Joyful Baby T – Kailua newborn session

Little Miss T was full of smiles for her session!

Her mom contacted me when she was nearly 2 weeks old and luckily I had a last minute newborn opening as my next tiny client hadn’t yet arrived earthside. While most newborn photographers have a cutoff date around 12-14 days, I often find “older” newborns do just as well if not better than those under a week old and T was no exception. She was perfectly curly and sleepy.

I love the huge grin getting cuddles from mama! Both mom and dad adore their baby girl and she was quite content in their arms.

Newborns are only this tiny once, and the scale (set to birth weight) is a great way to show their size. The butterfly headband was a new prop I recently got in studio and she modeled it beautifully! I’m always adding new props (and yes, selling old ones) so there’s always something fresh and unique. The basket pose was a new setup- when I heard her nursery was cream, gray, and pink I knew these colors would be perfect.

Oh, those tiny details! Macro images are some of my favorites, capturing the smallest of details. I think she has mom’s lips!

Thank you again K family! I’m so glad things worked out so I could meet you and your sweet baby girl. She is an absolute delight and wonderful things await her 🙂

To book your newborn session, email me at In a given month I only have 1-2 last minute openings available, so I recommend booking early! October is nearly full and limited November and December dates are available.
