Beau: Fresh Baby

I get a lot of questions about newborns & specifically, these Fresh Baby sessions.  What are they?  When do they happen?  But won’t I look terrible in the photos if I just had a baby?

Let me tell you this:  motherhood is beautiful.  YOU are beautiful and these first moments with your new baby – whether it’s your first or your fourth – are ones that you can never recreate.  These sessions are my favorite sessions to photograph and I’m going to show you why.

When you or I look at these photos, what we will see is a family welcoming its newest member.

What mom will see is her sweet little girl, so incredibly sleepy & in need of a nap, but so full of love for her baby brother that she can barely handle herself.  Her biggest boy, so curious about this new change coming into his world.  Her little man – who is now a big brother himself, so happy and unaware of just how much his little life has changed.  Her parents.  Her husband.  Herself – exhausted from labor, but so incredibly in love with every single one of these faces.

Ahh.  Beau.  You’re the perfect caboose for this bunch.  🙂

Christmas Pajama Mini-Sessions

For months, I’ve been kicking this idea around in my head.  How to set up something fun, unique, and super cute for the holidays.  By this time of year, almost all of my “holiday” family sessions are already shot and/or booked.  Weekends are pretty  much gone (unless anyone is up for freezing with me outdoors at the end of December).  But…  I still have lots of kids I haven’t seen yet.  And that’s just no fun.

So, here they are.  Christmas Pajama Mini-Sessions!

These are going on now through early December with only ONE weekend set aside for them.  If you’re interested in booking, contact me ASAP to save your spot!   🙂

Mabel – 4 Days Old | NWA Newborn Photographer

Oh, little Miss Mabel.  The most perfect little face… she looks so much like her big sisters, I could hardly believe it when I saw her.  She gave us a good stretch of “awake” time today, but eventually gave in and slept so peacefully while we snapped away.  Here are just a few of the images from today’s session…

Mabel’s aunt made this precious little hat for her to wear… and I am posting this specifically for her because I know what it’s like to be a super proud aunt! 🙂

Welcome, Baby Brey

Spent Sunday afternoon with this adorable little family…  here are just a few snaps from our time together.  🙂

Come learn… you know you wanna | NWA Photography Workshops

Calling all moms/dads/aunts/uncles/grandparents – or anyone else who wants to learn to take better photographs of their kids!  After months of thinking & planning, I’m happy to announce that I’ll begin hosting snap! workshops this Fall.  So fun, right?

Workshops will be held in three-part sessions.  The first two will consist of small group meetings (4 participants maximum), using hands-on instruction.  The third is a one-on-one 45-minute session with me, to be scheduled at our convenience.

First session begins in the month of November and is being offered for an introductory rate of $150 per participant.

There is only one spot remaining for this group – get in quick! UPDATE: Group one is offically full. To inquire about future workshop dates, please click below!

Contact me to reserve your spot  (or for additional details/future group info)

Juliette | NWA Infant Photographer

Sweet Juliette… all of 11 weeks “new”, she has definitely created one happy mama.  Just look at those cheeks… you’d be happy too.  🙂

Lily | Rogers AR Newborn Photography

Sweet Lily… even awake, you’re perfect.

And then…

…he slept.  Finally.

Sweet Miles. Your TahTah loves you. 🙂

Rhys | Northwest Arkansas Newborn Photography

These babies just keep on comin’!  🙂

Little Rhys, a very much anticipated new guy in town, came today to play in the studio.  What a little lover he is already, at only 5 days old!

Michelle & Eric – can’t wait to show you the rest of Rhys’ gallery. I had a blast with you guys today, hope you love this sneak peek! 🙂

Jaxon | Centerton Arkansas Newborn Photography

I know I declared it Miles week on the blog… but come on, people.  Look at little Jaxon and tell me this wasn’t worth interrupting the celebration of my nephew.  🙂

I’ve been anxiously awaiting this little guy’s arrival, too, and I was so proud of him today during our session!  He gave us lots of posing and a couple smiles.

Sweet little man. I can’t get over how much he looks like his big brother! 🙂
