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!

This sweet family has a little brother on the way and what a blessing it was to spend a morning with them capturing them as they are today. Big sister, Brooklee,  has some of the most beautiful hair I've ever seen and was not at all interested in our photo session until the session involved running. She must be two. :) Little Brother, on the other hand, was quite excited to have me there. He moved and kicked and stretched his way through the morning. Oh how I love that he was making his presence known from inside his mama's belly. It was as if he was saying, "I am here. I am a life. I am already a part of this family." I'm praying for t ...

I first met Kirsten 4-ish years ago when I arrived at the 5:45 am spin class she was teaching at the YMCA - and she's kicked my booty in that class nearly every Wednesday morning since then! Though it's early and dark and cold and often hard to wake up for, I look forward to that workout each week and am never disappointed that I showed up! I was so excited for Kirsten when she announced that she was expecting a little girl and was THRILLED when she asked me to capture her beautiful, curly-headed bundle of joy once she arrived. Kirsten and Cameron are such good parents and it was so fun to see the way they calmly cared for little Kiara. I ...
