Sneak Peek: Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions! | Baby Photographers Plattsburgh NY

As most of you know, we do mini sessions twice a year and they’re big, multiple day events that typically book up just as fast as we announce them! I’ve had the passing idea to do mini sessions more frequently throughout the year but didn’t want to overwhelm clients with options nor be known as just a mini-session photographer. Because there is a time for a mini session, and there are times for full sessions and it’s the full sessions that allow us to truly express our creativity, connect with clients and capture those amazing milestones and moments.

So with interest peaked for a Valentine’s Day Mini, we offered these up to our 2013 newborns as a way to capture their first Valentine’s Day.  Just a short and sweet session to capture one of the few “firsts” since they pass so quickly! It was quite challenging to put together a set that still sticks to our simple and timeless style but I was able to scrounge up enough props and crafts to pull it all together with about 12 hours to spare before the first session! Thank goodness I work well under pressure 😉

These little cuties sure didn’t disappoint as it was a fun day moving quickly between props and pulling foam hearts out of little mouths 🙂 Here’s just a peek at the adorableness that ensued!  And yes, I’m contemplating Easter minis in just a few months! What do you think?

Sneak Peek: Baby Grant! | Newborn Photographers in Plattsburgh

This handsome little guy was the perfect way to kick off my Friday last week! Grant arrived at the studio and was fast asleep before we knew it, allow us to cruise right through the first half of his session without him evening batting an eye.  Mom and Dad say he’s the spitting image of his big brother as a newborn so it’ll be interesting to watch him grow and see if he remains his brother’s clone or if he develops his own unique look.  Genetics fascinate me when it comes to these brand new babies! And no, they certainly do not all look the same! Not. even.close 😉

Here’s handsome little Grant, 10 days new.

Sneak Peek: Greta is One! | Baby’s First Birthday Photographers in Plattsburgh

This little lady is as cute at one as she was at a week old! Greta came back to the studio this past weekend to celebrate her first birthday! She played shy for a bit but warmed up quickly with a couple of tickles from dad.  While she seemed to like the candle more than the cake, we had  a blast with her cake smash session! I love when babies first dig into the cake and look to mom or dad for approval to get messy, which is that second shot below.  When no one stops them from diving in, they go for it!

Sneak Peek: Baby Payton! | Newborn Baby Photographers in Plattsburgh

This little lady just couldn’t wait to make her entrance into the world! While waiting for mom to dilate further before administering the epidural, the nurses came back to the room to discover that Ally had progressed from a 3 to a 10 in less than an hour. They then asked her if she was ready to meet her baby girl! While the thought of no epidural was admittedly scary, Ally flipped that tough-momma switch on and in just ten minutes was holding her baby girl in her arms!  Isn’t that incredible?! The strength of these women in these life changing moments always has me in awe of what our bodies are capable of.

Payton is an absolutely stunning little lady with a head full of hair and gorgeous, thick and long lashes! She was oh so sweet to me too and we cruised right through her session!  Here’s just a peek at Payton, 13 days new.

Introducing Baby Dominic! | Newborn Baby Photographers Plattsburgh

This little guy joins two gorgeous big sisters to round out this perfect family of five! Dominic was super tiny, weighing it 5.5lbs, but he didn’t want to wait any longer before coming into the world.  His parents made it to the hospital with about 40 minutes to spare before he was born!

Dominic had the softest little cry, which I’m sure has already fully developed into something much louder in order to compete with his busy sisters! Here’s a look at some of my favorite images from his session at just 9 days old.
