They say that what you do on New Year’s Day will determine how the rest of your year goes. I’m not really sure who “they” are, nor am I entirely convinced that the theory would actually hold water. After all, I spent all New Year’s Day last year laying on the couch watching Netflix and certainly didn’t spend all year last year binging “Scandal”. If there’s anything at all to it though, this year I’m going to have a wonderful year full of sweet and easy newborns thanks to Miss Cora.

Cora’s mama contacted me a few days before Christmas about a newborn session. Cora was a little over a month old and I wanted to get her in as soon as possible so they came in on New Year’s Day.

Despite being nearly six weeks old at that point, sweet Cora was the most easy going baby girl. She slept like an absolute dream, and snuggled into every pose I put her in. Her parents requested a neutral color scheme and it was such a fun change! I pulled out all the creams and tans for Cora’s session and I absolutely love how it all came together.

Over the winter I had a mama in who really, really wanted a snowy maternity session. I myself am not a lover of the fluffy white stuff, I much prefer to be snuggled up warm and cozy inside. This very special mama though has a fondness for snow and last winter just wasn’t bringing us much here in Pueblo, CO.

Towards the end of winter I spent a weekend driving through the mountains trying to track down a spot that would perfect for our session. After looking and looking I couldn’t find anything near town and mama and I were started to come to terms with having to do the session without snow. March came and went, and we made it to the middle of April very dry.

Then one beautiful morning in April we woke up to a wintery wonderland! There was snow still falling and on the ground, but there were also blossoms on all of the trees. It was such a pretty scene! We decided to brave the snow that was still coming down and head out to City Park for a quick maternity session. I was so impressed with this beautiful mom to be! In between shots we covered her up to keep her warm, but goodness it was cold!

Despite the cold, and my general dislike for snow I think snow maternity portraits may actually be some of my favorites!
