My Lockport newborn session with Miss S is one for the books! Especially because she is the newest addition to my family and I get to love on her whenever I want. She’s the third of now three gorgeous gals that my cousin have been blessed with. Dad is for sure outnumbered now!

The third baby always seem to be the easiest because I think they just have to go with the flow, but they have really lucked out with Sage. At a week old she has already been sleeping through the night. She even slept through her whole session and took the most precious sibling pictures with her big sisters.

Big sister Ivy was the best assistant for me as well and to top it off she told me how beautiful I looked when I arrived ☺️. I seriously have the best family and I’m so honored that I get to capture all of these moments for them.

Oh my word, sessions don’t get much better than this for me. A perfect baby girl, gorgeous neutral color scheme and the sweetest fur brother ever! Anyone that knows me, knows that I have a huge soft spot for dogs – especially when the are labradors.

Of course when Mom and Dad requested he be in the family photos and take a “sibling” shot it was a definite yes from me!

This session went so well with barely a peep out of their little lady and Mom was just glowing.

I envision many more adorable family sessions with the picture perfect L Family.

Today might be my Birthday, but I wanted to share a little gift with all of you!

Anyone who books a newborn session with me before February 14th will receive 10% off their session. I pencil my newborns in a week after their due date with room for adjustment as it is very rare for a baby to arrive on their scheduled due date. Because of this I take a limited number of scheduled newborns a week to make sure all of my clients are seen within the perfect timeframe.

Summer months are already booking up so don’t delay in taking advantage of this sweet gift!

I was so excited to take Miss S’s first birthday photos! I just knew they would be styled perfectly.

Miss S has the best little gummy grin and was so cute giving “love” to the blankets and fuzzy chair I brought. She just rocked her session.

With cake smashes we usually never know how they’ll go since it’s usually their first time getting yummy sugary sweets. Miss S was definitely on board with her cake and ever so delicately eating it until disaster struck…her toes got frosting on them 😂. We all learned very quickly frosted toes make for a very sad Miss S. Luckily I got plenty of adorable images before her toes touched the cake.

It’s always so much fun with the J Family!
