Little Bud Photography
Cameron, North Carolina
This was a lifestyle newborn session (My first with an actual newborn! Previous to this session the youngest baby I’d worked with was 6 weeks old.) at my clients’ home. Baby Elise was 4 days old on the day of our session and was as sweet as can be. I wanted this session to feel cozy, intimate, and to convey a sense of contentment. This family is so much fun and so kind and I know they were overjoyed to be bringing home a second daughter. There’s also a feeling of relaxation and family that I think exists when it is a second baby instead of a first and I wanted that to come across as well.
I really discovered photography in a serious way 2 years ago when I bought a DSLR before my husband’s second deployment. He’s active duty Army and would be gone for a year. Since our daughter was 6 months old and I didn’t want him to miss a moment with her I decided to do a photo-a-day project for him and upload at least one picture of her each day. During that year I became obsessed with photography and I learned as much as I could, bought a couple of new lenses, and fell in love with taking pictures.
I only decided this past fall to transition to professional photography and after a few months of portfolio-building I officially started my business in January 2013. I absolutely love working with all of my clients but my heart is truly in newborn/baby/and child photography and I’d like to specialize in newborn and child photography as I grow my business.
