It was my pleasure to meet and work with this lovely family today. Their precious baby boy is about 5 weeks old and just as sweet as he can be! And he is a lucky boy – so loved.

Mom is an interior decorator so I had no doubt I would have fun with the props she would come up with. And she definitely did not disappoint! We started the session at a lovely town park and finished up in the warmth of their home. It was hard (and totally wonderful) work keeping this little guy sleeping, but well worth the effort! And all the extra soothing and holding ensured that I got an awesome baby fix today:)

Mom and Dad, I hope you enjoy this preview. Have 25 unique friends and family members leave a comment on this post along with their email address, and you’ll get a 5×7 gift portrait of your choice on me!!!

Ashley-admin: I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments for this family and on the photography!

Linda Welsford: Absolutely adorable and outstanding photography.

Yesterday we got rained out! Unfortunately, the risk comes with the territory of being a location photographer. The skies were pretty gloomy all day, but due to mom’s busy schedule we crossed our fingers and hoped for the best. The rain began to fall as we made our way to a new location my wonderful husband helped me scout out before the session. But mom and dad were troopers and were willing to let me see what I could get with the little sprinkle falling. When it became heavy enough that I could actually see the drops in camera (see the last image here – look closely in the open space to the right), I decided we would have to try for another day. Still, I managed to capture some pretty sweet moments in our short time in the orchard yesterday and wanted to share them with mom and dad here.

Looking forward to finishing this session with you at a later date. Thanks for being willing to brave the elements with me:) F is absolutely adorable and I look forward to working with him again very soon!

I truly love newborn photography! I recommend newborn session within the first 2 weeks of life…..but things don’t always work out that way. This little man made it to 6 weeks before his newborn photo shoot. I can’t always guarantee the curly, sleepy, newborn photos at this age, but with a lot of patience and a little luck, we were able to capture him just the way mommy and daddy wanted:) He was such a good boy….and so very handsome!

Thank you, mom and dad, for the opportunity to capture this awesome time in your lives! Have 25 unique friends or family members post a comment here with their email address and receive a 5×7 gift print of your choice on me:)
