Leona | Northfield Newborn Photographer

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer8.jpg

You'd never guess how old this little doll is?!!! Most newborn sessions take place when baby is 6 to 14 days old but since miss Leona's big sister had her session at 5 weeks her family wanted to have the girls have their sessions at similar times. During their session I kept the props simple and sweet like these two girls. A couple favorite were my big HUGE winter white flokati from Luneberry and my burlap layer also from them!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer1.jpg

It also worked out great to have Leona's session now since big sister had just turned one and the girls could share their session time! As a Northfield Newborn Photographer I love taking the images that parents are really hoping for in their sessions! After all it's their session time so catering it to their needs is exactly what is right to do! In this case a standard newborn session with some big sister individuals was the right fit. 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer4.jpg

While at the Northfield Photography Studio you have to get some pictures with your kids! It's so hard to get in front of the camera when you are chasing around little ones and it gets harder the more kids you have! Look at momma and her little dolls! So sweet and so real! It's a toss up but I really think the one with Ida poking mom in the face might be my favorite one! It's probably because as a mother I know that my kids are always fiddling with me too.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer2.jpg

As much as I love a good mother/daughter or mother/son image there is always an exceptionally soft spot in my heart for daddy/daughter or daddy/son images. It goes back to the whole parents not getting their pictures often enough but also to the part where dad is the protector and here he is just cuddling his loves. Perfection!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer3.jpg

It's always fun as a Northfield Photographer to capture the little things. The interactions between family members are my favorite! Look at Ida look at her baby sister and her daddy look at her. Sweet and simple but so special!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer5.jpg

Like her big sister Miss Leona LOVED being cozy and super swaddled up! I utilized a bunch of different poses with this wrap since Leona was so happy and warm!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer6.jpg

Lucky for us Leona also didn't mind being a bit less wrapped up so I could capture more of her sweet little fingers and toes! After all babies grow exceptionally quick and it'll be no time before she's chasing after her big sister. Look at what a serious girl Leona already is! It'll be fun to see if she is more like daddy and Ida is more extroverted like momma.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer7.jpg

Here is Ida! So big and rocking the perfect toddler pout. I cannot get over how amazingly smart and verbal she is! Ida talked and talked and talked! Our daughter is a bit older than her and barely has anything to say but Ida was quite the conversationalist. So cool!  

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer9 (1).jpg

Little bit more sisterly love and more of Leona! Sweet girls. I am so happy for you all as you welcome your new baby girl into your family! You are going to have the best of friends right here. Thank you so much for bringing your little dolls to me to preserve your memories. They are so beautiful.

Andrew | Northfield Newborn Photographer

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer4.jpg

Nothing like working with a teensy little baby boy! Mr. Andrew was a such a polite boy for his Northfield MN Newborn Photography session and slept soundly for most of the time.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer2 (1).jpg

Early on into the session I really wanted to do a hanging image with Andrew. He was so small and such a sleepy boy I knew the result would be amazing and here it is! This is a composite of multiple images. All images where a baby is seemingly supporting themselves in an odd way or where a baby would be in any type of compromising position is composited. As a Northfield newborn photographer safety is exceptionally important and always come first in my studio.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer2.jpg

 Mom and dad images are always one of my favorite poses. As a parent I know how little you feel like taking pictures after you have given birth but also how special it is to have images from these early moments with your new baby. 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer3.jpg

This session was extra fun because mom and dad had some extra special things that they were bringing with to have photographed with their new little boy. The first item was a Houston Rockets run. I wasn't quite sure how I wanted to incorporate a rug into an image and then after seeing it I knew I wanted to treat it like a basketball court and somehow get Andrew onto it. I asked my husband about cutting up a basketball to put him into and he suggested deflating it! We sure make a good team. Here are the final images of the first time I put a baby into a basketball. 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer7.jpg

