Forest Newborn Baby Photographer

Monday, July 30th, 2012

Adorable little Alexander was nine days old for his photography debut.  He actually made me work a ton for these photos — he was bright eyed most of the morning that I was with him.  But after a lot of soothing he took a few cat naps!  He sure was cute and I completely enjoyed the time I was with him!

Alexander’s Daddy is a hockey fan, so we surprised him and incorporated a pair of hockey skates into the pictures.  I think they’re totally adorable!

Max and Mason | Raleigh Wake Forest Newborn Baby Twins Photographer

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

I have to apologize that the blog has been so quiet the past few weeks.  It’s been an incredibly busy (and hot) summer!  Sessions have been in full swing!  I’ll try to catch up on blogging over the next few weeks!

I was so incredibly excited to meet identical twins Max and Mason, born on the 4th of July.  They were SO SO tiny!  They each weighed in at a little less than five pounds at the time of our session.  They were a dream to photograph and just so incredibly precious!

Learning | Raleigh Wake Forest Newborn Baby Photographer

Friday, July 13th, 2012

I am personally the type of person who loves to learn, especially when it comes to things I’m passionate about.  Working in an industry where styles and trends are constantly changing, I made a decision some time ago to invest in my professional growth as much as I could.  Once or twice a year I’ve been traveling the country to be taught by the photography industry’s very best.  Last month I traveled to Omaha to meet the industry leaders in newborn photography.  They were amazing to watch and learn from and I came away with new tips and tricks to take my newborn photography to a whole new level.

As many of you know, earlier this year I decided to specialize in newborn and baby photography.  I moved away from weddings completely, and now only take a very limited number of family sessions.  Newborn photography is what speaks to me, and it’s what I strive to excel at.  I love everything about it.  And with my new knowledge, I hope to continue to provide beautiful portraits and snuggle with your beautiful babies!  Below is a sampling of some photos I took during my trip – I met three gorgeous brand new baby girls and there were some amazing set-ups!

Beau | Raleigh Wake Forest Newborn Baby Photographer

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

Sweet little Beau is the baby brother to my little friend Palmer.  He was 15 days old on the day of his session and soooo super laid back.  I just adore this family and am so excited they’re a part of my Baby’s First Year Plan so I get to see Beau grow up this year!

 

This next photo was made extra special by the antique scale.  Big brother Palmer was photographed in it as a newborn!

Jaden and Mason | Raleigh Wake Forest Newborn Baby Twins Photographer

Sunday, July 1st, 2012

Twin baby boys Jaden and Mason were a delight to meet and photograph.  Twins can often be a challenge to both get sleeping and posed, but these boys were absolutely wonderful.  I adored my morning spent with them!
