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!

Colorado Springs Lifestyle Newborn Session || The Osburn Family
It is truly amazing to be given the honor of capturing a family as they grow and change. This year, I got to capture the Osburn family while they anticipated their little one's arrival, as they welcomed Evangeline into the world, and then finally during a lifestyle newborn session when sweet Evan was just three weeks old. There's nothing like a household that has just welcomed a new baby. The changing and feeding and crying is all a part of the day-to-day - and so is the snuggling and kissing and shushing. Add in two very excited older siblings and, well, there's just a lot of energy in the house. That sweet newborn phase - it's hard an ...

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 ...

Five Minute Project || Waking the Baby One Year Later
The other morning - at 6:45am - my littles were being especially sweet and I couldn't resist the opportunity to sneak in and complete a little 5 minute project photo session with them. These photos were taken almost exactly one year after the photos from this post - and I really can't believe the difference that one year makes. These two little ones have certainly changed in that short year, but I can honestly say that they still adore each other as much as they did one year ago. Briggs still loves to sneak in a greet his sister as soon as he hears her stirring and he often insists that he must be the one to give her her first kiss of the ...