The second thing that mom and dad were bringing was a superhero blanket. This was extra special to them as Andrews whole pregnancy was superhero themed including his shower. This little superhero needed an extra special set up with his cape and blanket. What made it a bit more cute was a pair of my daughters doll glasses that fit perfectly on Andrews little face. I love the result and my daughter was astonished that he was little enough to wear her doll glasses!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer6.jpg

As you can see by this diverser gallery Andrew was quite the little model. He snoozed happily while I fiddled and posed and took tons of beautiful pictures!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer8.jpg

It's crazy to believe but babies are often very settled and comfortable in the bucket pose. The bucket is prepared for their little bodies and they are used to having their hands up by their faces. Getting a baby out of a bucket is a bit more difficult but naturally Andrew for amazing for this Northfield newborn photographer.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer9.jpg

Toward the end of a session I always enjoy doing more "unposed" images and slowly unwrapping babies. It is fun to see how they stretch out and to take a few images that are different than the typical posed newborn set ups.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer0.jpg

Congratulations Streveler family on your new beautiful boy! I couldn't be happier for you and am absolutely honored you chose me to take Andrew's first pictures.

Thomas | Northfield Newborn Photographer

Oh my goodness! Do you see these sweet chubby cheeks?!!!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer7.jpg

Mr. Thomas was one of my oldest newborn clients even though it's really hard to tell!

New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer9.jpg

He was not the standard 6-14 days but a whopping 5 weeks!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer5.jpg

Sometimes with an older baby they don't want to sleep quite as much. However this was not the case for this handsome boy at all.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer6.jpg

As a Northfield newborn photographer I always go into a session with a plan (I have worked with baby's parents to find out colors etc. of their home and preferences). Babies don't necessarily follow my plan but this way we can get the session started right away and then when something throws off the plan I have an alternate route prepared!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer2.jpg

Thomas hung out awake for a short while so I worked during this time to capture his beautiful eyes. His mommy said she was really hoping for some pictures with his eyes open. 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer0.jpg

It can be hard to capture newborn eyes well since they have a tendency to be less focused and moving around quite rapidly, however Thomas was very focused on his Northfield newborn photographer

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer1.jpg

Shortly after that he fell asleep and we dove right into a whole bunch of sleepy perfection! The rest of the session was pretty quiet and Thomas was 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer4.jpg

Congratulations on the arrival of your handsome little man! I absolutely am honored you chose me as your newborn photographer.

Nora | Northfield Newborn Photographer

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer4.jpg

At Miss Nora's newborn session I asked if they would like using a green wreath. Little did I know that not only did they love the colors and style but that momma grew up with dogwood and it was very special to her! As a Northfield newborn photographer I absolutely love making these special connections with clients and this was beyond meant to be!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer.jpg

Miss Nora wasn't as excited about picture day as mom and dad were but she still tolerated me bugging her and we were able to get lots of beautiful sleepy images of this precious girl.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer2.jpg

Some of my favorite images as a MN newborn photographer are the cuddles with mom and dad! There is nothing like a daddy proudly holding his new baby or a mother snuggling this amazing blessing that she grew inside of her!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer3.jpg

I ALWAYS add in momma to daddy's picture and add in daddy to momma's picture. This way you get TWO (or more) family pictures with your sweet blessing in your final gallery. 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer5.jpg

As a Northfield newborn photographer I always try to add extra earthy textures and natural tones to add to images. I love a bit of greenery or other textures!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer6.jpg

This cream sheepskin is a favorite and if you look through the blog I can guarantee you will see it pop up again and again. It is so beautiful, soft and versatile! I would love every color that Luneberry has to offer but turns out I have to take it slow because there are tons of beautiful newborn props out there!

I love to use it in buckets, baskets, trenches on the floor and pretty much everywhere so you can see where it is a favorite. 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer7.jpg

While Nora was awake I took the opportunity to capture a few images with her eyes open and to let her get some wiggles out. Look at that sweet yawn... and boom asleep!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer8.jpg

As you can see Nora wasn't awake for too long but just long enough to see her eyes, take a few images and conk back out for a few more poses! 

