Seriously....This Is JOY!

I am not certain that I am even half way "there" yet, or if I'll ever be, but if I could possibly make a living photographing Maternity and Newborns, I would be forever grateful. You might remember my GUSH about my Maternity session I did several weeks back. It was by far the most creatively fulfilling moment thus far in my life. I would be lucky to have an opportunity like that again soon.

Two days ago, I had the extreme pleasure to photograph the tiny product of that belly! I met with mama and Mr. Landon for a little newborn photo session. It didn't go at all like I had planned in my head. Does it ever???? I had hoped for a sleepy newborn, whom I could just plop anywhere and pose. Instead, I got a little grunty boy, who doesn't like to be nakey. He wasn't fond of being out of mama's arms at all. I can't say I blame him. The REAL world is a far cry from the warm, cozy womb.

He was alert, fidgety, and hard to settle. The whole session was difficult, but in the end, I am so pleased with what I got. I am hoping that mom is happy as well. Landon, is a beautiful baby. I felt so blessed to honor this moment in his life. Mom was worried about his flaky, and splotchy skin, but I assured her that I was there to capture the newborn...and let's face it, newborns peel, and have splotchy skin. I love them just the way they are.

I'd love to share with you a few of my faves. It will be hard to choose, but I'll try not to pick too many! I have noticed that Blogger tends to resize my pictures to a size that makes some of my pictures look pixely. :( I am sad for that. I will hopefully figure out a way to make that better soon!

Thanks for letting me share this bundle of BOY!

There is nothing sweeter than baby feet.





The few times he closed his eyes.







This could be my fave






Special time with mama!






Okay, I'll stop! I have so many more. Thank you Mama Tina for allowing me to share these. It is pure joy for me.

He is just precious, Corey! I don't think he looks flaky and splotchy at all! You did a wonderful job! Oh, and if the pics look too pixeled, we can click on them to get a bigger size and see them how they should be.

Oh Corey, I wish with all my heart I lived closer so you could have captured Ali. You take such amazing pictures, you have a wonderful eye!

You would make a perfect maternity/newborn photographer. Is this something you would consider doing exclusively in the future? You would be so fantastic!
