Although I love photographing newborn babies in my studio these days, I still visit the homes of those clients that want me to visit their home for their session. Visiting this family in their home to meet and photograph the newest member was an absolute pleasure. And this little girl was so sweet, and obviously adored by everyone, including big sister and brother!
Just a few images from their in-home session:

Dino Cagno: I have come to understand that costs for internet degree pros tend to be an incredible value. For instance a full Bachelor's Degree in Communication with the University of Phoenix Online consists of Sixty credits from $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online gives a Bachelors of Business Administration with a complete school feature of 180 units and a tuition fee of $30,560. Online learning has made taking your certification far more easy because you can easily earn your current degree from the comfort in your home and when you finish from work. Thanks for other tips I've learned through your website.

Nathanial Marcucci: Do you have a spam problem by this website; I in addition am a blogger, and I was nosy regarding your situation; we have urban a number of fine procedures and we are looking to trade strategies with others, why not speed me an email if interested.

Mellisa Lenior: I'll gear this reassess to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people difficult to choose between a Zune and an iPod. (There are additional players worth considering absent here, similar to the Sony Walkman X, on the contrary I wish this gives you enough facts to compose an educated evaluation of the Zune vs players new than the iPod line as well.)

This is a long overdue post! I have quite a backlog of posts for the blog. I am looking forward to sharing all these sessions with you and will post a few images from each one over the next couple of weeks. My business facebook page has been flooded with images and if you haven’t like that page – Ashley Ward Photography – please go do so! You won’t miss out on the latest over there:)

So, this session was for a very valued client. This was their third session with me and I was so happy to meet the latest precious girl to join their happy brood. The newest daughter was around 7 months and sitting comfortably on her own. This is a perfect time for a baby session. This client decided since her first daughter had a studio session as a baby, and her second daughter had an in-home session as a baby, that doing a combination of both for the third daughter would be a good idea. So that is exactly what we did! I love baby photography sessions. The sitting stage is so precious and one of my favorites to document. Enjoy the images!

I am so excited about all the new bookings for this fall that I have received. I will be taking some vacation/holiday time this year so if you are planning on a session and would like image prior to the winter holidays, do not delay in setting that appointment.

It’s about time I shared another precious newborn baby photography session on my blog! Little man was 2 weeks old the day I visited him and his mommy and daddy at their beautiful home in downtown Columbia. He was a good boy and the whole family, I am sure you will agree, look amazing in their photos.

Every session is unique and no matter how simple or how grand the home or the decor or the wardrobe… matter if it’s a baby boy or a baby girl (or both!)… matter if it is an Itty Bitty Natural Baby Session or a Deluxe Newborn Session… matter if it is a firstborn or there are siblings or pets, I love working with families to give them beautiful portraiture of this blessed time in their lives.

Things I loved about this session:
Baby boy was exceptionally handsome with WONDERFUL hair
Mom & Dad were very easy to work with and took all my direction and coaching extremely well
Beautiful home decorated for the holidays
A pet who agreed to briefly pose with baby…..this time a CAT!
A beautiful nursery filled with furniture and lighting from Restoration Hardware

I hope you enjoy looking through the images. There are more pre-holiday sessions to blog and another newborn session next Monday. And if you are interested in booking a session with Ashley Ward Photography, I am currently taking appointments for January-May:)

Shelby: Amazing session with this handsome little guy and his family. Gorgeous home, beautiful nursery, and that CAT!!! Awesome work Ashley!

Kara Layfield: Ashley - these are perfect in every way!! LOVE the brown and blue. I just adore how you use your environment to it's fullest. LOVE the one with cat - too cute!

Dawn: A. Mazing. As usual. I just love your perspective, clean natural. Love it.

I am so thrilled with how well the Itty Bitty Natural Baby Sessions are going! I love photographing newborn babies so much and it is awesome to be able to offer these session to more new parents!

Look at this little princess! She is so beautiful and slept so well for the first part of our session! She let me wrap her and gently position her in my little bassinet basket without a bit of protest!

I love the outdoor images from this morning session. With the sun coming up behind the home, I was able to photograph the family and the baby in the softer wrapped and bounced light found on the front porch. There was a lovely sweet potato vine there that had really long runners and I found I was able to place the baby bassinet basket right among the runners so that in the images you hardly saw that it was a porch at all! The basket was just surrounded by this gorgeous greenery. I adjusted my camera settings to keep the focus very shallow so that the leaves in the foreground and background would grow increasingly out of focus to add to the dreamy feel of the image.

Now, can we take a second to talk about this client’s dog?!? Oh my gosh! This is the second time I have photographed a family with a puggle who wanted to incorporate them in the images. Both dogs were fantastic and it only took a little patience and teamwork between myself and the client to get the great images. Here is the first puggle + baby image I made:

I LOVED the session, LOVED the images, and LOVED that dog. That image in particular is one of my favorites.

With this new client, their puggle had just turned 1 year old! I was a little concerned about working with a dog this age and getting her to cooperate for the image. However, once again, some experience on my part and a cooperative effort between me and my awesome clients and we were able to get not one great shot, but TWO! I couldn’t be more thrilled. The images are already on my website in my “fur baby” gallery:)

OK, on to the images of the beautiful growing family! Enjoy!!!

Leah Jent: That baby is so beautiful! (Hope my little girl is half as cute!) What a fantastic bunch of images. Your work is just lovely, Ashley!

Lorretta Claes: Great amazing issues here. I am fantastically contented to distinguish your article. Gratitude so much and i'm having a look ahead to contact you. Will you benevolently dive me a e-mail?