Thank you so much for coming to me to preserve Nora's newborn images! It truly means so much to be honored with such an important job and I couldn't love meeting new families more! Congratulations and many blessings!

Adeline | Northfield Newborn Photographer

I have been awaiting the day that I would get to meet Miss Adeline for a long time and I know that mom, dad and big sister could hardly wait for her to join them!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer0.jpg

As a Northfield Newborn Photographer i love getting to be a part of families lives and sharing in their story. 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer1.jpg

This story is especially beautiful as Miss Adeline and her big sister had an extra special journey to get here. Mom and dad have had a hard time conceiving naturally but with the love of God and some help from the medical community they have been blessed with these two beautiful girls. 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer2.jpg

As both a friend and their newborn photographer I knew they were trying again and my family joined in their prayers that Reagan would be a big sister soon. 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer3.jpg

Mid last summer I found out that they were expecting and cried the happiest of tears for this gorgeous family as I knew how long awaited this precious girl was. 

The day of their session both girls were just the sweetest, most polite dolls. I mean you can tell by  the pictures how great they are right?! 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer6.jpg

We not only took images of Adeline, but also of Reagan and a few family images. If you are dressed nicely and visiting your Northfield Newborn Photographer you mine as well get some with everyone too!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer4.jpg

In the past Miss Reagan has been a little bit shy but not today! Nope she was JAZZED! After all she is a big sister, four years old and adorable! It was all silly smiles, giggles and fun as we played around in the studio. She started off by taking some images in her new airplane (courtesy of grandpa Vlasak). This is so very special because almost everyone on mommy's side of the family is involved in air travel!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer5.jpg

Then we added baby sister and worked on getting the group shots before anyone got too hot!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer7.jpg

Once we were done with sibling and family images it was time to focus on this beautiful blessing. She was a tad grumpy so I pulled out all the tricks and got her snug and cozy in a variety of wraps. She LOVED being swaddled up and mom and dad LOVED these images of her just snug as a bug!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer8.jpg

Congratulations you guys, I couldn't be more happy for each of you and your beautiful addition to your family. 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer9.jpg

I am so honored to have taken Adelines first images and love having you not only as clients but friends.

Carrie | MN Maternity Photographer

I have known this beautiful family since before we were married. I had the honor of going to school with Chris and being in the marching band together (yes marching band)! These two lovebirds have been together since forever just like Eric and I.

MN_Maternity_Photographer1.jpg

As a MN maternity photographer I have been waiting for session as I knew they were hoping to add to their family. We have been praying that they would be blessed with another baby and are so happy for them as they prepare for their daugter Adeline to arrive.

MN_Maternity_Photographer0.jpg

We had originally planned to hold their session at a local park but with this unpredictable winter there was not nearly enough snow to have the beautiful scenery I envisioned for this special session.

MN_Maternity_Photographer1 (1).jpg

MN maternity photographers often have apparel planned for their clients and I had special gowns all planned and Carrie put together these adorable outfits to go with either gown so perfectly! These beautiful gowns both came from ChicaBoo and I love their rich colors and flattering fit!

MN_Maternity_Photographer2.jpg

I was hoping for trees dripping with snow and and the ground completely covered with a fluffy layer white.

MN_Maternity_Photographer3.jpg

With the ground being mostly brown and the trees looking blah I reverted to a back up plan.

MN_Maternity_Photographer4.jpg

We set out for Log Cabin Pines, LLC in Elko where there are plenty of evergreens! There was just enough snow to lightly cover the trees and it was a super cute tree farm.

MN_Maternity_Photographer5.jpg

They had sleds for kids to get pulled down to get a tree in and to pull a tree back in and provided the saws for you to cut your own tree. If you are looking for a Christmas tree next year go check it out!

MN_Maternity_Photographer6.jpg

We took family images first and then let Miss Reagan take a break so we could take a few of mom and dad and then some of mamma and her adorable bump!

