Newborn Baby Boy Photo Session: Finley

I had the privilege of taking my nephew's newborn photos recently! This is my brother and his family's last baby. They have been blessed with two daughters and now a son! Finley is our 16th niece/nephew between both our families. We are pretty fortunate to have such wonderful families. We love being auntie and uncle to these sweet littles!

We did a newborn session at their home including family, siblings and photos of Finley by himself. Part of the day at Finley's newborn session was also spent making a video about doing your own photos versus hiring a professional portrait artist. 

We had fun making the movie (there's even a gag reel at the end to prove it!) and you can watch it here: https://kristiwilliamsphotography.com/blog/diy-vs-portrait-artist

Welcome to the world, little mister Finley!

Welcome, baby Nolan!

This was such a special session for us! Kristi has photographed this sweet family's birthday, maternity and newborn sessions for some of the older kids and now she got to photograph their last addition to their family, baby Nolan!

We really like being able to do newborn photography in your home and we know you do too! We always start with the family and sibling photos first because, let's be real - siblings (and dad) are done after awhile. And since our professional newborn photo sessions can take up to 3 hours, they can go play while we finish up with baby's photos. 

Nolan is so cute and we couldn't help but notice, his own little person. Having done his older brother's newborn photos as well, we talked about how these two boys really look so different even as babies from each other. We can't wait to see him grow up!

Welcome to the world, little mister Nolan!

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!

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!
