Before I share this beautiful newborn session with you today, I want to share my thoughts on why I love this session so much. I have ALWAYS been drawn to lifestyle newborn photography. Even from the very beginning of my business, it's really what I wanted for my newborn work. If you aren't sure what that is, to me, lifestyle is the art of capturing more honest, natural, emotive images. For the most part, that's always what I've done. And those are always the newborn sessions I love the most. Don't get me wrong. I have so much respect for newborn photographers that can pose a baby with props in all sorts of positions. It takes mad skills! But more and more, I just know that's not me. This is me. This session right here. Just hanging out with this family for a few hours. Watching them interact and capturing all those sweet details. These are the sessions that make me excited. It's exactly the way I want to capture families. This family is so incredibly special to me because they were sweet enough to take a chance on me in the very beginning. Before I even officially had a business, they were one of my first portfolio building clients. I am so thankful for them for trusting me again to capture their family during such a special time in their lives. I can honestly say, I always have the very best time hanging out with them. These two little ones are very blessed to be in such a sweet and loving family. Congrats Levenson family!

My first session of the year was shooting this sweet little guy and his family for his first birthday party. It was perfectly done. Beautiful home with adorable decorations and lots of friends and family to celebrate this little one. Happy Birthday Nash!
I love seeing my BSP babies grow! Sweet Caroline is a Christmas baby and I got to photograph her for the first time as a newborn, you can see that here. I've completely fallen in love with their family and I just felt instantly connected to her mama the first time we met. You know those people you are just completely comfortable around as soon as you meet them? Yep, that's her mama. I am so glad I've been able to photograph them over the past two years and see this sweet girl grow. Merry Christmas Hunt Family!
Merry Christmas to you and yours this week! I am going to try my best to get all these sweet Christmas tree farm sessions blogged since most cards should be out now. (although I just sent mine today, yikes!) I love this sweet family and it is such a joy to photograph them. I can't wait to meet their new little one just next month!
I can't say enough how sweet it was to photograph this sweet family. I've gone to church with Mark and Ashley for years and it's been a blessing to see their family grow. Their little ones are precious and they made my job so easy. Enjoy these sweet photos of this lovely family.
I love getting to photograph this family. They have been with me since the early days of my business and I am so thankful to still be photographing them! Merry Christmas Martin Family!
Oh my goodness how I love this family. They are so special to me because they were my very first clients. I know I say that every time I photograph them but it is so special to me because they were the first people to trust me with their family memories and that is so special to me. I love photographing them more and more each time because they are just so easy. I mean, really. They are crazy about each other and it shows. And that makes me a very, very happy photographer. Love you guys. Enjoy your photos.
Fall is my favorite and busiest time of year and one of the reason I love it so much is because I get to meet so many new and wonderful families. This family is the perfect example. They were so sweet and easy to photograph. Their love for their sweet baby girl is all over their faces. I loved hearing mom at our session keep saying to her daughter "I could just eat you up with a spoon!" I totally know the feeling and I love seeing that love come through in photographs. Our session was a little different because shortly in the sky grew very dark and scary and we ended up running for the cars! We met back up the very next night to finish our session but I love how we got this beautiful dramatic light the first night and a gorgeous sun filled session the very next night. Enjoy these photos of a very sweet family! Happy Birthday Ms. M! Style by Nicole Wise Styling
Happy Birthday today to this sweet little guy! It has been so fun to see him grow throughout his first year. What a blessed little guy to have such a wonderful family. Happy Birthday Camden!
I always love getting to photograph this sweet family. They are always fun and so easy to be with. I was so excited to get to photograph them this year at the pumpkin patch. It is the perfect way to kick off fall and see this little guys exploring the pumpkins. And I loved their styling by Nicole! Enjoy these sweet photos of this beautiful family!
I love photographing families over the course of a babies first year. It is so much fun to get to see how they've changed and grown. I had the best time catching up with these guys last week and celebrating their baby girl's first year. They always have me cracking up! Happy Birthday sweet girl!
I recently got to photograph this family for the second time this year to celebrate Ms. Sophie's 1st birthday. This family is so sweet. It has been an honor to photograph you guys this year. Blessings to you as you celebrate your sweet girl.
