Studio Newborn Session – Coleman, MI


Hello little one.


As usual, I wanted to set my camera down and just snuggle this little cutie! There is nothing more intoxicating than that new baby smell!

Something that really stood out to me during Cecily’s session was when her mama said something like “we wanted to be sure we invested in her newborn session and got good ones!”. I can’t stress enough how much I believe in those words and I want to touch on that a bit. Before I became well versed in all things newborn, I probably would have said a baby is still a “newborn” til he or she is around what…. 2 or 3 months old? Right? Undoubtedly a 2/3 month old is still very new and very precious and very much a “newborn”. But, as any mama can tell you, those first couple weeks fly by so quickly.


And your heart just aches for the time when they were brand new and tiny. Before you know it, your baby has chubbier legs, and her hair is starting to change color. Those sweet soft little curly fingernails suddenly look longer and stronger. And what is this? Size 3 month clothing? Already? How!? STOP TIME PLEASE!

And that’s what I do.
I stop time. 
And the window is so small.

I’m so grateful and honored that Cecily’s parents chose me to stop time for them with Cecily’s newborn session. Lee and Rachael, you are so blessed. She is beautiful and you will be the most wonderful parents!
