Dulce

You have your mommy’s eyes and your daddy’s smile, but your sweet little personality is all your own.  Will you be a doctor, or an artist?  Will you be funny or serious, outgoing or shy?  Will you travel the world or put down strong roots in one place?  Only time will tell.  But for now, we’re so happy you’re our darling little dulce.

Little Seedling

You’re growing so fast, little one.  When we first brought you home from the hospital, you were so tiny, so helpless.  But look at you now–sitting up, and even standing!  Your personality is starting to blossom; you smile all the time now, and you love to explore the world around you.  I can hardly wait to see the places you’ll go.

You are obsessed with your toes right now…

And everything is new and fascinating.

You make everyone around you so happy.

What did we do with ourselves before you came along?  You’ve made us so complete.

Beautiful Boy

I’ve had the song “Beautiful Boy” in my head all day, and I can think of no better title for this post.  This couple is blessed with not one, but two beautiful boys.  I can only imagine the fun and trouble that these two will get into together when little L is old enough.

This photo makes me smile, because it’s so adorably typical of photos with newborns and a toddler sibling.  Big brother P allowed us to place little brother on his chest, but would not hold him with his hands, lol.  Still so cute, and I love it because that’s who he is right now.

Luminous

Their love for each other and their baby outshines the sun.

Nia and Jason are such a cute couple.  I loved how playful they were, always smiling and laughing with each other during their maternity photo session.

What to wear for a maternity session?  I love the maternity dress that Nia wore; I think maxi dresses are a pretty and elegant way to show off that baby bump.

Nia, you are luminous.

Bundle of Love

Sweet little Isabel, adored by everyone who meets her – even the family pet!  I love when the whole family, including the dog, are involved in a newborn photography session.

I’m always amazed at how pets often seem to instinctively understand what is going on when a baby comes into the family.

This particular pup was especially loving towards the baby.  So sweet!

Safety is always first of course when it comes to newborn photos with pets; sometimes dogs may not realize their own size, or may try to stand up suddenly if they don’t understand what they are supposed to do.  If the parents are ever unsure of whether or not their dog will be able to stay put, I like to put baby in a basket for added safety, and both parents stand on either side within arms reach.

This is my favorite kind of mother and baby picture.

I remember my husband and I looking at each other this very same way when our daughter was born; it was hard to believe that we created such a beautiful little being.

I think it is fascinating how babies mimic facial expressions.  You can see Isabel making the same expression as her mama in this picture.

I also amazed at how newborns, only days old, already know who their mama and daddy are.

One of the things I love about this photo is that the nightgown little Isabel is wearing was actually worn by her mama when she was a baby.  How sweet of grandma to save that piece of clothing for her.

Look at that little smile!

Happiness on the Way

Gosh I just love being a maternity and newborn photographer.  For a moment I get to share along in the joy and anticipation of a new life with expectant parents, and it is so sweet.  Pregnancy photos commemorate a very special time in a couple’s lives, and I am proud to be a part of that.

Could this couple be any cuter???
