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!

Central MA Newborn Photographer - Dandelion Wild Photography - Massachusetts Family Photographer - Newborn Session - Brothers

Two toddlers and a newborn. Not an easy feat. Two active, proud, big brothers and their brand new baby brother….triple the trouble! It was hard to wrangle those boys down. But we managed to do it for literally .3 seconds. Mom loved this image of her three little boys. Oh goodness these three are just the perfect little trifecta of fun. Mom runs in three different directions and she does it so gracefully. The most patient momma bear I’ve ever met in my life. Her voice even lulls me to sleep when she calms the brewing storms.

Mum and Dad didn’t find out what they were having for all three of her children. To have three boys is such a blessing. There’s just something about brotherhood that I’ve never understood and never will. It’s a bond like no other and these three are lucky to have that in each other. I envision loves of memories to be made. Holidays will surely be fun, year after year, generation after generation.

Mom might have her fair share of heart attacks and episodes of total heart failure over the next few decades, but I’m sure it’ll all be totally worth it. Especially when you have three sets of beautiful little eyes looking up at you. When you’re the only woman in their eyes. The only one who kisses booboos just right. The one to tuck them in at night and give out endless numbers of hugs and kisses.

Such lucky brothers. Such lucky parents.

Such a lucky photographer to get to capture the beginning of the brothers three!

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.

The most beautiful newborn baby girl came into my studio. She was so sweet and flew right through her session. She snacked while mom, dad, and I talked. I got to get in lots of little newborn snuggles and admire all her perfect little features. Thankfully she signed up for my baby plan and I get to see this little sugar grow up over the next year.

Welcome to the world, Olivia. Happy Birthday!

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

M Family Maternity

I met up with this gorgeous family and captured Rosie's maternity photos.  At the time these were taken they were impatiently waiting to find out the gender of their baby! I love surprise genders!  I waited to find out with both of our girls and I swear the wait is worth it!

Rosie has been my best friend since we graduated high school.  Not long... ;)...but she's a better friend to me than most. Here she is with her pup and husband, Tim.  I could not have picked a better man for her.  He makes her the happiest.  Something I had always hoped for for her.

This spot is gorgeous.  I used to spend a lot of time hiking and exploring the woods.  I remember discovering this little spot back in high school.  Now every time I'm in this area, I visit it.  It's very peaceful and serene, as you can see. 

Rosie's husband and I share a favorite animal.  We both LOVE moose.  We were both hoping one would stumble out of the woods for a drink and photo bomb them, but unfortunately, that didn't happen. Maybe next time.

Ugh I can't get over all this gorgeousness.  These two were very sweet together.  Just look at them. They are absolutely madly in love.

Their little babe arrived on June 29 and they are the parents of a beautiful baby boy.  I can't wait to meet the little man.  <3

Girls Day! <3

It was a beautiful day and I was lucky enough to have some friends over! They brought their girls and I had my girls...making it a grand total of 7 girls!

My poor husband was hardly seen as he had hid all day.  I can't blame him. ;)

It was so nice spending the day with these ladies.  Before they left I had to snap a few. <3 I wish they'd stop growing though...I remember when they were born.  Kenz was our miracle girl who couldn't wait to take over our hearts and came early weighing in at just over a pound at 1lb 2oz.  Now she's running, jumping, climbing, and rolling around like she owns this world. (I wouldn't be surprised if she actually did one day...)  While Hannah was born the day after my Audrey was born.  Her mom and I talked every day as we waited impatiently to meet them.  We met as bridesmaids in a wedding.  We had to try on dresses and we both had JUST found out we were pregnant.  We were trying to figure out what sizes to get not knowing how big we would be 9 months later.  I was due almost two weeks after her but I ended up having Audrey on Hannah's actual due date.  I'm so grateful to have had these girls during that time in my life.

Hannah wasn't having her pictures, but we did manage to get one that has been a fan favorite over on our Facebook page.  I decided to mix it up a bit and convert it to B&W.  I can't decide which one I like more now... <3

Not only was the weather beautiful...but so was my company.  I'm so happy they made the trip out.  It was a last minute plan...the best kind! <3
