Fresh Mainland Arrival | West Ashley, SC In-Studio Newborn Mini Session

This perfect little newborn was photographed in-studio in West Ashley, SC in our mini session.

She stayed awake just long enough to investigate what was going on, and then off to sleep she went for the entire hour of her session.

We had to include a nod to Dad's Naval career in our newborn mini session. They are a submarine family like us!

Mom and Dad moved here to the Charleston Area from Hawaii while she was pregnant, and baby was born shortly after arriving.

We are so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a beautiful time in the life of this family.

Sisterly Love | West Ashley, SC In-Studio Newborn Mini Session

This pretty new baby and her big sister did amazingly well at their newborn mini photo session at the studio in West Ashley. Big sister is falling beautifully into her role and is so sweet and loving with her new baby sister.

She loves being mommy's helper and her sweet personality and adorable giggles made shooting these sister pictures so much fun.

We took advantage of her short snooze to get some classic, sleepy pictures.

She woke up, but was content so we were able to get some wide-eye pictures. What a gorgeous little newborn! This was such a wonderful in-studio mini session.

First Look: Charleston Newborn Session

He was pretty good to me this morning

There is something so special about having a newborn at home. There were several moments while I was shooting that mom or dad would stop and sigh -- partly from being tired, but mostly from the sheer joy of finally having their little girl home. 

The floral "E" hung above the crib. These flowers were used during their wedding and now find a home in their daughter's nursery. How sweet is that?

Mom was worried we weren't going to get any pictures of her baby since she was already two weeks old. 14 days is usually where newborn photographers start to squirm since babies tend to be more alert and  particular about their hands, arms, feet, etc.  While this little miss did not want to miss anything at first, she finally tuckered out. I don't know about you, but I think we got mom some adorable images!

I said my final goodbye and walked to my car feeling inspired and grateful for the wonderful people I get to work with. A fresh baby, a new mom, excited grandparents, and morning light will do that to you.

I always end sessions with an all white portion. While I love the beginning with color, it's always these end shots that tug at my heart.
