Sharing this favorite of Layla today to break the radio silence! Now that the busiest part of my wedding season is quickly coming to a close I’m excited to share more on this account. Life update: Olivia will be turning 9 months tomorrow! And I still haven’t shared her 8 month pics. 🤦🏻♀️ I’m a little behind but the quiet of winter is coming and with that comes time to catch up! What are you most looking forward to this winter? #idaliaphotographynewborns
This is Lea, everyone! I met her parents over four years ago when I got to work with them at a wedding I was photographing. They were the planners that day and we clicked. They are the kindest and (funniest!) couple and I was so excited for them when I heard they were expecting! It was so fitting that Lea was my last newborn of 2019. I couldn't have asked for sweeter clients to end my season with. 💕
Meet Lily and her big brother Vincent. I shot their parents' wedding over five years ago and have loved following along on their journey. 💕 Vincent is so excited to be a big brother; Lily is so lucky to have a protective older brother!
Introducing Jordyn! I’m working on this little peanut’s session this week and oh my goodness she is so sweet! She is the first of the three girls I had the honor of working with over the last couple of weeks and my third to last newborn session of the year. 😮 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I decided to take November and December off from newborn sessions to focus on the rest of my wedding season and to work on some other projects too. I may finally have time to share more photos of all the babies I got to work with this year! Maybe I’ll even find the time to get back to blogging them too. 🥰 But for now, enjoy this squishy face!! #idaliaphotographynewborns
Miles! A sweet little face to along with his sweet personality. This little guy is the third of three siblings! His parents now have two boys and a girl. 💕#idaliaphotographynewborns
Olivia is SEVEN months old! She has hit so many milestones this month! She is crawling, pulling herself up into standing position, and walking while holding onto her walker. She loves to eat but hates eating with a bib. Luckily, she is usually a neat eater, ha! She sleeps 9-9.5 hours at night and gives us two naps per day, each one of them 1-3 hours each. She's such a good baby and a joy to be around and we can't remember what life was like before she entered the world. We are so thankful for this precious little person. #oliviaclairemonthly #documentingbabypeterson
This sweet family just snagged the second to last remaining holiday mini-session spot! Eek I'm so excited to see them again, along with so many more of my past newborns and their families. 🥰 I just launched these sessions on Wednesday to my email list and there is already only ONE spot remaining! I am so thankful! If you're interested but not on my email list, DM me so I can add you and send you all the details. The holidays are right around the corner! 🎄I may have booked two minis for my own Livie girl. 😍
Jake and his big brother, Leo, who I photographed as a newborn almost two years ago! I just love seeing families grow and how sweet is it that these two brothers are so close in age? They'll be such great buddies! 💕 #idaliaphotographynewborns
Meet Charlotte Jane! Such a sweet little girl and I found out during her session that she's the little cousin of one of my past brides! Such a small world! Charlotte slept so well during her session and made my job so easy. I loved snuggling her! #idaliaphotographynewborns
A little late, but it's here - Olivia's SIX month photo shoot! Our sweet girl turned six months old last week and we are loving witnessing all her milestones. She loves to eat her cereal for breakfast and veggies for dinner and makes the most adorable faces when she tastes new flavors. She is so active! Last month she started to sit up on her own but this month she actually gets herself into a seated position by herself. She also loves going on all fours and is experimenting with crawling. She only knows how to scoot backwards right now but we think crawling is coming soon! She gets herself into standing position in her crib so we had to lower her mattress a couple of weeks ago. She loves to stand and jump, too! She still has only two teeth but they are the cutest little teeth. Her hair stays pretty flat now that it's longer - we miss her crazy hair but are looking forward to cute pigtails, ha! #oliviaclairemonthly #documentingbabypeterson
It’s hard to believe but this little lady is turning six months next week! Time is flying and we’re doing our best to enjoy every minute of this season with her but gosh, why does she have to grow so fast? She is already crawling backwards. Forward crawling coming soon. 😂😂😂 #documentingbabypeterson
Mack!! He is destined to be a professional model some day. I mean, look at that eye contact! I photographed his parents when they got married almost three years ago, their first baby over a year ago, and now here is their little man! He has come to complete this family of four so perfectly! Congrats, Lindsay, Andrew, and Scarlett!
Here is Adalyn! Don't you just love her name? What an adorable baby and I love how comfy she looks in her big sister's arms. 💕 So much cuteness in one little square!
Meet Grayson! What a sweetheart! This little guy's parents found me when they were still living in Seattle and planning to move to NJ. I don't know how his mama did it but she survived a cross-country move while very pregnant, had a baby in a new state, and was stunning and joyful on the day of Grayson's newborn session. Happy family!
