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!

Southern Maine & NH Newborn Photographer | Not So Newborn

This gorgeous mamma contacted us about doing a studio newborn photo shoot with her handsome, handsome two month old.  (As a little background info, IDEALLY we like to schedule studio newborn photo shoots when your baby is between 7-10 days old.  This is when they are the most sleepy and curly and we are most likely to be able to get all of those those newborn poses you see so often.)  Of course, we couldn’t guarantee any of those curly, squishy, naked poses for a two month old, but we were totally game to capture this sweet one and his mamma in whatever way we could.  So, not knowing exactly what to expect we jumped right in and started with some adorable awake shots! Oh that eye contact!johnson

There never has been a cuter bear.

And then, what do you know?  Little man fell sound asleep and we actually put him in some of the newborn poses I never actually thought we’d get with him!  I just love when things all come together!  And let me tell you, two month old baby rolls have NOTHING on 1 week old baby rolls!  Just look at those cheeks!johnson-7

He so clearly loved being in his Mamma’s arms!  It was truly precious and humbling to be a part of capturing and freezing these moments in time.johnson-3johnson-4johnson-2

Southern Maine Newborn Photographer | Froggy Pose

See this sweet little nugget below?  She is in what is called “Froggy Pose”.  (Yes, there are names for newborn photography poses.)  I usually don’t do Froggy Pose because it requires an assistant and I don’t work with one right now.  Thankfully, I am trained and practiced in this pose, so when this gorgeous couple specifically requested it and brought mom’s stunning wedding gown to use with it, we were able to create it for them.  I briefed dad on his role as baby spotter/supporter, he did a fantastic job, baby cooperated and this lovely images was the result.  I was so happy to be able to do this for them.  georges blog-3

I need you to know that the baby is NEVER left alone in this pose.  She is always supported by the hands of an assisting adult.  Multiple photographs are taken and then during editing, I merge two phpo together to create the image you see here.

And here are just a few samples of the many other beautiful images of this little princess and her family.  georges blog-6

New Hampshire Newborn Photography

This sweet baby girl is the youngest of all her cousins.  And, thus far, among her sibling and cousins, she is the only girl.  Subsequently, mom and dad were on board for all things girly in her photo shoot.  Just look at that pucker.  I can’t get enough!GilpatrickBlog-15

Big brother was in our studio just 19 months ago for his newborn session.  I’m not sure he’s quite sure what to make of this newest addition yet.  But as you can see, she’s growing on him.  GilpatrickBlog-2GilpatrickBlog-3GilpatrickBlog-4

This sweet girl slept through the whole session.  I kept thinking she’d need to eat, but pose after pose she proved me wrong and slept so heavily!

Big brother loved anything that had to do with balls.  He spied every single one in the studio within seconds of arriving.  So this impromptu image seemed so fitting.GilpatrickBlog-6

And here’s the whole happy clan!GilpatrickBlog-8
