{Final Days} Savannah Newborn Photographer

chevron_teal

Emily contacted me in late January about a maternity session for February. Pregnant with twins and wanting to be home with her parents for the birth, Emily and her husband, Kyle, wanted to celebrate her final days in the Savannah area.

I love shooting in downtown Savannah – such an iconic, gorgeous city loaded with history in every direction. Rugged brick buildings offset by gentle carpets of moss and climbing ivy, rough cobblestone streets softened by rows of oak trees ladled with delicate spanish moss. I have truly never lived in such an amazing area. And while I have a few “standard” places I like to utilize, there is a rush in wandering aimlessly and stumbling upon a hidden gem (or two), tucked quietly away in this bustling town.

I met Kyle & Emily at their apartment and we drove together to Broughton Street. Our first stop was one of my favorite places, this stunning bridge. Every time I go the environment is just a bit different, and is always a welcome surprise.

Emily picked out the cutest outfits for herself … they matched her cheerful and bubbly personality so perfectly.

These two are so in love, it’s not even funny.

Adorable.

Umm, yeah. My favorite from their session. Hands down.

Gah. I just die for a good black and white, don’t you?

One of the aspects that is so fabulous about Savannah is all of the little squares, there are several scattered throughout downtown. So quaint.

Emily and Kyle, thank you so much for the opportunity to photograph your maternity session! I had such a fun time and enjoyed exploring this gorgeous city together. Thank you for trusting me with such an important milestone in your lives!

{Graduate} Richmond Hill Child Photographer

There are times when someone’s story, their journey, catches you so completely off-guard. From the outside looking in it’s hard to imagine that anything could be wrong, or could have gone so horribly wrong. And while Baby H.’s entrance into this world over a year ago was fraught with intense emotion, he is a perfect reminder of what happens when life goes so beautifully right.

And now I sit, writing his one year blog post.

A graduate.

I still remember meeting his sweet parents before Baby H. was even born. She was the most lovely mom-to-be, absolutely radiant with love. Check out her fun maternity blog post here. And Baby H.? Honestly one of the cutest newborns I’ve ever captured with the most amazing, luscious skin.

Baby H’s birth story was nothing short of incredible. You can read all about his mom’s fight to live and see some of his adorable newborn images here.

Baby H. not only rocked his newborn session, but again at seven months. His one year smash session did not disappoint. 🙂

Mom is from Australia, so Baby H. was photographed with these two little guys at all of his sessions. Such a great way to document your child’s growth.

Baby H. always had a smile for me.

Pooler Child Photographer

This face. Have you ever?

He already sports a bow tie with such style.

It just wouldn’t be a first birthday session with a cake smash, would it? I love them, such a perfect way to celebrate the end of their year with me.

Things started out pretty well …

Pooler Child Photographer 2

… and then Baby H. started to have second thoughts.

When this image popped up for the first time on my screen I laughed until my belly hurt.

True story.

Who honestly feels this way about cake?!? 😛

Richmond Hill Child Photographer 3

Needless to say, the session ended fairly quickly after this and there was little (if any) smashing involved.

But Baby H. was a good sport right up until the end.

Savannah Child Photographer 3

Mom and Dad – thank you, thank you, thank you, for trusting me with capturing Baby H.’s first year. It was such a pleasure to have met you and I am glad to call you friends. Baby H. is precious beyond measure. Thank you for sharing him with me.

{Celebrating One} Richmond Hill Child Photographer

green_floral

I love celebrating one. One-year-olds have either just started to walk or are almost there, tottering on chunky thighs with that adorable stiff, wide-legged stance. Their personalities are big and unashamed, their smiles deafening and tears, unforgiving. Turning one marks the end of babyhood and the beginning of childhood, a bridge that most parents find difficult to watch their babies cross, but a right of passage that cannot be denied.

As every mom and dad knows, it’s a big deal.

I like capturing big deals. 😉

I first met Karen and her sweet family in late January, in celebration of Baby E.’s first birthday. The whole lot of them were incredibly tender-hearted and kind, their children polite and soft spoken. Karen and I had spent the weeks prior excitedly planning for E.’s session, and she had selected the most beautiful, feminine and fun outfits for her. I simply loved all of them.

Ruffled bloomers?

I die.

RIchmond Hill Child Photographer

Love her tiny smile here, and such lovely skin!

Pooler Child Photographer

And even though Baby E. was curious and boisterous like all one-year olds, there was something so purely magical once she stilled.

I mean, that face! Who could resist it? Mmmm, not me.

Savannah Child Photographer

Of course, we had to party a little early. What’s a celebration without a hat?

(And of course a bit of sass and pearls to go with it :))

RIchmond Hill Child Photographer 1

When it comes to cake smashes, some birthday kiddos dive right in like true cake-eating pros, some cry the moment their hands get dirty, and others aren’t quite sure what to make of the whole thing. Baby E. fell in the latter category. 😉

Haha! This face!!

And I’m supposed to … ???

Pooler Child Photographer 1

Once Baby E. figured out that being “forced” to eat cake wasn’t too bad, her face definitely lit up and her attitude changed to one of sheer excitement and happiness.

Savannah Child Photographer 1

I’d say this will go down in the books as a successful smash!

RIchmond Hill Child Photographer 2

Karen, thank you again for bringing Baby E. to me to capture such a fun, important milestone in her life. It was truly a joy to have met you and your family. I wish you the best of luck and look forward to working with you again in the future!

Baby L. is the newest member of MMP’s Tiny Toes plan!! She came in today for her 3 month session. Mama isn’t on Facebook so I promised I’d post a sneak here on my blog. I just adore this precious little girl! We captured so many terrific images today … this is one of my favorites. So innocent and sweet!

{How Life Works} Richmond Hill Newborn Photographer

blue_plaid

It’s funny how life tends to work out the way it’s meant to all along. A last minute cancelation by another photographer brought the Norris family to me. Thankfully my schedule was flexible enough to accommodate them last minute, and I met adorable Baby P. in early January. Katie was as friendly and joyful as she seemed through emails and her husband, Kyle, was outgoing and cheerful. Like all two year olds, precocious, energetic big sister B. eagerly told me all about her new brother and inquisitely peeked behind doors, growing excited upon discovering my prop room (But who could blame her? It’s a treasure, truly).

Once their session was finished, Kyle and Katie mentioned how happy they were with how the situation came to pass. Panicked they’d be unable to find a professional photographer with such short notice, they both agreed that “everything happens for a reason” and that they couldn’t have picked a better choice in me. I definitely left smiling ear to ear that day. 🙂

Not only are the Norris’ friendly beyond compare, but did I mention how gorgeous this family is?

Adore this stolen moment.

The more I photograph newborns the more comfortable I become when they decide not to (ahem) sleep. Truthfully, when I first started, seeing the eyes of newborn staring back at me made me sweat! But now I love to take advantage of their tiny awake periods – if only for reasons such as this: bonding with daddy.

RIchmond Hill Newborn Photographer 1

Eventually the heat, white noise and Mama’s milk got to Baby P. and off he dozed … such a handsome little guy.

Savannah Newborn Photographer 1

Like so many other babies, Baby P. loved being swaddled. This blue set-up is one of my favorites for little boys.

Unfortunately, this was my first and last session with the Norris family – they are off to start new adventures. Although it was chance that brought us together, I will be forever grateful I had the opportunity to commemorate this important milestone for them.

Best of luck Kyle, Katie, Lady B. and Mr. P. – I hope our paths cross again.
