Myla Claire’s Newborn Session ~Decatur, Il Newborn Photographer~

Rachel told me she was pregnant when we did Knox’s 1 year photos, so we did a little chalkboard up so she could announce it.  Since then, I’ve been looking forward to doing her little girls pictures.  Myla arrived right on time, healthy as can be, and looking just like big brother, Knox.  Check out the gallery with a pretty complete set of pictures from our day!

Since Rachel is on her own during the day with the kiddos, we decided I’d come to her for pictures since she has the room (and the hardwood floors!).  Newborn sessions can take hours depending on how your little one sleeps, so rather than disrupt Knox’s schedule, I packed up the studio and set up shop at her house.

Myla rocked this session.  I felt a little out of my element not in my studio, but she bore with me, and did awesome for her pics.  Since she loves to eat, mom topped her off a bunch of times to keep her full.  We did wraps, the beanbag, my favorite basket, details shots, and ended the day after getting stellar pictures of Knox holding his little sister- and smiling!

I have to say I love almost all aspects of photography, but I’m most excited about newborns.  I just get chills when I see a picture turn out how I dreamed it to turn out.  I hit a lot of goals this year, but I hope for 2015 to keep on improving my newborn photography, and see an increase of newborns in my studio.

Stay tuned for news of my latest project.  It’s a long term one, and I’m super excited to be involved with this organization! The pictures are absolutely adorable, and will melt your heart!
