I was very excited and nervous at the same time as the Meek Twins were my very first set of twins. Lyncoln and Lyla were so cute but definitely a different challenge. They kept mom and I laughing though as we would get one calmed down and the other would get upset but in the end I think we were able to get some pictures that mom and dad can look back on and enjoy. We were also able to do a film for this session and I am so excited that I am able to offer these to my newborn and fresh48 clients. Here are some of my favorites plus her film.
I love newborn sessions, but this one was extra special to me. Andrew and Katie are some dear friends. They came to visit us in the hospital when we had our oldest, then when they had their oldest we had moved away. So even though I didn’t get to actually go to the hospital for their second I was able to capture her newborn pictures.
I love newborn lifestyle, it is a more relaxing setting and you don’t have to leave your home. You also only need to have one or 2 rooms in the home picture ready which takes a little pressure off the new mom. Especially since one of those rooms is usually the nursery.
First off what is a Fresh 48 session you ask? I get this question a lot. With this session I come to you Hospital room, Birth Center, or Home with in the first 48 hours of birth. This is usually done with in the first 12 hours and it is meant to capture the very newest moments in your life and your newborn’s life. This can be used to help capture the moments when siblings, grandparents, and or Aunts and Uncles meet baby for the very first time. It is meant to capture the first few hours of your newborn’s life without having your entire Labor and birth captured.
I am happy to announce that starting in August of 2018 I will start offering this service to all my clients. Because of the fact that I would need to be on call for these type of sessions I will only be taking a limited few of these specific sessions. I am so very excited about these sessions. There is just something about the newborn smell and just the everything about those first 24 to 48 hours of a baby’s life that makes me walk away thinking about adding another.
This year for my daughters 4th birthday we decided on a fairy princess tea party session and we asked 2 of her friends if they wanted to join us. We had so much fun we went out to Lake Runnymede Conservation Area to have her session and with the moss hanging from the trees it just gave it a magical look. I want to give a special shout out and thank you to Addy and Julie for joining us for this session and to their mamas Maria and Nicole for bringing them out to play. By play I mean that is really what we did we just had a small play date and I took pictures. Thanks for a great session girls!!!
Guinevere Linda was 12 days new when we were able to do her in-home newborn lifestyle session. Baby G has such a wonderful big sister. Elizabeth was super excited to have her picture taken. Baby G’s mom has a special place in my heart, we were in the same Sorority in College she was my daughter. It has been so fun to see how far she has come since Jennifer and I first became friends. She has a wonderful husband, 2 beautiful daughters, and she also runs her very own Music Therapy business in Indianapolis (Dynamic Music Therapy). They also do music classes for little ones. Basically she is an awesome boss babe! Thank you Jennifer for letting me come in and hang with your wonderful family for a little while one of these days we will get all 4 of our kiddos together to play!
