I am so, so excited about this grandma & me session! The connection between a grandma and her grandchild is a special one. I was the first grandchild on my mom’s side, and I was always extremely close to my grandma. She is gone from us now, but how I wish I’d had photos like this of the two of us together, to see that special bond we shared. I know sweet Annora will cherish these always, and I hope her amazing grandma will as well!

Annora is only about 2 months old, but she is already growing so much since her newborn session. It was so amazing to see her again.

Cooper was the second model baby for my mentee and I. He has such an adorable little face – just look at him!

I had lots of opportunities to snuggle this sweet baby during our time, and it was so wonderful. Snuggling babies is one of my favorite parts of this job. It really doesn’t get much better than that.

I loved it when he gave us that sweet little smile…

Newborn hair is something I always try to capture as well. By the time babies reach their first birthday, their  hair often looks very different. Sometimes it changes colors, sometimes they get little thin spots from sleeping on one side, and other times they get a ton more of it. Regardless of how it changes, the one sure thing is that it *will* change.

Look at his sweet little profile!

By the end of the session, Cooper was done with us. 🙂 That said, we still managed to get a couple photos on white, as well. This little hand dimples and wrinkles make me melt!

All in all, it was a great day, and a great start to the mentoring days with Tiffany! We were also joined by my friend Jill, who wanted to come watch as well. I am so glad Tiffany got a chance to see that sometimes babies sleep, and sometimes they fuss, and both are perfectly normal responses, by a baby, to a session. Babies will be babies, and however they are on their session day, is exactly how they are meant to be. 🙂

Eloise did such a fantastic job for her 6 month baby pics! She was so happy and content the entire time.

Here eyes are also so bright blue!

I also love her wispy hair. Baby hair is the sweetest.

She made some funny faces, and I’m so glad I caught them!

It was also super sweet to watch her mother and father playing with her. It’s so amazing to see the bond that only grows stronger with each passing month. Parents who are smitten with their newborns are even so much more so by their milestone sessions.

Would you look at this sweet little man? I had so much fun doing natural posing with PJ. He couldn’t have been any more perfect! Look at this face!

He didn’t stay awake too long, and I was able to capture some of his perfect new baby details, like fingers and toes.

One of the things I love about natural baby posing, is it allows babies to just be babies! We get to photograph these little movements, like this one here. Newborns love having their hands by their faces, so capturing that is a must.

I was also impressed with big sister’s behavior. She was such a good little listener the entire time she was involved. Anyone who spends time working with kiddos this age, particularly those who have just become big siblings, can attest that it does not always work out that way! sweet little girl head shot

She did such a great job holding him, too!

I also loved this family’s nursery. I go to a lot of nurseries, and most are gray, blue, or pink. The green featured in this nursery was so beautiful! It was the perfect pop of color to serve as a backdrop to the photos we took in there. Edwardsville newborn photographer
