Sweet vintage style baby portraits ~ Kailua studio baby session

With the sweetest of curls and the longest of lashes, this beautiful baby girl brought charm and lots of fun to her session. Don’t let her poses fool you- this is one busy little lady!

She was full of smiles and curiosity. This age is one of my absolute favorites- baby’s personality shines, and the chubby cheeks and gummy grins won’t last much longer.

Even though she was on the go, this new to me vintage crib provided a few moments of quiet containment before she figured out how to plot her escape.

If your baby is between 6-9 months, now is the perfect time to schedule! The studio closet has sweet vintage and classic modern clothing for babies of all ages, so all you need to bring is your baby and your diaper bag to create beautiful portraits.

Big sister, little brother ~ Kailua studio newborn

Sibling newborn portraits in Kailua

Miss K was proud to introduce me to her one week old baby brother. During her session nearly two and a half years ago, I photographed one of the best and biggest newborn smiles I’d ever seen! Lucky for me, little Mr. K was just as smiley (and remarkably mellow), and they both did wonderfully.

Newborn portrait details

Baby K was the first client in the new Kailua studio, located upstairs from Frost (formerly Yogurt Mama) and across the street from Zippy’s. We actually did two sessions- a full newborn and then a mini, as the studio bed wasn’t quite ready the first time. And I’m so glad we did, as the lifestyle feel of everyone cuddled up is something special. I can’t wait to capture more moments like this with new and growing families.

Of course, we also used a few props and the sweetness of a new baby wrapped in a soft knit contrasts beautifully with the weathered floor. And those bitty details- it’s hard to remember my own kids’ hands this tiny.

I’m so glad I was able to capture these first weeks of love and joy for this family of 4, and I know these siblings will grow to be fast friends all too quickly.
