California Boys | Lexington, KY Family Photographer

These shaggy haired, sun-kissed California boys were equally sweet and fun to photograph! Lots of giggling, running around and flashing muscles.  I love photographing these ages!  I think it is so special when generations get together for family pictures.  I love to think about how these photos will be treasured.

Surprise! | Lexington Maternity and Newborn Photographer

It’s been raining newborns around here lately! I am getting my baby fix this summer and will surely get another dose with the impending arrival of my new nephew soon! I will be in the delivery room photographing his birth – cannot wait!

On to this sweet family…

The majority of the time my maternity and newborn inquiries come from Moms, but that was not the case here! Dad inquired and planned the entire maternity session as a surprise for his wife! We even texted outfit selections for her to wear so he could have them ready when he reveled his big plan! How sweet!
The newborn session was equally as sweet! As with a lot of newborn sessions, there are glowing grandparents excited to help and witness the first photo session. When this grandmother snuck in for a 3 generations shot, magic happened when the biggest newborn grin unfolded in front of my lens!

Made With Love

Want to know how to make a newborn sleep through an entire session?  This sweet redhead snoozed the whole time while listening to the celtic harp on Pandora! Her Mommy and Daddy found just the right white noise and it certainly worked to lull this little one right to sleep.  I might have to start using that at other newborn sessions!

I traveled up to Louisville, KY  for this newborn session after photographing their maternity portraits here in Lexington.  It’s always fun meeting an expecting couple and photographing them before and after the baby’s arrival.   (Psst … Did you know you can add on an exclusive mini maternity session to any newborn session?)

Sweet Cheeks | Lexington Baby Photographer

Look at this sweet girl!  It’s exciting getting to see the newborns I shoot come back for their 6 month mini session.  I love watching them grow!

Swaddled With Love | Lexington Newborn Photographer

Excited to share this newborn session with you today.  Gorgeous family, lots of love, and the sweetest baby.  They made my job easy!

Don’t forget, it’s best to book your newborn session while you are still pregnant.  I just pencil in your due date and as soon as baby makes his or her arrival, we schedule your session. It’s best to photograph newborns within the first couple of weeks.  Booking ahead guarantees you a place on my calendar!
