If you’re shopping for a newborn photographer, you might be feeling a little overwhelmed. Just like many other aspects of becoming a parent, hiring a newborn photographer might seem confusing at first, but I am here to help! I’ve created this guide to help explain the difference between posed and lifestyle newborn sessions and how […]
Hooray, the baby girl drought is finally over! It seems like it’s been ages since we last had a sweet little girl in the studio, and so we pulled out alllll the girly things for EmmaLou. Doesn’t her name sound like a song? She’s named after her Nana! EmmaLou’s mom, Sarah, chose a mini session […]
A few weeks ago I received a text I’d been waiting on for months. My sweet client-friend, Stacy, was PREGNANT! You might remember her from this gorgeous portrait session back in December. Stacy and Austin had trouble getting pregnant, and after lots of prayers and one round of IVF, their little miracle is on the way!
The idea of a newborn mini session is something I’ve been wanting to offer for awhile, but it just seemed so unattainable. And then the lightbulb went off: what if I kept the baby wrapped, with diaper on, the entire time? A full newborn session takes three hours because so much time is spent soothing baby and cleaning up messes. This is NOT a glamorous job, y’all.
Just when I think I’ve got it all figured out, something comes along and shifts my entire perspective. It’s humbling, really, and it keeps me growing as a person and as an artist. The Andress holiday portrait session was exactly that.
Well, as to be expected, I challenged myself to blog each day in the month of September – and then TOTALLY fell off the bandwagon. But it was for a good reason, I promise! The past several weeks have brought family and newborn portrait sessions, two new wedding clients for 2018, educational workshops, and tons […]
September was an absolutely incredible month for me and AWP. The studio got a beautiful makeover, I booked two more weddings for next year, and I got to serve some absolutely wonderful new clients. To cap it off, I was fortunate enough to attend a small, in-person workshop with one of the greatest newborn photographers […]
It’s hard to put the power of newborn photography into words, but I’m going to try. My births and post-partum experiences were difficult, physically and mentally, and sadly, I don’t have many happy memories of the early days with my daughters. Before they were born, newborn photography seemed like a frivolous expense. “What do I […]
Newborn photography is my absolute favorite genre. I love being one of the first people to snuggle baby, providing a cozy, inviting place for parents to rest, and creating stunning images that will be adored for a lifetime. You may not realize it, but a LOT of planning, preparation, education, and training has gone into […]
Congratulations, you’re about to have a baby! You’re probably Googling at all hours of the day: looking for the best car seat, the fastest route to the hospital, researching where your pediatrician went to med school juuuust to make sure it’s legit. I beg of you: give the same amount of care to choosing a […]
