Archive for April, 2010

Though I took “April off”…I still worked until late last night.  But I’m now officially on vacation.  I will not be answering phone calls or emails as I will not be in the area 🙂  Please leave me a phone message, or an email if you need to book a session for May.  If you have your baby in the next couple weeks, please title your email with the date of your baby’s arrival and I will return emails as soon as I get back.  If you have not heard from me between May 1st and 5th, please be patient as there will be a lot of catching up to do.  All galleries will be down by May 1st so please have your orders placed by this date (to avoid extra fees for re-posting the galleries).   Also, make sure to have your April contest entries in as the closing date for all entries is May 1st (some great entries already so keep them coming!).

Have a great couple weeks and I’ll be in touch in May!  God bless!

I have had the most beautiful babies this month with the most amazing names!  This little princess is no exception!  Isabella Rose…isn’t that just beautiful!  Little Isabella came into the studio hungry and stayed that way for about 2 hours (mom your a trooper!).  But we got some fantastic shots!

Last baby for mom and dad…so we just had to capture the lovin 🙂

Thanks Jessica for the backdrop!  I love how it turned out 🙂

Enjoy your sneak peak and I’ll be in touch when we return from holidays in May!

Is that not just one of the prettiest names you have ever come across?  Amelia Grace…oh I could say it over and over 🙂  Amelia graced me with her presence yesterday afternoon…and I must say that i honestly don’t remember my baby being this small – (she’s now 11) – but Mia was exactly the same weight at birth as this little girl was and I believe when I brought Mia home she also went down to 6 pounds 7 ounces – just like this little girl.  So it was so neat to hold Amelia and physically get to see how small Mia once was.  Amelia was just a little sweet heart!  She was bright eyed when she came in and stayed that way for a good hour or so, but we got her to sleep (gooooo TEAM!) and there she stayed until it was time to go home….

Mom…so in love…

Doesnt’ she look like a little peanut?

Mom was super excited when the tu-tu came out 🙂  Gotta love the tu-tu’s!

…like i said…soooo tiny!

Meet Noah…this little newborn…isn’t so “little” but he is AWESOME!  I knew as soon as I saw him he is going to be a big boy!  He was over 22.5 inches at birth!  That is definately above average in the newborn Delicate Impressions stats (lol)!  This session was also done in record time!  Only an hour and a half and he was awake the entire session BUT…he just let us do whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted to! He was a big ball of perfection!

I knew he was going to be easy after this only being our second picture of the session..

Just a blink…not sleeping 😉

I think Noah is going to take after his daddy

Seriously…he let us do ANYTHING!  My little trooper 😉

…and almost fell asleep…but not quite

Enjoy your sneak peak mom and dad! I’ll be in touch in the first week of May with your gallery!

So while I’m off for the month of April (besides the 3 newborns this week lol)…I thought I would start off with a monthly challenge!  For April, lets call it the NURSERY CHALLENGE!  If I have photographed your newborn, you are elligable for this contest!  Send me an email with a picture of your nursery, and why you think you would like to see a 16×20 Gallery-Wrap canvas (no need for framing – comes ready to hang!) on your nursery wall!  Upon my return at the end of the month, I will have my family read the stories and choose who they think should win!  And no worries for those of you who have come for child photos – your contest will be announced in either May or June 🙂

Happy writing!

Meet little Mr. Luke!  Seems every pose we put him in he gave us a great big smile!  Here are just a couple for now 🙂

Even without the smiles…this little man is adorable!

so in love…

I love doing the “arm” shot because these are the one’s that show how really small your babies all once were…this one is no exception! Look how tiny he is 🙂

Thanks Bruce and Courtney for the patience while trying this picture.  I like how it turned out but I’ll keep trying 🙂

Colton…another cute name in my book of newborn favorites!  6 Days old and this little man left me with a TONNE of laundry!  I mean…3 #2’s in FIVE MINUTES of being here!  I got some pretty funny pictures too (but I’ll just share those with mom and dad!).  Colton is the son of one of our maternity models from my first bellies-2-babies workshops at the end of February (for you photographers who attended)…this is Katie’s little man! 

He didn’t want to do a whole of sleeping today (almost a record length newborn session) but when he did…we got some great shots!  I love this one…mom and dad just loving him up!

Colten put himself in this position! I had him in this awesome bucket I found at an antique store…but the way he moved his head – he actually put himself in this position!  What a model!

…He didn’t want to leave! This was our very last picture because I loved this hat!…I think he just wanted to stay 😉