I have a handful of clients that have been with me since the beginning and I've had the pleasure of photographing their family as it grows and this beautiful family is one of them. I first photographed them when Lauren was pregnant with big sis and all throughout her first year here, here and here. So, I was so excited when they contacted me for maternity photos for sweet baby girl number two and now their in home newborn session. They are so much fun and completely relaxing to hang out with. Congratulations Cardwell Family! Blessings on you and your family as you grow. :)
A couple of weeks ago, I got to photograph this beautiful family in the mountains. If you know this family, you love them. They are completely adorable, have huge hearts for the Lord and will keep you cracking up the whole time you are with them. I was so excited that we got to do this styled session with them. This past spring, I was chatting with my super-stylish friend Nicole about how I would love to have styling for my clients. She has the best eye for fashion and always looks fabulous. My clients are always asking about styling and what to wear and although I do my very best to help them, I knew that having someone dedicated to them and their style needs would add an incredible element to their session, as well as make their experience with me even more fun and relaxed. So I asked Nicole if she would be interested in styling my clients, and from there Nicole Wise Styling was born. We wanted to kick off her services by doing a giveaway which we held this past Spring to also celebrate 2 years in business for me.
This sweet family was the recipient of our styled session and they were incredible to work with. It was so much fun throughout the whole process. We wanted this session to be really special and after seeing Nicole's style boards for their session, I knew I wanted to take them to the mountains. Having Nicole style them really helped me with my vision for their session and it took lots of stress off of Amanda from having to put together outfits and accessories for her family. Not to mention, she felt totally pampered having her hair and makeup done before the session. If you are interested in a styled session, you can find out more info on Nicole's services here. Enjoy these sweet photos of this wonderful family!
If you make it to the bottom, there's a little behind the scenes video from our session. Enjoy!
Last week I took my 3 babes out to this gorgeous little pumpkin patch for a few shots for my limited edition pumpkin patch mini sessions. I am so in love with these images and I can't wait to do these for my clients. They were styled by my sweet friend Nicole Wise. You can find out more about her styling services for my clients here. I HIGHLY recommend. It made dressing them super easy for me. And in case you didn't see here, I am offering very limited pumpkin patch mini sessions this fall. As of this afternoon, there is only one spot left, so be sure to let me know if you want it!
I'll go ahead and warn you. This post is LONG. Last night I went through all my pictures of my Reid over this past year and I literally tried to narrow my favorites down and I'm sorry, but this is as good as I could do. :) I am sitting here with tears in my eyes and just in disbelief that this first year is already over. Its funny how with the first baby you are looking forward to seeing your child complete each milestone but with your second and even more so with your third, for me, all you want to do is for time to slow down. To keep them little. This first year with my little buddy has been great. It's been hard at times, overwhelming pretty much everyday, but through all that, I've been stretched in new ways, grown in my relationship with the Lord and refined as a mother. It is such a gift to see my older kids love him. Remember the way you felt when you fell in love with your first child when they were placed in your arms and you got to fall more and more in love with them with every passing day? Well, to me, seeing that same love from my older kids towards Reid is like that feeling times a billion. It is just the best. All throughout my pregnancy with Reid, I felt the Lord confirming this verse to me for Reid's verse "Blessed be the Lord because He has heard the voice of my supplication! The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him and I am helped; Therefore my heart greatly rejoices. And with my song, I will praise Him." Psalm 28:6-7 Happy Birthday Baby. ~ Mama
It has been a joy to photograph this sweet baby girl and her family since she was in her mama's tummy. I seriously feel so blessed to get to do multiple sessions with family throughout the course of their baby's first year and beyond. I have loved getting to watch this sweet girl grow. Happy First Birthday Ms. Savannah!
This family is so special. I have absolutely loved photographing them through out this past year. We've done maternity, birth, newborn, 3months, 6months, 9 months and now this sweet boys One year session. What a blessing it has been to watch him grow and to see his family grow more and more in love with him. Blessings to your sweet family. It has been an honor to photograph you this year.
A couple of weeks ago, I got to photograph this beautiful newborn baby girl and her family. They are seriously the sweetest family. I felt right at home with them since I got to know them a bit at their maternity session this spring. What a sweet and adorable family. Enjoy this wonderful time in your lives Johnson Family!
I got to meet up with this sweet family a couple of weeks ago to celebrate their little guy turning one. On his Birthday even! They are such a gorgeous family. Happy Birthday little man!
