After a very long labor, Lauren and Derek welcomed their first child into the world. Chloe was born the end of March at 19 inches and 7 lbs 7 oz. Lauren was so happy to have her healthy baby girl in her arms and thought "wow, she's so big". Now, two months later, she happily looks back at Chloe's newborn photos and realizes how quickly they grow...and how tiny she really was!
A week later, I welcomed Chloe, Lauren, and Derek into my studio for Chloe's big day! She was very sweet and amazingly alert for just one week old. Something tells me she will be smart like her momma! Lauren was prepared and relaxed for the session. Of course, she was worried about Chloe not cooperating or peeing on me...but as I assure everyone...I expect it! Lauren was happy with the time and patience I took during their session...and look at some of the great memories we captured!
Most new mom's are worried about how their newborn will do during the session. Newborn sessions are an investment, so its important that you feel comfortable with your photographer! Lauren said, "I was mostly worried that [Chloe] would be fussy, which she was, but Kirsten was super patient with her. I was also nervous that I was going to look enormous after having the baby a week prior, but Kirsten made me look amazing. I couldn’t be happier with how the pictures came out." As a mom of three, I completely understand!
On an unseasonably warm day in May, I had the pleasure of meeting the Day Family, with their newest addition. Emma was just 22 days new and super adorable! The lifestyle session was perfect because, when fussy, it allowed her to be in comfortable surroundings in their beautiful Canton home, cradled by mom and dad. Emma napped off and on, swaddled and held by her parents for the first part of the session. Then, we were able to capture some solo images of Emma.
Lifestyle sessions bring a warmth to newborn sessions. The pictures that result are personal and familiar. What wonderful memories to capture and pass to future generations.
Little Miss Emerson...what can I say...the girl has personality! At just 10 days new, she was the most alert and curious newborn I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. She was interesting in lifting her head to peer around. I think she is preparing to be on her toes as the fourth little girl in her family!
She fooled me with big yawns a few times, but she did eventually fall asleep when swaddled tight. I think she wanted to be part of the experience and not miss a thing! It was a pleasure to photograph Emerson and her family, here in my Attleboro, MA studio. I can't wait to see how her personality blooms as she grows!
Please enjoy a sampling of her newborn gallery!
Older newborns can be a challenge to photograph. They are just starting to explore the world with their hands and feet, they like to stay alert for longer periods, and they aren't as easily manipulated while asleep. So, while an older newborn session may not flow the same as a baby between 3-10 days old, they provide variety to the traditional newborn session.
William came to KM Photography at 7 weeks old. He was very happy to lay on the floor and look around. His curious eyes would light up as mom played with him on the floor. We even got some nice smiles! He wasn't thrilled about leaving Mom and Dad's arms while asleep...he knows just where he wants to be...but we eventually got him in a deep enough sleep to not realize he had left their arms. Here are some of our favorites from William's session.
Welcome to the world, little guy!
I am a photographer in Plainville, MA serving southeastern Massachusetts, RI, and southern NH. I have a deep passion for capturing memories. Each photograph freezes a moment in time so that it may never be forgotten. I hope to create legacies that tell stories for generations.
