In the previous post, I shared some of my favorite images from this family’s maternity session.  Now I get to show you the outcome — an adorable little guy named Grady..

..who was not a fan of trying to be stuffed into a stocking.. But, I thought this would make an awesome Christmas card with, “Silent Night??” written with it.  Poor baby..

I met Georgia while getting my hair done at a local salon (Cameo Salon in Fuquay — I highly recommend it!), and let’s just be honest.. she’s gorgeous.  We went to one of my favorite locations down here to take her maternity portraits in a rustic, farm setting.  They might be my favorite to date.maternity fuquay varina holly springs nc photographyI love the simplicity of a white maternity dress.  I love the long grass.  I love the setting sun.  Love. Love. Love.

It was a perfect fall evening with a lovely mama to be, and a jokester of a daddy to be.  🙂 And.. soon came Grady Paul..

Ok, where were we?  If you missed my last post, it recapped some of my favorite images from early 2014.  We are almost to summer where these pick up!


 

You know when you meet people and you just instantly click?  That is what happened with this family.  They were so down to earth and up for whatever, it made the session go so smoothly.. not to mention their daughter is gorgeous.. seriously.  She wasn’t a fan of being naked.. that’s for sure.  We had to make due with lots of wrapping and set-up changes!

This little bundle of cuteness was a Belly to Baby baby, so I had already met their mom and dad previously.  This was the first time I tried a baby on a prop like this… no worries.. safety precautions were taken.  Mom was sitting literally a hands distance away just in case he was startled.  Since he was a pretty chill baby, this pose worked for him.  If he had been more alert, I wouldn’t have even attempted it.  Newborn safety is my #1 concern. 🙂newborn photography fuquay-varina nc


This mom came in for a newborn session and she wanted a canvas collage of all these sweet baby parts.  I thought it was a fantastic idea.  I put together a canvas image, and after several emails and adjustments later, this is what we came up with.  I should really give mom credit here — her canvas collage composition is way better than my original 🙂  I love the belly button in the middle! What a great addition to a nursery to treasure! newborn collage fuquay varina nc


This is the sweetest picture to me for a few reasons.  One, this is a dear friend of mine who is absolutely the sweetest person I have ever met in my life.  Second, her and her husband tried really hard to get pregnant several times, one time even succeeding with twins only for it to end in heartbreak.  She was able to get pregnant again and finally got the baby she had prayed for.  lifestyle newborn session fuquay varina nc


Ok, I’m getting mushy here writing these posts.  I met this mom for a maternity and then newborn shoot.. if you come to the studio you’ll see her cutie pie on a canvas!  She wanted to have an in-home shoot to get some updated pictures.  One thing she particularly said was that her girl was getting so big that soon she wouldn’t be nursing anymore and wouldn’t want to be rocked like a baby.  I loved that I could capture this eye contact so mom could always remember her baby!

Mommy and Me Sessions!  This was the first time offering mommy and me sessions and I thought they were so fun and cute.  It is so important for moms to be in pictures with their kids.. how often are we always the ones behind the camera!

My baby turned 2!  This wasn’t a real session.. more like, “hey Jacks, put this shirt on, come on, let’s go outside as the sun is setting..”  I love his eyes here.  His hair needs a cut.. and his face has filled out so much more.. But, I can feel his silliness coming through.  Love you, sweet boy!family photography fuquay varina nc


Coolest dad award.  Seriously.. a motorcycle at a newborn shoot..OK! 🙂  Dude even has his own little newborn leather jacket.. This was another Belly to Baby couple.. they were featured in the last blog.. she was the one who had a maternity session and there was snow on the ground.. not typical in NC.. newborn photography fuquay-varina nc


Look at this little serious face.. what a cutie pie.  This family actually ended up being up the road neighbors of ours and always have great ideas for their sessions.  They have this super cute firetruck that they brought for his newborn and his Christmas pictures.. what a great memory to see how he has grown up using the same prop!

These 2 girls were one of my very.first.newborns… because when you’re starting out, you should totally take on twins…. *sarcasm.. I don’t advise it.*  🙂  They were super adorable though.. slept like champs during that session and really made me fall in love with newborn photography.  Their momma wanted some updated pictures of them, and look how sweet they look! family photography fuquay-varina nc


I feel sorry for these final 2 kiddos.. their moms are teachers.  They are not going to be able to get away with anything.. 🙂

Let me tell you a little story about how my life was different between the first and second kid..

first kid: blogged EVERY.LITTLE.THING.  It is literally his baby book.

second kid: oh gosh..I think he..uh.. yea, I have no clue.. I’m relying on Facebook and TimeHop to tell me when he did stuff.

 

first kid: pictures of him at every stage.. any time he did anything.

second kid: maybe he has a picture… if his brother is in it.

 

It isn’t that I love my second kid any  less.. that is not possible.. my heart grew an extra size to accommodate his sweetness.  But, you go from having a 2-1 ratio to all hands on deck. Things just slip through the cracks.  So, I totally understood this mama’s need for pictures of her cute baby boy (the second kid).  He needed some time to shine alone.. and boy he did.  He was all giggles and smiles.  🙂8 month baby

Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over, I’m ready for some newborn goodness!

WinterNewbornSpecial

If you are expecting in January or February, you can book a newborn session now and save $50 on your photography package! This special will be available until Feb. 1st, so act now!  Due to the time constraints of newborn photography, I only offer a few sessions each month to insure that the week surrounding your due date is available.  I cannot guarantee I can work you and your family in if you book once your little one arrives, so it is best to plan ahead and get on my calendar!  Need more information?  email Amy at info@amyfanslerphotography.com
