Newborn Session, Leighton: NJ Newborn Photographer

all 3 kids pic

Long before I had Leighton, I was planning out her newborn photos. Of course in my mind they were all going to be extreme examples of what I would love to do with clients babies but was too afraid to try. However being just one week postpartum I had to simplify my ideas.

I ended up shooting these over the course of a week, while I was still recovering. Thankfully Leighton was patient with me while I dressed and undressed her like a baby doll.

It’s hard for me to look at these even now- because I’m still working on getting our lives back in order, but I’m grateful to have gotten to photograph my kids during this very special time.

Leighton hasn’t been given a place on our picture wall yet- so ordering these prints should help accomplish that task!

Dressing babies as tiny animals is, a small obsession of mine. Matt thinks it boarders on wacky, but I really do love it. I mean when else can you be a tiny baby lamb?

Getting the big kids to participate caused me to break out into hives. Honest to God it was 90 degrees outside and I snapped these in about 5 minutes. that’s all the patience we had combined. I came out of Leighton’s room sweating and annoyed.

Gracen ripped that headband and dress of moments after these shots were taken. We’ll try again for #fallfamilyphotos

These pictures of the girls together were¬† taken after we all calmed down. Jude was napping- and I asked Gracen to take just a few more with her baby sister. I’m so grateful for these photos. It wasn’t the planned outfit or headband- but they’re my most favorite because I know how badly Gracen wanted a baby sister. I’m so excited for these two as they grow up together. I think having a sister is so special and I believe they’ll always be close with their brother too. I’m glad I had my camera out, ready to capture these moments.
