There is nothing quite like a little mommy and me time, especially when you have more than one child. An hour together is heavenly, just the two of you being able to spend a few moments of uninterrupted time is special. I believe this is what makes a milestone session. Babies have a special bond with their mother. There are so many cute props and things to remember your baby turning one. When it is all over, who does your child want to see in those images with them? The answer will always be you.
Below are a few of my favorites from a recent milestone session. All of these photos were made in my guest room. I have used this room for several sessions now and I like the way it photographs. The softness, the light.. When it is hot and sticky this summer, this is an option for you!
After becoming friends on Instagram, I finally got to meet Whitney in person! Whitney is a very talented photographer here in the Orlando area and she is just as sweet and lovely in person as I had imagined she would be! She also has the cutest little family and they had recently added a new baby boy to their crew. I remember those days with two small babies! Enjoy those precious little boys of yours!!
Below are a few of my many favorites from this adorable family session!
A sweet little babe at 8 weeks. Oh, how his parents adore this tiny little man. I hope you can feel the love in these images!
In the thick of it with these two little ones! All the snuggles and smiles that come with six months. Baby turned lady and the assertion of independence that come with two years. Believe it or not, these are days that will surely be missed. Soak in every single bit of it!
This adorable baby boy came a bit earlier than expected and he is so sweet, he just melted me! He was just 5 lbs for these photos. So tiny!! Ashley is a fellow photographer and is very talented. You can check her out and give her some love at Ashley Comeens Photography!
I am always a little nervous when photographing other photographers, but working with another creative person is really so much fun! Ashley and Andrew are already the most loving parents. It was so wonderful to just watch them stare at this sweet little soul with such adoration. My heart is so full when I look back at these photos!
Baby Sydney at 5 weeks. I really cannot get enough of her spiky black hair. She is so adorable!! It was pretty dark and started raining when I arrived for this in-home session so we moved out to their super cute bohemian styled patio. I loved everything about it and the pups even hung out for a few photos! Enjoy a few of my favs below!
I love all the newborn details. It often hurts to remember how long ago it was for me now, but also awakens me to the fact that these are the things I would want to never forget. A tiny warm baby on your chest. Drowsy little eyelids, fingers wrapped in your hair, open mouth sleeping in your arms. It's real and its raw and it's truly breathtaking.
Meet baby John. He is really so sweet and deeply loved. This squishy little guy just melted me!
I have really loved having the opportunity to meet and photograph so many new and familiar families this year. It is an absolute privilege to meet your new babies and see your little ones as they grow. These experiences bring me so much joy. I am overwhelmingly grateful for each and every one of you!
The sweetest family and the cutest little baby boy that just wanted to be held. I remember how hard the newborn stage is but truly, there is nothing quite like those snuggly newborn babies. Here are just a few of my many favorites from this beautiful in-home newborn session.
I felt this was a match made in heaven when I stepped into this gorgeous home. This momma is a fellow lover of neutrals and clearly speaks my aesthetic love language! Sweet baby Turner was also a little dream baby during our session, so happy and alert at 8 weeks. Also, their cute pup was not one to be left out of the photos. He happily sat or laid down for photos without even being asked to come over! Below are just a few of my many favorites from this in home newborn session!
I love seeing the newborns I have had the opportunity to photograph as older babies. They are smiling, moving, and really, as this momma put it, "in prime cuteness". This little beach babe loved the salt water and of course, eating the sand. This is such a fun age! Nora was pretty darn adorable, with her one tooth grin, trying to put anything and everything into her mouth as she was cutting more teeth. Her favorite part of the morning was sitting in the water and having the waves crash into her. No fear of the water here! Thank you for trusting me with your beautiful memories.
And please, give me all the sunrise sessions with babies at the beach!!!
