I got some newborn baby snuggles with miss Selene when she was just 10 days old. She was super curious about what was going on and tried not to sleep:-) She loves that pink pacifier, it’s almost as big as her little face. That soft pink and white chevron blanket was a gift and came with the perfect little neck pillow. I love the meanings of names and so I had to look up Selene and it means “brightness” or “moon goddess” which she definitely is to her sweet family!
When Autumn emailed me letting me know she and Collin were expecting baby boy #2 and they wanted to do his first year just like Dax their oldest it literally made my week! They named him Jon because they wanted another name with 3 letters and Dax kept singing the “Brother Jon” song so it totally was perfect! Autumn found another adorable little kid chair to do his photos with that coordinated, but was totally different than Dax’s. Their sweet sweet pup Tate has made an appearance in all their sessions beginning from engagement photos and we even got one with all of them looking:-) So much love and these are just a few!
My 2 favorite things with newborns, catching them smile in their sleep and hearing that tiny new little baby cry. This handsome little guy gave us both:-) 3 years ago we had the honor of photographing Rebecca and Danny’s wedding and now they are a party of 4 with little miss Alayna being promoted to big sister. Congratulations you guys, such a beautiful family!!
Lyani and Darren’s family is now a party of 5 with their brand new handsome little edition, Noble. I have to tell you, I’ve gotten to be there for so many of their family’s important moments and my love runs deep for them. They have a lush garden that was perfect for their family pics and then we took little Mr. Noble in his nursery for some special ones with his mom and dad. Make sure you scroll down to see how awesome his nursery is……
Lyani is a very talented interior designer. So Noble’s nursery is cool and calming with all the different blue patterns but also fun and bright with the yellow dresser and the complimenting yellow in the chair, and that lion!!
We photographed Carrie & Mike’s wedding in 2012 and nothing makes me happier than getting to photograph their little ones! Shiloh’s big bother Noah was so excited to be in some photos with his new baby sister. Shiloh didn’t love her little crown but she looks so cute in it and is definitely a princess!!!
Heather and Crafton’s beautiful family is now a party of 4!! I remember when Tag was born and he’s already 2 and so cute and ready to be a great big brother. Tag also wore this little white diaper cover. I love the light and colors Heather and Crafton’s room, it was perfect and Banks snoozed his way through most of our session:-)
Isn’t Mireia the cutest little unicorn you ever did see? I love her name, it means Miracle, which is the perfect name for her! We did her newborn session when she was 9 days old which is my favorite because they are so little and squishy. I always have mom and dad be in some even though it’s so hard being in that new parent sleepless fog but it goes by so fast! Kelly and Pedro she is gorgeous and I am so happy to see you all as a party of 3:-)
You might remember seeing Haley and Mitchell’s wedding on the blog. One of my favorite surprises ever, their wedding cake cutting was actually the gender reveal for this little guy! I swore it was a girl but Haley told me she knew it was a boy and she’s destined to be a boy mom. Colton is so sweet and is so loved by his mom & dad and 2 big brothers! Haley’s been one of our photographers for gosh like 7 years now so I remember when Kyson and Taylor were just little guys and now they’re so grown up. Colton didn’t want to miss any of the action but we finally wore him down (and his brothers too:-)
It's been almost 2 years since we photographed Lauren & Zach's wedding and we couldn't be happier to photograph them as a family of 3! (Technically 4 with their sweet pup Bea:-) I love the little matching shirt he and his daddy have. This first photo is my fav of these 2 smiling. His nursery is already a man cave with bear details and sheets. Landon was not going to miss but a minute of his first portrait session and he's already working on his core muscles. Such a beautiful family!!! xoxoxo
I got to meet Melissa and Michael's little beauty when she was 1 week old! We photographed their wedding last October and LOVE seeing them as a family of 3 now! Her nursery is decorated in purple and little elephant accents. That boppy pillow is the so cute and she loved snoozing in it. Congratulations you guys, she is just beautiful!
