Brooks Turns One (Greenville SC Baby Photographer)

This sweet boy was all smiles for his one year portraits this spring.  I had the joy of meeting him as a newborn and following him through his first year.  Baby bundles are a great way to capture your baby’s milestones during the first year while receiving discounts on session fees and products.  Brooks had a Cinco de Mayo birthday party theme for his first birthday and he loved eating his first cupcake during his cake smash session at the end of his one year portraits.  I loved watching Brooks grow from his newborn session to his first birthday at his home in the Greenville area.  I look forward to capturing your little one as well. If you are interested in newborn photography and live in the upstate, I am now booking for due dates in October and moving forward.  Be sure to ask about baby bundle packages as well when you contact Katie at katie@seekjoyphotography.com

Newborn Lilia {Newborn Photographer in Greenville, SC}

Greer Newborn PhotographerOne of the things I love about being a newborn photographer in the Greenville area, is the fact that parents entrust me with their tiny new babies.  Lilia Grace was born a little early; therefore, she was petite and small.  The little noises she made reminded me of a mouse–sweet and small.  Like most newborns, Lilia felt safest when swaddled.  Swaddling a baby tight with their arms secure by their side is a great way to soothe them as it prevents their startle reflex from waking them up again. I was able to get several shots of her in her birthday suit as well once she fell into a deeper sleep. Lilia had several hand made items she wore during her photography session with me. She was around the holidays as well as the Super Bowl.  The knit items worked well to go along with both of these themes-especially since her parents are Packer Fans. Lilia is the first grand baby in her family as well.  This session was a result of her grandmother providing a gift certificate to the new parents.  Providing gift certificates to new parents is always a great idea as this results in family heirloom art that only gains value over time.  If you are interested in purchasing a gift certificate for someone expecting, be sure to contact us at katie@seekjoyphotography.com to find out more details!

Newborn Jack {Greenville Newborn Photography}

Greenville Newborn Photographer

Baby Jack was such a sweet cuddle bug for his newborn session.  One of the largest newborns I have photographed to date, Jack slept like a champ and was quite alert at times as well.  Every baby is different and I tailor the newborn photography session to accommodate what each baby likes as far as positions as well as props that are safe for their size.  I used my largest basket for baby Jack (this is the same basket that I fit twins in together for comparison)  to ensure he was safe and to provide some variety to the gallery.

Towards the end of the three hour session, we incorporated family portraits with newborn Jack.  These are sometimes the sweetest moments as I get to see the new parents interact with their new baby.  We were even able to get the family dog in the photos. I only allow this if the pet is well mannered, follows voice commands, and gentle around the newborn.  Though we did have to use many treats, the end results were sweet shots with the whole family.

It is not uncommon for parents to choose a color palette for the newborn photography that matches the nursery or home decor.  This works well when planning ahead and knowing you want wall art.  In this case, Jack’s parents know they are moving in the next year.  Therefore, they chose an heirloom album containing their favorite images from the session.  Once again, the color scheme used during the session allowed for the album pages to coordinate throughout the album.

Thank you Simpson family for allowing me to be a part of this journey with you!  Here are a few of my favorites from Jack’s session in Greenville.
