Welcome baby Everly!! Any day I get to work with a newborn is a good day & today was a very good day. I spent my afternoon getting my baby fix with this adorable little girl and her precious family.  I mean have you ever seen a baby in a turban?  Me neither, but it doesn’t get much cuter!  Her big brother was so excited to be able hold his “baby sister” and how about that bow tie?  Thank you so much for trusting me to document this special time in your life.

Well, I’m batting zero this summer for birth photography… My first baby decided to come on his own and his Mom birthed him in the mini-van… No worries, I had another birth coming up mid-August.  I’d warned the Mom that I would be in Costa Rica until the very beginning of August, but it shouldn’t be a problem…unless the baby comes nearly 2 weeks early and super fast, which she did!!  Baby Olivia was in a hurry to join us – but at least she waited until they got to the hospital.

But all’s well that ends well and I got to meet up with Olivia and her fabulous family a week later for a beautiful newborn session!  It was such a treat for me to see her older sister – the last time I’d seen her was when she was a few hours old (I made it to her birth).  A funny story, right after I got to their home, I was pulling up a large window blind for more light and inadvertently pulled it off the wall (*sorry*)…which upset Mila to no end…she must have walked by 50 times, pointed at the blinds and said “you broke that!” ~hanging my head in shame~

Thank you so much for trusting me with these images!

Really, Mila tried to steal the show – she nearly did it too with her yoga poses…I mean check those out, they are perfect!  I know tons of spandexed women who would die for that downward facing dog!!

This baby right here…he gave us all a run for our money!!  Starting with the fact that he was nearly 2 weeks overdue!  His mom said she was one day shy of being pregnant 10 months!!  Then when he decided to join us here earth side – he couldn’t wait any longer and was born on the WAY to the hospital!  Born in the minivan!  Two pushes according to his mother!  Luckily, everything went the way it was suppose to and he’s here and couldn’t be healthier!!  Unfortunately, though I wasn’t able to greet him until about 90 minutes later…  Nonetheless, I still love the images we captured – meeting his tribe ~ sister, brother, grandparents and aunt.  Welcome Baby Carter!!  You are so loved and we are so glad you are here!

Sweet baby Aaron joined his family a few weeks ago & boy is his sister proud!  She would not let “her baby” out of her sight!  Thanks to Aaron’s adventurous parents we had a good time playing around with him in the yard and in his mailbox…special delivery!!  That’s what happens when you’re the 2nd child… 😉  I really enjoyed myself last week and can’t thank you enough for letting me come into your day and capture Aaron’s first days.

Such a treat for me to photograph this precious new baby girl! Only 6 days old & the perfect model! Seriously, a dream to work with, now only if she would only let her Mama & Daddy dream a little at night…  I can’t wait to watch this little girl grow up – she’s got a lot to give to this world!  I only hope she has as much spunk as her big brother does!  Welcome to our world Baby Lydia!!

Newborns…something magical about them!! Especially your first! Not that the 2nd, 3rd or even 4th child isn’t grand, but there is something special about that first baby!!   Everything is so new and unusual, everyone is trying to figure everyone out – is he cold, hungry, wet?  Are you my mother?

As always I was so honored to be asked to document this family’s foray into being a family of 3 (or 5 if you count dogs & cats…).  Baby Matthew has a good life ahead of him!  Welcome to our world!!

I admit it!  I stole this idea from one of my favorite photographers out of California, Tara Whitney!  She calls these shots “the in between photos” and I LOVE them!!

I was fortunate to photograph the birth of this family’s 2nd son.  The plan was for me to do the same with baby #3…but we all know what happens to the best laid plans… This baby did not make it easy on his parents – he challenged them from the beginning – his poor Mama had to spend a couple of weeks in the hospital and then he had the gall to show up TEN weeks early!  Thankfully, he was a real trooper and was able to come home after about 4 weeks in the hospital.  So, in these images he’s actually 3 weeks from his actual due date!

It was so much fun to photograph this now family of 5!  Three boys – what lucky parents!!  Thank you Candace & Matt for letting me share this special moment!! Congratulations!!

Baby Barnes…last time we saw him, he was still fresh on this earth in the hospital. Now we find him safe at home, getting adjusted to his new people – who by the way are as smitten as ever for him.  Barnes has a lot to learn from his big sister – and she’s promised to show him the way – albeit, dramatically!  Gosh, I love that girl & could eat her up!  This is going to be a fun ride y’all!!

What an honor it was to document this family’s newest addition! I was so fortunate to be there when their daughter was born 3 years ago and thrilled when they asked me to be there for Barnes’ arrival. Since Barnes came via a cesarean section, I couldn’t be in the room when he was born, so I got to do the next best thing – document when his big sister met him for the 1st time…what a treat! Big Sister was so proud of her little brother and kept promising she would help him along the way.  Congratulations!!
