baby michael: newbie!

so happy together.


michael’s newborn lifestyle session.

baby michael has arrived!

i first met laura at her sister lindsey’s wedding in late 2008, and i was *thrilled* to hear from her a few months ago and find out that she was expecting her first baby! meeting baby michael was fantastic and i loved the opportunity to spend time with her new family – including both of michael’s grandmas! everyone was so excited to be around this little baby – and at just two weeks old he is already so incredibly loved.

welcome little micheal – and enjoy!

logan: newborn session.

december baby.

welcome to the world little logan!

logan is the tiniest, newest person i’ve ever met, weighing in at just over 7lbs and 12 days old!

i loved just looking at him, he was unbelievably tiny and perfect – reaching and yawning and cooing and crying and snuggling up on his parents. even more exciting, logan is part of  my new extended family – he is my sister’s nephew, her husband’s brother’s baby! kind of like my nephew-in-law…woohoo!

enjoy!

baby ashton: newborn session!

little peanut.

hello baby ashton!

just 7 weeks old, ashton is a tiny, happy little baby with the biggest bluest eyes – love! he was full of personality – from his big wide smiles to sweet little yawns i had a great time capturing all of his expressions. my absolute favorite part of the session was photographing ashton in his beautiful basket bassinet – a family heirloom that his parents brought down from new england when he was born. gorgeous!

enjoy!

gracyn + kimsey: lifestyle session!

new baby + new big sister!

BLONDEPHOTO_090917_001-3

hello baby gracyn!

this delightful 4-week old baby girl was such a joy to photograph. i loved spending the morning with her + big sister kimsey (don’t you just *adore* their gorgeous names?) – it was a joy watching their amazing mom shannon swoon over them! shannon is good friends with the fabulous kristin demarco – nursery designer + mommy extraordinaire – so it was no surprise that i fell in love with shannon + her girls immediately.

i love seeing mothers interact with their children – there is something wonderfully overwhelming about witnessing that kind of limitless, unconditional love. plus, seeing such tiny perfect replicas of people always excites me! i am totally, completely in awe of babies, families and everything and i feel so lucky to document their lives!

enjoy!

baby chase: newborn session.

hey baby!

baby chase, 9 weeks.

hello (again!) baby chase! just a few weeks ago i met chase for the first time when he was just 5 weeks old! he was cute as could be, but sleepy and hungry during our session! i captured some serene photographs but wanted a little more action, so i popped back over last week for a quick visit and was amazed at how much he had changed! in just a few weeks his little lips are so full, his eyelashes are gorgeously long (aren’t they always on little boys?) and he was far more interested in my camera than before. he grinned and pouted, laughed and yawned, and passed out right at the end…as if on cue :)

enjoy!

anna rose: newborn session.

hello baby!

annarose-newborn

anna rose has arrived!

anna rose is the tiniest baby and *newest* newborn i have ever photographed! at 17 days old and under 8 lbs she is so little and so very perfect! i was thrilled to meet her and amazed that she was so alert throughout our session – her big blue eyes loved my camera! yay!

joe + kristin (her fantastic parents) are thrilled to welcome their third child into the family, and anna rose couldn’t be luckier! this is one of my absolute favorite families – i’ve photographed them many times and i always have a blast and love how the photographs seem to reflect their love so perfectly. they have so much fun together it’s contagious, and i know jules and alexander are so excited to have a new baby sister!

kristin really just wanted photographs of anna rose, but i couldn’t help capturing the amazing moments between mommy + baby! kristin is such a wonderful, loving, gentle, and understanding mother – watching her with anna rose in her arms made me so happy :)

kristin + joe: it’s truly been a joy and a privilege to document your lives so far and i can’t wait for our next session in a few months! thank you for continuing to trust me with preserving your memories. 

enjoy!
