did you know

Did you know that I am slightly obsessed with newborns? Did you know that I am secretly FOR REALS baby hungry every time I photograph a newborn? Did you know that I need to learn to control that or I’ll have a fifth boy running around my household? And, while we’re on the subject of newborns, did you know that I am part owner of a photography magazine called Mozi Magazine? Our newborn issue was released last month, and you can check it out here. Did you know I apparently have no problem throwing in a shameless plug here and there? Enjoy this sweet babe and his family…

This is my last tiny one for the rest of the year. I kept it together until I saw her in the owl hat. That’s when I broke down and declared myself baby hungry.

little girls and such

It was just a few months ago that I was photographing her big sister, and she was just a bump on her mama’s tummy. But, now she’s here in all of her tiny, perfect glory :)

Big sisters like to help too…

and have undivided attention from their mama :)

Three of my favorite people are now four of my favorite people…

newborn chaosness

September 27, 2012

I am always amazed how every newborn shoot is unpredictable and different. Sometimes the newborns cry the entire time. Sometimes they sleep the entire time. Usually, they fuss, squirm, kind of sleep, eat, squirm some more, and finally fall into a good sleep for about 15 minutes. I have learned that newborns can not be rushed or pushed. Soooo, we just go with the flow and have fun along the way while we wait for that tiny, little human to cooperate.

Follow along as I take you through a recent newborn shoot of a special, little family…

Miracle! Baby sleeps at the beginning of the session and even gives me a tiny smile to produce one of my very favorite newborn images.

Every once in a while, a toddler comes along who is more than willing to snuggle with baby sibling. Another miracle!

Are you kidding? Big sister is still rocking it out. Love her.All right, baby’s had enough. Crying and hungry. Exit mom and enter dad.Baby’s back! But, big sister is DONE.
I imagine Mom’s are usually exhausted at this point, but we manage some beautiful shots of her and wee one.
Moving back to dad. He is often the staple person trying to hold all the craziness together. Love baby and dad shots SO much.

And, I saved my favorite for last. Mmmmmmm, love.
