Frenchtown NJ Newborn Picture Session

Newborn Baby Sydney came to see me for her newborn picture session at my Frenchtown, NJ studio a few weeks ago.  She was the perfect newborn baby model.  When I met baby Sydney I couldn’t get over her hair, it was so dark and long!  It always amazes me how much newborns differ with how much or how little hair they are born with.  Some newborn clients come and have full heads of dark fluffy hair and others come with almost none.  I love how different and unique each newborn baby is when they come to Budding Roses Photography Studio.

Sydney was a rock star for her session.  She did all the poses gracefully and I even managed to get prop shots and a mommy picture too.  I always encourage my clients to get in the pictures with their newborn babies.  Often times parents are the ones taking the pictures and we are rarely seen in the images with our children.  As a mom myself, I really want my clients to have pictures of themselves with their babies.  Parent pictures are simple  and laid back too, nothing too fancy since those first few weeks of your newborns life, it is an exhausting time.

Safety is always important to me at my newborn photo shoots.  For one of my favorite poses, the froggy, I will generally ask mom or dad to help me spot their baby.  Parents always love this because they are able to participate with the photo shoot and they see how the magic is then made.  Froggy pose is always made up of a composite of two images taken of the same pose.  My newborn baby clients are never left to hold themselves up at any given time during their photo shoot they are always safely handled.

During your newborn photo shoot at my studio in Frenchtown, NJ located in Hunterdon County, you will have time to relax while I photograph your sweet newborn. You can catch up on social media, watch netflix or just watch me as I photograph your baby in props and on the beanbag.  After your photo session, you can take a walk around Frenchtown which offers multiple places to dine like The Frenchtown Inn, grab some coffee at Early Bird Espresso or stop in some of the local shops like Dalla Terra, The Book Garden and Modern Love.  Frenchtown has so much to offer to tourists and I am so happy to have a studio here.

If you are an expecting mom in Hunterdon, Somerset, Warren Essex or Mercer Counties in New Jersey and are looking for newborn photos, maternity photos or family photos please contact me, I would love to work with you.

Hospital Pictures, Fresh 48 Hunterdon County NJ

Hospital pictures are so special for families.  Hunterdon Medical Center in Flemington NJ no longer offers photography for new families so I offer Fresh 48 sessions to my clients.  Fresh 48 sessions are very laid back and short, almost like a mini session.  Once you have your baby at the Hunterdon Medical Center in Flemington, (or any hospital in NJ) I come in within 48 hours of your sweet baby’s birthday and capture those first few days of raw emotion.  A newborn baby changes so quickly.  The day they are born they look one way and then a few days later they look totally different.  That is why I encourage families to capture these moments, the reality is that there is no pause button for us 🙂 .

When we have a baby, life gets sent to fast forward it feels like.  A newborn baby brings so many new things to our lives.  A new space is filled in our hearts for this tiny being that we are meeting earth side for the first time.  Siblings get promoted to big sister or big brother status and love is shared all around.  With a newborn baby, you are establishing a new relationship.  There are lots of firsts and getting to know each other: First bath, First kiss, First hug, First time nursing, first time being held and the list goes on and on.  Even though as a parent we have experienced these firsts before with our other children in some cases or as a first time parent your newborn baby is experiencing life outside of the womb in a brand new way, everything is “new and shiny” to him or her.

Fresh 48 sessions always fill my heart to see and capture all these “firsts” for families.  I am so happy that my clients choose me to capture their lives for them and it is a great honor to do so.

If you are an expectant mommy in Hunterdon County, NJ and would like more information on a fresh 48 session, please contact me for more information.

New Jersey Maternity Photos

This expecting New Jersey family had their maternity photos done a few weeks ago.  Kristin’s maternity session was so much fun! She and her husband are expecting a rainbow baby in just a few short weeks.  When Kristin contacted me to do her maternity pictures and told me about her rainbow baby, I knew that I needed to get something to incorporate a rainbow in a fun way.  My girl over at Floral and Evergreen totally came through for me on this after I called her.  I wanted a floral crown, but nothing too gaudy and over the top.  I also needed it to be versatile so that I could use it as a floral crown or as a sash for my maternity gowns in my client closet.  As you will see below in these maternity pictures, the crown is amazing!

