New Hampshire Fresh48 Family Photography | Most Photogenic

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, photographing Fresh 48 hospital newborn sessions is so special to me. When I am invited into such a new and sacred space in peoples lives, it means a lot. It was actually the father of the Mommy to be that reached out to Mercy Street Studio to inquire about us photographing his new granddaughter; he lived across country and wasn’t sure he was going to make it out to be here the day she was born and he didn’t want to miss anything! Go ahead…you can say  ‘Awwww!!!” 🙂 I mean how sweet is that?! Once the Mommy to be and I were in contact with each other I realized that she was already overdue with baby! So I got to play the baby waiting game with them, checking my phone every few hours (aka minutes :)) and wondering when this little lady would make her grand entrance! Once she arrived (over a week late!) I was thrilled to finally meet the whole family at the hospital for her first photo session.2018-08-29_0008

This little lady was so photogenic. I’ve never photographed a 2 day old who didn’t make a peep, and made a point to look toward the camera each time I lifted the camera. I could not stop laughing at her little face turning toward wherever I positioned myself. I was lucky enough to be photographing this Fresh 48 newborn session while Auntie and Grandma were there too, and they told me that she gets all her cheekiness from her Momma! 2018-08-29_0012

Wherever she inherited being a photogenic little ham from…she sure loves her Mommy!2018-08-29_0004And because there are few things that make me melt more than a new Dad falling in love with his baby, I can’t resist sharing these sweet photos. I’ll just go ahead and start the chorus of  ‘Awwwww’s!!!” 🙂2018-08-29_0007

I knew that this family also had an in studio newborn session planned with Sarah, our newborn photographer, for the following week and I was so excited to see more of little Chloe the next week…and I think even at only 2 days old, she was excited for another photoshoot!2018-08-29_00142018-08-29_00102018-08-29_0006Thank you again for inviting me to photograph your new family. Fresh 48 newborn sessions are one of my favorites to photograph, and I was honored to get to know your new little family of three!

 

Southern Maine Newborn Photography Session |Smitten

This sweet little girls grandfather is a very talented photographer in our area.  When he chose us to take his granddaughters newborn photographs I was, #1) super honored, followed closely by #2) super nervous.  Just because I so badly wanted to give them amazing photos!  Ya know? yeaton blog-7

Anyhoo.  This little love slept THE ENTIRE TIME.  She let me move her and poser her and wrap her and unwrap her and just made my job so very, very easy.  Thank-you sweet girl!

It was so precious to see this little girl’s mother, father and grandfather all interacting with her.  They are all 100% smitten with her and the love in the room was palpable!

Southern Maine & NH Newborn Photography | Woodland

I love when things just work out.  I remember this sweet boy and his mom in the studio.  She mentioned to me that his nursery was a woodland theme and it just so happened that the prop set ups I had all pulled out went along with that woodsy, natural feel just perfectly.  creighton blog-3

And we also did some blues to go along with the adorable striped hat his Momma brought along.  I just love this boys sweet cheeks and the way his hands form a little heart in the last picture!

Southern Maine & NH Newborn Photographer | Tiny

This sweet girl was UNDER 5lbs.  That brings a new definition to tiny!  I’ll just let you look at the size of her head in comparison to the size of her mother’s hands and let that sink in for a minute… perkins blog-8

She wasn’t born super early and she is perfectly, wonderfully healthy.  She just comes in a sweetly small package!  What a joy she and her family were to photograph!

Southern Maine & NH Newborn Photographer | Outside my Box

“I USED THE MUSTARD!!!” was my excited text to Erin just after this shoot.  Do you ever think of something in your head, or dream of something, but then never quite have the gumption to carry it out?  Well, I love these rich golden flowers and knit layer that I made to go with them.  But they had just been sitting in my piles of goodies, never seeing the light of day because I didn’t quite have the gumption to bring them out.  I thought maybe they’d be to bold.  But then I just did it.  And I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the resulting images.  Let that be a lesson to me to step out of my box more often!weigner blog-6

Could this sweet little girl be any more gorgeous?  I think not.

I positively adore the variety we were able to achieve in this gallery.  From rich yellows, to pastel pinks and lilacs, on to olive greens and neutrals.

I still can’t decide if I like color or B&W of this image better.  Good thing they get both with the full gallery!

And this sweet, sleepy little smirk!?  I die!
