At Home With Three

It would easy to get overwhelmed or stressed when you have three little ones three and under and you have newborn portraits scheduled. (Oh, and see their maternity portraits here)These two just know their boys and what entertains them so the session really flew by easily. These two were absolutely adorable with their baby brother, and oh my, I just love the photos of their brother by himself in the end – so simple and classic. I am sure there is never a dull moment at their home, and that this crew of five has so much fun together. I feel like I was just at their home for their second baby boy’s newborn portraits. (And see the biggest brother’s portraits here) What a fun morning this was, and I love photographing family newborn sessions at home.

According to Mom..

What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? He’s tiny, is what I said when the Dr. got him out. He wasn’t really a small baby but my smallest and I knew that right away. After that when I looked at him I just thought how sweet he smelled and how glad I was that he was here!

What was your favorite part of our session together? I have 2 other small children and Becky is great about making it no big deal what they were doing. She was able to work with them and make them laugh and got some really good shots of all of us and of just my boys. I love being at home especially for my preschooler and toddler because they are in a comfortable environment and when we were doing pictures with my husband, me, and the baby the boys had plenty of other toys that occupied their attention. Plus I feel like being at home just captures us in our natural state.

How did you prepare the baby for our photoshoot? I made sure that he was fed and had a clean diaper.

How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous beforehand?Like I said this was my third baby and my third newborn session with Becky. I wasn’t really nervous or worried because I know Becky is so good at letting us have breaks when needed. So when we had to stop for me to feed baby I knew it was no big thing.

What would be your advice to someone having newborn photographs taken? Don’t stress! Babies are unpredictable and Becky is great about understanding that. But also be prepared…feed baby right before and give a clean diaper. It gives you the best chance at baby not being fussy the whole time. Have fun! My favorite pictures are the ones that show our family interacting together and my boys smiling and laughing.

Do you have any other children? How did they react to the baby? Yes! My boys are obsessed with their baby. They love to kiss him, hold him, and hug him. It’s so sweet to see the bond they are all building.

How would you describe your perfect Saturday as a family? Perfect Saturday would be a relaxing pancake breakfast and then relaxing at home together.

   Little Gift

Cary Apex Newborn Photographer

 

I was able to go on a brief trip to NJ/NYC this summer and photographed this sweet family the day after I got back. So many giggles and smiles.(And you can see big sister’s newborn portraits here) Carter was just such a content baby and his sister with him was the sweetest thing ever. I am laughing that Mom’s favorite part of the session was me throwing things – anything to get the photos, right? What a little gift this one is to his family, and so thrilled to see them again!

According to Mom..

What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? We were just so thankful he was here! We tried for a while to have a second baby and dealt with some real disappointment during that time, so to finally have him here was just an overwhelming joy!

What was your favorite part of our session together? My favorite part was definitely when you started throwing things around to get Remie’s attention.

How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous beforehand? I wasn’t worried or nervous at all because I knew from experience it would go perfectly! I was elated that you were able to fit us in on short notice and make me feel so much better about getting great newborn pictures.

Did you have a sentimental item at our shoot? Recreating some of the same images you did when you photographed Remie is really neat and special. Also, the pictures including the blanket my mother knitted for Carter are amazing.

Do you have any other children? How did they react to the baby? Remie LOVES her baby brother. She tells him countless times each day and he’s the first thing she looks for when she walks into the room. His little head is actually the first thing she’s ever truly kissed with her lips. She’ll do the motions and act like she’s giving a kiss, but she’s actually kissed this sweet baby’s little head and it’s the sweetest thing.

How would you describe your perfect Saturday as a family? We like to exercise together in the mornings. In the summer, pool time with a picnic lunch is so much fun. And in the fall, going to a pumpkin patch or a hay ride is the best! BBQ for dinner followed up by going out for ice cream… sounds like our perfect Saturday!

