Sothard Family Newborn Session

There’s nothing more precious than a newborn baby. I feel honored that the Sothard family chose me to photograph their little girl, shortly after their precious daughter was born. I came to their beautiful home and brought everything I needed for the session including portable lighting, a basket for the baby to lay in, wraps and swaddles, hats and bows, blankets, and more. 

I know what it’s like to have a newborn so I did my best to make the photo session as easy as possible. My goal was to take care of all the details so that the Sothards could relax and enjoy the session. Their daughter will only be a baby for a short while so I want them to take in her adorable little fingers and feet while they can.

Even though my newborn sessions are booked for two hours, they can go longer or shorter. It all depends on the baby’s temperament. I’ve photographed many newborns and have two kiddos of my own. So oftentimes, I know what to do to get a baby to calm down and pose. 


You’ll notice the rabbit ear hat in these photos. We incorporated it because the Sothards are huge fans of the movie, The Christmas Story. I’m willing to bet their baby will love the movie too once she’s old enough to watch and understand it. 

If you’re pregnant and interested in a newborn session to capture your little one’s first days or weeks of life, I encourage you to learn more about the packages I offer, and to get in touch. I can’t wait to meet you and your bundle of joy!
