Remember that one time, at band camp, when I actually put up a blog post? Well I have been in band (my junior high band actually played in Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles!), but never really to actual band camp. And I have written blog posts, but obviously, as you can see, it’s uhhhh, been awhile. So here’s to posting! Lets see if we can make this an actual regular thing.

One of the fun parts about my job is that I’ve been doing it so long, people actually ask me to travel to photograph them. As in get on a plane … and fly somewhere else. With my camera. Who knew!? A lovely friend of mine was having a baby about a year and a half ago (don’t judge, it takes a long time for me to put words on a computer) and asked my friends Sarah Ulrich of Uniquely You Photo , Heather Woodward of Artful Heart Photography , and myself to come to Nashville to photograph her newborn. And what did we say? We said YES! My part of this experience was to document the natural light (more lifestyle) version of this session. And jump on her bed with her kids. Because, well, I’m good at that. So here you go, my beautiful friend Heather Lattimer of Frogs and Faeries Photography… well actually not her, because she wouldn’t let us photograph her, buuuuut, her beautiful children and awesome husband:

Hey check it! I wrote the book on (ok article) on newborn photography safety.

Newborn safety can often be overlooked — I mean hey, look at all those adorably posed and stuffed newborns out there, yet it is very crucial to me as a professional dealing with very tiny ones. I take pride in providing my clients with not only amazing images, but images captured safely. Please make sure that whoever you hire to be your newborn photographer does the same. Feel free to click on the image below for some seriously adorable newborn images, as well as information on how I like to keep it safe both before and during your newborn session:

I have been photographing this beautiful family since oldest sister was born. They always choose my Baby Plan package which means I get to see everyone at least three times in one year … my favorite! Baby plans offer clients a discounted rate on session fees as well as prints/product, plus you are guaranteed documentation of your growing baby throughout the year.

These two sisters absolutely cracked me up during their session. Who knew sisters could display such similar personalities starting from one week old … Check out docile vs. cheeky!


Cheeky Baby!
