9 Days New at Faces You Love

Newborn Photographer in Kansas City

At 9 days new, sweet little William & his family came by the studio for his first Watch Me Grow session. After getting to photograph his big sister through her first year of life, I was especially excited to meet this little guy and reconnect with the rest of the family! Plus, so happy they chose me to be their newborn photographer again!

Big sister, now 2 years old, was so amazingly sweet with her little brother! When working with toddlers and newborns, I never know what to expect (and I tell that parents that). This sweet girl was all about snuggling him though, and it was a magical few minutes that she was in that chair (with mom and dad just out of the frame in case the exchange went south)!

Also, William acted very similarly to the way his sister did at her newborn session…. awake a lot {wink} With patience though, all ended just beautifully!

Seriously excited to be working with this family over the next year! I think he’s pretty happy about it too!

Cake Smash & One Year Session


Baby Photographer Faces You Love

And yet another Watch Me Grow plan baby has tuned 1 and graduated from his plan…
Someone hold me – I have such a love/hate relationship with watching these babies grow in front of my camera! I love every single moment until the time comes to hand off the finished product of their entire first year, then I get all sad and nostalgic.
I’ve loved getting to know this sweet little family over the last year! Did you know they started out as one of my Red Thread adoption families? You can see that first session (newborn!) here.

His first birthday had been a monkey themed one, and his mama loved the idea of a brightly colored background for the cake smash part of his session. Some fun green, twisted branches, and bright balloons later…

While this little sweetheart sure gave me a run for my money at her session last month, her gallery did not disappoint! I think she spent more time awake than asleep here, and was cluster feeding on top of that. Throw in a whole lot of patience though…

As you’ll see from the favorites shared here, there were plenty of gorgeous, sweet images to choose from, and her parents promptly had me put all of their favorites into one of my beautiful 10×10 standard albums.
