Get ready for some blogposts!! Our website is all fresh and updated (head on over to check it out www.mrdrewphotography.com) and we’ve got a new look for the blog and I’m excited to blog again. This blog has been long neglected and I’ve got lots to share! I figured we’d start with this sweet newborn session from about a month ago. We shot Kerrie & Tim’s wedding a few years ago and I was so excited to shoot the newborn session for their sweet little lady. Lot’s of people had been excitedly waiting for her arrival and she arrived right on time on her due date. I brought all the things needed to shoot this session right in their home and it just so happened we had a morning snow storm. I didn’t mind heading out in the snow, but I’m sure Kerrie & Tim were happy they were able to relax at home during the session.
Can you even handle the cuteness of her little face and bow! She feel asleep like a champ at the beginning of her session. She made me work for it during the second half of her session, but that is totally normal. Big shout out to my twister *twin sister* Mel, who came to visit Kerrie (they are teacher’s together) and be my assistant. Here is Mel helping to get her back to sleep when we moved upstairs to take some shots in the bedroom.
Tim enjoys woodworking and made these wooden letters himself. I am so impressed by his handiwork and it was just the sweetest thing, we had to take a photo with them spelling out her name. This was after she fought me some and had passed out again. It took some time, but I didn’t give up and we got her back to sleep! To end the session we did some shots with Mom & Dad holding Felicity. Can you even handle the cuteness here? She was out cold at this point and I just love her little expression. Every Mom needs a photo with their sweet baby like this one. I get that its hard to get in front of the camera right after having a baby but I promise you will cherish the images as they get older. We ended the session with some time with Dad. I love her expression looking up at Dad here.
I love shooting newborn sessions! Get in touch if you are pregnant and want to schedule your session. It’s best to have them in the planning process ahead of time, before your due date, so as soon as you deliver we can get them scheduled. I suggest scheduling them during the first 2 weeks after they are born. This is when they are still super sleepy and you can get all the sweet & snuggly poses. If it’s after the 2 week timeframe, don’t worry we can still document all the love, it’s just a little harder sometimes as they are more alert. We’ll shoot more of a lifestyle session (think lots of images of Mom & Dad snuggling & holding their sweet baby).
