Tallahassee, Florida| Newborn Lifestyle Portraits
April 15, 2018 Newborn & Family
Little Joy was 14 days new when I came over to meet her and photograph her family. Her big brother is smitten with her and her mama is beaming with… Joy (no pun intended). Little Joy was a little snuggle bunny and quickly fell into a sweet, deep sleep once she was swaddled. Capturing newborn sessions make my heart melt, and this one was so special for a variety of reasons. I’ve known this family for a few years through our church where Amber and Dan work with the middle and high school students. This year, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know Amber much better in the MOPS group we both attend. She’s beautiful inside and out and I’m honored to have been able to photograph them. They’ve made a gorgeous family together and I pray all of life’s blessings on them all.

I’ve been holding onto this beautiful session for a while. I photographed Sarah and Harbor a few months ago and was completely honored when my favorite motherhood online publication accepted my submission for a feature on their blog. It’s such a stunning session and I’m so excited to be among such a beautiful collection of motherhood photographers with a likeminded heart for motherhood and its role.
Please go take a look at my feature on their site and then get lost in all the beauty that The Fount Collective shares. I share my heart for photographing motherhood there and I’d love for you to read it all. Here’s a tid-bit:
“I am passionate about photographing motherhood because I am passionate about the sacred roles of motherhood. Something miraculous happens in our hearts when we have a baby to call our own. A part of us is made awake that seems to have been resting. A dormant, secluded section that, once aroused, quickly seeps to overflowing all other areas of our heart.”

The greatest compliment I can get is a family coming back to me over and over again. It is such an honor to photograph this group. Their oldest son, Ezra, was my FIRST newborn! He’s now 6 years old. In fact, this family is who helped launch me into starting my business and I love them so dearly on so many levels.
Their second son, Milo, just turned three and we met at Cascades Park on a steamy hot morning to take some pictures of him, his big brother, and their beautiful Mama. Age three is so full of spunk. Milo alternated between being a frog, a cowboy, and “a boy named Milo” throughout the session. I love him. His newborn and maternity sessions were some of my favorites.
Happy THIRD birthday, Milo man! You’ll get those three fingers figured out soon enough!
Zoey, Zoey, Zoey. You petite little thing. This doll baby was a sleepyhead for her session. I don’t usually get to photograph sleeping 3 month olds but poor Zoey just couldn’t keep those sweet blue eyes open for a minute longer. Is there anything so peaceful as a sleeping baby? I think not.
Ava, this year is going by entirely too fast! HOW are you already 9 months!?! You have beautiful blue eyes and the softest head of baby hair. You mama and daddy had better be getting ALL the kisses they can!
Sweet, sweet Kolton. You are a doll baby and you are my cousin! We’ve had several new babies in our family this year and to say I’m excited doesn’t do it justice. Round little face, chubby chubby cheeks. I could kiss them all day. I take photos of baby’s toes at every newborn session I do. They are so small, so fully, perfectly formed. Baby toes, and the little wrinkles on the bottoms of their feet just leave me in awe. So much detail. So much perfection in such a small part. If such care was taken on such an unnoticed detail, imagine the planning that went into the character of each child. I’m amazed every time.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” -Psalm 139:13-16
This little girl was just shy of one month old when we took these last week. Her mama is a longtime friend of mine and Abigail is baby number three, and girl number one to join this amazing family. Photographing these two amazing and beautiful ladies was a blessing. Kelli, you’re beaming with joy. Abigail is a precious jewel.
This was also one of the first sessions photographed in my new STUDIO! I’m just a little excited. I’d love to photograph you in it. Be on the lookout for open house info in the coming weeks!
Alex and Kyle are expecting their first baby next month and I photographed them at Dorothy B. Oven Park. That park has been one of my favorites lately. I keep finding new little spots and nooks that I either hadn’t noticed before, or the groundskeepers are sneaky and keep adding. Either way, it’s been my go-to location this spring and I’m really loving it. As for these two, parents-to-be, they were awesome and I have no doubt they will be amazing parents when their little girl arrives. Congratulations, Kyle and Alex! You have so much joy ahead of you!
