new year, new babe

January 6, 2014

Welllll, this babe wasn’t ACTUALLY born in this new year, but I am just getting around to showing him off. I had the pleasure of documenting the new life of this beautiful little family in Chicago last month. Enjoy :)

    Gorgeous. Every single one of them. The way that baby is looking at you propped on dad’s shoulder cracks me up. And your favorites are mine — esp. the one of dad and baby in the nursery. Love your exposure on that one. You are, seriously, a photo ninja.

    I just found a link to you images on pinterest. Before I pinned them to my Golden Moments Photography board I clicked through to your site. I am just in.. love.. In the past I have not been a huge fan of newborn photography. I admired and appreciated it but it did not capture me. Here is what I wrote on my pin… “newborn composition I just LOVE the way this photographer captures newborns!! I can just feel the calm, sweet, tender, fresh love and emotions that must have been in the room during these moments. Everyone has their own style but these do not seem staged but are still artful. Possibly my favorite newborn photos seen to date!! Thank you for sharing your talent with the world! So glad to have stumbled across you. Please let me know if you ever do a workshop in Maui! Mahalo, Malia
