Owen Davis | In Home – Newborn Session

2017-05-26

Everyone, meet my baby boy Owen Davis! He was born December 31st at 1:22am, 5lbs and 12oz. He’s changed quite a bit since this newborn session that I took when he was a week old in our home. I’ve been snappin photos of him left + right, so I’m sure you can expect to see some updated portraits coming soon!

I’m officially off of maternity leave and getting back into the groove of things. Hello emails + editing galore! Finding time in between my sweet boys naps has me all sorts of confuzzled since I was so used to being able to sit down and pump work out hours on end, whenever I felt like it! But alas, I’ve fiiiinally finished editing and now blogging his newborn session. Looking back at these images has been so much fun. I can’t believe how tiny Owen was! I did bare minimal editing to these images because I wanted to remember every little detail about him – the peach fuzz, the infant rash, tiny little scratches he gave himself because it was near impossible to clip his nails at first..all of it! I used an array of new muslin blankets I’d been gifted + collected, as well as hand knit blankets passed down from my mom and great grandma (that were once used on me)! It was so special getting to pass along these blankets, keeping them in the family and wrapping Owen up in them. He’s really taken to one in particular and I’m fairly certain it’s going to be “his blanky” through the years.

I went for a more minimalistic approach with these images, focusing on capturing all of the silly faces and expressions Owen made. Keep in mind, I literally just gave birth to a baby and wasn’t getting around the best, so it is what it is! But I’m super proud of how they turned out and love that I got to snap a few memories in between each setting when Caleb or my mom or family got to hold Owen and help me out. For all NB sessions, there’s always multiple milk breaks. You’ll notice a ton of “trying to nurse” photos – haha! In the beginning of his life, and well, let’s be honest, still to this day – when o-bear get’s hungry he’ll try and latch on to anything and everything near his face. Pacifier’s, shirts, blankets, hands, the chest of whoever is holding him.. it’s pretty adorable. Luckily he’s started learning better what actually gives him the goods.

You will also find some shots of our nursery that I worked tirelessly on through out my pregnancy! It was so much fun getting to be creative and piece together everything. We went with a modern, minimalistic woodsy theme! Bears and dears and natural elements galore. Links to everything below!

Happy FRIYAY!

Baby Avenell | Newborn Lifestyle Session | Manheim, PA

2016-08-01

I realized that I never got around to sharing one of my all time favorite families/newborn sessions! This was a lifestyle session, in the Robert’s home. I am so obsessed with the rich architecture and beautiful wood interior’s. These guys know what’s up with style/design. Kelly had so many great little hats/bonnets, blankets and baskets. So great for newborn sessions! And how about the little booties she MADE with her very own hands? I can’t even.

When you’re planning for a newborn/lifestyle session, it’s best to plan for 2 hours (to allow for diaper changes, feeding, and swaddling when your little one isn’t feeling like sleeping/smiling) during mid afternoon so there will be pretty sunlight streaming through your windows. I’ve really enjoyed all of the newborn/lifestyle sessions that have been coming my way lately. I think it’s quickly becoming a specialty of mine that I favor!

It’s so hard to believe Avenell Josephine is going to be one year old soon! Time seriously gets away from me all too fast. I could go on and on about these images and how much I love them, but I think I will just let them talk for themselves. 🙂

Avery Alden | Newborn Lifestyle Session | Philadelphia, PA

2016-06-16

Scott, Christen, Avery and Sunny.. the sweetest little family nestled in the most stylist house in Philadelphia. Seriously, I cannot get over the tall ceilings, white + brick walls, and allll of those long windows and dreamy natural light! It also doesn’t hurt that these two are interior design wizards. Scott actually does general contracting as a profession and I am all about having him come spruce up my home some time in the future! *Insert praise hands*.

I was beyond excited to photograph this lifestyle/newborn session! I have been photographing newborns and in-home lifestyle shoots left and right and I am LOVING IT. Nothing beats the authenticity that these types of sessions bring to the portraits. A fun fact about this session is that literally 45 minutes before I left my house to head to Philly, I found out that I was pregnant! It took all I had to keep it inside and not burst at the seems over all the baby talk Christen and I were having. Best way to kick off the baby fever-mama to be glow!

Avery Alder was born May 3rd, at 12:57am, 5 pounds 13 ounces, and 18.5 inches long. SO. TINY. He was just the cutest little thing to photograph. I am going to let these images speak for themselves, because sometimes, there’s just nothing that’ll beat it. 🙂

Addison Marloe | Lifestyle Newborn Session

2016-06-14

Two of my close friends Jeff and Darcy recently grew into a family of three! Little Addison is just the sweetest. I had such a great time swooning over her and photographing her while she was just two weeks old. Try to look through these and not smile ear to ear over the cuteness.. just try.

Charlotte Leigh | Newborn | Hospital Session

2016-06-08

Photographing births can be completely up in the air because each birth is different and you just never know what you’re going to get! Our goal was to photograph the delivery of little Charlotte, but her mama Alissa was such a champ with quite a different birth experience then she was expecting, so we wound up nixing the delivery photos and did a day after session instead! To give you some insight into how different little Charlotte’s entrance was from her parents expectations, the doctors had told Alissa and Alex that they were having a boy! So a blue nursery, and all the cutest little boy clothes later, much to their surprise, they had a girl! Enter sweet, sweet Charlotte. I love each and every birth story so much because there isn’t one that is alike. Each family has their own experience and story, and being even just the tiniest part of that story by getting to document the moments through out is so, so awesome.

Everyone, meet Charlotte!
