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!!
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:-)
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
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!!!
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
This little guy is already a Tampa Bay Lightening fan! Autumn and Collin's other child, Tate, (the 4 legged furry kind:-) is use to being a model since he was in their engagement photos and he was very sweet with Dax. So many sweet moments with this little cutie and his parents, we even got a little smile while Collin was holding him. They have this awesome family wall in their living room that was the perfect ending to our session!
This little guy has the biggest blue eyes and is definitely going to be a heartbreaker! His bumble bee themed room was the perfect place for photos with mom and dad:-) He slept for just a little bit but then didn't want to miss out on any of the action. My favorite is the little tie and mustache!
We love how the sweet moments of little 5 day old Matai with his parents turned out in print! Here's just a couple of our favorite spreads inside their album.
This little guy has the best hashtag, it's #tagyourit! You can feel the love and joy they have in just the first few days of being parents. Tag was awake for just a few minutes and then let us use all the fun travel themed stuff in his room for these sweet moments!
I got to spend some time photographing this handsome little guy when he was just 5 days old! I absolutely love these sweet moments with Lyani and Darren in their home. We even got a little smile and lots of those baby toes. Makes me happy seeing them so happy! Congrats you guys, he's just perfect!!
