Almost time for the giveaway!!

Hello All!

So today is the last day to enter my blog giveaway! (See a couple posts down if you need to know details.) Can you believe it's already the end of July?? Where has the summer gone?

Next Tuesday, August 4th, is when the winner will be drawn. I will be seeing my adorable 3 year old niece on that day, and will let her do the honors of drawing the name out of the hat. Be sure to look back next week to see the post announcing the winner!

Have a great weekend!! :)

Too Cute at Two Weeks...

Many parents have asked me how long they should wait after their baby is born to have a newborn session. To get the sweet (and a lot of times sleeping) newborn look, I would recommend two weeks old or younger. After two weeks, they will start to move more, which makes it a little bit more challenging to get the cuddly newborn poses. And because they will be sleeping a lot, it's a great time to capture their little hands and feet--they'll sleep right through it!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing this precious newborn baby girl. She was right at two weeks old at the time of the session, and she was a great model. It was a really neat session. Not only was she adorable, but I went to high school with the new (and beaming!) Mom & Dad so it was fun catching up in between shots.

What a sweet baby girl she is! Just look at those little fingers and toes...