MN_Maternity_Photographer7.jpg

As a MN maternity photographer I wanted to take a million more pictures of this gorgeous momma but it was super cold and everyone needed to go warm up!

MN_Maternity_Photographer8.jpg

Plus I had so many gorgeous images already! ...it's just easy to get carried away when you are photographing such beautiful people.

MN_Maternity_Photographer9.jpg

Thank you for the honor of choosing me to preserve this special time in your lives!

Emmett | New Prague Newborn Photographer

Meet Emmett! He was a bit of sassy little man at first and just wanted to hang out with us all awake.

New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer4 (1).jpg

It makes complete sense since as a New Prague newborn photographer my studio has all sorts of different things to absorb. There are lots of different lights and colors and sounds!

New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer3 (1).jpg

Most babies find it to be really peaceful and ideal for sleeping but for an inquisitive little man like Emmett, it took a few minutes to learn about what was going on.

New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer0.jpg

 

To keep babies cozy warm and relaxed my New Prague Newborn studio has soothing sounds and is heated to the perfect temperature for a newborn baby.

I love this teddy bear style on the back because its the perfect time to get some close up images of these sweet features! 

Look at Emmett's sweet little lips and nose and toes! 

New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer2 (2).jpg

After his pictures with mom and dad I swaddled this handsome man up to help him conk out. As you can see he wasn't quite ready to sleep. It didn't take too long though and this handsome little man was sleeping.

New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer1 (2).jpg

Well mostly sleeping... a bit of peeking too...

New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer5 (1).jpg

When I was styling Emmett's session I picked more neutral tones to not only coordinate well with each other but also to coordinate with Emmett's home.

New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer1 (1).jpg
New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer6 (1).jpg

As a New Prague Newborn Photographer I always learn about my clients so that the images I provide to them they will not only love but fit well in their home.

New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer7.jpg

Towards the end of the session I really enjoy doing this pose "egg pose" and letting babies stretch out at relax so they are posed more naturally.  

New_Prague_Newborn_Photographer2 (1).jpg

Emmett didn't want to stretch! It was so cute as I unwrapped him to stretch out he just curled into his wrap and let one leg relax out. 

It was such an honor to take your handsome little mans first images. Thank you for including me in this exciting time in your lives!

Hayden | Northfield Newborn Photographer

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer5.jpg

Meet Hayden. He was super sassy during his session and decided awake was the way to go.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer1.jpg

As a Northfield Newborn Photographer I like to give jazzed up babies some time to relax. Sometimes they need a bit more time to kick around, look at what is going around and listen to the different sounds of the studio.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer0.jpg
Northfield_Newborn_Photographer8.jpg

During this awake time I like to talk to babies and work on taking a few images of them awake. As much as Northfield newborn photographers typical job is to capture sleepy images it is nice to see a few awake images too. If they are happy, of course!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer3.jpg

The studio is filled with the sound of white noise (to mimic inside mamma) and sometimes it can take a minute for little ones to adjust to the new sounds as they have finally started to get used to the quiet of the world. I know that sounds crazy but it was noisy inside his mamma.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer4.jpg

Hayden was definitely the exception and spent a good amount of time hanging out happy and kicking around.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer7.jpg

Part of my job as a Northfield newborn photographer is to roll with each babies personality and create beautiful images regardless of how baby is feeling that day. So Hayden's family got more awake images and they were still perfectly sweet and showed his sassy personality.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer2.jpg

Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy and thank you so much for including me in this special time in your lives!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer6.jpg
Northfield_Newborn_Photographer9.jpg

Many blessings to you all.

Finley | Lonsdale Newborn Photographer

This little peanut was quite the surprise to her mom and dad as she decided to join their family 8 weeks early!

Lonsdale Newborn Photographer

 

 

After talking with her parents I was so excited to meet this sweet girl!

 

We got along so well and had so many things in common. I knew we would hit it off and get to be great friends!