It's almost Mother's day! There really isn't anything better to be able to post on this mother's day weekend than this sweet sweet newborn session with Wake and his mom and dad! I got to know and love Erin and Joe having photographed their wedding last March and am beyond happy to have the honor of photographing their sweet family of 3. Wake's nursery is so cute, decorated in navy with stars, books, and the wagon that was a gift from his Aunt. I had to take all the books out and use it as a prop:-) Happy first mother's day Erin and congratulations again you guys!!! xoxoxo
This sweet little guy has 2 big brothers that are going to teach him how to play all the video games:-) His grandparents were in town so we had to include them in some photos with him as well. His room is themed Winnie the Poo and he fit right in line with Tigger, Eeyore, and Piglet in his adorable Winnie the Poo outfit. Here's a few of my favs from their sweet newborn/family session!
Each person has a story behind them, and this little guy has quite a story already! His parents, Derek and Aubrey are dear friends of David and I, so it's extra special to have been there alongside them during their journey of adoption. It's got it's twists and turns on the windy narrow path that is like none other but, at the end it looks like this! We had a date on the calendar that we were going to the hospital with them to meet him and photograph it, but, Maddox Cole decided to make his debut a couple of weeks early. He was actually a few days old already when Derek and Aubrey got the call that they could come and meet their son. 11 lbs 5 oz and 22.5 inches, SO adorable and very squishy:-) How cute is his little hat and matching tie? Maddox's room is mint and gray, I love the triangular patterned wall and shelves of books. Their home is overflowing with so much love and joy, I love it! Congratulations friends!!!
Little miss Lorelei makes the Crissman family a party of 4! I've been photographing them since their engagement session and I absolutely love getting to see their family grow. Ezra is the sweetest big brother. When he was a newborn we photographed him in this same basket with a similar handmade blanket that was boy colors. The little dress that Lorelei is wearing is actually the same Easter dress that Rachel wore when she was a baby. Chad is an LA Kings fan so gotta start this little fans off right! Here's some of my favs from their sweet session!
This little tiny dinosaur gave us a little smile! His room is decked in fun dino stuff and his mom found these adorable little outfits for him and his big brother. Here's some of our favorite sweetness!!
This little guy got to have TWO newborn sessions! His first session was while he was still spending time in the hospital growing and getting strong so he could come home. It was so awesome to get to see how much he's grown and Meghann, David and Daxton settled in at home. He is so handsome and those bright blue eyes!! His mom and dad like different sports teams so he's already a Yankees, Braves, and FSU fan:-) How fabulous is that Chief Osceola head dress? Such a little cutie!
This session is technically, Dax's newborn session but, he and his parents have quite a story already. Meghann had been keeping me posted as she was due with twins the end of this month. In September, during hurricane Irma, Meghann had to be rushed to the hospital and a couple days later Dax, and his twin sister Ellie James had to be born at 24 weeks and 5 days. So tiny, at 1.5 lbs and less than 1 ft long. Little miss Ellie James passed away 5 days later on September 19th and since then Dax has been in the NICU growing and getting stronger and stronger. He was 5 lbs 8 oz when I got to see him and did so awesome on his first photo shoot, he even threw up a peace sign and had some really big yawns:-) I got to see Meghann yesterday to show her these photos and she said almost all his wires are gone and they are hoping to get to go home very soon! For me, this was an extra special session capturing this sweet family at this moment in their story. I can't wait to see them again for Dax's 2nd newborn session when he goes home!!
5 years ago on 11.17 I was photographing Rachel and Pete's wedding and now they are a family of 3! Giada is such a little beauty! She tried to stay awake but you know, when you're less than 3 weeks old it's pretty hard to:-) So tiny and squishy and just plain adorable. Rachel and Pete she's just beautiful, we're so happy for you guys!! xoxoxo
I've gotten to photograph so many important moments for Anum and Eihab, engagement session (one of my favs ever at IKEA:-), wedding, maternity session, and now they are officially a party of 3! Little miss Laila is so cute and squishy she was very alert and didn't want to miss any of the action. I love seeing our couples become families it's literally my favorite! Stay tuned for Laila's 6 month and 1 year session!!!
Usually when I see Lara it's at a wedding at the Florida Aquarium as she's one of the event managers there! This time it was to photograph her, Brad, and sweet little baby Marilyn! The house the live in happened to have the perfectly painted pink wall for a little girl and they decorated the nursery with canvas hearts and different pink and white patterned cute things. This little girl is already wanting to be in on all the action and pretty good at holding her pacifier by herself! Congrats you 3, such a beautiful family!
