Miss Joyce Olivia {Littleton Newborn Photography}

I'm so excited to share little Joyce's newborn photos with you!  Not only was she a perfect doll for her session, but she shares birth days with my own little one, which just makes us happy since her momma and I are friends.

Little Joyce slept through her entire set, waking a little towards the end but overall, I couldn't have asked for a better session.  Stay tuned for part two, when we can get Joyce's three big brothers in photos, ahhh, I can't wait!

I couldn't decide between the first two images' editing styles.  What do you think?

Enjoy this precious little girl's portraits, including her Rainbow Baby portrait.

For long you’ll live and high you’ll fly and smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry and all you touch and all you see is all your life will ever be.

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!

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!

Amelia's Newborn Session

Can I say that I just LOVE newborns?!  I had the privilege of meeting Amelia's momma Ranie at a mutual maternity modeling photo shoot with Mia Harlow Photography.   I really got along with her and through conversation, we all determined that Mia didn't specialize in newborns and Ranie was from out of town and wanted newborn photos done, since she had portraits taken of her other daughter Emerson.  It was like fate that we were modeling together that day!  

As luck would have it, our due dates were three days apart, but my son came about a month early and little Amelia was a week overdue!  The timing worked out well for us to get together for her photos.

Pro parent photo session tip: white noise maker/app on your phone.  Once we finally had Amelia's tummy full, the white noise I played from my phone kept her in a deep, happy sleep and really made the session finish beautifully.

Enjoy Amelia's beautiful session, with a special appearance of her big sister Emerson!

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!
