Baby Nolan | Kingsport newborn photographer

There is nothing more flattering than when a family returns to you for their photos.  It makes my day!  I photographed this darling big sister as a newborn and it was such a privilege to photograph her brother.  Isn’t he darling?  They brought some props that were meaningful to them:  Dad’s childhood truck, a milk pail, a set of antlers, and a vintage baseball.  And because dad used to coach basketball at King College, we of course had to try a basketball shot.  Not gonna lie.  It was a challenge.  But I think it turned out great!  I’m getting super excited about my own little boy making his entrance into the world soon.  2016-05-16_00012016-05-16_00022016-05-16_00032016-05-16_00052016-05-16_00062016-05-16_00072016-05-16_00082016-05-16_00092016-05-16_0010

Rhea is 3 months old | Kingsport Lifestyle Photographer

One of my VERY favorite sessions from the Baby’s First Year Plan is the 3 month session.  From my own experience, 3 month old babies don’t really do a whole lot.  But they’re DARLING.  They are just starting to smile well and interact with you and have typically put on some weight, making those cheeks just so darn cute.  Moms aren’t usually as overwhelmed as they can be at a newborn session and are starting to get into more of a routine.  But photographing them?  I find doing a formal portrait session to be limiting.  The solution?  A lifestyle session.  These sessions take place in your OWN home when you get to show me what life with your baby is like.  The baby is typically more comfortable and relaxed and we are able to create photos that will be cherished forever.  These are the photos that I look back on from when my kids were little and make me the most nostalgic.  The Baby’s First Year Plan includes 5 photo shoots of the course of a year.  Shouldn’t at least one of them be a lifestyle session?

One of the most memorable things about this particular photoshoot was when Rhea kept looking at her momma and smiling, which is darling in and of itself.  But her DAD kept saying, “Are you looking at your momma?  She’s pretty isn’t she?”  Every new mom deserves to be spoken to that way.  It’s those types of moments that really make me love my job.  2016-04-12_00022016-04-12_00032016-04-12_00042016-04-12_00052016-04-12_00062016-04-12_00072016-04-12_0008

Baby Violet | Kingsport newborn photographer

When this father told me they had named their daughter Violet, I was so excited that I had purple on hand!  I loved being able to make this photo a little more special for them.  These parents have been living in the U.S. for a few years now and were so excited to welcome their sweet daughter into their family.  Her mother and his father were able to fly all the way from China to be with them for the first few months of her life.  Although they didn’t speak English, I loved having them here for her photos.  It was obvious how much they adore this little girl.  2016-01-27_00562016-01-27_00542016-01-27_0055I have to admit that (being a biased mother of five children myself), I’ve always felt badly for Chinese families who have been limited to either bearing only one child or paying massive fees to have more.  But these two spoke very fondly of being only children.  They made the beautiful point that the child has not only it’s parents, but both sets of grandparents completely devoting their lives to raising her.  Isn’t that amazing?  Good luck to you, Fang family!  You have a lot of joy ahead of you!2016-01-27_0053

Emmaline’s 6 month photos | Kingsport baby photographer

It is always so fun to see Ms. Emmaline! As a Denim and Lace Photography Baby Plan baby, I get to see her every three months. She is so happy and so smiley. We were done with these photos in record time. It helps, too, that big brother is always happy to tag along. We did these at Warrior’s Path State Park in Kingsport and I think they turned out just lovely! It is always amazing to me to see just how quickly these babies grow. You can see her 3 month photos here, her newborn photos here, and her mom’s maternity photos https://denimandlacephotography.com/2014/10/10/falyn-kingsport-maternity-photographer/.

Baby Joey | Kingsport newborn photographer

One of the greatest things about being a photographer is seeing these sweet babies grow up. This little guy’s older sister was my first newborn who slept through the entire session. Seriously, she didn’t make a peep. It was so wonderful seeing her again. Even though her new little brother did wake up during his session, he was still an angel. What lucky parents to have two such beautiful children! Thank you for letting me photograph them, Lisa!
