“Mae” I have one please! [Newborn]

Meet Mae, the daughter of my nephew, Kirk, and his sweet wife, Amy — shown here at just two-weeks old. Having never photographed a newborn before (officially as portraits), I asked if I could have the honor so they packed her up with brother Charlie and came to my house. My daughter came over to […]

Who knew these were your first newborn professional portraits!! Sooo precious and soooo good. (Though I’m pretty sure that some of your photos of your own grandbabies would qualify.) However, as the proud grandmother of 6, I would lose my title if I didn’t think mine were just as cute!! It is what we grandmothers do.I think I’m going to send your link to James and Cassi to see if we can’t start on #7–Mae, I have one more?

Just so there is no confusion–the above reply was from Linda Johnston. I know you know that Mary, but readers of your blog might not know the difference between the Lindas!

No, I can attest that I never took these types of pictures with my grandbabies — dang it! Yes you Mae have another one … I’ll bet James and Cassie are working on #7 already! (Blush) And I concur, you do have beautiful, cute, funny, and smart grandbabies too! What a great time of life.

Congratulations on successfully completing your first infant photo shoot! While I simply adore them all, I love the b/w with her in the little hat and the one of her head in focus and her body out of focus. You did a marvelous job- Kirk and Amy are so lucky to have these- good luck picking!!!

Mary, thank you so much for the amazing pictures! When I sent the one of the two kids to my mom, she cried. You have been so generous to our family and I want you to know how much we appreciate it! Of course, you are welcome any time to come over for a baby hold. 🙂 love them!

[…] with the tough-as-nails hubs. We were so excited. Let’s face it, after photographing newborn Mae and Marlies, I was pretty darn ready for a baby again. Not only that but I was pretty overjoyed at […]

[…] off, I just have to share Baby Mae — Kirk and Amy’s youngest. I got to take her newborn pictures and now she is 9 months and crawling. Ahhhh! She is so cute with her big round eyes and […]

Baby Ellie [Older Newborn]

Laura is a friend from work with whom I share several similarities. One of those similarities is that we each have an older daughter and younger son … very close in ages. Her first grandchild (a boy) is one month older than my first grandchild (a boy). Her second grandchild is a girl and mine […]

Love these, she is so sweet & tiny & love the naked shots. You are so great at capturing little moments we would otherwise lose sight of.

precious!!! I think you did a fantastic job. I love the 2nd picture most. You can see the expression of love on Laura’s face and the light is perfect.

Thank you Laura (a different Laura folks)! I loved the ones with Laura too – they were definitely my favorite and if I ever do this again, I will definitely know how to do some shots better or different … I hope. It was hard!
