There is always a first for everything and this was a first for me just a couple of months ago. Yes I know I’m behind on blogging this … summer with 3 kids is CRAZY!! Anyways, I was so thrilled to get to add twins to my fresh 48 portfolio and they were cute to boot. It was a full room when I arrived to meet the Antionu family and their sweet new baby girls. There were two babies, two parents, two big brothers, two grandmas, one grandpa and one aunt… and me! Boy was it busy busy but we made it work and I had the big brothers help me at times too. Watching their fascination with their little sisters was fantastic. A baby for each of them, no fighting on who got to hold the baby. Which is something I deal with daily in my house since Easton came home. They were sweet, kind and pretty silly too, just like most big brothers are. They were constantly looking and touching and making sure the girls were doing ok and observing their little features. Mom and dad have such a full house and over flowing hearts now.

It’s always so nice to be a part of someones family journey and capture the special moments. With Jessica I was able to capture both her maternity session and then Pierson’s Fresh 48 session. His fresh 48 was extra special because his big brother Anderson was there to meet him too! Anderson took surprisingly well to meeting Pierson and even better to me being there with my camera. He was such a sweetheart with Pierson, talking with him, holding him and giving him lots of kisses.
It was so nice for Jessica and her family to have me there capturing such a special moment for them so soon after birth. Pierson was just a mere 12 hours old when I arrived. Jessica and I were able to chat about our birth stories and how similar they were – subsequent babies really do come fast!

This was an extra special session for me, because it was for a good friend I’ve grown to know since meeting my husband. Taylor and her family were my husband’s childhood home neighbors and still are so we see them often when visiting my in-laws. We found out we were pregnant just a few months apart and we shared pregnancy woes and insomnia. It’s always great to be able to gift your friends your favorite sessions, and this was perfect for Taylor. It’s always special to be a part of such a special moment with families, but it’s even more when it’s for friends and family. Mackayla was such a doll and had the fullest head of dark hair. I can’t wait to spend summer days at the beach and watching her grow up.
When she arrived it I made it a family affaire and had my boys join me when going to meet her and do her fresh 48 session. Edward was really excited to meet another baby and kept showing Easton the baby that was just like him! Also thankfully Taylor’s parents were there to keep him occupied while I worked, he loves playing with them. Easton on the other hand slept the whole time and was a complete champ again during a session!
Here is me holding both Mackayla and Easton – I love my job!! And thank goodness for this Ergo carrier that’s gotten me though 3 babies and working!

It was such a pleasure to get to meet Lorelei last month, she was absolutely adorable! I met Katelynn at a special brunch held last year by East End Playdates for moms and moms-to-be. Katelynn entered the raffle to win her very own Fresh 48 session from me and was so excited when she won!
I’ve become quite the regular over at Stony Brook Hospital doing fresh 48’s and I have so many more set to happen in the next few months. They are truly my favorite sessions. When I arrived to meet Lorelei I had my very own assistant, Easton, with me since he was only about 4 weeks old. He was perfect and didn’t make a peep the whole time. He has accompanied me on every shoot since.
Lorelei has the sweetest features and the best head of hair so far in 2018. Mom and dad were totally amazing too, we chatted about so many things during the session. She had the sweetest disposition but really wanted to suck on something the whole time and you will see that in a few of her images below. It was so cute. I even shot some video as a new addition to add onto your fresh 48 packages.

I met Nicole at my event back in August at our local baby boutique, Cribs n’ Bibs, and we hit it off right away. She brought in her beautiful daughter Mable and told me she was expecting in October. She love the idea of a fresh 48 session since they were still doing renovations on their house and it would be a mess for a at home session.
We were set and ready for her section date in October and she was not finding out boy or girl until the birth! Which is pretty exciting for everyone. I was away in Nashville doing a newborn session for a childhood friend and only expecting to hear from another mom due the previous week. When I returned home and was able to get to my email I saw that she had emailed me – she had gone into labor on her own and IT WAS A GIRL. I was able to shift some things around on the calendar and get to the hospital the next day. There I met baby Ada – alert and absolutely as cute as a button. Aside from my two very wild children I had never had such an alert baby – let alone one that was 3 weeks early and only 29 hours old! After a little time with just Ada big sister Mable and Dad arrived. I just adore how this session turned out.

A lot has happened – of course – since I last posted. We moved to NEW YORK being one big thing. Its been a wild ride and we are still getting settled but I finally have had some sessions and it feels good to be back!
I did Christian’s session back in June and really had a blast. He was such a calm little guy and kinda went with it. He was a little older than what you typically see with newborn photos at 10 weeks old but was a champ. No sleeping for him – I was just too interesting. But I did catch a few blinks that gave the illusion that he was indeed sleeping.

I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet girls new baby sister. She slept nearly the whole time and was a dream to work with and Big Sister was a treat too! I can’t believe how this girl is a big sister now – seems just like yesterday she was born and my little lady and her were playing together.

I have been long awaiting to post this beautiful girl. I photographed her whole first year from newborn to 3, 6, 9 months and one year with a cake smash! She was the best little poser one could ask for. So sad to see that they were moving to Houston the day after her first birthday session. She will be missed!
First year sessions can be booked before baby even arrives! Pricing and info can be found on my website here.

I’ve been wanting to get a blog going for a good time now and I have finally found the free moment to do so. Having two littles now is a handful… to say the least!
I will be posting different sessions and life happenings here as the days tick on. I can’t wait to share the back log of sessions past that are some of my favorites.
