YOU GUYS!!!!!! Maternity is one of my absolute favorite sessions to photograph- it encompasses so much beauty, love and light. It captures one of the most incredible times in a woman’s life- the one where she is 2 people (sometimes more, lol), she is growing abundant and beautiful life within her and with it comes so much beauty and joy. Saying this, One of my favorite locations has to be Arabia Mountain on any day whether sunny or cloudy but, capturing that golden sun setting from the mountain tops the cake. I am so thrilled to share some of my recent favorite images with you all!!!!!!! ENJOY!!!!
Y'all!!!!!!!!!! Baby Ridge was a total dream baby!!!! Amazing head of hair, super sleepy and chill (this is pretty rare!!!). Newborn photography is more than a job for me but, a passion and a love. I get to see these sweet little miracles and this new and beautiful love their parents are experiencing. Parenthood is such a journey and rollercoaster of amazing emotions that are unfathomable until your in the thick of it. I get all the feels during my newborn sessions- that rush of love and emotions rush back as I have experienced these new emotions of a new baby 3 times now!!!
Baby Ridge and his mommy and daddy got to be the very FIRST family to be photographed in my newly styled lifestyle room!!!! This is where the majority of my parent shots will now take place. I get to capture more candid moments and we can all start our session together relaxed. I LOVE the bohemian style feel of this area and I hope you do too!!! Check out some photos from Baby Ridge's newborn session!

Meet baby Clara Faye (seriously, how cute is her name!!!). She was a sweet little princess that just wanted mommy to snuggle her the whole time <3 Which made for some seriously awesome shots!!! I LOVE this sweet family and was way BEYOND excited when she told me not only was she expecting..but expecting a baby GIRL (she has a little man too.) As a momma of 3 boys my heart does a happy dance when I get to play with a baby girl in the studio!!! It's so fun to get to use the pinks/purples...yellows and sweet headbands. Clara looked AHMAZING in pink. Take a peek into what our session together was like.
MEET Baby BENNETT!!!! I have to put his name in ALL caps because...well...he was kind of a big deal. Bennett came earthside at a whooping 11.5 lbs...and shout out to his momma because she did it with no epidural! Now, lets preface with saying...big babies are usually not a fan of being moved..posed...and anything and everything I do during a session. Big babies are all about their food so.....a lot of stuff we had to do with him wrapped up nice and tight. He was so stinking cute and cuddley though so I couldn't even be mad about it ;). I think we were all surprised with what we DID get though. Take a sneak peak into our session with baby Bennett below.
Meet sweet baby Harper!!! She was a total dream boat in the studio. Not only was our session a blast but, seeing the glow on a new moms face is something that drives me to give them the best images I possibly can. My sweet families will have these memories..moments and details for the rest of their lives, not to mention they are generational. Didn't you LOVE to look at photo albums from your childhood, or your parents and their parents?? I know I sure did!!! I love that I am giving my clients THOSE moments and memories to last them a lifetime. Harper not only had the most beautiful coloring but she looked so beautiful on every drop and prop I put her in/on!!! Take a peak into our session below.
Sweet baby Sebastian!!!!!!! He was a dreamy little doll for his newborn session and big sis was SO thrilled to snuggle up to her new baby for pictures!!! I loved the diversity of our session from posed to lifestyle-esque for family. I am SOOOO thrilled with the new white room/bed set up in the studio, its the BEST addition I could have added. Take a peak to see what we did below!!! <3 ENJOY!
There are some things in life that come exactly when they are supposed too- meet sweet Brinley, Brinley was 8 days old and AMAZING for her very first photoshoot. This sweet little baby girl didn't mind being posed, moved or wrapped one bit. Mom was SOOOO excited that she booked me at only 15 weeks pregnant!! She knew that ANP studios was a perfect match for her and her blooming family and, I am so glad she did! Giving families these life long memories to have and to cherish is what makes every thing hard about this job SO worth it. I sit back and think to myself "I can't believe this is MY career, how did I get SO lucky?" Take a peak into our sweet session together and you will see exactly what I mean.
So fresh and SO new!!!!!!
These sessions have a special place in my heart. These little humans are brand.spanking.new. A fresh 48 session is where I come to the hospital and photograph the baby within 48 hours of their birth. I get all the details..hospital bands, little itty bitty details, extra wrinkley toes and just ALL the sweet newness of your little love. These shoots are very simple yet very important. These sessions help you remember things you WILL forget. These session bring you back to that magical moment as you look back on them, and they almost make you crave those moments. I can almost smell the new baby now <3
Take a peak into what a fresh 48 session looks like. Enjoy <3
LOOK WHO IT IS!!!!! ITS HENLEY!!!!
Remember the adorable red headed baby a little over a year ago?? Who's momma also happens to be the well known Happily Hughes. Little miss Henley was a total show off and diva. This little lady was not thrilled about the photos, and she totally had her own plans in mind. She wanted to prove who was boss and guess what...she sure did!!!!! I have loved watching this sweet thing grow up. I can't believe how fast time has gone by <3
Here is an extended sneak of Miss Henley's 1 year photos.
Say HI to sweet baby Laney!!!!
I can't believe how well this little gorgeous gal did for her newborn photography session!
At almost 2 weeks old I did not expect her to sleep well for her session. It had just been that kind of month where all the babies that walked into the studio had major FOMO (fear of missing out). She did so well and barely moved a muscle and I was sad to see her go when our session was over.
I hope you enjoy an extended sneak peak of her newborn session!
