Fresh 48 // St. Louis Newborn Photographer

I had the honor of taking pictures for a dear friend’s “Fresh 48 Hospital Session.”  My biggest challenge with newborns has always been to not let those little toes and fingers distract me. Oh...and that little newborn baby smell — it’s just too much!

When we decided to do a hospital session with our newly formed family of four we knew that Katie would be the perfect photographer. She came to the hospital the day after Frankie was born and captured some beautiful images and memories. Labor and delivery can be such a blur and while you try to remember every detail, things happen quickly and little moments occur while you’re not even looking. Katie’s photographs have now forever captured our first moments with Frankie and welcoming her into our family.

Fresh 48 // St. Louis Newborn Photographer

A wonderful, special someone arrived a few days before Christmas.  No, it wasn’t a jolly old man in a red suit, it was a 7 pound and 15 ounce bundle of  joy. The birth of Rosemary Bernice was an answer to a LOT of prayers. That’s why I don’t hesitate to call her, “a little miracle.”

When I arrived, we did pictures with baby, mom and dad. Madeline was glowing and Sean was being a good sport letting me take pictures of him :)  After that, the real moment of truth arrived, meeting big sister. What a treat to be a part of it all, witnessing the Kirkland’s become a family of four.

Zoref Newborn Session

I loved spending the morning in the Zoref’s beautiful home. I was honored to photograph their newborn session! Between baby Fredrick’s tiny nose and his big sister’s big blue eyes, it was pretty much cuteness overload.
