Brand New...

I had the extreme pleasure of photographing this precious newborn recently. Every once in a while, I have a chance to simply enjoy everything about my work. It was wonderful to spend time with this family and share in the joy they felt over this addition to their family. It didn't take long before I was captivated as well.

Due to the remodeling of my studio space, I stretched outside of my comfort zone quite a bit. Most of the session was indoors and with low lighting. Of course, challenges are just food for creative minds and it was a lot of fun to experiment. Mom came ready with some wonderful ideas and was so patient with my girls fascination with the baby. The mini-diva duo played the role of assistant photographers. I would not recommend having a five-year old rearrange your lighting as you are shooting!

Overall, this session has been a bright spot in my October. I have loved every step of this process and have been so encouraged by this family. I am looking forward to watching as this beautiful little girl grows.


  1. You are awesome, Amy. The session was a visit in hospitality from the moment we pulled up until we drove away. We couldn't have asked for more and I am still just dazed by your creativity.
    You came up with the dearest ideas like they were candy falling from the sky or something. Smiles. Seriously --- we LOVED the whole experience and LOVED you and the girls. That day is a memory I hope to always hold in my heart. . .

  2. You did an AWESOME job, Amy! I could not have asked for better photos. I have told you many, many times you have such a GREAT talent. We enjoyed our day with you SO much! Like Sandy, I will hold that day dear! The girls were awesome little helpers. You will have to put them on payroll ;) Emily would have a blast with those two precious fairies :)


I would love to hear from you...
