Last month, I had the awesome opportunity to do my first maternity photo shoot with Heather and Chris Coy. You can see the images from that blog post here. The great thing about maternity sessions is that shortly afterwards, new life is welcomed into the world, and sometimes I have the joy of taking pictures of the baby. That was the case with Joshua Stephen, who was only 12 days old when we took these pictures. What an adorable little guy! Chris and Heather both have plenty of aspirations for their son – one of the most notable is Chris’ desire for another baseball player in the family tree. Heather was happy getting him dressed up in a tie – have to prepare him for the corporate world in case the baseball thing doesn’t work out, right? We enjoyed every moment of both photo sessions with the Coys and can’t wait to get to know Joshua as he grows up!
Our good friends Trent and Amanda asked if we would be willing to do a newborn photography shoot for their beautiful daughter Emerson. We happily obliged – not only is it a joy to take pictures of wonderful, new life, Katie and I really enjoy spending time with the Thompsons and their older daugher, Kinley. Also, I was really eager to try out my new lens. It was my first time working with an infant, so I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. But Amanda was super helpful – she even sent me some picture ideas beforehand and links to a few other blogs with beneficial pointers for baby photography). It took Emerson a little while to calm down, but once she fell back to sleep, the shoot was a breeze. Emerson is 16 days old today – we hope you enjoy her photos.
