We met this this sweet family under a canopy of willows and magic was captured!  So many gorgeous images from this portrait session to share, but in honor of Mother’s Day weekend, we will begin with this one.

As I was editing, I came across this image and it instantly became a favorite.  It was not posed, but yet it was perfect.  It captures the fun, happy and sweet relationship between mom and son.  It demonstrates the love and joy mom has in her heart for her son, and highlights how much this little boy loves his mommy.

This is motherhood … the love, the joy, the emotion, the beauty, the relationship, the bond between mother and child … and it is a special blessing in life.

Moms, hold your babies close whether they are 6 months, 6 years, 16 or older.  Shower them with love, you brought them into this world and you are their world … enjoy every moment of motherhood.

I know I have said this many times, but baby’s first year seems to happen in the blink of an eye!  Wasn’t it just yesterday I was holding his baby girl in my arms, styling her custom newborn photo shoot?  I remember how sweet she was throughout the session, as she slept like a little princess…the shades of pink and gray we coordinated in her props and accessories, and how precious her mommy was…like a ray of sunshine…and so in love with her baby girl!

These moments go so quickly, and thankfully we have been blessed to watch this little one grow up in front of our camera over the past year, as a Baby Portrait Planner.  We have been capturing her milestones all the year long, and she is precious!  Here’s a peek from her one year birthday photo shoot…I chose this as the first preview because I adore how we can see her little teeth!  🙂

Have a baby turning one?  It’s a huge milestone!  Allow us to capture beautiful birthday portraits for your baby, we custom style every portrait session and even coordinate details for baby’s cake smash!


So many options are available for photography of your new baby.  From hospital photos to lifestyle photography to custom styled portraits, the choices are plentiful.  So how do you decide what the best option is for your family?

Hospital photos – All hospitals offer photo options of baby during your stay.  What to expect … quick photos of your baby in the hospital setting from the designated photography group for your hospital of choice.

Lifestyle portrait photography – This type of photo shoot is performed by a custom photographer (like us), and is performed in your home, within the first weeks after delivery.  What to expect … candid, natural (and possibly a few posed) images of baby in their element, utilizing natural light areas of your home. Photos may include:  parents with baby, baby, siblings with baby, nursery and decor, etc…

Custom styled newborn portraits – This is our most requested type of portrait session. It includes a custom styled studio photo shoot, with coordinated props and accessories from our vast supply of the finest goodies.  We provide all the wardrobe and accessories throughout the session.  This type of portrait session includes a longer timeframe, as we are working with keeping baby comfy & sleepy.  We produce a large variety of images, including baby, parents and siblings, if desired.  Amazing posed parent portraits are captured, as well as sweet sibling images and breath-taking baby photography.

We have many clients that chose to do a few hospital photos and schedule a custom styled newborn portrait session, as they offer completely different  types of images.  We have also had clients select a lifestyle session for family and siblings and a cusotm style dportrait session just for baby.  So, the options are endless.

Our personal favorite is our custom styled portrait sessions, as they provide the opportunity to focus on highlighting the newness of baby, tiny details, fingers, toes, eyelashes, hair, facial features, etc… and they are performed in an organic and artistic way, producing high quality fine art images for your walls, albums and prints.

Now to share a favorite from a recent custom styled newborn portrait session …

One week new and completely snuggled in, this little love slept like a dream throughout his entire custom styled portrait session!  We tried a brand new wrap color on him, olive green and he looked amazing in this color … definitely a new favorite!  🙂
