Newborn ~ Sadie

Newborn Photography

I can’t believe that a little over a week ago, I photographed two newborns. It feels amazing to have finally stepped out of my comfort zone. When they say every baby is different when it comes to photographing. . .they aren’t kidding. My first newborn was 7 days old and awake the whole time, but completely content. Sadie, on the other hand, was 15 days old and gave me a run for my money 🙂 She wanted to be fed every two hours and never did fall into a deep sleep. Even through all that, the parents were amazing and I was able to capture some beautiful images.



Calmbox Review

The Calmbox

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I love my PopSugar subscription box. I was beyond excited when I saw a contest come across my Instagram feed to be one of the first 10 people to receive the first ever Calmbox. I entered almost every way possible in hopes to be one of those lucky 10.


A & E Photo Shoot ~ Fears Conquered

A&E Photo Shoot

Last week, I did something I never thought I’d do – I photographed my first newborn baby, which was amazing, but I also did the shoot in our new house. I’ve always been an outdoor, natural light photographer as I find the light much easier to work with, and locations and backdrops are endless. I was approached by two clients about doing newborn sessions and at first I wanted to tell them no. I was too scared and have a terrible time stepping out of my comfort zone. Heaven forbid I actually do something that could be AMAZING, right?! I honestly went back and forth for days after committing to both of them, about backing out. What if the baby is fussy and I don’t capture any images I like? What if nothing turns out? What if this and what if that? It was exhausting. I finally had enough and told that voice in my head to be quiet, that I was going to go through with it and, if anything, it was going to be a great learning experience.


May Review and June Goals

We’ve been in our house for over a month now and fall in love with it more and more every day. We’ve been unpacking, working in the yard, and getting our lives organized. I had my first photo shoot of the year this past month which is always exciting. We went camping over Memorial Day and the weather was amazing. All-in-all it was a great month!
