My friend Jen of Jen Stevenson Photo
recently had the opportunity to photograph brand new twins. If you are a frequent visitor to my blog, you know that I primarily specialize in weddings, but I came along with Jen to assist and help her, since two babies can be a handful for posing!

Jen has the better line-up of lenses (and skills!) for newborns, so if you are in the Orlando area and expecting, you should contact her. I did get a few close-up images of the tiny newborn’s face and features using my macro, and I wanted to share just one image. They don’t stay this little for long, and it is important to capture every tiny detail from eyelashes to mouth to little nose!

This little one is my second cousin and she is so darn cute!

As long as I can remember, my cousin Hilary has always been very motherly. I even remember one summer when I was about seven, so we’re going back like twenty years here, she played house with us younger kids and we had real food that she prepared…I think it was cereal? Anyway, that was a big deal to have real food while playing and my cousin made a great pretend mom.

And now, she’s a real life mom. And I can tell she’s very, very good at it. We talked while posing her new little girl, S, about her easy pregnancy, delivery, and newborn. Some woman are just born to do this, motherhood is truly their calling. And it is amazing and wonderful to grow up with a little girl and then watch her become an awesome mother to her little girl.

I love this Shrek hat that her Aunt Coleen made! (Photographer friends and blog readers, Coleen has a business of her own and can make all kinds of knit hats for your needs, so check her out: Fare Feathers)

Samera was fourteen days when we photographed her due to my travel schedule, which is right at the edge for newborn photography, since the babies start to become more active and less sleepy. But S. was a great poser!

And she LOVED being swaddled. So adorable.

Hilary, enjoy this first holiday season with your little girl! 🙂 Thanks so much for letting me photograph her first days!

Momma-to-be Erin had her baby last month! 🙂 I blogged Erin’s maternity session here!

Baby Stock, Mom, and Dad are doing great. Let me tell you, Erin and Bo do not seem like first-time parents at all. They definitely had everything under control!

Their daughter is just gorgeous. I love the fact that she opened her eyes for this shot.

Erin actually suggested this pose below; I’m going to use her idea in the future for other shoots because I love it so much.

I know a lot of professionals use fake flooring for a set up like this above, but I wanted to point out that this is Erin and Bo’s actual real floor. They put it in themselves and having a nice floor makes my job as a photographer easier! (But if your place doesn’t have great floors, don’t worry, we have a few tricks up our sleeve for that.)

Baby Stock was just so sweet, how can you not smile when you see this photo?

Thanks so much for having me over to document your little one’s first few days! Babies are truly miracles and so precious.

A few weeks ago, I drove out to meet Erin and her husband at their home near Orlando. Erin was thirty-five weeks pregnant, but we’d be in contact prior to the shoot for over a month, so I was SO excited to meet her and get to shooting!

Erin has an adorable townhouse with many places for photography, including her very cute nursery. Honestly, I wish every single shoot took place with such beautiful surroundings!

Cool fact: Erin and her husband met working at Walt Disney World. If you look carefully at the photos, you can see some drawings from favorite Disney movies on their nursery wall 😉

Erin and Bo are such great people; you can tell they are going to be amazing parents. And they photograph incredibly well too! At nine months pregnant, Erin has inspired the most emails and inquiries I have gotten so far as a photographer, so thank you, Erin, for making pregnancy look so beautiful and easy!
Their daughter is due practically any day now, so check back in for some newborn shots with the little one!
