Zoey In-Home Newborn Lifestyle Photography Session in Central Mass

Recently I had the pleasure of doing an in-home newborn lifestyle photography session with a really sweet family right here in my neck of the woods in Central Mass. Zoey was just about 3 weeks old on the day that I came over to take her photos. Zoey was the sweetest little peanut and loves being held by her mommy and daddy <3

When I do newborn photography sessions I ALWAYS make sure to get these sweet little details. Especially little fingers and little toes.

Seriously, why are they so CUTE?!

I took a big documentary style approach to this session getting lots of bonding moments.

I was so happy to capture this moment below. Her parents call this her “little ohs” face. Every baby has a unique face they make or position they get into and it is so important to capture those quirks on camera!

This newborn moment was so sweet. However, if you have ever had a very hungry baby you know the real story behind the photo!

Sweet Spring Flowers - Newborn Shoot with Freya in Leominster, MA

I had little Freya come in to be my model for my upcoming training “How to Take Better Baby Photos at Home With Any Camera”. After we filmed the video I took some photos of her.

I loved her little spring newborn outfit with flowering peonies and a headband to match. TOO CUTE!

These photos were really only taken in a matter of minutes. I made sure to get all the details: eyelashes, little toes and little hands. And we got a bunch of really nice newborn portrait shots as well.

Follow Up With Kelley Walter and Fam

As I’ve said before, one thing I love is getting follow up calls. Why? Because I am always so amazed seeing these kids grow up. I can’t explain it but it just feels like a precious surprise each time.

The last time I saw Kelley he was 10 days old. And really he was more like -20 days old because he was born prematurely. He was super tiny. And there was no way to tell what kind of a person he would become.

Now, seeing him again at 9 months you can start to see where he is headed in life. The first thing I noticed was his red hair! Yay for recessive genes :)

But what I noticed most as we hung out for a couple of hours was how happy he was and how much he loves his parents. And how much they love him in return.

Toddler Trouble!

This past week I was in Miami and had the pleasure of doing another photos shoot of with Osena. It is always so amazing to see the progression from newborn to toddler. The first time I met Osena she was totally asleep and now she is bouncing off the walls. Her mom affectionately refers to her now as her “little rascal”.

Jackson Walking With His Great Grandmother

I. Can't. Even.

Every time baby Jackson saw his Great Grammy's walker he would grab it and start practicing.  He's 9 months and she is 87 years.

Grammy was thrilled to help Jackson because he is her first great grandson and in her words "he is the perfect baby".

I feel so privileged to have caught such a moment.  I know Jackson's mother and his Mimi will both cherish this for years to come.
