Newborn Photos

I am just getting my feet wet in the photography business, but I’ve been taking photos for as long as I can remember. This is one of my first sessions for a client and I would love to share it on Spearmint.

Mason was just 5 days old when we did the shoot at Kaycee and Kevin’s house. They are so laid back and I felt that their bedroom would be the best space to capture their relaxed family. Mason is their first baby and you could just feel the love and wide-eyed amazement of these new parents. I particularly loved how Mason was already so attached to his Momma. So many of the shots turned out to be him just locked on his mom’s eyes. There is nothing quite like that connection.

Thanks so much!

Newborn Photos

Christina Whittaker photographed this beautiful newborn session with 5 day old baby Jillian. It turned out so beautiful and I asked Christina to share some of the details:

Kacey, Jillian’s mom, is an Etsy seller and owns Elizabeth Rae Crafts, so I knew this newborn session would be full of goodies. Five days after baby Jillian was born, I came over to photograph her. She is SO beautiful and perfect. I picked her up and couldn’t even feel her weight in my arms, she was so tiny! You forget just how small they start out. Kacey crocheted the grey headband and coral beanie in preparation for Jillian’s arrival. She also made the teal elastic & cotton grey headband; she’s such a crafter! Kacey made Jillian’s baby quilt just after the baby shower. She had each guest bring a square of fabric to the shower, and she incorporated each one into the quilt. Such a special touch! Even when she was pregnant, she knew Jillian would be a princess, so she bought a yellow baby crown at Gap. It was so cute and floppy on the baby, she looked like a little flower! Lastly, Kacey bought a stamped ring on Etsy from Galway Designs with Jillian France’s name on it. Such a sweet accessory!
