Portraits: welcome baby nora, newborn photos

Baby Nora arrived four weeks early, happy and healthy. Big sister, Charlotte, will be turning two in October and it’s fun to look back on her newborn photos and compare those little baby faces – imagining how much more they will look alike as they grow older. Nora did a great job for her session, barely fussing as we changed poses. Love all those sweet little baby features! Congratulations to Emily and Graham on baby number two!

Two years ago in spring Ashley and Jesse were celebrating their engagement surrounded my an orchard of blooming apple trees. Little did they know, just two years later, they would be spending their spring holding onto their brand new baby boy. One of the greatest joys of being a photographer is getting to watch love stories grow like this, from proposals and weddings to bellies and babies. Congratulations on your new arrival, Ashley and Jesse! And happy day of birth, Landon Daniel!

Portraits: welcome baby jocelyn, newborn photos

Green-Bay-Newborn-Baby-Photos-Indoors-Studio-Door-County-Flowers-GirlAshley and Scott were blessed with their first baby in April: little Jocelyn Elaine. At one week new for her session, she was sleepy and snuggly and happiest in mommy and daddy’s arms. She did a wonderful job, and settled peacefully into every pose we tried. As a spring baby, we decided to do a special photo involving fresh flowers – lilies and tulips – that would remind her family of this very special time she arrived.

Congratulations to Ashley and Scott and all the family whose lives Jocelyn has already touched. Lots of well wishes for a wonderful baptism on Sunday!

Portraits: charlotte’s sitting session, green bay, wisconsin

Green-Bay-Family-Photos-Indoors-Studo-Baby-Photographer-Infant-Six-MonthsMost of the time we consider ourselves outdoor photographers, but here in Wisconsin weather can be unpredictable when it comes to photographing little ones. We decided to hold Charlotte’s sitting milestone session indoors with light, springy colors inspired by April (and that completely adorable kitty dress!) It’s always amazing to me what a different experience it is from photographing newborns at a few weeks old and having them return at six months. The last time we saw Charlotte she was a sleepy, squishy bundle, and now she is smiling, interactive, very observant, and of course, mobile. Sitting sessions are one of my favorites because of all these changes and the amount of personality that can come through in the images. We can’t wait to see how much she changes by the time one year photos roll around!

Portraits: welcome baby emerson, newborn photos

Green-Bay-Newborn-Baby-Photos-Family-Siblings-Sister-Love-1 Green-Bay-Newborn-Baby-Photos-Family-Siblings-Sister-Love-2A newborn with a toddler for a big sister can often be a challenge when it comes to photos, but between Emerson’s chill attitude and Harper’s excitement for being involved in pictures, there was no trouble whatsoever. We got some sweet, sleepy baby pictures (seriously, those eyelashes though), some bright smiles and adorable pouts from the tot, and of course, snuggly mommy and daddy with new baby photos. It was an absolute joy to share these images with the Cassy and Michael yesterday, and I can’t wait to see the prints as they arrive.

Simple photos of the newest moments are my favorite thing about newborn sessions – no frilly outfits or cheesy props needed. There is just nothing like capturing all the baby goodness while they are at their smallest. Congratulations, Cassy, Michael, and Harper on your new arrival!

Portraits: elizabeth’s sitting session, green bay, wisconsin

Green-Bay-Infant-Child-6-months-studio-family-photographyElizabeth is the happiest baby. She is always full of giggles and smiles, never nervous to be held by friends and family who love her snuggly nature. Elizabeth was eight months for her sitting session and everyone was unsure how it would go that day because she had missed her nap and just gotten over a sickness. We assured them that we could always reschedule, but decided to give Lizzie a little time to adjust first. In no time, she was back to her happy self – giggling, sticking out her tongue, and flashing the bright smile she inherited from daddy. I love photographing little ones at the sitting stage because of how much personality comes out (it’s also one of the last stages before they become master crawlers, and can sneak away from us!) Can’t wait to watch you grow, Baby Elizabeth!

Portraits: welcome baby vicent, newborn photos

Green-Bay-Newborn-Baby-Photos-Family-Boy-Natural-Neutral-Studio-CuteIf you’re like me, the chilly days that have settled in this past week have made you feel the need to get extra cozy. I’ve been thinking about heavy quilts, good books, and strong cups of coffee. And if those things don’t quite warm you up, how about a new baby boy born just before Christmas day, swaddled in fur and his mama’s arms?

Baby Vicent was born December 20th, to Tiffany and Carlos. He was ten days new for his first photos with us.  He did such a good job and slept through his entire session, just waking to eat.  Baby Vicent is surrounded by so much love by all his family here in the state and by his other half of the family in Spain who can’t wait to meet him. In the meantime, we’re so glad that they’ll have these early photos of this tiny boy to remember how small he was as he grows bigger. Congratulations to entire family!

Portraits: welcome baby lennox, newborn photos

Green_Bay_Newborn_Baby_Photos_Family_Girl_Studio_Cute_HeadbandAs it gets colder outside, we all start to cling to things that makes us feel cozy. Sometimes that’s a chestnut praline latte or a new wool scarf, but today let it be these snuggly newborn photos of baby Lennox. Nothing like a little new baby squish to remind us of thankfulness as we ease our way into the upcoming holiday week.

Lennox did a great job for her session. She was three weeks new, but arrived early and small, so she was perfect. She liked the white noise and drifted off peacefully as we moved her around and positioned her tiny fingers. Katie and Kyle made the trip down to Green Bay from Door County (my family home) for their newborn session and we’re glad they did. Congratulations, Katie and Kyle!

Portraits: welcome baby charlotte, newborn photos

Green_Bay_Newborn_Baby_Photos_Family_Girl_Studio_CreativeCharlotte Aurora, what a perfect name. Charlotte was just the sweetest little girl for her session. She was sleepy and settled and didn’t mind us posing and wrapping her up. She snuggled into mom and dad for family photos and just opened her eyes now and then (as if she had to check up on us and see what was going on).

Ideal newborn session age is 5-14 days, and Charlotte was perfectly in this window which means she was flexible enough to try out all sorts of poses (including the cute “froggy” pose at the top that I adore). Emily was smart about planning Charlotte’s session this summer so we could prepare to meet their needs and keep space open in our busy October schedule when baby girl was due to arrive.

Emily and Graham are the most relaxed new parents. They fawn over Charlotte, talk to her, and play with her. Together they are attentive without being guarded, and it’s pretty wonderful. Congratulations on your new arrival, Emily and Graham!

Portraits: welcome baby elizabeth

Green_Bay_Newborn_Baby_Photos_Family_Girl_Studio_CuteWe’ve been waiting on little Elizabeth and counting down the days since she was first announced in fall.  Since then there have been maternity pictures, baby showers, and a new home with a nursery decorated just for her.  Baby Elizabeth showed up into a world already in love with her. <3

Elizabeth’s session was so fun for us because at nearly nine pounds she was the perfect sleepy, squishy baby, settling easily into poses. She liked being rocked and snuggled and wrapped up tightly.  All our new babies in spring were boys, so we were excited to start the summer with a baby girl (break out the pink wraps and headbands!) Elizabeth couldn’t have been sweeter, and we can’t wait to see her again!
