April and Baby R. - Rock Hill, SC Baby & Newborn Photography

If you need a dose of cuteness today, then look no further! Meet April and Baby R! This little guy was 3 months old and already out of the newborn stage, but, as you can see, that didn't mean we couldn't get some adorable photos and work in some cool props.

I love photographing older babies as they check out the world with their bright, wide awake eyes! Quite different from sleepy newborns, although I love them too for different reasons. Baby R. already had quite the personality and I think you can see it shining through in his photos.
In addition to being a fantastic new momma, April is also a talented writer and filmmaker! She contributes regularly to The Charlotte Observer and has also championed street art and performers in Charlotte, NC and other areas around the country. You can learn more about her cause and see examples of her work on the BUSK! Facebook page and website, her Vimeo page, and the March Blake Media Facebook page and website.
April wasn't really expecting to be in the photos, but I couldn't resist a few snaps of that momma love! I think we can all agree that there is nothing better than sweet baby kisses! As you can see, April's natural beauty meant that she looked gorgeous, even though she wasn't prepared for a photo shoot.
My husband and I started decorating our home with antique toys and other vintage items. We have a great time "antiquing" on the weekends. Don't tell him that part of my criteria for things that I want to buy is whether or not I can pose a baby in or on it! This vintage Pepsi crate was one of our recent finds and this little guy thoroughly enjoyed being propped up in it on a super soft fuzzy blanket.

If you're kicking yourself for missing out on having professional newborn photos taken of your little one, then contact me today to schedule a baby session instead! Your baby might be out of the sleepy newborn stage, but that doesn't mean we can't get some fun photos to document this special and quickly changing time in his or her life!
