Newborn Session - Central MA Newborn Photographer - Newbory Baby Girl - Dandelion Wild Photography

This little princess came in and totally rocked her session. She was super sleepy and we were able to get everything Mom and Dad requested and then some. Her little Minnie outfit didn’t quite fit, but hopefully next time when I see them it will!

I had just seen Mom and Dad a few weeks prior to their baby being born for their maternity session. You can take a peek at that by scrolling down below. They were so sweet and the anticipation of meeting this sweet girl was growing strong at the time. Moms and Dads to be are always so full of hope and wonder. It’s such an amazing time because you just want to meet your little babe. Lay eyes on that precious little face. And get to know the being you created.

Now that she’s here, it’s almost like she’s always been here. Mum and Dad were already pros and as you can see, baby Quinn is quite happy with life earthside.

Everything about Quinn was so teeny tiny and perfect. She loved to be rocked and constantly moving. When she slept, she slept. When she was awake, she was wide awake.

I can’t wait to see this little babe again! Quinn is on her way towards completing our Baby Plan. Get ready for lots of cuteness over the next year!

Timothy - Newborn Session - Central MA Newborn Photographer - Massachusetts Newborn Photographer - Dandelion Wild Photography

Baby Timothy is one of the cutest little strawberry blonds to ever grace my studio. He didn’t have much competition but still. He’s my first little almost full blown redhead and that was pretty exciting because if you know me, you know how much I love my red heads. If you have read hair, you bet your butt I’m going to touch it. And I don’t even care if you get mad or think it’s weird because it’s totally worth it. Check out mom’s gorgeous locks. Yep. Jealous!!!! And I may have pretended it was out of place so I could just give it a little toss one more time. It’s gorg. Ugh. In my next life I’m coming back as a redhead. If there is a God or God’s I hope you hear this request. I’ve been pretty darn good in this life…so I can’t see why not.

Now I didn’t hit the genetic jackpot as I’m one of those blondies turned brunette now I pay a bunch of money to make it blond again but I don’t maintain it so I just say it’s balayage and then I’m trendy and not just cheap or lazy. :)

I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting lately, and I’m so done with social media. I’m like…done done. It’s way too much to maintain and like…no one sees my posts. I’m so much more motivated writing a little blip about your sweet family on my website and then you can share it on social media if you so choose. I’m just not into it anymore. I’m not sure what happened. But I have no interest. I think it was a combination of wasting time and being annoyed and worried all the time because I saw and knew too much. Now that I’m ignorant and have a ton more time…life is a lot less stressful. I think what I’m going to do is just run my website. I don’t even care if I get like 10 clients a year. I’d be happy if I just had one of you to come see me once in awhile to update your family photo. I love this job. And I love the simple life. I want both. And I can have both if I do it right! :)

When you receive your gallery you will also receive a link to your blog post. Share if you will! I’d love it. It won’t be like this blog post. It will be all about your session and how perfect you all are. Because you are. Exactly the way you are. And so many things make you special and I’ll highlight those things. And all your Facebook friends will agree and hopefully love your images as much as we do and inquire. :)

If not, oh well. I tried. You tried. And that’s all I ask.

In the mean time…Lets just all oooo and ahhhh over how adorable this brand new family of three is.

Central Massachusetts Newborn Photographer - Newborn Girl - Harper

This gorgeous family came in to see me with their brand new baby girl to show off.  She was a little older than most newborns I photograph but she did so well throughout her session.  My favorite part of newborn sessions with first time parents is talking about their baby.  They are literally coming in to see me one week or maybe two or even three weeks into being parents, and they talk as though they're experts.  And they really already are!

Every baby is so very different and I feel like there is no advice I can give to new parents, because each baby is so unique.  They are the experts on their child.  They know the hungry cry.  They know she likes to be swaddled with one arm out.  They know she prefers her side to her back, etc. 

Harper has the cutest face when she's complaining...lol <3

First time parents are so beautiful. They never take their eyes off their baby.  They are so careful and just absolutely head over heals in love with this little tiny human they made so beautifully. Babies are such a miracle and to be blessed with one in any way is such a gift.

My best friend just had a baby about a month ago.  That feeling never gets old.  Watching someone you love become a mother or a father. <3 You see this new light in their eye as they gaze upon their littlest love.

I get to witness this when I photograph these brand new babes. It's such a phenomenal feeling to witness love at it's finest and most beautiful point in life.

Oh sweet little Addy! I had a blast with this peanut! She slept like a champ so I was able to do so many poses and setups! <3 I just had to share a few more of her. She's just perfect right down to her little baby toesies! <3

She was the most perfect little girl.  She slept right on through her session and barely made a peep.  She had a few snacks in between to refuel and then she was out like a light again.

This family was so sweet! And mom is absolutely gorgeous! They were both naturals when it came to caring for their little human being.

Like they've had her for years. <3

11 day old Luca came to see us on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  He came in, woke up, had a snack, and then decided he didn't want to go back to sleep just yet. We hung out for a bit, everyone got to know each other as we oo-ed and aw-ed over this sweet baby boy!

He was a feisty one, that's for sure.  But once mom lulled her boy back to sleep...we captured some truly beautiful images.

One of my favorite props was build by my Dad.  He is quite the carpenter.  He's a busy guy so the fact that he took the time out of his day to make this for me, really meant a lot.  I love the neutral tones and the natural texture of the white birch.  Natural and neutral has always been a favorite of mine.

I could have snuggled the afternoon away with this sweet babe.

Thank you for spending your afternoon with me G family. <3

Enjoy every fleeting moment.
