A Lifestyle Newborn Session || Welcome Miss Everleigh

Lifestyle

I’ve got to be honest here – when it comes to posing newborns, I am at a loss. Ask me to put a baby in a basket or a football helmet or a bowl of apples, and you’ll see me heading for the door. But lifestyle newborn sessions? Oh how I love them.

I love the little glimpse into a family’s life. Newborns bring a certain bit of mess and chaos that is somehow also sweet and precious.   The baby monitors, tiny diapers, receiving blankets and piles of laundry are real life. They show how it is when a 7.5lb human makes her way into a new family. I love to capture this – and the rocking and the shushing and the outfit changes. It’s all so beautiful and fleeting.

In early December, little miss Everleigh made her way into the Connover family. She was welcomed by not only her adoring parents, but also by two amazingly kind big brothers. I tell you what, I’ve never had a two-year-old so enthusiastic about photos as Elliott was on the day of our shoot. He absolutely stole the show!

There’s no doubt that the new little miss is loved and cherished – and that she has many fun and happy days ahead of her as a part of this clan!

Miss Geneva [First Month of Life]
I promise I won't give you a month-by-month play of my child's life. But this first month, you guys. Oh my gosh. So sweet and tender and snuggly and full of newness. I just had to share. And if you make it all the way through this photo overload, there might just be something in it for ya. If you're up for a little contest that is.Okay, now for the contest. Wanna play? I'd like you to take a guess at how many photos I took of this babe during her first month of life. Just take a stab at it. Then head over to my Good Photo Facebook Page, like that page, and then post your guess in the comments of the link to this blog post. The person ...

Downtown Colorado Springs with the Carew Family
It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Why, you ask. Well, this family photo session in downtown Colorado Springs included BOTH ice-cream (hooray!) and a wasp sting (boo.). We started out enjoying some amazingly vibrant fall leaves. Things were going well until sweet big-sister Isabel discovered that those beautiful leaves were housing some of last year's wasps that WOULD NOT DIE! (Remember the fall of the wasp attacks??) The brave girl endured a painful sting to her finger and then continued to smile (after a few rightfully-earned tears) for the rest of the photos there. Thankfully, mama Shannon had requested that we e ...

Colorado Springs Home Birth || Welcome Evangeline
I've been anticipating the arrival of this little one for months - and when her mama asked me to be there for her Colorado Springs home birth, I was over the moon! For WEEKS I sprinted to my phone every time it rang and slept with it right next to my pillow. So when Emily called me just after midnight on March 23, I was pretty much half way out the door before she even told me she was in labor. Emily, the world's most fabulous doula, knows a lot about birth and babies. She's helped many, many moms and dads bring their little ones into the world. I was so honored and excited to be a part of the team of people that would be there for her ...
