Isabelle’s sibling newborn session ~ Kailua Hawaii Newborn and Family Photographer

It doesn’t get much sweeter than sisterhood, and big sister Taylor was so excited to show off her little sister Isabelle. I photographed Taylor as a newborn, and she’s featured in the Client Guide as the tiny newborn with a huge grin! She still has a gorgeous smile, and was happy to tell me about everything she’s been up to lately. I love seeing families return, and I will never get over just how quickly those little babies turn into big kids!

Isabelle arrived early, just over a month before her due date, and did so well she was able to come home in time for Christmas. A little unexpected but definitely the best gift of the season. She was almost too big for the tiny fur lined hooded romper, but snuggled perfectly into the bitty crib (handmade by me and a great prop for babies of all ages).

She looked precious and perfect in pink and peach- look at those little cheeks filling out already. I recently received the pink headband from Polka Dot Poppy so she was the first to model it. New props and accessories arrive monthly to offer a large selection and ensure your portraits are just as unique as your baby.

Tiny fingers and toes, ears and lips- these details of your baby grow and change so quickly! Newborn ear fuzz shows just how brand new they are. The soft mohair romper coordinates nicely with the fun, feminine floral wreath for babies to snuggle right in.

Family portraits are such a great way to welcome and celebrate a new baby. With older siblings, mixing things up with more lifestyle and candid poses is a good way to keep up their spirits and hold their attention while capturing real expressions. And even the most camera shy of parents beam at their newborn babies. After all, new baby smell is one of the best scents! It’s almost impossible not to kiss a baby snuggled in close.

Baby L’s sweet pink newborn session – Kailua Hawaii Newborn Photographer

Swaddled awake newborn portraits

Baby L visited the studio for her first portraits at 3 weeks old and over 11lbs! She’s one of the biggest newborns I’ve photographed, and I absolutely love her delicious cheeks and full head of hair. She was very awake and curious, but soon settled into dreamland and did wonderfully for her studio portrait session.

Her parents requested pink and flowers for her newborn session, and I think we nailed it! Pink is definitely her color, and that little grin is perfection. The basket poses show off her cute cheeks and bitty fingers.


Family portraits in studio with newborn baby girl, Hawaii

While family poses looking at the camera are a given, more casual and candid portraits of babies and parents together truly capture the bond and the joy of a new little one. Who hasn’t marveled over those precious, perfect details of their newborn? Tiny kissable noses, fingers, and toes, and the little sighs in their sleep. Doesn’t she look secure and content in daddy’s arms?

She also brought her grandma, who was absolutely besotted with her new granddaughter. Sometimes grandparents are a bit shy about being photographed, but I always offer to include them for a special portrait- and I love capturing 3 generations together. You can feel how much little L is loved.