For this maternity session, we met at a private farm and took pictures up by the barn and then along the trail that leads back to the house.  My sister and her fiancé live on this land and it is privately farmed and they let me come and photograph families and maternity clients there.  The backdrop is gorgeous, which is normal for New Jersey.  There are rolling hills, trees and lots of greenery.  Where they live there is a creek that runs through the farm and it is a very chilly 55 degrees but, that didn’t stop Kristin from getting in and getting her feet wet.  (I promise she wasn’t in there long enough and we had open communication throughout those images.)

Once we finished her maternity pictures at this New Jersey farm, we went back to their house and got their dogs because, fur-babies!!  We had so much fun photographing the dogs too.  I am really excited to share these maternity images with you.  All pictures were taken in Warren County, New Jersey and we literally finished as the rain began to fall.  The dogs, Nina, Murdock and Maggie were so funny during their portion of the pictures.  Maggie just kept barking…but I really think she was talking to me, and Nina was the perfect model all the while Murdock stayed pretty close to his momma and new baby sibling to be.

If you are looking for a maternity photographer in New Jersey, please contact me, I would love to work with you and your growing family.  I work very close with my clients to ensure that they are getting exactly what they are looking for.  We talk in depth over location, clothing choices, gown choices and what you want to do with your images.

HMC NJ newborn pictures

I love when I get that phone call that my clients are in labor.  It means that within the next few days, I get to go and photograph those first amazing hours as a new family.   HMC in NJ doesn’t offer newborn pictures anymore, so I love that I can offer this service to all of my clients.  Fresh 48 photography sessions are held at the hospital you deliver at.  For baby Shea’s session, I went to HMC, Hunterdon Medical Center, in Flemington NJ.

I love the maternity ward there.  The nurses are always helpful when Im signing in.  Its always busy with families becoming new families or bigger families.  Jess and Tom welcomed baby Shea into the world on Friday and I went yesterday morning to photograph her baby freshness.  She has cheeks for days and she’s adorable!  I am so blessed to have crossed paths with this family.  It is always amazing when clients turn into friends.  They shared Shea’s birth story with me and we shared tears and laughs over this new bundle of joy.

Fresh 48 Sessions are different from newborn sessions because during a fresh 48, nothing is really posed.  It is more about the candid and raw moments of welcoming a new baby into your life.  It is the story of learning who this baby is, counting each wrinkle of their new baby toes, taking in the new baby smell and baby snuggles, lots and lots of baby snuggles.

If you missed Jessica’s maternity photoshoot at her farm in Warren County, New Jersey, take a look at it here.  It was pretty epic and we had so much fun during that session.

I can’t wait to photograph newborn Shea’s baby pictures next week, there will be a lot of cuteness and posed baby adorableness for that session.

If you are an expectant mommy in the Hunterdon County, Warren County, or Somerset County areas of New Jersey and are looking for a maternity photographer, newborn photographer or family photographer, Contact me! I would love to capture these amazing moments for you.

NJ Senior Photo Shoot

We had so much fun at this NJ senior Photo shoot in Hunterdon County!  Spring has finally arrived here in New Jersey and even though when we did this Senior Photo Shoot it was super cold and snowy out, we are welcoming spring with open arms!  So, despite the cold during our NJ winter, we still went out and took some amazing Senior Pictures in Hunterdon County, NJ.  Are you a senior in high school? Great, let’s get a session booked and have an amazing time taking your photos for your senior year!

Sarah was an amazing trooper.  For her senior portraits, we decided to do pictures inside and outside as well.  We were lucky and a few days prior to her session, it snowed a little bit. This High School Senior nailed her senior picture session with Budding Roses Photography.  She picked out some really adorable outfits and even braved standing in the freezing cold in her prom dress!

This senior picture session makes me so excited for upcoming High School Senior Photo Shoots.  Hunterdon County NJ offers so many gorgeous areas to hold a photo shoot in and Spring will not disappoint us this year with amazing flowers and greenery that will all be soon blooming.

During a Senior photo shoot, my senior clients will bring their own wardrobe and change multiple times.  Sarah is best friends with Danielle, and Danielle’s parents own The Frenchtown Inn in Frenchtown, NJ so we had a huge fun building to take advantage of for her senior pictures.  If you have not been to this amazing Delaware Valley River Town, you need to put it on your list.  Frenchtown, NJ is adorable.  There are multiple restaurants and many cool shops to visit. It is a great town for families too.

If you are looking to have your Senior Pictures taken please Contact me to book your session now.
