Newborn Photography in Fort Wayne, IN

I had the pleasure of working with this adorable family for a special newborn session.  This sweet dad wanted to surprise his wife with a Newborn Photography Session as a gift for Mother’s Day.  I was so excited because she had actually reached out to me weeks earlier to book the session, only to have her sneaky husband say no.  😉

Jack was a perfect angel for his newborn session, along with big brother Jimmy… who is quite possibly the cutest guy I have ever had in the studio.  I wanted to keep them both!!  Aren’t they the cutest pair of boys you have ever seen, and with the perfect names??  I just loved them.  Jack was so squishy and curly and such a cuddle bug.  Oh, and he had the most perfect head of hair.

I have been doing Newborn Photography here in Ft. Wayne IN for a couple years now, and I’m just amazed at how different each and every little baby is.  Some babies don’t like to be on their backs, some don’t like to be on their tummies.  Some prefer to be wrapped, others prefer to be naked.  But one thing that all babies do, just before they flash a smile is flutter their eyes.  I can almost always capture that sweet smile just by watching for that little sign and Jack did not disappoint!  He gave me the cutest smile in two different set ups.  My favorite one is in this series of shots right here. I just love working with these tiny humans!

This makes me so excited for my own baby to arrive in the fall.  I just can’t believe that I will be having my own newborn session in 6 months or so!  Eeeeek, I’m so excited!

Enjoy!

Let’s talk about the importance of Family Sessions for a sec.  I could go on and on and on about why I think Family Photography is so important.  I think it’s important for several reasons… but one of the biggest is this:

  Time never stops.  Ever.

No matter how hard we try, time will never stand still.  In each and every moment, you child is growing up.  Those little curls in your daughters hair, the fat rolls on your baby’s legs… they are all temporary and ever changing.  And you, as the parents, are growing older.  You wont always be able to throw your toddlers into the air.  You wont always be wrinkle free.  LOL   Now is the time to document these years of your youth with your young children.  Because before you know it, they will be graduating high school…. and getting married.  (Yes.  Seriously. This happens.  sniff sniff.)  It is crucial to document the stages of your family throughout the years.  If you don’t, the years will slip by and as much as you think you wont… you WILL forget little details.

Another reason that it is so important:  You are leaving a legacy.

 Why is it important to leave a legacy? Because the photographs you have are a vault of treasures that can be revisited by others after you’re gone. It’s important to those we might leave behind (whether they know that yet or not) so it should be important to you. Have you lost a family member in the past?  What is one of the first things that we do?  Look for photographs of them.  Or photographs with yourself with that lost loved one.  Most often times, these images can be the keepsakes of memory that remind us of the way people smiled or the gestures they made when they laughed.   Those photos allow us to look into the eyes of those that we loved and continue to love, and find comfort and joy.

So please, if you are interested in family photography, don’t wait to schedule your session.  Set it up today.  Get in the frame with your loved ones.  Kiss on them.  Play with them.  And let me document it for you and your family to enjoy for a lifetime.

In the mean time, take a look at some of my favorite clients with their precious little 1 year old Henry.  I first photographed him as a 2 week old newborn.  And just like that, a year has passed.  I’m telling you, time never stops.

Enjoy 🙂

Preston’s mom and I went to school together years ago, and it was such an honor to capture this special time for her and her family.

How adorable is big sister here?  She was such a  little mom, it was the cutest thing ever.

Preston was such an angle baby, he never made a peep and barely opened his eyes!  I love it when that happens, it makes my job a lot easier. 🙂

Congrats again Carrie on your precious baby boy.

I just love when my newborn clients come back to see me for their milestone sessions!

This is sweet Ivy.  I just loved her newborn session so much, and was so excited to see her again.To see my favorite from her newborn session, click here.

She was such a perfect angel for me when she was a few days old.  I was anxious to see if she was going to be nice to me as a six month old too. 🙂

  We tried to recreate an image that we took at her newborn session of Ivy on her daddy’s guitar (that actually once belonged to her grandpa that had passed away).  It was a very special image for this sweet family, and I was so tickled with the way it turned out.  I will include that special shot at the end of this blog post.

Her mom is an amazingly talented floral designer for Be Married, and she made the most adorable pieces for Ivy to incorporate into her session.  I just love when my clients bring special things for their session.  They make each session unique and extra special just for them.  Oh, and how perfectly did these floral creations go with the adorable lace romper that I purchased from Cora & Violet.  If you haven’t yet, check out her amazing pieces.  She makes the most amazing things for little ones for Child Photography and Newborn Photography photo sessions.  I’m obsessed.

I can’t wait to see her again for her one year pics!

Enjoy.

So when our good friends told us they were expecting, we were so excited that we could have busted at the seams!  After years of them being surrogate parents to my little ones, I’m so happy to see them with a sweet boy of their very own.  Plus, it’s always so fun to photograph your friends newborns!

Bobby (how cute is that name?!) was the most chill baby boy ever.  He was a newborn photographers dream.  Check out his perfect hair!

Oh, and my favorite shot of the session is with an antique buggy that belonged to Bobby’s great grandma when she was a baby.  How amazing is that?  His parents have trusted me with this heirloom for a few years now, and we couldn’t wait to use it for Bobby’s newborn session to make it extra special.Newborn Photographer in Fort WayneNewborn Photographer in Fort WayneNewborn Photographer in Fort WayneNewborn Photographer in Fort Wayne
