What a joy it is for me to capture new parents and their brand new baby. It makes me smile from ear to ear! I absolutely love being a lifestyle newborn photographer and traveling to my clients homes to capture these real life moments that they will treasure for years to come. Thank you Bushkuhl family! Here are some favorites from baby Leila’s newborn session in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Oh sweet Ember, she did so well for her newborn session, even though she was close to being 3 weeks old. I typically like to do newborns around 7-10 days, so I was hoping she would be sleepy enough, and still bendy enough to do some poses – and she passed the test with flying colors! I absolutely love her name, so unique and beautiful. Congrats to the new parents!
Oh my goodness, I couldn’t have loved this newborn session anymore! Let me give you a little back story on this sweet baby girl. Her momma is a friend of mine and this was their fourth babe. She has 3 boys….and has been praying for a little girl for many years. This was going to their last baby, regardless of gender. I was going crazy waiting to find out what they were having, and when Brittany told me it was a girl – I could have cried!! She is the most beautiful baby, and has 3 adorable big brothers who love her so much, and a mommy and daddy who adore her too! It was a joy to photograph her – I wanted to keep her (as always, ha!).
Oh this session was too much fun! This blog post is long overdue, but in my defense I am new to the blogging world 🙂 I have loved watching Vaida grow. I photographed her parents wedding, her momma’s maternity photos, Vaida’s newborn photos and more, and this was Vaida’s one year session and was ‘The Hungry Caterpillar’ themed – so cute right?! Her Grandma MADE her outfit for photos, such talent! I love photographing children, they are so fun and adorable! She was so OVER the session by the end of it….the last photo is proof 😉
Oh sweet baby Ezra…this was one of my favorite newborn sessions to date. He did so well and I got the cutest poses of this sweet baby boy and his parents. I love capturing newborns, but it’s so fun when it’s mom and dad’s FIRST baby. Just so so special. Mom looked absolutely gorgeous! Why don’t I look that amazing after giving birth?! 🙂
This was an extra special newborn session, my cousin Angela’s baby boy! They live in Grand Rapids, Michigan – which is a little over 2 hours from me so I packed up my studio, and headed to Grand Rapids for Colton’s session. It was my first time in awhile, shooting a natural light newborn session, and setting up my stuff in someone’s home, and I gotta say, it was nice to use natural light again. It was such a relaxed session as I took my time with Colton, while visiting with my dear cousin, and Tommee and their little girl McKenlee too.
I should take a minute to brag about Tommee’s amazing talents. He’s a Christian music writer, song artist, who is very talented and gifted. Tommee and Angela are also the famous duo in the viral hit, “I’m pregnant and I know it”, which you can watch here: http://youtu.be/THAaNPIxEek (Sorry you will have to copy and paste it into your browser).
It was a great time visiting with Ang and her adorable family. Angela is one of those momma’s who looks so beautiful after having a baby. It was fun to get some lifestyle type shots for them, as I don’t get to do those often. McKenlee was so sweet, she was constantly checking in on baby Colton during the session, and we tried grabbing a couple shots of them together too. McKenlee is the sweetest thing, and cracks us up with her big ‘McKenlee open mouth smile”….so the whole family joined in for one of the shots 😉 Here’s some of my favorite newborn shots from Colton’s session.
