Baby Connor | RALEIGH WAKE FOREST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Another sweet newborn to share with you today!  Baby Connor was nine days new on the day of his session.  He’s such a handsome, cute little guy!  A perfect angel for his session.  I think my favorites were the ones of his sweet little eyelashes and teeny tiny toes!  He’s just too perfect!

Baby Hanna | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Wow, what a busy few months this has turned out to be for this little business of mine!  I just finished up five sessions last week, and have another three this week.  I swear there is a serious baby boom in Raleigh in 2013!  I try to share each and every session on the blog so families can share their posts with friends and family.  And next up in my queue is Hanna, who was born back in early March.  I met her on day 13 of her life.  She is completely gorgeous!! Her Mommy requested lots of pink, which was pretty easy to deliver!  Here’s a few of sweet little Hanna!

Charlotte | RALEIGH DURHAM NEWBORN AND BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Thursday, April 18th, 2013

I have a bit of a scheduling update for those planning to book a session.  My month of April has gotten so over-loaded with sessions – which is good!  But I just realized that I’m also over-booked for May already.  So, I won’t be taking on any other sessions for the month of May.  My first available openings are in June, and I only have a few slots left.  So book soon if you’re due this summer or fall – I’m filling up!  I’ll also be cutting back on the number of ‘Older Baby’ (3 months to one year) sessions I take each month so I can allow room for more maternity and newborn sessions in my schedule, which is what I specialize in and what I love.  So, going forward, I’ll only be doing maternity and newborns, with the exception of the clients already booked, and those who purchase a Baby’s First Year package.  If I happen to have extra space, I’ll fit in older baby sessions here and there, but it probably won’t happen often.

Now that THAT’s out of the way, let’s focus on pretty Charlotte!!!  Sweet little Charlotte just turned one and her family met me out for her one-year portraits.  And I happily got some updated family photos for them as well.  Such a sweet, happy family.  They’re moving to Asheville this month, and I’m a little jealous because I love Asheville!  🙂

Tracee | RALEIGH DURHAM MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER

Monday, April 15th, 2013

I am home fresh from a trip to Asheville with my girlfriends!  We had so much fun, and even took some great portraits for a few people while we were in town (I’ll share those when I’ve finished editing them).  Now I feel refreshed and ready for work.  I hopped right back in with a newborn session this morning, and now I’m working on catching up on the blog!

Tracee is a mega gorgeous woman whom I met a few months ago for her maternity portraits at a beautiful location in Raleigh.  She quite simply rocked her session.  You can tell by the size of her heels that she didn’t let pregnancy slow her down.  Here are a couple photos from her maternity session!

Baby Graham | RALEIGH NC NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

Well, the weather in Raleigh is really warming up this week!  And all of the beautiful trees are in bloom outside – one of my favorite times of the year.  I had a little time off last week for spring break with my kids, and now I’m getting back to my picture-taking, editing, and blogging!

This is newborn Graham, whom I met at just 5 days old.  I can’t even tell you how much I enjoy having handsome baby boys in my studio.  Especially sweet, sleepy ones!  Graham’s Mommy came to me through a referral from an out of town photographer whom I really admire, so I was completely touched by the referral. 🙂  I had such a fun session with Graham – lots of set-ups and sweet poses.  He slept like a champ for me and made my job nice and easy.

Baby Evelyn | RALEIGH NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

My kids are on spring break this week and, by the grace of God, I’ve managed to also be on vacation with them this week!!  It’s really hard to plan that correctly as a newborn photographer – you just never know when these babies will arrive!  🙂  But it appears as though I’ve managed to be in the clear this week!  So excited!  My little men and I have been up to a lot of fun!  And I’m also hoping to continue to catch up on some of my blogging this week.  First up is sweet baby Evelyn!

Little Evelyn was 7 days old on the day of her newborn session.  I had spoken to her Mommy before the session and the only thing she said she wanted during the session was neutrals.  And THAT, I could deliver.  No shortage of cream blankets in this studio, if you hadn’t noticed.  🙂  So we stuck with the browns and creams, and some soft pinks.  Evelyn is a happy little baby, and her session went nice and smoothly.  Tons of happy, open-eyed shots, lots of close-ups of the toes and her sweet little face, and we even put her in the ‘nest’, as her Daddy called it.  I was blessed to have this sweet little girl in my studio for a few hours, and I love how her newborn photos came out!
