Motherhood … it has been one of my life’s greatest experiences.   I am in complete awe that God chose me to be a mom to my two children…that He thought I was worthy of this honor.  There are always days when I question if I am doing enough or doing everything right, but never a day I don’t try to do my best by them.

Motherhood is a life-altering event.  It changes you in so many ways.  Motherhood encompasses so much love, emotion, strength and goodness…this is one reason I adore maternity portrait sessions like the one below so much … they highlight mom’s beauty, strength, love and adoration for her baby.

Motherhood, is an amazing journey … I have said it a thousand times, but it is so true.  There is something unexplainably overwhelming when you hold your precious baby in your hands after carrying that little one for 40 long weeks, all the while dreaming … imagining and wondering who he will look like, whose personality traits he will have, how big he will be, who he will take after, how much hair he will have, what color his eyes will be, and all the other 5000 thoughts that run through the mind of a mom-to-be.

This moment, the moment of fruition, when all the wait and wondering are over … this is the moment to remember … this is motherhood in all of it’s glory … the wait, the journey of pregnancy, the labor … they are all over and every single second of it was completely worth it because this little boy will call you mommy.

Milestones … they are one of our favorite things to capture because they are so, so fun!  At 9 months old, baby is sitting well and is so full of personality!  Mom gave him a pair of sunglasses and they were one of his favorite toys we played with during the photo shoot!

Those big blue eyes, that sweet smile, and all those cuddles throughout the session made it hard to say goodbye when this little love left the studio!  Have I mentioned lately, I have the best job ever!  🙂

So today we are sharing a little secret with you … newborn mini sessions.  I say they are secret because they are something new we are offering and we really haven’t advertised them much at all.  Honestly, the idea of a newborn “mini” session was something I was very unsure of at first … due to the timeframe.  Our normal newborn portrait session lasts between 2-4 hours, so the thought of a significantly shorter mini session for newborns was something I had to wrap my brain around a bit.

For those who know me well, I am extremely analytical … I think about every detail.  This is something that benefits much of my work, as details are so important in photography.  However, I had to “plan” out my idea of a mini session and prove (to myself) it would work.  And I am so happy to say not only did it work, it has worked beautifully … with every newborn mini session we have done so far!

We still offer traditional newborn portrait sessions, which are part of Baby Portrait Plan, so both of those options are still available.  Nothing will change with those, they will remain 2-4 hours sessions, producing a huge variety and quantity of images for selection.  With traditional newborn sessions, there are no limits to what we produce…we strive to capture a massive quantity of images with baby, mom and dad and siblings in multiple settings and styles.

Our newborn mini session will offer an affordable option for those who wish to capture a limited number of portraits within a shorter timeframe.  These sessions include digital images and are delivered to you as soon as they have been edited…quick and easy! The result is beautiful newborn portraits … here are a few examples (we captured many more) from a recent newborn mini session …

When researching the option of providing newborn mini sessions, I discovered what we consider a “mini” session, many other photographers consider a full session… and what we consider a “full” traditional session, others may not be offering at all.  SO, by us offering newborn mini sessions, we are actually offering an option more comparable to what others offer.  Feel free to contact us to help determine which type of newborn portrait session best meets your needs.

It has been a weekend of babies … from gorgeous maternity portraits, to twin one year old babies to newborn photography … things have been hopping at Melissa Treen Photography!  And while weather here has been beautiful, that is not the case back home, in Tampa.  In between clients I have been glued to the news, watching the progression of Hurricane Irma and texting/calling friends and family back home.

After growing up and living in Tampa for 30 years, this hurricane is the type we always feared … a direct hit, category 4/5 with storm surge into Tampa Bay.  We weathered many storms, thunderstorms and even hurricanes while in Tampa, but none like what has been described this weekend.  It is so hard to be away from family during times like this, my heart is with them all and we just keep praying.

And it looks like our prayers have been working to some degree…it looks like Irma is wearing down and Tampa will experience a weaker version of this monster storm when it arrives later tonight.  They aren’t out of the woods yet, and storm surge is always a concern, but hopefully much less damage than anticipated for the area.  Please continue to pray for Tampa, and all of Florida as this storm is massive.

Now, to share a little sunshine … at just a week old … so gorgeous …
