Premie Newborn Photo Session

Baby Neil was born 2 month pre-mature and so even though mom and dad wanted to get newborn photos, he was in the NICU past the time frame we normally give our newborn families of 5-18 days after they are born for newborn pictures. 

This is where premie babies are a little different in regard to their newborn session. I always do newborn photos up to a month after their original due date. Because they are really a newborn for so much longer than other newborns since they came out a little early. 

Neil was actually 3 months old here for his newborn photo session at our studio in downtown Colorado Springs. We got him to sleep no problem and were able to get some great awake and alert plus sleeping baby photos! Which we think is the best of both!

We were so honored to capture this precious new family's first professional family photo and baby Neil's first baby pictures! And a special capture for mom - she requested him on her shoulder as that's how she always carries him around the house. LOVE it!

Gatlin's Baby Story

We LOVE baby stories! From maternity photos to newborn photos, we love to document your baby's story of their brand new life. It starts with the pregnancy photos - their first home! Then we really love showing your family going from 2 to 3 or 3 to 4 or more! 

This family went from a family of 3 to a family of 4 with the arrival of baby brother Gatlin! Our favorite part is showing that family of three photo right before the family of four photo below. Go ahead, stop, look a minute and really let it sink in that this new little baby boy made up the next member of this family. Life will never be the same!

His big sister is sooo proud to be a big sister! She loves her baby brother and was so good snuggling and loving on him. We love all the dynamics in a family as you grow your families! The sibling bonds, the mommy and son bonds, the daddy and son bonds. LOVE those sweet moments of showing this amazing new little creation being welcomed into your family!

Welcome to the world, little mister Gatlin!

Colorado Springs Winter Family Photos

We are so fortunate to live in a state as beautiful as Colorado and with great weather most of the time! It's been a warm winter and even though we know it's not good for the lack of moisture, we have been loving the outdoor winter photography sessions we have had.

This family was just so fun to photograph! The kiddos are old pros at being in front of a camera and as soon as the camera went up, they were ready with their smiles. But that doesn't mean they aren't normal siblings who like to tease each other. So we had to get a few fun ones with them playing around as well!

Teasing aside, we love to photograph families who share such a beautiful bond. Their love for each other is there in every hug, snuggle, smile and joyful jump!

Naomi's Maternity & Newborn Photo Story

Happy 1st Day of Spring! We thought it was fitting to share Naomi's newborn photo story on the first day of spring because she looks like a little spring princess in all the flower crowns we put on her!

Naomi's parents and her big brother doggie Rocky were so excited as they waited to meet Naomi. We had so much fun (even though it was freezing) taking their maternity pictures in front of Garden of the Gods. Colorado is so beautiful. This family is beautiful. To put this adorable family in that scenery is like the cherry on a sundae!

Little miss Naomi was born at only 6 lbs, 12 oz with curly hair and so little bitty that she fit all the way inside our yellow bucket at her newborn session! It's was so great to take the newborn photos at Naomi's home. It was comfortable for everyone and made great memories! We love incorporating family pictures in the newborn photo session. That includes ALL family - big brother Rocky and grandma who was visiting!

We had fun matching mom and daughter in the same teal headband and fabric! Her mom during the maternity session and then once Naomi was here we matched her to mom at her newborn session.

How sweet is little miss Naomi in all her newborn photos? That hair! Those sweet little bitty pink lips and toes with all those rolls. She is just cute in every photo! Precious little sweetheart. We loved photographing Naomi's story!
