Brady | Northfield Newborn Photographer

Brace yourself for some stunning pictures of one of the sweetest babies of the year! This Northfield Newborn Photographer had a hard time sending this sweetheart home because he was so perfect at his session.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer01.jpg

Little momma love for Brady and some sweet family snuggles as a family of 4!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer02.jpg

If you get to cuddle with mom then you have to get to daddy snuggles in next!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer03.jpg

So could this be any sweeter? Miss Morgan is super proud to be a big sister! She rocked the super smiles, the snuggly kisses, the sweet smiles and the sassy smiles all within a few minutes.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer04.jpg

As a Northfield Newborn Photographer I love getting a variety of sibling poses because as a mother I know how difficult getting your kids to cooperate together can be! Naturally Miss Morgan was a superstar and was perfectly sweet and done for the day after her pictures with her baby brother.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer05.jpg

Brady = Blue! I mean seriously look at these rich tones and how perfectly this little doll looks. I think mom and dad should toss all the rest of his clothes and keep him in blue always. Plus the bonus there would be less ruined clothes because blue would hide all the kids stains! Quite the perfect plan!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer06.jpg

Years ago a family brought in fishing set handmade by grandma to their Northfield Newborn Photographer, it was sweet and fun and such a special memory for everyone. Luckily it was this family and they got to bring it back for Brady’s session! Here is Brady rocking the family fishing set just like his big sister did.

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer07.jpg

One of my favorite poses for Brady. He rocked the tummy time pose at my Northfield Newborn Studio and the greens were so stunning and rich. The greens were a perfect accent color to his very blue session!

Northfield_Newborn_Photographer08.jpg

Surprise surprise! Brady’s last set up was some amazing blues! Sweet and sleepy for his lips, fingers and toes close ups. My favorite part of lips close ups are when you can see the nursing blister. It makes me reminisce about our own babies and their little blister on their lips throughout that first chunk of their lives. It’s one of those little things that I will never forget.

Congratulations Wick family on your beautiful blessing and thank you for including me in this special time in your lives!

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.

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

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!

Ava Jean| Lonsdale Newborn Photographer

Nothing makes my heart more happy as a Lonsdale Newborn Photographer than to get to know families during this amazing time in their lives. Bringing home new babies is one of the most amazing blessings my family has ever gone through and is so dear to my heart. 

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer4.jpg

Imagine my excitement when this beautiful family scheduled both their maternity and newborn sessions with me?! Not only did I get to capture Amanda's beauty as a pregnant mother but I get to meet Amanda and Jon's sweet baby girl and spend some more quality time with them! Too much excitement!

The ideal time to start working with your newborn photographer is during the pregnancy prior to the 3rd trimester. This allows the photographer to leave room in their bookings for your little one and to prepare for your session. Which is exactly what Amanda and Jon did!

 

Knowing that Jon and Amanda were expecting a little girl was all too exciting and I may have gone a little overboard on new girl accessories!

 

....Nah! You can never have too many pretty headbands, wraps and bonnets right??? Well maybe don't ask my husband because I feel like his answer would be YES!

 

I personally love the versatility and being able to get creative and put together lots of variety in my clients images. 

 

As we progressed through their sessions this summer we really got to know one another as friends and I anxiously awaited some exciting news. Their sweet girl waited until she was ready and....

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer6 (1).jpg

Miss Ava Jean joined their family on Friday August 18th at 8:51 p.m.

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer9 (3).jpg

She weighed 8 lbs 7 ounces and was 21.25 inches of perfection!

Lonsdale_Newborn_Photographer0 (1).jpg

Her session was just perfect! I know the question you are all wondering and the answer is of course! I always get peed and pooped on! It's part of the job and it's okay! It's a good thing to have newborns frequently mess up the studio. It means that they are getting plenty of nutrition and are hydrated, and that is very important early on when baby and mommy are still getting acquainted to breastfeeding. After a bit of cleaning and nursing she was so good and I ended up using up my entire plan for her session (which never happens)! 

I usually plan extras because every baby is so different and not all poses work for each baby and things get dirty. Nope not today! Just all sorts of beauty with this perfect little doll. 

Congratulations Amanda and Jon, Ava is perfect! I couldn't be more honored to be trusted to preserve the memories of this special time in your lives.

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!

Gorgeous Momma | Northfield Newborn Photographer

As much as I was enjoying my maternity leave I was definitely excited to receive the message asking about my services for a maternity session this winter. This Northfield newborn photographer was super excited about this session for a few reasons. One of the biggest reasons was that Catherine told me she would never forgive herself for not asking me to do her pictures! Talk about flattering me! I was more than excited and so honored to preserve the memories of her 4th pregnancy. 

