Aria Marie's 9 Month Milestone {Littleton Family Photographer}

You guys have to see how much this little one has grown, little Aria is such a doll and full of expressions!  I truly love milestone collections because once baby turns one year old, you end up with a beautiful representation of their growth and changes.  I also get to be the lucky one to experience their growth with each special set.  This baby girl is crawling all over the place, cutting teeth like crazy and stealing hearts with that endearing smile.  What a great family to photograph!  Enjoy this set from Aria's 9 month milestone session.  

The next appearance of this little one will be for her one year portraits, where has the time gone?! 

Milestone Collections make a fabulous baby shower gift!  Milestone increments may be customized to your taste, whether it's Newborn-Six Months-One year or every three months as we've seen with Aria, I can work with you! Contact me to learn more.


Ready to book your session?  Awesome, I'm excited!  I'd love to meet you and chat about your family over some coffee.  We can bond over the ups and downs of parenthood, you're definitely not alone there!  Stay connected with me for special events, offers and more!

About the Author:  I'm Melanie Lynn, I love storytelling through photos and making new friends with my clients.  I'm a mommy to two adorable boys and couldn't imagine life without them.  My hubby is my biggest fan and supporter- just incredible!  I enjoy making people laugh, playing with my kiddos, reading all sorts of novels and scrap-booking.  I'm a foodie - I love trying new food (or new coffee shops!) and I love making new foods.  I believe in preserving memories through photographs, for generations to come.  I love to dream of what my great grandparents were like in their 20's raising my grandfather in southern Indiana.  The photos I take of my children are a living memory for their children and their grandchildren.  Babies change so much, I love to capture their changes in a time capsule, since the first year is such a change for the whole family!

The Road to Parenthood {Littleton Family Photography}

If there's one thing I absolutely adore, it's when I get the privilege to document a couple throughout the many stages of life.  Hanna and Dan are two of the most genuine people I know and I've been lucky enough to photograph their engagement, wedding, anniversary photos and now the next step in their lives... adoption!  It takes a special family to bring a child (or baby!) into their home and into their waiting hearts.  Hanna and Dan are up for the challenge and beyond deserving of the blessing of adoption.  This is the first of many shoots documenting this momentous journey into parenthood and I cannot be more excited to share!

Here are some great memories of some of our previous shoots, aren't these two just adorable!?


And here they are now, after all their ups and downs facing their next challenge!

Eli's Newborn Session {Littleton Newborn Photography}

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I just LOVE newbies!  Eli was so perfect for his session, his mommy Melissa had him prepped with a full tummy and a warm family room.  Melissa and I go way back, all the way to middle school and she now has two boys almost exactly the same age as mine.  So naturally the session went smoothly and little Eli cooperated so very nicely.

Enjoy this sweet little one's debut as much as I enjoyed capturing it!

Hadley's Newborn Session

Little miss Hadley McKay was such a sweetie for her photo session.  I went to high school with her momma Amanda so I couldn't resist reaching out to her to photo her newest bundle of joy.  This is the second instance of Irish twins on the blog, Hadley has a brother 363 days older than her and he's just as cute as a button, as you'll see here shortly.  

One of the best tips I can give to new parents when preparing for their newborn's photo shoot is to have extra everything at the ready- food, diapers, wipes... that way we can care for their needs and keep the session going smoothly.  Amanda had extra food ready for Hadley which allowed us to lull her back to sleep and finish off her photos.

Enjoy this little beauty's portraits, I sure enjoyed her session!

Wayne's Newborn Session

What an adorable little boy and such a perfect model.  Wayne was born just after the new year and has been such a little fighter!  Health complications and NICU visits postponed our shoot for about three weeks but he was well worth the wait!

When I arrived for his session, I was pleased to find his momma Alicia feeding him in their cozy warm house - just perfect timing for the little guy!  We worked with Wayne, trying to lull him to sleep as much as possible and the patience really paid off.  I'm so excited to share the results with you, enjoy!
