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!

Portraits: tori’s one year session, green bay botanical gardens

Tori is full of personality! Just a moment with her and you’ll realize how closely she watches everything around her. She learns quickly how things work, how they go together, how they come apart (and, when possible, how to get inside). Tori makes people work for her sweet smiles, but the moment she brightens up, we all smile along with her.

We had the most beautiful evening to document Tori’s first Birthday at Green Bay Botanical Gardens. It was mid-May so the fruit blossoms were still on the trees and the fields were filled with tulips. Spring is such a gorgeous time for family sessions like these! Happy First Birthday, Tori!

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: 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!

Newborns: welcome new baby hazel

Newborn photos are one of the most important photographic moments a family will ever have.  Many times people refer to weddings as the only once-in-a-lifetime event, but I want to offer up a little thought.  Although you will have many photos taken of your children throughout the years, you will never again have that week old baby – those first few moments as a family.  That is a once-in-a-lifetime event.

I many be a bit biased in thinking that Hazel is just about the sweetest little girl of all time (she is my goddaughter), but she really is just that wonderful.  She settled into the poses easily, and, although her little arms were incredibly strong, she let us move her about and lay her down without any fuss.  We are looking forward to seeing how much bigger she is by fourth of July weekend; by then the six pound, sleepy little girl will be something different altogether.  Welcome to the family, baby Hazel; we’ve been waiting for you! <3 <3 <3