 

It was hard because this Lonsdale Newborn Photographer had to wait until Finley got to go home. Although I cannot imagine how hard the wait was for mom and dad as they waited for their sweet baby girl to come home with them.

 

Finley just had to get better at eating and put on some weight, which makes sense since she was born at a teensy 4 lbs 7 oz.

 

When Finley was discharged we scheduled her session right away as she was already 6 weeks old which for a newborn session is a bit later than I typically aim for.

 

As a trained newborn photographer I wasn't worried as I have plenty of tricks up my sleeve to help babies be extra sleepy and happy!

 

The day of her session Finley was such a sweet and sassy girl. She fell asleep right away and was super comfortable in all of her poses. Every time I moved her she would grump at me with loud shrieks and once I had her in position she would go back into a peaceful sleep. Every. Single. Time.

It was hilarious! You just have to love a baby with a nice strong personality!

Lonsdale Newborn Photographer

Mom and Dad were super relaxed and had a few suggestions for the session but all in all let me do my thing. I love this because sessions like this are where I can get creative and do what goes well together and with how baby is comfortable.

Lonsdale Newborn Photographer

 

As a newborn photographer when you find out Dad is a drummer you definitely ask if they are going to bring a drum.

 

According to Mom they were bringing two “gun metal bedazzled” drums!

 

That's quite the specific description and it was spot on!

 

They brought a tom and a snare and they were so much fun to incorporate into her session.

 

Thank you for including me in this special time in your beautiful baby girls life!

Lincoln | Lonsdale Newborn Photographer

Lonsdale is such a small town so you always know when new families move in. This summer we had the pleasure of gaining some new neighbors moving in. We knew the old homeowners and saw a young family moving in and I knew I needed to pop over and say hello.

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer0.jpg

What a fun surprise to have a new young family in the neighborhood! Even better they have two little boys that are the same ages as our two boys. We had a great conversation where we discussed our love of geeky board games like Carcassone, Small World, Pandemic and Settlers of Catan. Anyone else a geeky board game lover? I love to embrace the geeky things that I enjoy (ie met my husband in marching band)!

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer1.jpg
Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer2.jpg

As a Lonsdale newborn photographer I always get excited when families are expecting new addition to their family. Babies are such blessings and as I have mentioned ten million times over I LOVE big families. Something about the dynamic between siblings I have always enjoyed. Kids in big families have to share, cooperate and also learn independence (it's pure survival).

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer4.jpg

These guys were expecting their 3rd BOY! So much fun and so much energy!

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer3.jpg

Lincoln was a sneaky little boy and decided to come before his scheduled induction! It was a tough day for mom and dad who recently moved from out of state.

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer6.jpg
Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer8.jpg
Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer7.jpg

 

 

I honestly told them to give a call if they needed a last minute sitter because we live so closely to one another.

 

They had to pack up the boys and RUN to Burnsville!

 

 

 

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer5.jpg

Luckily the nursing staff helped them out as they welcomed their newest handsome little man into their family. As a newborn photographer (and an experienced mother) I know how often this can happen and am just glad that they made it in time and didn't have to deliver their baby in the car!

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer9.jpg

Thank you for including me in this special time in your handsome baby boys life!

Jax | Northfield Newborn Photographer

As a Northfield Newborn Photographer I have heard so many different birth stories and learned so much about deliveries. I was so excited to hear Mr. Jax's birth story because it wasn't your typical story, he was born at home!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer0.jpg

I love hearing alternate birth stories because every mother's story is different and every baby comes into the world in their own special way. After having 4 children I have experienced this firsthand.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer1.jpg

Jax was born at his home after mom had delivered her other babies at the hospital. As a Northfield Newborn Photographer I am hearing more and more natural birth stories and I really think they are beautiful. Whether it be a home delivery, a water birth (or both!), birthing at a center or a hospital your story is beautiful.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer2.jpg

