The newborn and the 1 year old

I was so excited and a little nervous to do this newborn shoot. I was nervous because I had all these ideas in my head and I was afraid none of them would translate. This little guy was the perfect first newborn for me because he was very sleepy still at 11 days old and just a little peach. He would give a tiny little squawk when I would reposition him and then back to sleep he went.  He was also a good challenge because he was a bit jaundice so trying to get even skin tones during editing was tricky.  Overall I’m happy with them though and am looking forward to being able to do this again.

This is kind of a popular pose for newborns right now and I just wanted to see if I could get it.  Matt wasn’t crazy about it and I’m sure not everyone will love it but I think it’s cute. 😉

And now the big sister.  She is just the cutest little thing!  Her big blue eyes are amazing!  I love this shot below.  This was right at the beginning when she was trying to figure me out.

She found some books to keep her busy while I was snapping her baby.

I told her to jump on the bed hoping I could get some real smiles and she promptly fell off the bed.  Poor thing!  Good thing it was a toddler bed!

She was full of kisses for her new baby.  🙂

Loved capturing these two!  Thanks for coming down!

  1. This is some really great stuff for the two most challenging ages you can get. The one you got of the two of them together is precious!

  2. I'm very impressed by your talent, Emily! These subjects are adorable, and I am proud to claim them as my great-niece and great-nephew! 😉


  3. Little cuties! I really love the baby in the knit hat with his hand on his face (black and white). For some reason I couldn't stop staring at that one, it's really neat.

  4. They turned out wonderful! Can't remember my favorites, but there were a few!

  5. These are beautiful! As well as the subjects. That little lady is just darling — love the bow on top of her head and her little necklace.
