Baby Parker

a lifestyle newborn session in benton kentucky

Some newborns sleep a ton during their first weeks of life and maybe they are unaware of where exactly they’re sleeping – because, you know, they’re asleep. But some newborns are like my son and are only happy when they’re being held and if they can be held by momma, when then all is right in the world. I think we all know which newborns are the norm in this situation!

Baby Parker was that second (normal) newborn during his first round of newborn portraits but both new mom Stephanie and I were totally OK with that! He wanted to be held, mom wanted to hold him! And I wanted pictures of his precious body in mom’s gentle arms! Win win! Round two was a few days later, when dad was available, in their home and everyone was relaxed and ready which made the whole session go so smoothly!

The best time to book your newborn session is as soon as you know you want to work with me. I do not book specific dates on the calendar, instead I book a limited number of babies each month. This allows me to offer flexible scheduling options after each baby makes their arrival earth side, since babies come in their own perfect timing. I do everything I can to help new parents stay relaxed and this is just one way I can keep the process as stress-free as possible. If you have waited until the last minute to book a newborn photographer, feel free to reach out! If I can squeeze you in, I will! I don’t want anyone to miss out on having this beautiful and fleeting season captured for forever keeping.
