Lewis Newborn shoot

Lewis newborn shoot was a great homecoming for me this summer.  My brother and sister in law welcomed their adorable baby boy back in June.  I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Lewis and do a newborn shoot.  They had been waiting for this moment for so long.  Both had wanted to grow their family for many years.  Infertility is a real thing.  It shouldn’t be a taboo subject.  It is so important to know that you are not alone when you are trying to do everything in your power to have a baby.  So many couples go through great lengths to become parents.  Many times it is a long hard road.  That road can be full of fear and many frustrations.  It can also be full of happiness and wonderful moments.  Im sure there were many times where they wanted to throw in the towel and give up but, they didn’t.  They pushed through it and in the end they had an amazing beautiful baby boy.  Sometimes the obstacles of creating this miracle inside of us really pushes us to our max as a human being.  Many times we are pushed to our max and its hard to “keep our eye on the prize”.  For some, pregnancy is really hard.  For others, pregnancy is a breeze.  We make a birth plan, and have all these expectations of how we want our pregnancy and labor and delivery to go.  And, in the end, we as parents all want the same thing: a healthy baby.

Meet my adorable nephew Lewis.  He is a love.  Full of smiles and coos.  He looks so much like both of his parents.  He has the perfect mixture of them both. He didn’t love his newborn session, but I was able to work my magic and get some great pictures of Lewis none the less.  😉

I do have to say though, even though he didn’t love the whole session, Lewis newborn shoot went really well and I was still able to capture all those tender moments for my brother and sister in law.

Tiffany and Kinsley Mommy and Me

Tiffany and Kinsley came to see me right before I moved from Mississippi to New Jersey.  I love when other photographers contact me to do a session for them.  It really speaks loud and fills you with lots of warm happy feelings.  Tiffany and her hubs moved to the gulf coast with Kinsley from Hawaii.  Christian is in the military so they get new orders every so often to live somewhere else.  Luckily for me, they moved to the gulf coast.  I actually met Tiffany through a Facebook group of local photographers in that area.  In an industry that can sometimes be cut throat, its important to have a local group for advice and support.  This industry does not always have to be cut throat.  It is actually an industry full of amazingly talented women and men.  It is an industry full of artistic vision and as artists, our feelings tend to show up in our work.  This is a good thing, especially since photography is meant to evoke emotion from the viewer.

When we spoke about doing a mommy and me session, I was so excited when Tiffany told me she wanted to incorporate nursing images and a milk bath.  Y’all already know Im a huge advocate for nursing, but I want you to know that I support all ways of feeding a baby whether it be via breast bottle or other forms.  At the end of the day, we are all going for the same goal, to bring up a healthy happy baby.

If you aren’t sure about milk baths let me assure you, they are amazing.  We put water in the tub and add milk, its so good for the skin too.  From there we put things in like flowers or leaves.  It is really up to our creative minds to add in whatever we want.  The water is warm too so you won’t be cold.  We can wrap fabric around you or you can wear a dress or be nude.  Everything is tastefully done to achieve a fine art print.  Kids also love it…I mean most kids love water and the flowers are like a built in toy.

Mommy and Me sessions are all about the chemistry between a mommy and her baby/babies.  It’s the embraces, tickles and smiles that I strive to capture for you.  As moms, we are generally on the other side of the camera taking pictures and it is so important to be IN pictures with our kids.  You can see from these images what an array you will get in your gallery and honestly, who wouldn’t want to put these beauties up on a wall?

To schedule a mommy and me photo shoot, contact me.

Tiffany’s Floral Kimono was from American Eagle.

The Lace dress worn in the milk bath is from Leah Maria Couture.

Owen’s Newborn Images

These are my Owen’s newborn images.  I am having a rather nostalgic moment.  My third bubs is about to be 1.  ONE!  I keep asking how in the heck did a year come and go already?  It is almost like this year flew by my nose.  I knew when I was pregnant with him last year that I was going to do Owen’s newborn images.  I was so happy that I was able to do them.  I captured every single essence of his newborn squishy phase that I wanted.  He was so big and fat, weighing in at a whopping 11 lbs and 2 oz.  Not only was he fat, but he was a huge snuggler.  I swear he ate all the time too…but he was a newborn and we forget so quickly how much they eat in those early days.  Luckily I had some help with my nursling.  We had some issues at first.  It was painful.  Im not going to lie, the first week of him nursing was like super painful.  We had a lot to work out.  Owen and I were establishing a relationship.  We literally just met earth side and here I am thinking that nursing will be a breeze.  It isn’t, it is hard.  Nursing is hard and sometimes frustrating and painful.  This is where good help and advice comes in handy.  If you are nursing your newborn and you are having issues, please contact your local lactation consultant.  They will help you and advise you to do things that will increase your likely hood to nurse your baby with success.  If you  are in NJ contact your local la leche league or you can also use Keystone Lactation Services.  They helped my sister in law out tremendously.  Please don’t be afraid to ask for help, sometimes in order to make it a successful nursing journey you need a second set of eyes.  As new moms we are constantly worried about so many things and help is amazing for us.  I always say those first few weeks are the toughest with a new baby, there is always so much going on.  You can make it through them!  I promise.  And once you do and look back you will be like me….wondering where in the world did the months go!?

Schedule your newborn session today.  Contact me here.

I must give a shout out to my amazing vendors.  Newborn reindeer bonnet is from: Oh so fleeting!

    These are adorable! I especially love the hands & feet pose. As the years go by (too quickly), parents forget the sweet moments that melted our hearts. You’ve captured it perfectly!ReplyCancel

Janelle’s family session

I love to photograph families and their extended families.  Family goes beyond right?..we have mom, dad, brother, sister etc. What about the grand parents?  They like to be in pictures too.  Not only that but, its nice to have them in our family images as well.  Everyone loves to look back through the images and see that their grand parents were able to partake in a session.  I loved that about Janelle’s family session.  Actually, there were several things that I loved about their family session but I promise Ill get to those later.

She had her mom’s parents come to the session, along with her mom and brother. We had so much fun photographing them at the National Seashore in Ocean Springs MS.  We braved the hot humid weather and met up to have their session.  Her son and daughter did amazing!  I even snapped a few images of the grand babies with their grandma and the great grands.  Those images will be special for many many years.

Parents sometimes get frustrated with their own children during their sessions.  Photographers are looking through a viewfinder at a different world.  We see eye contact, facial gestures, the flow of the breeze through hair.  Not all images need to have a “cheesing” child in them.  Sometimes it is the serious expressions that tell us a thousand tales.  Yes, a smile is nice.  No, kids do not always want to smile.  Yes, this is totally ok.  Photographers just roll with it.  We are capturing moments for our clients.  Trust us, we are artists. 😉

Janelle’s photo shoot was really awesome.  Like myself, she believes in extended breastfeeding, so of course we took some gorgeous images of her and her sweet daughter nursing.  There is no time like those moments when you are nursing your little one.  They are only so little for such a short period of time.  Sometimes it is extremely hard to embrace the parenting realities when our children are so small.  They need us so much.  We are their first everything.  We become so much to them, their mother, father, nurse, refferee, pacifier, teacher, friend, helper, caregiver, and the list continues.  It is exhausting.  Before I ever considered having children, someone once told me, “Parenting, it is the hardest job you will ever love.” My gosh they were so right.

If you are interested in more information regarding breastfeeding, your local La Leche League is always a great place to start.  For information on extended breast feeding, LLL is a great resource along with this page.   If you live in New Jersey, here is a list of LLL groups within the state.  And if you live in Pennsylvania, here are the LLL groups.
