Introducing Charlie Introducing Charlie

Newborns

Charlie came into the studio for his newborn session at just 11-days-old. So sweet and so tiny, I remember thinking that he was the best early surprise his parents could have asked for!

Although Charlie arrived before his parents could come into the studio for their consultation, I’d been looking forward to working with his family for a while because they are good friends with another wonderful client of mine. When Charlie’s momma contacted me, I was excited to meet her, but also excited at the idea that Charlie and Jack would be best friends just like their moms! Although they are a year apart, I can only imagine what adventures they will have as they get older and spend time together because of their mommas’ friendship.

Charlie is such a sweet baby and it was such a treat to capture his first portraits. During every newborn session, I have a goal list that I write ahead of time to make sure I get all of the images baby’s parents asked for, but also pictures that I envision as well. As long as I’m on track, I’ll stop and take breaks to just soak in the little baby in my arms. My time with Charlie was no exception! His fuzzy head of hair, sweet cheeks and luscious lips were the best to look at. I can’t wait to see what a beautiful baby, toddler and little boy Charlie grows to be!

Liz and Chuck, thank you so much for brining Charlie into my Scottsdale studio for his newborn portraits. I can’t wait to watch him grow over the next year! Here are a few peeks from Charlie’s session:

Welcome to the World Quinn Welcome to the World Quinn

The first time I met Quinn’s parents at the studio for their baby photography consultation, I knew that I was going to love their daughter. Kate and Alex are such a sweet, down-to-earth couple. They immediately felt like old friends. I love when families come into my studio and we immediately connect. What I do is so much more than snapping some cute pictures… clients truly become a part of my extended family. Parents let me into their lives during the most intimate and special time; they trust me as a newborn photographer to take care of their baby and capture what will always be their baby’s first portraits. That means the world to me. Kate and Alex, I’m so honored that you chose me to capture Quinn’s newborn session and her entire first year. I can’t wait to watch your baby grow!

I met Quinn for her newborn session when she was just 10 days old. She had a head full of hair (most people know this is rare for newborns) and the sweetest little lips. Throughout her session, I found myself holding her and just…soaking her in. Quinn was a dream throughout her session; she barely made a peep and let me do all of the poses that I do with newborn babies. We got some beautiful pictures in her nursery color scheme, capturing her little details and even incorporating her dad’s love for Notre Dame. Her session couldn’t have come together more beautifully and I’m excited to share it with you on the blog today! Here’s a few portraits from Quinn’s newborn session:

This blog post is a special one. For the past three years, my wonderful friend Jaime has captured our family before our big move, after our big move and when we welcomed our furry baby Penny. This time, it was my chance to photograph something special for her! Early last year, I got a text from Jaime telling me that she and her husband Ryan were having a baby, almost right after she found out! I was SO excited for her and keeping her secret was the hardest! Time flew by and it was such a joy watching the two of them announce it to the world, reveal baby’s gender and then joyfully welcome their sweet Annabelle into their family. Finally in September, days after Annabelle was born, I traveled to California for her newborn session.

Meeting Annabelle was so sweet for me. For months, I wondered who she would look like and what kind of personality she would have and then there she was- right in front of me! She was more beautiful and sweet than I could have imagined. Annabelle was a chunky newborn and boy do I love myself a chunky baby! She had the softest and sweetest baby smell; I snuggled her for a good part of the day. The best thing about Annabelle is that she was content. While she wasn’t sure about sleeping for me, she was happy to be there, wide-eyed, watching me try to soothe her to sleep, haha!

Thank you so much Jaime and Ryan for having me capture such a special part of your legacy. It is such an honor when another photographer and a friend asks me to take their baby’s first portraits!

I’d like to introduce Annabelle Rose, at just 10 days old:

Introducing Poppy Introducing Poppy

It’s the beginning of the New Year and of course I am sitting here thinking about all of the things I did and wish I had done in 2017. On my list of regrets is how little I blogged last year. With social media, it is so easy to upload a quick picture with a short caption and share. I forget how fun it is to share the whole story!

Months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting little Poppy for her Scottsdale newborn photography session. Poppy was actually a little bit older than most of the newborns I have at the studio, but that didn’t change a thing. Even at 18 days old, Poppy was just a sleepy little newborn baby who snuggled right up. Let’s be honest- half the reason I am a newborn photographer is because I love to hold brand new babies!

My favorite thing about Poppy was her full head of hair. This is a little rare for newborns and I had so much fun adding in little headbands to show it all off! Poppy is one lucky little girl, with two very attentive parents to dote on her. Thank you so much Lael and Chase for choosing me to capture your little girl as she grows; I can’t wait to see her soon for her 6 month session!

Here’s a little peek at Poppy’s Scottsdale newborn session:

Mabry Lucille – 8 Days New Mabry Lucille – 8 Days New

Something that I’ve realized recently is how much I love sharing my work for others to enjoy. However, it’s all too easy to slap a picture on Instagram and forget to share what a whole session looks like! Today, I’m excited to share a recent Phoenix newborn photo session. World, meet Mabry Lucille, just eight days new!

I spent time with Mabry’s parents and brother earlier in the year at their maternity session in Gainey Ranch, a place they like to spend time at. I was so excited for Mabry to arrive to see who she looked like and what her big brother, Ashton, would think of her. I can truly say that she did not disappoint! Mabry Lucille has the sweetest little disposition. One of my favorite things about her is all of the sweet little noises she makes in her sleep and the way her soft, dark hair lays perfectly on her head.

Every newborn session reminds me that I love what I get to do for a living. Honestly, it’s hard to think of it as work. Thank you to Talissa, Patrick, Ashton and Mabry for inviting me to capture such a special moment for your family. I can’t wait to see you all for Mabry’s 6 month portraits!

Here’s a little peek at Mabry’s session:
