8 week old baby girl | Newborn Portrait Photography in Midlothian VA

As photographer’s we have our “sweet spot” of what age we prefer to do newborn sessions. For me, I really prefer 10-21 days.  With that being said, I have not turned away mothers who have not had a chance to get baby in at that age.   Sometimes baby may be really tiny at birth or have an extended stay at the hospital, and sometimes parents just haven’t settled in there routine and times gets away from them.  I would not turn a parent away just because baby is a little older. While this can make my job quite a bit more challenging, if parents are willing to spend extra time (possibly) waiting baby out, so am I.   I am so glad we did!!! I don’t know if I’m just super STUBBORN, or extremely PATIENT, lol, or if maybe those two traits are all wrapped up in each other, but we did it, and had a great time doing so.

Mama gave me this amazing review, which I find both hilarious and raw.

” I just wanted to say Thank You SO much for an awesome experience today!!  You are so great with babies & even when I thought “oh gosh this is annoying” when she was crying, you were so calm and just did wonderful with ***!
You are awesome at what you do!
I can’t wait to see the pictures!!  I just know they are going to be great!!”

 

I was able to get so many newborn poses with this gorgeous 8 week old baby.  She also had amazing eye contact when she was awake.

I am so glad we did her session and so are her parents. If you are interested in having a newborn portrait session or milestone session, contact me today for the details!

It is such an honor to get to photograph families throughout their milestones. I was so excited to meet the newest member of the family, Jaxon, after doing their maternity session.  This will likely be my last session with them as they are being relocated this fall.  I have loved being a part of these memories.  Congratulations!!!! Jaxon is such a dream. If you are interested in having a newborn photography session, contact me today for all the details!

Junior was so shy with him (maybe a little jealous of losing his spot) but he followed directions and held on to his baby brother like a champ.  Biggest brother Jeremy was amazing with him too!Newborn Baby Photography in Petersberg, VirginiaNewborn Baby Photography in Petersberg, VirginiaNewborn Baby Photography in Petersberg, Virginia

Baby Boy,12 Days New, Colonial Heights Newborn Photography | Central Virginia Baby Photographer

This sweet baby boy, came to my Colonial Heights studio last week at 12 days new. Isn’t he a cutie? New babies add such a special excitement to a family but when you have your first baby boy, after having girls, there is an added element of joy.  It was so special to see his daddy stare at his tiny little features, in awe of the baby boy that their love created. Baby Justin was an absolute dream to work with.  I loved capturing all of his teeny tiny features and expressions and its ever more special when I get to capture a smile. Baby Justin was my first baby in the studio after travelling for 9 days to two amazing newborn artists, first Kelly Brown, of Little Pieces Photography by Kelly Brown, and then Amy McDaniel of Dewdrops Photography by Amy McDaniel.

I learned so much with my time in Alabama training with Amy of Dewdrops Photography by Amy McDaniel. I have a new appreciation for shadows and dramatic light used for newborn photography. I have noticed such a huge difference in my work after going to her.  If you are interested in having a newborn portrait session in the Colonial Heights, VA area, contact me today for all the details!
