Ashlin and Connor’s grandmother actually set up this photo shoot as a Mother’s Day gift for their mom which I think is such a fabulous idea. So if there's any Dad's out there reading this, take note for next year! I mean seriously, what mom doesn’t want to be surprised with photos of their cute little kiddos on Mother's Day? The tricky part is getting them to keep the secret!

Don't get me wrong, I think props are great and everything, but I just love when clients bring items from home that have real sentimental value. I think I speak for so many moms out there when I say these are some of the moments we cherish most…when they're completely content with their favorite toy/object of the moment. We hold on tight to images like these because we know quite well that soon they'll be moving on to something new. Why must they grow up so fast?

Baby Nelle https://sarahmacomberphotography.com/blog/2016/5/baby-nelle I have to admit, I’m a little behind with my blogging. Between shooting, editing, painting my studio and just being a mom in general, my blog has sadly taken a back seat. It’s been well over a month since I photographed baby Nelle (how cute is that name by the way?) but I still wanted to share her story and her beautiful images. I spent several hours with Nelle trying to get her to dose off to sleep so we could get some sleepy, naked poses for mom and dad. However, she was wide awake and wanted to show off those bright blue eyes...so we just went with it.

Despite the numerous feedings, diaper changes and rocking, she probably only slept a total of ten minutes, but that's the way it goes sometimes. It just goes to show you that every shoot is different, and although posing naked wasn’t in the cards for baby Nelle, the outcome was still great nonetheless. Plus, it always helps when you have a mom and dad who are as patient and easy-going as Nelle’s. Her parents met in college at BC so they wanted to work their alma mater into the shoot. How adorable is this?

So, the lesson here is that as moms (and as photographers), we want nothing more than to take stunning photos of our newborn babies. We may come into a shoot with certain expectations or an idea of what we want in our heads, but it’s important to remember that the baby is going to do what it wants to do, and that is totally ok. Nobody wins when you try and force something that just isn't mean't to be. As long as you remain flexible and patient, you’re bound to get beautiful, timeless images.

Gabriella's Easter Shoot https://sarahmacomberphotography.com/blog/2016/3/gabriellas-easter-shoot Although Easter has already come and gone, I'm finally getting around to posting a few of my favorites from Gabriella's Mini Sessions. Gabby is my neighbor and I've been dying to photograph her. I mean seriously...look at this face! My favorite part of the session was when she wanted to pose with her blanket named "Kiki." It's so special to have these kind of memories to look back at when they get older. I'm so happy that I was able to capture them for her...it's why I love what I do.

Jackson's Easter Shoot https://sarahmacomberphotography.com/blog/2016/3/jacksons-easter-shoot Here are a few of my favorite images from baby Jackson's Easter Mini Session. I can't believe it's been three months since I took his newborn photos...he's growing so fast! He was such a great sport. He even let us sneak in a few shots in his Bruin's gear for Daddy!
