Frederick Mini Session Winner

So, in honor of getting 450 "likes" on Facebook, I did a drawing for a mini-session. How exciting! In order to qualify, people needed to "like" my page (how else would they be able to find out if they won!), and tag a friend in the comments. That's all!  Pretty easy, right?

Well, I drew the winners via a random generator and got my two winners!  One of them contacted me immediately and asked to pass her free mini session on to her neighbor, who had also entered the drawing.  I was feeling generous and agreed!  Man, am I glad that I did!  This family was such fun!  I absolutely love when my job is fun (I mean, it is mostly fun, but it is a business, so there are boring parts!).

Here are their favorites from this session!

Iris: Newborn Session

Iris was 13 days new when she came to visit me in my studio and what a doll!  She slept like a true dream and let me pose her, change her, and snuggle her all without waking up!  Newborn sessions have the tendency to take quite a while (I aim for between 2-3 hours) because we go by baby's schedule and demeaner.  Well, with Miss Iris, it was only about an hour!  Had I known how fantastic she was going to be, I would have 5 more setups ready! 

Here are a few of her mom's favorites:

There are so many more that I love that I may be a "throwback" to someday!

Baby J: 1 month young

Baby J: 1 month young

I had the pleasure of hanging out with this very adorable 6 week old little lady, Jocelynn.  She was a bit old for an official newborn session, as I like them in the very early, very sleepy stage, but we still had a good go of it!
