Baby's First Year and Beyond

Bennett – A Simple Studio Newborn Session



Valentine’s Day is nearly here, and I can’t wait! While we may not be able to celebrate with the traditional fun, I’m ready for anything that brings about joy.

Mid-winter season seems like the perfect time to share a simple and understated session. I had the pleasure of photographing newborn studio imagery for new parents Kellie and Kenny, who found me via Yelp. Kenny is a chef – how fun is that! Kellie and Kenny love cooking together and trying out new restaurants. I’m sure Bennett is going to have an amazing and adventurous palate!

I’m excited to share this session. Take a look at some of my favorite images below!

One of the best things about this growing family is Kellie and Kenny’s love for travel. They even traveled to Bali and Singapore early in Kellie’s pregnancy. Kellie told me they’d be decorating the nursery with items from their travels. As such, we kept it simple for this session with their new son, with only minimal props. A neutral palette allowed the studio newborn session to purely showcase the love these new parents have for each other and baby Bennett. Kenny was absolutely smitten with his baby boy, and so attentive to both Bennett and Kellie! It was positively the best. I know this family will only grow closer as Bennett grows up.

This stage with a newborn is all about – well – new everything, and a sense of wonder at everything your baby does. Everything is exciting. As a mother to slightly older children now, it’s so fun for me to watch this in my clients. Like being a new parent all over again. I know maybe that sounds cliché, but it’s so true, isn’t it?! The feeling these images give parents of all ages.

I’d love to work with you on creating these deep emotions and fabulous memories with your growing family.
