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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

 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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
