I’m so very excited to share this recent newborn photography session I did for some of my friends from college. In ten years, they’ve gone from pulling all nighters studying and celebrating (usually with me), to staying up all night with a sweet, sweet newborn baby boy. I couldn’t be happier for these two – they’re fantastic people and wonderful parents, full of lots of love to share with their new baby, Miles.

This session was held at their home, and we chose to split this session into two parts; lifestyle & styled/studio. I have a mobile-studio that makes it easy on new moms – No packing or traveling necessary!

Here is the GORGEOUS new mama and her sweet baby boy. I love this closeup family shot, focusing on baby Miles, too.


Each of my sessions comes with both color and rich black and white images. I can never decide which I like best, so I always include both!


Above are some sweet family shots, with their “puppy”, Dexter!

Below is one of my absolute favorite images from the session. It is completely unlike a “normal” newborn portrait, but there’s something about its simple artistic quality that I just really love.


We did 4 different studio setups throughout the session, including two basket setups.


I just love how I was able to get Miles to hold hands with his teddy bear. It melts my heart! <3


Nothing cuter than newborn toes, am I right? 


I’ll leave off with one more family portrait – a perfect little family. <3


Congratulations to these new parents, Ben & Fran. Love you guys! I’m so happy for you & so honored to be your newborn photographer!
