I had a whole post prepared about how young love prevailed and two beautiful souls became adults, together, and formed a family so perfect you find it in dreams. However, instead I rather you show you how their love looks like in physical form.

I’m always looking for soft knits for my newborn sessions, but to be honest, I’m a bit picky. I came across Petunia’s Handmade Creations on Etsy and fell in love with her beautiful selection. See for yourself: So I did what I always do, I contacted her to get more information about the yarn itself and when I heard back from her I loved her shop even more. She uses mostly hand died yarn from small, family owned farms in Africa. Some of her items are made from fair trade organic cotton. Aren’t these amazing? If you are preparing for your newborn session, I encourage you to visit her Etsy shop. [Tip:… Keep Reading

Sometimes life doesn’t go as planned and our dreams don’t unfold in the rigid timeline we set. We get frustrated, sad even, thinking that maybe it’s not meant to be or it’s something we don’t deserve. Yet if we could peek into our future we would see that things are coming, and when they do, it will be at just the right time – not sooner.
Ahhh newborns…I love them and everything they represent. Last week I posted Part 1 of the Tips for a beautiful newborn session series, you can click here to read, and I promised that I would post more. So let’s get started: LET THERE BE LIGHT. Lighting is everything and to a natural light photographer of newborns, window light is key. Tell your photographer where the lighting is best in your home, or show them! I have clients text me pictures from their iphones of places in their home where they think the lighting is best. I love that! All of our newborns sessions right now take place at our client’s… Keep Reading
“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.” – Nathaniel Hawthorne This mama and baby are very dear to me and hold a special place in my heart. It seems like it was yesterday when she was this little. Baby Bella was eagerly awaited and welcomed with an insurmountable amount of love. I want to share with you a few words this lovely mama wrote in a letter to her unborn child: ” . . . When I wonder if I’m a good enough mother, please help me to know my strength again. When I… Keep Reading
Before I get to the tips, I want to preface this by saying just how much I love and enjoy motherhood. When Joshua, my oldest, was born and at only 20 years-old I was scared, but in that cool December morning I was on top of the world. Nothing compares to the feeling a first time mom experiences when her baby arrives. To say that I love newborns is an understatement. These sleepy little souls with tiny wrinkles are perfection and the true meaning and purpose of life. I sometimes find myself in a wave of sadness just thinking that my little babies will one day leave the nest. These… Keep Reading
There are many reasons why I love newborn photography sessions; each is so very unique. Even at such a young age, you sometimes get a glimpse of their personality. Trenchbowl by: Traditions in Thyme // Lambskin Cover: West Elm
