Easter Sessions w/ LIVE baby chicks. Weekend #1

// Author: Lauren // 0 Comments

Sometime in February I started thinking about doing Easter “Mini” Sessions (only 30 minutes) in the studio, but i wanted it to be unique and fun.
Friends & Family quickly suggested: “have Josh dress up in an Easter bunny costume.” << I cannot tell you how many times I heard that.
Fortunately (for him), that was not what I was looking for. What family doesn’t have one of those Easter Bunny photos where the child is screaming and crying, horrified by the man dressed as an oversized rabbit???
So I put out a request on my facebook page… trying to find anyone interested in lending me their bunnies… chicks… lambs… ducks… etc. Quickly I got a response back from a new friend, she was buying baby chicks and I could borrow them! YAY! Success. & I loved the idea.
Quicky, I had alot of interest & response for these sessions and I cannot thank you all enough. Last weekend I had 4 sessions and I think all the kids did great, some more eager than others… but nonetheless we got some great photos! So here are some of my favorites from last weekend: Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Easter Photos Live Baby Chicks

This weekend I have 5 more sessions with the baby chicks, yay! & I can’t wait to share those on the blog too. Again, thank you to everyone who participated. It was alot of fun and I look forward to doing something similar again next year!

Callie Ann – Newborn <3

Earlier this week Callie Ann made her way into the studio, 6 days new. She was a big, beautiful baby (born at 9lbs) and extremely calm. I hadn’t had a newborn session in awhile and I was excited. After months of collecting newborn props (mainly thanks to my crafty sister-in-law), watching newborn tutorial videos, & pinning tons of newborn inspiration to my pinterest account – I finally had a sweet, soft, cuddly newborn to photograph!
Congratulations Jen & Joe – Callie Ann is absolutely adorable & gorgeous! Joe, you better start cleaning your guns now… I have a feeling big brother Ty will help! & Thanks for bringing her into the studio and hanging out.

Here is a few sneak peeks at the
The adorable headband and tutu my sister-in-law made.
She slept so well, I couldn’t have asked for a better newborn.
Another homemade headband and wrap. Isn’t she precious?
Her sweet big brother, Ty, even joined in for a few photos.
& speaking of her big brother. He turned 3 this week! Happy Birthday Ty! I know you are going to be a great big brother!

After this session, it was confirmed- I <3 newborn sessions! I recently created and posted “new beginnings” discount bundles and I already had one bundle booked this week. Definitely looking forward to her maternity session next month, followed up with a sweet baby boy newborn in June.
