sneak peek

…to an already wonderful, beautiful family. As if he wasn’t cute enough…I mean, I truly want to give him hug after hug when I photograph him – he’s got an awesome laugh, gorgeous eyes and the fullest, rosiest cheeks. What a cutie! Now I get to photograph his beautiful baby sister. Here she is, just as sweet as can be. Beautiful, peachy rose complexion…so small and precious.  True, she didn’t want to sleep all that much during our session – but she did take a few short snoozes that allowed me to capture some lovely images – she even smiled for the camera :) I still loved her awake though, because I got to see her pretty eyes. And of course, the photo session wouldn’t be complete without the big baby: Muffin.

  • karen stainner As usual, just pure sweetness and magic - it's amazing what you can distill from a shoot!!! You're the best...many many thanks :))(04.29.2011 01:14pm)

For each and every photo session I do, there are a handful of shots I always try to get. The night before a session, my mind turns and ideas bounce around in my head for hours. I get excited and inspired…and I make a mental note of the various shots I want to capture…and how I’ll go about doing it. Sometimes I keep a post-it in my pocket with notes…or write them down on my hand :P  So many factors play into whether or not my goal is achieved (weather, mood, baby’s temperament etc) – and while it’s not always possible to get them all, I keep them on my mind throughout the entire session. For this session, my vision was so totally realized — I was able to get all that I had hoped for. I was really aching for a sweet, loving, tender set of images that glowed with the morning light. And I was so lucky that the sun was indeed shining when I arrived at the location (in the past, clouds have put a damper on my plans for sun flare). Then, then…I saw the family. Baby boy was just the most adorabel little guy with chubby pinchable cheeks…and mom was so pretty and had this lovely, lovely romantic flutter sleeve blouse that I fell in love with. And although I wasn’t sure whether baby was into me at first, I was overjoyed when he finally warmed up to me and gave the camera smile after smile :) Here are just a few faves…there are MANY, MANY more that I can’t wait to show mommy and daddy!

It’s hard being a newborn model. Since I shoot natural light, some newbies turn away from the window at first – but never has one actually attempted to cover their face! I thought this was just adorable :) more to come from this session!

  • karen stainner Need more more more!!! Can't wait to see the rest and again, thanks so much for your patience and time with a chaotic newborn household and no naps from either child! (I thought I left this in a comment already but maybe I never sent it..? :-/ ) You are The Best!!!(04.27.2011 12:30pm)

It’s like kids have a sixth sense about things. When we really want them to take a nice long nap so they’re well rested for a fun photo shoot, they of course – DON’T NAP! This happened to two families I photographed this weekend. It’s happened to me before as well…seems like my son always skips his nap on the day I need him to rest the most. Familiar, indeed. Despite the lack of naps for the wee ones, they did awesome for our shoot. Just look at this lovely, lovely family!

  • Alyssa Snodgrass Oh my goodness!! Thanks so much Julie!! These are wonderful, I am beyond pleased and can't wait to see the rest.(04.25.2011 08:21am)

…appreciation for being able to do what I do. This beautiful baby boy is a true miracle. He survived two dangerous heart surgeries after his birth and is thriving despite it all, just like a little champ. I feel extremely honored to have had the opportunity to capture this special and momentous time in his life and the lives of his family members, as he is a true survivor! He also proved to be a perfect little baby model. At 8 weeks, I wasn’t sure if we’d be able to get many sleepy newborn photos, but with a some patience and the loving touch of his mommy, we were able to get some amazing images :)

…Cool, calm & collected. He might be the coolest baby I have ever photographed. Not only did he have the coolest little dude outfit ever, he had a super cool personality to go along with it :) He was very laid back, relaxed & calm. I’m not sure if it was because he was super tired (he woke up way before his usual time for this session), or if he’s just awesome and cool like that naturally! Probably a bit of both. Either way, I instantly fell in love with his coolness…his big, gorgeous brown eyes and super long lashes. Gerber baby? I think so! I can so see his sweet face on a Gerber label.

Although it has been over 2 years since I last saw this sweet family for their daughter’s newborn shoot, I still remember so clearly what she looked like at 2 weeks young. And man, her little brother looks so much like her! I was blown away. He’s so cute and snuggly…and  super chubby for 2 weeks! I was worried that he’d tip that little basket over because he barely fit in it :) Big sister was also sweet as pie – she gave her little bro lots of hugs and kisses!

…with those eyes, chubby cheeks and pink lips, it’s no surprise that I wanted to take him home with me. The last time I photographed little man, he was only a few months old – now, he’s celebrating his 1st birthday! I was totally smitten with him then, and it looks like he’s still got that same charm :) From his pensive gaze to his shy little smile, he’s as cute as they come!  Happy Birthday little man!!!
