Over two decades ago, we began learning all the technicalities of photography.  Once that was achieved, we decided to “specialize” our art into portrait photography, which is so very different from other types of photography.  So we began studying all the details of portrait photography and it quickly led us to the conclusion that we must further specialize our art.

We decided years ago to specialize in newborn fine art photography, along with maternity and baby’s first year portraits.  The reason was simple, it is near and dear to our hearts. Do we photograph high school seniors, family, baby, and other types of photography…yes.  So, you may ask what does it mean to specialize in the maternity/baby photography arena …

This beautiful mommy-to-be scheduled a fun gender reveal session to announce whether they are having a baby boy or a baby girl.  After her ultrasound, she took the sealed results to the store and selected a boy and girl outfit.  She showed the results to the cashier and had the cashier place the gender specific outfit in the box and without peeking she traveled to this gorgeous outdoor location just outside of Greensboro, NC for the big reveal.  The weather almost got the best of us, but the thought of re-scheduling this session was unbearable as mom and dad were sooooooo excited to find out the big news!  Luckily, we were able to adjust the timing a bit and avoid the storm.

So, without further delay … help me welcome this BABY BOY as the newest upcoming addition to this beautiful soon to be family of three!

From the moment they opened the box, they couldn’t stop smiling.  They were completely over joyed … so excited to meet them again in a few months for a gorgeous custom styled maternity portrait session, followed by a newborn session to bring in the new year!gender reveal photography greensboro maternity photographer burlington ncPINIMAGEmaternity portrait photogrpahy winston salem nc melissa treen photography greensboroPINIMAGEgender reveal photos greensboro north carolina maternity portraits melissa treen photographyPINIMAGEcake smash photography greensboro ncPINIMAGE

This baby boy is so gorgeous!  He had amazing skin and skin tones … such a dream to edit!  He is such a good baby and cuddled up so perfectly in every prop we used throughout his custom styled newborn photo shoot.  Just around a week old and complete preciousness!

sweet slumbering new baby photography

Newborn photography has evolved into a world all it’s own today.  Those sweet, snugly little babies pictured sleeping so perfectly are the images that moms hold close to their hearts.  These images highlight the newness of this special season of life.

The opportunity to capture these newborn memories is best defined as the first ten days after birth.  True newborn moments pass quickly as baby’s sleep patterns and appearance change.  The key to scheduling your newborn portrait photography session is to schedule it early.  We accept a limited number of newborns per week, so most clients reserve their custom newborn photography session while still pregnant.

Ideally, during the 2nd trimester of pregnancy is an optimal time to contact us as it allows plenty of time to place you on our schedule.  Once you get closer to your due date, simply touch base with us to let us know of any plans such as inducement or a planned C-section.  Once you deliver, contact us within 48 hours to finalize your session date.  It’s easy & simply to get started, just email us & we will instruct you on how to reserve your session.

As I have scrolled through social media today, there have been so any back-to-school photos today of friends and family.  I enjoy seeing all the families and how the children have grown so much.  It is especially heart warming to see those that are far away on social media, as we don’t get to see as often in person.  It reminds me of how fleeting time truly is … these babies grow up so fast!  I can still remember those first days of kindergarten and now I have one in college and one that started high school this year!

Yes, I said high school … I am still trying to wrap my brain around the fact that my youngest is in high school.  This weekend, he was working on a school project … “The story of his life…”  Wow, did that ever bring this mommy to tears.  The transition to high school this year has been a unique one … I am finding it hard to accept where are here, at this place in life, where he is old enough to be in high school.  I know it’s transitional, and it will get easier to accept at some point, but I think it just reminds me that we are getting closer to the day he graduates and goes to college and letting go is so hard…

As I watched his final edit of the story of his life movie, I realized one thing … he has had a good life.  Not a perfect, flawless life with perfect flawless parents, but a good life centered around Christ and the grace He has provided for our family.  I am so grateful to say he has had a good life, it is a blessing and a luxury many do not share.  I took a moment to remind him of his blessings and then a moment to thank God for all He has done for our family.  Perspective … sometimes it is found in the most unusual places, like a high school project, but it is priceless and precious to be reminded all we have to be thankful for in this life.

Below is one of our little baby portrait planners, perfectly posed with teddy bear, ready for a tea party!  Isn’t she amazing!!!  :)
