It never ceases to amaze me how different sibilings can be! For this family, big sister CG has always been a challenge to get smiles for the camera. She has always been too busy and not terribly amused by my antics, but little sister Claire thought I was hilarous! This little nugget was all smiles and giggles for her three month portrait session and I loved every minute of it!
Baby Kashdinn is such a little ham! He really lights up in front of the camera and is ready to put on a show! He is absolutely hilarious and I loved every moment of photographing him!

I feel like it took FOREVER for Baby Claire to get here! I have known for months and months and from the moment I heard, I started planning her newborn session. For her big sister, we included dad’s firefighter gear so this time I wanted to also include a nod to mom’s EMS career. So, Claire got to do both and got to play with some other new fun props! I am so honored to watch this family grow and capture images that they will treasure! Being the family historian is one of the coolest perks of this job!
Marisa is such a sweet, happy baby, but for her portrait session she decided to play it cool! When we could get her to laugh or smile she would drop her head down or put her hands in front of her face. It was like she was determined to only give us those super model cool looks! Even without huge smiles she is absolutely gorgeous and I am so glad she could come into the studio to play!
“Newborn portraits” are generally only done in the first two to three weeks of baby’s life, but sometimes (especially in a pandemic), parents aren’t able to get into the studio that fast. Many parents feel disappointed that they won’t get a newborn session after that initial window, but I still photograph a newborn type session up to eight weeks. Since babies develop and change so quickly, not all the newborn type poses are possible, but we are still able to capture a big variety of images!
Baby Kayden was six weeks old when we did his session and while he was determined to stay awake and watch me, we did get a lot of variety of awake and asleep images. Plus, look at how much those chubby cheeks had filled in!
