Bright Eyes | NH Newborn Photographer

This little sweetie was just 8 days old when I photographed her.  Normally I love sleeping babies but she had the biggest, brightest eyes and was so alert for most of the time that I was there. It amazes me that someone so little and new can already have so much personality as she certainly did.  She is so well loved and cared for by her parents and I can’t wait to watch her grow in to that big personality.

Atticus | Seven

And just like that, he is seven years old.  One missing tooth, still an impish grin, and forever making us smile.  Atticus has always brought the sunshine in to our family.  His enthusiasm for life is infectious and even when he’s mad he is adorable.  He loves birthdays more than any person I’ve ever met but he knows I’m not the biggest fan of seeing my kids get older, so he climbed into my lap this morning and said, “Mom, you can just pretend that I’m still six”.  Thanks, Bud.  Thanks for your laughter and free spirit. Thanks for dressing up in costumes and creating traps in the woods. Thanks for keeping life simple and fun, even though I’m still mad that you hide snakes on my pillow at night. I hope seven years old is the best age it can be for you.  I know you will find joy and laughter throughout the year because that is what you do.  But I still expect lots of snuggles too.  Love, Mom

Baby Quinn | NH Newborn Photographer

Oh how I love this family! Baby Quinn was just 7 days old when I photographed him and his big sister Savannah and their amazing parents.  He is absolutely perfect and I just adored his Peter Rabbit nursery.  It always makes me so happy to see new siblings together and know that they will have each others friendship their whole lives.  These two are about as cute as can be and I am so looking forward to watching them grow together.

Baby Emmerich | NH Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Emmerich joined his big sister and amazing parents just two weeks ago.  He was only seven days old when I photographed him and cute as a button!  From his adorable pirate themed nursery to his gorgeous doting sister, this little guy has it made.  And I think you can tell from his contented little face that he knows how lucky he is.  Here are just a few of my favorites from our newborn session.
