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!


Waiting for baby Caelan

Kristi had the honor to capture Caelan's entry into this world from his parents' maternity session to his birth and then finishing up with some adorable newborn portraits.

This is the beginning of his story. His parents maternity session - as they waited with excitement to meet their little man! It was around the sunflower field time of year here in Colorado Springs (August-September). So we had some fun in the sunflowers!

Kristi made an flower crown of the sunflowers for mom to wear and it turned out so beautiful on her! As Kristi is also known for, she took a cream piece of fabric and created a dress on mom as she stood there. It's all about showing off that cute bump!

Meet Moira and Jeremiah. I met them last year volunteering for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep during a beautiful but difficult time in their lives. They joyously welcomed their first son, Ronan, in to this world but he was only able to stay for a few weeks. I remember thinking when I met them the first time, how happy they were to be together with Ronan for even the shortest time they were given. After the hospital, Ronan (aka little fighter) was able to go home on hospice until he passed away. I was truly honored that Moira called and asked me to take his newborn photos. So when Moira posted that they were expecting their second son this year, I knew I wanted to take these photos for them. No matter the time we have with each other on earth, photos are so important. They are all that we are left with.

We included memories of Ronan throughout the maternity and newborn photos and also to celebrate this new life - his little brother. A rainbow baby as they are called. "After every storm, there is a rainbow." And as the little shirt says, Hand picked for earth by my brother in heaven.