Each family that is expecting should talk to their doctor and with one another to find the right fit for them. That's one of the first steps of being a parent, making a decision that is yours and your partners.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer3.jpg

This handsome man was born in the water in a loft area in their home. In the night big sister woke up and got to experience her baby brothers birth. How beautiful is that?!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer4.jpg

These kiddos are so excited to have a new baby brother and he is going to be so very blessed to have these older siblings to play with and learn from.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer5.jpg

I'm sure mamma is loving all the help from big sister and big brother as they are old enough to not only be great helpers but also to be able to go out and play and give her some time with baby Jax.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer6.jpg

Congratulations on your new little boy, he is so beautiful and I am truly honored that you chose me as your Northfield Newborn Photographer.

Rhyan |Lonsdale Newborn Photographer

As a Lonsdale newborn photographer I love when clients book prior to their delivery! Not only can I guarantee my availability for their session but it also gives me more time to get to know them and prepare for them.

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer

Dana booked prior to the arrival of baby Rhyan so I knew that she would be coming in soon. Dana serves in the US Army and I was so excited that she would be bringing in her fatigues to do a special set up with her daughter. What a special image for their family!

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer

Rhyan was one of the best behaved babies I have ever had in my Lonsdale newborn photography studio. Not only did she keep it clean (which doesn't happen in newborn photography) but she also didn't stop to eat! Most newborns, especially breastfed newborns stop to nurse a minimum of one time during their session, sometimes more! Not Rhyan, she was a little angel and slept perfectly while I worked on documenting how perfectly tiny and sweet she is!

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer

Prior to her session I wanted to add some new earthy headbands to my collection for her to use and got crafty. Often photographers try to create some of their own props as it can save money and also you can create props that match your set ups more closely. As a Lonsdale Newborn Photographer  I often make props to accompany some of the props I have gotten from my favorite vendors. 

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer

This beautiful green headband is one of the most fun bands I have made in some time! I love how sweet and simple it looks on Rhyan!

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer

I also made Rhyan's lace wrap in this perfect tummy time pose and also her white bow headband in the next image.

Since I knew that Rhyan was coming in soon and knew the colors that appealed to her mom and dad I knew exactly how to style her session so that her images would look great in their home and look beautiful printed together.

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer

I truly enjoyed getting to know Rhyan and her family throughout their photography session and gallery premiere appointment. They were so kind to me and even bought me a gift. It was the most thoughtful gift I had gotten in a long time and meant so much. 

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer

Thank you so much for including me in this special time in your lives. I am so blessed to be able to spend all this time with beautiful babies and their families and couldn't be happier. Congratulations on your baby girl and thank you for the honor of photographing her.

Tristan | Northfield Newborn Photographer

Oh man do you see this cute little man? Babies with a little bit of rolls and squish are the best! Tristan was born at a whopping 11 lbs and his round cheeks are just the sweetest!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer0.jpg

Bigger babies photograph so well because they are more full and look comfy and cozy in their images. Sometimes littler ones need more props and wraps to help them look comfy whereas Tristan was all set!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer.jpg

You could tell he was a big boy at birth because Tristan was also super strong. As a Northfield newborn photographer I work with a lot of babies and I have to say this little man is the strongest baby I have ever had in the studio (for a newborn session). 

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer4.jpg

While he was still awake there wasn't much convincing him to pose. I had to work my Northfield newborn photographer skills to get him nice and sleepy so he would pose nicely. Otherwise he was too busy trying to sit up! When you put him on his tummy for the tummy time pose he flat out sat up.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer2 (1).jpg

Once he fell asleep he looked so perfectly cozy and happy!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer.jpg

Tristan's session was extra special because I have known his mommy for a really long time. I love working with people I know because their sessions are even more special to me. In this case I went to high school with Tristan's momma and we were good friends. I was so excited for her to have a sweet baby brother for Trenton!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer.jpg

Congratulations Loftus family on your new beautiful boy! Life with two boys is quite the adventure and these little guys are so blessed to have one another!
