Cora | Moore, Oklahoma Newborn Photographer

Say Hello to sweet Cora! She was so good for me at her newborn session last week. She was also great for some sweet baby cuddles and smiled like crazy. When her Mama first contacted me about her session, I won't lie, I was nervous. Cora's Mom and Dad are local wedding photographers, Travis & Haley G Photography. I've never been hired by another photographer, and it definitely added to my normal before session nerves. But I had the absolute joy of meeting them for Cora's Fresh 48 session, and they are the nicest, coolest couple. And Cora's newborn session was no different, they were so sweet and an absolute joy to work with.

Cora's Mama requested pink, gray and white for her session, to match her nursery, which her Dad is diligently working on. I may be biased, but I think Cora looked equally adorable on every single color.

Cora | Fresh 48 Hospital Session | Oklahoma City Newborn Photographer

Can I just say how much I love my job!?! I got to meet sweet Cora and her lovely parent's at their Fresh 48 hospital session last week, at Baptist Hospital. Cora is teeny tiny, and ohhh so adorable!

I just love photographing families at Fresh 48 sessions, there is just something so sweet and honest about those first hours after birth. It's the most amazing thing when two people become parent's for the first time, and seeing all the love and wonder is breathtaking. Unlike posed newborn sessions, Fresh 48 sessions focus on connections and emotion. There's no posing, no props, nothing but a beautiful new baby and family. Don't get me wrong, posed newborn sessions are my joy and I love them, but there's just something about documenting new life in an honest, raw way that makes me happy.

I can't wait for Cora's newborn session soon!

Deetya | Edmond, Ok Newborn Photographer

Oh sweet little Deetya! She was so good for me at our newborn mini session earlier this week in Edmond. She was a bit older than the typical newborns I photograph, at 2 months old, but she did just as good if not better, than a 2 week old. She was perfectly content when she was awake, and let me pose her/move her when she was asleep. I used my baby talk magic on her when we started, and even got some smiles and coo's.

Mom requested white, peach and pink for Deetya's newborn session, and I love how the colors look with her gorgeous skin tone. Peach has been a super popular color for baby girls lately, and I don't mind at all. Peach looks great with pretty much any skin tone, and I have a ton of peach backdrops and accessories, but until recently I didn't get requests for it very often.

Norman Oklahoma Newborn Photographer | Mr. S

Say Hello to the adorable Mr. S! He was such a cutie at his newborn session a couple weeks ago, and his parents couldn't have been nicer! I love getting to chat with Mom and Dad about labor/delivery, how things have gone since they've been home from the hospital, what they're thoughts are on becoming a parent. I especially love chatting with first time parents, who are experiencing all these amazing firsts with their new baby.

The thing is those first few weeks at home with your newborn are amazing but they're also the most sleep deprived time of your life, at least in my experience. Your beautiful little baby is only this small, and curly for such a tiny amount of time. Everyday that passes they become more and more acclimated to life outside the womb, and are more awake/alert. Capturing that brief moment when they're still 100% new/curly/sleepy is what a newborn portrait session is all about. Because the truth is, in a few months you'll be back to some sort of "normal" sleeping routine, and life will become a new kind of normal, and all those little details about how your new baby looked will be fuzzy, but a portrait will last.

Oklahoma City Newborn Photographer | Baby Magdalen

Say Hello to beautiful little Magdalen (Isn't her name awesome?!?) She was such a gorgeous girl! She wasn't exactly in the mood to have her pictures done on the morning of our session, but sometimes that's just the way it goes. At a newborn session, baby is running the show, and sometimes that means that no amount of cuddling/nursing/soothing in the world is gonna make them fall asleep. But as you can see whether she was sleeping or wide awake we got some gorgeous images for Mom and Dad.
