{simply baby} birmingham alabama newborn photographer

I am launching a new newborn option at the cottage studio for the spring… the Simply Baby mini session.  These are special only for our April and May newborns.:)

This is for newborns 2 weeks old or less and for baby and baby only.  This option allows one background and one prop (bucket/basket/moon, etc.) resulting in 10 beautiful, timeless portraits of your sweet newborn.  You will also receive a set of 25 birth announcements along with your session as well as 25% off any additional prints you may wish to purchase. (option to purchase additional digital files as well!)  You can browse through many, many announcement designs and products I offer while you are at the studio for your session!:)

If you are looking for more variety in poses, colors, props, family and sibling shots- the regular studio newborn session would be the best option for you!:)

{sneak peek} birmingham alabama baby photographer

This morning I got to meet this adorable 4 month old baby boy along with his mom and big brother!  One of my best friends was in town for Hannah’s birthday party today so her oldest, Josephine “Joey” who is 10,  tagged along with me to be my sidekick for the day.  It was great to have her along and I had a blast with everyone as we photographed this little one’s 4 month portraits.

It was so wonderful to meet you all… here’s a little peek from this morning!:)
