Baby Lucas – 10 days old

My friend Gabi had a baby 10 days ago, and I was able to meet him today.  He was an instant snuggler, and melted right into me.  He had that new baby smell and that new baby sweetness.  I think he also has her gorgeous eyes.  Maybe the next time I see him he’ll open them up for the camera.  Here are a few pictures I took while I was visiting him today.

Miles – Newborn Shoot – Livonia, MI

It feels like just yesterday it was Election Day and my cousin Frannie called and told me that she was expecting (you may have seen my earlier posts with her maternity shoot, and later some images from his Bris). She didn’t find out if it was a boy or a girl, so I was very excited to find out when he arrived that he was a boy!  There weren’t any boy kids on that side of the family except for mine.  Time has just flown by, and we are so excited to have Miles join our family!  He is so sweet and precious.  He has gorgeous big brown eyes, which he mostly kept closed during our shoot, and absolutely amazing little lips.

Welcome to the family, little Miles!

Bris Milah – West Bloomfield, MI

Today I had the honor of attending my baby cousin’s Bris Milah.  I got a little teary, as we welcomed him into this world with songs and prayers that have been shared through many generations.  You may have seen my post a couple of weeks ago with the maternity pictures I took with my cousin.  I’ve been so happy to finally meet baby Miles.  He’s also one of the cutest newborns I’ve ever seen!  Not that I’m biased, or anything.  You can see for yourself.  I was very pleased to be able to take a picture of 4 generations.  There is one with Miles’ Great Great Aunt Charlotte, his Bubbe (grandma), his mom and him.

(Thanks to momma Frannie for taking the pictures at the end of me holding Miles.  I really wanted a picture of me with him, and I’m always behind the camera.)

To Tell the Truth – Maternity shoot -Royal Oak

My cousin Frannie is due any day now to have her very first baby.  She’s a very creative person.  She’s an actress and director, and has co-founded a theater company, Magenta Giraffe.  When she heard that I was interested in shooting a maternity shoot that was more “real life”, she jumped at the chance.  I’m calling this one a “To Tell the Truth” shoot.  We discussed some of the things about her pregnancy that have stood out…things that are different from usual.  Some of these were a sore back, sore and swollen feet, going to the bathroom constantly, spending lots of time on her couch with her cats, taking a ton of supplements, always feeling hot, craving Dunkin’ Donuts double-chocolate donuts, falling asleep when trying to work, and having a hard time getting comfortable in bed.

Here’s our “real life” take on maternity pictures!

Mother’s Day – Special opportunity – The Perfect Gift

Mother’s Day is only about a month away.  Are you wondering what would be a perfect gift for your mom (or wife)?  My mom has always been so hard to get gifts for.  She buys what she wants, and she isn’t very vocal about what she’d like.  So I thought about what moms who are hard to shop for would like.  What can’t you buy in a store?  Pictures.  Not just any pictures, but the kinds of images that make you see yourself as the beautiful, loving, amazing person that you are.  Images that capture the bond between family and friends.

In celebration of Mother’s Day, I’m offering 5 very special sessions.  Each will be a double session – mother/daughter, sisters, friends – with gorgeous hair and makeup and a $50 print credit for each person.  The total value of this package is $450.  I’m offering it to the first 5 people who reserve their dual session for $150.  After the first 5, it will be available until Mother’s Day for only $200.  There will be images of each person separately and some together.  You can either book the appointment for this month as an early gift (so that the images are in your hands by Mother’s Day) or surprise her with it on Mother’s Day and book it for afterwards.  Just let me know which way you’d prefer.

Some ideas I had were for a daughter to give it to her mother and do the shoot together, or for a husband to give to his wife to celebrate with her mother, her daughter, her sister or her best friend.  It would even be a great way for sisters or friends to just treat themselves!

After your session you will both look and feel gorgeous, so plan a night out!
