Clarion Pennsylvania Newborn Photography

And baby makes 4! | Clarion, Pennsylvania lifestyle newborn photography

I am so happy to share this session tonight.  I am incredibly honored when family becomes a repeat client and I get to capture their growing family.   I think watching families grown over the years is absolutely my favorite part of my job!

I have worked with this great family a few times now capturing their first munchkin's newborn portraits, first year portraits and now portraits for the newest addition to their family - Miss Karly!

Thank you so much Lynnsey and Josh.  It is so nice to see you again and I really appreciate you choosing me for your newborn and family photographer!

Onto the photos!

Happy Birthday Miss Molly! | Clarion, Pennsylvania Child Photography

This spring I had the privilege to spend a morning with this little munchkin and her family.  I met this one about a year ago when I took her newborn portraits....and, in the blink of an eye, she is suddenly ONE.  

This session actually took place ON her first birthday so it was extra special.  I just love first year portraits.  The little ones are usually not too mobile so they don't run away from you, and usually you can coax some adorable expressions with just a bit of goofiness.  

Miss Molly was a little wary of me at first, but she was sweet and (mostly) happy and eventually warmed up a bit especially when she heard there was CAKE TO BE HAD!  Yes, we ended the session with a cake smash with the most beautiful smash cake and props provided by mom.

Oh - and I should add, big news in this family....Miss Molly is going to be joined by a little brother or sister by the end of the year!!  So that is VERY exciting indeed!

Thank you all so much for choosing me again for your family portraits!!!!  

Now onto the photos!

Sweet Quinn! | Newborn lifestyle photographer

I am so excited to share this session!  I met Lauren and Ben a couple years ago when they hired me as their engagement and wedding photographer.  They were definitely one of my favorite wedding clients - so much fun and so down-to-earth.  I had such a great time working with them!

When they contacted me and told me they were expecting their first child and would I be available to do newborn portraits?  Well - HECK YEAH!

I have refined my newborn sessions over the years to make them simpler and less stressful for everyone.  I try to keep them to about an hour - to help out tired parents.  I also focus more on a lifestyle like images.  I don't do much posing and try to incorporate all the uniqueness of a newborn.  

As an aside....my newborn sessions all also include the ability to download all the final images from an online gallery where you can print what you want - when you want.  I know that trying to decide which images you want, and what sizes you want, can be a bit overwhelming at this time.  So I find parents appreciate the simplicity and flexibility of an all-inclusive session.  

Oh, and I should mention...another BIG advantage of a simpler and shorter newborn session?  They are definitely a little more economical than the traditional session fee plus prints/files/products!  Win win win!

But lets get onto the Quinn's session!  And thank you so much Lauren and Ben!!  It was such an honor to work with you again and meet your sweet Quinn!
