Baby C | Smithfield, NC Newborn Photographer

Last week my best teacher friend had her very first baby.  She came a little bit earlier than expected, but is absolutely perfect!  I took some photos at the hospital after she arrived, but today I got a chance to do a real newborn shoot at her house.  She was just the best little model ever.  I haven't photographed a small, sleepy newborn in so long that I forgot how easy it is to get all the shots when they are completely zonked out.  She made my job totally easy today, and in return I will be spoiling her forever!  Here's a sneak peek at baby C's newborn shoot...
 She was SUCH a good little model!
 We even got some photos with daddy's Air Force uniforms :)

Baby B | Clayton, NC Newborn Photographer

I had the opportunity to photograph a brand new little bundle this weekend!  She was one of the most alert newborns I've ever photographed.  She was so curious to see what I was doing, and even made eye contact with the camera a few times!  We fought hard to get her to sleep at the end of the shoot and succeeded just in time.  Her sweet baby cheeks are to die for, so here's just a tiny peek into her newborn shoot!
That's all for now!

A Little Self Promotion

I'm going to quote the amazing Ashlee Gadd on the subject of self promotion:

"The most awkward part about working for yourself is self promotion.
Hey! Look at me! I wrote a blog post! Hey! Look at me! I’m on Huffpo! Hey! Look at me! I took some pretty pictures! See what I mean?  Awkward as it may be, my current livelihood depends on people caring about what I create.  So hey! Look at me!"

 Now that I got that out of the way... Hey! Here are some opportunities for you to snag a photo session or order original artwork and illustrations...
I am currently booking late March newborn sessions only [baby it's cold outside], and spring shoots.  I'm not booking any sessions in June or July aside from my Baby's First Year clients.  That leaves April and May open for sessions...and that's it!  So don't wait too long to shoot me that email-

I also have an Etsy shop!  If you are interested in ordering a custom baby announcement, custom family portrait, or an original painting head on over-