Catherine_1_Northfield Newborn Photographer

 

I met Catherine when our daughter was in an ECFE class. It was a wonderful ones class where Catherine was attending with her son Shea. We got to know each other while singing songs with our kiddos and discussing the rewards and difficulties of parenting during parent time. This Northfield newborn photographer immediately got along with Catherine very well. She is a fun, kind person with lots of great family ideas. How could we not get along well?! During this class I was expecting our 2nd child and he joined our family during the fall class session. At the end of the session Catherine shared that they too were expecting another member to their family (their 3rd)! Having our kids close really helped form our friendship. Fast forward a few years to now! Let's talk about her amazing session!

Catherine and Steve celebrated their 10 year anniversary this December (Congratulations you guys!!!), had Christmas and were expecting their 4th beautiful baby. What better way to remember these special times than to gift Steve a session of styled maternity images? I loved the idea and was thrilled to be taking these special pictures! 

Catherine3_Northfield Newborn Photographer

 

We planned to have her Northfield maternity photography session just a few short weeks before Catherine was due when our baby girl was just 3 weeks old! It was a bit of a time crunch but their sweet baby girl didn't surprise them by coming early and we got her images done in plenty of time to commemorate their last pregnancy. 

Catherine came to the Northfield photography studio on New Years Day and we got to business! I had her session fully styled after we had her pre-session consultation and I knew what she was looking for out of the session as well as styles and colors she preferred. 

For the in studio portion of her session I used dream lighting (backlighting) to really emphasize her beautiful belly and to create light and airy images that were all about her, and her pregnancy. 

Catherine_2_Northfield Newborn Photographer
Catherine4_Northfield Newborn Photographer

 

Catherine was a true Minne-snow-tan when it came to the outdoor part of the session! To get to the pond we had to hike through the woods to avoid the icy trail (gotta keep the momma's safe)! It was a bit chilly that day and she rocked the outdoor images with not a shiver. She said her years of figure skating helped her prepare and I'm guessing her little built in furnace helped too! 

This Northfield newborn photographer just loves these images. They not only are absolutely stunning and highlight this amazing time in Catherine's life but they also completely show her fun vibrant personality. What do you think?!

How Do They Do That? | Northfield Newborn Photographer

We have all seen them. Those super cute, beyond adorable images of babies doing the seemingly impossible. How are they sitting up all on their own, holding their heads up like a little frog, perched on a shelf like a teddy bear or hanging in the air in the cutest of fashion?! Here is the perfect example with sweet little Jack in my Northfield Newborn Photography studio. 

I'm sure you are wondering how on earth do they do that? How did that photographer make that baby do that? Wow! That must be such a strong baby! That photographer is amazing at posing newborn babies! 

The above statements are all False! This Northfield Newborn Photographer has a few secrets to share with you today. 

The answer is quite simply newborns DO NOT hold their own heads up or sit up on their own (or should never be posed without support)! Newborns like all children are incredibly unpredictable. They may startle, wiggle and squirm at any time. As I work with newborns often and have had four of my own babies I can testify that newborn babies are feisty! Just as you soon as you get a baby exactly in the right position one of their favorite things to do is kick out his/her legs, throw his/her head backward or launch themselves forward. Babies should never be placed anywhere where they aren't supported or secure, it's never worth risking safety to get a picture.

Okay so... babies don't hold their heads up on their own (or shouldn't) it's not safe, and babies can't sit up on their own either... How then? How do photographers create these mysterious images of newborns? I'm sure you are hanging on the edge of your seat with curiosity at this point.

It is actually much more obvious than you may think (if you didn't already know).

Many newborn poses are not what they seem. They are not a newborn baby suspended in the air but a baby sitting safely in an assistants hands. They are not baby holding his head up in his hands but a baby having his hands supported and head supported. Theses images are often an illusion or a compilation of multiple images to create the final product, or the picture we see. This is called a composite. As a Northfield Newborn Photographer I practice using composites with all images where a baby cannot support themselves naturally or safely. 

Composites can be done with multiple images of baby to create a safe environment for him/her or be done to create a unique style as well. Often photographers will take a different backdrops to create a special image with 

If you or a friend come to visit me in my Northfield Newborn Photography studio rest assured that your beautiful baby will be cuddled and kept safe and cozy throughout his/her session.

Here is just a little example showing Jack during his session, he never has a hand taken off of him, he is swaddled very securely and is also posed with support under/around him. All modifications to create the final image were done in Photoshop.