Dimples

Raleigh Newborn Photographer

This was one of those easygoing mornings at home. One thing I love about newborn sessions is not rushing them. Sometimes with siblings we are a little bit rushed on the photos with them (because they are only excited about pictures for a little bit) but for the most part, I try not to rush sessions so that a) Mom + Dad aren’t as stressed and so baby doesn’t get stressed b) no one can take photos when a baby is hungry or mad, right, so we need time to soothe them and c) the first few weeks of a baby’s life is just so precious and to get the photos we want, we just really can’t rush it. Sometimes I’m asked about newborn mini sessions, and it’s just not something that I can do. We really just have to go with the baby + what kind of day they are having. Sometimes they have growth spurts, etc, and everyday is different. I loved meeting this sweet couple when they announced their pregnancy, and it was so great to see them again after their sweet baby girl was born. And she was just so precious and content to be snuggled. Her puppies were also just adorable with her, and don’t miss her dimples! So stinking cute, and so glad we were able to capture a photo with them. I seriously tried not to share every single photo from this session (but I wanted to!)

According to Mom..

What was the first thing you thought when you saw your baby for the first time? Dimples!! She’s so sweet and alert!! She arrived with a smile on her face (highlighting her dimples) and bright eyes!! Immediately felt blessed and thankful for our miracle.

What was the best part of having a session at home? No time limit…it was relaxed, not rushed and allowed us to be new parents:)Being at home provided intimate surroundings and peek into our sweet new world and new home with our new little one!

How did you prepare baby for our photoshoot? Mom and Dad styled by Little Apples…from there, I ordered a monogrammed pink swaddle for Frankie.

How was your experience having your newborn photographed? Were you worried or nervous beforehand? We all were very relaxed and excited even with 2 dogs! We were tired, of course, but Becky was patient, gentle and respectful. Our baby was tired too but since there wasn’t a time limit, it allowed all of us to work together to get the best shots

What would be your advice to someone getting newborn photographs taken? Spouses / significant others…give mommy an hour or 2 to get ready and pretty so she can be comfortable and confident especially since newborn shoots are only a week or 2 after delivery!

Was there a sentimental item in your nursery that we photographed? Lladro – gifted to Frankie and our 2 dogs interacting with Frankie (Heidi and Herbie)

How would your describe your perfect Saturday as a family? Sunny, summer day on our screened in porch and backyard with our baby (she loves being outside!) and our 2 dogs frolicking. We love having friends and family over to our home and sharing in those sunny summer days:)

Any other advice to families preparing for a session or picking out wardrobe? Make sure your clothes and environment are comfortable, coordinated and allows you to feel confident

A Dream Come True

Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.

-Mary Oliver.

A baby is a dream come true… When I show up to a newborn session, I’m photographing the many prayers, dreams, hopes..all those moments that eventually led to a such a precious gift for their family. Mom + Dad may be sleep deprived and ready for a nap, (who isn’t always ready for a nap the first few months/years with a little one) but what I also get to capture is the doting on their little one…the huge love that happens in those first weeks at home bonding with this little person you have been dreaming of and waiting for. This daddy was just so precious with his baby girl, swaying her and rocking her in her favorite spot. And every time her Mama held her, she was wide awake, ready to party. Just so precious! Those two are just going to have so much fun together, getting pedicures and going shopping! This is why I love my job…I love capturing newborns personality in the first few weeks and also the miracle of new life. I have gotten to photograph so many sweet newborns this month…Looking forward to so many more in the next few weeks! If you’re due this fall/winter, and haven’t gotten on the schedule yet, contact me ASAP! We are almost full for the fall/winter month newborns!

Kisses for Baby Brother

Cary Sibling Newborn Photographer   

These sweet boys together – oh my, the cutest! Big brother spent a lot of time snuggling his Mommy + Daddy during this sweet newborn session at home. I first met them not too long ago at his own newborn portrait session so we already knew the spots in their house with the best light. They have a few great spots around the house so we were able to get a few different backgrounds, which is always great during a session. Since we had already had a session at their home, these two were pros and already had all the blinds up. It’s funny how you never realize that some rooms have a lot of light because you just never raise the blinds in those rooms. It’s amazing what opening the blinds can do! So great to see this sweet family again and to be able to photograph their boys together! I looooove photographing siblings together, it is the sweetest!

We just got back from a week at the beach! (which means Coastal Minis!) but we are just about to release our fall mini dates next week! Ericka and I have been working hard (mostly Ericka!) on scouting locations and coming up with some super fun creative ideas for our fall family minis + holiday minis. We will be releasing all of our information to the newsletter list, first, so if you aren’t on our newsletter, click here to sign up to get all of the information. We are going to have a few different options for fall minis this year, and it’s going to be a super busy fall!
