Waited So Long| Savannah Newborn Photographer

Beautiful Baby O’s birth story is quite remarkable, but what I love best of all is that her sweet Mama contacted me to book a session almost the minute she found out about her pregnancy. I distinctly remember Mama telling me that she just couldn’t imagine anyone else doing Baby O’s newborn portraits and man, I tell you, my heart filled up a bit more when she told me that.

Talk about the biggest compliment. Ever.

And then I had to wait. Like everyone else I suppose, but when you love clients like family that wait is hard! Really, really hard.

Most Moms have a pretty clear idea of what colors they’d like to use during their session and I asked Mama a few times (I like to be prepared and *ahem* buy a handful of new props for each newbie session), but she insisted we wait to see what Baby O’s coloring would be. It ended up being just the right answer because Mom’s selections were amazingly perfect for Little Miss O.

Another blog heavy. But it’ll be worth it, I promise.

Such a gorgeous Mom, inside and out. Trust me when I tell you that Baby O. is one lucky gal.

Ah! Such a beautiful family. I honestly love and admire how Mom and Dad speak to little Sis. It is with such love and respect.

Ok, so Miss A . is  such  a fun, adorable little girl. I’m giddy when I get to photograph her.

Definitely a favorite sibling shot. I swoon.

Am I allowed to swoon twice in one blog post?

I swoon.

Purple is such a great color on Baby O. And that hat!

Pooler, GA newborn photographer

Simply perfect. And yes, she did have “grumpy” eyebrows a lot. Already so serious.

So Miss O. was smiling all through her session when a)I didn’t have my camera and b)if I looked away. No joke my friends … this is the  last frame I took. But I got it, Stinker. 🙂

Mom and Dad, gosh! I just love you guys, consider you my friends. You’re incredible parents and I admire you both so much. Thank you for trusting me with your sweet babies and your cherished memories.

This is my niece and her family. Being here in Maine, we don’t get to see them much. It has been such a joy seeing these beautiful pictures of her and her family. Megan you do an awesome job!

Studio News! | Savannah Newborn Photographer

Yay!! So excited to finally start sharing some sneaks of the new studio here in Richmond Hill, Georgia. There are a few finishing touches to make, but we are almost ready for the grand re-opening on September 12, 2013!

First off, let me say that I give tremendous kudos to those photogs who shoot hotels and the like … think I’ll definitely be staying with portraiture! HA!

As you come up the stairs you’ll see this …

YES! … if it doesn’t make your heart beat faster, why do it?

I love my sweet scalloped chalkboard from TFJ Designs. It’s the little things, right?

Love this space. Still need to add a little tray to hold my Image Box samples. On the lookout for just the right one …

This grouping makes my heart sing! Table from Home Goods, owl and bird cage from Michael’s. FLW friends, don’t be too jealous that those stores are only 25 minutes away from me … lol.

{Love Me Some Baby G.} | Richmond Hill, GA Photographer

 

This adorable little face is one of the clients that was the most difficult to say goodbye to. Mom & Dad are such wonderful, amazing people and  after photographing Baby G. and their family for almost 2 years … well, you grow kind of attached.

So here’s Baby G. the first time I photographed him, when he was about 9 months old (right, Mama?). This was taken fairly early in my photography journey … Mom and Dad have come a long way with me. 🙂

Anyway, handsome little chunk …

Richmond Hill, GA child photographer

Here he is, over a year later, turning TWO!! Wait, I suppose I should stop now and warn you that this blog post will be a bit picture heavy. This session was just so fun, I honestly could post every last picture I took. Really.

RIchmond Hill photographer

Oh, that face, that smile, those toes …

Blocks are, clearly, totally awesome.

And when you’re a boy, playing with boxes is a given.

Sigh. I truly adore him.

Mom & Dad, you know how much I love you guys. I sincerely mean it when I say that I always enjoyed our time together and am thankful we’re now friends, too. Thank you for trusting me with so many of Baby G.’s memories … I’ll miss being the one to capture them.

{Makes Me A Little Melancholy} | Richmond Hill Photographer

It truly is melancholy when newborns come back to see me, especially if I haven’t seen them for over a year. On one hand I am excited to see how much they’ve grown, how much hair they have now, if they have kept any of their sweet baby features. On the other hand it makes me a tiny bit sad to think about how fast time flies, and I often reminisce about my own precious kiddos.

Lovely Miss C. was no exception. I would have recognized her from across the room in a heartbeat, she hadn’t changed much at all. Soft (almost) bald head, sweet pinky cheeks, gorgeous wide-eyes.

As she was then …

And a few favorites from her one year session …

Happy Birthday sweet girl.

‘Lil Miss Spitfire | Richmond Hill, GA Photographer

When fellow professional photographer, Heather Brouillette, of hay.LO Photography contacted me about a session for her 5 year old daughter, the first emotions I felt were being completely humbled, honored and excited. And then, as the session date grew closer, the nervousness set in. As a photographer I always want to give my clients the very best, but the bar is definitely set mighty high when a photographer (and a great one at that) becomes your client.

But truly, I had nothing to fear. Not only was Heather totally relaxed (and actually spent most of the time on a chair outside the studio, much to her daughter’s insistence), but gorgeous, spunky Miss H. was just awesome to work with … an absolute natural in front of the camera, a smile that lit up the room and a laugh that still warms my heart.

This will be another photo heavy blog post … just too many images that I can’t bear not to post for everyone to see.

Heather, thank you again so much. I had a wonderful time with the two of you and it was such a blessing to capture this time in Miss. H’s life. I am lucky to call you a friend.
