Double Time!

After a successful casting call, I recently made my first attempt at newborn twins!  I have to admit that I was slightly petrified prior – what if I bombed it???  There is a very small window of opportunity to truly capture that brand new baby phase, so often times a re-shoot isn’t an option.  I studied twin posing that I loved, pinned images that really resonated with me by artists that I admired, and asked my dear friend Amber Richter to assist with the soothing and posing (who could resist that job???).   I was as ready as I was going to be when the family arrived and I have to confess that it all went much smoother than I anticipated.  The girls were angels, big brother filled the role with pride, and the parents were just as patient as can be.  These are just a few “sneak peeks” from the session – I can’t wait to post more!

Not A Moment Too Soon | Fort Campbell Newborn Photographer

I love newborn photography. There is just something magical about capturing those precious days {the first 10 to be exact} where the little angels are still curled up in womb-like positions.  Typically, after those very fleeting days, babies stretch out, are more alert, and resist most sleepy posing that parents adore.  The parents of this beautiful baby girl contacted me in a moment of desperation.  Their newborn photographer dropped the ball once their baby was born.  I am not positive what the circumstances were, I just knew that here was a little princess who had been patiently waiting for weeks on newborn portraits – even though she wasn’t technically considered a “newborn” anymore by most photographers’ definitions.  It broke my heart to know that those fleeting, womb-like, sleeping portraits that this family desired may be just a wish.  We scheduled as soon as we could and the parents were overly patient as I did my best to get the most “newborn-like” portraits possible.  This little angel was just as sweet as can be – she must have known we were shooting for the stars that day.  Her parents were ecstatic with her portraits, which makes me feel like I made a difference.  To me, that’s all that matters.

March Project 12

I love photography challenges and projects!  I enjoy the varied themes and the chance to shoot just for fun every once in a while.  This month’s Newborn Goodness theme for the Project 12 was GREEN!  I love Kylie’s green eyes in this picture and although I went on a GREEN spree the last few weeks, this is the image that resonates in my heart.  She glows, her eyes sparkle, and I can’t help but smile looking at her.

Are you interested in joining in on the Project?  Join us at Newborn Goodness and jump in!  Check out these other perspectives on GREEN that I adore:
