How can you ever get tired of being a newborn photographer. I get to kiss and snuggle babies all day long. When a chubby newborn comes into my studio in Wildwood, MO, my heart melts.  There is something about chunky babies I can not get enough of.  We sometimes have a trickier time getting them to bend in half as their chub gets in the way! :).  But once they are posed, there is nothing cuter.  Kalder did not disappoint! Here are a handful of shots so you can enjoy her as I got to.

 

On  a side personal note. This frog pose that I do very frequently is done safely.  There are many new photographers out there whom have not been trained and it makes me nervous. So when you are thinking about booking your newborn photography session, make sure they have a ton of experience.  :)

As I sit her unloading my camera from my last few shoots, this shot stood out to me.  It was not planned, dad was not even supposed to be in any shots. Although I love daddy shots. The peanut came to see me for her newborn photography session. This was her at 3 months as she is starting her millstone sessions for her first year. The 3 month sessions are just mini photo shoot sessions. They document how fast babies grow. She was done with me after her 30 minutes and dad picked her up for some snuggles. She peeked over at me and I had to snap a picture. He eyes are to DIE FOR! What a peanut.

 

I LOVE that I get to see so many of my newborns grow. They all have a special place in my heart. I am one blessed girl with one pretty amazing job.

  • So beautiful! I always love those unexpected and unplanned shots, they turn into the best of the entire shoot.ReplyCancel

Dramatic backlighting is my thing.  This shoot was SO fun for me.  People ask me all the time if I specialize in newborn photography. The thing is, I don’t specialize. I LOVE newborn photography. I do.  I love posing little itty bitty newborn, I love lifestyle newborn photography, I love backlit mom images.  But there is a part of me that needs to get super creative at sunset. I supposed it feeds the inner artist in me a bit. When families book a photo session with me, they know I only shoot at sunset for this very reason. If you are a photographer reading this and would like to learn more about this type of backlighting, feel free to pop over to The Chic Critique as I taught a course on it not too long ago.   I even go over how to edit backlit images. Backlighting during shoots is SO much fun when you know all the little tricks to get your best shots.

 

With this session, it was meant to be miss Scarlett’s 1 yr photo session. Her older sister came along (they have a huge family). I am SO glad she did. We had a total blast driving and chasing the sun.  Here are some highlights from her shoot. LOVE.

Singing in the rain – St Louis maternity photography. Where is the rain! April rained literally way more than I can ever remember. Granted, I have not lived in St. Louis but one April since I was a kid, but for real. Rain. Rain. Rain. Hot. Cold. Snow. Rain. Hot. Cold. What a crazy spring! The weather in St. Louis sure is as crazy as I can remember. So we decided we needed an April shower maternity photo shoot to bring her May baby into this word. We bumped our shoot a few times to make sure it WAS raining. For real? I have NEVER AIMED for rain. It was fun! That day of our shoot we had 100% of rain all day. It rained and rained. Then it came upon the time of her shoot. Guess what. It STOPPED RAINING! I kid you not. So we hopped in the car and drove out WAY West, like 30 minutes from my studio. We did get one sprinkle. However, this turned into one of my favorite maternity photo sessions ever. The couple I was so lucky to photograph are DARLING! We had a blast. They were game and followed me far away on a tip I could find some beautiful yellow flowers. We already had her in yellow boots with her yellow umbrella, so we all went with it. I have been wanting to do a photo session with an umbrella so this was totally perfect. Plus, who does not love yellow! She was 9 months pregnant! We could not wait any longer. Good thing. She had her baby just a few days ago,  in April  :)  I can’t wait to meet their new blessing.   Ladies, wait until you see how DARLING dad is with mom. You can tell he really loves her!!!!!  Here it rained, as we moved on, the sun came out in full force!
