We had a wonderful day spending time photographing this four-day-old bundle of joy, Everleigh.   She was so precious I thought I was going to have to stop Lola from taking Everleigh home with her!  Even though they both were a little sleep deprived, Tara and Nick were so accommodating that we were able to get some very classic and very cool shots.  We were just about to pack up when Haley, the dog decided to join in the fun and we’re certainly glad she did.  Congratulations Tara & Nick on your beautiful daughter!

We had the pleasure of spending  a couple of  hours with Tara photographing her soon to be bundle of joy!  With all the snow hitting NJ, I didn’t think we were ever going to be able to get this done, but she bundled up, braved the weather and headed over.  Tara has such a natural beauty that everything we tried, worked out amazingly.  She was up for any idea and was a real trooper.  She is due in mid March and can’t wait to meet the little one.  Keep an eye out for her newborn shoot!

Be careful what you ask for… you might just get it!  And so glad I did.  It all started with a comment I left about a wonderful image that Sue Burrough had taken of  a recent newborn.  Sue asked if I was serious about joining her during one of her newborn sessions.  Having not had the opportunity to photograph a baby in years (the one I have went and grew up on me), I jumped at the chance.  Baby Clara was just so content to sit and watch as we worked around her.  Not having been around a baby this young in 14 years caught me a slightly off guard.  I was getting something out of my bag, I looked up and Sue was undressing the baby.  I had forgotten how small and delicate they are.  Sue had to move some stuff and asked if I would pick the baby up while she did.  It all comes back in an instant and I held baby Clara as Sue rearranged baskets.  The big difference between a guy and a girl photographing a newborn, is maternal instinct! The baby fussed slightly.  Sue knew just what to do and went over, picked up the baby, and burped her!  We were back to shooting in no time!   Thanks to Sue for letting me tag along.  Melissa, you have a beautiful little daughter… hope you enjoy the images.
