I think this snow we have is making us all want SPRING!! Snow is just not welcome after February :) Today I am left dreaming of hot summer days by the pool so I am posting baby James 7 month session from last summer. I can’t believe how much he had changed from his newborn session! I am in LOVE with his rolls. Does it get any cuter than this? Chubby babies are so darn cute. He is such a sweet smiley baby and his big sister is just the cutest. She really enjoyed getting her photos taken and gave me lots of personality. Hoping for the days where I can feel the warm summer sun during my photo sessions!!
Have I mentioned how blessed I feel to be allowed into such special moments to photograph? Every time I photograph a birth it’s like I am experiencing the miracle it is for the first time. It is so special to watch the mom work so hard to bring her little one into this world and to watch the amazing support of the father. The two together are a force. The look on the dad’s face when he can see the baby coming, the look on the mom’s face when her baby is placed on her chest for the first time, the amazing support from the nurses and doctor – it’s such a team effort and an amazing one at that.
I am so excited about the births I have booked for this year. Witnessing the miracle of life brings me to tears and awe every time. If you would like to learn more about Portraits By Lucinda and birth photography click here.
As I showed up at Shawnee Mission Medical’s birth center to capture Benjamin’s birth his dad was in a chair reading away at a baby names book. How funny is it that they were still trying to find that perfect name! His mom was so strong and worked so hard to bring this little guy into this world. He was a big boy weighing in at 9 lbs. 3 oz.! Thanks so much to Benjamin’s parents for choosing me to capture this special day!
For all of my birth stories I put together a fusion birth video. This includes both stills and video, the combination of the two really tells the story. The video capturing your babies first cry, first bath, the sound of your babies heart not the monitor. All such special memories to have. If you would like to watch the fusion video click here.
Happy Valentines Day!!
I thought this was the perfect post to share today! I captured this adorable 1st birthday last year for M Magazine! Due to the commercial nature of this work I couldn’t share it till 3 months after publication. I thought it may be strange to share Valentines in May so I waited till today! I really enjoyed working on a commercial shoot again. I get so inspired working with a stylist and art director. It reminds me of my days working at the Hallmark Cards photography studio.
This little boys birthday falls close to Valentines day so his mom (Erin Volante) planned an adorable birthday party themed around the holiday! It’s of course done in the most talented DIY style. Seriously Erin you are the best at this stuff!!
