I was thrilled to meet this gorgeous three month old baby boy for his newborn photoshoot last weekend. Sometimes people say to me “I missed my window for newborn photos!” when they call me and their baby is two, three, four… five months old. I always tell them not to worry, that doing photos any time in the first year of their baby’s life will be fantastic. Of course I want to get started early so we can tell the story of your baby’s first year fully (I have a package of a few photoshoots over the course of a baby’s first year that’s really fun to do), but any time you want to do photos is a great time to do it.
I mean, look at this cutie patootie – 3 1/2 months old and absolute perfection. I mean, the rolls on the back of his neck? Those tootsie toes? Just divine.
Even through rain, snow, sleet or hail, your newborn photoshoot will happen
This may sound weird, but I love making my way to see families after big snowstorms. They’re snuggled in their cozy house with their new baby, and I navigate the ridiculous Boston roads to make my way there – happily leaving my own wild animals at home… and I arrive at their house, to the warmth, the love, cuddles… I just truly love my job. I adored tromping through the wet slush on the way to this newborn photoshoot, knowing I’d arrive somewhere just bursting with love.
Because guys, even his knuckles have dimples! Squeeeeeeal.
And even better, mama said she’s considering canvases! Mmmm wall consulting, my new jam. Thanks again for having me, I loved meeting you guys and your sweet new boy.
I loved getting to see these girls three times this year! What a treat to get involved with a Baby’s First Year package with these two adorably fun sisters. I can’t believe the year flew by so quickly.
Look who’s one!
Wonderful to see you guys!
I am going to tease you with these first few photos because you’re not really going to believe how adorable this little girl is when I show you her face. So I’m starting with her 13 month old arms. Because wrist rolls? Knuckle dimples? People, we got it all here.
GA! Told you!!
I just adore this exchange of expressions with Mama:
And now, because you haven’t gotten enough adorableness – it’s tub time.
And some snuggles with Grandma, of course.
Just adored every minute of this shoot, guys. Thanks so much for having me.
We did these photos back in the end of June! It’s the beginning of October! How did I get so behind?? So sorry – and this is crazy because these two boys have the best bellies, the cutest grins – look at these little six month old cutie pies! How could anybody leave them to be unblogged all summer?
It’s been six months since I last saw this little dude, and he’s been keeping busy learning to smile and be amazing. Look at that GRIN!
Even a brief moment of crisis about his puffs couldn’t get this guy down:
Elmo, you’re just too much!
It was such a treat to see you again, sweet G! Happy six months!
Oh we had fun! I loved coming back to see this sweet girl for her 6 month pictures – feels like yesterday we did her newborn pictures (she’s doing my baby’s first year package – yay).
She loves looking at herself in the mirror:
Making funny faces with mama:
And just all around being pretty stinkin’ cute:
Sophie the giraffe made an appearance, of course…
Oh, and her daddy said her little noises sounded like a goat when she was really little – and the nickname stuck. Here she nibbling on her very own goat :)
Look at that balance!
So fun to see you guys!
I always love to play outside. Sometimes New England weather doesn’t cooperate, but sometimes it does. Sometimes small people think the grass tickles their toes too much, or the distracting wind is blowing in the trees too much… but sometimes it just works. You never know.
I’ve known these two cutie boys since big brother K was just a couple of months old. And this is little brother C’s fourth photoshoot – he’s doing the five shoots in his first year package just like his big brother did (one of my Baby’s First Year packages), which is great because it means we can do things like take big brother K’s 5 year pictures at the same time as we do C’s 9 month pictures.
That means we get two (adorable brother) birds with one (really fun, jumping, crazy, loving photoshoot) stone.
Aaaand you guys know my thoughts on color vs. b&w (see halfway down this page), but sometimes it takes over and I just have to blog it.
These guys got a gift certificate for a photoshoot from their baby’s fabulous godparents, and I was so excited to come document this little 8 month old guy and his kitty at home last weekend. What a perfect little dude.
