His face was flawless, his toes looked delicious and even the tiny curly hairs on the top of his head were utter perfection. There are so many sweet details I just had to capture so that this small piece of his newborn-ness would be preserved forever. It is sad really how fleeting this time is. One week their cry sounds like a kitten’s and they seem so small and fragile, and then just bit later they are robust, alert and eager to see the world about them.

 

If you want this early stage captured it is important to contact me 1-3months before your due date to secure a place on the calendar. I sometimes can accommodate a last minute inquiry once baby is already born but it isn’t often. My style is very simple and natural. I want to capture your little one as they are and try and keep these moments for you to look back and remember them.

Those eyes. They got me. BAM! I fell head over heels for him. Then he fell asleep and as I poured over every detail of his perfection and captured it I felt truly honored. He is going to be a celebrity or President one day…I just know it, he just has this feeling about him. I’m sure his parents know how special he is and I loved every second of our session!

I get email inquires from all across the Low Country. I have had people travel to the studio from Charlotte, Rock Hill, Myrtle Beach, Beaufort, Hilton Head, Greenville, Irmo, Sumter and even Tryon, NC. Then I got an email from a photographer in Jackson, MI who purchased my Unadorned Photography Guide when it was sold on Photo Deal Cafe and was about to have her 3rd child. We talked briefly about the possibility of her driving out from MI with her entire family for the newborn session, but decided instead that it would be easier for me to fly out to her.

 

Straight from the plane I headed up to their home. We were able to shoot some great lifestyle images with their family and her other two adorable kids. I absolutely love capturing the moments of fun, silly and discovery when a new sibling is introduced. Lifestyle photography is the way to capture a real moment in time.

We then ventured outside to this plot land that hadn’t yet been touched by construction and I braved my fear of snakes by walking all around the tall brush to capture some sweet natural images of them together. The tones of cream and green and pops of blue were just too perfect! I had an amazing time with this beautiful family and I hope that I get the chance to travel more this year and capture newborns all over this beautiful country of ours!

It was mild day in Charleston. The mosquitos weren’t too horrible and the humidity was at bay. There was a slight breeze and the setting sun set off a glow that almost rivaled the one this mother-to-be had. To say she was stunning wouldn’t do her justice. She was like a southern California celebrity with the most perfect little bump, beautiful skin and radiant smile. We laughed, we joked and although she said she was awkward in front the camera she shined.

We started off the session inside the studio and utilized the gorgeous natural light to capture some simple, modern, classic maternity shots. It was very ‘Calvin Klein ad’ in feel, and I am glad we were able to capture these types of images for her.

We then headed outside to my ‘enchanted forest’. She had brought a beautiful long skirt and we decided that a simple wrap tied as a bandeau top would work perfectly to showcase her belly. There was this perfect softness to the light that day and I was giddy during her whole session. It was magical to say the least. Soft, simple and natural. No baby blocks on her belly, no giant bows tied around her, just her, her amazing husband and that beautiful bump.

   There was no way I could end the session here…not with this gorgeous mama and beautiful light, so we headed down the street a bit to a gorgeous open field and she put on this soft dress. As if the session couldn’t get any better…it did!

I first met this family 4years ago when I photography a maternity/newborn session for them. I have since watch their family blossom and grow. I was so honored to be able to capture all the joy and excited as they welcomed another beautiful baby into their family.

She delivered her 3rd baby at the Charleston Birth Place after experiencing hospital births with her other two children. I love capturing births at the center because they are always so intimate and serene. There isn’t the chaos or clinical feel to them. The birth is all about the mom’s journey and bonding together as a family. It is truly magical to witness.

 I was so excited for this beautiful boy’s newborn session. He was so curly and snuggly and I couldn’t get enough of him! It was so amazing to see his new big brother and sister in their roles and how well they just accepted him, loved him and couldn’t get enough of him already. I loved every moment with this family and I truly grateful they chose me to capture this chapter in their lives!
