A gift of love and a blessed Christmas!

Several years ago when our grandson was born, my husband’s parents became great grandparents for the first time.  I remember my mother-in-law saying “what a gift it is to be a great grandparent and how blessed they are”.  I can only imagine how that would feel.   Over the years, several more babies have joined the extended family and I have had the pleasure of seeing how much joy it brings my in-laws.

Having said that, over the years I took on a personal project.  It was to take a photograph of all the great grandchildren together.  It was easy when the first two greats belonged to just one family.  But then two more greats arrived belonging to another family.  And since then two more greats have come along from two more families.   Now it involves four families.   Hmm – this project has become more challenging!  LOL

Two families have to travel and with all of these little ones growing up, everyone is always on the go.  Parents coming and going – so it takes a bit of preplanning to get all of them together at the same time.  This year everyone was going to my husband’s parents for Thanksgiving so I had the mom’s bring their little ones over here just beforehand (luckily, we live just a half mile apart) so that I could capture this year’s group shot.

Each Christmas as we watch the great grandparents open their framed print, which immediately replaces the previous years on their wall, we see their emotions and feel their pride and joy.  It is a reminder of what a blessed Christmas is.

Editing these few wintery shots reminds me that soon the holiday season will be here and we will be with family.  It will be our second year with Meadow being a part of the Christmas holidays.  It is hard to believe she has changed so much since last year.  Time passes so quickly that I was glad to have captured (the baby that is still in her) on this winter sleigh.

As parents and grandparents we are always celebrating all of the new things children learn to do and or master.  And yes of course we should, that is what parenting and grandparenting is all about.  But for anyone who knows me well, they would know that I love to capture the baby side of tots and preschool children.  These tender years pass by so quickly and before you know it they are gone forever.  I don’t always aim to edit that perfect shot where they are looking and smiling at me, but instead to choose the ones where those little innocent looks are seen – looks that will soon be gone forever.  Ones where their eyes show they are our babies and the looks that melt us.  These are the shots that I love and cherish.

So far she is still the family’s baby and we love her to the moon and back.

Last week I was very excited for this family to come back.

They were all full of smiles and excited to get her out of her car seat to introduce her.  Her name is Skye and she is absolutely beautiful.

  What a special time to capture some family memories they will cherish for a lifetime – Skye will be able to see how much she was loved when she arrived in the world!

Natural Newborn Sessions

Geared to capture images that will be cherished for years to come.

Babies are content and comfortable in positions that are real & natural – capturing the essence and beauty of who they are.

Shot in the warm, comfortable and dreamy lit studio, within the first few weeks after baby’s arrival.

Sessions are lead by baby –  approx 2 hours long , allowing time for mom’s to feed, change and care for them.

Advanced preparation is best.  Be in touch about two months prior to your baby’s due date, as babies don’t always arrive as scheduled.

Deposit  includes a “styling attire appointment”, done here at the studio (or over the phone for long distance travelers) about a month prior to baby arriving.

Styling appointments are fun,  removing mom’s stress as to what she and her family will wear the day of the session.   Mom’s are welcome to bring along any of your own items that they feel would be suitable or simply choose from the massive studio closet (filled with beautiful items for mom’s and children up to size 6) removing the need to go out and purchase new things.

Once baby arrives, the mom contacts the studio, and she can then choose a session date within the first couple weeks.

Package choice is only determined after the images have been viewed by the parents – generally one to two weeks after the session.

All packages include parents and siblings, with no additional charges to consider.

We feel there is nothing more beautiful than seeing a newborn being held in their mother’s arms and/or seeing the connection & emotion of their parents.

Summary of how it works:

Do the deposit – we will style the session – we will shoot the session with you, your baby & family – a gallery of images will be presented about two weeks later at which time a package choice can be determined.

Contact us and to begin planning your intimate newborn session.
