Here she is… our beautiful daughter! Little Claire Amelia was born on January 14th and just a week later (on her due date), we got in front of the camera with my talented friend Laura Foote for our in-home newborn session. My goal for the session was “relaxed and cozy” and I think Laura captured that perfectly. It was such a treat to be on the other side of the camera during a newborn session with MY family! My handsome husband, our big boy toddler and our brand new baby girl. It was such a wonderful morning (once James decided to cooperate… our session started with tears and Laura used her magic to bring out his sweetest smiles) and I’m so thankful to have these images as a keepsake of our little girl as a newborn. Thank you so so much for these images, Laura! You are the best!!
SO excited to share this sweet family on the blog today! Jayme is one of my dearest mama friends and her daughter is Jamesy’s best friend. Our two little toddlers adore each other and they play so well together! I loved photographing Jayme, her sweet husband, and their little lady a few months ago at Philippe Park in Safety Harbor. We got so many smiles and adorable photos!
If you’re a toddler or preschool parent, you need to check out Jayme on her blog and instagram @teachtalkinspire. She shares so many helpful and easy tools and resources to incorporate play into our learning. You’ll love following her!
Here is the Brady family! Maria and I met in the Westchase Mom’s club and I just adore her. She is full of energy and positivity. I always feel encouraged, as a mom and woman, after spending time with her. Maria and her husband are parents to three adorable little ladies. I photographed their family a few months ago at Philippe Park in Safety Harbor. We had so much fun together! I loved their coordinating pink outfits.
Congratulations to Ashley and Matt on the arrival of their precious little boy! I had the opportunity to photograph their sweet family back in December at one of my favorite spots, Philippe Park in Safety Harbor. The big, sprawling trees are my favorite! Ashley and Matt are parents to their adorable son Hunter and they just recently welcomed their second son, Nolan. So thrilled for them!! I’m so excited to share their maternity photos. It was such a fun session!
We welcomed our precious daughter into the world on January 14th via a repeat c-section. I was exactly 39 weeks pregnant. It was such a beautiful day and as a way to remember all the details of Claire’s birthday, I’m going to share her birth story here. Just like I did for James when he was born in June 2017. I have shared James’ frank breech c-section birth story many times over the past two years and have been told by many nervous, anxious mamas that it was encouraging to learn more about what to expect with a c-section birth. Hopefully Claire’s birth story will also encourage and inform more parents as they prepare to welcome their babies.
