I LOVE my Newborn Lifestyle sessions, there is just something that is magical coming into a family’s world with the miracle of a new life in their midst. And if you know me personally, I love simple, and uncomplicated, and this personality trait translates over into my photography. My only props for newborn sessions are a few blankets and wraps, a basket or two, and natural light. Simple and uncomplicated. That speaks to my heart.
I feel this simplicity really helps to bring out these sweet details and softness of a newborn. I am a sucker for those impossibly posed adorable newborns that look like little angles, I think they are so cute, however I want to capture a an image the evokes a strong emotional response…to remember their perfect little details and remember the preciousness of watching them sleep, holding them, feeding them, the cuddles, the softness and the amazement that are little new babies and the love that you never knew you were capable of.
As soon as August 1st hits it seems these magical days of summer are fleeting. It puts my heart in an odd place, I adore summer months, but yet look forward to the newness of fall, of new beginnings, and being forced into a new time of quietness and routine that fall and winter can bring.
But I felt a pull to try to capture these fleeting moments by offering End of Summer Sunset Mini Sessions. I scouted out this new beautiful location in Bloomington, with soft prairie grasses and flowers combined with my worn vintage quilt, just the perfect backdrop; a place to stop and ponder the beauty and warmth that is summer, before school and homework and new schedules filled with sports and dance, and music lessons and recitals….
Details and Dates:
I have 3 evening dates available: Saturday Aug. 18th, Monday Aug. 20th, and Friday Aug. 24th, with sessions starting at 6:45.
Mini Sessions are perfect for families, or just the kids, you decide. I often hear moms say “I just need a few nice pictures of the family and kids”, and this type of session is perfect. These sessions are short and simple, just 25 minutes long, and you will receive 5 to 7 fully edited digital images with a print release, all for $150. I will aim to capture one or two posed family images with all those lovely smiles, single images of each child, and a few “unposed” emotive images capturing the connection and personality of your family. Session spaces will be limited, with only 3 time slots for each of the dates.
