Baby Lucas | In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session | Springfield, VA Newborn Photographer

It's no secret that lifestyle newborn sessions are one of my favorite types of sessions, but I absolutely love it when I get to go into a family's home right after baby has arrived and document those first moments as a new family.  Baby Lucas arrived on Christmas Day -- what a wonderful Christmas gift!  

Alexandria, VA Lifestyle Newborn Photo Session

This gorgeous family made my job so easy!  I absolutely love lifestyle newborn photo sessions -- the sweet freshness of a newborn baby and the happiness that new little baby brings to the lives of everyone it surrounds is such a precious moment in time to capture.  

Kimber's 1 Year Photos | Pretty Pink Cake Smash | Fairbanks Photographer

Everyone get ready for a lot of cuteness and a lot of pink!  This pretty, pink cake smash was so much fun to photograph!  Kimber turned one this year and her mother thought it would be fun to do a photo session of her little girl digging into a lovely little cake.  She did an awesome job styling the session and even made the little crowns herself!  So cute!  

Baby Leighlyn Newborn Session | Fairbanks, AK Newborn Photographers

I was fortunate enough to photograph baby Leighlyn's mom and dad during their maternity session and also had the incredible opportunity to photograph baby Leighlyn's arrival into the world.  It sure was a joy to see her again during her newborn session.  She is the most mellow and beautiful baby and I think I know where she gets it from.  Congrats to this beautiful new family of three!

Baby Brooklyn Newborn Session | Fairbanks Newborn Photographer

I had so much fun with this joyful family at baby Brooklyn's newborn session.  Brooklyn is as sweet as pie and her family is no different! Enjoy a few of my favorites from the session, including a few family photos we managed to snap at the end of the session.  All I can say is...gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. 

Baby Grayson's Lifestyle Newborn PhOTO SESSION // Fairbanks Newborn Photographer

It was a treat to photography baby Grayson in more of a lifestyle setting for his newborn photos! I just love the natural light and cozy, nursery setting for newborn photos.  Grayson is a mellow and totally sweet baby and I must say - was crazy about the camera! He had so much interest in what was going on and followed the camera with his eyes the entire session - so adorable! Enjoy a few of my favorites below!

Baby Millie's Newborn Session // Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

During a trip back to North Dakota I had the wonderful opportunity to meet baby Miller (aka Millie) just a few days after she was born!  She is quite honestly one of the sweetest and most mellow babies I have ever met.  Her brother Jack was our big "helper" and I can already tell he's going to be an awesome big brother to his little sister.  I just love photographing children in their natural environments using natural light, so most of this session was spent in Miller's nursery. She's just as sweet as can be and her big brother Jack is equally adorable.  Enjoy some of my faves below! 

Cake Smash Photo Session + 1 Year Old Photos // Fairbanks Children's Photographer

This cute little gal just turned one and came into the studio on her birthday for a cake smash photo session!  What better way to celebrate turning one than by wearing a tutu and digging into a pretty, pink cake!  Happy Birthday Shay!

Baby Mia Newborn Session // Fairbanks Newborn Photographer

Baby Mia was a fresh 2 days old when she made her "modeling" debut!  She was as sweet as she looks and my guess is she gets her chill, mellow personality from her parents (first time parents by the way!)  Take a peek at a few of my favorites below and I'm sure you'll be saying "aww" before you finish scrolling.  Welcome to the world Mia!

Cardona Holiday Photo Session // Fairbanks Family Photographer

I had so much fun shooting the Cardona Holiday Photo Session!  I photographed Isaiah's 1 year old cake smash at Pioneer Park earlier this year and boy has he grown!  We opted to head back to Pioneer Park for their holiday photo session and we were lucky enough to have snow covered trees and a winter wonderland scene for their family photos.  Enjoy a few of my favorites from this winter photo session featuring hot chocolate, cozy sweaters and one cute kiddo!
