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:

Welcome to the world, little mister Finley!

Twin Newborn Baby Session

These twins were born pre-mature by 2 months. So by the time I photographed them at 4 months, they were really like 2 month old babies still since they were newborns for so long. We decided to do this as a newborn session so we worked on getting them to sleep for some of the portraits. Aren't they so adorable? They are the second set of twins in this sweet family! You can see all the siblings in the first photo below. They are so cute in their little pajamas!!


welcome to the world, Kendall!

Kendall's parents didn't want to miss out on getting those cute newborn photos of their little lady but they were worried they had missed the window for them since she was 4 weeks old when they contacted us.

We have no problem doing newborn sessions later than 2 weeks old! Kristi has even done a 4 month old newborn session when the baby was born premature. It does limit flexibility and you do have to wait for the baby to pass out asleep. But when you do, it's perfect as you can see with Kendall's portraits here!

We always ask the level of skin retouching you want for your baby. Kendall's parents love the little red V on her forehead so we kept it there. It's so sweet and won't last very long but they love it while it's here as it's part of her!

Caelan's newborn photography session

We loved capturing Caelan's story from maternity, birth to his newborn session below! 

He is so adorable in everything we put him in. It was such a pleasure photographing Caelan and his mom and dad! We love all the sweet portraits we captured. Showing this little feet, lips, hands, and face - already different as he grows up. Newborns are only newborns for the first few weeks of their lives. It goes so fast!