Introducing Everett! I caught the cutest yawn from him and this is basically exactly how I'm feeling today after getting back from a trip out to San Francisco yesterday. Olivia was up bright and early this morning so no sleeping in for this jet-lagged mama. 😂 I ordered a Venti Caramel Macchiato and am currently waiting for my dasher to deliver it. I have to say that Door Dasher is the best.app.ever. 🙌🏻
Our sweet Olivia turned 5 months old this week! She has two bottom teeth and her two top teeth are about to make an appearance, too! She sits up unassisted and has mastered tummy time. She loves to roll around in her crib and on her play mat and is extremely active. She has the sweetest personality, loves to squeal, and is just the happiest baby! She brings us so much joy and we love her to pieces! 💕#oliviaclairemonthly #documentingbabypeterson
Introducing Kayla! She's the little cousin of the triplets I photographed last fall - isn't she adorable? And can we say how lucky she is to have three cousins so close in age?! Lucky girl! #idaliaphotographynewborns
Meet Mason! He's the son of one of my past couples whose wedding I photographed over two years ago and now they get to be parents to this little guy - what a joy! This handsome boy surprised his parents by coming a few weeks early but he has been gaining weight like a champ and has the cutest little cheeks! 💕
Introducing Oliver! What a guy! I met him just last week and am loving this shot of him with his gorgeous hair peeking out. 💕 #idaliaphotographynewborns
Olivia is now four months old! She rolls over from back to belly like a champ and loves to sleep on her belly. She squeals and shrieks a ton and loves to talk to anyone who will talk back to her. She has made dramatic improvements with tummy time but it's still not her favorite position. She has discovered her hair! We find her reaching for it and hanging onto a few strands or rubbing it against her head. We love playing with her and seeing all her little developments - it seems like every week brings new things and we continue to fall in love with her more and more each day. Life with our Livie girl is just full of pure joy. At her last doctor's visit we discovered that she is in fact 24.75 inches this month so there must've been a mistake with last month's measurements so she is in fact in the 76th percentile for height. I believe her hair is still in the 100th percentile for length. Oh, and she cut one tooth already! #oliviaclairemonthly #documentingbabypeterson
Layla! The daughter of one of my former students from my teaching days. 🥰What a sweetheart and I loved seeing her mommy and daddy as parents! #idaliaphotographynewborns
I had the best day yesterday celebrating Jay‘s first Father’s Day! This little girl is so lucky to have a daddy who puts her at the center of his world and takes care of her in the best way possible! I have just loved seeing him turn into the most amazing father during the last four months! I seriously won the lottery with this guy and then won it again with our absolutely perfect little girl. 💕 #documentingbabypeterson
Happy unofficial start of summer from our Livie girl! Hope you enjoy the day with family and friends! #documentingbabypeterson
Introducing AJ! Little Anthony Joseph came to see me at 12 days old and he was such a joy to photograph. I love how calm he was and that face was just too cute! #idaliaphotographynewborns
Our little Livie girl turned three months old last week! She has discovered her voice and is so very talkative. She has learned to roll over onto her side but she's not a fan of tummy time. She practices every day so hopefully she'll get better at being on her belly over the next month. Much to mommy and daddy's surprise, she is in the 90th percentile for height! We're not sure where she gets that from! Her hair hasn't stopped growing so I think she's in the 100th percentile for hair length! #oliviaclairemonthly #documentingbabypeterson
Meet Amelia! This little peanut arrived five weeks early and was born at just 5lbs 5oz so we waited a couple of extra weeks to do her session and here she is at 6.5 lbs already! All those night feedings paid off. 👏🏻 On another note, how gorgeous is this teal? I fall more and more in love with this color each time! #idaliaphotographynewborns ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . . . . . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #njnewbornphotographer #njbabyphotographer #newborn #newbornphotographer #newjerseybabyphotographer #newjerseynewbornphotographer #newbornphotography #sweetbaby #instababy #babyphotography #njnewbornphotography #njnewborns #cutebaby #cutebabyclub #babylove #njbaby #njbabyphotography #njnewbornbaby #jerseybaby
Introducing Makayla and her proud parents! I absolutely love when parents want to be included in the photos with their little ones. I know Makayla will some day love seeing this photo of her in her parents' arms. 💕
Meet Sophia! I photographed her brother Peter a little over two years ago and he gave me the best smiles. (Swipe for proof!) I couldn’t believe when his sister did the same thing! And can we talk about the resemblance? More of this April baby coming soon! #idaliaphotographynewborns
My mornings with Livie are my absolute favorite part of the day with her. They start when she wakes up around 5 or 6am when it's still dark out and the house is quiet. I take her out of the bassinet in our room and take her to the nursery where I nurse her and she gives me soft and adorable smiles while she dream feeds. I then put her into her crib to catch a couple more hours of sleep while I get some me-time. She wakes up again around 7 or 8am and is always such a joy. When she opens her eyes she gives me the best smiles and cutest little squeals. We sit for a while and share sweet moments together while I talk and read to her until it’s time to start our day. I am so grateful for these mornings and know I'll always cherish them. I’m also so grateful to her daddy who does the middle of the night feeding so I can sleep. 🙌🏻 I am just loving this sweet chapter. 💕 Mamas, what's your favorite part of your day with your little one? I'd love to know! #documentingbabypeterson
Olivia got to hang out with her cousins Leyla and Zoe today so of course I had to get a photo of them together. Leyla is 6 yrs old, Zoe is 8 months, and Livie is 10 weeks. I already know these girls will be besties and it fills me with so much joy. 💕 #documentingbabypeterson
