Well, better late than never I suppose! Sam is almost 5 months old now, but I'm finally getting around to blogging her newborn photos!
***Quick Disclaimer: This blog post does not represent a typical newborn session. These photos were taken over the course of a month, which is why there are so many different set ups.
This very first photo that I took... there are no words. It chokes me up every time I look at it. In front of my two precious, miracle babies lays all kind of needles and medications that were used during our fertility treatments.
Oh this next shot cracks me up. Naturally since I'm a photographer I wanted to incorporate a camera somehow. We had her all set up and ready to go, I took this test shot to make sure my settings on my camera were correct and then before we could pull the pacifier out of her mouth she startled and refused to go back into this pose. I decided I don't care, it's too cute not to keep, even if she does have a huge pacifier in her mouth!
I love this bonnet... and this girl!
If you haven't already read my story about this fortune from a fortune cookie, you can check it out here. It's a good one!
I've been marching, spinning, teaching color guard for the majority of my life. So when we found out we were having a girl, I knew I wanted to incorporate a flag and sabre into a photo with her!
Oh the sibling shots... I knew they would be a challenge with our almost three year old and he did not disappoint! Somehow, you can't even tell from looking at these shots I was able to get, they're absolutely perfect to me.
All three of my babies!
I was so excited to do this train shot for Lucas! We have a 20x30 canvas of this shot hanging in his room, he loves it!
Sam and Bean, my youngest and oldest.
Pretty in purple...
I think this is my favorite photo ever of me... those sweet little eyes of hers. <3
Daddy and his princess!
I had read many times that doing your own newborn photos is EXTREMELY difficult, but I decided to give it a go anyway. It's true, it is SO hard, haha. But I think all the frustration and tears (and there were a lot!) were worth it in the end.