Nothing beats a little applesauce.
And your favorite and mine… Sophie made an appearance!
Wonderful to meet you guys!
Ruh-roh. Sorry. I hate it when this happens.
I overshot these two gorgeous girls a few weeks ago, just a couple of days shy of their first birthday. I kid (a little), because I guess no parent thinks there’s any such thing as too many photos of their children, but I do think it makes it really hard on the parents when there are too many photos to consider. I tried, I swear I tried, but I couldn’t cut the gallery down below 93 final images. Crazy! I usually deliver families 50-75 finished (what I’d consider “frame-worthy”) images at the end of a shoot, and that can even be overwhelming, I know. And then when a family asks me to make them a blog post, I like to pick my favorite ten or so pictures for the blog and Facebook. But now, here I was looking at these photos and I had the same problem I know parents have – I couldn’t cut my own list of favorites down.
So here goes, my favorite 18 photos from the first year photoshoot with these two incredible little ladies…
P.S. I know exactly what happened, by the way, in case anyone is curious. I was allowed to keep shooting! These guys got fussy towards the end of the shoot and needed a snack, so they got in their high chairs (adorable – so many chances for pictures) and then finished up, after that, with standing by a big beautiful window smooshing Cheerios into their mouths. Of course I had to keep taking pictures – those wrists? Those fat ankles? I mean, come on. You can’t blame me…
Yikes, correction! When I first posted these pics I mentioned that these two had been in the NICU in the early days of their life and I was completely wrong. (No excuses allowed! But I realized I had just spoken to another family that same week about their twins being in the NICU and I misremembered the conversation.) I’d mentioned that these two sweet little ladies spent time in the NICU, but their mama just (very kindly) corrected me! So correction: these two spent no time in the NICU – I don’t want to confuse anyone.
These lovely twin ladies were three months old in the middle of June when we took these photos, and they couldn’t be more perfect. I am so in love with all their expressions – especially the ones they give each other :)
This guy is moving around like it’s his job. Nine months old, and nothing stops this guy. He’s just perfection, and I loved seeing him again for another shoot from his Baby’s First Year package.
You really can’t beat the daddy squishing face moments, or the super happy reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar with mama. I do love the nibbling Sophie the giraffe one, though, and my very favorite might be the one on the bed as he laughs at both his parents.
Really fun to see you guys again!
One quickie 4 wk old photoshoot with my extraordinary baby niece? There’s nothing more perfect. We did it last weekend, and the shoot was quick, but the girl was a dream. I am so in love with this little lady. She’s incredible. And she’s getting rolls! Eeek!
Oh boy, these guys are nearly six months old and just perfection. There’s one blue-eyed boy and one brown-eyed boy, and both of them have an incredible twinkle in those eyes. I think maybe they can’t wait to get moving…
I think my number one favorite picture the one where they’re lying on their backs, looking at each other. That and the one of their mama leaning over them, touching their bellies…So sweet. I’m also really loving the one where mama’s kissing T’s cheek. Oh and I just peeked back at the one of them in their dress shirts, all crunched up next to each other, showing off their knuckle dimples.
Thanks so much for having me, I loved meeting the boys!
Oh, the wrist rolls! Oh the expressions! I got to spend Sunday morning with this fantastic little guy, and now I’m going back through these pictures and I can’t choose a favorite. I think I have to go with the moment when he was really having a tough time (he was tired) and having this exhaustion fit — lying on his back, wailing up at his parents, who were soothing him with his teddy bear. The bear started to do the trick, and he rolled over onto his tummy and looked at me, kneeling by the side of the bed… and gave me the biggest grin. That’s this first picture below here. Isn’t it wonderful? It was just this moment of a wicked, sweet, darling smile. Back to exhaustion soon after, but boy this guy has a great grin. I’ll let you make your own choices for favorites, but I’ll finish my commentary by saying it was such fun to meet this guy.
