Prince William

This mama emailed me from the hospital, which I totally love! Prince William, a nickname that is quickly catching on, was 9 days old when we did his session. He slept the entire time, even after pooing on mom’s shirt! I love newborns. I can’t over-stress this: schedule your newborn session within the first two weeks of life. Preferably, contact me before your baby is due to assure availability. I will then “pencil you in” and we will arrange a specific time for your session after the baby is born. Again, the first few days of life are the prime time!


First Birthday Portraits!

Look who just turned one! I first met Rebecca as a newborn. I was attending a VBAC/c-section support group. Surrounded by moms looking forward to a VBAC experience with their next child, Julie was the only mama there who could say “I’ve done it and here’s my beautiful baby to show for and you can do it to!” VBAC moms rock! And I know I’ve said this before, but it really is fun to see the babies grow! Rebecca is soooo adorable.

Julie ordered the custom onesie, the tutu, and the matching hair flower from the TutieCutieBoutique etsy shop. I love the colors and mom & brother’s coordinating shirts. We kept trying to get Rebecca to stand for us, but she’d much rather crawl and she was fast!!! (She did finally stand and walk for us at the end of the session) Happy First Birthday, Rebecca!

Love it.

And then, right at the end of the session, there was this absolutely beautiful moment between Julie and her son.

Doesn’t it take your breath away?
