Riley's Newborn Preview - Baton Rouge Baby Photographer

You all should feel like you know this family by now. They have appeared on the blog here here here here here and here... whew!! They mean so much to me.. after all they were my first birth session and who can forget Ry's smiley face? These are now from our second newborn session at 2 weeks old. Still smiling... but I can tell a slight change already in just a week. My they grow so fast! She was battling her sleep this time... so any snooze we managed I was snapping like crazy. I love that first one with Sarah... can you believe the little cutie was giving me the grin again? LOVE HER!
I love this next one because of Ry's expression... she is quite the model at only 2 weeks old. She was shooting me some attitude with those big eyes... looking straight at me. I'm amazed at how they have defined personalities at such a young age. She knew it was picture time... so that meant lets mess around with Abby and see how long it takes before she gives up and lets me sleep in peace - maybe I should poopsie on her... haha! Not at all, Miss Riley behaved very well and I have no complaints.
Big brother Pax was definitely more concerned with my bag of Starburst than taking pictures... not only that but they were getting ready to have a father/son trip right after the shoot... so how can I compete with that? Sarah's brother also welcomed a little one into the family a week after Ry was born. [ I can only imagine how much fun it will be when these two are grown up... to have your cousin a week apart in age from you... awesome play-dates, schoolmates, shopping together... ] So, since they lived close by we tried to get a couple of both the newborns together. This was a tough one... getting them both sleepy and still enough not to wake each other up was very difficult. Especially since they were on different feeding and napping schedules. I've never worked with newborn twins but I can predict it would go something like the other day. Still, I love a challenge... and can't wait for the day it happens.
James and I leave to New York this week... [ just in case I don't post before ] I will have my phone/computer with me so you can always reach me. We are going to actually try to stay away from anything hectic and work related and have some fun... just relax. Not quite what I imagine NYC for... relaxation in the city that never sleeps? Haha we can't wait. I am sure we will have lots of pictures and stories for all our friends. In the meantime - I am working on a special engagement session... that's what's up next!


  1. Okay so I am sure you are sick of hearing from me, but you are so amazing. Each picture I look at it makes me realize how blessed I am with my family and you are always able to capture these precious moments. You definitely have the skill of patience after the last shoot with two kids, well actually three!!! Thanks for everything I can't wait to get my hands on some of these.

  2. I completely agree with Sarah. Sarah you have a beautiful family so that makes it even easier for Abby to capture good shots of y'all. I know you will pleased with the outcome of all your pictures. There was so many great pictures Abby took during this shoot that im sure its going to be hard to decide.

  3. haha Sarah has such a knack for brightening up my day. Thank you Sarah for your kind words and compliments here and on facebook. They mean so much to me! I miss my little Ri model too. Can't wait to get together tonight and look at the whole bunch together. Like James said... it's going to be tough to decide... :)
