Every year around Thanksgiving, K.D. Elise Photography hosts a Baby Bump Contest on Facebook. Entrants send in a photo of their pregnant bellies, and friends and family like their photo to vote for them. The winner of the contest wins free newborn baby photos, and a free newborn photography session. It’s one of my favorite contests of the year, and there’s always a lot of entries and tons of votes!

Maxx’s mom first saw me for maternity photos, which turned out gorgeous! She entered one of those photos in the Baby Bump Contest and won. Just a few short weeks later baby Maxx made his entrance into the world and we did his newborn photos.

Maxx had the most gorgeous skin which looked so perfect with the grays, browns and blues that I pulled for his session. We incorporated baseballs into his mom’s maternity session so we made sure to use them again for Maxx’s newborn photos.

For their wedding, Maxx’s mom and dad incorporated items from the movie UP. They chose to keep with the UP theme for a special image for Maxx’s nursery. It was so fun to get to use some very special items from their wedding! The little house was hand built just for them so it was especially meaningful. I absolutely love how Maxx’s UP themed newborn photo turned out!

Most of the babies that come to my studio for newborn portraits are in their second week of life. However, if you’ve missed that window and still want photos of your new baby I’d encourage you to get in touch with me anyway. It is still possible to get beautiful newborn portraits of your older baby, even up to a month old or a bit older. As a newborn photographer I’m experienced working with older newborns and keeping them happy and sleepy for those sweet photographs.

Aneal’s mom contacted me when he was almost a month old and we did his newborn photos a few days later. He LOVED being all wrapped up and snuggled, and fell into a nice sleep.

We started his session with a cute little deer bonnet, and he just looked so adorable in it!

To help Aneal fall into a really nice, deep sleep I kept him wrapped for a bit longer. We switched out his little deer hat for a bear bonnet in a few shots, then used some blues, grays and cream which looked so perfect on him. Aneal really liked having his little hands up by his face.

Towards the end of our time together Aneal woke up and let me get some super cute photos with his eyes open. Then, at the very end as I was talking to him he gave me his first real smile! It was such a special moment.
