Timeless Simple Six Month Studio Baby Pictures Simpsonville SC

My favorite part of taking Timeless Simple Six Month Studio Baby Pictures Simpsonville SC is getting to know these babies and their family. This little guy is Lachlan. He is a miracle. His story isn’t mine to tell, but there was an extensive surgery and a lengthy NICU stay and lots of prayers and tears. I was able to photograph Lachlan at a little over a month old. This is one of my favorite sets of his images. You can see the rest of Lachlan’s images by clicking here.

You can imagine my joy when I got to see Lachlan again at 6 months old!  There were so many uncertainties with his voice and swallowing and just seeing him here in the studio and hearing him hum, well, frankly it made my year.
Timeless Simple Six Month Studio Baby Pictures Simpsonville SC It helps that Lachlan is one of the cutest babies ever, right? I mean that fussy and those pink cheeks and big brown eyes are just the best features! Timeless Simple Six Month Studio Baby Pictures Greenville SC Six months old is one of my favorite ages to photograph. Babies at this age don’t have separation anxiety (also known as “stranger danger”). Six month old babies are so happy to meet me and think I’m hysterical. They’ve also go SO MUCH PERSONALITY at this age. It’s seriously the best!

Natural Newborn Baby Pictures Greer SCI was so excited to have Nalani back in the studio. You can see her full newborn session by clicking here, but here’s a little peek at her a year ago.  I loved this mauve wrap and headband from her first session and couldn’t resist carrying over the theme with an outfit that matched.

The outfit and wrap are both part of my studio wardrobe and were purchased from the amazing Avonli Baby.  I love providing my clients quality items for their portrait sessions.Simple Rustic One Year Cake Smash Photography Greer SC

Greenville SC Cake Smash PhotographerI tell all my one year clients that their baby will either love the cake and hate the bath or hate the cake and love the bath. Rarely I have a baby who loves or hates both… but generally they love one best. Nalani was definitely more into her bath. I love that the bath gives us some more opportunities for sweet images while giving an active one year old something familiar (water!) to play with.

Her spiky hair, her sweet smile, and her gorgeous profile took my breath away.  And this little yawn was so perfect. Detail Oriented Simple Beautiful Timeless Newborn Girl Photography Hendersonville NC I love capturing these little details for Vida’s mama Shannen to remember. From tiny toes to sweet little pouts each baby is so unique and perfect.
Rustic simple newborn photography Hendersonville NC Vida’s big brother Fox was also the absolute sweetest. He stole some kisses right at the end of the session in this sweet little bed and it was sheer perfection. But Fox was also amazing at the beginning of the photos when we took his portraits with Vida. Shannen and Dan had done such a wonderful job helping Fox prepare for the session. He knew my name and what was expected and was just so excited to hold Vida all on his own. It was the most precious thing.

Newborn session can run really long between feeding and soothing and posing, so Fox actually spent most of the session on an adventure and out to lunch with Dan. I know he enjoyed that one on one time so much! Sibling with newborn photography in Western North Carolina Hendersonville NC Newborn Photographer I know I say this every time I write a blog post, but family images are some of my very favorite. The beauty of the family relationships shines so brightly in images. I always imagine the joy these images will bring the baby when they are going through a rough spot as teenagers. I imagine Vida thinking “Look how much my family loved me right from the start.” I imagine her turning to talk to her parents about her rough day. I think this is the biggest reason it’s so important to display your favorite images in your home. These images bring hope and love and light to you in those hard moments. They can bring courage and joy. This is why I love what I do so much. Western NC Newborn Photographer

Abel is was pretty much the perfect baby. These cheeks, those relaxed hands, the eyelashes, and the sweet millia on his nose make Abel so squeezable.  He’s simply delicious.

I love this series in both color and black and white.  There’s something about black and white on dark backgrounds this is perfectly timeless, a clean and classic look.  I never make my clients choose between color or monochrome images, both are included of every image they selection.

Big Sister and Newborn Photos Greenville SC

Big sister Sloan adored being in images!  She took so much delight in cuddling Abel. Sloan also took direction so well.  It helped a little that Sloan had already met me during their maternity session, but I know a great deal of Sloan’s amazing behavior was due to Whitney following my prep directions.  Sloan knew exactly what was expected of her and that made it easy for her to comply.

Look at these sweet cuddles and family moments!

My favorite images from this session (and almost all of my session if I’m honest) are these of Whitney and Abel.  Nearly every newborn session I have to convince mamas to be in pictures, but they never regret it after the session.  This time with a little one who fits so well into your arms is so fleeting.

Simple Timeless Baby Plan Photography Greenville SC

I have loved working with Devon on Simple Timeless Baby Plan Photography Greenville SC for Grace Anne’s first year. We did a newborn session, a 3 month session, a 6 month session, a 9 month session, and this is our 12 month cake smash session. I can’t believe how quickly time flies! Look at Devon and Grace Anne one year ago and now today. Why don’t babies keep for just a little longer?
Mommy and Newborn baby Pictures Greenville SCSimple Timeless Baby Plan PhotographySimpsonville SC

Grace Anne is Devon’ third baby and we both had a good laugh about how 9/10 month sessions are so much easier than cake smash sessions.  By 12 months, there’s a good deal of stranger anxiety and I always tell mamas that we will catch just about every emotion their 12 month old feels.  Grace Anne proved that theory!

I was so excited when Devon let me create the Swan Lake Ballet themed session of my dreams. It was so fun to put this together!  But I’ll let you in on a little secret. Devon was just inches from Grace Anne during this entire cake eating experience. Ballet Themed Cake Smash Photography Greenville SC Swan LakeSee how close Devon was? I tell my one year old mamas to expect to be on the floor with their little ones.  I love that Devon was still wearing a gown from the studio wardrobe during this time.  These two images are some of my very favorites!
