Sweet Girl

If our session proves to be any indicator, this little girl is going to walk well before she’s a year old, and will probably crawl some time next month.  ;)  Monroe (isn’t that a beautiful name?) was one of the most active and physically advanced babies we’ve done a session with at this age.  We spent the first half of our session just holding her while she raised her head and looked around, kicking her little feet and waving her little arms and watching us with incredibly clear, focused eyes.  It was really nice to be able to take our time with her and let her settle in to the session.  After about an hour or so, and a little more milk from Mom, Monroe fell into a deep sleep and we were able to get those sweet sleeping baby shots Mom’s and Dad’s love so much.  I’m pretty sure this will be the last quiet session for Monroe… after this, we’ll be chasing her all around the house and the yard for sure!



We’re getting a lot of requests lately for pictures of newborns with Mom or Dad’s guitar.  I love that, it’s so great to be able to incorporate something special like this.

      So glad you’re happy with them, Lindsay! Don’t worry about choosing, that’s why we’ll come to you for the proofing session… so you can see them all in your home where you’ll be hanging them, and we can help you! I’m looking forward to showing you the rest, she’s such a beautiful baby!

  14. kara carey says:

    I love the pictures, they are so precious and give her personality!! the vividness of the colors are beautiful. i love that her little hands are folded in one of them. Just perfect!!

  15. These are adorable, Lindsey, but some day she will probably say, Mom, I was naked!!! :) Love the fact that she slept in all of them. Mine never would do that!!

    • Rina says:

      haha, Anissa, that will make them priceless as embarrassment material when Monroe starts dating. :) You’d be surprised about your babies sleeping, Anissa… if we schedule a session early enough (within the first two weeks) and set up the space heaters and heating pads and keep everything low-key enough, we can almost always keep them asleep during their session! Unfortunately, it doesn’t really work that way with teenage boys or husbands, though. ;)

    • Reeca Carver says:

      I love them all it will be hard to choose Lindsey guess she just takes after her mom for looks but now as for sleeeping?? I think as I recall that is a different story!
