Sweet Maeley came in for her first photography session with us. I had the privilege of photographing her big brother’s newborn session two years ago and am so thrilled to photograph Maeley’s newborn session. She was such a good baby with long gorgeous fingers.

Her newborn photography session just happened to be on Valentine’s Day, so we did one sweet valentines themed image. I have so much fun when my clients give me free reign to be creative and just see what we can come up with for a set.

Newborn photography has been a passion of mine over the last several years as I have learned more about it and progressed in the field of it. I get so excited waking up in the morning and realizing I have a sweet newborn baby to photograph that day.

One last thing…if you are a photographer and interested in learning more about newborn photography. I will be teaching a class for FREE on March 19th in Grand Rapids. The class is sponsored by ColorInc Printing Lab and I am thrilled to be able to share my love of newborn photography. If you would like to learn more about the details and sign up, please click on this link. As a special little bonus, I will give a brief description of the poses below and I will be covering them in more detail at the newborn photography class as well in March.

 

These family photos are just precious. I used the same wrapping set up for both mom and then with big brother since she initially started the session awake. Wrapping a baby like this encourages them to just fall asleep. I love this pose and will be demonstrating it at the newborn photography class.

I unwrapped her a little and then added the pink wrap to do this pose….nice easy transition since I did not have to unwrap her completely and risk waking her up!

The other pose is the froggy pose! I will be demonstrating this pose in detail at the newborn photography class.

This is called “bum up” pose…one of my favorite poses to do each session due to its versatility.

Mom brought in a little mini volleyball so I got a little creative on this one. It is a three image composite. Excited how it turned out!!
